5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

It was a fun tour with beautiful views. Lasted about 75 minutes with a quick stopover at dock in Gatineau.
Leave plenty of time. You'll need to park at the National Gallery, and it's a long walk down to the Rideau canal locks

4 star rating: Recommended June 2017

Lovely way to see the city, very relaxing especially if the weather is pleasant. Was not easy to find the departure point, lots of kiosks before we found the right one.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2017

The guides read word for word the sights we were viewing from the boat. I appreciate English is not their first language, but their reading skills were atrocious! Very unprofessional. Sights were beautiful, but we were left with so many questions about what we saw. No off script commentary at all.
