Top-rated things to do in Downtown, Ottawa

Unique activities hosted by local experts vetted for quality

  • Cycle Canada's Capital
    This will be up to a two-hour biking experience around Ottawa and Gatineau! You are one of the select 5% of visitors to the Nation's Capital who will enjoy the sights and sounds from two wheels. Much of this exclusive itinerary is not accessible by motor coach or car. We access the recreational pathways directly from our bike path site starting on the World Heritage Rideau Canal, proceeding south to Dow's Lake, Hartwell Lockstation, Rideau Falls, the Arboretum, Central Experimental Farm and Ottawa River. Our favourite stops are the two waterfalls within the urban core; Hog's Back and Rideau. From the Rideau Falls it is a short pedal into the residence of the Governor General and then the village of Rockcliffe Park with numerous mansions, embassy residences, mature gardens and trees. The history behind some of these sights and homes is unique. Views over the river along the Rockliffe parkway are exquisite. Other things to note Our bikes are light and efficient. Slower participants can use electric assist models if necessary at 20$ additional fee. If e-bikes are required, please inform us in advance. The pace is easy.

  • Walking tour in the heart of Ottawa
    UPDATE COVID : Starting from 2 people, I automatically make the tour private, I only open to more for families and friends travelling together. We will spend 2h30 together walking through the heart of Ottawa (depending on our pace). We'll explore the city's origin through history and anectodes. The size of the group allows me to show you more than regular large group tours which cover a lot less ground. Feel free to message me if you have any questions. I can create a tour on demand if I'm available, or for example if you'd like it at a different time of the day, I can move a tour scheduled at noon, to 12:30 for exemple if it's more convenient for you and as long as none booked a spot yet. No date in the calendar doesn't always mean i'm not available. Also if I'm available I can usually start a tour within 1:30 to 2 hours. Pricing: If you want a private tour for 1 person only, it's available for $75 CAD. 2 adults is 45 each, kids from 2 to 12 yo is $5. As I said, I am happy to accommodate groups larger than 4 people, just let me know before booking to arrange. I'm happy to apply discounts starting from 3 people ($125 for 3 adults, $160 for 4) just message me BEFORE booking so I can set it for you to book. Please be aware of the weather. I can provides umbrellas, hats and gloves (winter) if you message me in advance. Don't hesitate to message me for information.

  • Sightseeing Bike Tour of Ottawa
    Covid-19 update: We clean and disinfect our bikes and helmets after each use, run small groups and maintain a 2-meter distance throughout the tour. Join us for this leisurely relaxed 2-hour bike tour of Ottawa which is about 14 kilometers (7-8.5 Miles) and shows you many of Ottawa’s major attractions. We will cycle on scenic and safe bicycle paths to capture some of the great views of the city and talk about its unique history and present time. We will first cycle through the historic and scenic Rideau Canal to see the locks and how they operate. We will next stop at the National Art Gallery and the famous spider sculpture. Taking some quiet back roads you will feel and experience Ottawa's architecture and life in New Edinburgh and Byward market neighbourhoods! Next is a stop at Rideau Hall and Prime minister’s residence (well he does not live there anymore!) We will tell you why! A stop at beautiful Rideau Falls will be a refreshing experience plus you will learn about the history of trades in our region. Cycling back you will see more of Ottawa’s landmarks including some great views of the parliaments and political scene of the city. You will be amazed by how much you will see and learn in just 2 hours. This sightseeing/biking experience is ideal for easy-going bicyclists or those traveling solo or with friends and family members and want to see and learn about Ottawa! Other things to note Dress comfortably and according to the weather forecast. Tours start on time; please arrive at our location 15-20 minutes prior to the tour start time. Late arrival results in missing the tour. We can provide electric bike for an additional cost of $25 per bike.

  • Professional Photoshoot Byward Market
    Solo travellers, couples and families! Explore downtown Ottawa with a local professional photographer. No more selfies or asking strangers to take your photo (I've had my head cropped out of too many photos this way haha). To start our experience, we will meet on Parliament Hill in front of the centennial flame for our first set of photos. Then we will stroll over the bridge on the canal for photos that overlook Parliament with amazing views of the peace Tower and the river. Making our way towards the Byward Market, we will stop for shots in Major Hills Park. We will then tour around the Byward Market - one of Canada's oldest public markets since 1826 where you can meet local vendors. Finally we will indulge in a local delicacy: the Beavertail!! No visit to Ottawa is complete without this sweet treat :) Available most days; Times are flexible. Just reach out to let me know what works best for your schedule! Other things to note Remember to dress for the weather! Canadian winters are cold and we will be walking and touring around outside for an hour so remember your scarves, hats and gloves :)
