Seeing the Pyramids of Egypt was one of my life long dreams. I was getting tired of seeing too many documentaries on PBS and Discovery Channel on the Pyramids. We finally decided to make the trip this April, 2000. We bought a guided tour from Embassy of Egypt in Houston. The tour included nine days of dedicated escorted tour only for two of us of Egypt with accommodations in Five/Four star hotel.
What I found out is that Pyramids are only one of the many things you can see in Egypt. The whole country is full of wonders from North to South. There are couple of interesting facts I discovered on my trip to Egypt. Number One... The Country of Egypt would starve to death if they did not have the Pyramids and Number Two.... There are more Tour Guides than the tourist.
The Pyramids of Giza is one of the seven wonders of the world. Today they are the only "wonder" to have survived the ravages of time... almost intact.
The great Pyramids of Giza was built during the period 2085-2011 BC. The Giza pyramids... Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus were a Grandfather, father, son construction. Cheops pyramid was built with around 2.3 million limestone blocks, each weighing an average 2.75 tons - 6.8 million tons in all. Originally 482 feet high, the loss of its shiny outer casing lowered it to 449 feet.
