Giza Pyramids hiring horses

We went riding at the pyramids today!
The plateau was very busy and it was nice to see tourism picking up again. 

If you want to ride a horse I would recommend asking for  Ashraf who works the horses there.

For 100 le per person you will be guaranteed more than an hour ride from the main car park at Chephrens Pyramid all the way along the road leading past the 3 main pyramids up to the brow of the hill, then down out into the desert Northwards to the peak of the plateau, then down past the Muslim cemetery down to the sphynx enclosure and back to the car park. It's a good hack and takes more than an hour.
Ashraf will guide you, he will also take photos for you at all the locations you want. If you are an experienced rider he will let you gallop out to the plateau and if you are a beginner will stay with you and guide you. His horses are very quiet and great for learners. Ashraf doesn't speak much English but easily guides you to the path he takes to allow you to see all you want to see. You wont get any hassle, he's very polite.

Tip him 50le - 75le for a couple or 150le for a group of 4 for the excellent hack.

It's well worth it!
