Attraction details
Owner description: The Karnak Sound and Light Show highlights the dramatic history of ancient Thebes. The show narrates the achievements of some great Pharaohs, with poetic descriptions of the ancient treasures. As visitors walk through the complex, the pharaohs arise to tell the story of their interesting lives, as haunting music mysteriously flows through this ancient city. Ancient and poetic voices tell the visitors about the birth of Karnak temple and the heroic achievements of the pharaohs and the god Amun. It is an enchanting and supernatural experience to listen to sound effects and gaze at the magnificent ruins illuminated during the well-presented show.

“Atmospheric”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Well worth the visit and gives a different feel from during the day. Do go when it's your language rather than use the headphones, the sund is much more impressive that way.

“Worth a visit if you have time”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I personally thought it was a waste of money, but I guess if you have time then go for it, but don't feel like you're missing anything if you don't get chance.

“Light and Sound Show, Luxor”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Disappointed with the overall show. I went hoping to learn more about the temples how they were built and why. I left confused. There was very little information given out. I felt it was disjointed and so much more could have been done with the light show. I did not feel it was value for money.

“Interesting experience”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

The show gave a good overview of the history of the temples etc. and as you walk through at night with various areas lit up gave a real sense of what had gone on. The final area seated in front of the sacred lake with the valley of the kings in the distance was quite an experience

“Disapointed”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

visited during the day, and was looking forward to the night time light show, but had technical problems when the story came on, with no lights with it, and every one just did not seem to know what was happening or were informed, so got off to a bad start, and spoilt it for me, but these things happen.
