We really enjoyed our time on top of the tower. It was empty which made it very quiet and calming. It was a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Cairo. We have beautiful pics of Cairo. We saw the pyramids in the distance.

Nicest features of Cairo Cairo Tower and it was built in 1961 and is one of the most important tourist attractions in tourist omnipotent in Egypt, especially the restaurant where the rotation wraps your floor in the tower in a circular motion to see the whole Cairo from the top of the tower

We went at night, and felt the entrance fee was too expensive. They dropped us off at the retsaurant level, and we sat there not knowing that you can only sit there if you are ordering (which we refused to as besides not being hungry found it too expensive, plus to pay tax+service charge). discovered that there is another floor to go to to stand and see the views.

At night theres not much to see- espcially as we had a Nile view room so could see the boats and lights at night from our hotel room. you need a ticket to use the telescope, or'tip' the guard.

Not surehow it will be in the day to see the sights, but for us - Boring, and definitely miss-able.

Was expecting something a little more spectacular (although not sure what other than a view of Cairo from some 80m up). Watch which day you pick, as it was slightly hazy so the distance we could see wasnt that far. Perhaps a weekend would be better with less traffic therefore less polution obscuring the views. The lift up only takes 8, so if its busy, you might have to wait to get up and down, although we were lucky in that respect. Restaurant was just ok, and watch for the 30LE per head covercharge. Overall though, worth the visit to say you have been.
