Fantastic views of the city, with a free and interesting audio guide. Prices were quite good compared to what I’ve seen for similar attractions in some other cities. Recommended!

The tower was great! I did the headphone guided tour and it was very informative. There is also a short film that was good. The tower is older than I thought ... You can learn things even on vacation. There is an area with a...More

Great views, but a better option is to the restaurant for lunch, the food is good and reasonably priced. If you spend more than $25, then you get free access to the viewing gallery.

I have to admit we were looking forward to ticking this off our list but it was very underwhelming. Unlike most cities with a tower, the Calgary tower is much smaller than neighbouring buildings so the view isn’t that incredible!

Although surrounded by many tall buildings it still manages to show an excellent view of Calgary and the surrounding area. It was very interesting to see inside the other buildings that were being built around it. Worth the time and money

Fantastic views even on a dull day. Good photo opportunity of views of Calgary and the surrounding country. Standing on glass floor an uncomfortable feeling looking down on the street far below but you have to do it.

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