The bent pyramid and the red pyramid at Dahshur were the highlights of the pyramid sites for us. There was no one at the red pyramid, and I went inside to visit the chambers completely alone. It was eerie, scary, but once in a life...More

I never knew of existence of Dahshur pyramids. It just happened to me to see them from far distance when I was visiting step pyramid in Sakkara. So I talked to my driver to visit Dahshur pyramids too. When in red pyramid, there were only...More

Like everybody else, it was a breath of fresh air to see these pyramids without all the crowds and the hawkers. These are a ways out of Giza and transportation coordination is a must, but well worth the trek and you can go down a...More

These pyramids are away from the hustle and bustle that is Giza! You can take your time walking around each without anyone trying to sell you something. I did not go into the Red Pyramid...a tad claustrophobic...but those who did said it was great. I...More

These 2 pyramids are great to visit if you aren't looking for crowds or all of the people trying to hustle you out of your money. For the price to get in, it gives you access to go deep within the Red Pyramid. This crouching...More

If you want to experience peace and real mystic atmosphere of ancient Egypt, without the souvenir sellers, this is the right place for you. You will see just a local "bawab" on the entrance to the pyramid, and a few policemen. It is only one...More

In Dahshur about an hour from Cairo lie two beautiful pyramids, the red and the bent pyramid, both standing there for 4600 years and the red one at 99 meter high the first true pyramid. And you can go inside, through a very steep and...More

I. Am. Claustrophobic. But I just refused to let that stop me from a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You DO crawl down a narrow shaft backward, stretching your leg for the net cross member, but this is not to be missed. Once inside you can stand up,...More
