Visited the pyramids on a Wednesday morning. Quite honestly, was kind of a let down. The mystique is better from a distance. Up close all I saw were tour groups, people climbing all over the pyramid of Khufu, and armed security. I guess I was...More
You can see these pyramids as you drive from Cairo to Giza. Suddenly, you will see these incredible structures on the left side through buildings and thousands of cars and donkey carts. But, their true majesty is realized only when you stand among them.
It is indeed one of 7 wonders of this world. A must visit. It’s breathtaking and astounding. Great efforts to make and preserve it. Be careful of getting into it. It’s quite steep and narrow. People with claustrophobia should avoid. Beware of souvenirs sellers. They...More
Words are not enough to describe this site. Though hot and crowded come to mind , more seriously this is one of the wonders of the world and it is mind-blowing to think how this ancient civilization built the pyramids and the sphinx, just amazing.
The Great pyramid of Giza is one of the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex. From books and movies I saw plenty of pyramids, but when I saw it in person,...More
When visiting the Pyramids, its best to go as soon as they open and not on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday as that starts the "holiday" or weekend as we call it in the US. Wear comfortable shoes with good tread if youbplan to walk up...More

Yes it does . If you are in Hurgahda I would highly recommend climbing mt Moses ( Sinai) and going to st Catherine’s to see the burning bush as well. You start climbing around midnight and get to see the sunrise where Moses’s cave is. Awesome. Then if you go to Giza make sure and go to Saqqara the pyramids there still have the original paint on the hyroglyphics . Egypt air is super cheap to fly from Sharm to Cairo and you can stay right in front of the pyramids and Sphinx for next to nothing you can walk from most of the hotels to the pyramids in Giza

Greetings. You will want to stay in Egypt, I recommend Cairo. If you have children, they will enjoy many things there. I personally found the sound and light show at the pyramids exceedingly boring and not well-done (see my review on that). However you could spend most of a day at the pyramids, you can climb up on them (the path leading to the entrance) and even go inside. Small children might be scared of the inside, just due to the cramped-ness of it, but the others would find it quite an adventure. You can also ride a camel--don't ride them right there at the pyramids, there is another area further away that gives a better view and a longer ride. However, if you are limited where you can go, you can ride them there. Khan al Khalili market is also fascinating, all of you will have fun there. See my review on that for tips. The museum is also fascinating, but you will want to prepare the children for what they will see, that is, so they will know what they are looking at since there are few explanations there on the exhibits. The King Tut room is a must and the boys will like the mummies. You will enjoy the trip, I wish you all the best! OH! don't try to cross the streets there, take a taxi for sure, the streets would be very bad with children.
