The Pyramids of Giza complex is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that remains in one piece.

The Pyramids are not decorated inside, and there are no treasures or mummies. You can visit them inside by purchasing a separate ticket. Although it is safe to tour the pyramids inside, you must be relatively fit since you go through steep stairways and low passages; some people also find it claustrophobic.
The tour continues to Khafre’s Valley temple and the Great Sphinx. This famous monument carved out of limestone has the facial features of a man but the body of a lion.
After lunch at a local restaurant, visit the archeological site of Sakkara. This vast necropolis is known for the Step Pyramid of King Djoser. The Sakkara Pyramid is considered the oldest pyramid in Egypt.
