A fascinating tale of what stories are told about the nation through our monuments. What is forgotten and what is remembered. Tonya is a eminent specialist in her field who brings her research to light in an engaging and tangible way. A great tour that I highly recommend for any tourist or resident interested in how we make a capital city.

I lead an annual group of undergraduate students from the University of Maine on a field trip to Ottawa, Ontario. This year, we decided to try something a little different - the Nostalgia walking tour offered by Dr. Tonya Davidson through Ottawa (De)tours. The tour was fantastic. It was informative, educational, and fascinating, but it was also fun and very entertaining. My students loved the whole experience, and several of them thanked me for setting up the tour with Dr. Davidson. Highly recommended.

We took the citizenship tour and we loved it! It was very instructive from an historical perspective and allowed us to challenge our mindsets.
I highly recommend it.
