Had an amazing time visiting the pyramids- on the day we visited I was the only tourist which was slightly daunting as everyone was hissing, asking for photos and following me. Luckily my boyfriend is Egyptian and could handle the situation BUT I would not advice females to visit on their own or without a tour guild. It was very... More

This is the biggest pyramid of them all. Just ignore the vendors because all they have is junk to sell. You must go around to the west side for the best photo shots. Here it is less crowded and you should have a photo on a camel. This is worth the entire trip. You can also climb a few few... More

It's still a marvel to see this man-made structure in all it's might. Just watch out for vendors who offer some souvenirs for sale, if you are interested, do buy them as it is their only source of livelihood.

If you have travelled all the way to Egypt the you cannot miss visiting Keyops Pyramid and go inside you will regret not doing it... I am! Don't talk to the people selling items unless you want to purchase something and then always ask your guide to get it for you, they can on occasion get it cheaper. Do not... More
