“Hop on and off”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a double Decker buss tour line. It took us through Ottawa and Gatineau with hopp off stops. The tour is narrated. Also if you disembarked the guide advised to check the schedule to getting back on bus. But he actually told you that it would return every hour. Very convenient way to see a lot.

“Good Trip”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Went on the Lady Dive on 20th August 2013. Very informative and interesting trip. Only one minor point the guide spoke so fast it was difficult to understand in some places.

“shhh...no talking”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We did the double-decker tour of Ottawa since the Lady Dive amphibus was out for repairs. The tour is informative for residents and visitors alike. It hits all the big highlights , offers great views and I liked that you could hop on/off. However, our guide Elianne (sp?) was beyond rude. For obvious reasons, they would rather you not talk when the guide is talking however she even chastised us (loudly over the microphone) when, between one of the rare pauses in her monologue, I tried to repeat what she said for the benefit of my elderly father who is hard of hearing. The incident totally threw off our otherwise favourable impression of the tour. She was also quite rude to another poor couple who unfortunately didn't have the English language skills to put her in her place. With a different guide this would be a good tour.

“Double Decker Bus”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This was a fantastic afternoon trip. 1 1/2 hrs. Hop on and off. We stayed on for the entire time to see what we wanted to go back to later. It covers all the interesting things you could probably not find on your own. The moderator was fantastic .she spoke perfect English and French. We learned a lot of interesting facts and saw many beautiful homes and embassy's. The price was reasonable and they give senior discounts too. A must do while you visit Ottawa.

“Good way to see the downtown”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We just did the hour-long tour today and it was interesting, but a tad pricey, at $35 per person. I did like the views from the river, and the guide was informative, but I wished it was longer and more in depth. I will give the guide credit for giving the tour completely in both English & French, though. I've done similar tours in Halifax and Charlottetown and I would say it ranks on par with those as well. Would be great for kids.
