Would be reasonably good show in 1984. Don’t use the audio guides, they are RadioShack quality...from 1980’s. They need a serious update, so if you want to spend the money to help in restoration of the temple(which is amazing in the daytime) then go support.

We saw the light show at Giza a few years ago, but this one was different in the fact that the first 30 minutes you walked through the temple and stopped at different locations. The last 30 minutes you were seated. Interesting to see Karnak...More
