Cairo Stories and Tips

The Pyramids

A trip to Giza is a trip into history. Go at least once in your lifetime to visit one of the most amazing wonders of the world.

The Pyramids of Giza will astound you with their beauty, and you'll be in awe of the man-made wonder that rises from the desert.

You can get there from downtown Cairo for around A$30, which will hire you a car with a driver for the day. The dollar is very strong now, so your money goes a long way.

There are many hotels from two- to five-star which cater to all budgets in Cairo, and then get yourself to the Pyramids.

The area has now been cleaned up of all the beggers and bargainers, and there is now a vantage point at the top of the hill--a place for all tourists to view the most magnificent sight on earth. Here you will also find the camel guides and horsemen wanting you to take a ride for a few dollars. Why not--they have to earn a living.

You can also buy some wonderful memorabilia right there on-site.

The energy is magic!

The security is now controlled, and all cars are searched on the way in; there is a small fee of $A2 to pay at the entrance.
