“Don't miss the "Scenic Overlook"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Pay ahead at the main gate for car and your driver. Anyone who offers to "help" you expects a "tip," especially with photo assistance. The answer is "La'a Shokran" No thanks.

“Impressive but get rid of the vendors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

This area has lots of great things to see. The only problem is the vendors that constantly try to sell you all kinds of cheap trinkets. They do take away from the experience. It is better to ignore them. One piece of advise to visitors over 6 feet tall entering any of the pyramids. Be VERY careful or else you will go back to your hotel with many painful head bumps.

“Great to se the pyramids”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

It was really amazing to see the pyramids but I was just disappointed in the way I did it I hired a horse because I was informed that it's so far to walk between pyramids and the sphinx but this is not true and it cost me a lot of money doing it this way I would suggest if you are really interested in riding a horse or camel around the pyramid to hire from outside for under 300 Egyptian pound if you aren't that keen on it and want to save the dollars ignore everyone and buy your 60 ep ticket and just walk around yourself they are very close together and it's an easy walk

“GIZA PLATEAU IS GREAT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

It was an excellent experience. If you go earlier in the morning, there is better opportunity to enjoy the site without high pressure. I recommend paying the extra price to see the King's Chamber.
