Highlights

  • Amphibus tour: See the cityscape and National Gallery from the Ottawa River
  • Visit monuments and landmarks often missed by visitors
  • Choose from several departure times throughout the day
What to expect
  • The tour begins just steps away from Parliament Hill. Climb aboard a convertible land-to-water amphibious and settle in for a tour of Ottawa and Gatineau. Listen to entertaining live commentary as you pass famous landmarks including the Canadian Parliament, the National Gallery, and the Prime Minister’s residence. The on-board guide ensures you see unmarked and lesser-known points of interest that visitors often miss. Once you’ve explored the city streets, the amphibious descends into the Ottawa River. From the water, enjoy rare panoramic views of the cityscape. Pass the capital’s three iconic bridges as the guide provides the historical background you won’t find in the guidebooks. After the bus makes its way out of the water, take a scenic ride over the Rideau Canal and end the tour back at Parliament Hill.

Great tour
Oct 2021 • Family
Great tour! Excellent tour guide! Very clean bus. However, we arrived 20 minutes early and the man in the booth confirming all of our tickets on our phones not have his mask. He was within 2 feet of every customer.

The overwhelming information that Christina gave us was magnificent! The fantastic driving of Ken on the amphibus was very impressive! I’m a bus driver for Niagara Falls and Toronto tours so I can truly appreciate Ken’s experience with his bus driving!!! Thank you very very much for the exceptional experience Christina and Ken!!!

Good to get an overview
May 2019
We were visiting the city for the first time. And this bus tour through the city gives you a very good idea of the history of the city. But most importantly it helps you so much to get an overview of the city. This way you can decide easily what you want to visit on your own. Can only recommend for everyone being the first time here staying longer than a day.

Waaaaaaaaaaaay too loud!
Non stop ear splitting chatter, in two languages. Utterly distracts from the sites. Should have taken an uncurated bus pass instead.

Marcel and Peter
A thoroughly informative 90 minute tour of the city, we would not see if left to our own devices. Marcel was engaging and good at his job. One to undertake.

Covers Main Sites
Sep 2019
The tour was for a full hour and covered most of the main sites in Ottawa and having the water tour was the extra bonus. It is always worth seeing a city from the water and Ottawa was worth it as well.

Fun tour with all highlights of Ottawa
Fun tour with all the important highlights of Ottawa! Catie was a great guide who absolutely knew her facts, helped out all the passengers with some nice photos and who was easy to listen to.
The only improvement point would be to ideally drive a bit slower as the info felt rushed at times when traffic was running smoothly. Therefore our tour also took less than 1 hour instead of the expected 1hour -1.5 hours.
