The pyramids are amazing. There are a few things which could be better, as with all of the places I have visits in Egypt everyone expects to be tipped. This can of course get a little annoying. You have to pay more if you want to enter an actual pyramid however I don't think it is worth it. Each to... More

Traveled just before the arab uprising. This place is just amazing whre you can see almost every nationality gazed in great awe of how breath taking it is. Imagine when you are still so young to dream to see the Pyramids then there I was finally. It is well-preserved history, the pyramids has witnessed a lot of this world. Stunning.

I went with a guide and I was very happy with it. The pyramids are massive. It wasn't expecting them to be this enormous. It is safe to go to Egypt. It is safe! There were tourists but not very many. Be sure to ride on the camel. It is a bit scary at first but you can do it!... More

This wonder of the ancient world is a must see for everyone, The size will take your breath away. Beware of pickpockets and people offering to take you in to the pyramid area. They are looking to rip you off, get I ticket from a reputable seller and don't give it to anyone until you are inside the compound. Going... More

There's a reason why this wonder is still standing, and others have returned to whence they came. The absolute size of this thing is why its withstood the passage of time. It boggles my mind, how they must have built this structure in ancient times. Can be seen from Cairo, but you must get up close to really take it... More

we just know that it is wonder of world but many of us doesn't know the reason behind that why a pyramid with rocks is a wonder? it is indeed because of its architecture, the way its built due to which its standing for more than 5000 years. it was very hot when i visited, so not the best time...

This is one of the wonders of the world, as everyone knows. Right now there are few tourists in Egypt and so it is a less crowded experience to visit the pyramids. I recommend going into the Great Pyramid if you have quite a lot of stamina and can abide closed-in spaces. A guide helped me, saying "watch your head"... More

Yes, visiting the pyramids at Giza was a memorable experience. I've seen pictures of these pyramids all my life, and yet standing in front of these ancient wonders was still amazing. I was most impressed by the almost seamless symmetry of these structures that are at least 4000 years old. Ditto for the Sphinx. It can be a bit anticlimactic... More

After seeing it a thousand times in the books and pictures, a man might thinks he knows what to expect. How unbelievable wrong! When he finally gets there, he realises how small he is. A thousand question arises in front of each visitor. The feeling is unique. Standing in front of it, entering into pyramid, walking around, wondering about that... More
