Breathtaking is the only word to describe the pyramids. The sheer majesty of their size and mysterious past leaves one in total wonder. Pictures just do not do them justice. Add the sphinx to the adventure and it's truly one of the trips of a lifetime. My only disappointment was realizing how VERY close the city of Cairo is to these monuments. I expected there to be nothing but desert surrounding them, but alas, the city is just a stone's throw away. We actually purchased tickets to go inside and it was humbling to be inside a structure of age and magnitude. There are other activities here as well; camels and a very unique museum. Well worth the trip. Travel dates were March of 2010
