There are 97 known big pyramids in Egypt (plus many smaller ones for wives and children). What makes the Giza Pyramids different?
The size of the Giza Pyramids cannot be appreciated unless you have visited them but it is not the size that makes them one of the 7 wonders of the world. It is the mystery which surrounds them.
On one level inside each of the 3 Giza Pyramids, food does not decompose (23rd step of 1st Pyramid, 7th step of 2nd pyramid and 3rd step of smallest). This is the same level that Pharaohs were buried on. Gravity is lighter inside the pyramids than out. Electronic equipment does not work inside them. The precision of building them such a long time ago. The scientists remain at a loss to answer these questions.
There are sellers (and tricks) galore at the pyramids. Unless you want to buy something, use the term "La Shokran" being "No thank you" then when they continue "Ana mish eyes" being "I don't want". They soon get the hint and leave you alone. Be warned that they will want money to have their photo (or their camel's photo) taken or to take a photo of you. 2 Egyptian pound is enough or 5 Egyptian pound for tourist police.
