  • This place is so beautiful and so worth checking out. The most beautiful architecture you will see in the heart of Victoria! It is so nice, and lights up at night so you can see it from far away. Would highly recommend walking by if you can't make it inside to check it out. Makes Victoria an even more beautiful city
  • As a visitor to BC, this is definitely a place to check out. The building structure is beautiful and there are a lot places near by to see. There are nice flowers and a small garden around the back of the building. The view is awesome as you are right by the water and lots of activities to do near by and local tours.
  • The building is magnificent. Staff are nice and friendly. Security is accommodating. The tour is very educational and learnt a lot about the history of Canada, British Columbia and the Parliament Building. Was lucky enough to observe debates from the public galleries after the tour. I love British Columbia.
  • A breath taking architecture and history, of Canada and how the government works.A must see, inside the tour is well worth it and get to see and learn a lot. At night it’s a spectacular view when the lights are turned on.
  • This place is unbelievable you have to see it for yourself. Pictures doesn't do it Justice. My favorite part was seeing how many women are in High power and of Authority!
