Great view

A super way to look at Calgary from the air! Plenty of seats to enjoy the view. If you are brave you can stand on the glass platforms. Small gift shop for the usual novelties.

A must see when you visit Calgary just to see the city from an excellent view. The restaurant I hear is fabulous and a great night out to impress your mate or have fun with a bunch of friends.

The food at the top of the tower is the best in the area topped off with a wonderful view of Calgary and the surrounding area. You must make reservations ahead to get to experience this wonderful food in a restaurant with a view!

We've been up here before without kids and we knew they'd get a kick out of it. We were almost the first people up on a Sunday morning. It was nice having the place to ourselves. Very quiet and nice time to enjoy the sun coming up over the city. It's too bad there isn't a little coffee bar at... More

Great place to see the overview of Calgary....Could be compared with other places with towers but what is unique about this place is memorable to me and my husband because we had our wedding reception on this tower. It is not only a sign of Calgary Downtown but also a sign of our love for each other...

The Calgary Tower is always an iconic visit for new and old Calgarians alike. Admittedly, you may not spend hours and hours looking at the landscape of Calgary, however, its great for neat activity. The new lights are...interesting as well.

Good place to visit, if you have a few hours. If you know Calgary a little, or if you live here, then it is fun seeing the places you know from up there! Best if you combine a visit with some fair dining. Otherwise there is not much else to do, other than visit the gift shop and stand on... More

We took the Ctrain downtown with the grandkids for a trip to the top of the Calgary Tower, just to have an adventure. They thoroughly enjoyed the glass floor. Many of the visitors there were definitely afraid to venture onto the floor, with some of those that did actually holding onto the steel beams. This place is a must stop... More

I was so excited about this going to this place and was so glad that I did. Taking the elevator ride to the top was great and the view was outstanding. I have always loved the city of Calgary and to see it from this view was amazing. The glass floor section was very cool, being able to look straight... More
