We will take you on a walk through lands that hold thousands of years of history in a country only just recently celebrating its 150th anniversary. We will meet you in the historic and bustling district of Byward Market and show you some of its lesser known gems, while telling you stories of its seedier past. Then we'll take you to the best view of Ottawa, where you'll learn the importance of the land to the Algonquins, the area’s first inhabitants, and all about the lumber town that first sprung up. From there we will take an easy walk across the Alexandria bridge to visit Gatineau, and see the historic Vieux-Hull quarter along with a visit to a quaint cafe for some refreshment. A quick bus ride brings us back to Centretown Ottawa, where we'll get to walk down Sparks Street on our way to Parliament Hill. After a few stops around the Hill, we'll end the tour at the Rideau locks. Along the way, you'll discover Ottawa’s outdoor art gallery among the statues, sculptures and hidden murals that exist around every corner. We promise to give you a tour that takes you to the iconic sights, but gives you the insider scoop!
We are a group of friends, Emma, Meghan, Felix, and Laura, that were either born or have come to call Ottawa home. After all traipsing around the globe separately, and enjoying many local tours along the way, we realized we would love to do the same for our own city! We got together to form a local tour business called Ottawa Urban Adventures. We enjoy games nights, craft brews, and the growing foodie scene in Ottawa. When we’re not reveling in Ottawa’s lively night-life, we’re reading through many of the dusty books and obscure web pages on the history and culture of the area out of pure curiousity and enjoyment. And now we are happy to bring Ottawa to life by painting its stories for guests on our walking tours. There's so much more to learn and experience outside of the usual in the capital city of Canada!
