The observatory is no big deal but the Biodome is really worth visiting. The environment they created for the animals is just fascinating and feels so real.
The biodome is amazing for adults and children. Having the animals flying around you and walking through recreated ecosystems simply can't be described and must be experienced. The tower offers amazing views of the city. Also buying the tickets here saved us time (the line at the biodome was over a half hour long) and money. Just be advised you need to take the voucher to the tower first to redeem.
The bonus ticket to the Biodome made this a fantastic deal! Basically, you get the Biodome for free. Just make sure to pick up your tickets at the Observatory box office and not at the other attractions.
The tower tour was great - little confusing when I bought the tickets when it says optional Biodome
The Biodome and Observatory were great touristy attractions to make this trip more enjoyable. Surprisingly, the Biodome seemed pretty extensive and more interesting than I imagined. The views from the leaning tower are impressive. The complex seems like something out of the future but predicted in the past. They are both worth checking out.
Tower Observatory was a nice way to get a panoramic view of the city, we were fortunate to go on a clear day. The Biodome is definitely worth the trip, a very well organized and interesting trip through the ecosystem and some history too.
Excellent Tour. Wonderful for the family. View from the tower is terrific, history of Olympics games always interesting and the biodome was great. Only minor downside was that they recommend the planetarium for 7yrs+
The views are amazing. The biodome was very interesting. ,great for childen young or old.
You definitely have to go to the observatory but the guided tour is not that interesting. You can buy tickets for the observatory tower and wonder around the Olympic pool. If you buy the guided tour you also gain access to see the Olympic park that is a very big empty space that is not very interesting. Outside the tower is the biodome, it’s not included in the tour but you can buy tickets and see animals and vegetation of 3 different climates.
A fairly good day. Biodome was OK good for kids I suppose and the tower had fairly good views of the city.
Was NOT happy with Viator, when I booked the Montreal Tower and Biodome Tour I upgraded and added the Botanical Pkg. Upon arrival they said Viator was NOT an authorized dealer to sell the Botanical and I had to speak to numerous supervisors to get it resolved...given that i had PAID for this pkg and it was on my reciept confirmation! well my demands were honored after 45min debate and it was a great experience for our family. Kids (7,10) enjoyed Biodome which was an Aquarium center, they enjoyed the elevator ride up over the city at the tower and the Botanical Garden was a true treat and pleasure to see and visit.
It was tickets only, no transportation. While we didn't have to wait on a long line to purchase tickets, we did have to pay an additional 12 for parking!. The Biodome was a complete disappointment. Was basically a few feet of each zone, containing a few small animals... more like a very small children's zoo. Would have liked it to be a little more adult friendly -- perhaps detailing how the zones exist on their own, etc...
It gives you a good view of the city but it's a bit short. You should lump it with a tour to the Botanical Garden, Olympic Stadium and the Biodome next door.
This tour started off being simply fantastic until the guide stopped speaking in the middle of his sentence. He was requested to leave in order to accommodate another tour. He was very apologetic and explained that he was carrying out directives. About 10 of us were stalled in the observatory waiting for the tour guide's replacement. After 25 minutes of 'no show' we exited to Biodome Tour which was simply breathtaking. Four stars for Biodme Tour; One star for Tower.....
