Time to Visit Egypt

We visited the Red Pyramid and the Bent Pyramid. There was no one else at the sites. Bed prepared for a lot of walking. Definitely, if you are in Egypt these should be visited.

We were the only visitors to the pyramids at this time. We went inside the Red Pyramid, which our guide said was the same as the better known ones at Giza. There's not much to see inside, but it has to be done.

We went on this trip to Dashour with EMO Day Tours our guide was Ahmed he was an amazing guide. I highly recommend you visit this Pyramid site and travel with EMO and ask for Ahmed as your guide. Its not full of tourists and its a bit out of Giza but its so worth it. I promise you will... More

The Dahshur pyramids are visited much less than the ones at Giza, but I'm definitely glad I went. There was one couple leaving as I arrived, so I had the place to myself - no swarms of tourists or people trying to sell you things. You can go inside the Red Pyramid here free of charge. There's not much to... More

The Dashur pyramids were almost deserted when we visited. At the Bent Pyramid we had only bored and lonely policemen for company and when I went into the Red Pyramid I had the place all to myself - by far the best way to visit any pyramid.

Not far away from Giza, there's Dahshour, where there are 2 pyramids: the so called bent pyramid and the red pyramid. This place is out of the usual tourist circuit, but it's definitely worth it. The red pyramid was built by KIng Sneferu (4th dynasty), and is the first true pyramid. There's a long stairway to the entrance, and then... More

The pyramid is really unique and less visited by tourists, really worth visiting. You won't bump into crowds or queue at the entrance. Getting into the pyramid requires some effort and agility as you have to climb few stairs half way up the pyramid and upon reaching the entrance take a deep breath of fresh air as you will have...

A visit to the pyramid field of Dahshur is a respite from the crowds and hawkers at the Giza pyramids. There were no more than a handful of tourists the day I visited the pyramids and I took my time enjoying these ruins in all their splendor. Th Red Pyramid mirrors the ones found in Giza and you can venture... More
