Tours that show off the historical sites found on any postcard are a dime a dozen—so it's time for something a little different. The "(de)" in Ottawa (de)tours is a deliberate play on words, as the guides here deviate from the expected and break down Ottawa's history and culture in more depth and diversity as well as show of how delightful their guides are. In one tour, guides point out the neighborhood's food-bearing trees, leading into a discussion about sustainability; in another, guides lead guests through Ottawa's largest mall, kicking off a seminar on the culture of "mall ratting." At the end of each tour, guests are invited to continue the conversation at a nearby establishment—and join the group for monthly meetups to stay abreast of the theme and social issues uncovered.
