Pyramids of Giza Travel Guide: 440 reviews and 1,433 photos

The only survivors of the Ancient Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids are themselves a top destination in Egypt.. Gone are the Hanging Gardens of Nebuchadnezzar, the Colossus of Rhodes, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. The only ones standing are the Pyramids. In fact they are one of the oldest tourist attractions of the world. All sort of theories have been brought forth about who build the Pyramids but whatever the final conclusion is , the fact remains that the Pyramids were and still are considered a grand feat.

Ask anyone about Egypt Egypt and the first thing that comes to their mind is almost always these amazing structures - they are indeed the very symbol of Egypt.

    Wish I could visit the pyramids! But I think the heat and the touts might spoil the experience for me.

    Hopefully we will make it early Oct'10. Taking tour of Turkey with option of 3 continents cruise which includes day excursion to Pyramids from Port Said. However tour coy dates not definite, depends on bookings.

    One of those places I'd really like to visit - touts or no touts! Even more attractive on a cold windy winter's night, when I looked at the webcam and saw that it's 41.5 there ... well, maybe that's a bit too much.

    Thanks for bringing back sweet memories about this magnificient place! Thanks for a link to a webcam. Really Pyramids deserve a separate VT-page. Good idea of the tip "The first time I saw the pyramids for real". I'll take it as a good example.

    Definitely one of the World's Wonders! I'll never forget my Pyramid and Sphinx visit over 30 years ago - or my camel ride! Too bad I hadn't heard of the Mena Palace Hotel back then, but I couldn't have afforded it anyway!
