"Friendly and Knowledgeable Owners"

“The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable. I read about them on their website and recognized them immediately! The local scenic tours need to make a deal with them because during our brief visit we heard several people ask them for recommendations! They are like the local tourist information center. We did not buy tickets in advance but it did start getting busy as we were leaving.”

"Absolutely Stunning Views"

“Travelling to Ottawa from Toronto, I was on the lookout for scenic places for a photo opportunity. Came across this place and decided to stop. Buying tickets from the ticket shop is easy. It has lovely gifts and postcards for sale. Toilets are available for use for customers. The elevator takes you to the top of the viewing tower. You will be greeted by absolutely stunning views of the area around. Have a look at some of the pics. Worth every penny/cent spent.”

"Friendly and Helpful Staff"

“Such a stunning view. The guide at the top was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Staff was friendly and helpful as well. This something worth experiencing.”
