Our tour guide told us not to bother going into the Great Pyramid as it has been stripped but we went in anyway and it was probably the best holiday experience I have had anywhere in the world. Only 6 other people went in and each visibly moved. Tunnels climb up towards the burial chamber in semi darkness, some with... More

of course it was amazing ! just ignore the annoying vendors and avoid at all cost. Do not smile or eye ball them or go towards their direction if you can. Keep distance. If you are friendly they will swarm at you like bees.

This is for my adventurous friends......... If you are willing to put up with vendors pushing their wares, the rewards are great. NO LINES...........at all. If you look at videos of the Giza grounds before the revolution, it is wall to wall people. They would only allow a limited number of people to go inside the pyramid. Now it is... More

If you are not Egyptian, I suggest to go there with Egyptian just to avoid people that overpricing everything for you. Also, don't go there unless in winter (Nov-Mar), otherwise it is really hot. But never miss it.

A 'must do' bucket list site. Don't pay the extra £10 to go inside the pyramid as you only walk up steep stairs to see a bare room then come down again. Visit the Cairo museum instead.

Make sure you go in numbers and don't let the hawkers give you anything. If they do put it gently on the ground and walk away. The pyramids are stunning. Have a look at the tomb of the Engineer -well worth a walk

Learning the history behind the pyramids is imperative as it gives them personality. The things I didn't like, and this happened at most of the pyramids, were the aggressive camel pushers that were carrying AK-47s.

but was very sad to see what has happened--apparently, mubarek sold most of the land in Giza to developers(? corruption) and the land was developed with no planning guidelines, so wherethere used to be vast open desert around the pyramids, there is awful looking development almost up to within 500 feet of one side of them, so some of what...
