Full description
Surprises aplenty lie ahead when you choose to spend an evening on the Epic Ottawa Night Tour. Uniquely designed to show you that the nightlife in Canada’s capital city is more than just drinking, dancing and visiting nightclubs, this 3-hour guided tour will have you walking away at the end of the evening with memories – and photos – that will last a lifetime. Navigating the streets of Ottawa by night can be stressful, which is why your tour will begin with a pick-up from a complimentary shuttle. Choose any downtown hotel or prearranged destination and your tour guide will pick you up and take you on your way to the first stop on the tour. While driving you to your first stop – a sunset river cruise – your tour guide will provide you with amazing facts about the city. Feel free to ask your tour guide anything about the city.

You will reach the Ottawa riverside in just enough time to set sail on a lovely Paula D cruise boat. As you casually drift down the river, you will be treated to a beautiful sunset and some unique views of the city’s most popular landmarks and attractions. Just sit back and take in the beautiful sights or grab your camera and capture the moment. When your river cruise is over, your personal tour guide will drive you around and allow you to explore some of the fun and exciting areas throughout the city. Your tour guide will provide you with fun and interesting historical facts for each of the locations you pass. Make sure you have your camera ready because there will be numerous opportunities to take photos of the brightly lit landmarks and attractions.

After your driving tour, it will be time to experience the nightlife for yourself. There will be a brief stop at the historic ByWard Market, which are lined with vendors and shops that offer delicious snacks and drinks for you to sample. Ask your tour guide for recommendations or be adventurous and pick at random! The tour will end on a memorable note with the Northern Lights show - watch as a stunning projected light and sound show lights up the Parliament Building. This is a can’t miss show and a wonderful way to end the evening.
