Andante Travels

Founded over 30 years ago, Andante Travels has grown to become one of the world’s leading providers of archaeological holidays. From Pompeii, to Petra; from the Great Wall of China, to the Viking long halls of Denmark, there are very corners of the ancient world left unexplored by Andante travellers.

From its inception, every Andante Travel tour has been planned and led by experts: archaeologists, historians and writers who bring the past to life. On almost all our tours we also go ‘behind the scenes’ and enjoy special access to many ancient sites, museums and monuments.

Above all, we strive to create unique experiences for all our travellers: standing in the inner circle of Stonehenge as the sun rises; tiptoeing among the mummies, after hours at Cairo Museum; or entering the hallowed secret archives of the Vatican library.

We should also mention that Andante tours are most definitely holidays – not study tours. We welcome people from all walks of life, and all over the world, many friendships have been made (and even the odd romance has blossomed) on tour. In addition to expert guidance every trip includes excellent food, hand-picked hotels, a professional tour manager and free time. The perfect way to see the ancient world in style.
