The tower has a good interactive audio tour that you can line up your site line with the small tour audio/visual screen and click on different landmarks or directions to learn about the history and interesting facts. We would have liked to experience the restaurant but it is closed from 2-5, we were there at 3. Great way to learn... More

I rook my granddaughters here for brunch. The ride up is free if you are eating in the restaurant. The food was good and prices were a little high. It's always a great way to see Calgary and the mountains.

My bf, being new to Calgary, was so excited to take me to the tower and the restaurant as one of our first dates. Yes, the view and the glass bottom floor are cool - but the restaurant sucks really bad, and we will never go there again. Our frumpy and greasy-haired server was rude from the very start. Being...

So i went with my family for lunch to celebrate my birthday and it was amazing the elevator is very very quick and the top is so worth it there is a glass walking area which over looks the road and is a perfect picture spot i would say.

Having previously lived in Calgary, am very familiar with this attraction. Went in July of 2016, construction going on, skyscrapers blocking views that years ago was not blocked. Very expensive, for view now, can get great views from Scotsman's Hill, other areas of Calgary that you do not have to pay.

For 18$ we got on the Calgary Tower with a very nice view over Downtown, Stampede and the Rockies. Overpriced.

I live in Ontario and while visiting Calgary, my granddaughter and I went to the Calgary Tower. We only went to the 5th floor observation level (our time was limited) but what we did see was pretty cool. It is very similar to the Skylon Tower in Niagara Falls, Ontario but shorter than the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario. We... More

If you are going to visit, for the best bang for your money go eat dinner & save the $18.00 for viewing. It will cost you around $60-100 for a good meal for 2 people. The views on a clear day are amazing of the mountains & the city

We went to the revolving restaurant for a special anniversary dinner! The food was fantastic, very well prepared and presented. There was a wide variety of different foods featured on the menu. The view of Calgary was very beautiful and ever changing. Well worth the cost of dinner!
