The parliament tour is free and can be in french or english. You go through security screening to enter. The tour was well done and informative. There is a dining room that members of parliament eat in and is also open to visitors. The tour is definitely worth doing.

We took a most interesting and informative 40-minute English-language tour of the Québec Parliament Buildings with a most charming and knowledgable guide, Rachel. We learned much of the history of the National Assembly as we toured the building with its stunning stained glass and other works of art. Our young guide, Rachel, took us right into the blue-painted legislative chamber... More

I had a free personal tour of the building (available to anyone, just happened that no other people came at that time). The building had many fine architectural details and it was fun to learn some of the history and symbolism as well as the governmental structure. The grounds are especially nice with great landscaping.

A very interesting walk through the Parliament House of Quebec Provence. The guide was engaging, well spoken and encouraged questions. The governmental chambers are elaborately decorated. Just one reminder...bring your passport (or a copy of it) a Drivers Licence or something with your picture on it. There is a screening for security. Outside of the building is nicely lit at... More

Beautiful architecture, statuary, but the gardens in front steal the show. Herbs and vegetables and, if you know a little French, the sign welcomes you to sample the tomatoes, beans, etc. There's a great fountain brought to Quebec recently from Bourdeaux by a local businessman.

We did not take the tour, although it was free and was probably very interesting. I believe there is lovely art work inside. From the outside we enjoyed seeing the fountain in front. Look for the spitting frogs.

While walking around old Quebec, we came across the gardens of Parliament House. The building itself was spectacular with all the statues and was complimented by the beauty of the gardens. We also did a tour of the inside of Parliament House. It was a 30 minute tour and it showed one of the rooms where the members sit. The... More

We took a guided tour of the Parliament Building (free), led by a pleasant young lady who spoke English. There is a separate tour given using French speakers. Both houses of Parliament were visited along with several other rooms and areas on at least 3 different levels. It probably took about an hour to tour. The outside grounds, gardens, statuary,...

We went on a Sat. morning, and they told us we were free to roam most areas. There were guides in each place. The architecture is terrific. The stained glass is beautiful. Put this building on your must see list, not just the outside. And it is free. The restaurant was closed.
