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 for this milestone 15th year in a row,” said Hilton. “Our team serves as true advisors—so much more than ‘travel agents!’—as we ensure clients maximize their experiences with optimal engagement to any destination around the globe. I’m particularly thrilled with the timing of this recognition as this fall our team is beginning to design a 2019 luxury trip to Egypt which I look forward to personally escorting.”
