    It would've been more enjoyable having an English-only tour guide. Also more time was given to speaking French than speaking English. Also the man who anchored the boat should not have gruffly yelled at us to move from our seat.

    A bit shorter than expected. The ride is a bit dull due to the scenes, not the tour guide narrative. If you have no other plans. Do this

    The views were fantastic, the fact that you can get up and they provide time for photos was also a plus. Was great for the whole family. Great Canadian history here in Ottawa.

    Not worth the time and money - a very short ride that is very slow with little historical information given other than pointing at some buildings and the Rideau falls.

    Beautiful but more stories would add value
    Catherine_B
    , Aug 2022
    It was a beautiful cruise and my partner, who was new to the city, found it a great introduction to some landmarks. However, I marked it down to 3 stars because I really would have liked more background, history and stories about Ottawa and the landmarks. There was a half hour of the return trip with no narration at all which I thought was a real missed opportunity.

    Awful guide"s narration
    Anthony_M
    , Aug 2022
    Guide"s narration was awful. She just ran throug. Bilingual addition made it difficult to follow. May prerecorded explanation as they do it in the 1000 island tour in Kingston would be better The add says the the ride would take 90 min but the actual ride was just about an honour. It took the ride three times before in the past 15 years. This trip did not cover certain location eg the church associated with lady abadin

    We were very unhappy that boat was late and that the cruise didn't even last and hour and a half because of it arriving late to dock. This tour was so much better 7 years ago.

    Deaf Accessibility For Your Boat Cruise
    Kim_R
    , Jul 2022
    We had difficulty finding 1 Canal Ln as the GPS did not pick this place up. Also we are deaf and when selected Written English on the cruise info, we expected to get the tour information in written form. I had also requested an ASL interpreter but I realize this was short notice. I would recommend you make interpreters an option and have written transcript for deaf tourists. Otherwise, the boat ride was nice with beautiful viiews and staff were helpful and friendly.

    The scenery and the experience were great! The boat was 10 minutes late, and took another 20 minutes to seat all and take off.
