Content: Pyramids are must see in Egypt! We were staying in Cairo. In the morning we ordered Uber and went to Giza. The Uber ride was about 30 minutes and the cost is about $4-5. When we arrived it was already hot. That is why we hired a horse carriage to go to each pyramid. The house carriage costs 300 Egyptian pounds per 2 people. The entrance fee was 200 Egyptian pounds per person. We really enjoyed our visit, the guide took our photos and told us a lot of valuable information.
