About Egypt Tour

Among other things, Egypt holidays are primarily about visiting the pyramid complex in Giza, which is about 18 kilometre from the capital city, Cairo. Looming out over a plateau on the west bank of Nile is the ancient Egyptian pyramid complex, one of the world's most visited monuments and the greatest in the country. The Pyramids of Giza are dedicated to its three important pharaohs of which the smallest is the Pyramid of Menkaure built around 2510 BC. Only 213 foot tall, Menkaure is believed to be the fifth pharaoh from the Fourth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom. The subsequent is the Pyramid of Khafra, the second smallest structure built by the predecessor of Menkaure. He too was a pharaoh from the Fourth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt and also the one to build the Sphinx (around 2500 BC), the Sphinx Temple. The legendary Great Sphinx of Giza made of bedrock limestone is easily the world's oldest and largest (239 foot) statue representing a reclining Sphinx, a mythical creature with a human head and a lion's body, one who guards treasures. The greatest of all pyramids, the Cheops Pyramid or the Pyramid of Khufu is the oldest and one of the biggest buildings on earth. The pharaoh Khufu's architect was Hemiunu, his nephew, who planned the pyramid on a core of bedrock and added around 2.3 million hunks of limestone with each weighing up to approximately two and a half tonne.
