Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Part of the Giza complex of pyramids and the Great Sphinx. Come with a guide who can explain to you the history and engineering and place these incredible structures within the scope of ancient Egypt.

Per my Tour Guide, there are 9 pyramids located in Giza, this is one of the 9. It is inot as famous as the first big ones, the Khufu and Khafre Pyramids. It is also smaller and less photogenic.

We briefly walked around it, took some photos and moved on.

I was just awestruck with the pymarids, and to think they were built so many years ago. I even climbed in the big pyramid

It is the smallest of the "family pyramids" and the death of the ruler preceded the completion. It was constructed of limestone and Aswan granite. The interior was not open during our trip.
in 12th century Saladin's son and the Sultan of Egypt attempted to destroy and demolish the pyramid but it proofed to be impossible. The vertical gash at its northern face is a reminder of the sultan's effort.

The smallest of the three Pyramids but is remarkable that is is built from Granite (a much harder stone then what was used in the first two pyramids that was quarried in Aswan). Menakure's tomb ends the First Kingdom's pyramid building period.

King Menkaure died before the pyramid was finished. You can see around the bottom courses made of red granite facing that weren't smoothed (probably halted in mid-work due to the death of the pharaoh).

During my stay in Giza in November and December 2020, we couldn't go inside the Menkaure (Mycerinus) pyramid, because it was closed. The others (Khafre and Khufu) were open for visitors (extra ticket for each). Upon entrance and before you leave the ticket office, check which pyramids are open or not on a big board. Remember that once you're inside you must bring your extra tickets with

Remember that you should buy extra tickets to get into the pyramids.

CURRENT PRICES (DECEMBER 2020)
- Giza Plateau (general admission): EGP 200
- The Great Pyramid (Cheops or Khufu) - interior: EGP 400
- The pyramid of King Khafre - interior: EGP 100

I really enjoyed going inside both of them and I don't regret it. It's a pretty different experience.

Questions? Send me a message. I’ll be more than happy to help you to make your trip to Egypt even better!

Menkaure was the son of Khafre and the grandson of Khufu. About 213 ft (65 m) tall, Menkaure’s pyramid is the smallest in the family trio. It was built in the 4th dynasty, sometime around 2510 BC. We got our best views on a sunset ATV tour from the desert side. Good thing, because in the morning it was so hazy, we could barely see Menkaure’s pyramid in the distance.

This is the smallest of the 3 great pyramids at Giza and is located just far enough away from the other 2 so that the crowds are usually considerably less. Of course there are still plenty of touts and camel hustlers, but that is to be expected throughout the area. Still a very impressive example of ancient Egyptian architecture.

It was included with my tour with Vantage Travel Egypt and really I enjoyed this tour very much!

The tour was private and very interesting! I love Egypt and hope to come back and visit it again in the near future.

The smallest of the three main Giza pyramids is the Pyramid of Mycerinus (Pyramid of Menkaure), completed at the end of the 26th century BC. Made of unusually large limestone blocks. Height of 62 meters and a base measurement of 108 meters. Definitely a wonder of the world. I am wondered how do the Egyptians build the pyramids 4.5 thousand years ago? Come here as early as possible otherwise it will be really crowded. Camel, chariot, or horseback rides are expensive, so if have time & you are fit, just walk.
