The Burgh Bits and Bites Food Tour takes place in Pittsburgh and locates some of the most tasty food vendors and fantastic eateries in the Steel City’s busy hub of culinary delights and delicious food. The Bits and Bites Tour was established in 2008 and encourages people from all walks of life to join their tour, as they wish to treat everybody like reconnoitering foodies on the hunt for the best food Pittsburgh has to offer.
Burgh Bits and Bites Food Tour – Team
Sylvia has a strong team of tour guides and they all believe that exploring the neighborhood and experiencing the local food gives you a unique perspective on the local community. Each member of Sylvia’s 10+ team has a distinctive outlook on their love for food and food tourism and they each have a story that links them to the food tour. Michelle, for example, is a mother of 2 who found a passion for cooking, left her desk job, and combined her love for food and customer service. Another, Valerie, has a passion for all foods around the world and loves to travel. In all, the Burgh Bits and Bites Food Tour is superbly well handled and well worth the while.
