Over all, a good show.

Nice show but not great. Lighting should be a little more brighter. As an open area, the sound should also be adjusted for hearing clearly. Lights on the Pyramids is more... read more

This was part of my tour (Trafalgar/Wonders off Egypt) ... and yes it is a little dated ... but think James Bond ... don't be a snob ... go Tourist volume was down when we were there, like our own private show. It was on the breezy side, adding to the mysterious atmosphere and gave way to contemplating on how... More

We were to go on the day we reached Eygpt , but due to VIP visit it was post poned later. The sound and light show uses lasers to explain the history of Pyramids. It is wonderful experience to watch it with Pyramids as back drop.

With an excellent surrounding sound, as well as lights and of course, Omar Shariff's voice, this show describes the pyramids and their hystory.

This is the first place we visited in our Egypt vacation.Our guide Mohammad Ali took us and help us. It was really a good sound and light show. We enjoyed and got little history to know before starting our next day journey in daytime!!!

I was really looking forward to this show, as I missed it back in 2009, as I was following a group tour which didn't include this. Now in 2017, I come alone and can see it. My guide did warn me that it hasn't changed since the day it was created, but I had high hopes. I was quite disappointed... More

They have done such a amazing job with the Laser show here at the Giza Pyramids. This is a must see and you can understand the story of the Pyramids just watching the laser show.. A wonderful evening event!

Nice show but not great. Lighting should be a little more brighter. As an open area, the sound should also be adjusted for hearing clearly. Lights on the Pyramids is more beautiful than the Sphinx.
