How could anyone possibly visit Egypt without seeing the pyramids? The great pyramid of Keops is phenomenal, and the "Solar Boat" found at the site is quite amazing. My only suggestion: don't take a tour - it's expensive and you can bring your guide book to learn the fact; and probably take a cab for less than the tour price.

The pyramids really are amazing. HOWEVER the hassle is something else, many many people surround them trying to flog you stuff. Such a shame!

The number one must see in Egypt. Find out more about the history and legend of the great pyramid before seeing it for yourself.

The pyramids are a must-see while you are in Cairo. Wear clothes that cover you and protect your skin because there is no shade and the sun makes your skin sizzle even with a strong sunscreen.

We visited the main pyramid on horse/camel from a distance. It was definitely the best way to enjoy the pyramid. It is possible to get close to the pyramid although you are not supposed to touch it. We went on a Friday, so although there were few foreign tourists, there were lots of Egyptians. There is a museum on one side with a reconstructed funerary boat, but we didn't go into this. It is possible to enter the great pyramid, which years ago i did pay to go, but became claustrophobic and couldn't go in. The cost of entering the pyramid is expensive at E£100 per person and this is why I gave 4* and not 5*. We went to Dahshur pyramids and the rest of my party entered the red pyramid, where there is no extra entrance fee for the pyramid itself. The pyramid itself is the largest of the three at Giza and was absolutely amazing. It was our favorite place in Egypt.
