It was nice view for a short trip to Vancouver. I definitely want to come back here during the night since I know it is way nicer than it is during the day because of the lights and all =) And for those who are students, bring your student ID with you -- they give discounted rates to students!

My daughter said her favorite part was the elevator since the door is on the outside of the building for part of the way up. It was nice to see places around the city that we have been to and places we had planned to go to that day. I didn't know ahead of time that the was a food... More

Friendly helpful staff, and the reader cards around the entire circuit will take you quite a while to read them all. A few are a bit dated (eg referring to the Olympics in future tense) or contain slight grammatical or typographic errors, but are , on the whole, informative and provide a good historical and physical background to the city....

I have visited this location twice this month and each time it has been spectacular. The first time I was alone, the second time I went with my sister but used a groupon that allowed us to come up a number of times throughout the day that allowed us to see Vancouver at day, at sunset, and at night.

I liked it here. A nice view of the city and mountains. I probably wouldn't go back but it was worth going once.

We took the lift to the top of the Lookout and were greeted by the friendly staff and immediately offered a free tour. This attraction was definitely worthwhile to get a look at stunning Vancouver. It was a fine day so you could see to the US. Probably best to do this on a fine day just for the view.

We felt we had to do this attraction. Entrance staff very welcoming. Got into the lift and then realised that it travelled up the tower on the outside and had a glass bottomed floor. For two people nervous of heights this was a very nerve racking experience. On arrival at the lookout and after prising our white knuckled grip off... More

Went up twice on new year's eve at the opening time of 10am and around 4pm for the sunset . Weather in the morning was terrible and the visibility wasn't that great. The late afternoon visit was much better with amazing views of this great city. The female Brazilian guide that walked around the observation deck and explained the views... More

Friendly, helpful staff! First day in the city, and we wanted a perspective of sites and distances. It was very helpful. As we exited the elevator there were tour guides waiting to offer us a tour--canned content, plus very helpful in answering our questions about possible destinations. After the tour, as we circumnavigated the tower on our own, the tour... More
