Because of the morning rain, we were unable to see though the windows. The guide should have cleared the steam.
Reply From Gray Line:
Hi Susan, 

Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on your recent tour in Ottawa. Unfortunately, we can't predict the weather for any of the days we operate our tours, but you are correct that how we react can always be subject for improvement or alterations--in this case perhaps preemptively using the defrosters on the bus. We apologize that you felt the steamy windows in the bus affected your tour experience, but unfortunately this is a common result from cool and wet temperatures outside, and crowd of people inside. We hope that when you were able to Hop Off the bus you enjoyed the experience!

Beau trajet qui complète bien la visite en bus

The bus tour is comprehensive - go around once and you get a really good understanding of the city and decide which places you are interested in - then go around again and get off to visit those venues. It is really useful that you can take the boat tour after your bus ticket period has lapsed.The boat tour would have been better if we had sat on the right hand side of the boat!
