“O Canada”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

A tourist attraction that will impress all visitors. This is where it all happens for our Country. The peace tower is very impressive as is the entire parliament buildings. You can also enjoy the changing of the guards each morning during the summer

“Amazing views of Ottawa from 302 feet up”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Peace Tower has the most amazing views of Ottawa and best of all the tour is free. On the elevator ride up and down you can see the bells in the tower.

“Best View in Ottawa”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The view from the Peace Tower is the best in Ottawa. The Book of Rememberance is a must for every Canadian. Take a minute to acknowledge those who gave their lives for us.

“A symbol of Canadian parliament”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Definitely a must-see if you're in Ottawa for the first time. The Peace Tower is the center clock tower and the tallest part of the Parliament buildings. Beautiful observation point. Seems a bit sketchy, but very secure and constantly monitored, so you don't need to worry. Bring a pair of small binoculars with you if you want to get a better view of the city, but be careful not to have too many metal parts in it, as it will set off the security scanners as you enter parliament.
