The visit to Parliament and the guided tour was beyond our expectations. The building itself is not opulent like historic venues in Europe, but has a dignified beauty and its own style. Our guide was excellent.

Pageantry and loyalty to the Queen and Commonwealth is powerful. Commentary in English was wonderful but the sound was poor as every word echoed around the building made it difficult to hear quite often.

Beautiful dining room, excellent food, good service and resonable price. The dining room appears quite formal with white linen tableclothes, etc. However, most people were obviously tourist just like us, attired in slacks and sturdy walking shoes.

Enjoyed the English tour through the Parliament Building. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Legislative meeting rooms were beautiful and regal. Exterior gardens were gorgeous - especially the mixture of flowers, shrubs and vegetable - all beautifully manicured.

Both my husband and I have worked with state and the federal government in the United States, so we have an interest in politics and try to visit state and federal capitals on our trips. The Quebec parliament building is lovely, and the tour was informative and thorough. Note that you will need to provide a passport or photo ID... More

We visited this site twice. I could have spent much more time there--it was that captivating. The plants on the outside of the facility were unreal. We had a wonderful lunch there. Don't pass up visiting this site.

It's a very interesting building with a nice park around it. There are also some unusual monuments in the park. You can go to a guided tour inside the building and see where the Quebeck parliament work. The tour is in English or French and it is free. You can get tickets near the Parliament building.
