Beautiful overview

Calgary Tower is the ideal spot to overview the city and the surrounding landscape. On clear days even the Rocky Mountains are clearly visable from Calgary Tower.

The electronic support and commentary was excellent, clearly identifying significant city buildings and features.

My wife dislikes heights but found this tolerable, even enjoyable. Ate in Restraunt. Good and reasonable cost. Would have liked more souvenirs available in gift shop.

My wife and I visited at about 10am on a Monday, with a voucher included from our Rocky Mountaineer tour. The entrance at ground level was deserted and we went straight up. When we got up there the viewing gallery was full of screeming kids. There was no room to experience or even photograph the skywalk, and the whole 360... More

This tower can be somewhat dwarfed by the surrounding high rise buildings and it may look like you would see very little but persevere and head to the top where you get a great view around the city. There is also a perspex platform where you seem to step out into thin air - a bit scary at first. The... More

Located at the heart of town, the Calgary Tower offers a great panoramic view to see Calgary from the above. The admission fee is a bit steep at Can$18 per adult per visit, or Can$149 per year for an annual pass good for up to 4 people. There are two restaurants including the rotary Sky 360 restaurant and Ruth's Chris... More

The tower is really cool and a great view of the city. However, $18 for an elevator ride is kinda silly. There's nothing special, no tourist effort, and minimal information provided. The view lives up to expectation but I would never pay more than $10 to go again or take out of town family.

I was there with my family and we had a lot of fun! We took lots of pics and enjoyed the sunset. My recomendation is to take an audio guide, you will learn a lot about Calgary.
