The Pyramids of Giza - Giza
Post your hotel pick up, we'll start the tour with our visit to the greatest wonder on earth- the Giza pyramids. Our visit will include all the 3 great pyramids- Cheops, Chefren and Macarinos. There will also be a special visit to the panorama spot to take photos of the three pyramids in one shot. After which, we'll head to the great Sphinx, which is the biggest Sphinx in Egypt followed by a visit to the valley temple, also called the mummification temple. The Giza pyramid is one of the main heritage buildings, which includes ancient wonders of the world. It is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis. Built as a tomb for the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh, Khufu. It was constructed for more than 20 years, approximately around the year 2560 BC. Three smaller pyramids for Khufu's wives, and a pyramid of "satellite" smaller again, in the form of an elevated track, and mastaba tombs surround the pyramid.
The Great Pyramid of Giza also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis. It is one of the tallest man-made structures in the world, which is not only a testament to its durability but also to its mark as one of the most remarkable structures ever built in the history of mankind.

Giza Pyramid Complex - Giza
The three pyramids are definitely impressive. Make sure to purchase admission into either the Great Pyramid or the pyramid of Khafre. The Solar Barque museum is also one of its kind, and should not be missed. The Sphinx and Valley Temple will be seen on your way out, but also get driven to the lookout point overseeing the plateau.

Sphinx - Giza
The Sphinx was our next stop. I have never would have imagined it with large fences around it, I've always just seen the Sphinx on TV or in photos as it was, nothing surrounding it, but this huge creature statuette, and that was it, but you enter through a door area, and walk around tall pillars of stone in the area where the Sphinx was. What a sight it was. Something I never thought I would see! My mind was just being overwhelmed with astonishing sights all day long.
The Great Pyramid at Giza - Giza
Today's stop was the GREAT PYRAMIDS! While the bus started back on the highway, I could see off in the distance the Great Pyramids, and never thought that our hotel was so close, and during the night we couldn't see them. It was a gorgeous day, a hot one, but the humidity wasn't bad at all, We got our tickets to enter the area for the pyramids, and away we went. They're huge! I can't believe that humans were able to create something that amazing so many years ago when they didn't have all the technology we have these days. I still believe it's Aliens!! With our ticket was included the access to go inside the largest pyramid, and you had to climb a path up along the wall, and there was a hallway you can enter. Photography is prohibited, which is too bad, I would have loved to take pictures of the tiny hall way and low arches we had to climb under. There was very little lighting, and after you had to crawl under these huge arches of stone, and climb up a very steep and high flight of stairs that could only fit one person at a time.Once we were up the stairs we were in a dark, black room. It had high ceilings, and it was cool inside. Once my eyes adjusted to the darkness I could see a black box in the back, side of the room. It was the place where the Tomb of Pharoah Khufu would have been placed.
