    My visit to the Pyramids of Giza with 3 kids and Wife
    It is always amazing to see the great pyramids one of the ancient wonders of the world. I was amazed by the beauty of the pyramids and the historical importance of it. Getting there early in the morning is the best because you will be able to beat the heat and enjoy the site without being exhausted or tired. Ticket are not expensive. It is recommended to go with a tour guide because they make things easier. No one was there to bother me with stuff they wanted me to buy. The camels didn't look in good shape so I would avoid camel ride. At most 1-2 hours maximum is all you need to spend there. Overall if you like historical sites you will enjoy the pyramids.

    Mesmerizing place
    I believe one must visit this mesmerizing place once in a lifetime. We took the uber and bought entrance tickets. After entering we hired horse cart which requires some bargains. Ours was 200 pounds Egyptian. After coming out you can easily get taxi.

    Viewing the Pyramids live for the first time is an experience we will never forget.
    This site was amazing rising out of the Sahara sands outside of Cairo and standing alone for the world to witness. The Egyptians of that time period were mathematical geniuses and engineers beyond repute. Even with slave labor, their ability of move and assemble stone blocks of the size and weight you see here is unbelievable. The largest and most famous of all the pyramids, the Great Pyramid at Giza, was built by Snefru's son, Khufu, known also as Cheops. The middle pyramid was built for Khafre, the 4th king. The southernmost and last pyramid to be built was that of Menkaure, the 5th king of the 4th dynasty. The Great Sphinx, also located there a picture to behold in one's memory. The excitement that was created viewing one of the great wonders of the ancient world is something that we will never forget. Added to all of this, was a camel ride across the desert for about a half hour that added a different perspective of seeing the pyramids from a different angle.

    The wonder of the Ancient World
    It was amazing to be in that place since I am amazed by Egyptian civilization! I was amazed by the size of the pyramids. The Giza complex is made up of six pyramids and the Great Sphinx. The temperature was so high, it was 41 so not comfortable for sightseeing. I felt sorry for the camels being used as a mean of transportation, I would never pay to ride a camel! Still pyramid are a must see :)

    Lovely day with our kids
    Spectacular day at the pyramids. Felt really sorry for the over worked horses and camels. Pity they couldn't be better looked after. The Egyptians inside can be so off putting.. you get hounded every second of your trip.. we got cornered into paying a fortune for a camel ride that we didn't want. He has us on it for a photo and then we were on the move. It was a bit intimidating and frustrating as we didn't agree with how the animals were treated. A downside to an incredible wonder of the world site.

    A lifetime of regret if you don’t do this!
    Of all the places and things in the world we wanted to see…the Pyramids of Giza were always at the top of the list and are now one of our most favourite travel memories. The history, the presence, the structures….just amazing and breath taking. We had a great tour guide who pre warned us about staff at the sites who will coerce you to let them take you to “never before seen sights” or who offer to take photos of you…all for an (unexpected) fee. This was was VERY handy information for inexperienced travellers. Note: There are ALWAYS other tourists who will take photos if you ask them. Do the camel ride, speak to the locals, enjoy the experience with a full water bottle. If you have glasses secure them when on a camel ride, pockets with zips are G-d’s gift to your travel wardrobe!

    Must see
    Fantastic half day tour to The Giza Plato we saw 3 big Pyramids and the Sphinx as well. For the Khufu Pyramid we visited in it and it was 1 time experience. It was hard to go upwards through the narrow corridors and crowded and hot weather situations but it was perfect to see inside the Pyramids. Morning times will be better to take this tour. Afternoons are crowded and very hot weather. The Plato is beautiful, must see, I feel like I m in a fairytale. ❤️

    Magnificent
    the pyramids them selves are an easy 5 star. but people there are making the experience less exciting and a little bit annoying since everybody is trying to sell you services and stuff with crazy prices... I mean it s must visit location but be prepared for some annoyance ...

    Experience of a lifetime
    Of course, I don’t have to tell that this is a trip worth it. It’s likely the prime reason for your trip to Cairo if you are a tourist. I’d advise on how to get here. The govt has taken cash option out in ticket purchase process, so you can buy your ticket via a card at the counter. If you are going in summer months, and have low tolerance for heat, taking a tour is better, as the 3 main pyramids and the Sphinx are at a decent distance. The tour agency can drive you around. If you are going in winter months or don’t mind strolling around, enjoy it yourself. If you decide to do it solo, avoid seeking help from people around, as the area is historically famous for scammers. If you wish to take camel rides, negotiate heavily. Avoid shopping in the area unless that’s your only option for shopping souvenirs.

    Spectacular
    We were staying in Hurghada and bought this tour via Get your guide. Its an early start, our alarm woke us at 3.10am and we were picked up at 3.30am and taken to the airport to fly to Cairo. We went to the pyramids and you really have to see them if you are in Eygpt, they are spectacular and something I will never forget. Eygpt is a total mess and the desert is full of rubbish and the horses and camals are not treated well. Its a shame they don't take better care of their best assets. The pyramids themselves are amazing. Don't let anyone help you or take your photo you aren't prepared to tip. It's a constant hassel which was made better by our guide to an extent but like the Eygpt experience people only do things to help you for money, so don't get talking or allow someone to take your phone, they just want money.

Such stunning architecture! I was absolutely amazed how great they are! Over 3000 years old and still shining. I have visited over 50 countries and many historical places, but this is something else.
Be aware of people approaching you. They will come in groups and if you give them money they will call others to come right way just like other places in cairo.
You can also have horseback riding or camel back riding, there are several activities and you can spend a few hours. There are also some good restaurants in there.

Firstly the site is kept very tidy and clean, it is an experience that will last forever. You can pay extra to go into the pyramid itself but be careful and it can be quite small and tight.

Please be very careful of the workers and street sellers they are extremely pushy and DO NOT give your phone to anyone to take a photo for you because they start walking off with it and will not give it back until you pay them.

The experience would be so much better if you were allowed to enjoy it without the staff and street sellers hassling you.

Last year my family & I were so excited to see the Giza Pyramids whilst we were on holiday in Egypt. I feel I need to post on here because I want to warn others of the cruel side of Egypt. we were shocked and horrified to see the walls outside the pyramids lined with rows of very skinny horses, ponies and donkeys and they all looked so terrible sad. Some looked like they were dead. Just lying there, no food, no water on 40 degree heat. Then we watched the owners approaching people to get them to ride in their carts, other owners were literally whipping their horses even though they were in queues to get in, they couldn’t go any faster as there were no spaces.
Their noses had chains on and behind a couple of the fancy cloth I could see huge gaping wounds!! I just cried, my children cried and my husband tried to comfort us.
Some of the camel owners were hitting them- it was the most horrifying place I’d ever seen.
Such a shame as we just went back to the hotel, terrified at what we’d seen.

Nasr was our guide - he is a professor of Egyptian history in Cairo university - what I learnt today made the Pyramids of Giza not just a wonder of the ancient world but also one for the modern. His knowledge opened up a world that existed 5000 years ago and brought it to life. His passion for history shone out and made the facts interesting and memorable. We then went on to see how papyrus paper was made and finally onto the main Egyptian museum to see the many beautiful artefacts of ancient Egypt which again were explained in detail leaving me with a deep sense of the wonders of Cairo and beyond. We explored the stunning artefacts from Tutankamun and have a deeper appreciation of the craftsmanship of the workers of that time. I highly recommend doing this tour but more importantly to take a professional guide with you so that you can fully appreciate what is a spectacular wonder of the world.

This was truly a marvelous experience and was well worth it. The visit to Egypt was very intentional for us as 1 of our goals as Africans in Diaspora was to explore more spend our tourism $ in Africa and show the next generation their beautiful continent so that they can in-turn show the next generation as well.

Visiting the Pyramids of Giza was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in history, culture, or simply seeking a sense of wonder. The combination of historical significance, stunning views, and the sheer magnificence of the pyramids makes this a must-visit destination.It will last a lifetime.
