    Wonders of the World, no wonder!!
    The Pyramids of Giza are on all travellers' bucket list. It was very crowded when we visited in late April. Fortunately the weather was mild and we enjoyed the sights. It was stunning at first sight, no wonder they are the Wonders of the World! We also went for a camel 🐫 ride which would bring you closer to the Pyramids.

    Awe inspiring.
    When I arrived in Cairo, I was shocked to see such overflowing crowds, traffic jams,dirt and garbage, soon my shock turned into appreciation as this is characteristic of mega cities like any other cities in the world. I stayed at a budget hotel quite near to Tahrir Square and took assistance from the hotel reception to do sightseeing around. Mr. Husnia, the guide, driver and manager of the rooftop restaurant offered to take me around. He is a talkative person but friendly cutting jokes and sharing hidden stories of the city. We drove to Giza stopping at Nile bridge, Papyrus Private Museum. The initial views of the Pyramids are stunning and spectacular. I took a long trip riding horse and camel at one place. No wonder this is one of the most visited ancient wonder of the world, the enigmatic Sphinx, a mythical sculpture of a man with hunches of lion, ruins at the entrance, the extraordinary architecture, huge structures continue to defy human imagination. It's still a question mark and a mystery for researchers, historians and layman alike why and how such massive tombs for Pharaohs were built almost 4000 years ago. This unique civilization is a classic and awe inspiring example of ancient Egypt. There is an admission ticket also charges for guide and horse. One should negotiate and be clear. It's necessary to wear a cap and a bottle of water. Don't miss panoramic point for fantastic views. Also not to miss entering Khafre Pyramid,now open for visitors. There is a separate ticket for this. There are lots of touts around so be careful.

    The seventh wonder of the world
    Here are the two largest pyramids and the swinx (I think there are 9 pyramids on the Giza plateau in total). There are a lot of people, the good thing is that there is shade along one of the pyramids. There are many merchants and camel drivers, but they do not bother and do not push... The Pyramids can be entered, but we gave up, since there is nothing left in the chambers, and there was a long queue. We watched the swinx only from afar. The place is remarkable…

    A 7th wonder for a reason- amazing! Get a guide!
    Our first trip abroad and the pyramids were amazing! Use a guide! The riffraff won’t bother you and they provide excellent history and insight - much more than you’d get alone. Unless you want extra experience, riding camels is not necessary but I wouldn’t recommend walking. It’s further around than it looks. Bring sunglasses if no glasses especially if it’s windy. The restaurant at top is nice but expensive. For cheaper fare eat at bottom near entrance. Remember it is extra to get into great pyramid - we passed because there are no paintings on walls or artifacts inside. Up to you. But this was definitely one to see!!

    Definitely a wonder of the world for a reason
    This place is off the hook!! It truly is a wonder of the world. You can climb the big pyramid. You have to do the camel ride They do not mistreat their camels at the place we went and I felt very comfortable supporting them. It was a great experience that I will remember forever. Make sure you hold onto your camera and bring money for tips.

    Must-see
    The Pyramids are a must-see. I've been stunned by the accuracy of the design and its sturdiness even 5,000 years after construction. The overall experience is a bit tainted by the fact that coaches and cars drive right through the area. However, entry and walking around is not as chaotic as some sources suggest. The crowds dissipate quite quickly across the large area. Upon advise by several people, we did not go inside the pyramids.

    Awe inspiring pyramids, but welfare concerns for the working animals.
    Being able to walk up directly to the pyramids and touch them leaves you with a sense of awe for the builders. The photos do not do them justice. They are truly beautiful. Unfortunately, the welfare for the working camels and horses is a major concern. The camel drivers pierce the noses of their camels and insert a nose pin that is attached to the reins. They pull hard on the reins, causing damage to the septum of the nose and severe pain for the animals. The horses stand in the sun for long periods of time. There needs to be more veterinary oversight.

    Awesome but get there early
    Amazing and awe inspiring, the pyramids should be on everyones bucket list. Our guide got us up bright and early and there was almost nobody at the Grand Pyramid when we arrived. We had a ticket to go inside the Grand Pyramid to the burial chamber and it was quite a climb but amazing to be inside this massive structure. When we arrived at the chamber we were the only two people there and got some great pictures before returning back down the many steps to the entrance. By the time we walked out there were many people and the photo attached would not have been possible without the early start.

    Phenomenal place with so much history
    Amazing place. Would recommend visiting either early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowds and heat. The site is very walkable if you have hours to spare, otherwise you can take a taxi / horse carriage around the site. Make sure to go inside at least one of pyramids!

We had an amazing time at the pyramids it was all possible because of our coach driver named ahmad he was kind caring and respectful towards me and my friends, he took really good care of us, made us laugh and drove in a safe manner. I wanna thank Ahmad again for being our great coach if I had another chance to visit the pyramids again, I would like to be with the great coach driver Ahmad😁😁👍

This is something I wanted to do since I was a child. I was seeing the Giza Pyramids and The Great Sphinx in real life. I did it eventually, and as they say, seeing is believing. It was an extraordinary moment in my life, and i felt so humble before these time-defying structures

What can I say, it’s the Pyramids, they are going to be amazing. And they were. But. They aren’t showcased in the best way with a car park next to them, too many hawkers and a unsafe and disorganised (lack of a) system for going inside the pyramids. It detracted a little but was still a fabulous experience.

The pyramids were amazing- my family, friends and I enjoyed it a lot. You could go inside for a fee, but our tour guide said it's not worth it. If you walk a bit to a elevated place where the pyramids are still clear and near(maybe 100m away), if someone else takes a picture of you like your holding the pyramid- that's be cool, we did that too. It's like where you shape your hand like a rain drop.

Fantastic experience, the glory of the place, the secret of its construction and moreover how they remained after all these years as one of the seven wonders.

Its history, so its worth to see the place for once.
But its very hard when you dont hl there without tourguide or someone you know.
There is no explanation about where to go, or a map. Or to buy tickets- there is no one to explain.

I'd always dreamed of seeing the pyramids up close, so I was excited to visit Cairo. And yeah, the pyramids were just as awesome as I'd hoped. But my joy got totally wrecked by all the people bugging me for cash.

As soon as I got close to the pyramids, it was like I had a target on me for every other local. Tour guides, souvenir sellers, etc - were all up in my face, almost demanding I use their services. It made it hard to enjoy myself and relax. I wish there was a better balance so visitors like me could enjoy the pyramids without feeling hassled all the time.

Overall, seeing the pyramids was nice, but the constant hassling was extremely annoying to say the least.

My visit to the Pyramids of Giza left me with mixed, mostly negative feelings, so I'm giving it a 2/5. While I wasn't dying to see the pyramids since I was a kid, I figured it was something to tick off the list while in Egypt. And honestly, my experience was very disappointing.

Sure, the pyramids themselves were cool, but a couple of things really bothered me. First off, there were so many people hassling me for money. It felt like everywhere I turned, someone was in my face trying to get me to pay for a photo. I got tired of it fast, and it kind of ruined the vibe.

And then there were the animals. I'm not usually one to get all preachy about animal rights, but seeing how poorly the donkeys and horses were treated really made me mad. They looked miserable in the heat, nd it was in winter. I can't imagine how bad it gets for them in the summer.

So yeah, the pyramids were cool, but the constant begging and the way they treat animals definitely ruined the experience for me.
