Surprises aplenty await you on the Scenic Night Tour of Ottawa. Designed to show you that the nightlife in Canada’s capital city is more than just dancing, partying, and visiting nightclubs, this is a 4-hour guided sightseeing tour with memories that will last a lifetime.

Your tour begins with being picked up directly from your hotel in downtown Ottawa. Your guide will bring you on a narrated driving tour through the city passing through Rockcliffe Park and Rideau Hall. Rockcliffe Park is well known for its stunning historic residences and is currently home to many notable politicians, ambassadors, business leaders and former Prime Ministers.
