We really didn't find the show that interesting, and it's not cheap. You listen to an hour of historical commentary while lights turn on and off on the pyramids. I wouldn't really call it a show. Again, just not interesting. I'd say pass on this...More

The Light & Sound Show at the Pyramids / Sphinx complex at Giza, Egypt was a memorable experience. Especially to us as we had studied Egyptian archaeology as students. The show, which lasts about 45 minutes, is in English (translations are available, I guess, for...More

Many will pronounce this attraction as cheesy or corny. I saw a number of people sleeping through it. The Sound portion, a rambling narration with a regal music, sounds much like the soundtrack from a 1950s Biblical epic movie: grand dialogue, of course with a...More

Remember James Bond, "The Spy Who Loved Me"? Yes, this is the show that's in that movie. There are few things different, but one cool thing is Sir Anthony Hopkins' voice. He's a great narrator, so it added more magic to the whole experience. Seeing...More

We watched the light and sound show from rooftop of Great Pyramids Inn. It was November, and the breeze was cold. You need woolen during December and January in the evening.
