This is a very dated production. The music, narration, and light harkens to the good old 1970s. The idea of it is alluring. My 12 year old saw a preview and couldn't live another hour without going to it. But it's not what it's cracked...More

Pyramids in the day is massive, breathtaking and extravaganza. Pyramids in twilight are just lovely with sunset sky and moon in the background. The sound and light show is a good way of story telling. A must see event for families with kids. very educative.

just start by saying that I didn't pay for this as were staying at Pyramid Inn Hotel that has excellent views of the Giza plateau, This show is not essential viewing if you only have short time in Cairo, and the Luxor one at Karnak...More

This show in the backdrop of the Sphinx and Khafre pyramid is a grand colourful spectacle. The sombre voice explains the history of Egypt , the pyramids and the Sphinx. It is worth a visit. Generally everyone rushes in to occupy the centre seats. But...More

This show is good. Just be sure the language it is presented in is what you need before purchasing tickets as they are different on some days. Most of the time it is English. Get there early for a good seat.

We watched the light and sound show from rooftop of Great Pyramids Inn. It was November, and the breeze was cold. You need woolen during December and January in the evening.
