Pros: It was a brand new train, very clean. It was not even half full. The back of the seat was very high, very comfortable. The space for legs were big. It was so cheap. The services at Ottawa station & on the train were excellent. Staff were very nice. I really enjoyed the trip. Great experience. Cons: Can we have a free tea or coffee on the train? I ordered a tea. It was $3. I only had cash. But they took cards only. It was so embarrassing. Tips: Get the train station at least 30 minutes early. The check-in started 30 minutes before the train departure.

City Information

Ottawa

If big cities such as Toronto or Montreal appear too crowded for your taste, consider Ottawa for a change. Boasting a small-town vibe with a vibrant art scene, the city will appeal to all kinds of travelers. Ottawa’s star attraction is the Rideau Canal, which meanders its way through the city center. In the summer months, the canal is full of boats and cyclists who wander about, and in the colder months of the year, it becomes the largest ice skating rink in the world. If you are a fan of architecture, don’t miss out on Parliament Hill, which features three amazing neo-Gothic structures. For those who seek to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, Gatineau Park, located just 15 minutes from Downtown, offers the reprieve you need.

Ottawa features a very diverse food scene that caters to everyone’s needs. If you just can’t get enough of French delicacies, head to Signatures Restaurant, which is housed in a Tudor Revival-style mansion. If you want to try out Canadian signatures, try Atelier instead.
