I made sure to take in every second and was truly in awe of the ancient Egyptians! For an additional price, you can get an entry ticket into one of the three pyramids. Tip: if you are claustrophobic in the least, I recommend you don’t do this. The spaces can be tight! We went into the middle pyramid and enjoyed seeing how they looked from the inside. Afterward we took a camel ride into the Sahara to get the best view of the pyramids in the distance. 🐪
