Khafre's Pyramid

Next to the Great Pyramid of Khufu, this is the second-largest of the Giza pyramids; Khafre was the son of Khufu.

Reviewed By djs482 - Indore, India

It is one of seven wonder of world 'Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. The largest Pyramid height 147 mt., Base 231 mt., Volume nearly 25, 83, 283 cu.mt. Slope 51-52 degree, Architect Mr.Hemiunu, Ancient name is Khufu's Horizon. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest & largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, & the only one to remain largely intact. Based on a mark in an interior chamber naming the work gang and a reference to fourth dynasty Egyption Pharaoh Khufu, Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BC. The Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years. Originally, the Great Pyramid was covered by casing stones that formed a smooth outer surface; what is seen today is the underlying core structure. Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure can still be seen around the base. There have been varying scientific & alternative theories about the Great Pyramid's construction techniques. Most accepted construction hypotheses are based on the idea that it was built by moving huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into place.
There are three known chambers inside the Great Pyramid. The lowest chamber is cut into the bedrock upon which the pyramid was built and was unfinished. The so-called Queen's Chamber and King's Chamber are higher up within the pyramid structure. The main part of the Giza complex is a setting of buildings that included two mortuary temples in honour of Khufu (one close to the pyramid & one near the Nile), three smaller pyramids for Khufu's wives, an even smaller "satellite" pyramid, a raised causeway connecting the two temples, and small mastaba tombs surrounding the pyramid for nobles.

Amazing experience. My girlfriend and I booked this on a whim after hearing about it through Dhaab hostel. This was without a shodow of a doubt our best days in Egypt. Ahmed was our wonderful guide. He was warm, knowledgeable, and even invited us into his house. Not to mention a great cook! Take a look at these photos, they speak for themselves! Thank you everyone at Oasis Egypt Safari and Dhaab hostel.

Pyramids of Dahshour

This complex contains pyramids from the Fourth and Twelfth Dynasties including the Southern Pyramid, or Bent Pyramid due to its unorthodox outline, and the Red Pyramid.

Reviewed By Hawkeye79 - Cairo, Egypt

Having lived in Cairo for about a year now, I think the Dahshour complex is one of the most underrated sites. Everyone should see the Giza pyramids because they are iconic and spectacular. However, once you've gotten your glamour shots, I think the Dahshour pyramids are a better overall experience:
The Step Pyramid: Alas, under renovation and the one site at Dahshour with about the same level of hassle as Giza - trinket vendors, camel renters and tour groups. Also, the pyramid is inaccessible and under partially scaffold. A lot of groups just seem to tag the step pyramid after Memphis and move on, which is tragic. Still worth seeing, but please don't stop there.
The Bent Pyramid - probably my favorite pyramid. The majority of the outer cladding is intact, unlike Giza where only the top of Khafre still has the cladding. The bent profile is striking when it looms over you. When I was there on a Friday morning in early March, we were literally the only people present aside from two guards on the front side.
The Red Pyramid - Very low traffic, and a far more interesting interior than the Great Pyramid. You descend in a sloped shaft for about 40 fifty meters, then see three internal chambers.
The Serapium - an underground complex where they buried the Apis bulls in massive stone sarcophagi. It's an extra ticket, but an interesting site very different than the others in the area, and again with very few visitors.
The Mastaba of Ti - Last time I was there, there was no guard and literally no other visitors. It has some of the best preserved Hieroglyphics, including the original coloration. It is one of the only sites I'm aware of where original green coloration still exists.
Some of the other locations on site are also worth visiting, but you won't miss them as they are more common.
You'll likely either need to self drive, take a taxi, or get a small group tour to get to these sites even though they are in the same complex. A knowledgable Egyptologist would be useful, although there are now quality multilingual signs with at least an overview of each site.

Great Sphinx

At over 240 feet long and 66 feet high, it’s a wonder that this mysterious sculpture was carved from a solid limestone block.

Reviewed By David G

Everything about this site fascinating! You can get wonderful photos early morning when not many tourist around, beautiful place in history! Lots of gift shops outdoor along the way. Safe and friendly people everywhere but lots of hustle by horse n buggy taxis to get you to ride to pyramids.. Walking is easy to pyramids but you need taxi to catch a camel for a 30 min ride for great at a distance to capture pyramids in background.

Pyramids of Giza

Perhaps the most recognizable among the Seven Wonders of the World, the exact origin of these majestic pyramids continues to spark debate.

Reviewed By B G - Windhoek, Namibia

I've been to Egypt many times and have seen the pyramids with different friends and families but am always amazed. Haven't been to Egypt in more than 15 years and was stunned by the growth of the city. Pyramids are always worth seeing. Funny thing this time though was that many of the local tourists wanted to take photos with us. Very odd but probably harmless. Our guide said they were from the village and weren't used to tourists. We went with a tour guide and avoided the scammers. March is a good time to visit, not to crowded and not too hot.

Keops Pyramid

Reviewed By sschafe5 - Cairo, Egypt

This is likely one of the reasons you came to Egypt. The magnificence of the granddaddy, literally, of the Giza plateau pyramids is a wonder of the world. You cannot help but be impressed by this structure. It draws a sense of awe. It is a must-see on a visit to Cairo.
