In my opinion, this is the best of the Giza pyramids. Not only are you not fighting the crowds around and inside the Great Pyramid, but I think the interior chambers are more interesting. Also much easier to handle than the Grand Gallery. Sure, you can stand upright, but that passage is just so long! And the air seems thinner... More

An interesting place and if you enter another world. A place full of history and the show's storyline

This is the smallest of the 3 Pyramids but still worth a look. They all look similar except for the size but this one seems to get less visits than the other 2. Worth a look if you are already visiting.

Far smaller than the other 2 it is best for its (unfinished) marble exterior and the lack of a crowd. It is most certainly worth a stop and walk about. We didn't go in on the advice of our guide - nothing to see and a tough crawl through.

This review is quite late. The Mikerinos Pyramid may not have the grandeur and size of the Pyramids of Khufu and Kefren but it is equally beautiful and deserves to get its share of time and attention from visitors. I went inside all the way up to the chamber, groping in the dark and narrow passage. But I am glad... More

The Mikerinos Pyramid is the smallest of the three on the Giza Plateau. In comparison to the other two, this one pales in size. The upside is if you choose to explore it, there will be far less people in the area. You can go inside but the entry is very claustrophobic feeling- not for everyone. If on a cruise... More

This piece of art is the smallest monument among the three pyramids, to reach the coffin chamber you have to almost crawl your way in and out...inside is a huge room where they kept the pharao tomb.

Not as big as the other two, you could miss this one if you don't have enough time, but if you do just take a quick walk around, as the craftsmanship is still truly breathtaking.

As the smallest of the three pyramids, I could have said "Last" but not least, but almost two centuries ago, a ship destined for England, that was carrying what was the most beautiful of the three sarcophagi, decorated with a motif of a palace façade, sank to the bottom of the sea off the coast of Spain, forever "lost".
