This was a little to expensive just to go up for a couple of minutes, but the view was so great that I didn't feel sorry at all. There is a nice breeze up there even in the hottest time of the day; you can see Nile, desert, entire Cairo and even the Pyramids! You need to pay a little... More

You shouldn't leave cairo without visiting it... the best time is around 5 pm as u can enjoy early dinner at the revolving restaurant and watch sunset. You can see two different cairos between day and night. The revised menu is better than the old one...avoid weekends as taking the lift is a nightmare

The Cairo tower is fantastic and great for the price. Lift takes you to the top and it's an amazing sight. There is a revolving restaurant and the prices are reasonable. We took the kids and they loved it. There is also a non revolving restaurant where you can get ice creams and drinks and just sit above Cairo enjoying... More

This place has an amazing 360 degrees of Cairo and you can even sport the Pyramids. Famous for locals to come and hang out to see the "Sun Disappear". I call it that since you don't see the sun set, but disappears into the dusty, polluted clouds of Cairo. It cost 70 pounds and an extra 5 for the telescope... More

Wonderful view and an unforgettable experience, only disadvantage is the waiting in lines and stairs and crowd. Nevertheless it was worth it and would definitely do it again.

I visited the Cairo tower on mid July 2016 during weekend and had a dinner in the Revolving Restaurant in the 61 floor. The tickets was 20 EGP for Egyptians and 70 EGP for Non-Egyptians. Long queue will last for almost 45 mins till the elevator to reach the top deck, but u can skip it by paying 100 EGP... More
