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.

Essam and Adel were terrific
Essam, the guide assigned to me, did an exceptional job. And so did Adel, our driver. Essam thoroughly explained the history behind every site and went out of his way to ensure I am happy and looked after. He also kindly agreed to take photos of me and was overall a very pleasant company which felt more like travelling with a friend! I wholeheartedly recommend Essam and Adel.

Smart Tour to Giza pyramids,Sphinx, Sakkara, Dahshuh,Memphis,Camel Ride
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!

8-Hour Private Tour of the Pyramids, Egyptian Museum and Bazaar from Cairo
Zenab was a great guide - she was knowledgable and open to customising the tour according to what I wanted and did not want to see/do (eg I didn’t want to do the bazaar because of COVID worries!) - which was great. She was also very responsive over messages from the moment I booked the tour until we met! The tour itself ticked off all the Cairo highlights. Thank you!

Short but fun

sunset at Giza pyramids by camels
It was kind of short felt, and the pyramids are far away which I didn’t know. For $50 and you weren’t free to ride the camel. You were dragged the entire time which was okay. What made up for it was the pictures the guide took. He was great.

Private Half Day Tour to Giza Pyramids with Camel Ride, Lunch, Entrance fees
1. I just book for the trip one night ahead before I arrive Cairo. The process is easy and convenient. 2. Mr. Mohamed El Wazir is our tour guide who is so friendly and nice person. He explain the history of pyramid in a detail and take care of each group member’s need. I will strongly recommend to my friend and everyone. I am sure you will enjoy the trip.

Karim and Ahmed were both very personable and pleasant. They went through the day based on how we wanted to arrange it and did so with a smile.

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.
