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".

The third and smallest of the Pyramids of Giza in the vast esplanade area. Like exactly the other two it is possible to visit the inside, the only drawback is each of these has an additional cost and in this case the Mikerinos pyramid is about 40 Egyptian pounds I think more or less € 5. Unfortunately I could not... More

Do no go and waste your money, the worst people in Egypt , they love to lie , steal from any body, charge you more because you do not speak the language, it is fealty, expensive , crowded, and not safe.

Kind of interesting...Not a lot to see but as with the others it always amazes me how they built these things. You can go inside and as always if you enjoying snooping around in dark awesome ancient places - its worth it. I love doing stuff like that myself :)
