I entered the pyramid!!

One of a kind opportunity - and it was quiet to boot! Lack of tourists increased the time I could spend in and around the pyramid! Come now - not later!

It was awesome to be there nearly alone. Quiet like you would assume it was when the pyramids were originally explored. Getting to go into the tomb alone was an awesome experience. Be sure to take the route through town so you can see how ordinary Egyptians live

It was amazing to enter the heart of a pyramid, breathtaking both metaphorically and literally, and it was even more enjoyable since it is way less crowded than the Giza plateau and the entrance inside the Red Pyramid was free. Definitely worth the time it took to get there and the entrance fee to the site.

Seen from a distance as part of the Giza plateau experience. The view is great, just to say that you've seen it in real life!

very different atmosphere from Giza, no touts or tourists when I visited. I even ventured inside the pyramid with the assistance of the pyramid guide. I don't like tight spaces but this one is worth it.

me and my two new friends organised this trip with a freelance guide. This was a daytrip we started round 08.00h. Best day to do such trips is friday, no traffic and you get there so fast and easy. Our first stop was at Saqqara museum, there is an interesting remake of the pyramid (miniatur)and how she looked like when... More

I was so pleased I made the effort to come out here. In many respects they are so much more spectacular than the main Giza pyramids due to their isolation. The journey there is a good chance too to see life outside of the city.

You can actually see this pyramid from Sakkara. It's the STORY about why it's misshapen that is the part you don't want to miss hearing. See it and move on. Have your guide tell you about it in the air conditioning.

No tourists were there when i visited. 40 LE to get into the site and that includes going into the pyramid! Great experience climbing up the side and then descending 65m into the belly. Not much in the way of things to see inside but you get an idea of the internal structure. Definitely not one to miss out on... More

Well worth a visit. The bent pyramid is a unique sight with interesting story and its repeat, the Red pyramid allows entry without additional ticket.
