You will be amazed at how close this is to Cairo, just turn 180 degrees to see traffic on the street! Turn back, empty desert and ancient pyramids! The site is very dusty and the peddlers are persistent. Wear sturdy shoes, wrap around sunglasses and practice saying, "No".

Once in the Pyramid complex at Giza you will have access to this, the second largest and tallest of the pyramids. Our guide pointed out that only a small portion of the exterior remains (at the top). I recommend going with a guide to this site as you learn so much more about what you are looking at. Our guide... More

One of the three famous pyramids, indescriptible all the feelings when you are standing in front of these hugh buildings, 3000 years and more older, and there they are standing.

You can feel a great positive energy from this centre pyramid which is located exactly at the geographical centre of the Earth as well as on a leyline - part of a natural energy grid. There is no better place to experience this for yourself than on the roof terrace at the Pyramids Overlook Inn which is in perfect alignment.... More

While visiting the pyramids of Giza, this is a part of the tour along with the Great Sphinx. if you are satisfied with the main three pyramids, you may skip this and spend more time at the museum.

Breathtaking experience, once in a lifetime must see. Visit early morning as can get very crowded. We used Ramsside Tours to take us around, highly recommended.

In most pictures this appears to be the largest of the three Great Pyramids, but it's simply set on higher ground and still has the top in place.

You may have it in your head how gigantic these are, you do not. Once you stand at the base, then get back to me! Jaw dropping, and a must-see in life.

Must see along with the other pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx. Steep climbs in and out in very cramped space can prove challenging
