A must see. You are in Cairo – you therefore go to see the pyramids. My husband and I decided to go on our first night in Cairo to see the lightshow! Yes the documentary was a bit ‘kitchy’ but the way they had lit up the pyramids at night was quite spectacular. It was our first sight of the... More

Since being a little girl in NZ I was fascinated to see the pyramids of Keop. I was not disappointed and loved the fact it was not crowded with tourists. However this is disappointing for the locals. I encourage everybody world wide to visit Egypt. It is a unique and wonderful part of the world.

First, get there early before it becomes too hot and the crowds arrive. Second, go with an Egyptian guide to tell you what you are seeing and to keep the army of guys trying to sell you rubbish. These guys have years of experience in the hussle and are persistent. The Pryamid itself is very impressive and worth seeing. Also... More

You've seen them in photos, TV and magazines all your life, but seeing them up close is a whole other "WoW"! Stand in front of one of the stones at the base and you feel dwarfed, not to mention overwhelmed trying to wrap your head around the fact that these pyramids were built without anything but human labor!

If you haven't been to Cairo/Giza before, or haven't seen the Great Pyramids of Giza; you must go. I felt very safe there and was thrilled to finally experience this amazing piece of world history. The only down side is the aggressive vendors trying to sell junk. Don't engage them, promise them you will see them later or have any... More

See it, get it done, don't bother going inside, do haggle for a camel ride as nothing starts at a fair price. Be polite to the vendors, they are trying to make a living just like you.

You know that feeling when you want to cry from haopines ..Finaly after years of planing i was on the place that I always wanted to be.. In 4 days in Cairo we visited the pyramids twice. The first time we arrived late and we just made photos on the hills riding horses and camels. Thanks to our guide who... More

Finally got to see this fascinating ancient artifice. If you decide to go inside, be prepared for a steep climb in a very small space!

very hot we did it in summer so i recommend doing it cooler weather as you are on horse back. get the right guide to take you and if you book itin summer you have to go before 4pm as they close. you need about 2hrs inside to really get around everywhere.
