Sure it is the tallest building in the Cairo skyline but there is not much after that. I was really hoping the restaurant on top would be good. Went there for my anniversary and was quite disappointed. A VERY expensive meal (compared to better restaurants in Cairo) and a meal that I could have bought for less than a quarter... More

Fantastic views from the top. There is an escalator, so don;t worry about steps. The view takes in the whole of cairo and out to Giza.

After visiting the Egyptian museum of antiquities we took a short 20 minute walk to the Cairo tower. Short lines no crowds and in 5 minutes we stood on the look out. A great way to get look down on Cairo and figure out just where everything is. We had a nice lunch at the restaurant with excellent coffee and... More

Due to the sad lack of tourists, there wasn't any queue to get to the observation deck. We went after dark, so the whole city was lit up. The scenes were breath-taking, no matter which way you looked. Defnitely worth the money!

This is a great place to have an overview for Cairo. You will be able to see some places like the pyramids, the citadel, the famous Tahrir square, and a wider view of the Nile river. Just try to choose a day when the visibility is clear. There is a cafe with wide glass vision of Cairo and a revolving... More
