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.

Conrad was such an amazing guide - so knowledgeable and personable. He led my group of 15 around the city and never missed a beat. There is no better guide than him!
