Depends a bit on where you are staying. We just got the Hotel to organise our trip to the Sound and Light Show, and we got front row seats, our friends who did hte tour got to sit at the back. You basically arrive, sit there, watch the show and go home, our driver from the hotel was waiting for us at the end, so it is very easy to do.
Was the show entertaining? Learn anything different than the tour guide provided?
Sound and Light shows are tourist traps.
IMHO, the Sound & Light is not worth it. But here's an alternative based on my experience. I was staying at Mena House (Palace section) with a closeup view of Khafre's Pyramid from my room. One morning I woke up early & went out onto the patio while it was still dark. As the sun rose, I watched The Pyramid emerge out of the darkness.
Now THAT was a light show!
Our experience was similar to 23aj. They let us sit where ever we wanted, and you could see the whole show no matter where you sat.
I went last year and thought the Light shows were cheesy. You will be better off learning from the tour guide than the show. In fact, after the first one we canceled our plans for any remaining shows.
