I always like these lookout points in cities, so I'm never going to complain about the price as long as it's reasonable (this one wasn't too horrible--they have a variety of discounts i.e. AAA; you can also go up as many times throughout the day as you want for your paid admission). View from the top is nice. Yeah, there... More

The elevator ride was fun as you look out over Vancouver as you go up and down. Once on top, you can truly see the entire city. It was cool to look over the water to North Vancouver. When we were there, there was a cycling competition going on in the Gastown district so we could see a go portion... More

Great activity to do. Can see heaps from the top. Suggestion would be having a narrative that could be listened to going around.

Nice way to spend 10 minutes if you want a 360 degree view from downtown Vancouver. But totally overpriced for the value of the experience.

Great vantage point to see the whole city. Very relaxed about doing time lapse photography. A bit pricey if you are not going to do any kind of photo or video shooting or to stay and enjoy the sunset over English Bay. Although unfortunately there are one or two new high rises that are disrupting the view of the Bay... More

This is not even close to Seattle Space Needle or Calgary tower but you can still see some good spots. Just went because i had an entertainment coupon (pay 1 get 1 free). Otherwise it is not worth to pay $16 a person to go upstairs.

The nice thing about your ticket is that if you came to see the lookout during the day, you could come back later and see the view at night too. You can get some good aerial pictures of the city from the tower. However, there are many buildings downtown that are tall than the tower, so you view is blocked... More

We went to the lookout early on a Sunday morning. The weather was a bit overcast so we didn't get a true picture of the city and the surrounding areas. Nevertheless, we saw lots of things that we wouldn't have noticed from the ground, thanks to the information panels located all around the tower. The staff were very friendly and... More

The Vancouver Lookout was included in our tour package - so we went along and did the tourist thing .... The views are fantastic and give anyone new to/visiting the city a great chance to find their bearings and see what the main points of interest are. This tourist experience cannot continue to rely on the fact that it offers... More
