TripAdvisor Reviews Three Pyramids Cairo
Travel Blogs from Cairo
Our flight to Cairo was at at 6am. Because it was an international flight, you have to be at the airport at least 2 hours early and because we were staying quite a distance from the airport, we had to get up before 3am.

Our first glimpse of the Great Pyramid is that of a giant, (certainly well beyond my expectations of size), orange shadow. There’s two more pyramids in there behind it somewhere but they’re hidden from view by the curtains of dust. We step outside the van and even the air is cold at the absence of the sun.
