It was a miserable day so not a good view but the staff soon cheered us up. A very quick journey to the top of the Tower where Denise pointed out the sites including several deer feeding. She told us the history of the area, explained about the Peace Bridge and generally was very informative. It did help that we... More

You get beautiful view from the deck at the top. We enjoyed time spending here. The staff here is knowledgeable and willing to give you all information.

This attraction offers a nice view of the surrounding 1000 Islands and is roughly $11.00. The staff are friendly and helpful as well. I would rate this attraction as pretty good but the price is slightly high for what is offered.

The skydeck is a quick little stop to get a great view of the Islands and the surrounding area. We visited on a Wednesday so it wasn't busy at all - I think the family spent a total of about 30 minutes enjoying the views from the 3 levels.

The trip to the top is a long elevator ride but the view is spectacular! Guides at the top explain what you are looking at and two additional floors offer more breathtaking panoramas.

Guide at the tower was informative. The gift shop was old and smelly and the viewers weren't working.

Within walking distance from Hill Island Lodge. Friendly, and informative staff. Large gift shop with lots of items. Awesome 360 degree view above the St. Lawrence River, and area 400 feet below.

You can't miss this tower - it certainly stands out in an area full of trees. Located in Ontario - about 100m from the border with the US, it offers great views of the 1000 island area and across the water into upstate New York. There are 3 viewing areas - one inside and two outside. You need to go... More

Wonderful experience, fast elevator to the top of the tower, gift shop and coffees or soft drinks on the premises; near 1000 islands parkway so you could also go hiking or bring a picnic for your lunch or snacks.Friendly staff and very knowledgeable!
