Second trip in 2017. This place is amazing and yet disappointing. As one of the seven wonders of the world it should be preserved to the highest standards. The roads into the area, shops and neighborhoods should be pleasant. The area around is nasty, the area around the pyramids is nasty with thrash. Everyone there is hustling to make a... More

Having learnt about the great Egyptian history, and the pyramids as an integral part of that history, nothing can prepare you to the amazing reality of the novelty of those that conceived the idea of, and executed the construction plan of the pyramids. Don't miss visiting once in Egypy.

This 2nd pyramid belonging to the son, Kefre, presents an optical illusion. It appears to be higher than the father's pyramid, Cheops.

It's very interesting that Kefre has kept it's original outer "stucco" at the very top where the rest of it and the other two pyramids have lost theirs exposing the rough building blocks.

As with all the other pyramids this one is beautiful! Take time to appreciate it and go inside if you can! It is definitely claustrophobic inside so if you struggle with this better not go down the tunnel but it is cool to get a sense of how they did it in ancient times!

Not as impressive as the Khufu pyramid but it is a sight in itself. It's definitely a must - visit if you're in Giza,

An amazing must see attraction in Cairo. It gets very busy and the hawkers bother you. But it doesn't detract from this magnificent structure.
