The visit was short and it always has since I can remember. It's a great place for weddings and wedding photos. I liked the the gift shop. It had a lot of cool items and was a decent size!

To me, pyramids look impressive from the outside, but inside you go for a 20 min walk and it's all over. Overpriced for what it is. Expected a lot more to be honest. At least had good coffee.

There are a limited number of wheelchairs. Perhaps call just before going to see if they would hold one for you. Going there is worth that call. It is a most revitalizing experience.
