Malaka Hilton, founder and president of Admiral Travel International, has been recognized for the 14th consecutive year as an Egypt Specialist on Travel + Leisure's 15th annual A-List. The annual Travel + Leisure program showcases the best specialists in the travel business, the industry leaders who have firsthand knowledge of destinations on the rise, are able to provide unique access for their clients and provide comprehensive insider travel guidance.
Hilton was recognized during the Travel + Leisure A-List reception held at Hyde Bellagio in Las Vegas on August 9, 2016, during Virtuoso Travel Week.
Hilton, whose father was born in Egypt, has expertly hosted hundreds of travelers to the destination in addition to designing customized itineraries for clients who desire to travel independently to the Nile Valley region and around the globe. 
“It’s an honor to be recognized by Travel + Leisure as an A-List advisor each year since 2003,” said Hilton. “I feel so privileged to create journeys for discerning travelers to Egypt and all of the world’s greatest destinations. I take pride in serving as a true advisor—so much more than ‘travel agent!’—ensuring our clients maximize efficiency and optimal engagement while traveling as they enjoy truly-unique access and experiences tailored to their priorities.” 
Founded in 1997, Admiral Travel International rapidly established a niche in the luxury travel market by offering one-of-a-kind escorted group departures to Egypt and safaris throughout Africa. Today, the Virtuoso-member travel agency based in downtown Sarasota provides expanded, specialized services in designing and orchestrating a variety of departures to adventure-based, historic and luxurious food and wine meccas, or any destination of a client’s choice.
