Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos
Of course, no trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to the three Pyramids at Giza!
I was so looking forward to seeing them that the first time I came into line of sight of them was an unforgettable experience! They were much more huge than I had expected. My guide told me that the largest of the three has about 2-3 million stones, each weighing about a 1000 tonnes!
Each one of them is supposed to have been covered with a limestone casing, which must have given them quite a smooth experience. but now, only one of the three has evidence of this casing, that too only at the top.
Tickets to enter the pyramid area were 40 EGP per person. Ticket counter opens at 8 in the morning - be there at 8 AM or visit about 2-3 PM if you want to avoid the busloads of tourists
