Description:

Imagine being able to see all the major ‘must see’ attractions of Ottawa in a single day. On this 4-hour, guided land and river tour of Canada’s capital city, you will see such beautiful sites as; Parliament Hill (before Sept. 17th), Royal Canadian Mint (as of September 17th) the House of Commons, Rideau Hall and Rockliffe park just to name a few!

Ottawa has so much to see and do that it is hard to pack it all in one day, but somehow, we managed it. The Ultimate Ottawa Tour is a 4-hour tour that allows you to experience some of the city’s most popular attractions. Depending on the season you will visit either the West Block Parliament building or Royal Canadian Mint and the Byward Market. After exploring these landmarks, you will take part on a 1-hour river cruise that gives you the opportunity to catch a glimpse of over 55 "must-see" sites throughout the capital city. From mid-October to mid-May* the Ottawa River Cruise portion of the tour is replaced with a tour of the Museum of Civilization (*exact dates may vary annually depending on weather)

The day begins with your personal tour guide picking you up from your downtown Ottawa hotel. From here, you will be taken on a guided tour across the famous Alexandra Bridge to Quebec. From here, the best pictures of the Parliament Buildings can be taken from across the river. After a fun photo opportunity, you will then be taken behind the Supreme Court of Canada for another unique shot of Ottawa’s beautiful shorelines. Now that you are acquainted with the city, it’s time for your guide to take you to Parliament Hill (before September 17th) or Royal Canadian Mint (as of September 17th). He or she will be able to answer questions, provide you with fun facts, and point out important landmarks and sites along the way.

Your day of fun and adventure continues as you will be taken on a guided tour down Sussex drive, passing many historic and beautiful landmarks along the way, including 24 Sussex Dr, Rideau Hall, and several impressive Embassies, to name a few. The drive then continues into Ottawa’s prestigious Rockliffe Park, where beautiful parks and mansions overlook the Ottawa and Gatineau rivers. On your way back downtown, your guide will stop at a scenic lookout overlooking these two beautiful rivers and delve into Ottawa’s history along the river.

From mid-May to mid-October* (exact dates may vary annually due to weather), the day ends with a relaxing 1.5-hour river cruise that will have you leisurely floating down the Ottawa River. During your enjoyable river cruise, you will be able to view over 55 different sites along the river which include everything from Chateau Laurier Hotel and Rideau Falls to the Parliament Buildings, Supreme Court of Canada, and the Prime Minister’s House. A visit to the Museum of Civilization will replace the river cruise from mid-October to mid-May.
