    Going to Egypt in October. Any thoughts about safety in visiting Giza and pyramids?

    I returned from Egypt just a month ago. There is NO threat to your safety as a result of cultural and political turmoil, trust me. :) Even Tahrir square is safe during the political rallies every Friday, and the locals will advise you if it's safe or not anyway. Having said that, the most annoying thing about Egypt right now are the desperate tourist scammers, and Giza is particularly rough. I suggest not to allow any of the locals to talk to you at Giza especially when the conversation starts with: "Hello my friend, welcome to Egypt, where are you from my friend?" Also, be careful about anyone asking to see your ticket once you're already through the entrance! Saying "La Shukran" which means "No thanks" is usually the best way to go, but you might have to repeat yourself several hundred times, that's quite normal. -_- I hope you enjoy the pyramids, they really are marvelous! :) about 7 years ago
