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.
Was a great experience!!! Was picked up and driven through the hectic, heavy Cairo traffic. Our fantastic guide got us our tickets and showed us the way. The show itself is a bit dated but entertaining. We learned something about the pyramids and the sphinx as well as having a chuckle at the dramatic dialogue. One amazing thing was the fantastic sky full of stars and we saw 5 shooting stars over the pyramids during the show. Take a jacket as it gets cold or hire a blanket on site for 1EGY Pound. We were taken home in time for dinner. Worth doing!
Don't miss this while in Cairo! It was nice having private transportation, rather than having to find a taxi though there are tons of them waiting all the time. The only thing I would mention is to have them pick you up a little earlier than they suggest - we arrived as the lights were dimming for the show, which to me cut it a little close.
The show was fanatstic - the history of the whole place seemed to come alive. Would definitely recommend the show but remember to take a cardigan - it gets cold out on the plateau in the evening.
Fantastic show. Service by tour company was excellent.
The Light Show was amazing in itself. They picked us up, but a bit later than scheduled. But we made it there in plenty of time for the beginning of the show. Traffic in Cairo is insane, so we understood. They picked us up in our own van and dropped us off, and got our tickets for us. A very good company. Our only wish was that the lighting was brighter for the show. That has nothing to do with the company we got the tour with, but maybe they can request that the show be brighter for future customers.
As cheesy as it was, I loved the Sound and Light Show. The Pyramids lit up under the stars and seeing the Sphinx come to life was brilliant. Kids would love this show as well. Bring a light jacket though, it's little cooler at night.
The English should give back the nose! Interesting to learn the history of the pyramids and sphinx, and it was one of the better Sound and Light Shows in Egypt. It's cool just to see the place at night.
Great introduction before daytime visit to the pyramids. Do take something warm to wear as it can get quite chilly in the February evenings.
