    Not to Miss
    We took the horse drawn carriage rather than the camel. Good decision, as the carriage has roof shade, the camel does not. It’s very hot, so don’t consider walking even though the road looks inviting. The carriage driver gave us lots of information, so another guide is not needed. Spend time at vista to see it all. We went in late morning but expect early morning or late afternoon would be better.

    My Guide called it , the Panaromic Views
    This is the area where you can see several pyramids in one location. My guide told me to do various poses here to capture the pyramids in the background. Watch out for the other people behind you who are also trying to make beautiful photos here!

    One of the reasons you come to Egypt
    The Giza Plateau is where the three famous pyramids built in ancient Egypt are. The Great Pyramid is the only one of the Seven Ancient Wonders that can still be admired today. Besides the three pyramids, of Khufu, or Cheops, or the Great Pyramid, of Khafra, or Chephren, and of Menkaura or Mykerinos, son of Khafra and his successor to the throne, there are the Great Sphinx, other smaller pyramids, mastabes, funerary temples, ruins of settlements. The pyramids of Giza are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. We visited the place as part of a larger tour through Egypt. Our guide took care of the access and gave us the necessary information.

    The Area of the Pyramids
    This is the name of the plot of land that supports the Pyramids and Sphinx of Giza. It's a broad area so with lots of space to accommodate the crowds you will surely see. Lots of good places to get the perfect photos. And lots of merchants who want to see you things, and they are aggressive.

    Iconic monuments
    We visited in June and it was HOT at around 45 degrees at 11:00. There is no shade so consider bringing an umbrella and lots of fluids. We purchased entry tickets for Menkaure and happy we did as not very expensive and one gets the idea of how the inside of the pyramids looks. Recommend buying tickets online at the official Egypt Monuments website and visit early in the morning. It does not cool down yet by closing time. Also recommend the Sphinx entry gate as it is fairly quiet. If, like us, you are not interested in guides, drinks, curios, etc. it is unfortunately recommended not to interact with the vendors at all. Once you glance in their direction or say anything they will not let you go and this can ruin the experience. Also do not show your ticket to anyone except when entering the complex or a pyramid. Found these ‘check points’ to be used in various different scams.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Giza Plateau is a good spot for photos of the pyramids. We ate lunch and had a grand view of the pyramids in the distance. After seeing photos in books and magazines since I was a child, it was fantastic to finally be able to see them in person.

The view from here is really quite spectacular and there are few people so you can have a moment to breathe
Great place to get some unobtrusived photos of the pyramids and really take in how amazing they are. .

Here you will find the Great Pyramids of Khafre, Khufu and Menkaure. These are the last of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient Words. We marvelled at the sight that was in front of us.

The Giza plateau is like looking at a book out of ancient history. The fact that the pyramids are still standing is a wonder. I would recommend visiting early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the basking hot sun and also the crowds. Be sure to visit with a guide who can explain the historical significance of various buildings to you.

As for so many people, it is the realisation of a childhood dream to be here and wander around and see the pyramids... And it is just wonderful from the plateau, to get away from the crowds and feel some space and peace with the views... Just loved it.
