Viewing the Pyramids by Arabian horseback is a great experience and an unforgettable way to take in one of the world's most famous sights. There is, of course, the slightly smellier and more unusual option of camel riding, a real 'Egyptian experience' and a popular activity with tourists, especially children. Sunrise and full-moon rides are available and, after a hot day out on the sand, you can head back to the riding headquarters and relax on their deck with refreshments and a barbeque while taking in the spectacular views over the Pyramids and Sphinx for the evening laser show. There are any number of operators offering horseback and camel rides around the pyramids and the activity never goes out of fashion. Make sure, before you book a trip, that the animals are well looked after and in good condition as not all operators are equal in this regard and feeling sorry for the animals can completely ruin the otherwise fun activity. You don't need any former riding experience to enjoy a desert ride and its a great activity for the whole family. Costs vary depending on the operator and itinerary that you choose.
