Take a timeline with you on this trip. We visited key places in Cairo, Alexandria and surrounding areas.... This was the best part of our trip. Making my textbooks come alive for me! Three pyramids together. Take the camel ride and get the corney photo. I loved it....

Seriously, how could you give this archaeological wonder any less than five stars? To see it in person was an experience of a lifetime. To learn about Egyptian antiquities will take many more! (This review covers just the one pyramid. The entire complex takes at least half a day.) We took the opportunity to go in to the interior which... More

It was great to go inside and both my kids loved it. Surprised how hot it was inside though. Also expensive as costs 2.5 times entrance price again.

They are beautiful, the history of its building is very impressive. There are more pyramids, and each has its intriguing and wonderful history.

One of the seven wonders of the world....what more can I say? Make sure you get inside the firemen, if you have a local friend and especially an officer it will make things much much easier and less expensive for you, try is there a camel ride from the pirate to the sphinx and take many many pictures!

Just for the sake of being inside the last surviving Ancient wonder it is worth to pay 100LE for the Great Pyramid. When you get to climb to the main chamber of the pyramid the feeling is amazing.

It was awesome that even I am an Egyptian it was my first time to get inside the Great pyramid. It was very hot inside like a super steam and we walked like ten minutes with our backs bending over and finally we found the Tomb of the great king. It was awesome and its worthing the effort.

Khufu is often the most talked about pyramid since it is often regarded as the last surviving representative of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It is easy to forget as I stared at Khufu that it is actually 9 m shorter than its original 146 m height. 2 million blocks were used for this pyramid alone. Compare this... More

If you want a magical experience, stay at the Pyramids Overlook Inn - the closest you will get to the sphinx and the view from the roof terrace is breathtaking from sunrise to sunset - see the Sound & Light show in comfort!

The pyramids are a majestic piece of ancient construction. Still trying to find out myself how they built them 5000 years ago.
