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.

“Light Show Extrordinaire !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

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

“Well Produced, Non-Substantive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

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.
