The Pyramids of Egypt Trips

A visit to the Egyptian pyramids provides a fascinating insight into a long-vanished world. The Giza pyramid site, compromising the Great Pyramids of Cheops (or Giza), Chephren and Mycerinus; the timeless and enigmatic Sphinx; and palaces and other monuments, was begun by Pharaoh Khufu around 2550 BC. This was when Egypt was one of the richest and powerful civilizations in the world. The Great Pyramid of Cheops is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the World, and these are some of the most magnificent man-made structures in history. 

Egypt's pharaohs expected to become gods in the afterlife, and to prepare for the next world they filled their massive pyramid tombs with all the things they'd need to guide and sustain themselves when there. To put the size of the pyramids into perspective, the Great Pyramid of Cheops is 138m in height and was the tallest human-made structure in the world until England's Lincoln Cathedral was completed in the 14th century. It's estimated that the pyramid's 2.3 million stone blocks each weighs between 2.5 and 15 tons. Experience the scale for yourself by joining one of The Pyramids of Egypt tours Exodus offers.
