“Amazing views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We were fortunate to get in for a tour & ended up in the clock tower at the very top! If you walk around the tower you will see all the view of Ottawa, & Quebec & at each stop it actually has a map listing everything that you are looking at!!! A little high for me, but awesome!!!

“Must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

Great view of the city, lots of history. Be prepared for a full security screening, even young children. We got there as soon as it opened and there was no wait at all but on our way out, there was a line out the door. Worth the visit though. The RCMP were either friendly and informative, or just taking themselves too seriously.

“A definate must-see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

When you are in Ottawa, definately visit the Peace Tower. It is very impressive and stately and is a recognizable sight in Canada. We found the Peace Tower Bell Monument at the back of the property very interesting, as the Peace Tower was destroyed by a fire, and yet the bell kept ringing before the tower fell. It was a touching story as part of Ottawa's history.
