We went on their second last day of tours for the 2016 season. Our family was only available for a couple of hours to tour around Parliament Hill. We happened upon this bus tour and it fit our schedule... a bus leaving in less than 5 minutes. It was a cool day but bright and sunny so off to the... More

This was such a fun and different way to see Ottawa and get an overview of the historic aspects of the city. Only about 45 minutes on land, and then 15 or so in the river. Our tour guide, Xavier and driver Ken were great. Xavier was so friendly and knowledgeable. Seeing the parliament buildings from the vantage of the... More

It was the first time for us to enjoy something like this with an Amphibus. All in all it was OK. Too pricey in the end for the time (60min) the tour took. Only French/English tour guide. He did an excellent job explaining and pointing out things.

Good day We are happy that you enjoyed the tour and found it fun. The reason we offer bilingual guided city tours is because we are in a bilingual federal city and it is mandatory to offer services in both languages.

We did both the hop on and hop off double decker tour and the Lady dive tour of the river. Both tours were quite similar in terms of information.

This was one of the best tours we have taken. Hopping on and off round the city. Christina certainly knows her stuff giving us lots of detail on every building along the way and a little more. It was much better than having a set of ear phones.

May not be a long tour but it's a good one. Great snapshot of Ottawa with all the highlights including 24 Sussex and the Parliament building, with good informative commentary. Quite exciting when the bus turns into a boat and heads out into the river. Good for all ages.
