Tui Al Horeya

LEGENDS OF THE NILE – TUI AL HOREYA

The brand new, adult-only, Tui Al Horeya will give a contemporary twist to the traditional Nile river cruise ship. TUI Al Horeya (which translates from Arabic as “freedom”) is a River Nile cruise for adults-only and it features a restaurant and two bars. You can relax in the wellness area or on the top deck, which lines up a pool, a pair of hot tubs and a dining area for al fresco dinners.

All-inclusive Nile cruise package tours will start from November 2024 and are available to book now from just £1499pp.

Tui River Cruises have announced a new expansion into Egypt & the glorious River Nile with this fresh ‘Legends of the Nile’ package experience.

Tui Al Horeya – for adults-only – is an all-inclusive Nile cruise experience, so all your food and drink at the two bars, the main restaurant and the al fresco dining area is all included as part of the package. There’s also a wellness area, an onboard Egyptologist (who knows everything, test them!), plenty of activities and entertainment, plus a top deck with a pool, a couple of hot tubs and a sunbathing area.

The Atrium is the main hub of the ship. It’s where you’ll find the reception desk, the shore experiences desk, and the Cruise Director’s desk. They’re all on hand to help with any questions, and you can book your shore experiences here, too. There’s a self-serve tea and coffee station here as well, that’s on hand 24/7.

The main restaurant’s got a bright, modern feel to it, and it’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a mix of buffet and à la carte options to choose from. You can dine out in the open at this top deck eatery. It’s open for light bites at lunch, then dinner’s an à la carte affair, which you’ll need to reserve a table for. But don’t worry, it’s still part of your all-inclusive package. The light and contemporary lounge is the ship’s main bar, and hosts the nightly entertainment which ranges from local acts to live music, quizzes and films. You can stay on top of your workout routine at the wellness area, which comes complete with fitness equipment and a space for exercise classes. If you want to take things a little easier, you can treat yourself to a massage. The top deck’s split into different zones for relaxation and activities. There’s a pool and a couple of hot tubs to dip in, with plenty of sun loungers around them to chill out on. And there’s a bar and a restaurant up here, too.

Day 8: Luxor

Edfu – on the west bank of the Nile in Egypt – is a small city dating back to 3000BC. Today, its main attraction is the Temple of Horus. Practice your haggling skills at the row of street stalls lining the entrance, before stepping through the 36-metre-high gateway to get inside the complex. This place was buried in desert sand around 200 years ago, which helped keep everything intact – including the roof. Once you’re there, don’t miss its chapel. It’s decorated with colourful inscriptions depicting the birth of Horus – a god with the body of a man and the head of a falcon.

This trip takes you to the Temple of Horus – Edfu’s most famous landmark, and the largest and most intact pharaonic temple in Egypt. When you arrive, you can practice your haggling skills with the traders who line the entrance with their street stalls before you step through the 36-metre-high gateway and into the complex. You’ll have a certified Egyptologist with you the whole time, who’ll be on hand to point everything out and answer any questions. And make sure you visit the chapel while you’re here. It’s decorated with colourful inscriptions depicting the birth of Horus – a god with the body of a man and the head of a falcon. Just so you know, this experience is included as part of your cruise booking.

Aswan is Egypt’s southernmost city, and once acted as a gateway into Ancient Egypt. Along with well-preserved archaeological sites, Aswan’s also home to botanical gardens and museums dedicated to the history of the River Nile and Ancient Egypt. The gardens are pitched on an island that floats in the middle of the River Nile, so it’s the perfect place to go if you fancy escaping the city. For all things Ancient Egypt head to the Nubian Museum – it’s home to a haul of artefacts that will help you piece together thousands of years of Egyptian history. Or, if you fancy heading outside of the city, you can take off on a trip to the temples in Abu Simbel. Looking at its solid structure you’d never know it, but this temple complex once stood in Aswan. It was moved to higher ground after the Aswan High Dam was built, to save it from being flooded.

You’ll have a couple of experiences on this Nubian village tour and boat trip in Aswan. It all starts with a short motorboat ride to a traditional Nubian village that’s set on its own island. First, there’s a guided a tour of the village, which is filled with spice shops, riverside cafés and rainbow-hued houses that bring it to life. You’ll get to mingle with some of the friendly locals and hear their native language, Nuba, before you set off for the second part of your trip – a felucca ride along the Nile. These traditional, canvas-sailed boats have been part of the furniture here for yonks, and you’ll be sable to sit back and take in the views along the riverbank while you glide along. You’ll also have a certified Egyptologist with you for the whole tour, who’ll be on hand to point out the sights and answer any lingering questions.

Kom Ombo is a firm favourite with history buffs, who flock here to see the town’s famous temple, which has been standing for more than 2000 years. It’s pretty unique, too, as it’s a double temple – after the Ancient Egyptians had moved on, the Romans came in and added an extension and much of it’s still standing. The original temple was dedicated to Sobek, the crocodile God, and next door, you can take a wander around a museum where mummified crocs are on display.

On this tour, you’ll head to Kom Ombo’s biggest sight, which has a couple of unique hallmarks. Firstly, it’s a double temple, so it’s dedicated to two gods instead of one, and secondly, everything’s perfectly symmetrical along its main axis, which is also pretty uncommon among Egypt’s ancient temples. You’ll hear more about these quirks and plenty of other details from the certified Egyptologist who’ll guide you around all the temple’s courts, halls and sanctuaries, and point out the riverside spot where sacred crocs used to bask in the sun. Just so you know, this experience is included as part of your cruise booking.
