I was super excited to go up the tower but once I got up, I felt super deflated. It really is nothing special. I actually think it's quite a hideous piece of architecture. Save that 40egp and get yourself a fresh juice instead!

One of the iconic tourist attraction of modern Cairo, this tower made of granite stands at 614 feet, taller than the Great Pyramid of Giza offering the visitors a 360 degree view of Cairo ,the land of thousand Minarets. This tower which has a top which looks like a lotus flower was designed by Naoum Shebib and was built between 1954 to 1961.There is a revolving restaurant and also an observation floor with telescopes to have a closer look at the city landmarks.

It is an observation deck with a very good view of Nile & whole city. From here you can see Pyramids as well.

I felt only the entry tickets were very costly, except that, even the restaurant was not that costly. I would have loved to go there in evening, watch sunset followed by a beautiful city view in night. However, we went in day, hot days, but we were lucky enough to see pyramids with little hazy view. Camera is a must & also carry few changes to see through binoculars.
