Personalized Private Tour of Ottawa by car minivan


There is a lot to see and do in the National Capital Region. If you have never been to Ottawa, you may be a bit overwhelmed by the choices, but I can do the picking and choosing for you to ensure you get the most comprehensive tour in the time you have available. I can show you the city by car (mine or yours). If you wish to see museums, we have more per capita than any other city in Canada. Are you a foodie? Let me introduce you to our famous BeaverTails, or guide you to a wonderful selection of restaurants. The tour is yours, and I am here to ensure it is exactly what it is you want of it.

Itinerary

We start at your hotel, usually in the downtown core. We will visit Parliament Hill and its environs, then go to Rockliffe via the Ceremonial Route. We will see official government residences, Rideau Hall, the enclave of Rockliffe Park, the parkways, then to the Experimental Farm with its Arboretum and ornamental gardens. We will make a side trip to the Hull sector of Gatineau, our neighboring city on the north side of the Ottawa River, and back to your hotel. Drop off can be arranged to wherever you wish.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Meet at your hotel.

End location: End at your hotel, or within easy walking distance. The tour could also end at the airport or the train station, saving you the cost of a cab as you leave the city.

Duration: 3 hours

Tours are normally scheduled for mid morning to mid afternoon to avoid rush hour traffic.
Start time of 9 a.m. is just a suggestion. We can start at whatever time fits your schedule.

Transportation

I have a 2012 Ford Escape, 5 Pax. Air conditioned, clean. If you have more than 4 passengers, a mini van can be rented. Let me and Tours By Locals know and we can adjust the fee. If we use your vehicle (and your gas) I will give you a cash refund of $15 at the time of the tour.

What’s Included

My service as tour guide, all my local knowledge, which will give you the most comprehensive tour that our time allows. I will also give you ideas on how to take the best advantage of the rest of your time in the Nation's Capital. I will cover the cost of gas and parking.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

10 CAD - I recommend you try some of our specialty foods, like beaver tails or poutine.

What’s Extra

Rental of a mini van if your group is more than 4. Add $150 to the cost.
