After visiting the great pyramids of Gizah we told our geat and kind taxi driver Ahmed to go to Saqqara but he drove us to Dashur instead because he liked it most. Was the best thing he could ever done! After de crowdy Giza we found ourselfs ALONE in the desert entering in the "Red Pyramid" with no one else. Was a geat experince!

Much less crowded than Giza and well worth taking the time to travel a short distance out of Cairo. From my point of view best area to explore pyramids.

This was the last pyramid at the end of a very long day but I am so glad we did it! You climb up a set of steps going along the front of the pyramid then make your way down about 60 m into the Pyramid. It was a such a good experience, I am still aching though!

The Step Pyramid, Bent Pyramid and Red Pyramid are so ancient! I also visited a must-see museum and tomb in this area. Awesome!

The Bent and Red pyramids at this site were magnificent. The desert - amazing. Unlike Giza and Saqqara, there were no crowds or tour buses. You could actually go inside the Red pyramid, not an easy thing to do given that the hall was small and steep, requiring you to walk bent kneed and hunkered over. This was my favorite stop!.
