A second-tier attraction, do this only after the main attractions, on leftover time. The views over the river are beautiful, and you should go an hour before sunset so that you can see the city lights once the sun goes down. The queues for the lift can be long on weekends (Fridays). The restaurant is okay for coffee and snacks, rather limited selection but friendly enough staff.

Save your time and money and avoid this folly, it looks great from a distance but when you get close it is surrounded by overloaded bins and rubbish strewn all over the road, there is graffiti on all the walls and is very intimidating! With the amount of smog and general pollution when we went up the view wasn't that good either! Avoid if possible or at least until the general area gets cleaned up and made more inviting for tourists!

If you have free time in cairo after visiting the main sightseeing,visiting cairo tower is recommended. The best time is before sunset around 4 or 4:30pm so you can see cairo at the day time and sunset and also at night.but try To choose a clear day.

There was a good view of the city and the food was good but not great. I would not go there again but if you have not been there yet then I would check it out.
