Giza Pyramids come to live underneath a desert sky.
Visiting the Giza Pyramids in Egypt is a must and the Sound and Light show was definitely one of the highlights on my trip to Egypt. I had an official date with the Pyramids of Giza the next day but I couldn´t contain my excitement so I booked this show at the hotel. I was not sure what to expect.The bus picked me up from the hotel and transferred me to the venue. I was one of the first people and got a good seat up close. I sat there hypnotized. It was my first view of the pyramids and I have been dying to see it for such a long time.
The setting was dramatic. Normally the audience have to wait for the performers but this time round it was different. The Sphinx and Pyramids waited patiently for us to take our seats.
It was getting cold and I was glad that I took a jacket. The sun was setting rapidly and within the blink of an eye the place was covered in darkness. It was time. Lights, action!
Dramatic story telling bring the pyramids to life. It was hard to imagine that I sat in front of the same pyramids that saw Julius Caesar and Cleopatra.
Omar El Sharif breaths life into the Giza Pyramids.
The story is narrated by Omar El Sherif. You are transformed to a mystical place where the Sphinx is telling the story. It is an amazing story of the history of Egypt. The setting cannot be better and the dazzling light show leave you breathless. It is a memorable evening and the memories will stay with me forever.
Tips for visiting the Giza Pyramids at night:
- If you can bring a tripod please do. It is difficult to take good photos because the light is not good.
- Bring something warm because the temperatures drop very quickly!
- Tours are daily all year round. October to April (Winter) the show starts at 6:30pm. May to September (summer) the show starts at 8:30pm.
