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.

We didn't get out of our vehicle to visit this one, but still good to see as we drove past. A must visit to see the one of the wonders of the world.

Visited the Bent Pyramid, Red Pyramid at Dahshour a couple of days after the more familiar ones (Great Pyramid, etc.) but in hindsight I should have reversed the order because the early experiments were at Dahshour. First the falling down Black Pyramid, then up close and onto the scaffolding of the Bent Pyramid experiment (built by Sneferu). Then over to... More
