    We actually live here in Ottawa and we looking for something to do. A bus that goes in the water sounded like fun and it was so much fun and educational. I didn't realize that so many embassy's were here in Ottawa, and actually leaned so much more about this city. It's a great tour for tourists and people who live here with an hour to spare. You won't regret it.

    It was awesome! The captain and the guide were amazing! I’m from Ottawa and I’m a history teacher. The only reason I’m not rating this a 5 stars is simply because it would’ve been nice to take an extra ~10 minutes to visit 24 Sussex Dr. (where the Prime Minister usually resides) and the Governor General’s compound. It’s litterally 5-7 minutes away from where the boat turns to take the bridge to Québec. Tour says 1 hour (it was actually 50 minutes) so that extra ~10 minutes would make it 1 hour and would be worthwhile. The tour would then also drive infront of the beautiful Embassy of France. Cheers!

    It was a pleasant experience. The guide managed to captivate us with explanations of the region we visited. The route we took allowed us to admire the beauty of the landscape and the architecture of the national capital. Ottawa is the city of a thousand possibilities, of which we, by bus-boat, were able to admire a small part. Thanks!!
