Not really worth the price
Feb 2021
The show is very old, probably made 20yrs ago and never changed. At times like this, you want to go to the main 7 pm show since you have a high chance of the other shows being canceled. There were only 20 people. The show was in Arabic as most people there were local but you can get a free headset to hear the English. I wouldn't say the show is worth the 300LE, but if you want to see the pyramids lit up at night, I guess this is the only way. I had a very late flight and just needed to kill time at night.

We were fortunate that we traveled during the pandemic! This light show was so cool. We were 1 of a dozen ppl. here! That made it even more special. We were there Nov 10th, 2020.

Sound and Light Show , The Giza Pyramids
Aug 2020 • Family
No doubt the pyramids are lovely view to be seen specially at night but level of light and sound show was just average . It was not upto the standard of The Great Giza Pyramids . The script of documentary should improve further specially the translation in English to make it more interesting and captivating .
Besides above the place was surrounded by looters and frauds continuously who were thinking of every possible way and trick to take out money from you even upto the extent that they were not letting us sit in our car in end.
Managment of sound and light show was least bothered about it .
Poor show at such a historic wonder of world !

Not our favorite
Jan 2020
While our day visit to the pyramids and The Great Sphinx was a highlight of our trip, we were disappointed with the evening sound and light show. It was a bit cheezy and we felt it needed to be updated.

Colorful!
Jan 2020
Our group had an opportunity to see the Sphinx and Pyramids illuminated while we were eating dinner at Abou Shakra Restaurant. We didn’t actually attend the Sound and Light show so I can’t speak to it’s overall value. But I can tell you that seeing these world-famous monuments bathed in colorful lights is exciting!

70s light show
Mar 2020 • Solo
It tells some of the history of the pyramids and lights them up using 70s technology. It was a good show and interesting to watch.

No service

I tried to change the date of my vip tickets. Nobody answered to my emails - no service at all, once you bought a ticket.

Was Good To See But A Bit Dated
Mar 2020
There are three shows, each one in a different language. The show lasts about an hour, and as other people have said, it is a bit dated, but I must say I did enjoy it and was a good introduction to the pyramids.

Disappointing
Mar 2020
This show has not been updated in a very long time. It was boring and the story was confused. With today's lighting technology it could be a fabulous show. The majority of our tour group were disappointed. This show must have made a lot of money in the years it has been running, and some of that should be invested in improving the seating, lighting, and updating the sound track.

If you have the times, this is a nice way to spend an evening and get another historical perspective about the Pyramids.
We enjoyed our evening.
