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

Beside the pyramid, you must also stop by to this place. Have a closer look and snap some pictures in here. Surely you will have a great memory too when people or your loved ones ask you.

The Grand Sphinx is definitely worth seeing and is close to a exit so its normally one of the last sites to see before leaving the precinct. Some great images can be obtained in the surrounding areas

Accompanied by an archaeologist as our tour guide, we received amazing historical information that thrilled my 9 and 15 year olds. It was amazing and humbling to be amongst the ruins of a great people.

This is such a wonderful, magnificent historical statue in the world. Egypt is magical and gives you so much to be awed and more to wonder how long we’ve been on the planet. I’ve gone to see the Sphinx more than a dozen times. It...More

We didn't get to see much because it was under renovation and still had to pay the same. Injustice! So if this is really a must-see on your list, best to check if they are scheduled for renovation on our visit days. Good luck on...More

The Great Sphinx is very close to the three main pyramids at Giza and worth the short trip if you are going to the pyramids. The Sphinx itself is so well known, that you wont be blown away by it - but certainly should be...More

We were part of the Viking Pathways of the Pharaohs trip, so all accommodations were arranged for us. The hotels in Cairo at the beginning and end of the trip were wonderful.
