The tower make for spectacular photos and I would argue that the best ones were taken on the ground looking up at the magnificent architecture. The views of course are fabulous. Montreal is such a flat city (excluding the obvious Mont Royale) that it is...More

Cool tower. The observation deck is a good vantage point from which to view the city. It is famous for being the world’s tallest leaning tower, albeit constructed that way. We rode the funicular (cable car) to the top. This people-made leaning tower measures 165...More

Very fun for our family. We enjoyed the ride up and seeing the whole city. Fun interactive activities at the top and the requisite gift shop. Spectacular views, can't be beat.

It is the is the tallest inclined tower in the world with a 45-degree angle! I love to look down at the city. You can start look around on the glass funicular and continue at the Tower Observatory because it has 360º panorama!!! Of course...More

The elevator gives a feeling of a cable car. It's the best place to see Montreal from. It takes 2 min to go up and every 10 minutes you get back ride. Also tickets can be bought along with planetarium and botanical Garden.

The journey to the top is as interesting as the great view from the top. As you ride up you see Montreal open up as you get higher. For us it was especially interesting since we were at Place Ville Marie the previous day, which...More

From peel to Viau was about 20 minutes, so I'd guess about the same from one stop further.
