Stupid me, I thought this was going to be a rock laser show like Pink Floyd in the US :-)
It was a multi-media event that was both entertaining and educational.
I booked the Sound and Light Show at Giza with pickup from and return to our hotel. Mohammed arrived promptly at the arranged time, took us right to the entrance gate, told us the best place to be seated and was waiting for us at an arranged point after the show. Both he and the driver were really friendly, prompty and helpful, therefore I wouldn't hesitate to refer people to Viator.
Light show was awesome but having a guide was a waste if money. Show is in English so no need for guide at all (they don't come in with you anyway) If was to go again I would just get a taxi. Pretty poor communication from viator -in fact I never did get a response from viator and ended up ringing the local guide directly.
Light show was wicked though!!
We truly enjoyed the light show at night after seeing the pyramids and Sphinx the previous day. Transportation for the four of us was very comfortable and the door-to-door service from our hotel was just great.

Getting around the busy city of Cairo is a pain but this Pyramids Sound and Light Show definitely made it all worth while for my son and I. The lighting of the Great Sphinx of Giza was especially good and took us back in time to appreciate the awe and majesty of this great monolith.
Great show at night of the pyramids with a storyline explaining the history of the Pharaohs. Some great night shots!
Unfortunatly for me I didnt see the actual show. I saw the pr showing and didnt realize it was not the actual show. Im going to have to come abck to see it later! :) The pre showing was s amazing i thought it WAS the show haha. A definate must see. Pyramids in color and the history is all wow.
The Sound and Light show is indescribable! We loved Memdough our contact from South Sinai Travel. He was so sweet and caring. Our driver Joseph was very patient and willingly stopped for pictures.
It was exellent, can recommend it to anyone who are going to Cairo, everything was on time, just as advertised.
a must see. about 45 minutes long. outside at night with lights on the Sphinx and pyramids and a narration. check language days. you can also get language head sets. it is about 45 minutes outside of downtown Cairo; you can taxi it but it is better to take the tour as they will promptly pick you up at your hotel and the price difference is minimal, it is safer and you ride in comfort.
the guide and pickup were excellent however i expected more from the show itself
Was a great tour, transport was prompt and efficient. Was really easy to book. Show was great... Had a really great time.... I would highly recommend this tour...
This really was a magnificent show which I thoroughly enjoyed and was even better than the sound and light show in Luxor. The guide and driver were both excellent
Got there 10 minutes before the show and still had good seats. Seeing the Pyramids lit up is pretty cool very good show. Transport was very comfortable to and from Hotel.
Really good very atmospheric, if you go to giza you need to see this.
Again South Sinai handled the transport to and from the show in a timely manner

Seeing the Pyramids light up different colours and watching the laser show is amazing. They really are breath-taking. The only annoying feature is the voice of the narrator who seemed to give his delievery of the history of the pyramids in his best 'shakesperian' voice. it would be more authentic if Omar shareef or some other middle eastern actor had done it, after all this is Egypt not bloody Hampshire !! It is a must see, I went on my first night in Cairo, our tour guide picked us up from the hotel lobby, put us in air-con car and did not leave our side until we were in the venue, and did exactly the same on the way home. Single travellers would find this service valuable. The whole event was Brillant !!
