It was easy enough to get there by using Uber and choosing the Giza Pizza Hut/KFC on the map. We came from near Zamalek, so it didn't take too long to get there and was not expensive at all by Uber. We arrived early enough...More

If your in Cairo, you have to go to the show. It’s a unique experience. The show hasn’t changed since I saw it in 2006, but the family enjoyed it and the nighttime views are lovely.

I think we expected too much and were a little disappointed. I am not saying you should skip this show, but do not expect too much. It is just colored lights and a dialogue for about an hour. It is cold and we had to...More

This might be the show to close the day with a flourish. Visitors will be sitting and listen to a bit of Egyptian history - differnt languages are at disposal - while watching the amazing pyramids being lit with wonderful colours. A good way to...More

We really liked the pyramid show. The view is beautiful and you actually learn something about their history. It's mostly the basics but still - very recommendable! Might also be nice for children since the Sphinx is acting like the story teller :) Bring jackets...More
