  • My husband and two teen age girls were visiting Ottawa for a wedding. We had never been to Ottawa before. We found escape bike tours on the web. They had great reviews. We booked a two hour bike tour. It was absolutely amazing and worth every penny. Great way to see this beautiful city. Thank you

  • We had a great time cycling around Ottawa with Sparky - our energetic livewire guide. It was really fantastic in the way the tour was paced ( we are not regular bikers at all ). Had a great time !! If you done the Bike tour with Escape in Ottawa, then your trip is incomplete. Thansk Sparky and Escape.
