Andante Travels

Celebrating its 35th birthday next year, Andante Travels has evolved over the years to become one of the world’s leading providers of archaeological, cultural and historical holidays. From the ruins at ancient Pompeii to Ethiopia’s almost mystical town of Lalibela where UNESCO-listed rock-hewn churches inspire awe and wonder in any visitor – there are very few corners of the ancient world left undiscovered by Andante travellers.

Andante’s team of experts both in-house and on the ground in destinations around the globe work hard to ensure that each itinerary is created with the guest’s experience at the heart of it all. The trips offered are diverse and range from food tours to archaeological adventures, and from art history explorations to musical journeys. Special access at working archaeological sites, opportunities to handle artefacts or tour museums in private, the chance to stand before artistic masterworks at iconic galleries away from the crowds, and invitations to meet creatives during hands-on workshops are just a few of the ways in which Andante provides unique and memorable encounters to its valued customers.

Above all, Andante Travels offers holidays – not just study tours. From hand-picked accommodation, the chance to indulge in regional cuisine at meal times and the services of an expert guide lecturer as well as an experienced tour manager, to all entries and tips to sites visited along the way – they have everything covered so you can start your holiday the minute you lock the door behind you.
