Pyramids tour for solo traveler

Male solo traveler. Can one suggests a tour of pyramid camel ride that’s reliable? Will the tour operate for only one person or charge more for one person? Thx

You don't need a guide for the pyramids. Just a brief read of a guide book will let you know what you're looking at.

I agree with #1 but, if you insist on a tour, loads of firms offer them. Yes, many/most tours operate what they call a “single supplement” where it’s cheaper per person when two or more go.

Whether you’re on your own or not, finding a fair-priced camel ride can be difficult for first time visitors.

as advised before, you can do tours individually and it will be cheaper, as for a solo traveller , yes it must be more expensive as all the costs like rental car, guide fee, tour expenses are paid all by you and it is not same as if there are others sharing the tour with you to reduce costs

Will uber take you from Cairo to the Pyramids?

What about Saqqara?

You don’t need a tour. Just wander around and enjoy the pyramids.

do not advise to use Uber, it will cost a fortune to keep it with you the whole day, especially the way to sakkara and back

better to rent a car with a driver especially to Sakkara

for the pyramids some people prefer to have a car and some do it on foot
