I cannot imagine anyone reading this needs to be told how awe-inspiring the Pyramids of Giza are. It would be unthinkable to visit Cairo and not see the Pyramids? My advice would be that you need to prepare yourself for an experience that you may not have encountered before. There are so many 'guides' and 'touts' in the Pyramids complex... More

This is a must see if you are spending any time in Egypt! Granted it is in the desert and the main pyramid is the only one that you can actually go into. Be warned that if you pay the extra money to enter it is really tight! Our guide said "if anyone has back or knee problems don't go".... More

I have wanted to go here since I was a little girl. I am fairly well travelled and have visited places where I thought - tick. been there done it. But NOT here. WOW They are amazing, huge and exciting. Having just done a cruise up the Nile visiting the tombs and temples this tied it up for me, I... More

Good... But nothing as brilliant as expected! Even the Sphinx was a bit of a disappointment! But definitely worth going once! Think the tourism industry tries to fleece the tourists excessively and that makes it even worse...

The great pyramides in Giza is a Must for a Cairo visitor. They must be seen at least once. From a distance, they look as if their walls were even, but with a closer look, you see the step-like form; not as clearly as in Sakkara, though. From a distance, the stones of the pyramids look rather small, but while... More

The political unrest has caused fewer tourists to go to Egypt so the aggressiveness of the people around the Pyramids trying to make money of you is gobsmacking. During our stay, they attempted to lift members of our group onto horses and camels against their will. Take photo here, take photo there, take photo with my horse or camel and... More

It is a really interesting site to see and watch the size of these pyramids and all the monuments surrounding it but the problem is that there is too much bad odors due to horse and camel sh**!

I loved seeing the pyramids. For an extra ticket, you get to go inside the pyramid. It's a long, steep climb to the inner chamber, and you have to stoop down for some of the climb. So not necessarily for people who have knee issues. Totally worth the extra ticket price! You are not allowed to take your camera inside.

These are the ancient monuments to see around this area. You really need the time and patience to visit the Pyramids by going inside and trying learn the history and the way it was built.
