While way over visited and very touristy in parts this is still a must for anyone visiting Cairo. There probably isn't a need to spend too much time around the sites as most can be visited within an hour to an hour and a half...More

The place is a must visit obviously. It has a bunch of Pyramids and the History of Ancient Egypt. All around is desert and one wonders how they must have made all this at that time with no equipment but humans!!!

I experienced the Gizah Pyramid Complex via a private tour booked through Viator.com. If you book a tour to the Plateau, be sure to go over the itinerary with your operator beforehand, so there are no surprises. For example, I wanted to ride a camel...More

This is definitely the next step after Saqqara in understanding the incredible history of Egypt. Don't get caught up with the vendors and be careful who you give your camera to for pictures.

It is just a plateau, there is nothing to see here apart from the panoramic view of the pyramids. All of the people come here to make the classic pose pictures “holding the pyramid” or “pushing the pyramid” etc. Of course, here is the place...More
