A top attraction since 1968, Calgary Tower "offers brilliant views" of "the city, the mountains, and prairies beyond," says Frommer's. With this deal for $39, regularly $80, two can go on a Travelzoo-exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the tower and gain access to spots regularly closed to the public, like the carillon and the entrance to the historical CPR train station.
