Loved this trip!

I did this trip with my best friend and we had so much fun!
There were a few things that made us feel like we went back in time, like ruins and a museum. The suggested lunch spot was good and you get a discount if you show your trip book. All around great day ... looking forward to doing more trips

Best day trip from Ottawa

I've done a couple of GWT trips within Ottawa and this has been my favourite so far. Loved the hikes, a few hidden gems and some really cute towns. Bring bug spray in the summer time! 5/5
