a double-decker bus tour

A double-decker bus experience was on Lilah's bucket list of 'things to do' this summer.

And since we aren't heading to London, England anytime soon, I decided a bit of research in our neighbourhood was necessary. Anyway, it turns out that the only way we could ride a double-decker bus, in Ottawa, was to take a guided tour of the city. So we did just that! I've been on a few different guided tours of Ottawa, over the years, and it seems that I always come away with a bit more knowledge each time. Lilah really enjoyed the experience too.

So there it is, the long Labour Day weekend and our last hurray of summer, aboard a double-decker bus!


  1. What a great idea! We don't have those in our city... but I have been on the NYC and London ones... Ottawa may have to be my next stop!

    Your city is beautiful.

  2. Hi Jill, yes I love those big red double deckers and living in the UK, we ride on them often.

    Buses here in Scotland though are blue......not just quite the same!!!

    Im so looking forward to reading all about your journey to Phebe....I hope you plan on blogging while there....LOL!

  3. That's so funny! When we were holidaying in Victoria this summer, all Sylvie wanted to do was ride the big red buses too - so we did! We ended up getting a two day pass since they enjoyed riding around and getting on and off to see all the sights. Glad you had a great little excursion together before your big trip!
