We visited these pyramids after visiting the main ones in Giza and we were glad we did. They're much quieter and have far fewer tourists so you get more of an idea of what they're like. The one we went inside was so interesting -...More

Get away from the Giza pyramids: at Dahshour you get two fabulous pyramids almost to yourself. I was able to climb down into the Red pyramid: no extra entrance charge, and for 1/4 of an hour had the inside of a pyramid to myself. Priceless.

Very cool pyramids. Steps inside the pyramid is a bit tricky so good shoes is a must. The steps outside are good.

Free entry and literally empty in the morning for great pics! Not that far from Giza and did this first. Giza is definitely much bigger(wow) and more crowded.

Very peaceful location, great if you've had a bit much of the Cairo hustle & bustle. I was there at about 9am & it wasn't too hot there was no one else visiting. The guards expect a tip & get upset if what you give...More

After visiting the Giza pyramids and the becoming a fan, you should look towards Dahshour. The pyramids here are a bit away in the desert and therefore very calm. I took a tour and saw 2-4 persons in total. The interior of the red pyramid...More
