Free tools like MetaGeek's Inssider will show you that information from a laptop's perspective but I think it only shows APs and not client devices.

The Fluke Optiview wireless analyzer shows everything but is pretty expensive.
The Fluke Air Check is much less expensive so you might want to check it out and maybe get a demo model to see if it will do all you want.
