It was one of my lifelong dreams - and it was simply overwhelming to be there, looking up at these huge monuments. An absolute must - for everyone - in their lifetime.

Spent the day at the plateau. It was warm in early June but magnificent. Went with Israel Tours and they did a great job.

Ticking off another 'bucket list' dream item - to see and experience walking across the sands and standing next to these iconic structures that have lasted the sense of time. Oh what stories they could tell ??

A must if you are visiting Cairo. Should also make the trip to Memphis and Saqqara. I would recommend simply paying for a picture on the camel vs taking the camel ride.

Great place to go in the evening, especially during the winter months. There is a man who has a tea and coffee (booth) or stand if you will just south of the pyramids and you can get there via horse back or on ATV's

The pyramids on the plateau are incredible - although everyone will have seen picutres of them, the reality is even more impressive. Book a guide and driver, it is a big site and a good guide really helps. The Sphinx is a busy part of...More

Having viewed (in-person) any of the historical wonders of the United States, the Great Pyramids are more magnificent than I could ever have imagined. I did not take time to guess how they were constructed (too many unknowns and theories). I simply absorbed the wonder....More
