“Pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Foggy day when we went but still pretty good view, imagine it would be even more amazing on a beautiful day! Neat to see the city from way up high! Def worth the price of 10$/per person!

“So worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Paid a total of 20 bux for the gf and myself. We went once in the morning and watched the morning fog and the flow of the St. Lawerence flow out to see. We got informed that we could come back in the evening and watch the sunset. We took full advantage and came back in the evening and also observed the St. Lawerence flowing back the opposite way. Amazing view watching the ice chunks flowing. Best part there was only the two of us present the both times!

“Great view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

I enjoyed going to the top of the building and being able to see the city from way up high. You could do a 360 degree walk around the building to see everything. It was cool to be able to point out our hotel from way up there. It's too bad our trip was during rainy days, but the view was still amazing. Afterwards, we went downstairs to the Tim Hortons on the main level.

“Nice views of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Great panoramic view of the city, and some well done exhibits to help you learn about it. Tickets are good all day and I came back for sunset pics after visiting the nearby Parliament. In addition to a view of how far the city extends north of the main areas, you'll have a great view of the river, the Frontenac, the Citadelle and the Parliament. If you are walking up to this building from the main part of town, it's the tall, non-descript office tower beyond and to the right of Parliament - I assumed it was the hotel beyond and to the left of Parliament, which has a circular, revolving restaurant.

“Magnificent views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Like Toronto or Calgary the tower views are great, a full 360 degree panorama of the City and it's surrounds. You get a feel for the might of the St. Lawrence and the strategic placement of the City and you will be surprised at how green the City is, it is well worth the $10 entrance fee.
