Ok, first things first as there is still A LOT of misinformation online:
- You do not need to pre-book your tour! ! !
But it is highly recommended if you want to visit later in the day. If you come early in the morning...More
If you are interested in pure architectural spectacle, this building fits the bill. Pink marble, massive curtains and rugs, majestic windows, it's all here to marvel at. But if you stop to the think of the cost and time and effort put into it, in...More
This place is a well-organized tourist spot with guided tours that let you see a small part of this crazy 1000-room palace. Our guide was excellent, combining info w/ lots of jokes. It is very interesting, albeit depressing, but important to visit in order to...More
This building is worth the $12 admission. Remember your passport or you will be denied entry. The parliament building is huge, but you see little beyond the main halls and a few meeting rooms. There is a lot of stair climbing so be ready for...More

Hello .... no, you can not call 3 days before .... you have to do it 24 hours ... you leave your name and they ask you at what time it suits you to arrive to a guided tour ... another day you arrive 10 or 15 minutes before and at the entrance table they check your passport ... do not forget it because without it you will not be able to enter ..... take a taxi and ask it to take you to the pavilion of the Parliament and leaves you at the entrance .... do not worry, everyone knows where the entrance is ..... be careful, take a taxi from the company and not private as they are expensive .... good luck ...
