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
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Ottawa with Conrad! His knowledge, story telling and humour were a perfect fit. We have travelled to Ottawa over the past 5 years while our son was in university. The tour was the perfect way to close this chapter for our family. Conrad demonstrated consideration and respect for our disabled daughter. His suggestions and flexibility were very much appreciated. Thank you for helping us make great memories! We will definitely recommend this to friends and family.
