Travel Blogs from Giza
We arrived at 3 am this morning. We were meet by Shariff and he transferred us to the Mena House Hotel.

The Sphinx was special. It hard to believe we could see the Pyramids from our hotel and some of the photos show the city in the background. There were no crowds because tourists have not returned after the 2 Revolutions against the respective governments. Our guide Mayar, went ...
