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 for small groups 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.

Taf is an amazing tour guide. Despite it being minus 25 outside, he introduced me to Ottawa from a new point of view and made my trip amazing. Taf told me many interesting and shocking stories about buildings, culture and history in Ottawa and took me to many beautiful gems that are not easy to discover if you are a tourist. He also took great pictures of me and was very patient and kind. Definitely recommend Taf and his tour as must if you are visiting Ottawa.

Taf est vraiment attentionné et accommodant. Il prend le temps d’expliquer et nous fait sentir à notre aise. Nous n’étions pas sûrs de venir et Taf s’est montré très compréhensif. Je recommande cette expérience qui donne un bon aperçu d’Ottawa. Même si j’y suis allé plusieurs fois, j’ai découvert des endroits nouveaux.

We took the tour on January 1st. Yes your heard well, Jan 1st! Taf’s tour was the only one available on that day and we are extremely greatful this was the case. He is an awesome tour guide, made everything very fun, he is super knowledgeable, plus he is a professional photographer, so he took amazing pictures of us. We super recommend it!

Taf was so accommodating and friendly during this last minute booking. My husband and I wanted to explore Ottawa and Taf taught us so much more than we could have anticipated. The 2 hours flew by and he truly made us feel like we were just all friends walking around Ottawa together. 100% would recommend!!!!

Taf has a very good knowledge about his home town. Besides that he knows to tell things in a funny way. We can hardly recommend his tour.

Awesome tour and personalization! Taf will show you around beautiful places in Ottawa, share cool history facts and set you up with recommendations based on your preferences. If you want to skip something or explore something in more detail, Taf will tailor the tour for you. Great experience!!
