I would have loved this place, had I not been there as a solo female traveler in the midst of the revolution of 2013 in the heat of midday all ALONE, with a warm bottle of water, a mango, and my guide who was wonderful, but about as old as Noah. I was unable to go inside the pyramids, and... More

The Bent Pyramid at Dahshour is definitely unique. Its one of a kind construction and structure lends it an aura and presence of its own, standing in a vast expanse of sand and desert. One ca go down into the deep, dark recesses of the pyramid via a long tunnel that culminates in a series of chambers. A descent down... More

a must-see sight ... especially entering the pyramid ... it is awesome and exciting ... make sure to have a tour guide to tell you about the rich history of the place.

Then Dahshur is the place to be. There are not a whole lot of tourists in the pyramids in Giza since the revolution, but in the Red Pyramid in Dahshur I was all alone. The guard at the entrance couldn’t be bothered to go down, he just handed me a flashlight and kept on smoking. It was such a fantastic... More

Not as well known, this pyramid is worth a look if you have time. Also, you can descend about 30 meters underground and see the chambers inside the pyramid. During our visit (family of 4 with kids ages 10 and 12) we were the only ones there until the end when another couple arrived. The guy sitting at the entrance... More

Great to see this historical place, but not the ost exciting place for a visit. You see it and then, get back in your car. Maybe better to see it on Nat Geo. :)

This was recommended by hotel, cost extra to get there, more to get in, should've spent more time at Giza pyramids instead. 100m climb to the middle of the pyramid's entrance, 100m steep descent into the pyramid, steeple room, more stairs up & over to next steeple room, crouch walk to tomb, absolutely nothing to see, turn around and do...

I was afraid to go in, so I sat at the entrance and chatted with the older fellow that takes the tickets. His English is broken, but he has great insight! My travel buddy went in. Be aware that when you get into the pyramid they will ask for a tip!
