As wonders of the ancient world go, the Pyramids of Giza are right up there! Throw in the Sphinx and you’ve got an unmissable experience. The site has two entrances and the one opposite the Guardian Guest House is more ramshackle and chaotic – you buy your ticket via a small window in a wall and there’s no sense of a queuing system – but once you’re through, the view you’re greeted by is far the more impressive (although extra tickets for the likes of tomb entry can be bought via the other entrance). Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure will take your breath away as you approach; their size and familiarity overwhelm with a sense of scale and history. You’ll get hassled for a camel ride and knick knack sellers will be after you, but just keep looking at the marvels and let the awe inspire.
