Behind such Crystal brightness some bad behavior
Jun 2017 • Business
I went to Asfour's factory on their request to repair a cnc machine, I learned that they and the machine agent in Egypt tried to repair it before me and they failed, knowing this, I really wanted to help and repair the machine without any exploitation.
After 15 days of huge effort, I made the machine work perfectly, I presented an invoice of 444 US$ (no one asked me in advance about any fees until I finished repairing the machine ).
After months of phone calls I was surprised that the company had reduced my fees by themselves only !! to 277 US$ without asking me !!!
It is a clear stealing of my fees !!
After three and a half months of procrastination, I received 263 US$ !!
That company violated workers laws in a dishonor way using a mean behavior.
So, behind that sparklings were some mean behaviors.

Surely visit this place to see different Crystal showpieces on display. You can also purchase here. You will need minimum of two hours to see all the products on display. Carry enough Egyptian pounds or Credit cards for your purchase here. Request them for proper packing to avoid breakage in flight.

Could be better
This showroom has an amazing set if crystals but the items lack the brightness of the colors, you can spot the poor quality.
It's good if you need a transparent piece but not colored ones.

Sectacular
Jul 2011 • Couples
This was our 2nd visit to the Asfour Crystal factory, and once again were amazed at the spectacular showroom with the hundreds of lights and crystals.
The factory and showroom are a short distance north of the city centre in an industrial area. If it is your first visit, it would be best to arrange a taxi from your hotel who will wait for you – most hotels can arrange this at a reasonable price. As we had been to the factory before, we decided to make use of the Metro as it is a very cheap way to get there and back. Once we got off the train we had to make use of one of the Tok-tok vehicles to get us the short distance to the factory – an amusing experience in its self.
On entering the factory showroom, one is amazed at the size and sheer brilliance of the lights and crystal, and the ever present sales staff ready to help and answer questions, without being pushy. There is also a small display of the manufacturing process and interesting facts on the company. Besides all the chandeliers (both modern and old style, and small to very very large) there is a large selection of crystal ornaments in different sizes and crystal jewellery, all of which were well priced thus making excellent gifts. If you are going to buy a light, the choice is immense with something for every taste – we left with two to compliment the one we already have. The prices of the chandeliers / lights are very good and a tax certificate is given with all purchases enabling you to claim back the sales tax paid when you leave Egypt.
The fact that very few tourists visit the factory is a shame as it is truly a gem in Cairo, even if you don’t buy anything.

Absolutely fantastic!
We went to Cairo in November of 2008. Saw the reviews for this place on Tripadvisor. My wife happens to absolutely love crystal, so we decided to go check it out. Its a bit of a cab ride to get there (cost us ~30 LE to get there from downtown Cairo), but its well worth it.

The showroom is absolutely fantastic, my wife's eyes lit up when we stepped into the place. We must have spent at least 2 and a half hours in there. We bought a ton of jewelry for all the girls in our family, and we actually took a bit of a gamble and bought a crystal chandelier (there are more chandeliers here than i've ever seen in my life). It took them a week to pack it so it could be checked in to go on our plane back (we had to get them to drive it to our hotel), and getting our tax refund was a HUGE hassle (isn't everything in Cairo, though). Anyhow, we now have a nice beautiful chandelier... now we just need a house to put it in.

Manificent, must see to buy your Crystal
The Asfour Crystal Factory Show Room is excellent and had some of the best crystal works you will ever see, the cost is unbelievably cheap compared to other major Crystal suppliers. Do not buy from anywhere else but the factory, you will get it at 1/3 rd the price you will pay on the streets. Take the time to get to this one just hire a taxi and get them to drop you off. It's in the north of Cairo about 20 minutes by car.

Here is the web site where you can see the best Crystal designs. We spent hours just looking and buying everything we could.
