About the attraction

Welcome to the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the World! These pyramids are the largest in Egypt and are located on the Giza plateau near Cairo. They took nearly twenty years to build, and all by hand. To date, the specifics of how these pyramids were constructed remain a mystery to humankind- as do the stories of excavation and inhabitants. Built by the Pharaohs, the three pyramids are essentially tombs or a necropolis - but they are as much about how the Egyptians lived as they are about how they died. Three pyramids, and you can take a horseback tour to ride into the desert to see them if you don't wish to walk. There is also a small museum attached to the pyramids, and it houses the Khufu's solar boat as well. Spend enough time exploring both the interiors of the pyramids as well as the exterior complex, and if you like taking pictures, the sun leads to some very interesting hide and seek patterns on the pyramids for you to capture.
