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.

We loved the sound and light show at Karnak Temple. We hadn't seen it first which was a good way round we thought. The darkness added to the mystery and the description was good. The next day we were very pleased to see it in daylight and understood what the carvings etc meant.

Bit dated but only takes an hour and good for photos. Recommend to visit again during the day as it is an impressive temple.

The show has a lot of room for improvisation as I strongly believe the show does not match the epic Karnak temple. Karnak temple is the most amazing and epic site in egypt. So, to do justice to the site, the show must be up to the mark. It can be more interactive, more detailed, and more deeper. The show lacks charm and does not describe the temple enough. Anyways it's a one hour show and worth taking once.

was very disappointed. Walking sound and show part was ok but the sitting down part was poorly done.
