The Capital City Tour

This tour is the perfect mix of the city’s main landmarks, its surprisingly seedy history, and some of the hottest spots locals love. Starting at the National War Memorial, we’ll take you down the pedestrian mall of Sparks Street, past Parliament Hill and the Chateau Laurier, and finish up in the Byward Market. With violent Prime Ministers, political assassinations, lumberjack gang violence and vindictive governor generals, Ottawa has one of the most fascinating histories around!
