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

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

Beautiful! A 'must visit' on your agenda. Don't forget to wear your caps as it is very dry and hot. One comes 'face to face' with a 4 century old structure, very magnificent and majestic and one cannot but wonder human ability.

Not least because Egypt is the cradle of civilisation, the Great Pyramids at Giza must surely be one of the top five Word Heritage Sites to see in your lifetime. Their magnificence and magnitude are unparalleled; the fact that they exist, have done so for over 4,500 years AND the sheer scale of them and the nearby Sphinx will leave... More

This is the moment to go - not too many tourists and so the chance to really enjoy the culture. Still you might be approached by locals wanting to sell services or souvenirs but they take a NO as a No

Standing infront of the Keops pyramid and realizing its actual size and scale blew me away! And, to realize that the ancient Egyptians built it nearly 4800 years back... simply brilliant! I would like to imagine how the pyramid looked earlier when it was covered in soft limestone giving it a smooth surface, and nearly 9 meters taller.
