Horse Riding

There’s only one thing to do around the Pyramids, and you’ll never stop hearing about it. But a desert horse ride at sunset, with the Pyramids as a background, is unforgettable.

All of the stables are strung along the road south of the coach park by the Sphinx gate.

Expect to pay around LE150 per person per hour at a good place; a reputable operation won’t ask for money till the end of the ride. Others may charge less, but often their horses are very poorly kept. Tip your guide an additional LE10 to LE15, and keep your Pyramids site ticket or you’ll be charged again to enter. Moonlit rides around the Pyramids are another favourite outing but under new regulations you can’t ride anywhere close to the site after 6pm.
