Once you are inside the site, you would find yourself regularly encountered by mobile-vendors. What they sell range from sample souvenir, t-shirts and so on and they always keen on conversation. That is, if you say 'no' or utter something you actually enter the conversation! Just shake your head gently! I guess when visitors enter such a prominent and ancient site, all they want is to forget everything and look at it. No problem with the vendors, but why they should be around inside a ticket-area?

You are not interested in camel ride because you are just looking at and taking photos of the Pyramids. But the camle-owners would approach you and in fact move you around (because when they come to you sitting on their camel-backs you have to take yourself far from the camel!) for having a ride. The catchy starter I heard was 'Camel-ride is free today!'

Once you buy your ticket and try to enter the area, there is a security check and you should remember not to carry any sharp items into your day-pack. The scanning is necessary I guess to deter any terrorist threat.

I try to list the tips as you go to the Pyramid site.

Just a while before arriving at the site, some would try to talk to you through taxi / car window. They talk to the chauffor and make a deal and give him a percentage for taking you to the horse / camel trip to the site. Once you get off, I presume you lose all your bergain! To avoid this you should ask your chauffor not to stop anywhere before the site and that you want to get off right at the main entrance!
