What our guests say about us …

  • "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."

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."

Our tour guide was knowledgeable, interested and interesting and really had a passion for his city. The tours are ultimately customizable so never a worry about not hitting the right speed and tempo."
