Reviews - What do customers think about POCKET BOOK OF THE PYRAMIDS (Travel Literature & Guide Books)?
A practical choice Apr 29, 2008
Some good photographs and diagrams, along with short narratives/explanations, in a truley pocket form ( it's about 4.5 x 4.5 x 1/2 in.) I think most, but the very serious, of travellers will find this book all they need, for information about the Pyramids at Geiza, Saqqara and Dahshour. (The Geiza Pyramids, the most famous, are at the western edge of Cairo. Saqqara and Dahshour are to the south of that. All three areas can be very easily visited in one day. Stop by the Mena House hotel, at the foot of the Geiza pyramids, for lunch and/or an ice cold brew, and try to tour the main (old) building. Tipping a porter got us a great tour! )
