Chris was our guide. There were 12 in our group for the Tulip Discovery bike tour. An excellent experience. Well worth it. The tour would have been better in another week when all the tulips were blooming.

Thank you for your nice review! Yes, Tulips were in full bloom the following week. Still it was great that you could see them when the area was much less crowded! Maria :)

Although I grew up in Canada I had never been to Ottawa. Also, after living in Florida for 50 years, I'd been home for fall but hadn't seen spring. As part of our spring trip we went to Ottawa and saw some of the gardens of the Tulip Festival. It was gorgeous! Also, a neat city.

What a wonderful way to see Ottawa and enjoy the tulips at the yearly Tulip Festival. Book your tour with Escape - it'll be a highlight of your visit. Ottawa is incredibly bike friendly so you can go on this tour and not worry one bit about sharing the road with cars as the majority (almost all) of the tour follows bike paths and trails. Our guide was wonderful, full of information and knew the best spots to show us, all while providing history and stories. She was mindful of everyone's bicycling abilities and levels and made sure everyone was happy, comfortable and enjoying the tour. Escape was a pleasure to deal with from the very beginning from booking our tour to our arrival at their shop to get geared up and ready to go. They're centrally located so they're easy to find and get to and it's a great starting point for this wonderful tour. I highly recommend it!

I had a 3hr bike ride with my family guided tour. It was very fun filled bike ride with personalized care given to us. They take care of the safety as well. Friendly guides, goes beyond guiding as well.

My friend and I took the Ottawa Tulip guided tour and it was absolutely amazing! Reservations were easy to make and quality of the bikes were excellent. Our guide, Hans, made the experience outstanding. We loved his knowledge of the city, sense of humour and personality. The fact that he was Dutch and we were on the Tulip tour made it a little bit more special. The tulips were only partially in bloom, but the time we spent in the Festival Park was sufficient. The scenic route by the Canal and then up thru the War Museum was perfect! The distance and pace was good for basic to intermediate level bikers.

We absolutely recommend that if you’re in Ottawa the best way to see the city is by bike! Make sure you ask for Hans

What a great way to see Ottawa! My fourteen-year-old daughter and I did the spring tulip festival tour with Escape Bicycle Tours and we both loved it, even though the weather was cool and rainy. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, the city is very bike friendly and we always felt safe. It was a great way to spend time with a teenager. I highly recommend it.

What a lot of fun, I must say Ottawa is growing on me and these types of outings really have an impact. Chris was a lot of fun as a guide - I see he got me in a photo as the ‘class clown’. Hope I made his day that much more interesting with the questions and shenanigans 😊. I had to wait for the perfect time to spring in my ‘tiptoeing through the tulips’ gag!
