The Capital Information Kiosk, which I would regard to as a Center, is a one-stop service center for tourists or visitors to obtain all the information about Ottawa and its key attractions.

Located directly across from the hill, this is where you can get free tickets to tour the parliament buildings. Tickets are only available for the current day. This is a 30 minute tour is well worth it. Note you can't bring in large bags but smaller bags can go through the airport like security on the hill.

How can the nation's capital downgrade its major tourism information to a "kiosk"? This is such a race to the bottom and another indicator how Canada is losing its place in the world. Go to any major city in the world -- London, Berlin, Melbourne, etc. etc. and you will find they have excellent tourist resources for those visiting. But... More

The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. I did prefer the old location across from the Parliament Buildings as it was much easier to access.

We stopped by the Kiosk a couple of times for suggestions and brochures. The attendants were very helpful and the information available was worth the stop.
