Cairo Tower is worth a visit but don’t expect to be blown away by the views. We thought we might be able to see the pyramids which was wishful thinking!

It’s not the cheapest and we had to wait half an hour to go up, even though it wasn’t busy. If you have some feee time to fill then go, otherwise it’s probably worth missing.

Good luck in getting to the base. Try going to the top on a clear sunny non smoggy day. Take plenty of photos.
Toilet at top too.
Hope not too crowded at top otherwise difficult moving around . Amazing views from here.
Couldn't see pyramids from top. :(

There are good views across Cairo although it’s pretty hard to take photos because of the railings unlike other viewing platforms it’s literally just the view and that’s it. There where cafes and restaurants there but they where currently all closed.

The view at the top of the tower is beautiful, but there is nothing else on the tower, the restaurant was close and the cafeteria menu was very limited.

Although not too impressive in stature (size & height) compared to many other towers previously visited in various parts of the world, what's memorable about this tower is its "outdoor circular" deck for what I would describe as a "pretty satisfactory" 360-degree view of the city especially due to the location of the Tower on like a small island with the Nile River flowing around it (so its "two arms" to see pretty much right below when looking down from the deck); just on the downside though was not too much of a "far view" (the Cairo Citadel just barely visible and the Great Pyramids not visible at all) likely due to the generally "hazy atmosphere" around the city or the time of day which was like late afternoon. And yes, while on the deck, I was approached by a gentleman in an ancient pharaoh-like costume from whom I bought my "fortune sheet" or such (on some kind of parchment paper with also my name written in ancient Egyptian characters).

And nearby, actually located at like right across one of the two arms of the Nile from this tower (about a 25-minute walk by crossing the River on a nice bridge with "lion sculptures" at both ends) is the Egyptian Museum with really "plenty of" miscellaneous antiquity items including sizeable sculptures & decorative mummy coffins.

Great panoramic view. But it was expensive. Too expensive. Tourists pay more than locals. I didn't like that. I didn't come to take pictures, but it seemed that people with cameras were charged extra because of the camera.

There is a beautiful view from the tower anytime of the day when air is clear enough. Good destination for an evening cup of tea or coffee. It is the tallest structure in Egypt and North Africa.
There are different prices for foreigners and Egyptians.

- I wanted to visit Cairo s tower but at the entrance, they asked me 300 Egyptian pounds for my camera + the entrance fee!!!!! I refused and I stepped back!
- Are you kidding me? We do not pay such high prices in European monuments. And theoretically, Egypt is a cheaper country!
- The main idea in hotels/restaurants/taxis/monuments in Egypt is, how to rip off tourists!
- One and done!

If you would like to see Cairo on your palm, it is a right place to go.
The fee is different for locals and tourists.
We really enjoyed, however the day was not the best to go due to amount of sand and dust in the air , so we couldn’t have clear view. Otherwise, you can see the pyramids from the top.

Surprisingly difficult to find out prices to get up the tower, and onsite signage isn't much help. It's 200EGP to go up, and if you want to go to the cafe it's another 100EGP which can be used towards food/drink (Stella beer is 104EGP). Elevator is tiny (~7 people). Tiny staircase off the elevator to the circular observation deck, with a tiny 1-person washroom midway.
