“Outside it's big, inside it's amazing”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

An amazing place to visit, outside it's big, but more or less what you expect from the many images we've all seen before however it's quite an amazing experience to go inside, even moreso if you're lucky enough to be the only person in there as I was for a short time. At 200 Egyption pounds it's expensive but well worth it for what will be a life long memory.

“You can visit the inner chamber of this and many other pyramids”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The most dazzling pyramid inner chamber that can be visited by the general public would have to be that of Teti as Saqqara (see my review under Pyramid of Unas). And the most adventurous would be the Red Pyramid at Dahshour (see my review).

“A bucket list experience”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

At this time, there are fewer tourists visiting Giza. This makes it a great time to go! I got time in the kings chamber to tone, meditate and lie on the sarcophagus. The climb up to the chamber can be a walking meditation; it was very enjoyable for me. But I am short and fit. It could have been tricky for a tall person with no flexibility. Your body must negotiate through small spaces. That's half the fun! You are in one of the worlds greatest treasures, so be fully present and enjoy every second. A truly magnificent experience.

“unforgettable experience”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

You will be amazed by the size and the construction. I am sure there is still a lot to discover and know about this place. I managed to go inside …….. you must be there very early as they only allow 100 peers/day. Whether that is still the case? I mean standing in front is something , but inside you will understand the real amazing and colossal project this was.

A must see for every globetrotter. Skip the dozens of people selling souvenirs and you should be fine.
