Visiting the Bent Pyramid was the best idea we had that day. So much to learn from ancient attempts to construct the first Pyramids. What an experience. Loved it. We arrived with Private Driver/Guide in Van, because I heard the road to the pyramids was very bumpy and that 's exactly how it went. Quite a ride, but unforgettable experience.... More

The place is much more for the people who are much interested in the architecture monuments. The tourist who have a little time you should go for the main Pyramids in Giza which are more developed and close to Cairo.

Very interesting Pyramid. A learning experience for the ancient Egyptians. Use Goshen Travel Egypt when traveling in Egypt.

You need to visit all the pyramids as part of a tour to take them all in and have a guide to talk you through then all.

Climb inside the Red pyramid! Hurts your legs for a bit, but totally worth it. Observing the interior architecture is equally interesting as the exterior.

This isolated area not far from Giza is the site of the first ever built geometric pyramid. You must see inside the Red Pyramid...also, the bent pyramid is a site to behold. We loved this site!

The Bent and the Red Pyramid were more interesting than any of the Great pyramids and you get less hassle here. All you need is a taxi driver who would take you to Dahshur. A little kid sat at the entrance of the red pyramid, giving electric tochlights to people who wish to enter. My tip to you is to... More

Absolutely loved the 'red pyramid.' Nobody around, pay the guy 5LE to take your camera in. Went twice and have the best pics! Less touristy than Giza and no hawkers so you can enjoy your time there.
