This is a bit away from the main pyramids in Giza but well worth a visit. They are the oldest, largest and best preserved in Egypt. The bent pyramid is unusual and you go into the red pyramid. The opening is about one and a half meters wide and one meter tall and the corridor is about 26 metres long.... More

We hired a driver and headed south from Giza. It was another amazing ruin and in some ways better than the great pyramid. Definitely recommend.

While visiting the pyramids of Giza, this is a part of the tour along with the Great Sphinx. if you are satisfied with the main three pyramids, you may skip this and spend more time at the museum.

Smaller than the three Great Pyramids, they are still very impressive and interesting to see. It takes a little walking, but well worth it.

Although not as large as the main pyramids at Giza, these are definitely worthwhile, and the interior of the red pyramid is similar to the interior of the pyramid of khufre (if you aren't comfortable here don't pay the 200pounds to enter the great pyramid of Giza).

The furthest away pyramid so good to start here early. steep climbs in/out of it can prove challenging but worth the effort. Incredible stuff

You must go there, it's simple! The pyramids of Giza are crowded. When, I went to this pyramid, I was almost alone. I went inside the pyramid, and it was quite an experience. I could take the photos in all the directions and nothing could block my view.
