Eight travel and food bloggers from around the world are touring Ottawa this week with representatives of Ottawa Tourism.

Traditional travel writing has splintered recently, with some bloggers carving out niche audiences such as older women and vegans.

Ottawa Tourism is hoping to prove the city can compete with bigger cities by touring some of those bloggers around. The bloggers come from Canada and the United States, and from as far away as Amsterdam and Australia.

We've compiled Twitter reviews from some of the bloggers touring the city. Check them out below to find out how Ottawa is stacking up.
