“Beautiful View of Mountains, Interesting Info on Calgary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

Had a wonderful time at the Calgary Tower. The interactive audio device that they provide was really great. The view is pretty spectacular at the top of the observation tower. Mountains are amazing to see in the distance. Lots of neat history of Calgary and buildings in the city. Price was reasonable. Would recommend to anyone going to Calgary!

“Eat at the restaurant save the cost of entrance.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2015 NEW

The staff greeted us, and called up to get us into the restaurant for lunch. If you eat at the restaurant you save the entrance to the tower. The restaurant is expensive but best burger ever. The restaurant turns while you eat. The view of the rockies is beautiful. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the City.

“Splendid views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

We bought our tickets through Viator which was half the price of the tickets purchased on the day. The visit to the 360 degrees observation deck at the start of our holiday helped us to identify all of the key sites and to learn some of the history of their development. The Audio guide helped us to identify most of the key places of interest and gave an indication of the distance of the different areas from the tower. I would recommend this to all visitors.

“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2015 NEW

Make sure you get the audio guide to go with the ticket as the information on that is very informative.
We enjoyed the good clear views and were able to spot a few extra places to visit on the ground.
