The Pyramids of Giza are a beautiful and historic archaeological destination full of ancient history. Located on the outskirts of Cairo, the Giza pyramid complex has several cemeteries, a village, industrial complex along with the iconic pyramids.
Walking and self-guided tours weave you in and out of the surrounding pyramids and around the Great Sphinx on clearly-marked paths. The bulk of the crowds take the walking tours; if you’re looking for some bad-ass selfies, take a private tour by horse/camel. The private tour takes you through tombs, cemeteries and across the desert to a plateau overlooking the entire complex. From horseback, you’ll be able to snap jealously-inspiring pictures of all 9 major pyramids.
The guided tour has an incredible amount of Egyptian history packed into a few hours of horse/camel-back riding. You’ll learn about Khufu, Khafre, Menkaure and the Pyramids of the Queens including the many theories behind the construction of the pyramids.
