I. Am. Claustrophobic. But I just refused to let that stop me from a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You DO crawl down a narrow shaft backward, stretching your leg for the net cross member, but this is not to be missed. Once inside you can stand up,...More

Although not part of the Giza great pyramids, this one is a great pyramid also. The design is highly unique from all pyramids in the world.

Lots of people visit Giza but Dahshur really is where you go to see where the designs were perfected. Yes, there are only the Bent and the Red Pyramid to see and it's further away than the Giza Pyramids that are more famous but seeing...More

The bent pyramids is impressive, and just beside is Kheops' father pyramid, the first one they build correctly. It is just like the Kheops one but smaller, and you can have great photo opportunities because there are almost no visitors around, compared to the pyramids...More

This was a good tip to see two very old pyramids that are much older than the more famous ones all tourists see in Cairo. They are only about 18 miles out of town but as you will find out this can take over an...More
