At over 240 feet long and 66 feet high, it’s a wonder that this mysterious sculpture was carved from a solid limestone block.

Truly one of the most remarkable places on Planet Earth. There is nothing quite like experiencing the wonder and awe of the Grand Pyramids or the Great Sphinx. Remember to be kind to the locals, do buy some local 'treasures' and definitely enjoy the moment!

We were part of the Viking Pathways of the Pharaohs trip, so all accommodations were arranged for us. The hotels in Cairo at the beginning and end of the trip were wonderful.

Does anyone recommend a travel agency for roundtrip transportation from the airport to the pyramids with a tour and with a hotel stay?
