What you'll do

UPDATE COVID : Starting from 2 people, I automatically make the tour private, I only open to more for families and friends travelling together.

We will spend 2h30 together walking through the heart of Ottawa (depending on our pace). We'll explore the city's origin through history and anectodes. The size of the group allows me to show you more than regular large group tours which cover a lot less ground.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions. I can create a tour on demand if I'm available, or for example if you'd like it at a different time of the day, I can move a tour scheduled at noon, to 12:30 for exemple if it's more convenient for you and as long as none booked a spot yet. No date in the calendar doesn't always mean i'm not available.

Also if I'm available I can usually start a tour within 1:30 to 2 hours.

Pricing:
If you want a private tour for 1 person only, it's available for $75 CAD. 2 adults is 45 each, kids from 2 to 12 yo is $5.
As I said, I am happy to accommodate groups larger than 4 people, just let me know before booking to arrange.
I'm happy to apply discounts starting from 3 people ($125 for 3 adults, $160 for 4) just message me BEFORE booking so I can set it for you to book.

Please be aware of the weather. I can provides umbrellas, hats and gloves (winter) if you message me in advance.
Don't hesitate to message me for information.

Hello and welcome to Ottawa,

I live in Ottawa and love exploring the city and discovering its history. Now I would like to share with you what this special city has to offer!

I give tours for small groups from 1 to 4 people, but I'm more than happy to open it up to more people for families/friends travelling together. For me this is the best way for you to enjoy, with my all focus on you instead of a larger group with many diverse needs and interests.

I give a personal experience made and given by me for you to dicover the heart of the city and its origins.

I'm also happy to take your photos and help you catch the best angles for your instagram feed.

It was a great experience with Taf. We really enjoyed a lot. Taf is extremely friendly and we felt we are waling with a friend. Thanks Taf 😊

Taj was flexible in that we did the tour a day earlier in the evening rather than the day after during the day. His energy was very positive throughout the tour, sharing knowledge of the city and showed relevant photos dated back to visualize the history of Ottawa. He is very approachable and a great tour guy. I would highly recommend the tour!

Wow! This was a fabulous start to our stay in Ottawa. Saw hidden gems. Learned Canadian history that I never knew as a Canadian growing up in Canada. Excellent insight. Very entertaining.

Taf is an absolute charm of a guy. Very thoughtful, knowledgeable, friendly and outgoing. The perfect combo to be your next guide in Ottawa. We walked for around 3hrs to all the iconic locations and to the non-iconic hidden gems of the city. We asked him a million questions, joked around and shared life stories in between. He came very well prepared, on time, and was super easy to find.
