Ottawa Walking Tours
Coming into its 12th year as a local favorite tour company, Ottawa Walking Tours is a truly excellent choice for your student group while in Canada's shining capital!
Boasting the self-proclaimed title of 'the best way to see Canada in 2 hours', this tour company provides groups with entertaining information on the city's history, art, architecture, and even politics. We especially love this tour for student groups because the experienced tour operators will help American student groups learn about Ottawa and Canada in relation to what your students already about the USA. For instance, this capital is compared to DC in several aspects, and the Canadian House of Commons is also compared in detail to the very similar House of Representatives in the U.S. However, tour leaders also present some of the differences our two neighboring countries have as well.
There are several different tour options, from a customizable group tour specifically for your student group to the permanent themed tours such as the History Highlights Tour, Art in Public Spaces Tour, and Path of Heroes Tour, for elementary groups.
Your student tour will be around 2 hours and take you to such iconic spots as the Cenotaph, Prime Minister's Office, Supreme Court, Parliament, and so much more. What better way to get to know the educational side of the city while outside of the classroom?
It should also be known that this company has close connections to local schools and performance venues if your group happens to be a performance-based one.
