You can see these pyramids as you drive from Cairo to Giza. Suddenly, you will see these incredible structures on the left side through buildings and thousands of cars and donkey carts. But, their true majesty is realized only when you stand among them.

The Pyramids of Giza are really quite incredible. Dont miss them, of course if you are like me, they are the reason to visit Cairo in the first place, but they are spectacular and truly magnificent.

Words are not enough to describe this site. Though hot and crowded come to mind , more seriously this is one of the wonders of the world and it is mind-blowing to think how this ancient civilization built the pyramids and the sphinx, just amazing.

You can see the pyramids, but only the first you see, there is A stone Path. The little pyramids you can only visit by camel. The Sfinx is also good to see. Enjoy!
