This is of course a MUST SEE and my main reason for visiting Egypt. It is absolutely worth the visit. The history is unbelievable and the fact that it so well preserved and that it was built without any modern technology we have today with such precision is just hard to believe. It is worth visiting the inside as well... More

I am giving the site 5/5 because how can you not? Just be forewarned that everyone from the guards to the camel drivers to horse buggy drivers will harass you in some form or another to get you to buy their services or tip them or have them take your photo (for money) - there was absolutely no way to...

The pyramids are not as the movies make them out to be, but the fact that it was built 4500 years ago will blow you away. Good experience but locals try to sell you things and are constantly requesting tips.

Visited Khafre's Pyramid few days after arriving to Cairo. I entered the Pyramid and was very overwhelmed by how ancient Egyptians built those Pyramids, how long it took them, those Pharahos were geniuses.

Again excellent Pyramid , the Khafre's Pyramid is second tallest 136 meters high , only second to his fathers Khufu's Giant Pyramid . It's peak is covered with polished lime stone casing. It's east side view gives you good photo opportunity. Over the time most of valuable granite stones are removed and used in other palaces and mosques.

I went around sunset and rode a camel...such beautiful views. Try to go around the back to get photos without other people. You can go inside for a small price.

The second of the three big piramids: best preserved because you can see the original chalk layor on top of the piramid.

The Pyramids of Giza is about 4,500 years old. Imagine how a person can possibly built something which will be time tested and even be earthquake resistant. Marvellous!!

I blows the mind how the pyramids were built and how they are still in such amazing shape. I think this is a must see for any traveller.

The Pyramid of Khafre is only 10 feet shorter in height and 50 feet shorter in width at the base than the Great Pyramid of Khufu. It actually appears to be larger because it was built on higher ground. This pyramid is distinguished by a cap of limestone facing that is still retained on its top. The effect of this... More
