As a sufferer of crippling vertigo, this was a bit of a white knuckle ride for me. The views over the city are excellent even though the day wasn't entirely clear. We'd first attempted to visit the day before, but were advised by the staff the views weren't very good (wonderful and appreciated honesty). There is a glass floor view... More

I was born & raised in Calgary & anytime I had visitors come to Calgary,I always took them to the top of the Calgary Tower. The Ultimate experience is to have dinner at the top of the tower. The top of the Calgary Tower rotates & it takes exactly One Hour to do a complete rotation of the entire city... More

Great way to see the lay out of the city and the history of city and its fore fathers, the commentaries are excellent.

I've been living in Calgary for 14 years and I really love going to the tower still! My kids love it and every single friend that comes to visit too. The views are lovely (except for the obstructing Oil towers North of it) The Glass walk portion is really cool too!

Waay to expensive for what you get. Hasn't changed much since the 80s. The small portion of glass floor is a nice touch, but really needs a big makeover to keep tourists coming.

Went to the top with a friend to eat at top (forget what the name was I went in 2014) provided us with a great view of Calgary as it rotated around while you were eating. All in all the food was ok the view was pretty cool but I found it to be overly priced.

brilliant experience, looking out over Calgary and a lovely meal. sitting and watching the tower revolve around the city and see the amazing sights at night is something we will never forget. the steak was something else, and so big. as was the rest of the meal. friendly and helpful staff made our stay enjoyable.

Visited the tower even although there was smog from the fires in Washington state since I was only in Calgary for a day. The view was limited due to the smog but I was able to see most of the sites around the city. The information provided using the portable guide was very useful and made it easy to get... More

The history of the tower and it's place in marking the skyline in Calgary are great reasons to visit. It just so happens to have an awesome restaurant on top too!
