Cairo Tower

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by parkerc on April 21, 2004

This tower is a good way to see Cairo from above. We went at twilight and it was interesting to watch the city lights come on and the sun go down. When up top, you may or may not see the pyramids, depending on the light and the amount of smog on that day. We could just about see an outline, with the air quality being reasonable that day.

The cost was 50 EGP, which included a drink and a slice of cake in the rotating restaurant. We tried to get a ticket without the cake and drink, but were told that this ticket didn’t allow us to the top of the tower!!! There is an extra cost for a video camera, but cameras are free. You can buy an all-inclusive meal ticket for the rotating restaurant if you so wish, but it did seem rather tacky when we were having our cake.
