“Wondeful !!!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Try to go there in winter time (Nov-Mar) and enjoy it to the most. I prefer you go by 4PM for a nice ride around the three pyramids, and attend the sound and light show by night (in your language). You will not forget that. It is more than some rocks, but it is a complete history in front of you.

“Wonderful.. Would have liked to get closer though!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

The pyramid itself has been closed for two years and no one has been allowed to enter it. I did speak to someone who has been in it and they said it was a great experience (a long way down), although no where near as spectacular as the Great Pyramid. On majority of the tours you do you cannot really get close to the pyramid which is a shame because it's the best preserved at Giza. My opinion pay to go inside the Great Pyramid and admire this one from afar!

“The big 'un!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Best visited early in the morning if you can.It can be extremely hot inside even though they have tried to provide some kind of air exchange system. Well worth a visit in spite of the heat. An amazing feat of engineering, i just wish that i could have been there when it was built, to see how it was done and solve all the mystery about it.
