Wish I had gone here first. Would have helped us get our bearings and decide what we should see first. Only had a week in Vancouver and we didn't get to everything on our list. Another visit is needed.

Not the highest building in the world - in fact far from it. However, it was high enough to serve the purpose. The glass elevator takes you to the top and then you are free to walk the circumference of the tower. Well worth a visit on a clear day.

If you want to locate a site from above, the observation deck has many points labeled. This lookout is not nearly as high as the space needle in Seattle so you can see things more clearly. The telescopes are free.

Perfect views (and we were very lucky with the weather - perfect clear day; views to the mountains in Washington state, to Victoria Island, over the harbour; back towards the Rockies wonderful. Not to be the same on a (typical?) Vancouver rainy day.... You need the clear weather! Not much beyond info plates at each window - not an interactive... More

The most beautiful view of Vancouver. We thoroughly enjoyed going up the elevator to the very top. The view is awesome. Downtown, the harbor all within your view. Awesome!

Magnificent view to be experienced encompassing the whole of Vancouver. We enjoyed a cup of tea as we rotated around. Don't pay for the observation deck and go straight to the restaurant for a drink and the view.

Not the tallest building in Vancouver, by any means, but has a great location near the port so you can see the mountains and the downtown area. Great way to spend an hour. Lots of information posted around the deck to get you oriented. We went early and the weather was not great. Probably much better in bright weather.

This may not be the tallest observation deck but it is a nice place to view the whole BC area at this level.

The lookout was the first place we went when we arrived. Entry came with our tour package so I do not know the cost. We enjoyed the lookout a lot. It has stunning views of the city. It is well placed to see everything. We were there in the late afternoon so we watched all the seaplanes coming in which... More
