Sound & Light Show Pyramids History will come alive for you on this unforgettable evening of entertainment, with the famous pyramids sound and light show on a plateau just outside Cairo. The show, with background music, begins with the illumination of the sphinx, who narrates the history of the pyramids and their builders. Then using laser beams and light projection on the walls of the mummification temple, desert sands, pyramid walls and the sphinx itself, the pyramids are lit up with multi coloured lights. The voice of the sphinx is so dramatic and mysterious that it makes one feel like being in a typical pharaonic atmosphere.

Approximate value: $45 USD per person
