This show in the backdrop of the Sphinx and Khafre pyramid is a grand colourful spectacle. The sombre voice explains the history of Egypt , the pyramids and the Sphinx. It is worth a visit. Generally everyone rushes in to occupy the centre seats. But...More

This show is good. Just be sure the language it is presented in is what you need before purchasing tickets as they are different on some days. Most of the time it is English. Get there early for a good seat.

The place is crap, management keeps smoking, no one gives a Damm about not clicking pictures with flas on and the show itself is so poorly executed that we felt sleepy in the first 15 mins. Not worth going don't waste time or money.

This outdoor Sound & Light Show in Giza is a very nice introduction to that spesific part of the history of Egypt. It tells the ancient story of the Pyrymands and Sphinx and the different colour lights makes for a very entertaining evening. (Weather permitting).

A very enjoyable show. Try and get a seat near the front on the right side to get the best view. Gives you a summary of what you are going to see in Egypt.

If you are suitably overwhelmed by the pyramids then this show is well worth a visit, it tells the story of the 3 pyramids with an amazing holographic show and naration. Well worth it.

Was it cool to see the pyramids lit up at night? Yes. Would I do it again? No. Everyone who says this show needs to be revamped/updated is correct. I have only seen the show once but you can tell it has never been updated....More

The show it tacky, the laser effects are not impressive and the story not coherent. HOWEVER, seeing the pyramids lit under the night sky whilst the stars were shining, it worth every single euro. I recommend paying the 50 extra Egyptian pounds to stay in...More

We watched the light and sound show from rooftop of Great Pyramids Inn. It was November, and the breeze was cold. You need woolen during December and January in the evening.
