Favorite thing See the pyramids, see the fake that every travel agency make about those pyramids. Its easy to imagine these monuments to be out in the desserts, but they aren´t, couse cairo grows so fast as a city that the pyramids soon will be in the middle of the city..
Fondest memory A funny story our guide told us, as we enered the bus she started to count so everyone was present, she had to do so couse there was a coupple once that was on one of this guided tours, and when the tour was over the guide asked in the buss if someone was missing someone, there where no answer so the bus took off. After a while the guide suddenly rememberd a man that was missing, so she asked the lady sitting alone:
- wasnt there a man sitting next to you?
- yes there was, answered the lady
- But i asked if someone was missing someone, why didnt you say he was missing?
- Well maybe you miss him but i dont, said the lady!
The coupple had have an fight earlier the day, so the man had to take a taxi for 500 km.
Efter that the guide always counted the passanger...
and this is a true story..
Favorite thing Be prepared to defend yourself from aggressive hawkers. They will try to give you something and say it is free (a gift for you), not take it back and then want money.
Favorite thing go with camel to pyramides, and walk like an Aigyptian.
this area is not the right place for buys.
very big... very old !
Favorite thing A trip to the Giza is incomplete without the camel rides. Imagine you're Lawrance of Arabia galloping on these beast of burden in the desert with the pyramids looming ahead.
Favorite thing Get to Giza and wander among the Pyramids and the Sphinx. Take a look at my travelogue on my Giza page.
Favorite thing Our visits to Giza were fantastic. Go during the day and then back again for sunset and the light show at night.
Favorite thing While in Giza,take a ride on the camel.A bit folklor one may say, however it worths trying because of the fun!!!
Favorite thing Go horsback riding with MG stables. They are the best! It is also the best way to see the pyramids.
Fondest memory Horseback riding at sunset by the pyramids.
