"Going inside the pyramids" Cairo Tourist Trap Tip by NoFuture

Cairo Tourist Traps: 159 reviews and 119 photos

Firstly, it is not worth going into the pyramids at all. You see NOTHING. It is dark, cramped, smelly and dirty. You have to bend down to walk.

Secondly, you have to wait in a huge queue to get in to the stupid pyramid, and for what? To crouch in an empty dark tunnel??

And finally, the worst part of it all, you actually have to pay to go inside, see nothing, put up with the smell etc. It is such a waste of time, effort and money. You'll be glad to get out of the pyramid.

Unique Suggestions: Just look at the pyramid from the outside, marvel at it, gawp at it. Walk around it. You will enjoy this much more and you do not have to pay for it.

Fun Alternatives: As I said before, taking a walk around the pyramid(s) especially in the morning, before it gets too hot or crowded is extremely pleasant. You can admire the pyramids and the desert landscape and take some good photos.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
