On this tour, discover the city through the eyes of an Ottawa local and enjoy a personalized itinerary custom-made for you. Your ‘Lokafyer’ guide is no typical tour guide—instead, they will show you around the city like a friend and take you to the neighborhoods, museums, markets, and restaurants that they know and love.
  • Connect with an Ottawa local who will show you around their city
  • Custom-made itinerary: discuss your preferences with your guide in advance
  • Tips and recommendations on where to eat, drink, and shop in the city

Waste of time and money, false advertising
, Aug. 2021
This tour was nothing "like a local". It was a walk around the parliament hill with barely any information to enhance the relevance. I had taken the time to write a short description of myself to my guide to help come up with an interesting itinerary, but it was useless as this was not meant to be a local tour at all. Would not recommend to anyone, and the customer service is terrible. False advertising.

Hello Sarah, Our apologies for not responding to this review sooner since Trip Advisor reviews are not automatically notified to us. I'm sorry to hear that your tour didn't meet your expectations. Our Lokafyers generally contact travelers before their tour to discuss tour plans, since every tour is customized. During our discussion with the Lokafyer, it became clear she had not contacted you to discuss the tour plan in advance. Our oversight here is apparent from your feedback. We have offered you a partial refund for your experience with us and hope that you feel confident to try us again in the future- we will make sure that we only match you with someone that meets your requirements. Safe Travels! Regards, Vinita
