It is so sad that this world class heritage site has been so polluted by its people. The same people that want tourism seem to be incredibly uninformed about how badly they have treated their incredible tourist attractions. It is so filthy and full of garbage on the way into the pyramids that you can not believe that you actually... More

Yes folks, the great pyramid of Chops is very large. Touring the whole Ghiza plateau, including the 3 great pyramids is pretty much on everybody's things to do list; and it should be. This is the perfect time to go. With all the strife, tourism is down 90%, so you have the major sites all to yourself, sorta.

There is an area where all 3 pyramids and the small ones can be taken all at once. Be sure to take the camel ride for the photo. See previous comments regarding Giza.

The Pyramid of Cheops, the most beautiful among the 3 and the highest, visible even from the city if the weather conditions allow it. When I visited it the Egyptian crisis was up to striking the country and the entire area was deserted, perhaps I will have counted no more than 20 tourists near the pyramid which is really rare...

If you are in Cairo, you HAVE to visit the pyramids. Be careful of people trying to rip you off. We made the mistake of going with a worker at the hotel that said he had a friend that can arrange a cheaper tour for us (BIG mistake). We ended up paying more than we would with a regular tour... More

While there, do ride a camel and get your photo taken. Go anytime but summer. The solar boat museum is worth a look.

Fantastic sight to see and learn more about. Also, if desiring to ride a camel in the vicinity or to have picture taken on camel with pyramid as background; be certain you have arrived at a firm price with the camel attendant. Otherwise you may still be there riding the camel like "O'l Charley on the streets of Boston. .... More
