Having been to Ottawa over 30 times, I had only come for specific events or only spent a weekend in the area around Parliament. This tour fulfilled my desire to see the wider Ottawa area. It was informative and provided historic perspectives, too.

Interesting facts about the Rideau Canal. Crossing into Quebec by one bridge & returning to Ottawa by the MacDonal-Cartier bridge. Saw many historical buildings, parks, monuments, gardens & pathways especially near the canal. Enjoyed going to Rockcliff area & seeing beautiful countryside & the Ottawa River. Many interesting facts relayed bilingually by tour guide.

Great Overview of Ottawa

Great tour of the city's best highlights. The running commentary was informative and lightly humorous. We did the loop twice with different tour guides - both were great. I wish they had stopped the bus at each station even when people were not getting on or off just so we could take pictures safely.

It was a great to see all the highlights of the city. Our tour guide was good, but her English was hard to understand. She spoke a bit too fast, but she was enlightening and comical at times. Would do again!

Beautiful tour and the best way to discover the city. The bus left on time, you have to be present at least 30 min in advance to get an upper deck seat. The guide was excellent!

I found our tour guide very knowledgeable. He was thorough and answered questions expertly. Because many museums are closed on Monday and some on Tuesday as well, must be included in advertising.

A great and informative way to see Ottawa. We had two kids with us and they loved the double decker ride. If we had planned it better, we would have arranged a trip to the aviation museum and hopped back on to continue the ride. Take a hat - it’s hot up there. And line up at least 15 min before to make sure you get seats up top.

One of the most memorable trips. These guys are very professional and fun loving folks. The kind of information the guide provides you in 90 mins is amazing. You need to take this trip on day 1. One would get to understand what should be planned for day 2. Preferably start early in the day.
