Holiday Warning: Why You Should NOT Visit the Pyramids of Egypt – But Traveler Opinions Differ

A TIKTOKER divides viewers after naming the reasons tourists shouldn’t visit the world-famous Pyramids in Giza.

Carmie Sellitto shared his experiences with his nearly 700,000 followers, but not everyone agreed with his claims.

He said, “Reasons why you should never visit the pyramids in Egypt.”

“First is the fact that you have to climb on your knees for about 30, 40 minutes. And it will be exhausting! It’s like an obstacle course.”

Videos showed the Youtuber and his friends crawling around in the famous limestone pyramids.

At one point, his girlfriend banged her head against the low ceiling as they climbed the inside of the pyramid.

Carmie whined, “There’s no air conditioning in there! How to magically build these pyramids but not add air conditioning? We live in 2023, come on.”

However, the YouTuber praised the “epic” tourist attraction, saying, “You’ll never see anything like it again.”

A viewer of Carmie’s video said, “You thought there was air conditioning… in a pyramid?”

Carmie replied smugly, “Well? In Egypt it was about 40 degrees.”

One follower joked, “What, no 4D experience in the tombs?”

A less impressed viewer chimed in: “No but honest question what did you expect? It was built for many purposes and not for tourism.”

Last week, a bank holiday warning was issued to Britons traveling to the coast of Egypt after a brutal shark attack.

74 kilometers of coastline have been temporarily closed and tourists have been banned from swimming after a man was beaten to death by a shark.

Egypt’s Red Sea resorts, including Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh, are popular with European tourists.

Sharks are common in the area – and there have been a number of attacks in recent years.

But in July last year, two women were killed by a shark near Hurghada within 600 meters of each other.

A 68-year-old tourist died after losing an arm and leg in an attack while swimming in the sea.

Two days later, a Romanian woman was also found dead after a shark attack.

Experts believe the killer shark behind two deadly attacks on swimmers in Egypt was “sex maniacs”.

Specialists from the Red Sea Protected Areas and the Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association said the attacks could be related to mating season and egg laying.

It occurs from mid-April to late July and can lead to violent behavior from the sharks.
