“Feel like the only person there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I found Dahshur to be very interesting. It is about an hour's drive out of the city (due to traffic) but well worth it. I felt like the only person there especially when compared to the crowds at Giza. I highly recommend a day of tours with Dahshur, Saqarra, Memphis and Giza.

“A hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Dahshur pyramid is unique and less crowded! I strongly suggest taking a guide to be less bored with local merchants which are often aggressive and understand these well preserved constructions. Good physical condition is required to get in

“Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Not much to see except from the outside, but worth the visual. The drive to Dahshur is more interesting than actually getting there as you pass through what life along the rural Nile is actually like.
