The pyramids or the light show? This show needs a serious update. It wasn't worth the price of admission, just something to fill part of an evening before dinner.

The evening show takes place in front of the Giza Sphinx which seems just steps away with the pyramids directly behind it. The best seats are directly in front of the Sphinx so find a seat on the right side as you walk into the viewing area. Plastic chairs are set up in rows and are much more comfortable than... More

The Sound & Light show is very well presented & gives an insight into the history. But carry something warm as it can get quite cold in the evenings in the winter.

It was a great way to start your trip. The history of the story they told help with other things you see during the remainder of your trip. It is set up for over 500 people but only 50 were there during my attendance.

I was in business trip and After a busy day at work me, and few of my colleagues went to see the show. It's really charming to see different light projections on pyramids and sphinx. Sound quality of voices can be better. Also better and comfortable headphones should be provided. Overall it was a great experience to see a different... More

We had a view of this from the rooftop of our guesthouse, and it was fun. I wouldn't have paid for it, though. Personally, I prefer the pyramids and Sphinx lightly lit up and just normal. But the show was an interesting interruption to the majesty of these mammoth creations.

I love history and I have always wanted to see Cairo. Such a beautiful and amazing city with amazing people who love this city. If you love history and culture. Come here. I'll never forget this trip. I still can't believe I seen some of the things I did and experience the things I have.

Very attractive sound and amazing narration about the history of the Pharaohs during ancient Egypt. Better visiting during warm nights. I recommend .

If you are visiting the pyramids, I highly recommend to check out this sound-and-light show. My favorite part was the reconstructed face of the sphinx projected onto the statue. It is mind-numbing to think about how long it has been standing there, and how much it had seen. A truly humbling experience.
