The Local Scene

The Great Pyramids of Giza and other treasures of Egypt have beckoned travellers for more than two millennia, evoking images of powerful dynasties swept away by the sands of time. On an A&K journey to this timeless destination, explore venerable tombs and temples to piece together the life and times of one of the world's greatest ancient civilizations.

Let A&K reveal Egypt's secrets in unqualified comfort. Cruise the fabled Nile in style — like the pharaohs once did — on ‘Sun Boat IV’ (in 2014) or ‘Sun Boat III’ (in 2015) disembarking at iconic sites as well as little-known temples. Travel in the company of the region's best Egyptologists, whose dedication to your journey is rivaled only by their passion for local art, history and culture. Discover the Aswan islands by felucca (traditional sailboat), or privately tour the famous Egyptian Museum of Antiquities, home to artifacts recovered from the great Tutankhamun's tomb.

Whether you are a first-time traveller to this fascinating land or a seasoned visitor, A&K unveils the best of Egypt.
