Great free tour. Get tickets early for more time choices. The trip up the tower was worth the wait. Great view from the top!

This was my first time to visit the Parliament buildings, and I have lived in Ottawa most of my life. The only thing that I wasn't able to do was go up the Peace Tower because the line was so long.
