5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Built on higher ground at a lower hieght. Kefre kept his promise to not build his pyramid taller than his father's Great Pyramid. Spectacular!

“Breathtaking and spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The history and stories behind these pyramids are so fascinating, 2 million stones that were covered once in gold. After looking at pictures of them and wondering on the tv, it's just nothing like being at the foot and looking up, highly recommended....

All of the Pyramids are beautiful! As I previously stated, take in the night show! It is beautiful! As with all of the Pyramids, the hawkers are there to try to get your money!

“Walking inside a Pyramid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We visited the pyramid as part of a cruise excursion. Part of the excursion was to walk (squat) inside a pyramid. What an experience. Entering the pyramid, the entranceway is maybe 4 foot high by 4 foot wide. You need to squat down to get into the passageway. The passageway is also the exit so you have people exitting as you are entering. The passage is just wide enough for one, so sometimes you need to go back before you can go forward! No cameras are allowed in the Pyramid. The ticket collector monitors the # of people inside the pyramid at any given time and will stop further entries until someone exits. It is really quite an experience to stand-up in the Burial Chambers! A once in a lifetime experience, but not if you are Claustraphobic!!!
