Pyramids at Giza (Cairo, Egypt) Reviews
Newest Review: ... and as you will already know the roads are mental, 7 lanes of traffic merging and overtaking, it really is great fun to watch going on all around you. There was loads of white VW camper vans for some reason which as a fan was ace to see. We were chatting amongst ourselves then all of a sudden 'oh my gosh' came from one of the fellow passengers who were with us then we looked to the left and saw the Great Pyramid of Cheops - mega! We were utterly astounded that we saw this view from the road. Anyhoo we made our way to the main sandy plateau and parked up amoingst a heady mix of sweaty people and vehicle exhaust fumes. Many many coaches par... more

Last years experience of Egypt was an excellent one. Our trip was booked through the rep at the hotel, would love to go back and explore as we wish now we know our way around a bit! An early morning flight from Southern Sinai got us to Cairo International Airport around 7am. We then got onto a people carrier with our tour guide and driver, there was us and another couple and being in such a small group made it very good indeed. We then made our way to Giza City, and as you will already know the roads are mental, 7 lanes of traffic merging and overtaking, it really is great fun to watch going on all around you. There was loads of white VW camper vans ... Read the complete review

My experience at the pyramids of Giza is very much a budget backpacker type and will probably not be too relevant to people arriving on coach tours, having been hanging around Cairo for a while - I decided it was finally time to go and see the oldest constructions in the world - The Pyramids. There are a few options to get to Giza on the suburbs of Cairo, I ended up taking a bus to the bottom of the gate from a bus station opposite Ramses Train Station, there's also a bus that supposedly leaves from outside The Egyptian Museum near Midan Tahrir. On the way back, I had a stroll through Giza combining lunch before eventually hopping on the metro - both options ... Read the complete review

After a packed week on a Nile cruise and suffering a little temple fatigue we arrived in Cairo at our super-posh hotel and sank into luxury. But however knackered we were, we only had a few days in Cairo and were determined to make the most of it. This, naturally, involves at least one visit to the pyramids at Giza. Although 18km out of the centre of Cairo, the edges of this huge city are now encroaching on Giza. Neverthe less the pyramids cut an impressive figure. There are actually nine of them: Cheops 'Great Pyramid' 149m tall, Chephren's pyramid (almost as big), and a third pyramid (the baby of the three ). There are also several other smaller ...

I travelled to Egypt in 2007 and like most tourists, I simply had to go and see the pyramids. Ancient Egyptians mummified the dead and their Kings' bodies were preserved and placed in these pyramids, which functioned as tombs. I am not going to make out that I am an expert on the subject of Ancient Egypt. Rather than focusing on the history, which can be found all over the internet, I will tell you what I thought of my experience at Giza. I don't know what I expected whilst sitting on a tour bus, heading towards one of the 7 ancient wonders of the world. I'd seen a few pictures before but I didn't have much idea of what to expect. The closest ... Read the complete review

I have something of an obsession with ancient Egypt so when I went on holiday to Sharm el Sheikh a few months ago I had to take a trip to Cairo (to the Egyptian museum) and to the Giza necropolis. We arranged our trip through our travel rep. at our hotel, slightly more expensive than arranging it yourself but alot less hassle! We flew from Sharm El Sheikh airport to Cairo at around 5am and then flew back the same night. It was a very tiring day and I was absolutely shattered by the end of it but it was well worth it! The Great Pyramid is all that remains of the seven wonders of the world! So it is a must see. The necropolis (just 25km outside of ... Read the complete review
