    The ride was fun and long enough to explore both cities. However, the tour guide woman spoke super loudly and fast and in both English and French it made my ears so irritated. The tour is better done in English or French because it’s so annoying listening to both languages. This tour guide is not trained at all and should speak slowly and get that mic out of her mouth!

    The tour guide was very funny and made the information seem more interesting. Drinks were available to purchase on the boat. You’ll want to get a seat facing the front of the boat

    Once we got on boat it was very enjoyable!
    Our ticket was for 3:30 pm on the Ottawa side and we arrived 20 mins prior as per instructions.
    There was no one there to greet us, for a second we thought we were in the wrong place, finally around 3:40-3:45 a trip-advisor rep appeared. Also while we waited fir boat, it began to rain and there was no place to take shelter.
    The boat cruise was relaxing!

    What a phenomenal tour with Andrew. From the moment he picked us up at our Air B & B until he dropped us at the end of our tour, he was incredibly attentive and he answered our many qudstions. He demonstrated a maturity far beyond his years. He had a wonderful sense of humor and he made his 4 guests feel at ease. His portion of the tour was incredibly informative and he had a maturity far beyond his years.

    Unfortunately, the boat cruise part of the tour left much to be desired. There was no tour guide. We were supposed to listen to something that was pre-recorded but even that did not seem to be working the way that it was intended. The boat cruise was a huge disappointment to an otherwise wonderful day.

    I was afraid it would be lame for my 16 and 12 year old but they really appreciated it. Oliver, our guide, knows how to tell a good story. I was listening to every word. I was kind of hoping something scary would happen but nothing scary happened. Hahaha But seriously, it was entertaining for adults and teens. I wouldn't recommend under 10 years old as it is stated on their website. It's not THAT spooky, there's just a lot of talking and they might not have the interest as it is basically a history lesson. But a very interesting one nonetheless.

    What a great night! We went as a group to celebrate a birthday and everyone had a blast! The entertainment was fabulous - such talented singers and musicians. And the meal was fantastic. Love that the singers are the servers! We definitely had a lot of laughs. We will be back!

    It was nice to visit downtown at dusk. Our presenter was very knowledgeable. It was a nice way to get a first view of Ottawa.

    Hans did a great job taking us on the bike tour. Thanks and we highly recommend this bike tour.

    Even as being from Ottawa we enjoyed this tour because the places you visit with the bikes you can't see from the car before.

    I needed more than two hours to see everything. There are interesting things to see everywhere. So educational as well! As a non Canadian learning about certain conflicts from a different perspective is fascinating.

    David was an excellent guide! Very considerate and helpful and kind and welcoming. We got to see incredible views and hear tidbits of interesting history. This 3.5 hour tour even included a stop for espresso and dessert in Little Italy! It's a safe ride through scenic parks along the Rideau canal and over the bridge to Quebec, through nice neighborhoods and paved trails. The tour provides a bottle of water and a granola bar, but bring extra water too! There are a couple stops with bathrooms too, if you were to need them. I HIGHLY recommend springing for an e-bike (it's an add-on after booking) if you're not a powerful rider and can't effortlessly cycle uphill - there were only a few inclines, and everyone else on the tour managed well on regular bikes, but I'm a novice with a weird knee and I would've fallen behind for sure! My pedal assist e-bike made for an easy, fun ride, with all the joy of cycling in the great outdoors.

    Their storefront/meet up spot on Spark Street has bathrooms and an expansive cafe with food and drink, and a beautiful outdoor patio to rest/collapse at afterwards. They've thought of everything.

    Easily the best experience in town. Thanks!

    My husband and I went on a private day trip to Ottawa with driver Chris. We are walkers so our trip was customized to different areas in Ottawa.If you are looking to explore and learn a little history, this tour is for you.

    Fantastic! We have a 6yr old new rider and our guide Art and the Rent A Bike team made everything easy!! Her cycling skills went from weak to strong because of Art's understanding approach throughout the tour. The entire team was supportive of an out of town family with a nervous new rider. Bikes were in great shape and fit our wide range of sizes. Start location was a bit hard but fun to find, so give yourself some time to get there. Well worth the money and time, a memory that will last us forever.
