Sound and Light Show Karnak Temple

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet a representative who will escort you to the Karnak temple. The show begins as you walk along the Avenue of Sphinx, passing through the towering facade into the Great Court. Walking through the complex a booming Pharaoh's voice narrates the history of Upper Egypt and the New Kingdom as the various additions left by rulers such as King Tutankhamun, Ramses II and Queen Hatshepsut are illuminated against the night sky.

    The second part of the sound and light show at Karnak finds you seated overlooking the sacred lake as the complex is illuminated and the story of Egypt continues.

    The sound and light show was amusing. The best part of it, was walking through Karnak at night. The lighting was well done. I found Karnak even more beautiful in the evening. There was a bit of a rush to be first and people were...More

    No guide needed for this tour. The light show was excellent and appealed to all ages. For sure a must-do if you’re in Luxor. Lasted over an hour and was great value for money. All seven in our party were happy and enjoyed it immensely

    The show is quite disappointing. Barely some light changing and a sound system so old you cant understand the words. It's a pity. All this space and such a high admission price for such a lousy show. Needs revamping urgently. The technology that are using...More

    So disappointed. Low tech show with a 1970’s sound track ( think old Ben Hur movie) with pictures projected on the stone wall. 2/3 of the show is standing. I’m astonished that they charged $35 for this nonsense. I am confident that high school students...More
