Exploring Egypt’s Ancient Pyramids: A Complete Guide

Egypt is among the most intriguing places on earth. With a vibrant and fascinating culture, it is an ideal destination for many.

I finally had the chance to go on a “sampler platter” tour around Egypt and see the famous Giza Pyramids. They’re the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing, and I’ve wanted to see them in person.

The region is known as the Giza Complex, which includes the Giza Necropolis, Sphynx, Pyramids, and the Valley Temple of Khafre.

Around 5,000 years ago, Memphis was the capital city of Egypt, and Giza served as the burial grounds of the royals. The three pyramids were built in honour of their King. The earliest one, the Pyramids of Giza, was built between 2613 and 2498 BC. There are many layers of significance surrounding them.

The pyramids are situated on the west bank of the Nile River because this is the side where the sunsets. Many thousands of years ago, Egyptians believed that the living should be on the east side, where the sun rises, and those who died should reside on the opposite side.

Of course, there is no doubt that you must not forget that the Pyramids of Giza can be an incredible attraction. Therefore, I suggest visiting at a time that isn’t busy.

Going during winter can help you avoid the crowds (and the summer months can be extremely hot!). No matter when you decide to visit, begin your day early. Go to the Egyptian Museum early to get up.

The tour buses are on the road from 9:30 until 10:30 each morning. They go straight to the pyramids, so you can wander around the museum while viewing them. When you’re done with the museum, the pyramids should be cleared and ready to be explored.

Giza Plateau opens from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day (it is extended until 5 p.m. at this time of year). It is a must to take the entire day to explore, so be sure to arrive early.

Be aware that Cairo is a heavily polluted city. It is cleared slightly later in the day, and you’ll be able to enjoy a more immersive experience of the pyramids when you don’t get there early.

Exploring Egypt’s ancient pyramids can be an unforgettable adventure, so for optimal results and ease of access, it’s best to use expert guidance. Egypt guided tours offer in-depth knowledge and convenience when visiting iconic locations such as the Great Pyramid of Giza or the Sphinx and lesser-known treasures that may remain unexplored otherwise. Experienced guides ensure everything gets noticed by sharing fascinating tales and insights; these tours make your pyramid exploration seamless and memorable!

There are two entry points to the Giza Complex: 

One near The Great Pyramid of Giza and the other next to The Sphinx. If you’re travelling by bus, it is recommended that you go through the entrance/exit located near the Great Pyramid.

In other words, it doesn’t matter what you pick since you’ll be able to discover the whole area.

There are bound to be crowds, particularly in the areas closest to the main entry points. You should take a walk away from the path. The pyramids can be appreciated more profoundly when you can find peace and tranquility. There are also some fantastic angles and uncrowded landscapes where you can take photos.
