The largest of the pyramids in Giza. You may purchase a ticket and crawl your way inside into the King's Chamber. The experience is hot and it is pretty impossible not to have claustrophobia here. Very memorable but crawling inside requires some stamina. The highlight of the pyramid is the view you get of it from outside.Recommended for:

Amazing visually. It's not as mystical as it's portrayed in the movies because it's right by the city and there are plenty of sales people trying to get you to buy stuff or rent their camels. Some are nicer than others. Some renters don't worry too much about your safety. You can't climb the pyramids since they're guarded by military patrols. I'm glad I got to see this world wonder but I don't need to come back.Recommended for:

The actual pyramid is smaller than I thought. The only way to get into the pyramid is via a narrow tunnel. Due to the hot weather it is not pleasant to get into it as it is full of sweating smell.

This is one big structure - and they built it by hand - impossible, the aliens did it. Seriously, to walk up and see how large the blocks of limestone are and think of how they did this is incredible. This is the largest of the pyramids here and is the oldest of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. Don't take a ride on the camels here, they will try to rip you off.Recommended for:

Totally the first place to visit in Egypt (maybe on the Earth)! Take a horse or a camel and experience riding around the greatest artificial wonder of the world. Golden sand, burning sun, hot desert wind, chatty guide - nothing will matter near those massive pyramids.
Don't forget to enter inside the pyramid if you would have a chance (don't mind long line near the entrance).
Touch the ancient world - visit Pyramids of Giza!Recommended for:

La contruccion mas alto del mundo antiguo y la unica de las 7 maravillas del mundo antiguo que todavia quedan en pie, no merece mas explicaciones. El solo hecho de llegar y contemplar su magnitud estremece. Se puede visitar su interior, pero no permiten fotos, aunque nadie te controla. La subida es empinada, baja y muy calurosa un dato para bajar hazlo a la inversa, es decir, como si estuvieras subiendo la escalera, pero en reversa.

It's more beat-up than I'd expected, covered with rubble but ou can climb to the top for a great view. If there's no smog, you can see the turquoise Med, the tall buildings of Cairo and a trail of different pyramids that leads off to the South. When one is right at the base, there is a MASSIVE feeling about this pile of rubble. I didn't pick up on any odd electricity but I heard that it is too subtle for a tourist to feel.
Stay at The Mena house Hotel, next door if you want to soak it in.
