Make sure that you choose a good guide so your trip will not be ruined. Ours was very disappointing, we paid a lot but the quality was super bad. His english was bad obviously not an Egyptologist.

Coming to Cairo and not visiting this is a definite no no. Simply amazing experience. We took the horses up to the plateau and the caretakers allowed us to do a full speed gallop which made you feel like Laurence of Arabia. A caution is to research the costs for the horse rides around the plateau. I am still not... More

You never really realise the sheer size of these pyramids until you're up close and personal to one. Our tour guide, Ashref, who was organised through our hotel at the Sofitel Cairo,was an absolute champion, he was a superstar amongst all the people at every stop, and he definitely, 100% made the trip for us. Doing the Giza plateau is... More

Recently visited the pyramids of Giza again but this time with friends who were visiting us. As always, the pyramids evoke awe from just the sheer size of them! The Solar Boat museum is very interesting and well worth a visit while on the plateau. It is best to take an animal or a horse-drawn cart to see the whole... More

Loved it. Never seen as many people at an attraction. It was the weekend. My guide lead the horse and gave me lots of information and advice hired horse and guide from outside so missed lining up etc.

Breathtakingly beautiful! We were able to go inside of the largest pyramid and climb to the very top. It was an experience we will never forget. It is a long way up but you are able to stop for a quick rest. It's amazing. You have to see it!

Some may be put off by the proximity of the Giza Plateau and pyramids to the city, but we found it easy to look past that and were very humbled by the experience. It's a must-do / bucket-list kind of place so don't hesitate - just go!

The Panorama lookout provides a great view of the three pyramids but a camel ride through the desert provides the best view. You can see all six pyramids with nothing but the desert in the foreground. The camel will drop you off at the Sphinx after about 30 mins.

We were stay at the Le Meridian Hotel and our view from our window was the pyramids. They are amazing and the atmosphere was electric. Our group felt that the surrounding pyramids should have a wall around them to protect them a little better otherwise down the track there will not be any pyramids left!
