  • The views were breathtaking. I was so excited to finally reach the great pyramids. The feeling was just indescribable. There are some things in life you just need to experience once and this was definitely one of those moments. It was a pleasure to visit Cairo and Giza.

  • There are simply no words to describe the emotion being in front of these 4,500 years old pyramids!!! 5 star is not enough for the beauty and still the mystery around these constructions. However, if I had to rate the organization from the entrance kiosk, to the guidance on the site itself, I would rate this as ZERO! The rip-off starts at the entrance where you get lost with the prices shown; you do not know what is included in your main fee and how many pyramid entrances are included if you add this option. The site is simply an open dustbin, and you can find coca cola cans on the actual pyramids, not to mention the non respect of these monuments by people climbing all over the place. The fault being in the lack of controls from the locals... simply unacceptable! Do not get camel or horse tours; poor animals are mistreated and hurt by their owners.

  • Interesting to see the great pyramids. Normal admission even covers entry into 2 small pyramids without additional cost. Beware! Some taxi drivers take you to the rear exit and to a horse carriage guy telling you that it is not allowed to walk, this is a lie and the rides are a scam, taking you on a small route including "photoshoot" at a panoramic view were you get to ride a camel, this is for an additional (large) charge in tips. The guy gets quite mad if you give him only a small tip. A good idea is to tell taxis that you want to go to Pizza hut near Haram (pyramids), this will bring you to the main entry, and pizza hut even has a good view of the plateau while you eat. The plateau itself is alright, you have to buy tickets for Kheops pyramid at the main window, which is 10 minutes walk from the pyramids, something you do not get to do if you are on the scammy horseride... The admission covers entry into 2 small pyramids which might give you an idea of what to expect. Note that, like for all other temples, and such in Egypt, All people who say that photos are free want tips, even the ones who you tell that you do not have any tips... All in all a good experience, which can be ruined by lying horse slingers who send you on rides that are not worth it, i.e. you only get a glimpse of the sphinx as you pass by, no close look at the pyramids, etc.
