Conrad L.

Ottawa, Ont, Canada

Hello, everyone. I am Conrad - one of Ottawa's most experienced tour guides, certainly Ottawa's most reviewed guide.

As a home-town boy who has lived here for over 60 years, I can say I know the city and environs.

My family has roots here going back over 120 years. Since graduating from the University of Ottawa (BA Hon, History, '78) I have been giving tours for groups, individuals, and for travel companies.

Now, as an independent guide with With ToursByLocals I can better serve you by creating custom tours to fit your needs. Whether you want a small group short walking tour of the downtown area, a car tour, or a full day on a bus, I can give you the most comprehensive, entertaining tour of your entire holiday.

Let me show you my home town as only a local could.

A Recent Review of this guide

It was a lovely tour.Conrad picked us up from our hotel with his new, convenient and clean car, proposed to each of us a bottle of water, gave us his full attention, and drove us all over Ottawa. We had the chance to see many central points, we even went into the entrance of the History Museum, we got some history about Canada and about Ottawa, all with a clear voice, easy English (We are tourists) and with a sense of Humor.He gave us full 3 hours, and as a summary, it was one of our best city tours ever!
