Their historical and cultural values are simply beyond description. Latest lighting, laser and projection technologies are utilized to visualize mysteries of the Pharonic civilization.

If you have to go, then dress warmly - the temperature drops SIGNIFICANTLY! But really, just don't go - it's a shocker - bad sound quality, patronising script and awful cheesy voice-overs. Lightshows at other temples are apparently better....

I laughed my way through most of this show and when I wasn't laughing I was falling asleep.
It is the most boring, tacky show I have ever seen. The pyramids are such amazing, great structures and this show just takes the micky out of them. Its a joke really. It could be done so much better, its an embarrassment really.

Dont waste your time/money

The sound and light show has been going for quite a number of years, and shows its age. It is worth seeing though - visually impressive and even a bit educational.

Loved this show, very atmospheric and the lights, lasers and commentary were used to good effect. The vendors at the end of the show were not pushy and let you browse their goods which made a nice change.

I had high expectations for the sound and light show. They were shattered at the event. It was old, outdated and all together an awful evening. The voice on the recording was just about as old as the pyramids themselves.
