We reached the Pyramids of Giza, where a chap stopped us at the bottom of the hill and told us only government vehicles could travel up the hill and that we should park at the bottom. The staff said that we should not leave our cars at the bottom of the hill! I left Nicky and Lily in the car and ran up, ignored all the people offering advice and went straight to a tourist police officer who said, yes drive up. Be suspicious here, as guys want a buck for all services and they want you and family to use service available. We opted to drive up and Lily helped us avert a security check and for 60Egypt pounds we drove into the one way system that starts in Giza and takes you around and down to the Sphinx. If you have a car take it, you also have the option of parking it in the Giza park, but be cautious of the constant bother, but the sights from the car are quite stunning especially if you have air con.

    very good trip; I think that the new road is open for Sudan. I’m not 100% sure of the news but is better to ask before to take the ferry. Good luck, Gianni.

  5. This is a place we have never been to yet, the Pyramids look amazing. Your photographs show brilliantly how it really is, The local people, the road, the locals selling their wares. Wonderful. Happy travelling and love to you all. xxx
