Fabulous combination of Hop On Hop Off Bus and River Cruise (no hop off recommended unless you swim well)
Lots of landmarks to see at all levels and from different perspectives
Really enjoyed both elements...highly recommended
Add on a free trip around Parliament building too!
Very good way to get around all the main sightseeing places. Lovely well put together itenerary.
The only hiccup is that we were not picked up at Les Suites Hotel after calling and confirming that we would be by Grey Lines. I called them when we arrived home to put in a complaint, we were in their computer system, but the left hand did not let the right hand know what was going on. We eventually had to take a taxi, because we did not know where the kiosk was. Good bilingual guides, funny, especially the one on the Hop-on Hop-off.
Most enjoyable tour of Ottawa, with a good mixture of stops for photos and drive-bys. Outstanding driver!
very good included boat trip as well'but strange ticket only valid for one day other citys tours valid for up to three days?
We really enjoyed the hop on hop off bus tour - so much that we did the whole tour twice! The guides were informative and entertaining. The boat cruise on the Ottawa River was very relaxing - the guide here was a bit hard to understand as she talked very quickly. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
Enjoyed both the bus trip and the Ottawa river trip very much. Well worth the money and a great way to see the beautiful city of Ottawa. Added bonus of getting picked up from our hotel in the morning. Thank you.
Excellent. We only had one day to do the hop on/hop off tour, which isn't enough. You need at least 2 days.
The tour enables you to get to around 10 attractions in the city centre and outskirts.
Our guide was Gilles - he was enthusiastic and informative. thank you Gilles.
GREAT FOR ANY ONE AND EVERYONE TO DO AT LEAST ONCE... I had lived in Ottawa for 7 years but my fiance didn't know the city... We decided to take the tour to move around the city, but it surprised us on how informative and good the guide was, as well as the opportunity we had to go to different places around the city that normally we would've not gone... =)
Great way to spend a few hours. The Ottawa River tour is the one to take as you see a lot of the canal from the bus tour anyway.
A lot of stairs up and down to the water but the Captain called a taxi to pick us up at the dock in Hull as I have emphysema. Four star service I'd say. Take the longer river tour as the boat is nicer than the other company's.
I only had one day for this as I came from Montreal and had to return there in the evening. You need at least 2 full days. Still I enjoed both especially the cruise. Lot of walking. Have good shoes and good weather. I had.
Excellent trip - saw everything you would want to see. Great to be able to get off and then back on. When purchasing on internet I didn't realise it was valid for my stay - not just one day. Perfect
Tour bus showed up right on time. People were very approachable and helpful with answering questions. Tour guides did an excellent job of introducing the city of Ottawa. Overall, a superb way of getting around in a strange city and making the most of your time!!!!!
Your tour folks were terrific. . I highly recommend your service. Thanks for helping make our Ottawa stay delightfull!! Great people who know your city!!

It was our first time visiting Ottawa, and the tour bus guide was very knowledgeable about the various attractions. The river tour was also very good. My friends and I considered this tour very good value for money!
I loved it. In hindsight, it should be done over a 2 or 3 day tour as everything is so spread and you need the time at each stop to fully appreciate this beautiful city.
Staff informative and helpful
Canal cruise was down and back something needed on way back or change route if posasible.
The Ottawa bus tour and cruise was very generic but informative. The guide did speak very good English and French. He was very easy to understand. The bus and cruise took us to a lot of places. I was disappointed in the boat though as I thought it would be open air. Instead it was basically a closed in bus in the water. On the whole though, this was a good tour, impersonal but good.
Everything was OK. Nice trip, beautiful weather and lovely people. Thanks.
A very enjoyable experience. Buses were on time and we'll kept. Guides were knowledgeable and amusing. Good value for money.
This tour is a brilliant way to see a multitude of Ottawa's places of interest in a 2-hour time span. Furthermore, you can hop on and hop off at about 20 sites. The guide was a young dude, but he was nevertheless fluent in French and English and more importantly informative and knowledgeable in a entertaining way. I personally recommend people to hop off at the Canadian war museum, a must see if you are interested in historical warfare.
