The temperature gets quite low so make sure you carry warm clothes. The story telling is pretty engaging

Do not pay extra for the show.If you have an opportunity ,watch it from the near by hotel terrace as we did.Show is long and frankly quite boring.Light effects are not very exciting. Pyramids are lighted up nicely only for few minutes.Best to see them...More

Hilariously bad. Was probably state of the art 30 years ago. Certainly not now. I laughed in places where laughter was not intended (of that I'm sure). The very crisp English accents cracked me up - felt like I was watching a 1930's newsreel. I...More

We thought there was going to lazer lights and music. This was not. It was a history lesson with Father Time. It reminded me of a history show from 1936 with poor graphics. If the narration was done with Morgan Freeman, at least it may...More

The lights make the pyramids and the Sphinx look indeed majestic. The commentaries by Omar Sharif are interesting, but they are about 45 minutes (out of about 60) too long, and some of it is spiritual or even intellectual rubbish.

Most tours charge from $45-60 dollars per person, some include dinner and some don't but if you are staying in close proximity to the pyramids it is much cheaper to do it on your own. Your hotel can arrange for round trip taxi transfer $590...More

The show is informative and interesting. Make sure you get there from the beginning! There are plenty of seats so you’ll definitely find a spot to sit and watch.

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.
