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.

  • Ever since I was a kid I wanted to visit the Pyramids of Giza. The views are breathtaking and really do not do justice to the tremendous experience. I highly recommend!

  • Naglaa and her husband drove us round Giza and Cairo for two days on a tour and it’s safe to say we would have been helpless without them! Taking us to the Great Pyramids, Sphinx, Stepped Pyramid...

  • Its the greatest wonder of the world. So far nobody has been able to establish as to how these were made. Its a MUST visit tourist location. Its simply amazing, specially if you manage to go inside and take pics. Souvenirs are also available there, must bargain for lowest price.
  • Amazing experience. The pyramids are so much bigger than you realise and can only be fully appreciated when you are standing right next to them. Would really recommend going inside for exploration as a once in a lifetime experience. Walking through hallways that were built so many thousands of years ago hits different.
