Great views of Calgary - good informative audio tour. Glass floor at top was good fun surprising how many people at top who were scared of heights.

Calgary doesn't necessarily possess world class sites but from the tower you can see all main attractions such as ricer, Olympic park, Stampede area. The electronic guide provided works pretty well and by giving you information makes the visit more interesting.

The Calgary Tower was the first place we went when we arrived in Calgary. It was very educational - and the view was spectacular. Highly recommend going there. The audio tour was great. Well worth the $18.00!

The Calgary Tower has an interesting history itself, and offers excellent 360 deg. views around Calgary providing a greater sense of the city and it’s growth & development patterns.

Came early at opening no waiting at all. Beautiful views and helpful guides within. Bring camera that’s a must. Beautiful city on the upswing seen in action some construction going on but none was invasive in our stay

This is Calgary’s main city’s icon. The view from the top it’s beautiful. Tickets are like $18 dlls each and it only includes the elevator up. There’s a nice gift shop in the bottom.

Incredible views of the city. You can see planes at the airport and the Rockies as well. The glass floor is great. A walk around the area is full of old beautiful architecture

Beautiful to see our city from that high up. The glass floor is cool to look at. Price I thought was a bit to high for what you get. My husband and I with our 6 year old daughter was 50$

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