Sound and Light Shows at the Giza Pyramids

Sound and Light Shows at the Giza Pyramids

One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and a star attraction in Egypt, the pyramids of Giza offer a completely different experience at night, when lasers, lights, and visual projections bring their history to life. Here’s how to visit the pyramids after dark.

When to Go

The sound and light show at the Giza pyramids is staged in English nightly at 7pm from October to April and at 7:30pm May to September. During Ramadan the starting time is pushed to 8:30pm. Depending on demand, there’s often a second or even third showing in another language—either Italian, Spanish, French, or German.  

How to Go

It’s possible to visit the pyramids of ancient Egypt to see the nighttime spectacle—of which the Sphinx acts as the storyteller—on your own. But the most convenient option is a guided tour from Cairo, which often includes round-trip transportation from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle. Private transportation to and from the Giza plateau is another option.

Things to Know

  • Translation headsets are free for non-English speakers.

  • An evening’s second and third showings require a minimum number of spectators.

  • Plan to arrive 20 to 30 minutes before the show starts to see the monument at night and get situated.

  • Some tours include round-trip transportation from Cairo hotels to the site.
