Tips for visiting the Great Pyramid of Giza

The Great Pyramid of Giza, along with the other smaller pyramids and surviving relics of ancient Egypt, are located at Al Haram, Nazlet El-Semman, in the Al Giza Desert, about 35 minutes' drive outside of Cairo. There are lots of easy ways to get to the pyramids, including driving yourself or buying dedicated Giza Pyramid tickets that include a guided tour and/or transport.

Your Giza Pyramid tickets grant you access to the outdoor Giza complex, where you can freely explore the perimeter of all three pyramids and the iconic Sphinx, and get up close to these magnificent ancient structures.

For an extra fee paid on-site, you can enter the inside of the pyramids, and creep through some of the dark, narrow passageways that once lay hidden and abandoned for thousands of years. That is, if you are brave enough to disregard the legendary curse of the pharaohs...

Historians believe that the Great Pyramid of Giza was commissioned as an elaborate necropolis for the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian pharaoh Khufu, making it one of the largest and most extraordinary burial chambers in the world. It's easily the most impressive and definitely the most grandiose memorial structure ever built by human hands.

The Great Pyramid of Giza has transfixed all who have looked upon its grandeur for millennia. Your Giza Pyramid tickets will get you right up close to this timeless relic of antiquity.

Nobody has ever been managed to lift the Great Pyramid of Giza onto suitably enormous weighing scales, but thanks to the wonders of mathematics and educated guesswork, it is estimated that the Great Pyramid of Giza weighs approximately 5,750,000 metric tons, with each of the 2.3 million stone blocks that make of the pyramid weighing about 2.5 tons each.

How the ancient Egyptians managed to so precisely construct such a gigantic structure, out of such huge building blocks, is another question altogether!

The exact nature of how the Pyramids of Egypt were built, and by whom, is a secret somewhat lost to the sands of time. While there are lots of outlandish conspiracy theories about extra-terrestrials project-managing the pyramids' construction, the truth is actually more down to Earth, but much more impressive.

What surviving historical record there is points to a vast number of manual laborers – both paid and enslaved – that were used to build the pyramids over the course of about 20 years. It stood as the tallest manmade structure for 3,000 years after its construction, and the great Pyramid of Giza remains one of the wonders of the world.

Whether you are all-in on the alien pyramid scheme theory or have more faith in the engineering acuity of our ancient ancestors, your Giza Pyramid tickets will grant an experience that feels out of this world!

Wadi El Rayan is an Egyptian nature reserve 65 km southwest of Faiyum city, with two unique claims to fame: it's home to Egypt's only waterfalls, which were formed over time as one man-made lake/water reservoir flowed into another, and is one of the few places left in the world that's home to the rare slender-horned gazelle. The nature reserve also features an abundance of other native wildlife that flocks to the area in search of oasis vegetation.
