The Cairo Tower has two restaurants. One restaurant has a rotating seating area that allows the guest to see many views of Cairo as the seating area continuously turn in a circle. There is also a look out balcony that runs around the top of the entire tower. The costs to enter was 70 Egyptian Pounds, which I thought was... More

It is a nice view at the top and the pyramids can be seen as well as pretty much all of Cairo, but it's a bit steep in price for just that I'm afraid.

The tower offers a fantastic 360 panaramitic view over all of Cairo. On a clear day it is possible to see the pyramids at Giza. The tower aso has a cafe & restaurant, both of which aso offer great views, without the wind!

The view was fantastic but the elevator was terrifying. They tried to fit far too many people on because the lines were getting long.

After a one hour river boat ride, walk through the park, we walked to the Cairo Tower. Beautiful setting and well maintained it was breathtaking at the top. Well organised. Be aware if you have mobility issues that the elevator does not go to the viewing area. The last floor you need to walk up a circular stair well. I... More

I really enjoyed going up to the top of the tower. The cost for foreigners is 70LE. Do go at least an hour before you want to be at the top. We just made it just before the sun was gone, and thankfully were able to watch the sunset. It is an amazing way to see the busy cairo from... More
