Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Karnak 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.
While the tour was excellent I do not recommend doing the day and night tour the same day. I would suggest doing the night tour first then the day tour. But both are worthwhile experiences.
Very punctual and well organised. The show itself is a little unimaginative.
A really interesting way to see this temple! Having private transport is the best way to visit places in Egypt!
Much better than the pyramid light show as this light show brings you slowly through the temple as the show progresses.
The first half of the show was great, walking through the temple at night with the history being told was great, but the second half was a bit dull and could have been about 20 minutes shorter. Worth doing though just to see Karnak lit up at night.

I recommend the show, the temples partially illuminated at night look amazing. If you're staying on the East Bank which you probably will, I think it's better to go by yourself, the tickets are sold in Karnak, you can buy them early that day, just try to bargain a taxi or a carriage, you find them anywhere in the city.
It was interesting as we had been at the temple before and it was a good way to end our stay.
The night we went was so hot 35C which made it uncomfortable. Make sure you get to the front to appreciate all the lights.
The tour company was super friendly and very customer oriented. Picked us up on time and were waiting for us when we were done. The show itself was kind of boring. Not sure if I was just exhausted from the trip but towards the end I literally fell asleep. The Karnak Temple though is VERY impressive. The show could definitely be shorter.
Went back the next day to actually see the temple and take more time taking it all in. The show was a bit overrated.
A tale of 2 halves! The first half was brilliant, but once seated it got a little boring.
