Owner description: The Sound and Light show at Abu Simbel will transport you to the time of the pharaohs. Enchanting you with melodious music, and bringing the ancient world to life around you, the show includes projections onto the temples showing how they once looked. The program is presented in a number of languages with the provision of ear pieces. It is an experience not to be missed, one that will make your visit to Abu Simbel the memory of a lifetime.

Amazing feelings when you listen to the ancient Pharos talking about their glorious history full of stories about their civilization how could they built these temples. Oh wow.

You arrive and take your seat by torchlight, with the temple in front and Lake Nasser behind. It is deadly quiet, dark and eerie. Suddenly the temple bursts to life with music and light. Totally captivating and a surreal experience

Sound quality was excellent, lighting effects very well-done and modern. The story line was silly, but it's all part of the experience. The sun sets during the six o'clock show, so the stars come out while you're watching. We enjoyed it.

The Son et Lumiere at Karnak and this one are really very good and entertaining. Bring warm clothes in the winter, it is chilly.

We are both a little sceptical about sound and light shows as we consider it's rather sacrilegious to stick lamps all over historical monuments and this was the first one we have seen. As it was included as part of our Lake Nasser cruise we went along the rest of the passengers.
To say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement -it was very informative and entertaining. The majority of the audience were Italians so the main commentary was in Italian & we listened to the English commentary through headphones which worked perfectly.
It was an amazing spectacle & well worth seeing.
