The whole complex is beautiful and easy to get to with a tour group or cab. Due to recent unrest in the area, the whole complex was practically deserted during our visit. In some cases, this can mean that you are mobbed with touts and...More

Dahshur consists of the Bent Pyramid, the Black Pyramid and the Red Pyramid. It presents the most authentic pyramid experience as you are able to wander without camels, horses and touts. This is the Egypt of 30-40 years ago, and it is delightful.

Dashur is a great attraction to hit up while visiting Egypt. There is very few other tourists or peddlars. You could even call the trip peaceful which says a lot if you have visited sights in Egypt. We went down into the pyramid which was...More

The Pyramid at Dahshur was the most impressive as it has three rather larger chambers inside unlike the Giza Pyramids. The ony downer is the natural occurring amonia gas encountered while wondering around inside.

The Bent and Red pyramids were surprisingly big. With few people here we could contemplate the immensity and age of these wonders. Highly recommend going here. Just seeing Giza is not enough.

I didn't go to the bent pyramid but saw it from far away. The story about how it was built was very interesting. Basically, this was a product of miscalculation. According to the story though, there was never a Pharoah buried inside (the one who...More

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.
