This is a must see attraction when in Cairo. Still, puzzled by how (well like most people). Worth to visit inside (if you are in good shape it is a steep climb). Bring you own guide to help keeping away the beggars. Incredible that the city does not clean up the road to Giza the road to the pyramids looks... More

Excellent monument to visit. We visited the Giza Pyramid complex which includes 3 huge pyramids. These are the biggest pyramid in Egypt. Was really exciting to know the history attached with Egyptian pyramids.

No trip to Cairo would be complete without a visit to the Gizeh Plateau and the great pyramids. Absolutely amazing and breathtaking. If you can, try to arrange your visit to include the sunset. You won't regret it.

This is a must see for anyone spending time in Cairo. It is easy to get to and does not need to take all day.

Fady El Mallach, our excellent guide, took us to visit the pyramids in a chronological order which we thought was a terrific idea starting with the oldest ( Step/ Djoser ) at Sakkara which is actually a mastaba, then we peeped at the Black pyramid which was the first attempt at building a pyramid then we were close to the...

We rode 4 wheelers and camels in the Plateau and it was a great time with a great view of Giza and the pyramids.

Such a shame that something so beautiful and great has to be cheapened by the hassle. We were with an Egyptian who bought out tickets. We went to get in and the ticket takers said we didn't pay enough to get in. WHAT?? Didn't get to go down to the Sphinx; the gate was locked. Afraid to climb around the... More

If you are in good physical shape and are not claustrophobic be brave and pay to enter the Great Pyramid and do the climb into the Queens Chamber. Go for a Camel ride while there and do not miss the Solar Boat Museum behind the Great Pyramid. Then head down to the Great Sphinx that will take your breath away.

Don't be afraid, just go for the camel rides. The views are incredible and the camels really are gentle.
