This was great. We've done the "Duck Boat" amphibious tour bus thing in other cities, and it never disappoints. A great way to get a feel for a new place, some history, some trivia, and some views from the water that are spectacular. Ottawa is...More

We took the 90 min. Tour it was very good. Our guide Marcel & bus driver Peter was a lot of fun, & very informative. We saw a lot that we wouldn't have seen if we just walked around.

For those visitors that find themselves in the same situation as traveler4000 and don't want to spend $15 on a taxi, you should be aware that you can catch a #129 OC Transpo bus at the aviation museum, which will get you to Hurdman station in 25 minutes, where you can transfer to any number of buses (95, 96, 97) which will get you downtown in a further 5 minutes. Buses run every 20 minutes on weekdays, less frequently on weekends. Fares are $1.90 with tickets, $3 cash. Alternatively, you...More
