Cruised the Ottawa and par of the Gatineau River. Commentator was very good. Cruise was 1.5 hours and well worth it.

Great way to view the Parliament and other buildings from the river. Perfect length, 1.5 hours, leaving lots of time for other sight seeing. Pleasant and Informative tour guide on the mic. Lots of picture opportunities.
