Most of the time, of course, we're dealing with Egypt's historic, cultural and scenic drama, rather than its political. Our brilliant guides - many of them expert Egyptologists and archaeologists - bring ancient civilisations back to life before your eyes, providing exclusive insider access to private tombs, temple openings and current excavations. They reveal the secrets of Giza's monolithic pyramids, the Museum of Antiquities' treasures and The Valley of the Kings, along with iconic temples including Karnak and Hatshepsut.
And then there's the Nile. Nobody offers a luxury Nile cruise like A&K with dedicated in-house specialists and four of the best, most elegant boats on the river. Your journey between Aswan and Luxor blends history with style, serenity and divine landscapes.
And you're just starting. You can sail on vast Lake Nasser, tour the surreal White Desert, and relax on the Red Sea coast with its translucent ocean and exquisite coral. Need more? There's Alexandria's Italianate cornice kissing the Mediterranean, and the remote western oasis of Siwa. Egypt is generous with its riches.
But A&K takes you beyond the blockbuster sites. Our guides happily share vignettes of daily Egyptian life. It might be Mohammed's favourite coffee house, falafel joint, or even belly dancer: the legendary Dina appears, often unannounced, at random Cairo nightspots. If you're happy with a 3am appointment, so are we.
Best time to be there
Winter (October to April) for cultural trips, although May to September is great for the Red Sea. Ramadan is a particularly exciting time to be in Egypt - it is celebrated here with more exuberance than anywhere else in the world.
