Very well done..we took the evening tour on Sunday (Labour Day W/end). Very atmospheric. Suited the mood. The story teller was considerate and spoke loudly. We didn't miss a thing. Would highly recommend as a good history lesson, as well, as being a tad creepy!!

Celeste was a phenomenal guide! We were lucky enough to be the only guests for the tour. She was very informative and kept us as dry as possible throughout the whole tour as it was raining. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if it’s your first time in Ottawa!
