The fact that I was staring directly at a monument that I've read about and seen pictures of was shocking and stunning to me. The entire environment was amazing. It felt as though I stepped back in time.

I personally loved the Sphinx a lot more than the pyramids. I cannot recommend making sure that you see this. From here you also get to see the pyramids. Best photo vantage point in my opinion.

This sandstone Sphinx is an amazing structure. A must see while in Giza. Just to be among the Great Wonders of the World is a good feeling.

Of all the sites I have visited in Cairo, the Sphinx is my favourite. Naturally, it is always busy and the access to it is crowded.

Amazing to see up close. Our tour guide Kareem Zohny took our picture kissing the Sphinx. You are not able to climb on it but it is awesome to see even at a distance.

We were part of the Viking Pathways of the Pharaohs trip, so all accommodations were arranged for us. The hotels in Cairo at the beginning and end of the trip were wonderful.

Does anyone recommend a travel agency for roundtrip transportation from the airport to the pyramids with a tour and with a hotel stay?
