Try not to miss this pyramid during your Egypt trip and you will be amazed by the two tunnels. It will really help if you will have an egyptologist with you.

We commenced our tour at Dahshur. It was wonderful to see where the pyramids began. This site is often not visited so you may have the area all to yourself. Don't forget to enter the red pyramid. This is included in your ticket price.

Such a well preserved pyramid, and it's been kept beautiful by remarkably diligent restoration efforts.
