Transport within the Plateau
The ground that the pyramids cover is pretty extensive, and walking from one pyramid to another isn’t a short stroll (even if they may appear to be reasonably close to one another), especially in the scorching heat. However, if you do decide to visit early in the morning, you can chose to explore on foot and walk like an Egyptian. This way you can travel to the main sites in your own time and really soak up what you are seeing. The distance between each of the 3 main pyramids is about a 10-15 minute walk and it takes about an hour to walk from the entrance to the furthest viewpoint of all three Pyramids. Just protect yourself from the sun with a hat and adequate sunscreen. Also, don’t forget to wear comfortable walking shoes and carry lots of water to keep you hydrated.
If you don’t want to ride a horse or camel, it’s best to not make eye contact. Although it's something of a cliché, a camel ride in front of the pyramids is one of those tick-the-list Egyptian things to do. If you're going to get on a camel once during your trip, it should be here. Prepare to bargain.
