It's not as expensive as you might think it would be. It was something like $15 entry and your ticket is valid all day. It is definitely recommended that you go during the daytime and when it gets dark. We were there first thing on Sunday morning not long after it opened and got some fantastic photos of Vancouver.

Besides the great view, they have very good and informative guided tours. Great place to see the sunset. A "must go".

The Lookout was an inexspensive way to see an overview of the city. It was a bright sunny day in all directions and gave us the opportunity to see everything.

Definitely recommend you take some time for the spectacular view. Worth the price. The entire city is visible. Gives you a good idea of the layout of the city. If spending a couple of days in Vancouver I would recommend this as one of your first stops.

There is great view of the city. Although is not as high as some other towers or even some taller building in the city the view is great.

The viewing deck from the Lookout showed the whole city, North Vancouver and a great Mountain view and view of the Burrard Inlet, English Bay and Stanley Park. I went when sunset was an hour away so I could see it in the daylight and as the sun went down and then after dark. You can go up earlier in... More

We have visited twice and the daytime view is great but at night although the view is still interesting it is no way as good as daytime when you can actually make out many of the places to visit in Vancouver. Beware, when only one lift is working give yourself time as it can take a long time to get... More

The lookout is a good 30-45minute attraction! We read all the info around the whole lookout, and we're done and back on the ground within 40mins! Good photo spots and nice to see the city from up high but don't give too much time out of your schedule for it! Appeared to be a free tour happening whilst we were... More

We had nice views of the city and especially liked the photos and explanations of the buildings pictured. The ticket was for the entire day allowing you to return to see the city at night.

I went to the Vancouver Lookout Tower and I found it very interesting. The view is nice (but you really have to go there when the weather is perfect! For example, when I went, there were clouds in front of some mountains in the North; so my view was a little bit hidden) Read all the little text although they... More
