Have you been in the pyramids at Giza? Am I too claustrophobic to do this?

I'm spending a couple of days in Cairo this week and will be visiting the pyramids. I've heard that actually going in them can be quite claustrophobic and was wondering if any Mefites have firsthand experience of such a visit. I'm not uncomfortable in small spaces, but am one of those people who has to sit at the front of airplane cabins because seeing a sea of heads in front of me while inside a small space makes me queasy. Anything else I should be aware of?
Bonus: I'm really looking forward to shopping in the Khan el-Khalili. Any tips?
