Egypt, Cairo, Giza Pyramid --- how do I enter the pyramids

I know you can enter the Pyramids
I'm trying to find a place on-line that offers these tickets
I've also heard some Tour "ompanies will sell you the tickets so they take care of all the hassle of buying the right tickets for the right day for the right Pyramids ---

My question is:
* Does anyone have knowledge of who I can contact to purchase these tickets.

Thank you

I've found this:
To explore the pyramids' interiors, separate tickets – which cost 100 Egyptian pounds ($11) for the Great Pyramid, 30 Egyptian pounds ($3) for the Pyramid of Khafre and 25 Egyptian pounds (roughly $3) for the Pyramid of Menkaure – are required.

but still no way to "reserve / purchase" these tickets.
I'm still looking.

OH - and I don't know when the quote above was written, so I'm not confident the price is current.

I have been to Cairo twice and neither time was the great pyramid open for entry. Not sure why?

I wasn't on a tour, so perhaps finding a tour would help.

I am probably not much help here. I simply told my tour guide that I wanted to go inside the Great Pyramid, and he got the ticket at the same time he got the ticket for the main site. I would strongly recommend having a guide at the Giza pyramids. The environment is pretty chaotic, and I imagine one would be overwhelmed with touts and scammers without a guide.

By the way, I really liked going inside the Great Pyramid. It's a once in a lifetime thing. You should definitely do it if you are in halfway decent shape.

I also took a camel ride at Giza. I had heard that it was pretty touristy, but I enjoyed it. Once again, our guide was able to arrange a ride with reputable folks, and I thought it was well worth it.

thank you everyone, I'm getting the idea that I will need to purchase these tickets ON-SITE. Thank you again.

One more thing. If you want to go inside the Great Pyramid, it's best to get there early in the morning. Tickets are limited, and they sell out early.
