Your Guide To Visiting The Pyramids Of Giza
April and September are the hottest months, making it difficult to explore the pyramids, but that’s when you’ll find the best prices. The best weather is October thru March but means more crowds and higher prices. February, April, and May are your best bet for amazing deals on tour packages.
When to Visit
Panoramic Point is an excellent pick to get Instagram-worthy photos with at least six pyramids as your background while standing at the viewpoint near the parking lot, or you can capture photos at the sand dunes. As a Trip Advisor user said, "If you love photography and different angles of photo shoots don't miss this place."
View from Panoramic Point
The Sphinx is an iconic limestone statue, approximately 70 meters long and 20 meters high, and is of great importance in the mythology of the Egyptians and Greeks. Taking pictures with The Sphinx as your backdrop will create indelible memories as you'll not only have a charming photo, but also a valuable copy of an Egyptian relic in your collection.
Photos with The Sphinx
The best time for camel rides is during the sunset or sunrise when it is cool, and you can take magnificent photos of the fiery sky and pyramids in the background. To avoid overpricing, it's important that you ask for the cost of a ride before you get on, and know that giving a tip isn't compulsory.
Enjoy a Camel Ride
For a fee, you can go inside the Pyramids of Giza, spending up to seven hours taking a closer look at the enormous stones, the king's chamber, the underground chamber, and the queen's chamber. In most sections, the tunnel passages are less than 2.5 square feet but have handrails, wooden boards, and lamps.
