Underwhelming show. Lighting was poor so you could hardly see the structures illuminated. It’s a good 10 min walk to the site. And when it was over, we were rushed out. We went in the off season, that’s July. We had tickets from a pre...More

A very well presented show 45 mins 19:30 to 20:15. Free head sets to get English narration - a great setting at night and very pleasant after the high 40s day temperatures. Definitely recommend.

Great way to get stunning pictures of the temple and the show was good but there’s better ones in Egypt. The language of the show depends on the majority of the spectators (our was in Spanish) but individual translating headsets are available.

Much better than of Karnak and better than of Giza. They project it on two mountains. Just they more powerful projectors. The show was in Spanish only so I got a translator for English for free.

This show is more recent than the one we saw at the Great Pyramids. It is thus more spectacular and truly add to the experience of a visit to the temple. S.

We flew from Aswan to Abu Simbel, and then back to Aswan the next day. Well worth it. Saves a lot of time. And worth the extra expense.
