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 !!
The pyramid show at night is excellent the tour operator provided great service to get us there on-time and prompt departure at the conclusion. I would highly recommend it.
BRILLIANT. GET THERE AN HOUR EARLIER THAN THE 2030 SHOW TO SEE THE SUNSET OVER THE PYRAMIDS BEFORE THE SHOW
The guide and the driver were excellent. We booked 2 excursions and transfers to and from the airport, and everything was superb. The only gripe I would have is that I tried to call the agent to advise that we had a 4 hour delay, but only managed to make contact as we were boarding the flight 4 hours later. The voucher advised that we had to inform the agent if the flight time had changed, but the poor guide had to sit at the airport until we arrived having absolutely no idea! All said and done, it didn't ruin the holiday, and the 2 trips booked were excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to book again.
Despite some initial difficulties in getting in touch with the local agent to confirm the trip I ultimately had to use the emergency contact numbers, the operator was excellent in terms of both the arrangements, flexibility & the transport. The Sound & Light Show itself was excellently staged & superbly atmospheric. I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone spending an evening in Cairo.
As per the other reviews - the show is worth seeing early as it does tie together some aspects of the 'story'. We were picked up and dropped off on time, although picking up a 'work colleague' on the way home was inconvenient. They could have at least told us beforehand.
The Pyramid Sound and Light Show was too cool. Was picked up at the hotel lobby, arrived on time. I sat in an upgraded section I payed 50 EGP with all the drinks I wanted. It was a super evening.
Very enjoyable show. Explained the history of the Pyramids. Transfer to and from the show was very good.
The vehicle was on time to the hotel, we had no problems going to and from the show as the driver was very professional. The show was amazing and a great experience!
The best service, all on time, and our guide was very polite.
This was the most comforting of all my excursions in Cairo. The driver picked us up with no guide riding along for no reason only to expect a tip, dropped us off, and picked us up right away.
It's worth it to see and listen to ancient Egypt history. Take a jacket with you, it's cold at nite.
Did it at the end of the trip and it was a great summation. Transportation was very nice and driver found us after the show with no problem. Worth the cost for the door to door service.
Felt like we were on the set for a movie epic! The story of the pyramids as told by the Sphinx, what a hoot it was a great night out even in winter.
