I was solo exploring Calgary while there for work, and on the train (I am an east coaster, and we are known for being really friendly. I felt Calgarians were even friendlier, and more helpful!) a couple people suggested I go to the restaurant there because if you eat-you get to go to the observation deck for free. I was... More

Now a dwarf in a city of giants, this landmark has become a has been. The rotating restaurant at the top of the tower is noisy and lacks lustre. It seems to have turned, into the "lets take redneck grandpa to a place that may bring back memories". Let's not forget to take our five snotty nose redneck kids and... More

We were surprised how much it cost to go up in the tower. $18 per adult. My husband didn't want to pay it but I figure why not we may never have the chance again. We were surprised to see that there are buildings taller than than the tower. We stayed for 15 minutes and left. 15 minutes for $36... More

The tower is great, just make sure it's a clear day so you can take advantage of the view and see the mountains. If you go up to the restaurant for lunch you can get into the observation tower for free.

The tower use to be one the tallest places in Calgary. But now, there are higher places that tower over the Calgary tower. if you never been up there before, its worth going up once. But I wouldn't spend my money again. ($18 to go up adult) The view is Pretty cool. To look North, there are a lot of... More

The kids loved seeing Calgary from the tower. It is beautiful and the glass floor is cool too. We didn't eat here so I can't comment on that, but the view is perfect

The Calgary Tower is a must see for all travelling through Calgary. There is such awesome views of the city from the tower. This is not just for travellers but some Calgarians have never gone up the tower at all. For those travellers in the bottom of the tower they have a gift shop as well as convenient store. They...

Went there a while ago and it was fun. A little pricey to go to the top, but my boys enjoyed themselves :) Everyone should go once.

My friend and I went at night which made spending 18$ worth it because it was pretty. Otherwise 18$ is kind of expensive for what there is. I expected there to be more glass floor to look down, but it was only a small area. It was just ok.
