I don't ever write reviews, but because of the amazing experience (and I don't take this lightly) that I had with 'Ottawa Walking Tours,' I find it necessary to do so. Craig, the owner, was my tour guide and he was knowledgeable about the places that he took us to. He captivated me with the history behind each building and monuments that we stopped at. Craig was also able to accommodate me to join the tour at the last minute - thanks Craig! So, if you are looking for a tour guide/company in Ottawa, look no further - this is it! I HIGHLY recommend 'Ottawa Walking Tours.'
We had the best time on Craig’s historical highlights tour today. A school teacher by trade, Craig was knowledgable, informative and entertaining and made the group feel very relaxed. The two hours went by in a flash and he really brought the history of the city to life. I wholeheartedly recommend Ottawa Walking Tours as your ‘go to’ tour company.
