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... read more

If looking for great trip, ask in Emo Tour for Ahmed and his driver Tomsi. They both are the best you may find in Egypt. I can confirm it after having 7 private tour last week, and had the opportunity to be taken by them to Dahshur, Sakkara, Memphis and Giza pyramids.

On a private tour. Daughter is student archaeology. Went inside that enormous heap of stone. Very interesting to see how the pyramid was built: the corridor, vaults... Quite difficult access: not for elder people...

Our kids had insisted that we actually go into one of the pyramids. Our tour guide had recommended that we went into the Dahshour instead of the Giza pyramids. Great advice!

The Red Pyramid, Bent Pyramid and the Black Pyramid. Just more of the ancient wonders of Egypt to explore. I went inside the The Red Pyramid. You have to climb the stairs up the side of pyramid to get to the entrance, then travel down a long, dark, narrow passageway way to get to the bottom of the pyramid. You... More

You have to go inside the pyramid, go down through 70 meters, go up again inside, stepping wood stairs,like in the movies, and enjoy the space plenty of a huge symbolism...You will not regret the experience... You will feel a characteristic smell... Take a lantern with you to enjoy the inside...
