A must visit even if the guide says don't. Worth the trek but be ready for aching thigh's the next day. But worth going there and having the pyramid to yourselves as there were hardly any tourist there when we visited. But would recommend.

It was an awkward climb down to see a dark, empty room that smelled awful. Might sound like fun to be inside a pyramid but it's really not that interesting

This was our second of three stops to see the major pyramids of Egypt, and we went with a tour guide whom we'd hired for the entire day. When we arrived there was practically no one, and there were no vendors trying to get us to buy statues or ride donkeys and camels. It was nice to not be hounded... More

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... More
