    Was a great activity for the kids - they loved the idea of going from the road to the water and driving around all the cool sites in Ottawa. The only slightly frustrating part was when the guide asked that everyone wore their masks properly and the driver of the bus (who heard this announcement) kept his under his chin. For an established tour I thought that guidelines would be followed stringently.

    The tour was very well-maintained, Andrew the bilingual speaker was very informative and very pleasant. I thought it would’ve been better if the captain Kevin had jumped in to relate some of his experiences all those might’ve been a safety issue I’m not sure anyhow fantastic tour in a beautiful city

    The amphibus for the hour that we had reserved was broken, the company called us the same morning to find out if we wanted to be reimbursed or if we agreed to change the time. We took the 2nd option and we did not regret! Good way to discover the city and its buildings.
