Private tour guide Matthew

Matthew R.

Ottawa, ON, Canada

Hello all, Prior to working with ToursByLocals I was a tour guide in Toronto for several years aboard a double-decker hop-on-hop-off sightseeing bus.

I delivered thousands of tours during my time in Ontario's capital by day and by night I was performing in one of the cities many comedy clubs. That was all before moving to Ottawa to pursue and earn my History degree at Carleton University were I not only got to learn all about the places, people, and events that helped shape our country but could actually touch and feel parts of that history from living in this amazing city where Canadian history unfolds everyday. Currently I am finishing my Bachelor of Education (specializing in Adult and Lifelong Education) through distance education at Brock University where I have learned how to better turn my city into one massive classroom. What all this amounts to is that when on a tour with me you'll be getting a historian, teacher, and performer all rolled into one and will become privy to my extensive interests and knowledge and make history and culture come alive for you the same way it does for me. Come and walk with me a while!

Credentials

-Bachelor of Arts in History, awarded by Carleton University in 2013
-Diploma in Comedy Writing and Performance, awarded by Humber College in 2007
