We did this last May and went early with a private guide. We viewed them from the hill first - this is the distance view you associate with the Pyramids at Giza - they leave out the panoramic city shots but it is a fabulous view. We then went to Keops - I was in awe - it really is... More

There are no words to describe how I felt to actually see in front of my nose such a piece of history. This is something that anyone should be experiencing.

The last time we were there we went into the pyramid of Keops and apart from it being hot and cramped the final straw was getting to the burial chamber and having it... More
