  • The middle pyramid at Giza was built for 4th dynasty pharaoh Khafre (Chephren), the son of Khufu, around 2540 BC. It appears to be taller than his father’s pyramid, but that’s only because it was...  more »
  • Although this is the 2nd largest of the 3 great pyramids at Giza, it is nevertheless a most impressive site to behold. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the interior of this one (it being...  more »

  • Such an amazing attraction. What's really interesting about it, is the mystery about the way it was constructed with these massive rocks. It's really marvelous especially in the morning/day time. It's one of the best attractions I have been to, it's worth while. Make sure to wear sans suitable/walking shoes so that you are able to enjoy the whole experience. It's a must go attraction, don't miss it.
  • It's amazing to these structures in person, photos don't do it justice!!
  • You definitely have to visit this. Although other pyramids further away have less tourists and are more in the desert thus you have a different experience more. Relaxing which I appreciated very much. I am thinking of dashour. Do note one thing, it is horrible how the camels and horses are treated at gizah. I find it criminal to pay for these services. Even if you're not specifically interested in these subjects, look it up, you will see beforehand and if you don't believe me, look inside. Please. Don't condone this. One thing is animal exploitation another thing is animal cruelty. Think it twice. Believe me I walked around the pyramids and I think it's a great experience because you get closer, you are not running but really taking them in and although they will insist that walking is not doable because it's too big, that's completely false, most of the people inside actually walk around.
  • I can't give this place what is deserve
  • You can go inside the pyramid, cool !
