We had nice views of the city and especially liked the photos and explanations of the buildings pictured. The ticket was for the entire day allowing you to return to see the city at night.

I went to the Vancouver Lookout Tower and I found it very interesting. The view is nice (but you really have to go there when the weather is perfect! For example, when I went, there were clouds in front of some mountains in the North; so my view was a little bit hidden) Read all the little text although they... More

With the weather in Vancouver, don't wait for "perfect" weather to go up to the Lookout. It is a fabulous view in any case, and there are really good descriptive panels all around the circle that added a lot of information. It's not cheap, but you can go up both day and night for the same price.

I was a little reluctant to doing the lookout at first, but once you go, its a different thing. The ride up on the elevator is enthralling, and gives you a little sneak peak of what is to come. I regret going so late though, I went when the sun was down, but would have liked to have been there... More

We got 1 free entry with our rental car agreement and I'm glad we did because I would have been annoyed to pay for 2 adults for this. Once you are up at the top the views are all very impressive but once you've walked round it once that's all there is to it really. If you were taking a... More

We came here for sunset and got some pretty good pictures. There are some good views of Vancouver for sure. I think the view from here on a clear day in the winter is the best.

Thanks to wonderful guide Jennifer (clear and loud voice, interesting information, humorous remarks, ability to answer the tourists' questions fluently and to the point) we had a marvellous experience in the afternoon AND returned at sunset to get a spectacular view over Vancouver by night.

We went to the lookout at the beginning of September. The experience started well as the lady selling the tickets was incredibly friendly and chatty. The elevator to take you up to the Lookout gives you a good view of what you can expect as it's on the side of the building and made of glass on the outer side.... More

The tower of Vancouver is worth seeing. She allows us to see the city under all her angles. We visited him(it) in the middle of, a the afternoon and at the end of evening and in both cases, we were charmed. The only drawback is the bellowing of the guides of the organized groups.
