One of the most mysterious Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (and the only one still standing), the Pyramids of Giza—the Great Pyramid of Giza (Khufu Pyramid), Pyramid of Khafre, and Pyramid of Menkaure—still live up to more than 4,000 years of hype. Seeing these 4th-dynasty pyramids and their guardian Sphinx rising from the Giza Plateau is a must on any trip to Cairo (and the reason many travelers find themselves in Egypt).

Excellent trip, great guide Marco
Our private trip to Giza Pyramids was excellent. We have very experienced guide Marco, egyptologist. He took us to special places in necropolis of Giza. These places were not overcrowded, we can take awesome photographs from special spots. He customised our trip according our wishes. We have great day with him, one of the best trips in our lifes. Thank you so much Marco :)

People Also Ask
Q:Can you tour the Pyramids of Giza?
A:Yes. Popular choices include private and group tours that showcase the three main pyramids (Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure) and the Great Sphinx, camel and all-terrain vehicle rides that visit panoramic pyramid viewpoints, and broader tours that cover the pyramids and other Cairo sights. On most tours, you must pay extra at the plateau to enter any open pyramids.
Q:How long does it take to tour the Pyramids of Giza?
A:A typical Giza Pyramids tour, including return hotel transfers, takes three to five hours, with camel and all-terrain vehicle excursions lasting one to three hours. However, if you're visiting independently and want to enter any open pyramids or visit the plateau's other archaeological ruins, you can easily spend longer here.
Q:What is the best day to visit the Pyramids of Giza?
A:Egypt's weekends fall on Fridays and Saturdays, resulting in the Giza Pyramids being busier these days. If you can, therefore, aim to visit during the quieter Sunday through Thursday period. It also makes sense to arrive early in the morning to avoid any crowds and dodge the midday-afternoon heat.
Q:Are you allowed to touch the Pyramids of Giza?
A:Yes, you're allowed to touch the lower stones of the Giza Pyramids, although it's not encouraged. If you've purchased a ticket to enter a pyramid, you can also touch the interior walls to help navigate the passageways. However, climbing any distance up any pyramid is banned and punishable with a hefty prison sentence.
Q:What do you wear to the Giza Pyramids?
A:It's best to wear shades, a sunhat, and loose-fitting clothing at the Giza Pyramids, together with comfy shoes for walking on the plateau's uneven ground. It's also essential to respect local sensibilities dress-wise: men should wear long pants, not shorts, and women should cover their legs and avoid revealing garments.
Q:How much does it cost to tour the Pyramids of Giza?
A:Expect to pay around 240 EGP (around $7.75) for Giza Pyramid tickets for general plateau access, plus extra to enter any open pyramids. Tour prices depend on group size, duration, and inclusions; and can start from 1,200 EGP (around $39) for half-day excursions and 3,000 EGP (around $97) for full-day trips, including lunch and more comprehensive sightseeing.
