One of the men, whose face was blurred in the video, bragged about selling stones to foreign tourists for up to 500 euros.
The pyramids, which were used as sacred burial structures, were built in the fourth Pharaonic dynasty. The Great Pyramid is the oldest and only surviving monument of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
