In Brief

Cairo, Egypt
2 hours
Important InfoInfo
The Sound and Light Show at the Great Pyramids takes place on the Giza plateau, around 30 minutes from Cairo. The one-hour show begins with the illumination of the Sphinx, who narrates the history of the pyramids and their builders.

Using laser beams and light projections on the walls of the Mummification Temple, desert sands, pyramid walls and the Sphinx itself, a condensed story of Egypt unfolds. The accompanying soundtrack complements the surroundings and the voice of the Sphinx is suitably dramatic and mysterious!

After the show your driver/guide will meet you at the gates of the complex to escort you back to your hotel. With your own private transportation on this tour, you will travel directly between your hotel and the Sound and Light Show without stopping to collect other passengers.

My husband was skeptical about this tour. He wasnt sure about what we were going to see and if we were even going to see anything at night. He and I were amazed at how incredible this show was. The creativity in projecting onto the pyramids and the interesting storyline to go with it. Bravo!!!!!

When Ameer transferred me from the airport to my hotel he also confirmed the pick up time for this tour. Everything was exactly as what was confirmed. The tour told a story using pictures on the pyramids. The pictures were amazing and I have amazing pictures. Once again I would highly recommend my guide and the tour company without any hesitation.

All of our Cairo guides provided through Viator have been wonderful. The main advantage of this tour is easy transportation to and from the light show. Our guide also introduced us to some local food for dinner at a place we never would have found otherwise. Once again, Viator guides were a great way to see Cairo!

I did not get to go as we were really tired that night but it was with the same guide, Mr Amr, who was our guide on another tour. I imagine it would be just as amazing given it's with the same tour operator!

This light show was very cool. Don't bring food like others we saw, there are stray cats and dogs that will wonder up to you but they are sweet!! The show was nice, it was chilly and we rented blankets.

The show lasted an hour and the history of ancient Egypt was told throughout. This wasn't just lighted pyramids but with images displayed on the pyramids whilst the story unfolded. Excellent night. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

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!!

Gave a good introduction to the history of the pyramids.

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!
