“Excellent value and well worth a visit”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

Great views of the city and well worth the shortish queue for the lift. The exhibition relating to the Great War was small but very well done.

“Good city views”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

This is a lovely location to get all-round views of the city. We went up as an optional extra at the end of the our Parliament tour. It's worth exploring the city a bit first, so that you know what you are looking at - the river, canal, cathedral etc. as well as the Gatineau area beyond the river, where the escarpment of the Canadian Shield is evident.

“You have to do the tour”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

After doing the Parliament tour make sure you visit the Peace Tower. You may have to wait in line as only 7 people are allowed up the elevator at the same time. There is great views of Ottawa and the surrounding areas.

“Didn't know it was part of parliament tour”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Right after you take the basic parliament tour, make sure you ask where the line is for the peace tower. You have to wait since there is only one small elevator to the top and the top only holds about twenty people. Still a must see.

“Great views”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

This is at the end of the visit to the Parliament buildings. There was a little wait but it is worth while as the views form the top are excellent.
