"Our guide, Maria, was flexible, informative, funny and just delightful in every way. We stopped when we wanted, had lunch in a lovely place ... park area and even got watch some local playing ice hockey as we ate our delicious Italian take-out. I can't image seeing lovely Ottawa any other way than from the view of a bicycle. I'm so glad we did the tour. Thanks Maria, you made our day special."

“I had the pleasure of speaking with Maria before our bike tour and then meeting her. She is energetic and is dedicated to making sure her clients have the best possible experience from choosing the right bike to her wonderful tour guides. Thank you for making our tour of Ottawa a great one.”
"My daughter and I took the 2 hour tour while I was visiting her in Ottawa. Our guide Dick was very friendly and being a long time resident of Ottawa knew a lot about the city. We stopped a number of times to take pics and get some history and interesting facts about the area we were biking through. A definite MUST if you have a few hours to spare. I would highly recommend Escape Bicycle Tours."
"Chris really knows his stuff. He knew a lot more than my cousin who lives in Ottawa. He is very friendly and chats to everyone in the group. I will recommend this tour to anyone wishing to see Ottawa. I will definitely come again and this time stay over for a few days and hopefully participate in a longer tour."

We had a very enjoyable 2-hour tour with Brian checking out the main sites of Ottawa. It was the perfect combination of sunshine, trivia, banter, exercise and tourism. Thank you!

Maria led our tour and she was excellent. I am not a "biker" but she was very patient and encouraging. I was able to complete but it was a challenge. Marie was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. I would highly recommend this company and especially Marie as your guide.

We did the tour as a family of four with Sparky as our guide. Sparky was very enthusiastic and knew a lot about the city. She took us to places you probably wouldn't have visited on your own. You get to cover a lot of ground on the bikes. The bikes provided were great. We were in a group of 9 and two kids who didn't ride themselves. I never had the feeling that driving the bikes in the city was unsafe. Ottawa is very bike friendly!

We went on the 3 hour tour with our guide Nora. A couple of the group were a bit saddle sore by the end. What a great way to see Ottawa! You get a energy snack and a bottle of water. Mostly on the flat. Cross over into Quebec and back. Mostly on cycle tracks. A little bit tricky for a group of 6 cyclists to cross intersections keeping to the rules of the road which are different to those in Europe. Smiling Nora looked after us very well, very knowledgeable and safe, answered all questions. Highly recommend Nora and Escape Bike Tours
