Its a shame for something as glorious as the pyramids to have such an outdated show. The view of the pyramids at night with the lights on is a must though

Overpriced. It was ok and the story was quite interesting but overall way overpriced!! We paid $50 AUS each whereas $25 would have been far more reasonable.

Having seen other Sound and Light shows, I was expecting rather more. The historical narration was very good but the light show disappointing. If you go with lower expectations then I'm sure it will be worthwhile.

If your in Cairo, you have to go to the show. It’s a unique experience. The show hasn’t changed since I saw it in 2006, but the family enjoyed it and the nighttime views are lovely.
