“Spectacular views Horrible food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

For those planning to dine at the Cairo tower restaurant I would strongly advise against it, the food was tasteless and flavorless, not to mention it was expensive, the views are amazing and spectacular, I would advise that whoever would like to go to go straight up to the tower and skip the restaurant, go watch sunset or at night and enjoy the lights of the beautiful city of Cairo.

We went up just before the sun set so we got to witness the beautiful sun setting over the city, I'd highly recommend going :)

“Beautiful views on a claer day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Visit on a clear day and you will see some breath-taking views of Cairo. You can even see the pyramids and the citadel from there. Bring your camera and you will take some amazing pictures!

“CAIRO TOWER”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

The Cairo Tower is a free-standing concrete tower located in Cairo, Egypt. At 187 m (614 ft), it has been the tallest structure in Egypt and North Africa for 50 years. It was the tallest structure in Africa for 10 years, until 1971 when it was surpassed by Hillbrow Tower in South Africa.
it stands in the Zamalek district on Gezira Island in the River Nile, close to Downtown Cairo.

There's a plenty of restaurants up there with an amazing view but you pay for the view not the food!!!

20 pounds for Egyptian - 70 pounds for non Egyptian

Directions: 5 min driving from Tahrir Square , taxi will cost not more than 5 pounds

“Worth a visit, but takes a long time to get up”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

I visited this tower in the evening. The night view of Cairo is wonderful. It however takes quite some time to get up when there are long queues.
