We showed up about a half hour before the last tour of the day and were given tickets. The building is as beautiful inside as out and we learned alot about how the Quebec government works without being overloaded, and could ask (and did) any questions we wanted. Well worth the trip. They also have a restaurant and cafe but... More

Before we went to Quebec City I tried to reserve a tour per the website but they weren't available. No problem I think the website didn't clearly state that there were regular free tours in French and English. Our guide was fantastic, so informative. Well worth your time for about an hour tour. Of course, you'll have to have id.... More

Definitely worth a visit. English-language tour guide was good, but exhibits, etc. are entirely in French.

Our tour started with breakfast at parliament. Eggs,bacon,toast. Then we had a parliament guide to show us where the parliament actually convene. Very interesting and formal. Guide was informative but not friendly. Beautiful huge paintings in rooms.

Very interesting tour to understand the history and government of Quebec. The building is beautiful and simply amazing architecture. There is on going construction being conducted on the building. Glad they are making sure it stands the test of time.

If you are looking to do something interesting and free, take the parliament building tour. The guide was informative and gave a good overview of the history of Quebec and the government system. I actually learned something. The tour was mainly seeing the two Parliament floors. The tour lasts 45 minutes. If you go, 16 year olds and over need... More

Very interesting tour to understand the history and government of Quebec. The building is beautiful. There is construction on one end of the building that is a little noisy, but it will be a beautiful new entrance in 2018.

We did not have time to go inside this building but did walk all the way around it during our time in Quebec City. This is an elegant building surrounded by lovely gardens and historic statues as well as a beautiful fountain. Unfortunately, there was a lot of construction going on here which did detract from the enjoyment of gardens... More

The building can be seen only on a tour. Tickets can be purchased at a kiosk outside the entrance. Our tour guide did a commendable job of interleaving history and design on the tour.
