The Ramesseum is the mortuary temple of Ramesses II (Ramesses Meryamun Usermaatre Setepenre, also known as Ramesses the Great). It was intended to house the mortuary cult of the king when he died but was also dedicated to the god Amun. Explore the temple and tombs on a 2-hour private tour from Luxor. This private tour accommodates your group of up to 15 people and includes pickup and drop-off in Luxor, entrance fees, and guided visits with your Egyptologist guide. This private tour can be customized to your schedule with a variety of start times, including early departures that take advantage of cooler morning temperatures.
Begin with pickup at your cruise ship or Luxor hotel at 6 am, 7 am, or 8 am, then travel to the Ramesseum Temple in a private vehicle, a roughly 40-minute trip. Explore the mortuary temple that was built by Pharaoh Ramesses II, from the king’s massive, 62-foot (19-mt) memorial statue to a series of intricate reliefs depicting battles and festival scenes.
As well as depictions of the afterlife, begin the return trip to Luxor, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel or cruise ship.
