“Know more about CANADA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

If you have seen enough of Canada sight from outside let's see something from inside! the tour guide will explain everything done inside the political kitchen and how the laws are cooked :)

It is really nice to now how the top people in the country are working to make the great Canada what it is now.

Piece of Advise: Don't take your kids with you, they will be board and tired as there are a lot of stairs to claim. Strollers not allowed, so you have to carry your little ones (as I did)


Must see!!

“Parliament”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

It's a nice walk if the weather is nice. It's free and the tour guides are really helpful. Also go to the peace tower, because the view from there is beautiful :)

“A must see when in Ottawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Pictures do not do the Hill justice. The buildings and setting are absolutely magnificent! For added pop go up the Peace Tower on a sunny day and the vista is remarkable

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

You absolutely can not visit Ottawa without visiting Parliament Hill and Buildings. It's breathtaking. It's a lovely walk, if the weather is cooperative. You have the opportunity for pictures, they have Mounties out and often ready for pictures as well. It's really nice to see history signs posted so it can also be a learning experience. Great for children as well.
