If you are a history buff and appreciate fine architecture, you should visit the Parliament Building. Admission is free and although it is currently undergoing some renovations, visitors can get a good view about how the Quebec government works. Our tour guide, a political science student at nearby Laval University, was excellent and well versed in the workings of both... More

This tour was better than expected. They have tours in English and French. You will see where they hold the formal assemblies and learn about the history of the building and some of how the Quebec parliament parties are made.

Visited the Parliament Building a few minutes after it opened. Though the security was tight (we had to go through detectors and presented our passports as foreign tourists) and the personnel looked serious, we were quite happy to be informed that there is a free guided tour every 15 minutes and we appreciated that there is an English language tour....

Was a great overview of parliament, liked that we got to see the various chambers. Apparently if booked in advance can even observe a session. Great for rainy days, those on a budget as the tour is free

Lucky enough to have stumbled upon an official complete with the Royal Guard in full dress uniforms and precision drills. Great experience.

our group had a nice breakfast here then proceeded on a fairly short tour to see the current and former house chambers. Guide was very pleasant and informative. Need to scale a few steps to see them.

This is a gorgeous building, and stands alone, surrounded by gardens. I didn't go inside (not even sure if one could) but is a magnificent piece of architecture.

For our safety and theirs, gone are the days of wandering government buildings without security clearance. We signed up for the tour in a tent outside the building late morning and had to wait until 3pm to get in; they were busy weekdays! Bring your passports with you for a 45minute tour of this wonderful building. Pictures are allowed and... More

Free tour with guide after going through security. Very interesting to see the chambers and hear about the members. Takes about 45 minutes. A little history thrown in as well. Construction going on outside, but still some gardens to see , including awesome vegetable garden for their dining room, open to the public.

We took a guided tour as I think you are not allowed to do a self-guided one. Our tour was in English and our guide had a good command of this language. She was quite good on informing us on each area of Parliament we visited. Most foreigners do not realize that Quebec no longer has a bicameral legislature as... More
