  • One of the seven wonders of the world, so this is the reason to go to Egypt. Do read about them before you go so that you can appreciate them as one should.

  • It's the freaking pyramids... they are amazing and a global icon of ancient history and travel. The area needs investment and clean up-- for sure. But, come on, it's an incredible location which every person should be able to see. Grab a carriage and bargain for 250 LE for the whole trip around the site-- it's worth it. Give the guy 50 le if he does a good job, 100 if he's great. Be wary of price gouging camel guides-- agree upon a fair price ahead of time. Never more than 200 LE for any photo opportunity. Just be nice, but be firm. It's an amazing location and should be visited in the early morning. If you are a student, bring your ID and you'll get a discount.
  • Visited on a trip while staying in Hurghada .Very long day . The best thing I would say is that you can say you have seen them .Not that impressed not what I thought they would be a bit disappointed .Camel rides and horse and carriage are 200 Egyptian pounds each person very rough ride in carriages would recommend camels
