As a home-town boy who has lived here for over 60 years, I can say I am known for clear and correct knowledge of the history of Ottawa 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
Not only very knowledgeable about all the destination in the tour, we had a really great time learning all the history and the back story of ALL the attractions! Some other traveler also asked to join and to listen to the story he told us! He is also very flexible and even helped us prepare for the next trip! I'm highly recommend this tour and Conrad, especially if you only one day and you want to know about Ottawa as much as you can!
