I went on a tour of the Parliament buildings with a visitor from the UK..I haven't been there for years (and years). Amazing building...the library is spectacular as is the view from the Peace tower. The senate is surprisingly smaller than I would have thought....More

I was on a free guided tour and everything was well organized. Tickets for defined time slots were able to be obtained in advanced. It was an eye-opening experience. Too bad it would be closed soon for renovation for ten years.

We did a lot of walking. The buildings are absolutely beautiful with so much history. Everywhere you look there is old amazing buildings and statues. There is a lot of restoration of the buildings going on right now but still beautiful

This is a wonderful, must see, place for anyone who comes to Ottawa. Public tours are available for free. Just pick up your tickets directly across the street. The guides are bilingual (French and English) and are very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this site.

You have to book the day you are visiting. Don’t worry there are plenty of tickets. Try to get your tickets in the morning.
