What Guests Are Saying

What an amazing experience! The folding kayaks are very cool all on their own, but when you pair them with colourful lights and a fantastic fireworks show, it's an event you don't want to miss! The historic Rideau Canal and beautiful architecture of downtown Ottawa were the cherries on top! Highly recommend this tour!
