We had just come from Toronto where we visited the CN Tower so the Calgary Tower paled in comparison. Nevertheless, the tower gave great views over the city and we had a tasty one-course lunch. Worth visiting for distant views of the Rockies if nothing...More

Spent a day being a tourist & couldnt miss the tower! Audio tour was fun to enjoy as a family. Clean & spacious on the deck.

It’s good, but the price is ridiculous! Beautiful views of the city, and great for picture memories, in my opinion it should be $10 per person rather than $19

The tower is now surrounded by buildings taller than it but it still has a great view south and sw towards the snow capped rocky mountains. I would recommend considering the time of day you head here as lighting is everything when the foothills are...More

To us, this is the only place you must visit in Calgary, which provides a panoramic view of the city. We went up before dusk and just waited there until it gets dark. There is also glass floor where you can test your courage.

We made reservations at the restaurant at the top of the tower. If you eat here you get the elevation fee comped. The food is good and the service is good!! The glass floor is fun once you get over the fear of falling (for...More

$18 for an adult. Nice view. But that is about it. Nothing special or spectacular by any means. There are a few historical anecdotal story boards, but that's pretty much it. The glass floor is a novelty. There is an optional audio tour but there...More

Have to say this is one of the more average towers I’ve been up. Calgary is a very compact city so there isn’t much cityscape to see. It isn’t clear enough to see the mountains generally. Strangest of all the elevator is indoors. You don’t...More

Had an opportunity recently to visit the Calgary Tower with some out-of-town visitors. I haven't been up there in years and might be a few more before I go back. First of all, $18.00 for an adult ticket to the top is rather steep. Then,...More

Not much else going on inside other than a couple of little shops, but nice to look and worth a walk to look at.

We went at the end of the day. We had about an hour at the top that was adequate time to enjoy the view and take pictures. There really isn't much up there. The history info on the walls was very interesting and worth a... More

The closest parking to us is the Palliser parkade, which is attached to our building complex. Entrance to the parkade is off 10th avenue.
