We arrived in Vancouver during a "Pineapple Express" rain storm and could not visit this attraction for several days into our trip due to low visibility. We went on a Sunday and there were no lines with easy access. While the facility is old, it does provide a great 360 degree view of the area. It takes some time to... More

It's not the tallest building in the world but you can still enjoy great views of Vancouver, it's surroundings and mountains. To get most of it you need to visit it twice. In the morning windows ate still clean so you can get some decent pictures. Make sure you use polarized filter to get the best shots. In the evening... More

Try and you shall see how nice Vancouver is, with all the lights from the city. A nice way to end a whole day of shopping.

You always have to look at the thing from different perspective. Amazing view from the Lookout. Best thing is that you can use your purchased ticket more than once during the same day, so you can see the same view during the day and night. Great!

Wasn't sure what to expect of this. Was very happy we did this. Great views of the city and beyond. The elevator ride up and down provided great views as well. Guides were very helpful and knowledgable and they even had a step stool for my little one to use so he could also see. We were also lucky it... More

This place is within walking distance from Canada Place. Went early in the morning before our embarkation and we were the only ones there. The views are nice if you've never been to Vancouver, but you'll mostly see a lot of the downtown buildings. The weather wasn't very clear so you couldn't see the mountains that well. It's still a...

My wife and I visited the Vancouver lookout recently, and after having visited the Seattle Space Needle only days before it was an interesting comparison. At roughly the same price the Vancouver Lookout offers nothing more than a view, whilst it's a great view, you can't help but think it could have been far more interactive for that price. It's...

Vancouver Island, the U.S., excellent views of the city and mountains. One thing to note is that your ticket is valid all day, and it was interesting to go during the day and see the sites, and return in the evening to view the city lights. I would have liked to have more informational tidbits on the walk around. Otherwise,... More

We were here early on an overcast day and took advantage of the free tour offered. Our guide was excellent - she made us all feel welcome, engaged us in her commentary and took the time to respond to our questions. While the views weren't the best due to the weather, it was still very enjoyable and a worthwhile visit.
