It is well worth climbing up the Cairo Tower in time for Sunset to admire the views over the city. The views from the Tower are in one of my Cairo travelogues.
Don't bother with the rip off restaurant at the top though!
This is Cairo`s tower,it was bulit in 1961.It stands in the middle of Cairo,over looking the city from 185 meters high.
WE bought the tickets at the gate.It is 32 egyptian pounds for non -Egyptians,kids under 6 are for free.Video camera`s must have a ticket as well :-S.
The tower has a revolving restaurnt which can be included to your ticket if you wish to dine there,the ticket will be 40 egyptian pounds( about 7.5 US dollars).
The best thing to me was to be able to see the Giza pyramids and the Sakara pyramids from the tower,it was an amazing view!!!!!!!!
Over180 meters high , 15X4 level = 60 story
it is the most outstanding attraction of modern Cairo. The first of the top two storeys has a rotating restaurant and cafeteria. Visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of Cairo from the observation platform.
Cairo Tower is a structure that stands on an island in the middle of the Nile and that offers a fantastic view on the city. The price to get to the top is higher for foreigners than Egyptains, about 20 Egyptain pounds, but is definitely worth it.
If you happen to be in the wonderful city of Cairo, don't miss the Cairo Tower, at El-Gezira area, an island on the river Nile. It's 187 m high (like 60 story building!), and 50 m higher than the pyramids at Giza plateau. The base was built from rosy finished Aswan granite, the same stones of obelisks and temples of the pharaos. There is a WONDERFUL, spectacular and unforgettable view from the top of the tower to entire city, it is especially lovely at dusk, when first light begin to appear (se my Cairo Home Page for that view). There is a telescope, rotating restaurant and a cafeteria. The waitors are dressed like ancient Egyptians. It is the best place to have entire Cairo on your palm.
It's a huge modern creation overloking the city. A real must for any lover of panoramas and aerial photography. When the day is good you will get a glimose of virtually every corner of the Nile Delta, including the famous Pyramids of Giza. Come by night and you will see all the lights of Cairo below you. For those who like to drink a cup of coffee from time to time: the restaurant at the top is excellent.
8.Visit the Cairo-Tower, about 180 meters high, that is the most outstanding attraction of modern Cairo. The first of the top two storeys has a rotating cafe-restaurant. You can enjoy a panoramic view of Cairo from there.
Go on top of Cairo Tower 'Borg El Gezirah'.

At 187 meters high, the Borg al Qahira or Cairo tower gives a great view over downtown Cairo. It costs 50 Egyptian lbs to go up there.
A good activity and great photo opportunity. Costs around £3 to £4 each depending on the exchange rate. Beware of the hawkers who you can't even escape from when up the tower.
If you really want to have a view of the city the best place to be is at the top of Cairo tower. Theres a moving restaurant where you can enjoy a good meal while looking down on the city.
We never got up the tower, but you can apparently - the views would be very impressive, especially as it is quite a bit taller than most buildings there.
A 185m tower built in 1961, it pierces the sky and dominates the skyline along the Nile. There's a jerky revolving restaurant at the top and also a cheaper cafeteria.
