Create an itinerary including Pyramids of Giza
The last of the original Seven Wonders of the World, Pyramids of Giza include a complex of World Heritage-listed ancient monuments, including the Great Pyramid. Dating back to around 2560 BCE, the pyramids were built by thousands of workers under the command of successive pharaohs, with teams of men carving millions of stone blocks at nearby quarries, transporting them to the site, then lifting them into position. The pyramids were used as tombs for the pharaohs, with interior temples, chambers, and galleries filled with offerings. The three main pyramids testify to the power of the pharaohs and the ingenuity of the ancient Egyptians--they have also inspired countless artists, architects, and rulers since their construction.

  • Adventure of a lifetime. I’ll let the pictures tell the story. Just be sure to be as comfortable as you can - sneakers are my go to. This was my second time after 2yrs. The locals are amazing but be sure to tip. They are building a museum near the panoramic view point - I think that’s really going to be amazing!
  • Always nice to visit world heritage sites and one of wonders of the world. Few things to know. Buy ticket, you can take your car inside or better walk. Pyramids are in walkable distance. Do not get looted by local so called guides and rides. Go in morning and roam around. Good weather in November to March months. Feel cool breeze and enjoy coffee.
