The thought of seeing the pyramids at night all grand and lighted sounded really awesome but it turned out to be a little of a disappointment and especially when we paid usd50 per pax to sit and watch some old fashion story telling and lights...More

We watched the show from the hotel rooftop and truly enjoyed it. The presentation is a little dated but very good overall. My wife referred to it as being from the original Star Trek series from the 60's.

Theatrical take on the history of the Giza pyramids and the area, as told by the Sphinx, who sounds a lot like Omar Sharif. It's a sound and light show, so it's meant to be kitsch. Good overview of the history and a bit of...More

Would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't exhausted from a full day of touring the Pyramids. Great history of the Pyramids and the creators.

Pyramids looked fabulous when they were lit, the light show lasts 1 hour, some teenagers may find this boring or dragging a bit

If you like the Egyptian culture and its history this is surely worth a visit. There's nice original voices speaking and music playing which gets you back in the days instantly. Also a great light show!
