Striking and bold under the blazing Egyptian sun, the six gigantic pyramids that comprise the Giza Pyramid Complex need to be seen first-hand to be properly appreciated. Dating back to the Old Kingdom (between 2686 and 2181 BC), the complex is also home to countless tombs, temples and curiosities, such as the Great Sphinx. Be sure to dedicate a day or two if you want to explore the whole site.
Be adventurous and enter the tiny tunnels that lead to the burial chambers, be it the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the Pyramid of Khafre or the Pyramid of Menkaure. Here you can see the product of Egypt's ancient rulers' obsession with the afterlife some 4,500 years ago, when they glorified themselves in stone with the help of cutting-edge ancient technology and great manpower.
The Pyramid Complex is located in the southwestern suburbs of Cairo, less than an hour drive away. To organise a trip, contact our concierge team on +20 2279 8000, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
