I enjoyed my visit to the tower, the landscape there is really beautiful. When I visited the tower, it took from us an hour while waiting in the lane, it was crowded but the view worth it.

I love Cairo Tower. You go up to the 62nd Floor and from there you get to see the full views of Cairo in peace. A must see if you are going to Cairo

The view from the tower is amazing but chose a clear day and you might even see the pyramids in the distance. Cairo is often hazy so chose a good day. We went early one Friday morning and it was quite busy but by mid morning, crowds had died down and the Cairo haze was lifting.

There was so much people there, almost imposible to get in. Had to wait for two hours to go into. Best time to watch is before sunset, so you could see all the city in daylight and then watch the beautiful sunset, but as it becomes dark there is nothing to see

The architecture is neat, but not much was told to us here. In the middle of the city it is a tourist area with locals around like a market.

You have an amazing view from the tower. We went there at night and I think that is the best time to see Cairo from above. We tried to get a table in the revolving restaurant but it was fully booked so if you want to have dinner there, call in advance and make a reservation.

nothing as fascinating to spend money to see the tower. Its just the usual tower you would expect to see. I guess after visiting burj khalifa there was actually no point in visiting this place. Love the restaurant up there though.

You can get panoramic view of Cairo, so the best time to be there is by sunset, so you can take good pictures, then stay for a while and see the night view.

The best thing about it is you can see every building in Cairo from it. Magical city lights at night, don't go very early in the morning cause there might be some mist which may block the visuals especially if you are aiming for zoom photography, so best time will be at noon. Loved the SkyGarden Cafe in the tower,... More
