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

We were there around sunset and there was a seating arrangement in front of pyramids. Occupying the first few rows is good though not a must. but certainly don't be seated towards the end

It was a little cold in the evening and the women did feel it quite cold. best to do the first show and not wait for the second one else it can get really late

the voice and light quality was good and had a good lesion for those who don't quite know about the history

This is a must to see in the evening, laser and sound show at the Pyramids, take a coat or jacket as it can get cold in the evening, the narrator I am sure is Richard Burton.

After travelling 200 miles across the desert to see the Pyramids then catching this show..................what a GREAT disappointment..!
The Pyramids were much smaller than I had believed for 60 odd years and we thought the show would leave us with a nice glow and put a good end to things......It was a rather second rate show with big publicity...............................I think that 100 years ago....the pile of bricks may have impressed a few early travellers and 30 years ago the show may have also impressed.......................save your money and your time or........................go and waste it.

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.
