Can you do the Pyramids in one day?

Plan on spending a minimum of three hours at the Pyramids of Giza. This gives you enough time to go inside one of the pyramids, visit Panoramic Point, and snap a photo with the Sphinx. A great way to spend one day in Cairo is to visit both the Giza pyramid complex and the Egyptian Museum.
 

What time of day is best to go to the pyramids?

Arrive early: We recommend you reach early in the morning around 8 AM to beat the 9 AM tour bus crowds. Also, you can get the best views of the pyramids in the morning.

Can you go to pyramids without tour?


If you're looking for a quieter, self-led experience, it is completely possible to visit the Pyramids independently. In this guide, you will learn everything you need to know about planning your visit there without booking a tour.
