What people are saying about Ottawa

Comprehensive, educational, enjoyable, flexible, well led.

Carly was our tour leader who was excellent. She adjusted the shape of the tour to meet the requests of the 6 visitors. We had wonderful opportunities to see and visit the Royal Mint, the Senate House (which was newly in use), the market area etc. The river tour was very good with a change of guide who was sometimes difficult to hear clearly - but a great opportunity for photographs of the buildings and for refreshments (not scheduled but requested by the visitors and arranged by Carly - thank you!). We shared a very comfortable 7 seater 'car' and got know each other well enough to have discussion and ask quite challenging questions - Carly was quick with the answers. A 4 hour trip that extended to 8hrs - tiring but worth every minute. Thank you.

Given our unprecedented times of safety and concern, I can easily recommend this cruise as something to do in Ottawa and remain feeling safe. I was impressed by the fact that there were so few others on board which allowed all the passengers to remain socially distant and still enough room to walk about to take photos. We were greeted with sanitizer (which has become the new ‘hello’ for most) and advised of the COVID-19 protocol.

The guide Terry was a blast and he made the boat cruise pleasurable. It was informative and just enough interaction after which we were left to socialize with our party. The only thing is it rain terrible as such the rain flooded the deck and the crew really tried to clean up excess water, the cover were pulled to stop the rain from wetting us. Overall though the experience was great.

Yes we sure did. It was awesome and our tour guide did a fabulous job showing us sites with regards to the diplomatics, where they lived, their unique license plates, took us to places we not find on our own. Very well done. Great job would highly recommend to other visitors. Tracey Lawrence
