  1. Interesting blog post. I plan to visit Egypt too in the coming year or so.
    So, don’t go through the pyramid maze inside? What exactly did you do? Just go for a walk.?
    And I think those pyramid lights are tacky and cheapen the whole thing.
    As regards the Sphinx, you might like to know that the head and neck were remodelled from a prior sculpture to create the face of the Sphinx. The body itself is significantly older. During the Egyptian Civilization, the sphinx was already ancient, and most of the body buried in sand.

    1. Hey Liam,

      happy to hear that you’ve liked the post. Going inside the “maze” is definitely not a must-see. We expected to see some nice stone carvings, some ornaments or at least a sarcophagus, which, unfortunately, was not the case. So when being at the site, we think it’s best value for money to just have a walk around the pyramids and maybe walk up until to the viewpoint.

      In case you are interested in stone carvings with hieroglyphs we would rather recommend to go to Luxor. For various sarcophagus and mummies, check out the Grand Egyptian Museum (it should open late 2023) or the Egyptian Museum in Cairo (the place we’ve been).

      By the way: We took your comment as a reason to update the post. Also we included your info regarding the remodelled Sphinx head. Thanks for that 🙂

      We wish you happy travels and a lot of fun in Egypt!
