Great place for all your photos for memory. Good place for gifts and camel rides. You will end up taking most photos here.

The Giza Plateau is the site of the Fourth Dynasty Giza Necropolis. When we plan a trip to Egypt this is where we all want to be at some point. The Plateau includes the Great Pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure, the Sphinx, ancient cemeteries and a workers' village. From various angles you can take your creative photos and each perspective offers different experience. From the plateau one can also stare at the city - amazingly close.

Is the well known place for camel ride and for taking photos on the back side of Pyramid. It is a place which smells a little bit funny but is ok. It is highly recommended to visit as early as possible in the day to avoid crowds and ofcourse skip all the markets there.

We were lucky enough to visit twice..riding the horse drawn carriage and then on our second visit the camel. Both were truly incredible experiences. The photo opportunities from the top of the plateau are excellent. The drivers are skilled at seeking a large tip so know exactly how much you plan to tip and stick to it. Do not tip the driver a second time for the animal...horse or camel...as they will probably not see the benefit. If you are compelled take an apple in your bag and ask to feed the animal as a tip...and photo opportunity.

Once you tour the individual pyramids, the lookout from above is not to be missed as to truly appreciate the Giza Plateau.

Every human on Earth wants to see the pyramids, once in a lifetime. The Great Pyramids of Giza keep attracting visitors since Antiquity but nowadays the entire experience is below expectations. Forget about the pictures of the pyramids posted on the travel agencies sites! If you believe that the pyramids are in the middle of the dessert, you'll be disappointed. They are very close to a busy neighborhood. From the Great Pyramid of Cheops you can still hear the traffic noise and the car horns from the boulevard. Once you enter the archaeologic site, you'll be instantly surrounded by souvenir vendors and camel ride dealers, which are very stubborn and disturbing. I visited the site with Emo Tour and my guide kept them away from me. He also negotiated for me the fee of a camel ride. If you want to ride a camel, you have to pay a fee to the camel owner and another fee to the guy that will take you around with the camel. "The 30 minutes camel ride" may last for about 10 minutes. All in all, the pyramids are really majestic but the hassle of the camel ride dealers ruin the vibe.

Would you even consider going to Egypt and not visit the Giza plateau, including the Great Pyramid, it's 2 smaller brothers and the Great Sphinx? Not a chance. These are magnificent. 4000 years old. Huge. Marvels of construction. This desert plateau is located on the west bank of the Nile River, while the town is on the east bank. Be prepared to bend over as you walk into the Grand Gallery of the Great Pyramid, it's ramp is less than 4 feet high and very hot.

Monument is amazing and up to standards but the visit is unfortunately ruined due to hasslers and a poor organisation of the site.

Standing in front of Cheops for the first time, or entering a pyramid, or have a guide tell you about the history, development, layout of the pyramids is fantastic. If you are moderately interested, I'd recommend a couple of days with a good guide so that you get more of a feel for the history and development of the pyramids. I'd probably give the inside a miss and head over to the Red Pyramid which makes you feel more like an explorer.

It is impressive to see the pyramids almost in the center of Giza, a fantastic place that incite our imagination to think how many thousands of years ago they managed to do something so incredible and great, without technology.
