Conrad is a wealth of knowledge - especially historical information about Ottawa. He had his heart in it being very proud to show us his city. We learned a lot of new things about Ottawa. He took us on a lovely and informative tour. We highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I love doing short notice tours. The spontaneity is exciting. So glad you liked my tour. Thanks for your comments. And If I am ever in your neighborhood, I will certainly look you up.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :-) Thanks.

Great tour with Conrad! With limited time in Ottawa, Conrad covered as much ground as he could to give us a wonderful taste of his city. When he came to pick us up, we told him we had already seen a few of the "highlights" so, without effort, he modified the tour. A great story teller, Conrad wove the history of Ottawa and Canada with interesting anecdotes, and humor, leaving us with fond memories! An added bonus, he knew some of the best spots for a "kodak moment."
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words. The beautiful weather was a bonus. Maybe you could come back in the winter for some skating on the Rideau Canal and enjoy our Winterlude festival.
Great tour with Conrad. Saw many places in 3 hrs. Great history lesson on the area and people. Also, very impressed with the services of Tours by Locals. They are very affordable, efficient and easy to deal with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I love this job. I get to meet wonderful people from all over the world, get to brag about my city, and be a ham. Thanks for taking my tour and your kind words. My pleasure.

Walter and I had a fantastic tour of our Capital City with Conrad. Conrad is vivacious, energetic, very spontaneous, accommodating, knowledgeable, sensitive to our time table and mainly fun to be with. Conrad came to the airport to pick us up and brought us back in time for us to catch our flight. To us, it made our visit to Ottawa possible. Thank you Conrad, you are the best. Rating 5 out of 5. You are definitely a great tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. Come back anytime. We are an all season city, with plenty to see and do. Cheers.

I cannot thank Conrad enough. We had arranged a special tour as we had travelled by train from Montreal for the day. In the event my wife had been unwell but Conrad met us at the station and gave us both an interesting tour of both the regular and not so regular places of interest in and around Ottawa. With minimum walking for my wife is was a truly excellent day and Conrad dropped us off at the VIA station - after we had managed to negotiate the mega road works. Excellent day and guide - thanks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Mr P. It's all in a day's work. But when you love what you're doing, it's not work.
Conrad was a delight. His enthusiasm, local and historical knowledge, his stories and sense of humour combined to make our tour a terrific success. We saw more, learned more and experienced more than I imagined possible in such a short time. Not only did we learn about Ottawa, but we learned much about Ottawa's place in Canadian history. He was on time and importantly - a cautious driver. I would recommend Conrad to anyone wanting a high end, interesting tour of Ottawa!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words. Hope to see you in the Capital again. Cheers. Conrad
Conrad was very knowledgeable about the city of Ottawa. The tour did not feel rushed in any way and he was very accomodating by tailoring his tour to my travel schedule. His engaging personality definately made the day enjoyable and I would request/reccomend his services in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments. I really enjoyed our day. There is still so much to see in Ottawa, it is worth making a return trip.
