The legendary Sound and Light shows are playing at world renowned Pyramids of Giza, Temples of Karnak, Philae and Abu Simbel; four of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Their historical and cultural values are simply beyond description. Latest...more

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.
