Giza Pyramids

Al Haram, Giza

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.

Fantastic tour
The tour was amazing. We got the tour Gide Mary and she did a fantastic job. Already the pick up was smooth and during the tour She gave us a lot of information and patiently took many pictures of us. Also her driver Islam, he was very Kind and and took as safely to all the places. I would 100% recommend this tour :)

Private Half-Day Tours to Giza Pyramids and Sphinx with Camel Ride
We had one of our best experiences at the Giza Pyramids, and this credit 10/10 goes to Mohammed, who was our tour guide for the day! He has impressive knowledge, and I recommend him! He also accommodate us, taking plenty of pictures of myself and also he very helpful, loaning us money until we got to an ATM, sharing Hotspot, and not to forget the delicious fancy lunch we had “grilled pigeon.” Best experience and best pictures!

Private All Inclusive: Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, Saqqara, Lunch & Camels
The car was very clean. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. The only thing we wish was different - he should pick shady/covered places when he talked (other guides took their groups away from direct sun when they gave them information)

Cairo Stopover Tour Visit Giza Pyramids Egyptian Museum & Old Cairo
Totally a private tour, feel bad that two persons (driver and guide) to serve myself only with a clean car. Visited every places as indicated when I did booking. The extra two shopping trips were not too bad, I bought some stuff without any pushes. The guide is good in English and Japanese, he introduced the places we visited with lot of histrionic stories. I would like to thank EMO Tour to make my day enjoyable.

Full-Day Tour Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, and Saqqara
The tour guides English was very good, spoke slowly, was very interesting to listen for all the history also we had plenty of time for photos and extra activities (camel ride). The only down side was the tea experience, we were sitting on pillows 2meters from the road and there were loads of garbage around us. I don’t understand why they couldn’t clean a bit around the area. The tea experience didn’t add anything good to the tour.

Giza pyramids ,sphinx ,ATV bike ,camel ride ,shopping tour & dinner show
The host and driver made my birthday trip even more awesome with their knowledge and extras. I wanted to smoke hookah while there but bc of Covid, a lot of places were not allowing it. They made sure the dinner cruise knew my request and got me a personal hookah for my husband and I above deck while we cruised. The whole day was nothing short of FABULOUS!!! Thank you guys so much for everything!!!

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.

Show all


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.
