We had a camel ride included as part of our tour package. We just expected to sit on one, but we had a short ride around the site and we got some great pictures. It was pretty special. The camel drover was pretty aggressive asking for a bigger tip, which took a little away from the experience, but we do... More

Wonderful experience…but must be extremely careful with the men leading the camels. Even though you have already fully paid for the ride, they will do anything to get money from you. They will offer to take pictures, and then won't give it back to you unless you pay them. Of course, I threatened to yell…and was extremely firm and got... More

We visited the pyramids with our guide. He recommended the camel ride around the pyramids so all our party went on camels. We paid the initial cost for the Carmel ride! Our man who led the camel was a man middle aged with a baseball cap on. Very chatty and he took our camcorder and camera so he could take... More

I was lost without Peter's guidance of what tour to pick inside the Pyramids. With his contacts I was able to enjoy a guided horse ride about the 3 Pyramids and Sphinx then finish the tour with a camel ride!

Riding a Camel to the backside of the Pyramids and getting a million pictures was a blast! The Camel Jockey was also an incredible photographer. We all had a wonderful time and it was hilarious to watch each other.

What can compare to riding on a camel around the desert surrounding the freakin PYRAMIDS?? How Else would you see them? Unbelievable. Probably paid too much - two hours was $25 - probably could have bargained, but we had it arranged and didn't have to haggle, etc. Definitely AWESOME! Camels were definitely NOT for the faint of heart - very... More
