The City Tour was on September 9 noon was fantastic. The bus went on a smooth and steady ride and stops at various museums. The route was concise from Elgin to Lansdowne, Dow's Lake to Byward Market, Sussex to Rockcliffe area, before turning around at the Aviation Museum. We went across to the Quebec side on Alexander Bridge, came back on Portage, and came back on Wellington. The Parliament Buildings were right in front of us due to road closure with exception to our bus!
