I feel lucky to have toured Cairo with my family on our round the world trip in June 2016. El Giza, where you can see the Great Pyramids and the Shinx are a must. This awe-striking structure is so impressive and far more beautiful in person than you might imagine. I saw it for the first time as a work... More

The structure is awesome. Will leave you puzzled and mesmerized at the same time knowing the history of the place. Should Definitely one of the top in your bucket list. Something will make you sad though. Coz the place around the sphinx and the pyramids is quite dirty.

Its just beside the pyramids, or rather behind the pyramids. Worth walking all the way in that hot sun.

Went as part of a tour so had special access to go down close, meditate at the base and walk around the Sphinx. The area around the Sphinx is fenced off. It is well worth getting inside access both for energy and photographs. Make sure to find side angle which allows you to get Pyramids in background. Best results will... More

You visit the great sphinx inside the area of the pyramides, so you don't need an extra ticket. Entry fee is 80 EP.
