The Giza Necropolis is an archaeological site on the Giza Plateau, on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt. This complex of ancient monuments includes the three pyramid complexes known as the Great Pyramids, the massive sculpture known as the Great Sphinx, several cemeteries, a workers' village and an industrial complex. It is located some 9 km inland into the desert from the old town of Giza on the Nile, some 25 km southwest of Cairo city centre. The pyramids, which have historically loomed large as emblems of ancient Egypt in the Western imagination, were popularised in Hellenistic times, when the Great Pyramid was listed by Antipater of Sidon as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is by far the oldest of the ancient Wonders and the only one still in existence.Arrange your visit to Touch Egypt - Guided Private Day Tour and discover more family-friendly attractions in Giza using our Giza road trip planner.

Excellent tourist place. It took few hours for sight seeing with horse ride. One needs to negotiate every deal offered. People have absolutely no hesitation for asking tips. Advisable to visit in later afternoon to enjoy both day and evening views. I visited during Christmas time, sunset was at around 4.45 pm.
Great place to visit, please ensure to visit the sun boat museum. It is amazing, the kids loved the pyramids and the whole area. Make sure to go with a tour guide for a full explanation and appreciation of history of you are a fan.
