The sound and light shows in Egypt are decently done... Don't go there expecting lazer lights and crazy things like that, basically you get a chance to see these historical temples, artifacts, and pyramids under night lights with a story of the Pharaohs and people of that time, wars, etc... There are light shows at 3 main locations in Egypt; The Pyramids at Giza, The Temples of Karnak and Luxor in Luxor, and the Temple of Isis at Philae in Aswan. You must look online at to find the right hours and language for your party, English is fairly common and will be easy to find a time and day for that, so if you speak English or understand it fairly well you wont have much of a problem.

The pricing of the shows varies, obviously the Pyramids are the most expensive going down to the temple of Philae... The prices are as follows:

Pyramids: 60/30 EGP (adult/child) no student discount

Luxor & Karnak: 55/44 EGP (adult/child) no student discount

*Isis at Philae: 55 EGP (everyone) no child/student discount

Videos 35 EGP (depending on place)

*Although there are no discounts to read of in a lot of places, you may find that you can bargain a deal for students or children. Honestly when we went, we showed our ISIC Student Identification cards without asking and they chopped the fee in half for us. Its worth a shot.

*The reason there is an asterisk on "Isis at Philae" is that although this is not the most expensive show, it is probably the most interesting... not a lazer light show or anything more special in that respect, but its well-done and historically interesting.

*Videos of the shows can be purchased for the above prices
