It is a unique experience to see this temple at night. The lights make the pharaonic images really stand out. The show is 45-60 minutes and a majority of the time you are seated. The story presentation is somewhat cheesy and forgettable.

We docked at Edfu temple during the day, looked around the temple and returned to the Light and Sound Show in the evening. The show was very good and told the story very well. Would definitely recommend it.

Our Nile cruise docked in Edfu, and we rode horse carriages to the temple along with our guide. The temple of Horus is one of the most intact in all of Egypt, as it was buried under silt and sand from Nile floods for centuries....More

It was rather boring, not informative nor entertaining. Don't waste time on this when you can have much more enriching attractions.
