About this Event

Ottawa & Tulip Festival Photography Tour

Join Taku and wander the beautiful city of Ottawa during the tulip festival! This is a great opportunity to visit the nation’s capital at one of the most beautiful times of the year.

We will stay in downtown Ottawa and visit the ByWard Market, the grounds of the Parliament Buildings, stroll through the thousands of tulips lined along the park, and more.

This is a three-day, two-night package which includes:

  • Two night’s accommodation at Andaz Ottawa ByWard Market, a beautiful modern boutique hotel (see the photo below, of the beautiful view of Ottawa taken from the rooftop patio)
  • 2 x breakfast at the hotel's Revel & Feast restaurant
  • Round trip transportation costs to Commissioners Park from hotel
  • Photography guide by Taku for all three days

  • Transportation to/from Ottawa
  • Transportation to/from the hotel on the first and last day

  • Travel Insurance
  • Anything of a personal nature
  • Gratuities

Accommodations

By default, each participant will have their own room at the hotel.

Participants can share a room with their friends or family, but they are responsible for finding a suitable roommate.

Please only select the Double Occupancy option if you already have someone to share a room with. You can email me the name of the person you will be sharing your room with.

Getting to Ottawa

Transportation to/from the Andaz Ottawa ByWard Market to your home city is not included as people often have their own ways of travelling. Options for travelling from Toronto to Ottawa include:

  • VIA Rail— as low as $40 one way; https://reservia.viarail.ca/search.aspx?s=TR
  • Greyhound—as low as $70 roundtrip; https://www.greyhound.ca
  • Drive yourself to Ottawa—Driving will take approximately 4-5 hours

Please confirm with Taku to ensure the min. number of pariticpants have been met before booking any transporation to Ottawa. See below for more information.

Fitness

Much of our exploring in Ottawa will be on foot, so we will be walking quite a bit. Comfortable shoes and attire with the ability to walk a full day is required. The majority of our walking will be done on flat land, with the occasional small hill.

Camera Knowledge

Participants should have a good working knowledge of their cameras. Since we will be exploring the city all day, there will be no formal session on how to operate your cameras.
