    Even though they sent me a confirmation with the pick up instructions the night before, no one showed to pick us up. We called the main office and they were trying to help us, but the Ottawa manager never answered the phone to explain why no one picked us as scheduled.

    Cheap mini van to tour the city. Could not hear the guy in our middle seats. And part of our boat tour…they were booked when we got there and they could not put us on it! Poor!

    Ottawa by Land and Canal

    Enjoyed this trip throughout. Land and canal both was nice. But land part was more interesting and interactive. Able to see the city from different angles. Chase was an excellent tour guide, very jovial and good at explaining history. Canal ride was relaxing. Thanks everyone for the memorable trip and would love to visit Ottawa again.

    Our personal tour guide, Doug, was an amazing tour guide. His knowledge of Ottawa and Canada were top notch. We and our kids enjoyed the tour and the information, which isn’t an easy thing to accomplish. Would definitely go on another tour with him.

    I was in a small group with a very informative guide. He was both knowledgeable about the area but also well traveled and capable of conversing on May subjects. The overall experience was excellent and the tour offerings gave me a feel for the city.

    Very unsatisfactory
    Gertrude_W
    , Oct 2019
    We were 45 minutes late being picked up at our Motel. We were dropped off for the boat cruise but left stranded in front of the Chateau Laurier at Rideau St. & Elgin St. for nearly 2 hours after the boat cruise.. Jason our tour guide never did show up. My granddaughter is disabled & we stood there & were cold & finally gave up waiting & had to find our way back to our Motel. We spoke to Andrea from Sightseeing Tours & she told us we are getting a full refund. The couple with us Janis & Neale were from Calgary & were thoroughly disgusted with the hospitality.He was using a walker & was elderly & was also very upset. I am expecting my full refund from Visator which was paid up front on my Capital One credit card. This was the most disappointing experience I have ever had with a Tour.

    Dissapointed that we missed the boat tour - not sure why there was an issue for the location pick up when this seems to be a common tour. We did take an interesting drive (in rush hour) which and visited some spots i dont think i would have seen otherwise. the tour guide did indicate we would recieve reimbursment for the missed boat tour portion but have yet to recieve it.

    You don’t book anything with this company if they make mistake and you have to suffer they don’t care . And any attractions you book you pay 40% higher Then what actually cost to them so I recommend just call straight to attractions company

    Ottawa afternoon

    , Jul 2019
    nice afternoon - Jason did a terrific job and was very knowledgeable about the sights and places of interest. Everything was great - traffic was bad that afternoon so Jason changed up the agenda to make it more enjoyable and less time sitting in traffic. the boat ride was great too. Jason was great, and because of the traffic delays he extended our tour by an hour. He also helped us decide what to do with the rest of our time in Ottawa - great tour!
