Ottawa City Hop-on Hop-off Tour
See all the sights of Ottawa on a hop-on, hop-off bus tour of Canada's capital city. You'll learn about the history of the region from your bilingual tour guide and have fabulous views from aboard an open-top double-decker bus, historic turn-of-the-century trolley or air-conditioned, washroom-equipped motor coach.
Your ticket is valid for one-day or three consecutive days, which allows you to tour Ottawa at your own pace, or stay on the bus for a 1.5-hour fully narrated tour. The hop-on, hop-off tour runs in a continuous circle daily, from 10:00am until 3:00pm, officially starting on the corner of Sparks and Elgin Streets.
Ride along the London-style double decker bus as you learn and view Ottawa's most famous landmarks. Some of the attractions you'll get to visit on this hop-on hop off tour include Parliament Hill, Canadian Museum of History, Notre Dame Basilica, Rideau Hall and the Canadian War Museum.
This tour is seasonal, operating from April through to October.

This is a great way to see the city. The guide was knowledgeable and we might not have seen some of the spots. We got the 3 day pass, we didn't get off yesterday but today we're going to go back and get off the bus at some spots. Don't forget the sunscreen though if you're riding on top.
