It was still snowing. we still had amazing views of the city and river! the wait for the elevator wasn't too bad and on the way up we could see the bells.

The Peace Tower was really interesting for me on my first trip to Ottawa. I loved how large the structure was and standing at the base made me feel so small. It's a beautiful building, and if you visit during the day time you can really take in all the details.

That was the best view of ottawa I have ever seen! I've lived in Ottawa my whole life and I wish I had visited sooner. The elevator is a bit small but it was all part of the experience. Loved it, and I would definitely recommend.

I joined the tour of Parliament Hill and it included upto the Peace Tower. The tour was relative long and I did see some kids (young one) asked their parents when it is done. So, I am sure it is good for Adult or older teen but if below 5, I guess the parents will have a look of work... More

Going up the Peace Tower is included in your free Parliament Tour and it's totally worth doing it! The views over the city are really pretty and it's not over-crowded at the top.

Be sure to take in a free tour of our Parliament Buildings, including the Peace Tower. With bird's eye views over the city, the elevator ride gives a first-hand look at the bells that chime hourly. We met visitors from around the world, also interested in the architecture of this historic building. The library was beautiful.

Take the time to go up the Peace Tower. You need to get your free ticket at the tourist office at Wellington and Metcalfe Street but the 360 degrees views of Ottawa and Gatineau are fantastic. Go early for your ticket as they run out in busy times.
