Overview

See the ancient necropolis of Dahshur on a private, 4-hour tour for up to 15 people that includes pickup and drop-off in Cairo or Giza. Learn about Egypt’s kings and funerary rites at this less-visited site, where you can take in the unique Bent Pyramid, Red Pyramid, and mortuary temple, with the option to descend a narrow stone tunnel into Sneferu’s burial chamber.
  • 4-hour, private Dahshur tour
  • See a historic necropolis without Giza crowds
  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
  • Travel by Wi-Fi-equipped, air-conditioned minivan
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
Begin with 9am pickup at your Cairo or Giza accommodations, then make the 1-hour trip to Dahshur in an air-conditioned minivan that’s Wi-Fi equipped. Upon arrival at the site, visit the Bent Pyramid, which towers 340 feet (104 meters) above the surrounding sand. This is the perfect place to imagine the pyramids as they once stood, as the Bent Pyramid is the only pyramid in Egypt that retains much of its polished, limestone cladding.
Continue to the Red Pyramid, whose original white limestone has worn away to reveal stones that glow red in the desert sunlight. Adventurous visitors can channel early archeologists and descend into Sneferu’s burial chamber: a narrow, 4-foot (1.2-meter) tall tunnel leads to the vaulted room (not suitable for those with asthma or claustrophobia).
Make the final stop of the day at Dahshur’s mortuary temple to find out how bodies were prepared for mummification, then see the pyramidions, decorative caps thought to have topped the pyramids when they were first constructed. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel at roughly 1pm.

Once again my tour guide was Michael what a great day he provided me with his knowledge and explanation of things was brilliant.
I have a bad back and he was great about taking his time so I didn't miss a thing.
Thank you Michael for a wonderful day and also emailing me the photo's you took many thanks

Le site de Dahchour sort de sentiers battu, peu visité par rapport à kéops à Guizé, pourtant cela vaut énormément le coup !!
Surtout que le visite de la pyramide est inclus dans le billet alors que c'est en supplément pour kéops
Nous nous sommes retrouvé seul sur le site ce qui était grandiose et aucun sentiments dinsécurité.

Les débuts de l'histoire égyptienne racontés par une guide érudite. Par contre, j'étais le seul touriste ! Quel dommage que ces sites ne soient pas davantage visités !
