This is a great place to get an overview of the city and if you ask one of the people there to point out America from there. You can also get a discount with the ticket for use on the hop on hop off bus! Great views, great photo place. Get the map of Vancouver and work out you plan... More

The view is incredible but I felt the price a little steep for an elevator ride. Went to the Sunday brunch instead at the Top of Vancouver revolving restaurant. The price is a little steep but the service was good and the food was pretty good and I figured I was saving $15 bucks for the elevator ride to the... More

Great 360 view of Vancouver and the surrounding area with lots of history and facts about the buildings etc. Be sure to bring your camera to snap some great pics. That being said it is a little pricey at $20 a person just for a view. Be sure to go during the day because at night all the buildings blend... More

Haven't been up here in decades....the view is spectacular, but it's expensive too....look for a coupon in the Entertainment book or in brochures. There's not a lot of room at the top, but there's plenty of informational signs pointing out many features of Vancouver. Definitely worth a visit.

We found the Lookout while wondering round the shopping center below. It was a small fee to go up and you can come back later in the day to see Sunset. Well the views were wonderful we had arrived in Vancouver during a heat wave , so had unspoilt views as far as mountains in Washington State. The tour round... More

Well...it is what it is...a place for a great view and it does have that. They'll have plaques up around that will give you info on some of the things you are seeing. They do have a small gift shop. The bad thing it's the price. $16.25 per person. This was part of a package deal we had. Everyone in... More

A great view of the city but needs interactive information system to make it worth the $17. Otherwise when it is busy it is hard to read the plaques

This place is a good one to see the city from the skies. Take a moment to appreciate the details that the city offers.
