Great place to visit! There were practically no tourists there so very quiet. You don't have to pay extra to go inside the red pyramid although it's pretty boring inside. But the views outside are just spectacular! You don't get harassed here and I highly recommend making the trip!

For practical information see below. You might not expect it, as I didn't, but seeing your very first ancient Egyptian sight is likely to be a breathtaking emotional experience. Many tourists have experienced a frustratingly ruined first experience because of overwhelming harassment from touts of all kinds at the Giza pyramids, especially if not accompanied by a guide. Or as... More

Unlike the Sphinx and the Great Pyramids, these Pyramids are far from the riff raff of the city. Brilliant, awe inspiring and mysterious. A must do.

Dahshout is not scenicly beautiful however I was amazed when we climbed up and got inside the burial chamber. You will feel ancient and thrilled. Just make sure you have a very rwliable guide. I will highly recommend Egypt Tailor Made. They are literally 'The Best' so far. Egypt is totally safe with ETM.

Not the largest, not the prettiest, not the oldest, or even the best according to tourists, but well worth the extra travel and the climb inside. Since the tourist warnings, this is a rarely visited site; that is bad for the locals, the guards and the vendors, but good for tourists. The climb to enter is hairy for anyone not... More

We really enjoyed visiting these pyramids as there were only a handful of tourists here and no hassles. Shame for Egypt but good for us.

we went on a day trip to dahshour from our hotel who arranged the car and a guide. A guide is a must as he will take you around all the places which you might miss if you go on your own try and reach there before 10, so that you can beat the crowd and see the pyramids and... More

This pyramid was a lot quieter and going inside was absolutely stunning. There wasn't too many people at the pyramid selling stuff don't be intimidated they are just trying to make some money. Just a couple of 'La Shukrans' normally do the job.
