Part of a World Heritage Site, Pyramids of Dahshour include several structures built between 2613 and 2589 BCE. Easily accessible from Cairo, the complex features a number of pyramids commissioned by the Pharaoh Sneferu. On a tour of the secluded archaeological site, you can admire the unusual Bent Pyramid, see the largely damaged Black Pyramid, and explore the interior of the Red Pyramid, the first smooth-sided pyramid in Egypt.

In this place I was able to enter both pyramids (Red and Romboidal) and enjoy a stripped-down area of the desert with incredible views and a feeling that would not be repeated anywhere else during our trip (really a very high point of our tour). Accompanied by our excellent and very friendly guide Osama Reda Ibrahim we were able to enjoy a very interesting and complete explanation about these amazing monuments, this person is really highly recommended for any Spanish-speaking traveler.
