Highlight of our trip!

Must see in you're in Egypt! Great place for panoramic photos. It wasn't crowded when we were there, so we were able to capture lots of great shots.

I have to be honest, it was a sad experience, the place is good, but the people there wanting to sell you stuff, and keep walking by your side, really pain in your head. Don't ride a horse or a camel, as it would be overpriced. Sometimes a scam. Usually the camel is 50 Egyptian pounds for about an hour... More

Many people visit Cairo primarily to see the pyramids and sphinx, and that's for a good reason: they're amazing to see and explore in person. When you go, take your time and really savor and enjoy the experience, don't rush through it. You'll have to contend with a lot of vendors wanting you to buy their goods, have them take... More

The Pyramids of Giza are a spectacular site. Goes without saying that it is a must visit if you are in Cairo. Take a camel ride or horse driven carriage to see all the 9 pyramids and the Sphinx. Be prepared to be overwhelmed in a positive sense of course :) P.s. Do bargain with the horse/camel owners.

Overall we had a great experience! But I do recommend negotiating if wanting to ride a horse or a camel, they would ask for extra money for taking you around, going up, going down, taking pictures and tip! Yup.. Each thing separate! Because at the entrance it is so crowded you are not able to take a picture, full of... More

There are three pyramids here. We were able to go into the smallest one. Especially enjoyed the Cheops Boat house. They recently found a boat in an enclosure in the ground next to a pyramid while excavating for repairs. It is estimated to be 4000 years old and in housed in a building that has access to see each level... More

A wonder not to be missed! This plateau show the 3 Pyramids of Giza, a place beyond words! You can check the site and take pictures around. Try to go early morning or at sunset as the weather might be hot even during March. A small camel or horse ride is a best thing to enjoy. You might find some... More

Well this is a place beyond words and trying to understand the complexities is beyond most of us. The concern of being in a location that may put you in danger disappears once your there, media hype maybe? but can only say this place is a must.
