Did you have a guide accompanying you? A guide may have told you beforehand that the pyramids are void, saving you the disappointment of looking at a
vacant triangular room.
Besides, Cairo's chief sightseeing appeal lies in its bazaars, medieval mosques and the Nile Valley, more so than even the pyramids. It seems rather
odd that they over emphasis the pyramids when they can lure tourists by other, better things.
By any chance, did you visit the town of Luxor? I think you may have enjoyed it far more than Cairo, I did. It has magnificent temples and the Theban
Necropolis, which includes the Valley of the Kings where Tutankhamun and other pharaohs were buried.
In my opinion, Egypt isn't a disappointment, but if you do plan on going, make sure you do extensive research on the type of things it has to offer
before jetting off. It is also wisest not to have too many expectations.
