The tour is a great into to Ottawa. Not a boring tour, includes the stories about the foundation of the city, several buildings/monuments, history... Very interactive as well. We are from Belgium and it was nice to hear about the Canadian history - something we don't really get in touch with here in Europe.

The most amazing display of tulips. Unbelievable colors. Most don't even look like your average tulip. Spent hours just wondering through the many well kept beds. Can walk along the canal as well

Great for new and old people in Ottawa looking for a little more history. I did tours in parliament and he did not repeat anything that was said, it was all new stuff :D Really friendly guide who was happy to make good restaurant suggestions too.

We took the tour today with Craig....thought it was among the best tours we have taken in our travels. Extremely informative and well done. Craig definitely knows the city and it's history. Our teenagers really enjoyed it also, remembering several facts later when we walked from the market to our hotel. Thank you for a great tour....highly recommend to anyone... More

I went on the walking tour led by Katie my first day in Ottawa. It was a great introduction to the city and allowed me to plan out what I wanted to do the rest of my stay there. The tour went around Parliament Hill, the War Memorial, Sparks Street, and the Byward Market. Katie was very knowledgeable and a... More

Overall a great and pleasant experience to visit Ottawa on May. Have been to The Rideau Canal, Parliament Hill and part of the huge crowd enjoying the beautiful tulips in sunbath. It was a casual walking tour. Drove from Toronto to Ottawa in 4 hours with two drive through. Suggestions for casual tour people if you are a first time... More

Craig is lively, interesting and knows his beloved city very well. I learnt a lot about areas and monuments I wouldn't have taken the time to see had i not done... More
