A very nice experience in the evening. Even if it was a bit chilly, we really enjoyed the show. The combination between the lighting effects and the audio performance come across well. Since the show is not offered in German, you can experience the show in translation via headphones, but we decided not to do so in order to experience the change in sound between the differently positioned speakers. The VIP seats were a good idea as it gave us a front row seat and an unobstructed view of everything. A little tip: Pay attention to the temperature in the evening and dress accordingly! It was a bit too cool for the month of March and we had to dress warmer accordingly. Also pay attention to the language selection. The show runs twice in different languages in the evening! Overall highly recommended.

we booked plane (for a fee don't forget it ....) sounds lights and dinner and French speaking guide ... The guide spoke French as well as I did Arabic ... But I must admit that he really took on three moves in two stages, he got it right, and he really did. Again a big thank you to this young guide, from the company EMO. On the other hand, I am surprised by the Ste Get your guide because it is usually a Ste serious.

Fantastic experience!!!

Omar was our guide for the night. Traffic from Cairo was a bit heavier than expected so we arrived at our hotel at 6:00 which is when we were scheduled to be picked up. Omar was waiting and pleasantly let us know not to worry and out us at ease. Upon areiving at the show Omar took care of securing our entrance tickets and got us some great seats! The show was awesome and informative. A MUST DO at the pyramids!!!! Omar took us to a great rooftop dinner spot very close to the show where we had chicken, fish, soup, salad, etc. Overall great experience and Omar was a great guide and host for the evening!
