Overview

Every day when the sun sets, the bustling city of Cairo, the famous pyramids on the Giza plateau south of Cairo are absorbed in the darkness of the night, however, the great light and sound show bring them to life again. Thousands of years have passed since the Pharaohs walked on this Earth, but with your imagination and our show, we bring the history alive to you; every show provides attendees with a learning experience about ancient Egypt as of its significant beginning, the pyramids

Skip the show if you’re tossing up about whether to go. It’s very basic history and the lights are not impressive at all ( very child like). It’s also super windy and cold so it’s rather unpleasant. The best part was seeing the pyramids and...More

I think we expected too much and were a little disappointed. I am not saying you should skip this show, but do not expect too much. It is just colored lights and a dialogue for about an hour. It is cold and we had to...More

This might be the show to close the day with a flourish. Visitors will be sitting and listen to a bit of Egyptian history - differnt languages are at disposal - while watching the amazing pyramids being lit with wonderful colours. A good way to...More

We really liked the pyramid show. The view is beautiful and you actually learn something about their history. It's mostly the basics but still - very recommendable! Might also be nice for children since the Sphinx is acting like the story teller :) Bring jackets...More

Quite a cheesy show - lights and narration, telling a somewhat disjointed history of Egypt. I’d agree with others that it needs a bit of a revamp, it was a tad dated. We’re pleased that we went though, great to see the pyramids lit up...More

We visited as a group after the working day, the show was in English but was followed by a French dialogue show after which some of our group attended. The lights help visualize the ancient story and the site. Seeing them in the day is...More

Certainly one of the main highlights in Egypt, the amazing light show on the Great Pyramids and Sphinx while hearing the narration about the history of those monements was simply Epic

We got told different stories as to when the show started, the ticket office (1 booth) opens at 8pm and the show starts at 8.30pm. Tickets are LE150 for standard or LE175 for VIP (first 3 rows). The british accent, narrative and the lasers definitely...More

The show itself is a bit dated and needs a revamp. It has an interesting narrative telling the story of Egypt and the pyramids. You can get great photos of the pyramids lit up with lasers. Worth seeing if you have time.
