“Show Respect For Our Fallen”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Besides the spectacular view, I enjoyed the opportunity to show respect for the men and women who gave up their lives for our freedom.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Great, free, guided tour. Lovely architecture and a terrific history lesson. Every Canadian should do this (a number of Americans on our tour were very impressed as well)

“Nice view in clear days”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Nice to go up and see the city, if the weather cooperates. I like the gorgoyles at different corners of the clock room with their little messages underneath them! Absolutely fascinating for kids. You have to wait for the elevator up/down so it may get busy at certain times if there are a lot of visitors.

“Lovely View of Ottawa”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

The elevator to the Peace Tower is small and can be crowded, but the view up to the top is certainly well worth the detour.

“Moving but crowded”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

This section of the parliament building was very informative but also very crowded the only way of regulating numbers was allowing a limit of 6 people in the elevator, it got very crowded at the top, however the memorial chamber was incredible
