The world's tallest inclined tower serves up spectacular views of Montreal and surroundings areas. In just two minutes, its glassed-in cable car will whisk you 175 metres up to the Observatory. From this unique vantage point high in the Montreal sky, you can see up to 80 kilometres away in every direction: the mountains, the St. Lawrence River, Donwntown Montreal, its skyscapers and the Mount Royal. The Souvenirs of 1976 exhibit will take you back in time to (re)live the Montreal Olympic adventure-from the project's tentative beginnings to today, when the flame still burns.

The tower gives good views from all around Montreal. We visited on a clear day and saw for miles. It was a quick visit as the view is all there is to see. Combined with Montreal passport this makes it a worth seeing tourist spot.

Don't recommend this. It is massively overpriced for what it is. Go to le Chalet du Mont-Royal instead, you get better views of the city from there for nothing. The funicular overlooks the wrong side of the tower for the city, and when you get...More

The tower is an attraction by itself because of it's unique shape and we enjoyed the ride to the observation deck in the glass elevator. The views were awesome as we went up and were able to see almost the entire city from there with...More

Fun ride up and great view. Quick smooth ride to top. And I generally don't like heights but felt safe.

It's an observation tower, pretty self explanatory. It does offer a pretty good view and if you have a multi-attraction pass it's a good way to spend a half hour. If you are purchasing tickets a la carte, it's tremendously overpriced.

We visit here last month. It was nice but unfortunately, the tower is under construction so access was limited.

The funicular ride up was fun. You can get a great view of the city even from just riding this to the top/bottom. At the top of the tower, you can get a great view of the city from 3 different sides of the tower,...More

Nice 360 degree views of Montreal and vicinity. There is some information about what you can see from the tower but more in depth info would be great. Nice to visit for a little rest from walking.

You gotta go here just to say you went to the top. 2 min ride to get to the top in a glass funicular.

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