It's there so you might just as well do it - but don't hold your breath.
I have traveled to Egypt more than 10 times and every time I go, I remind myself to visit the top of the Cairo Tower. And I never do. So this last time, I made a point of going - and I am glad I did. Because now I never have to do that again.
It is not the greatest tourist attraction I have been to, and given the fact that Cairo boasts so many other great sightseeing opportunities, the Cairo Tower does not need to be near the top of the list of 'must-see' places in the city.
By all means, if you have time, take the ride up the tower. the view is lovely and you get a great overview of the city. Avoid the mid day hours and visit preferably in the late afternoon toward 'golden hour' light when the smog may have burned off and you'll catch a glimpse of the pyramids on the Giza plateau.
