The excitement and anticipation was more than the actual show. I was expecting a musical laser show, but it was more of a history lesson that is narrated by the Sphinx. There were dogs that kept barking during the show. There was a man there...More

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.

The light show was underwhelming, we did it the last night in town. It was recommended by our guide, his only miss. issues, music and updating in desperate needs.

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.
