Not a place I would return too, the hagglers are overwhelming. You cannot take two steps without being asked to purchase something. I was so disappointed how the Egyptian government has not correctly managed this site. No market just wandering hordes of people trying to...More

Pictures do not do justice to this incredible site. Do yourself a favour and use a local knowledgeable guide. You will learn so much about this wondrous place. Take the camel ride - touristy but makes for keepsake pictures.

The one spot that you can see all three in their wonder. And actually see how the second pyramid "looks" taller than the Great Pyramid, but isn't. This is where you get your "jump" and "step" photos at. Plus it is also the spot to...More

Pyramids and the Sphinx are impressive. However the areas around the sites are just disgusting, rubbish everywhere. Annoying vendors everywhere even in the site after the gate. We could not even have a min of peace to take a picture without any vendor come to...More
