Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
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.

    I went to the Pyramids of Giza and it was truly a wonderful trip and a special experience. I recommend it to everyone And you should go and visit them on this site because their treatment is really very nice.

    The Great pyramid(Pyramid of Khufu), built around 2550BC by Pharoah Khufu, is the biggest of all pyramids in Giza and was also the first one built in this complex. It's right at the entrance behind the ticket office.
    Great pyramid is one of the seven wonders of the world.

    I really had to see this and take some photos. But the entrance to the site and the staging area for photos are jammed with tons of tourists creating traffic jams and it was all too much. So get ready. It was worth the trouble, once in a lifetime. And get the history, way more ancient than I had thought.

    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.

    LOVED IT! Great first stop in Egypt! Have sunglasses, and maybe a hat or scarf. There are no shelters for shade like other sites. Glad we had a guide and driver. Our guide, Yasser Samir, was great at explaining the significant facts and historical and cultural context. That, paired with the reality of being there, made the pyramids extra special. It can be a lot of walking without a driver, especially if you want to see other pyramids on site. Camel rides are available for purchase and there are wandering merchants selling hats, scarves, postcards, stamps, fans, etc. Sometimes the sales techniques can get a bit aggressive and Yasser helped reinforce our messages as needed, which we appreciated. There is a special section for climbing on the Great pyramid, too. An additional ticket can be purchased to go inside.

    This area of Dahshur is surely the earliest true pyramids. Both the Bent Pyramid and the Red Pyramid are not to be missed. It gives you the peaceful feeling with much less people than the circus in Giza!

    Seeing the statue of Rameses II was impressive. Hearing the stories of how and swhen it was discovered, how they moved it, the stories about Rameses... I loved it.

    Part of the Giza complex of pyramids and the Great Sphinx. Come with a guide who can explain to you the history and engineering and place these incredible structures within the scope of ancient Egypt.

    We ( a party of five) booked a two-day trip to Fayoum with Travitell Egypt, at the capable hands of Mr. Ashraf Kamal Sadek.
    We were picked up from our home in Obur (a north-eastern suburb of Cairo) and driven by Sameh, a quiet and reliable driver, in his small van to our hotel in Tunis Village, Fayoum (Hotel Pyramids), which was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced.
    After checking in and a small snack, we were picked by another driver (Mukhtar) in his sturdy, air-conditioned Toyota Landcruiser all-wheel SUV for a wonderful afternoon trip to the pottery shops in Tunis Village, followed by a desert safari trip that took us to the waterfalls of Wadi El Rayan, connecting the First, Second, and Third Lakes. We visited the Round Mountain (Gabel El Mudawar), and even hiked up to one of its peaks. We then did some sand boarding down the slopes of impressive dunes, and ended the trip at the banks of the Magic Lake where we admired the sun set enjoying tea prepared by Mukhtar together with fresh fruits. We then had a wonderful dinner of grilled lamb and chicken, oriental rice, and French fries. After some star gazing, we returned to our hotel around 10:30pm.
    Next morning, we were picked up at the hotel at 8:30 am for a morning trip dedicated to the "Valley of the Whales" (Wadi El Hitan), a fascinating UNESCO -designated World Herritage Site about 75 minutes drive from our hotel, deep in the Western Desert. We spent about two hours there, admiring the amazing pre-historic whale fossils and surrounding desert landscape. The dome-shaped museum on the site is a jewel. Visitors watch an introductory 15-minute film that explains the importance of the site, and sets the scene for the ensuing circular tour of impressive original exhibits.
    Mukhtar brought us back safely to the hotel by about 1:15 pm. After a quick freshening-up, we vacated our rooms. Sameh was already waiting for us with his van for a three-hour safe drive back to Cairo/Obur.
    All in all, we had a wonderful, compact, and very enjoyable trip with all arrangements exceeding our expectations and falling in place like clock-work. Throughout our trip Ashraf was contacting us to ensure that everything was in order.

    As a small family, we had a wonderful experience that I'd like to share. Although the VIP family package price wasn't clearly stated, it turned out to be affordable and definitely worth booking. However, one downside was the lack of clarity regarding the prices for different packages, which must be improved.

    If you're looking to buy souvenirs, I would recommend purchasing them from the village shop. It's better to do so there rather than waiting until you reach the airport, as the prices tend to be much higher. The village shop offers a variety of options and you can find unique items to take home as mementos of your visit.

    This place is especially great for kids. They will have a fantastic time exploring and learning about ancient Egyptian history. The tour guided by the river guide was both informative and enthusiastic, making the experience even more engaging and enjoyable.

    In addition to the main attractions, there are several museums within the Pharaonic Village. While you can visit most of them, I would suggest that only two of them are truly worth exploring. These particular museums offer captivating exhibits and provide a deeper insight into Egypt's ancient civilization.

    I went to Egypt last month in April (2024) to celebrate my 30th birthday. And after visiting the pyramids of Giza we make a little stop and we visited Golden Bird Bazaar it is the most sweetest jewelry store ever! We were greeted so nicely and felt the warmth of all the people working here! They offered us something to drink and let us browse around at our own pace! It felt so nice and relaxing because when I tell you the people were so kind! Islam who is the owner of the store helped me and my mom look around we purchased so many things because the quality of the jewelry was so good and they have so many beautiful items. We loved it so much we went back a second time. If you ever visit Egypt and want to buy gold like I did I really recommend that you stop and visit them you wont regret it! Thank you so much for the best experience ever me and my family really loved it and you will be seeing us soon I would hope much love from Los Angeles!

    Your tour bus should take you up the hill above the Giza Plateau site so that you are poised above the pyramid site. This is the best place to take photos. There will be a lot of guys with camels who want to sell you rides. You can say yes or no.

    I've been waiting to visit the Art Centre since the pandemic began and wasn't disappointed. The staff are all informative and kind--and the artists are uninformatively passionate. I was hugely impressed by their dedication to quality and traditional weaving. For instance, all the dyes used in the tapestries and weavings are *grown* and harvested from plants, such as indigo, at the Centre.

    Egypt, unfortunately, is awash with cheap imported crafts. Don't miss your chance to support creative, local artists from Cairo !

    The park is as great as before, except that it has no decent restaurants or cafes. You will have to pay more inside the park for the paid rides. Safety is well maintained over there. It is very hard to reach from downtown and add a time margin for traffic, but it was worth all the effort. I really enjoyed my time.

    Not a fancy shopping center, but a practical one. If you are staying in a Giza hotel, you may needs some odds and ends for travel, then you might want to go here as it is convenient and gets you off the street.
