Giza or (e'Giza as pronounced by Egyptians) the hometown of the famous pyramids is the most famous location of the Giza Plateau; the site of the most impressive ancient monuments in the world, including the Great Sphinx, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and a number of large temples and pyramids. Renting a camel, horse, or quad bikes are relatively easy in the area.
Being a tourist, this is one of the places where a tourist may grasp a bit of the Egyptian lifestyle, unlike Hurghada and Sharm and many tourist-based beach resorts where you might not get an authentic experience of the Egyptian culture and lifestyle.
The "Haram street" is a street that is full of hotels, convenient if you choose to stay in Giza, as you will be very close to the pyramids and if you are lucky enough, you might be able to see the pyramids from your own window.
Disadvantages are the heavy traffic, the sounds of car horns almost never stop, and the city is generally a bit dusty.
