  • Although long overdue for some refurbishment the view from the very top is well worth a diversion or stop (if travelling between Canada and the USA). A fine but hazy morning presented spectacular view...  more »
  • If Word gets 1000 island in my view a ride on the Tower has to be done. It's cheap, don't take too long, but you can appreciate the beauty and porticolarit√† of this area seeing it from above. Spectacular sight in 360 degrees. Suggested course if weather conditions allow a good visibility. Is deployed on the border with the United States, above a souvenir. One of the ladies of the store upon request activates the elevator and takes over the Tower, by also by Cicero.

  • It is exactly what you pay for, a simple tower viewing experience. However this last third time I went there was an interpreter at the top that shared details regarding the area and cool features. He also helps share destinations that you should visit in the area and even beyond. That is why I rated this place to a four and a half destination. On the ground level they have a gift shop with really really ancient kids playground. People are friendly. Great location.
  • Its difficult to describe. 440 feet up. The entire building hasn't been renovated since it was built. But the atmosphere is incredible when you make your way to the top and can see for 100 miles in every direction. And during Fall when all the leaves have changed.
  • The view from the top is awesome. A staff member is up there as a guide. The lady was particularly helpful, she brought us binoculars. The souvenirs store has a lot to choose from - very nice stuff. The only drawback is the schedule: they close at 6:00 PM, when sun is still out. There must be some gorgeous views at sunset.
  • Shop staff was generally very friendly. The guide at the tower was very informative. Elevator is very old. There doesn't seem to be a good system for getting tourists through the elevator -- we were told just to wait ( I guess until we had more people to go up with, but ended up waiting quiet some time for more people to collect). The entire trip would probably take a good 1 hour to 1.5 hours from the very bottom to the very top (there's about 3 levels at the top -- 1 indoor, mid-level is open-air with bars, top level is completely open but with even more limited room.
  • Great view. Difficult to reach on bicycle.
