Pyramids of Giza Travel Guide: 441 reviews and 1,432 photos

Well, with 10 months to go before our wedding, we found a great deal on a trip to Egypt... so off to Cairo! It was just a bus ride away to the Pyramids.

We arrived on a Tuesday afternoon, and were ready for an adventure of a lifetime! Upon arriving at the airport, we met several people from our tour group, which was sponsored by Friendly Planet, a US based tour organization. We also met Hyanthum and Tamer, our guides for the trip from Wings Tours.

They took us to our Hotel, Sheraton Cairo Towers... where we checked in our bags, took a quick nap, and got back on the bus. From there we headed to Giza and the Cafe 55 for a real Egyptian dinner, and then off to the Pyramids for the amazing light and sound show.

If you want to know more about our trip... read the tips! (and feel free to leave me a comment)!

Also, emails are always welcome if you have questions...

    Oh yes the baksheesh; that's what you do not have to give, but obligatory. By the way, camels are not the winner of the animal beauty contest, so you do not need to take any photo. Thanks for visiting my Cairo. Best. Laszlo

    Thanks for bringing back some memories of our visit here years ago - including unfortunately the harrassment from the camel owners ;-(

    Wow! You and Sarah are also well-travelled. That is one impressive travel page. Love your tips on the Pyramids of Giza. This is at the top of my wish list for sure. I wonder if the camel owners here were related to the ones we came across in Tangiers!!!

    Useful, helpful, interesting tips. Lots of "tid-bits" that I did not know about. Your warnings and tourist trap tips were especially informative.

    Interesting and helpful page! I'm planning a trip there in a week. Your tips are very useful for me (baksheesh for making pics and video interdiction inside pyramids). Thanks Mark for sharing!

    Aw the every faithful KFC. The Egyptians love the stuff. Personally I found the hawkers here the worse in Egypt. Very good page.
