This was my first amphibious bus tour . Lots of great facts along the way and loved driving into the river . My boyfriend and I had a blast ! Our guide Sabrina was energetic and kept us interested !
The tour begins at the intersection of Sparks and Elgin Street, just steps away from Parliament Hill. Climb aboard a convertible land-to-water amphibus and settle in for a 1-hour tour of Ottawa and Gatineau.
Listen to entertaining live commentary as you pass famous landmarks including Canadian Parliament, the National Gallery, and the Prime Minister’s residence. The on-board guide ensures you see unmarked and lesser-known points of interest that visitors often miss.
Once you’ve explored the city streets, the amphibus descends into the Ottawa River. From the water, enjoy rare panoramic views of the cityscape. Pass the capital’s three iconic bridges as the guide provides historical background you won’t find in the guidebooks.
After the bus makes its way out of the water, take a scenic ride over the Rideau Canal and end the tour back at Parliament Hill.
