Used a 2 for 1 coupon so for a family of 4 it cost us $27.00, which was super reasonable. The staff however, looked bored out of their minds (one was even reading a book while waiting to pass out the audio guides). The view is incredible but was very hazy when we went in the evening. I would suggest... More

Although the Calgary Tower is no longer the tallest building it is still worth the trip to the top to have a birds eye view of the city, suburbs and surrounding mountains, including the hills leading to the Rocky Mountains. The sections of glass flooring is fun and the views of the street below give a thrill to some -... More

My partner and I visited Calgary for a meeting. We didn't really have any time for exploring, but we stopped at the Calgary tower on our way back to the hotel right before we had to leave. Tickets to go up to the top were 18$ each. That seemed a bit ridiculous. 10$ would have been more reasonable. However, we... More

We visited the tower on a clear day. The audio tour which accompanies your admission is great. It is easy to use and it gives lots of great information about what you are seeing. You can choose to listen to as much or as little as you want. It really makes the trip to the tower much more meaningful since... More

We visited about 3 years ago...love the addition of the walking tour guides in numerous languages. Our guest from China was able to enjoy the view and learn about Calgary in a language she understands. My son being older; he was more inclined to take the challenge of standing on the glass observatory deck. It was the highlight of our... More

It's been years since I've visited the Calgary Tower but this time I got to see it through the eyes of my children. The highlight was definitely the glass floor which can make you weak kneed looking down. The cost of admission includes an audio guide which provides lots of information of what you're seeing. It's a quick visit and... More

This experience gives a very clear & good understanding of the city & on a clear day, the mountains. A great section is standing on the glass floor & viewing what's below. The headphones & self select narration covers all areas well.

Went to the observation level before having a fantastic dinner at Sky 360. Fantastic views, excellent food and best service I've had in a long time. A little pricey but worth it; great for special occasions!

Our hotel was right across the street so went up to the Tower before dinner and what a view! Had fun taking pics and seeing Calgary from bird's eye view!
