Egypt Upgrades Visitor Experience at Giza Plateau

September 13, 2022


The long-awaited project to develop tourist services and facilities on the Giza Plateau is now catching a glimpse of light as pilot operations of its first phase have launched with the trial operation of the plateau’s new main gate on the Cairo-Fayoum Road, the visitor center, the international restaurant complex, and the inauguration of the Khufu restaurant.

Shaded seats and benches have been installed, and excursions for groups and individuals have been organized. The first environmentally friendly electric buses and golf carts are in trial operation, with seven stops on the plateau fitted with services for visitors and parking lots.

The project is being carried out within the framework of the joint cooperation protocol signed in 2018 between the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) and Orascom Pyramids Entertainment to develop services on the Pyramids Plateau with the sole responsibility for managing the area resting with the SCA.
