Our visit to Cairo was not going to be complete without a visit to this famous place of history and we werent disappointed. The qhole place was brimming with people. Many were taking pictures (apparently tourists like us), some where picnicking and some were just milling about walking leisurely. I felt like I was standing inside a book of history... More

As many of us are keenly aware, Tahrir Square is where the 2011 revolution broke out and led to a new political landscape in Egypt. I spoke to many locals about their experiences, and as you'd expect, there are mixed opinions about the outcome. Generally, many appreciated the need for change, but the resulting instability has seriously crippled much-needed tourism... More

Busy Square with lots of restraunts / cafe units. Watch the traffic but well worth a visit to see Egypt at its self and not a tourist trap.

Tahrir Square is located in central Cairo, close to the Nile River. It is hemmed in by large buildings like the Egyptian Museum, the American University of Cairo, and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The 6 October Bridge is also nearby so chances are that you will pass this Square many times while driving to Cairo’s far flung attractions. A multi-laned traffic... More

Nothing much to see really. Just drive by. It is a historic landmark for the country since the revolution of 2011 after all... My hotel room was overviewing the square. Amazing how noisy and busy it is 24 hours a day.

I would like to appreciate Ms Dalia for this unforgettable experience today. She showed me best art of Egyptian museum, Liberation square history, Cairo downtown attractions, Nile boat excursion and a wonderful lunch (Koshry). I have learned a lot about this country, which satisfied my expectations, but the excellence of its people as well. Thanks a lot Ms Dalia, keep... More

This place became very famous after the troubles that happened in Cairo,it is crowded at any time of the day, feels like all Cairo citizens are sitting in this square holding their mobiles typing and playing.
