Everyone should see this wonder of the ancient world at least once in their lifetime.Go now as there are few tourists and great local deals to be had.

Seeing not only the Great Pyramid of Keops, but all of the pyramids along side it was spectacular. Be sure to ride the camels as they took us quite a ways out onto the sand dunes. We were able to look back and see the entire line of pyramids. The museum housing the Sun Boat was extremely interesting as it... More

The Keops Pyramids are amazing and a sight to behold but it is spoilt by the crowds, touts and animals there. We went there for all of an hour but for us, the main attractions were 1) The excavated Solar Boats which are housed in a special gallery at the base of the pyramid and 2) the View of the... More

To actually stand on the stones and touch the only surviving wonder of the ancient world is priceless. Words can really not express the feeling I got being here in this mystic place so full of energy and history. Anyone interested in history and in Egypt should visit it is surreal.

What can I say, these are the largest and longest standing stone structures in the world (aside from 1 other pyramid in Egypt) Breathtaking monuments whose history make them all the more incredible.

must do when in Cairo. This is really once in life time experience. The structures are huge, man made and really astonishing when considering its each block is more than 2000 pounds. Now there are in total 9 pyramids among them 3 are large and rest are smaller ones for various queens. The travelers should go before 2 PM Egyptian... More

Well... it's a bloody big stone pyramid. I climbed inside (no photos allowed unless you sneak in your phone for pics). Pretty strenouous, hot and mildly claustrophobic climb up to the burial chamber. But, nothing to see there - I don't recall wall art or anything. It's just somethig you have to do... once.

Absolutely massive! Don't bother going inside, save that until Luxor when there is something to see inside rather than empty space. Or go inside and have your mind blown at how old a space you are in. Anything to do with this pyramid is amazing.

I was amazed that the entire pyramid was built by hand by willing workers and NOT slaves. Each stone was cut by hand and moved from the granite quarry to the location you see today.each stone was no less than 2000 tons. All done WITHOUT mechanical aid!
