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.

It was a nice description of the old pharaonic history, and the show is quite interesting for those who like to learn about ancient EGYPTian History. I wish I could read more details before attending the show. The temple is clean and the weather is magnificant, although i didn't like the croud. I wish It would be a smaller group

cheesy a bit but fun and the kids enjoyed it. Nice to see the temple at night. The recordings were good but lighting not as impressive as I thought it would be. Worth going

Great show although the sound track is a little old fashioned, it could do with livening up a little and its a bit harsh on the ears some of the music, but over all its belting

I returned for the 3rd time to the Sound and Light show, it hadn't changed. It is so atmospheric and this is how I like my history ~ up close and personal. Standing in the temple at Thebes in the dark, with a view across the Nile to the Valley of the Kings.."any lights on the hillside mean the embalmers are at work". Amazing historical site. Narrative is unexpectedly Disney (Judi Dench booming through the Luxor night) but it does say "Sound and Light". It captivated me for a third time and I was pleased to have gone again. Its only an hour. A mongrel dog, perched on top of a stone Pharoah, howling at the stars, added to the experience..Many thought it part of the show. (it wasn't).

AKA Karnak sound and light show.
It was interesting but if you can't fit it in your schedule or can't afford it ( we paid 100 EGY each), you aren't missing much.
Note: there is a fair bit of walking in 'not well lit areas' and sometimes the sound was not good.
We had visited the Temple during the day ( with a guide) and frankly, that was sufficient. This show did not enhance our experience at all.
