Toured Parliament Hill, and the Peace tower also went to Question period which was very interesting. Be prepared very tight security RCMP everywhere!

“Peace Tower”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

The views from the tower were magnificent and it was free to get in if you didn't want to see the rest of Parliament. We really enjoyed all the sculptures around the hill too.

“A highlight of our trip”
Reviewed October 23, 2011

The Parliament building is architecturally marvellous - a no-expense-spared, over-the-top prestige creation build to symbolise a nation and its pride. Of course visitors have to be shifted around in groups, and security is obviously needed when the Houses are in session. Even though it was not high season, our group was large and diverse and it was hard to hear the guide's commentary. I'd have liked to hear more on the art and architecture of the place, less about the voting procedures and worthy but dull procedural stuff.

Reviewed October 23, 2011

We can't believe that we didn't know about the show they put on at night on the parliament buildings, well done.

“Best light show ever!!!!”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

I went for an evening stroll of Parliament and city center. What an added treat to be greated with and amazing light show with the Parliament building as the backdrop. I was amazed how everyone came out and sat on the lawn to enjoy the festivities. There were also street bands playing by the restaurants so it was a great night!
