Prepare to be mesmerized by the only surviving wonders of the ancient world: the majestic Great Pyramids of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, alongside the enigmatic Sphinx. This archaeological treasure trove also encompasses several cemeteries, a workers' village, and an industrial complex. As Cairo's most popular attraction, it enthralls and enchants thousands of visitors each year.

The Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu): Standing as the oldest pyramid in Giza and the largest in Egypt, Khufu's Great Pyramid reaches an impressive height of 146 meters.

Immerse yourself in the splendor of its architecture and explore the legacy of this revered ruler from c. 2558-2532 BC.

Pyramid of Menkaure (Mycerinus): Discover the smallest among the three main pyramids of Giza.

Dedicated to the goddess Isis, this magnificent temple tells the story of her quest to revive her beloved husband, the birth of her son Horus, and the mummification of Osiris. Originally situated on the island of Philae, it was later moved to Agilika Island to protect it from flooding caused by the construction of the High Dam. Dating back to Egypt's Greco-Roman period under Ptolemy II, this temple remains a testament to the enduring legacy of ancient Egyptian beliefs.

The High Dam: Marvel at the engineering marvel that is the High Dam, located on the northern border between Egypt and Sudan. Built to safeguard Egypt from the annual floods of the Nile, this rock-fill dam was completed in 1968 and stands at a remarkable height of 111 meters, with a length of 3,830 meters and a base width of 980 meters.

Explore the spiritual significance and mythology associated with these revered gods in this captivating temple.

The Temple of Edfu (Temple of Horus): Journey to the Temple of Edfu, dedicated to the avenging son of Isis and Osiris, Horus. Referred to as "Apollopolis Magna" by the ancient Greeks, this temple showcases the fusion of Egyptian and Greek mythology, as they identified Horus with their god Apollo. Rediscovered in the 19th century, the Temple of Edfu stands as one of Egypt's most well-preserved sites, having been buried under desert sands for centuries.
