All about the trip
The Great Pyramid of Giza, also called the Pyramid of Khufu and the Pyramid of Cheops, is the oldest and the largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now El Giza. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world and the only one to remain largely intact. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb for the fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu, known as Cheops in Greek. The construction took 14 to 20 year period, concluding around 2560 BC.
You will be picked up from your hotel in Cairo to discover first the Pyramids of Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinos. We will then proceed to visit the Great Sphinx, with the head of a pharaoh and a lion’s body that dates back to the time of Chephren. This Sphinx was made to be the guardian for the Pyramids of king Chephren.
Our tour also includes a visit to the Valley temple which belongs to the Pyramids of Chephren. The temple served two purposes. First, it was used for the purification of the mummy of the king before its burial and second, it was used for the mummification process.
After the tour, we will transfer you back to your hotel in Cairo.What Wikipedia Says
