Giza Plateau Tours

47 Reviews
One of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Great Pyramids of Giza are located just outside the fringes of Cairo on the the Giza Plateau. This complex of ancient monuments includes not only the mysterious pyramids but a workers’ village, plus the distinctive symbol of ancient Egypt, the Great Sphinx, which is situated at the base of the Giza Plateau. 

The Great Pyramid of Khufu is the grandest in the complex, with the two smaller structures, Khafre and Menkaure, nearby. To the east of these there are three small graves – the tombs of Khufu's wives and sisters.

There are two entrances to the complex, one via Pyramids Road at the foot of the Great Pyramid of Khufu, and another below the Sphinx via the village of Nazlet as­Samaan. (Most visitors enter the site from Pyramids Road, as this is where buses from the city stop.)

Practical Info

The Giza Plateau is easily accessible from central Cairo, with taxis available at a reasonable rate and CTA (Cairo Transport Authority) buses running regularly to the pyramids from the city.
