  • It is impressive to see the pyramids almost in the center of Giza, a fantastic place that incite our imagination to think how many thousands of years ago they managed to do something so incredible...  more »
  • The Giza site is definitely worth visiting however be careful of the vendors in the area. The photographers, hat and souvenir people, camel rides etc will all ask for exorbiant tip amounts. They will....  more »
  • The last standing wonder of the world. Need I say more?
  • Can't rate the pyramids of giza & the sphynx highly enough. Visited for the day & would reccomend being on a guided tour so u know what your looking at. Wear comfy flat shoes or trainers are best. Lots of people trying to sell you stuff but I reccomend just not speaking to them or before u know it they will put a scarf on ur head or try giving u a papyrus as a gift but it's all a ruse & will want money. If u ho with a guide they protect you & they knee our guide so pretty much left us alone. Definitely allow at least 2 to 3 hours to have a proper walk around. It will be hot so take bottled water. You can walk around the pyramids & on the pyramids but if u want to go into the pyramid there is an extra charge. We booked this tour from hurghada with ramashka tours, our tour guide was mamma & he was awesome. You can find their tours on trip advisor & I would reccomend booking before u get to Egypt on holiday. You can book tours once there in egypt but can be more expensive & if u don't have a tour guide u will miss out on enjoying this amazing place. The tour guide will also give u so much information it adds so much to the tour. Don't go to Egypt without going here this is my most memorable place I visited on my hols. Standing at the base of the sphynx & looking up with the pyramids in the background was breath taking. I went 6th Nov and temp was around 28 so ideal temperature.
