I liked all three pyramids but Khafre really did it for me. I really enjoyed the original coat at the tip of it as it gave me a better idea of what they use to look like. A must do while in Cairo.

This is the only pyramid that retains a little of the smooth light-coloured cladding that once would have covered the entire structure. It gives you a good idea of what all three pyramids would have looked like. A must-see.

The centre of the 3 Great Pyramids, perhaps its the still mostly intact top that sets it apart. This pyramid was not accessible during my stay, where you could walk inside the other 2 pyramids of Giza.

You will be amazed at how close this is to Cairo, just turn 180 degrees to see traffic on the street! Turn back, empty desert and ancient pyramids! The site is very dusty and the peddlers are persistent. Wear sturdy shoes, wrap around sunglasses and...More
