  • You read about them in Kindergarten. You see them in the movies. But you never believe you'll actually see them with your own eyes. Simply amazing. Go early in the morning. Pay extra to go...  more »
  • A half-day tour from our hotel to the pyramids and then take the camel ride was really enjoyable. Our Guide was excellent who made us comfortable to place my 88-year-old father in law on camels's...  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.
