Had gone through 3 nights with this ship. It was amazing and specially I must say the name Mohamed Gobran who makes our stay most special. He has good knowledge in history of Egypt and explained us all the ways. Apart from this food and ambience was also very good.

Did not believe it was worth time or money. Difficult to understand speakers and see visuals. I did enjoy the pyramid lighting. The daytime visit to the pyramids was much better.

Rip off. No laser show with projections onto pyramids any more. I saw this show 25 years ago when it worked, it has been let fall apart. All the lights lenses are filthy too, don't be scammed by this one people.

Our guide discreetly put it to us in advance this way: some people like it and others do not. Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but hey, we were staying nearby in Giza, we are probably here one time in our lives, and we didn't have anything else to do that night, so why not? I'll tell you now why not: the sound quality is poor, the light show itself is unimpressive, and it all seems quite dated. I did take my favorite Sphinx/pyramids photo while there, but in our 11 days in Egypt, this was the only attraction that we felt was not worth the time or money. If you can, see the Sound and Light Show at Abu Simbel. Same company, but a much newer and better show. As for Giza, find another way to spend your evening.

I could see it from my hotel so i didnt have to pay for it
I believe the ticket is usually 30usd i dont think it is worth it to be honest
I mean it is basically lights on the pyramids and you cant really hear the audio
I guess it is always nice to see the pyramid anyway but perhaps not worth the is price… 10usd max would be good enough

The most disappointed experience ever. Very poor and old “laser lights”. The stories told are boring to death, no conexión, no clear, making no sense at all. So cheap and old fashion that they didn’t even cut traffic so cars passing on the road near the Pyramids. We were laughing cause we all thought it was a bright light for the show to realized few minutes later that it was a car coming!! It’s XXI century guys, you could do and amazing show with the amazing pyramids and the sphinx. Don’t bother, specially if it’s sold as an option with dinner. Worst dinner and service. Might are cold in January and they set up the table in the open terrace!!! The whole thing was unbelievable.

Really disappointing! Purchased a VIP SEAT and its totally not worth it. We were waiting for lights but its all sounds and mostly a Pitch dark stage for the first 10 mins or almost the entire show! I almost fell asleep in my chair. Such a waste, and all the cars passing by , a complete distraction. This is just like listening to an audio book! There is absolutely no light show to see. I felt scammed.

This is a romanticized history narration with occasional slides or lazer graphics in front of the pyramids. Love the info and pyramid lights but the narration and pacing could be updated for the internet age. If you’re expecting lasers and music - entertainment like ‘dark side of the moon’ or Stone Mountain - this is not that. If you want a history lesson and don’t mind a cheezy script to see the pyramids lit up magestically at night, you’ll love it.

Frankly, was disappointed! Had heard a lot about this, but the actual show was a bit of a letdown.

We went there by a large bus. This is located within narrow streets, so had to walk a bit to reach the venue. Huge crowd! Got good seats and got my first view of the famous Giza Pyramids!

The show started on time and went on for about 40 minutes. The Pyramids and the Sphinx were illuminated with lights at different points of the show. There was a flat piece of rock where some images with displayed. And, of course, a narration in English that tried to explain the history behind the Pyramids and the Egyptian Empire.

The narrative was not great. The sound was unclear and the story was rambling at times. And too many Pharaohs and Queens were mentioned. For someone unfamiliar with ancient Egyptian history, it became confusing to track all these names! The lighting was also mediocre. And there was a (public?) road between the Pyramids, where the show was taking place. And vehicles, with bright headlights on, passing regularly! Disturbing!

The location is fantastic, the Pyramids one of the Wonders! With a little more effort, I feel this show could be made brilliant!

Tips - the seats up front are the best! And do take a light jacket across. Breezy in the evenings. Paid toilets available.

Outdated show with dated technology. A Spotlight shining on a pyramid may have been fine 20 years ago but not good enough today. Rather spend the entry money on something else.
