You cannot resist yourself but to admire the enduring relevance and beauty of the Calgary Tower. It is the structural attraction that is seemingly a dwarf among the downtown's city structures around it. The wonder of it? Bring a camera with you, up there, on...More

Having never visited Calgary before it was great to get such an amazing view of the city! The price was reasonable and the lift rude up is so quick! Lots of room upstairs to take pictures and some pretty fun glass floors!

The visit was okay. The reason why you would like to visit this is that Calgary does not have many points of interest in my opinion but I only have been here for couple of weeks. The price is okay I suppose I would expect...More

The tower used to be the tallest building in Calgary but unfortunately the view in some areas is blocked by larger buildings. If you pick your day well you should be able to see the mountains which is great. If it's a bit foggy or...More

Stunning view from the top of the tower across Calgary. If you look closely on a clear day you can see the Rocky Mountains in the Distance. If you are in Calgary you should definitely plan a visit. There is a guided tour with headphones...More

Use a coupon, otherwise it's insanely expensive to pay full price. Amazing views of Calgary, and the walkout glass ledge is terrifying but a great photo op!

Friendly staff who greeted us at the door. Went up to the restaurant which was amazing to see 360 degrees of Calgary while eating a superbly made meal. Then to try and overcome my fear of heights by standing on the glass observation platform.

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