Be sure to stay at the pyramids of Giza for at least three hours. That way, you'll have plenty of time to get into the pyramid, look at the view from the top, and take a picture with the sphinx. If you're in Cairo for the day, you should definitely check out both the pyramids and the Egyptian Museum.
It costs 200 Egyptian pounds (11 US dollars) to just take a look at the pyramids during Giza day tours. On the other hand, you can pay 400 Egyptian pounds (22 US dollars) to enter the Great Pyramid. The site is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from October to March and from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily from April to September.
Exploring the pyramids on your own is one of our favorite things to do in Giza, and we believe it will be easy to do with a tour guide if you need to discover the secrets of the place and know its history, also the tour guide will help you with photography.
The walk up the Great Pyramid's Grand Gallery can be a hot and crowded experience, so if you are claustrophobic or have a general dislike of crowds, this activity is not for you. Despite this, we were able to make it through and consider it a worthwhile experience. However, the Grand Gallery is crowded and there is not much to see inside the pyramid.
The price of camel rides in Egypt is set at 50 Egyptian pounds (approximately $3 USD) per 30 minutes. This price is indicated by a sign at the entrance of the area and can be pointed out to visitors who are having difficulty obtaining a reasonable price from touts.

Absolutely mind blowing. A definite must see. We flew from Aswan after I contact Your Egypt Tours, as I did not want to sit in car for hours with my 10-year-old daughter. Just so much history and ancient love. You cannot miss this one thing if you are in Egypt. The rocks are just HUGE, so special.
I recently traveled with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons (ages 4 and 2) to Egypt with Your Egypt Tours. We had a private tour experience. From the moment we landed at the airport on our arrival to the day we left we were treated with the utmost care and attention
Our trip to Egypt was wonderful. The accommodations and travel was seamlessly arranged by customer service rep, Mona, and we visited so many of the famous Egyptian antiquities. I would not have done the trip without the very knowledgeable guides, Ashraf and Mamdouh
