2 hour bike tour
Oct 2021
We had a great time riding on the bike trails of Ottawa and stopping at spots to learn the history and admire the scenery. Our guide Sparky was very knowledgeable and fun on the bike ride. It was the best tour that we took in Ottawa

We were booked for the two hour bike tour in early October but the weather unfortunately was quite rainy and cold. On the morning of our tour, Andrew called us to see if we still wanted to take the tour and when we decided to opt out due to weather we received a full refund. Given that this is a small company where every dollar counts we thought it was very decent to provide a full refund on such short notice. It was very much appreciated and we will definitely book with Escape the next time we're in Ottawa. On all accounts it seems like a nice place to do business.

Perfect way to explore Ottawa
Best tour of many we have made before. Very comfortable and maintained bikes. Tourguide was very friendly with a huge knowledge of Ottawa, he adjusted the tour for the special interests of the group. He also took photos from us. Start at end is at a bike rental store with a cafe to enjoy dinks and snacks before/afterwards. We recommend that operator very much and would do the tour again without any doubt!👍

Although it's true that Ottawa is a very walkable city, doing a bike tour will allow you to reach many other places that aren't part of the usual tourist track. The route is easy to bike through and the tour guide will stop frequently to give commentary of the various areas/monuments in Ottawa. Ighly recommend.
