You'll certainly be asked to hop on top of a camel for a ride around the pyramids. Doing so will put you directly into contact with the worst touts in Giza. The first time I did this, I ended up at the police station with our guide, was asked to pick him out of a line up, and he was flogged because the tour he sold us was illegal.
For your sake and the sake of the guides, some of whom are just working for someone else who makes the money, try to select as official an operator as you can. The experience is interesting. In retrospect, I probably wouldn't do one of these again. Bad for the animals and can quickly become quite unpleasant.
