Once in the Pyramid complex at Giza you will have access to this, the second largest and tallest of the pyramids. Our guide pointed out that only a small portion of the exterior remains (at the top). I recommend going with a guide to this site as you learn so much more about what you are looking at. Our guide... More

There is no better place to experience this for yourself than on the roof terrace at the Pyramids Overlook Inn which is in perfect alignment.... More

While visiting the pyramids of Giza, this is a part of the tour along with the Great Sphinx. if you are satisfied with the main three pyramids, you may skip this and spend more time at the museum.

Breathtaking experience, once in a lifetime must see. Visit early morning as can get very crowded. We used Ramsside Tours to take us around, highly recommended.

In most pictures this appears to be the largest of the three Great Pyramids, but it's simply set on higher ground and still has the top in place.

You may have it in your head how gigantic these are, you do not. Once you stand at the base, then get back to me! Jaw dropping, and a must-see in life.

Must see along with the other pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx. Steep climbs in and out in very cramped space can prove challenging

Khafre's Pyramid or originally known as Chephren's pyramid is actually the second largest of the three famous Giza's pyramids. It is three meters shorter than the largest - Khufu's [Cheops] pyramid. However it is built on higher ground [10 meters] to give this effect. As part of the pyramid complex it can not be missed on a visit. You are... More
