The Great Pyramid of Giza in Winter

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza pyramid complex. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and it is believed to have been built as a tomb for the Fourth Dynasty Pharaoh Khufu. We recommend Giza Pyramids take place on your Cairo day tours list.

The pyramid is made of limestone blocks weighing up to 2.5 tons each. The outside of the pyramid was originally covered in white limestone, which would have made it shine like a jewel in the desert sun. Today, only a few patches of this original casing remain to see with our Egypt classic tours.

The interior of the Great Pyramid is very simple, with corridors and chambers leading to the burial chamber of Pharaoh Khufu. The pyramid was probably built using around two million limestone blocks, which were transported from nearby quarries using boats and barges on the Nile River. Don’t leave the Giza Necropolis without taking a photo with the statue of the great Sphinx in Giza.

Abu Simbel Sun Festival Tour

Abu Simbel Sun Festival Tour

The Abu Simbel Sun Festival is a bi-annual festival that takes place at the splendid shrine of Ramses II in the south of Egypt. On 2 days of the year the main part of the shrine is lightened by the sun. For a brief span of time as the sun completely lines up with the generally masked interior, light is shed on the seated figurines of Ramses II (pharaoh), Ra (sun god) and Amun (king of the gods). Only the figurine of Ptah, stays in the shadows. This festival has been taking place for more than 3,200 years. Domestic tourists, international travelers and locals gather before sunrise to see the lighting as the sun rises & cuts through the shadows of the shrine’s inner compartment. To get to the heart of the temple tourists must first stroll through the remarkable entrance with its grandiose façade of colossal figurines. You will arrive into the grand hall enclosed by 2 treasury rooms & through to the Hypostyle Hall with adorned pillars & bas-reliefs embellishing the walls. A second pillared lobby guide to the sanctuary where the 4 sculptures are seated & the crowd stands two-people deep from the exterior walls to let the sun get through the interior.
