“IS BEAUTIFUL BUT NOT IMPRESSIVE”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

After seeing Niagara Falls and Montmorency Falls at Quebec, Rideau Falls is like their baby.Is easy to find as you visit Ottawa and is very beautiful, but not impressive . Our driver stopped the bus to let us take same pictures and that's all.

“Gem in the City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This sight can be best visited while cycling around Rideau River, Rideau Locks and Rockcliffe Parkway areas. Very beautiful in the summer when I visited. Definitely. Worth a 15 minute stop for photos!

“Beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

In spring it's wonderful. In summer it's refreshing. Autumn adorns it in jewel colours. Winter makes it a frozen froth.

“Rideau Falls on Sussex Drive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Walk around have a picnic, go look at the falls, or take in the beauty of the place, while overlooking Gatineau. There are many embassies, in around the falls. Take your bike and have a tour up and down whie you follow the Ottawa Riber. It's nice

“Just interesting site when viewed from a boat on the Ottawa river”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Nothing Special about it. Ok When viewed from a boat ride on the Ottawa River... Can be more interesting when viewed during winter time, with ice around it.
