It is a once it a lifetime visit. To actual see something you have read about, seen photos of, seen on television and movies. I'm glad to see it been walled to prevent future damage.

We didn't have the time to see the night lighting show but heard great comments about it. We enjoyed the visit. One local vendor was very rude to us as we didn't want to buy him anything...

For me...I knew it was a massive structure but never fully grasped the presence of this amazing Sphinx. The history is even more fascinating 😍Each morning that I opened my window- the Sphinx was right there...guarding The Great Pyramids. I am so happy with my choice to book with EMO TOURS!

We visited the Giza pyramids complex which includes Sphinx. It's a great place to visit. Good to know the history attached to the Sphinx.

Google "kiss the sphinx" photos, or make your own. Known as the "Father of Terror", the Great Sphinx is getting his photo taken hundreds of times a day...at just the right angle...to appear he is kissing the person in the photo.
