You cannot call yourself a traveler if you haven't seen the pyramids. You need to get up close and personal with them. Even though so much has been said and written about them, you still have to experience them for yourself. Read up before you go and do it at your own pace, rather than using a guide. And beware of hawkers that will try their best to force you, not always so subtly, to buy from them at highly inflated prices. Steer well clear of the camel drivers - they are arrogant, aggressive and all-but-thieves for what they charge even to just sit on a camel for a photo, let alone going for a ride. Either negotiate firmly beforehand (otherwise it will triple in price while you ride) or even better, walk on your own legs (unless, of course, you have never been on a camel before and don't have any prospects of getting on one soon either).

The pyramids and the Sphinx at Giza are awesome; construction them must have been a humungous engineering job with tons of stone transported 800 kms down the Nile, some 4,600 years ago.

The towering pyramids of Cheops and Khafre are visible as one reaches Giza. But as one reaches them, their size stuns one into silence.

Tickets are available at site only- 80 LE for the entire area; another to enter a pyramid and a third one for Cheops solar boat museum.

One can drive around the entire area; camel and horse cart rides are available but do only pay as per the rates provided in signage. Every little request needs to be paid for additionally- even taking pictures.

Drive a hard bargain for souvenirs.

A sound and light program is scheduled near the Sphinx during evenings....we were unable to attend it.

The visite to Giza Pyramids was frightening. The place was full gangs of young boys and market sellers forcing their goods on you. It is extremely unsafe and definetely not a place for women on their own.

You will be walking A LOT in the sun, but this is a definite must see! It's awe striking due to the sheer size of the pyramids, the regal sphinx, and the general idea of all this being built by hand by man! From guided tours to camel rides to buying souvenirs to tours inside the pyramids, you will definitely have fun and find a lot to do.
