The Montreal Tower has a unique shape and is simply awesome. It is situated close to the former summer Olympic stadium. The lift was undergoing some repairs on the day that my family visited. But had taken the lift to the top, a few years...More

What a great view! Enjoyed going up to the observatory! Low cost as well :) The only downfall was that it seems that some updates and renovations could be done, otherwise it was great!

Olympic sites are worth the visit, and the tower affords great views of the area in addition to being an architectural wonder in its own right.

Went up the funicular to the observation deck of Montréal Tower. It is much higher than it looks and the views, especially with the leaf colors was amazing! It was about $25 a person but 110% worth it!

You will get the full view. But I will skip it if you’re not in the area. The museum is close so their isn’t much to do.

The views from the tower were decent; not great, but mainly due to clouds & fog. On a sunny day, probably would have been much better.

Excellent views of Montreal - large windows to view out of - not scary - compares to CN Tower Toronto but not glass floor - excellent service from all - very welcoming - interesting lift to top - on an incline

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