What people are saying about Pyramids of Giza

This was my second time on this trip with GetYourGuide to Cairo. The trip started with the pickup from the hotel at 4:30am and the flight to Cairo at. 6:00am. Once arrived in Cairo we were picked up by our guide Mariam. She presented very nice the history and locations along the way. We stopped at the Cairo Bazaar, then the Egyptian Museum (the old one since the new one is not yet open) we had a nice boat ride (optional), lunch then went to the Giza Piramids where there were optional visits inside the Piramid and a camel ride (optional for an extra cost. Then we moved to the Sphinx where we had 30 minutes to visit and take photos. There were some extra stops at a papyrus store, cotton store and the last stop before the airport at a shopping mall. This time the flight was scheduled quite late at 23:00 and we spent a few hours at the airport. We landed back in Hurghada at midnight in time for the transfer back to the hotel.

The tour guide was amazing. Really informative, friendly and welcoming. Also, the groups where small - one thing I would add (it’s not a problem, but could be a little better) on arrival in Cairo to was clear where to meet our tour guide, but found him just outside the main entrance of the airport. I would 100% recommend this tour to everyone. Thank you.

Antonio, yala yala. Had a great experience going through the exhibition at the museum and pyramids with our guide. Nothing more can make the trip even better. 5 star recommendation for anyone wanted to visit the pyramids from Hurghada.
