The pyramids are truly monumental in scale, with the largest - Khufu's - constructed from over two million blocks. Optional entry into Cheops Pyramid for a glimpse of the interior structure. Lunch at a local restaurant ​Nearby sits the enigmatic Sphinx with the body of a lion and the face of a man wearing a royal head cloth, which workers may have based on King Khafre to guard his enormous funerary monument. About a thousand years after the Sphinx was built it was covered in sand until a young prince had a dream in which the Sphinx told him that if he cleared the sand away, he would become Pharaoh. This story of the Sphinx is told on the 'Dream Stela' that was placed between the Sphinx's paws by King Tuthmoses IV.​ Continue to Sakkara for a visit to the step pyramid, the oldest important stone building in Egypt. ​Transfer back to the hotel.
