Trip to pyramids


I was planning a day trip by plane to see the pyramids (family of 4) . Was thinking to book the plane tickets seperately and take a taxi to the pyramids.

Can anyone give any tips/recommendations.

The way you've said it is what I'd recommend doing.. booking Egypt Air for flights and then grabbing Uber to pyramids (or get a day your from Cairo).

I've done flight before, in a day and back. Booked a tour guide for the day inc taxi. Long day but fascinating! Can't remember who I used as through an old contact.

We did it by coach,firstly a lot cheaper,secondly the coach picks you up around 11pm and you drive through the night arriving in Cairo about 8am hopefully after a half decent nights sleep,from what I can gather with a flight you have to get up around 3am to get to the airport,so a mainly sleepless night before a long day,that’s what decided it for us.
