Urban Study Group tour is usually on Friday and Saturday. You just have to call and show up (With a small donation). But Parliament building tour is a bit tricky and definitely has to be booked quite earlier. If you want I can try to find someone who can manage a way into the Kahn's masterpiece. If you haven't already.
