The site includes the bent pyramid and the red pyramid (that you can enter). The entry is quite steep and there is little to see inside. I probably would not do it again.

The Red pyramid and the Bent pyramid are located about 30 mins drive from Cairo in the desert. They truly give you the feeling of the original pyramids and are visited by far fewer tourists. You can go inside the Red pyramid, quite a steep descent and not recommended if claustrophic, but very interesting.

The Great Pyramids are great, but everybody knows that, so you're surrounded by all of the tourists and salesmen. But at Dahshur, you get to see the one which failed to make the grade - the Bent Pyramid, which is beautiful despite its perceived failure - and the first one which did - the Red Pyramid. And you get them almost completely to yourself...

Giza pyramid is overated for sure in comparison to the bent pyramid! Here you pay less than Giza and you get the most out of the rest! To us, the journey to the tomb was our highlight moment. At first, it was abit of hiking up the stairs, and when you reach the entrance, it only goes DOWN and down. You might feel abit claustrophobic but I can assure you that it was definitely worth every penny! This area has practically no tourist buses, and camel man chasing after you for rides! We were at peace with the desert and the pyramids! I have nothing but positive feedback about this beautiful place. HIDDEN GEM and absolutely breathtaking! One thing though, there s a strong ammonia smell inside the pyramids, but that is to prevent snakes from crawling in. (Thats what our driver said) enjoy!!!
