Head up Cairo Tower to gain impressive views of the city below. A landmark of the capital and the country since its completion in 1961, the latticed concrete communications tower was the tallest structure on the continent for a decade, standing at a height of 187 m (614 ft). Though its record-setting days are over, the tower still represents one of the best places in town from which to admire the architecture and sprawl of the city, with its observation deck offering extensive views across the urban area.

  • Really can see 360 degree views of Cairo - but since not much of a skyline need not spend too much time on top. When we went there was literally no line or waiting except for the elevator to come...

  • Stunningly beautiful view of Cairo, definitely worth experiencing. Only negatives are long wait time (visited a couple days after the last day of Eid so people still on holiday) and also had to pay for masks to enter, yet when we reached the top of the tower there wasn’t a mask in sight, none of the workers were wearing one and it wasn’t enforced so obviously just a scam to make more money which was very annoying.
  • The tower gives you a splendid view of Cairo from the top of the tower and has 62 floors. I think it’s better to go over there at night in order to see the Nile and the heavy traffic in the streets. Highly recommended the tickets cost 200 EGP
