Our tour to the Pyramids
5 / 5
sara , 19 Apr 2023
I recently went on a day tour to the Pyramids of Giza and it was an absolutely amazing experience. From start to finish, everything was perfectly organized and I felt completely taken care of by the tour company. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and shared fascinating information about the history and significance of the pyramids. I was blown away by the sheer size and scale of the structures, and it was awe-inspiring to think about the incredible feats of engineering and construction that went into building them. One of the highlights of the tour was getting to go inside one of the pyramids. It was a bit claustrophobic, but totally worth it. The tour also included a visit to the nearby Sphinx, which was just as impressive in person as I had imagined. We had plenty of time to take photos and explore the site, and I never felt rushed or hurried. Overall, I would highly recommend this day tour to anyone visiting Egypt. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget, and I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to see one of the world's most iconic landmarks up close.
