This is a place to know in Vancouver. You can see almost the entire city! I spend many hours taking many pictures. I really liked it!

Since this attraction was not free, we chose to make it our destination for Brunch on Sunday as part of the Vancouver city tour. We got there 20 minutes before they closed down the restaurant, and we were given as much time as possible to eat and view. We practically had the whole place to ourselves, it was wonderful!! The...

We visited in the afternoon on Canada Day. The view was fantastic and the 30 minute free guided tour was excellent and informative. We went back at 10.00pm for the fireworks. Again, a great experience, even without the noise.

Views over the city were nice, but not worth the money. When looking out the window, the expectation is that the description on the ledge would match the view, which it didn't always, causing some confusion. Maybe the restaurant was better but it was closed when we visited.

Picking the perfect Vancouver day for weather may have helped tremendously, but we could not have enjoyed our trip to the top of the Lookout more. Spectacular views in all direction made for a great afternoon. Accidentally, we took a leisurely 360 degree walk around, reading the informative and well written photos with captions that gave great explanations of the... More

Great experience. Nice overview of the city and the mountains. Impressive during the day and also at night. Get your hand stamped and enjoy seeing the area in a different light.

If I visit a city I try to visit as many tourist attractions as time will allow. It cost 15.75 Canadian Dollars for this which was not cheap but it is a tourist attraction so you have to pay or not do. We enjoyed it - you catch a lift up to the observation deck for great views all over... More

Wonderful views at the top of the city in whichever direction you looked. Knowledgeable guides. I did knock it down a star as I found it quite expensive.
