Step Pyramid Of Zoser - Review
The pyramid was built by one of Ancient Egypts most prominent personalities, Vizier Imhotep. It comprises of a series of mastabas (flat-roofed structure with sloping sides), built on top of each other. There are over five kilometers worth of tunnels under the pyramid, built to discourage looting.
Nevertheless, the Pyramid has been well and thoroughly plundered over the years, leaving only the mummified left foot of Djoser. The Step Pyramid of Zoser is unfortunately closed for visitors, but you can surely have a good view of the pyramid from outside and can click hundreds of pictures right in front of it. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Cairo itinerary 4 days.

Step Pyramid Of Zoser, Cairo Reviews
Amazing historical site with the burial site still under excavation. It was breathtaking to behold the structures the ancient Egyptians created without modern machinery. The stepped pyramid was only the beginning as you can visit and enter another pyramid and see the art etched into the walls of the buildings around.
An interesting comparison to the"newer" pyramids at giza. Impressive in its own right. It is surrounded by many other buildings and ruins that you can walk through. Of particular note is a smaller tomb you can visit with paintings and hieroglyphics on the walls. A few local vendors were present and we were able to buy water from a man with a cooler at reasonable rates. There are washroom facilities at the entrance that are well maintained.
Not much to see, I think it is over hyped. Really appreciate the work of restoration, but for the average visitor, there is not much to see. Entry to the interior is not allowed nor climbing. Authorities had taken particular care to ensure that tourists should suffer/enjoy maximum sun. During summer it's unbearable. Beware about the gate keepers offering scenes, you have to pay baksheesh.
Wonderful sight to see. Museum, tombs and pyramids, though there are currently some not open to the public. Less touristy. Some well preserved pieces of art in tombs. Definitely worth visit!
One of the amazing pyramids we saw while in Egypt. Egypt is safe and Friendly. Highly recommend seeing it.
