A nice way to see the city from above. Great views of the city and Rockies on a clear day. Informative panels all around to explain some of the sights, though it wasn't always easy to spot exactly where the thing they were describing was.

We squeezed in a visit in the hour before 6 PM closing and boy was it stressful to locate. We walked with our toddler in a stroller from our downtown hotel and despite GoogleMaps and having written down instructions on how to access the Lookout, we ended up walking around the entire building block before trying to navigate the elevators to take the glass elevator up to the Lookout. As a tourist, my humble opinion is to please consider ample signage to direct wayfinding. Once there, we did enjoy the panoramic views and our toddler loved it. Not much to see beyond the one lookout floor; we’ve been to several lookout towers in various countries so nothing was outstanding about this one. Good to tackle on your trip to say you did it.

Great place to see the city of Vancouver from 360 degrees. There is a downloadable audio so take some headphones for your phone.

Vancouver Lookout is well worth the cost to see the city from a different angle and the views of the mountains are amazing

Vancouver lookout was worth a visit. Was a bit tricky buying the tickets as no one on the desk & have to complete yourself on your phone or using one of their computers. Was nice and quiet when we went, views are great!

This is a nice place to get a bird's eye view of Vancouver from across the water! It makes a lovely hangout too.

Observation decks are always fun places to visit to get a different perspective on a city you're visiting. We came here a few years ago when we were at a conference and we really enjoyed our time here. The price of admission was a bit steep, but such is life and you roll with things while on vacation. The view is pretty amazing though and it was really nice to see Vancouver lit up at night. It's a nice observation deck to visit if you're in town.
