CAIRO – 22 October 2020: After just two days of its launching, the Nine Pyramids Lounge in the Panorama area of the Giza Pyramids received tourist groups.
Many tourist groups flocked to the antiquities area of the Giza Pyramids Thursday, including a group from Belarus and Ukraine, coming from Sharm El-Sheikh as part of "one-day" trips, to enjoy visiting the Giza pyramids, and dining at the Nine Pyramids Lounge that was opened on October 20 in the Panorama Area.
The tourists expressed their admiration for the way the pyramids were built, and their amazement at the enormity of the Sphinx and the way it was carved. They were keen to go to the panorama area to take memorial photos.
In addition, a trial run of the first environmentally friendly electric bus has been conducted, which will be tested on the path of the visit area through six major stations within the archaeological area.
Director General of the Giza Pyramids area, Ashraf Mohieddin indicated that the tourist groups were impressed by the view that the restaurant overlooks, describing it as "amazing", as they were for the first time able to see the nine pyramids located in the area from a single spot.
It is worth noting that the area development project ensures the provision of transportation within the Giza Pyramids area of buses and vehicles powered by electricity and environmentally friendly energy and providing the area with portable and self-cleaning toilets, providing food and beverage services in the region in the places specified and approved by the Supreme Council of Antiquities, and other agreed upon tourism services.
This is in the context of the ministry's keenness to improve the quality of services provided to visitors in the region, which is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world.
