Things to know before booking your Pyramids of Giza tickets

  2. Pyramids of Giza tickets include entry to the Pyramids complex. Entry into the Pyramids themselves requires separate tickets.
  3. Book tickets in advance as there are several touts at the venue who might heckle you to get it from them at over-priced amounts.
  4. Consider booking the optional camel ride along with your Quad Biking Tour of the Pyramids ticket to enjoy a unique camel ride in the Sahara and a quad biking experience around the pyramids. Please note that quad biking is not allowed inside the Pyramids complex.
  5. Finding a hotel in Giza during the peak season can be challenging. You can book your stay in Cairo and arrange full-day guided tours or half-day guided tours, as transfers to and from your Cairo hotel are included in the ticket price. Public transportation to the Giza complex can be quite tiring.
  6. For a culturally immersive experience, consider booking Combo tours. These tours allow you to explore areas in Giza and Cairo, like the vibrant market at the timeless Khan el-Khalili Bazaar in Cairo's old city and the Egyptian Museum, in addition to exploring the Pyramids. This provides you with a deeper understanding of the local culture.
