  • This was a very good tour that was free. Guide gave a good overview of the Quebec and Canadian government.  more »
  • I went and look at various reviews and join guided tours start from 9:00. I don't know where the entrance and walk around. Discover the visitor center on the South side of the building. Staff in the tent from the freezer with a guided tour and explained. Is first tour of France, tour in English and 30 minutes after that. Freezer tirelessly and have a freezer and thought about guided tours in English are largely of free time. Orange for the freezer seal the entrance. As airport baggage, emergency tour is to present the Passport takes the name tag. Room shortly after opening, so will not open door yet (so there was open in the middle). I think that has visited the freezer you can join at any time, so know the time, watching the changing of the Citadel. Inside the building is beautiful, and stained-glass Windows, murals and door decorations so there. Also you can also know the origin of the flag of the province of Quebec, was very happy with. Personally, gorgeous, liked more than Notre Dame.

  • Interesting and educative. I learned a lot about Quebec's history and politics. I will even come back even though I already did the tour once; it's just that great.
  • It was under construction when I visited so I just took pictures from outside. The roundabout is very pretty! Lots of flowers all around.
  • I was really impressed! This place kept in really good condition and you can just visit it for FREE!
  • The stained glass and the beautiful portraits are reason alone to come to this free, and extremely well maintained site!
  • Very informative and educational tour of the building. Learned lots about Quebec's history and it's political system in 45 minutes.
