Went to Calgary Tower many many years ago and decided to revisit it for nostagic reasons. It's not the same. There are taller buildings within the vicinity that partially block the view. There is really not much in the downtown area that deserves an aerial...More

The audio guide is excellent and really brings the view to life. There were no queues when we went and it wasn't very busy at the top which probably added to our enjoyment.

It's definitely one of the attractions you have to visit when visiting Calgary. It's very centrally located, easily accessible, you don't have to climb (haha) and all town is at your sight. Price is also very good, so for sure it's worth your 30-45 min.

We went at the end of the day. We had about an hour at the top that was adequate time to enjoy the view and take pictures. There really isn't much up there. The history info on the walls was very interesting and worth a... More

The closest parking to us is the Palliser parkade, which is attached to our building complex. Entrance to the parkade is off 10th avenue.
