Edit: this is the now third time I have tried to submit this review. It has remained "pending" for a couple of months. Why is a story of sexual harassment by a tour guide not making it through censors at TripAdvisor? Since the second time...More

The camels we took out for the day were obviously abused. One had a limp and could barely make it down a hill but they still forced it to carry us. My camel had blood dripping down its neck because its harness was too tight....More

The camel ride around the pyramids is not worth the exorbitant fee you pay. The guides have a tendency to convince you to go for it in order to earn their cut.
