Egyptian Pyramids 8 Day Tour - Day 2 Cairo Pyramids of Giza October 01 2017

Ahhh the amazing Pyramids of Giza. The feeling of standing next to the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx that you've seen in books, movies and documentaries was overwhelming. These pyramids are the last standing original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World to survive. The Sphinx, Guardian of the Giza Plateau, is dated around 2500 BC. The Great Pyramid was built by the 4th-Dynasty King, Khufu, between 2589-2566 BC. The two smaller pyramids were constructed by Khufu's successors, Khafre and Menkaure.

I paid to go inside the Pyramid of Menkaure, which was pretty cool.
