If you are looking for an exclusive holiday filled with history, speculate, and a great sense of power, then you should visit to see great pyramids at Giza. The Pyramids at Giza are the most prominent architects of ancient Egypt. These huge stone structures were built around 4500 years ago on a rocky desert plateau close to the Nile
There are three Great pyramids at Giza, each of which once had an adjoining mortuary temple. The 'great' pyramid itself is truly an astonishing work of engineering skill - for over four thousand years, until the modern era, it was the tallest building in the world. The Great Pyramid at Giza is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now El Giza, Egypt which is one of the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Great Pyramid at Giza was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years that today scientists can't be sure how the pyramids were built.

Though the three Great Pyramids are the most famous and renowned monuments at Giza, its incredible constructions are some of the most amazing monument in the world, stretching high into the sky and built of very big blocks of stone, they are still standing several millennia after they were first built. There are several pyramid fields to see and explore in Giza that includes the world famous Sphinx, which stands guard over the plateau and which offers tourists an amazing sight.
