The Basics

Few structures on the planet are as immediately recognizable as the Giza Pyramids, and travelers have several options for visiting these wonders of ancient Egypt. Most see them on a full-day tour from Giza or Cairo; these tours often also include a Nile River cruise or stops at other sights such as Memphis, the Egyptian Museum, and the Khan El Khalili Bazaar. Once at the pyramid site, explore the pyramid complex on foot, or choose to take in the view from afar with a camel ride (a great photo opportunity). Those who visit on their own should keep in mind that there are separate entrance fees for the complex and each individual pyramid.

Giza Pyramids - once in a lifetime experience

Full-Day Tour Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, and Saqqara
The tour of the Giza pyramids was the ultimate touring experience. I recommend taking the tour inside (400 Egyptian Pounds), and then taming the camel ride (100 Egyptian Pounds?). For those wanting to visit the interior of the pyramids, please keep in mind that you will be “climbing” inside some cramped passages, which requires a lot of flexibility. The tour of the Saqqarah pyramids is equally exciting, and shows the birth of the pyramid designs.

Best Tour to Giza pyramids,Sphinx, Sakkara, Dahshuh,Memphis,Camel Ride,Snacks
Our favorite Cairo tour! Amir was our guide and FABULOUS. Highlight of our trip! Had we done this tour first, we would have booked ALL our tours with Amir. He was friendly, easy to talk to, and full of knowledge. He took pictures of us everywhere and (hopefully) enjoyed his day with us too. We got to see every highlight in Cairo - Giza Pyramids, Sakkara, Memphis, Dahsure pyramid and went inside 2 of them. Lunch was surprisingly good too, would HIGHLY recommend this tour, and ask for Amir!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Remember to wear closed-toe shoes and modest clothing at the pyramids.

  • Be prepared for plenty of sun; bring along a hat, sunscreen, and water to stay comfortable.

  • Choosing a private tour will allow you to customize your experience.

  • Leave yourself plenty of free time to explore.

How to Get There

While a guided tour from Cairo or Giza is the easiest and most convenient way to see the pyramids, it’s also possible to visit independently by taking a taxi or public bus from downtown Cairo or the Giza metro station along Pyramids Road.

When to Get There

The winter months (late November to early February) tend to bring optimal weather; in summer, expect temperatures in the 90s F. Keep in mind how traveling during Ramadan could impact your plans, and note that Fridays, a traditional day of rest in Egypt, tend to be a bit quieter at the Great Pyramids of Giza.

How to Avoid Scams and Touts at the Giza Pyramids

The main entrance is often crowded with pushy souvenir vendors, touts, and taxi drivers looking for a fare. To gain the assistance of a professional guide and avoid looking for vendors on the spot, it’s best to book your tour in advance, but if arriving by taxi, ask your driver to take you to the vehicle entrance, where there are fewer touts but still opportunities to book horse riding, camel riding, or carriage tours. You may also come across unofficial guides who claim you must tour the complex with them; this is not true.
