Attraction details
Owner description: Every day when the sun sets, the bustling city of Cairo, the famous pyramids on the Giza plateau south of Cairo are absorbed in the darkness of the night, however, the great light and sound show bring them to life again. Thousands of years have passed since the Pharaohs walked on this Earth, but with your imagination and our show, we bring the history alive to you; every show provides attendees with a learning experience about ancient Egypt as of its significant beginning, the pyramids

It was ok. I expected a huge spectacular light show! what i got was the same lights and sounds repeated for an hour.

But I must say, you do get a great history lesson while watching the show. I guess this attraction really depends on the personality of the traveler. If you skip one thing while in Giza, don't feel too bad dropping this from your itinerary! If you are up for it, I think exploring the streets of Cairo are a much better way of spending your evening.

We went to the Sound and Light show with great hopes, as the potential was huge. I mean, with one of the most iconic landscape and architecture of the world, as well as such rich history and mythology, how can you go wrong? But go wrong they did - with poor quality execution. The government should seriously spend some money behind producing a better movie; otherwise the whole thing is just a waste of time.

Saw this light show and really enjoyed how it made the story of the pyramids come alive. Also a great place to take colorful and unique photos! While it could be considered melodramatic it is a once in a lifetime experience.

The laser light show was recommended to me on my last day in Cairo. I fell in love with the bright lights and the ancient narrative. (It isn't 100% correct, but that's okay) It was a wonderfully odd experience to be sitting in the middle of the desert watching the ancient past play out in front of you.

I grew up in Egypt, but never had a chance to see the show. When I returned in 1986 and experienced the show, it was amazing. You are literally sitting outside in the desert and the lights and sound are great. Can't wait to come back!
