Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Philae Temple Sound and Light Show with Private Transport. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Although Aswan was quiet I was stunned that the entire sound and light show, including private transfer and boat crossing, was arranged for just the five in our party. Yes, that's right, the entire temple just for five interested travellers. If there is any doubt that the Egyptians are keen to regain their tourist trade then surely this must be it! An excellent show, better than the slightly garish effort at the pyramids, does intermingle myth and historical fact in its spiel but gives an insight into the history and development of this site, including to transfer to the island during the flooding from the formation of Lake Nasser. Don't miss it!
It was superb! But a pity that we didn't know in advance that we could have the explanation in french on certain days of the week.
This was an excellent excellent sound and light show and a great evening all round. Reaching the temple of Philae by boat in the cool of evening is an added bonus and being surrounded by water makes it feel really special. We were told this was one of the best Sound & Light shows in Egypt and I'd believe it!
I've been before, so I knew how cold it could be, but a quick note could advise others of this.
