it is really important place, it is not less than the Giza pyramids area in it's importance, it is quite far place to visit, but really worth it. Specially going inside the red pyramid it very interesting experience.

Great site, and with current conditions in Egypt you may just have it to yourself. Makes for a fabulous lost-in-time experience.

This is a nice half day trip out of Cairo to get a close and personal experience of pyramids without tourists. Nothing beats the pyramids of Giza (and the Sphinx)...but this is a great way to be out in the desert, usually without other tourists, and see the bent and red pyramids.

This was an awesome pyramid. We hired a taxi to take us out there (and then drive us around all day) and there was no one there. We paid the fee (bring a student ID if you have one) and climbed down and up into the pyramid. When you get to the very end, there is an overwhelming ammonia smell,... More

Impressive and Awesome (Bent, Red and Black Pyramids) - equally amazing to the Great Pyramid site at Giza but in many ways better preserved and alot quieter as its not on the usual 'served on a plate' itinerary of many tour companies. Well worth the visit.
