The more pyramids we saw, the more we became mesmerised by their beauty and grandeur. We are still amazed how they were built and there are still no answers.

Amazing. Everything you wanted and more. Each of the Pyramids is different than the others. Take in as many sites as you can. Photography is allowed in almost all areas if you are willing to pay a fee. Pay the fee! Cell phones are not...More

We visited these pyramids before we went to The Saqqara Pyramids. We were able to go inside one of the pyramids. You can really appreciate how these pyramids were built after viewing the inside.

The Bent and Red pyramids at Dahsur don't get many visitors, who tend to go for their more glamorous sisters at Giza. But I like the quiet here. And the proof that ancient Egyptians didn't let these few major bumps in the road to immortality...More

Is it worth entering? yes. If you are visiting the pyramids I recommend entering at least one. However it doesn't really matter which one, as they are all empty inside and the air is extremely stuffy.

this pyramid was just incredible, as they all are, I suggest you take time to see as many as you can, not just the giza ones, they have a story to tell and standing by them will take you back in time

We were told these pyramids opened for tourists some 6 years ago. Surrounded by the military base, but no worries. You can get all the way to the pyramid and climb on its stones. Recommend.

Can't clime them, beggers, including the police spoil the experience, it kills the spiritual aspect of being there.

This was amazing and one of my favourite parts of the trip. We did all of egypt without a tour guide and the only problem with the red Pyramid was getting through the security with our Uber! They need you to purchase a car pass...More

To be honest we went to Sakkara then Dashour from our hotel near to Giza Pyramids, and the whole trip took from 9am until around 3pm

If you want a guide with you, any of the main tour operators will take you. Often you have to specifically ask for Dahshur though and they'll add it on to a tour of Memphis, Saqqara, etc. It's no problem doing them all in... More
