What you'll do

Get ready to see the Best of Ottawa by bike! We'll ride Ottawa's impressive bike network to see its must-see areas and sights, and a few hidden gems. On this easy-going bike tour you will see 9 Essential sights: Parliament Hill, the Ottawa River Lookout, the ByWard Market, The Rideau River & Canal, Rideau Hall & Embassies, Rockcliffe Park, the National Gallery of Canada, and the War Museum. Learn essential info and hear stories at each stop. We'll also take you to charming quiet Neighbourhoods, nice Parks, scenic Views, and wonderful canal-side and riverside bike paths. The pace and feeling is casual, like riding the city with a friend. Everyone has been loving the bikes we provide - they are super comfortable and very fun to ride. We keep the groups sizes to a maximum of 10 people. We love to recommend things to do & great food for the rest of your stay. If you've never taken a bike tour before, Ottawa is the place to give it a try!

Shea, Diego & Fitz

We are Shea & Diego and we'd like to introduce you to our company Fitz Tours. We offer 2 highly-rated experiences led by ourselves and the "Fitz Family" - this means you may be helped out by Veronique or Christian and hosted by James or Cecily! They both have unique, friendly characters and are world travellers themselves. We've all combined our passion and knowledge to offer top-notch bike experiences here in Ottawa - the kind we look for when we go traveling ourselves. We keep the groups small, the content upbeat, and hope you leave feeling like you were hosted by a 'friend for the day' - or longer. We'll show you the best art, architecture, urban development, nature, and local events & festivals, but we also aren't afraid to show you the grit, imperfections, and realities of what living in Ottawa is like!
