If you have nothing better to do with your time maybe take a look at the Calgary Tower. Little information on how the tower was built, not a lot of information about the city. View of the mountains is ok but take the trip out to the Rockies for a better view. I wouldn't recommend this unless you had time... More

The views from the top are great but it's a lot of money for not a lot. It might be worth booking in to eat at the restaurant. After 20 mins of looking at the view we were bored and headed down.

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Calgary Tower. 360 degree views of Downtown and surrounding area. Good views of Stampede activities from the top of the Tower. If you're adventurous, step out onto the glass floor!

The tower is a fun place to visit but you need to keep your expectations realistic. The pro's are that you get great views of the mountains and 360 degree view of Calgary. There is also a glass floor that you can stand on if you like. The cons are that it only takes about 30-60 minutes to see everything... More

Fantastic views of the city, but everything else is a long way away; be sure to visit on a clear day. We had free tickets, so not sure if it would have been worth paying the full $18 fee.

View is stunning. You can see for miles on a clear day. Our visit was for the Panorama restaurant. Food was great. Server was nice. Informed us as we didn't want to order main item at same time as appetizers we had 2hrs to dine. Not impressed by this. We'd spent over $200. and had no intention of leaving in... More

If you're visiting, you gotta do this. Not the tallest or grandest in the world, but a unique experience worth doing just to say you did it.
