Our Tour Guide will accompany your group of ten or more on your chartered bus or van Tuesday through Friday between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm from March through October. Tours are not scheduled the week before Memorial day because of flag placement and the large number of individual visitors.

A complimentary Guided Tour can be scheduled for 45 minutes or 2 hours to visit the historical grave sites of Stephen Foster, Lillian Russell, Rosey Rowswell, Josh Gibson, Charles Avery, Harry Kendall Thaw (Girl in the Red Velvet Swing), famous Military Figures and prominent Pittsburgh families.
