“Why is this even listed as a sight?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Why would anyone want to visit this? I travel over this bridge daily, it is just a concrete structure JAMMED FULL of cars and with very little pavement. Not to mention recent violent clashes that have occurred here. Yes the Nile is beautiful but view it from a Felucca or the Sofitel in Zamalek. If you MUST see a bridge then Qasr Al Nil is much nicer.

“Happy trip”

Enjoy this bridge in early morning or late night, you can across Cairo easily without any traffic jam, also it is good to watch Nile River, sunrise and sunset too. Wedding couples can take shoots for memories as well.

“If you're in a good air conditioned vehicle and not driving you'll love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Cairo's ongoing engineering project for quite a number of decades. It is continuously being renovated and expanded so that it can support the ever growing Cairo traffic. It will take you from one side of the city to another right above the most crowded parts of the city making it easy to see quite a number of distinct parts of Cairo.

“strolling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Apart from the engineering bit 6th October bridge is a very nice place to have a romantic walk in the evening. There are still people fishing fro the bridge at night with their custom made rods as well as home made ones.
