I am so glad I got to experience this show while in Cairo. The performers were not only extremely talented, but they also added their individual personalities to their performances, which made for a wonderful evening! Don't miss this! It really is worth your time!

“A Nice Experience :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

The show is every Saturday & Wednesday at 7:00 pm. It is a mix of a spiritual & folkloric show. We really enjoyed the rhythm of the music. Go early so you can save yourself a seat in the front row. Video shooting is not allowed, only photos can be taken so prepare yourself by getting a flash for you camera because the light is really low so that it can match environment of the show.

“Great show but very touristy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

It's a good show and the dancers are obviously professional showmen. The setting is also beautiful. Worth going for anyone interested in Egyptian music and dance.

“Exciting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Great couple of hours spent watching these guys, even if you don't like dancing you will be spellbound by what they do. Get a taxi there and buy your own tickets, although foreigners pay slightly more it is very cheap. Beautiful restored building. There were empty seats when we went although I have read it gets full, but Cairo was very lacking in tourists whilst we were there.
