Dahshur was our first stop on our first day in Cairo. I read, that you’re almost alone here, so I wanted to have that special feeling of doing something a little “off the beaten path”. We enjoyed our visit very much - only 1 other...More

Not many tourists here. The bent pyramid is so interesting, and the red pyramid has free entry to climb down into the tomb. Dont go down if you are claustrophobic

The site includes the bent pyramid and the red pyramid (that you can enter). The entry is quite steep and there is little to see inside. I probably would not do it again.

The Red pyramid and the Bent pyramid are located about 30 mins drive from Cairo in the desert. They truly give you the feeling of the original pyramids and are visited by far fewer tourists. You can go inside the Red pyramid, quite a steep...More

The Great Pyramids are great, but everybody knows that, so you're surrounded by all of the tourists and salesmen. But at Dahshur, you get to see the one which failed to make the grade - the Bent Pyramid, which is beautiful despite its perceived failure...More
