It's the history of Egypt and the price is not bad. Or do what we did; book your stay at the Pyramids View Inn (just across the treet), and sit on their rooftop deck and watch for free!

Almost empty with very few foreign travelers in September 2017. CLEAN toilets. Friendly staff. Annoying interruptions by a four wheeler with full headlights...More

We had a great view of this show from our hotel. It was really cool! They provide the show in 3 different languages so everyone is accommodated. Definitely something to do when at the pyramids!

Hey, it was a nice good show but I can't say a fantastic one. It needs to be updated and enriched more. The story is funny but not having enough information about Ancient Egypt. The price is very good. You could try it one time...More

I would not walk. We got outside of the Mena gates and turned right back around and asked them to call us a cab. The cost is worth the security. The night we went, there were plenty of tickets still available the night of... More
