Travellers going to Ottawa are likely planning to take a walking or bus tour of Canada's capital, but they may not have considered seeing the city from the back of a rickshaw. Ottawa Rickshaws is an option for those who are looking for a unique way to take in all of the sights - from the ByWard Market neighbourhood and Elgin Street to Parliament Hill and Major's Hill Park.
Ottawa Rickshaws has been around since 2005, taking people by cart to various attractions across the city. Whether the runners are bringing people to a common attraction or helping them with scavenger hunts, this mode of transportation has been growing in popularity. Those who visit Ottawa will likely see these rickshaws while they are touring the city from late spring through fall, and they may just want to hop on board.
Also, travellers who are coming to town for one of the big festivals each year - such as the RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest, Canada Day or the Canadian Tulip Festival - may want to take the rickshaws to their destination, as they may be quicker than walking or cabs.
