Start your perfect journey into the ancient world...
Andante Travels have been helping curious people travel the world for 35 years. We are one of the world's leading providers of archaeological, cultural and historical holidays.
From the ruins and ancient Greece 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.
Meet our guide lecturers
Our guide lecturers are a cut above your average tour guide. They are your academic host and their role is to enlighten and inspire you throughout your trip. They will explain how what we can see today links up with ancient culture, with vivid stories and in-depth knowledge.
We work closely with our expert guide lecturers to plan tours with sites that give you as detailed a picture as possible; not only of the area you're visiting, but its place in a wider picture.
Add in a healthy dose of good humour and the stage is set for a fun and inspiring trip. See our guest reviews for more details, find a guide lecturer for your chosen subject and reserve your place on their next tour.
A great big THANK YOU to you and Oliver for such a lovely interesting Sicily trip - such a lot of history and wonderful sites to visit - just loved it all! Ms Slevin Classical Sicily
Kayley was wonderful! We really appreciated all the organisational adjustments she had to make to rescue the trip and she is a real asset to Andante. Guest - 2020 Highlights of Hadrians Wall
Andante have enabled us to be able to visit wonderful places, understand history and cultures and visit off the beaten track sites. Our guide lecturers have shared their knowledge and enriched our journeys into the past, as have the local guides. Tour managers have looked after our needs, found interesting restaurants and introduced us to local cuisine. We’ve met many interesting fellow travellers and have had truly memorable and stimulating trips. Brian and Angela Haigh
400+ reasons that our guests experience more with Andante
We're experts on historical trips, archaeology and more. Don't just take our word for it - we ask all guests to leave reviews on Feefo, an independent reviews platform.
Reviews are unfiltered, unedited and straight from previous customers. Earlier this year, we were delighted to find out that we have won the Platinum Trusted Service Award from Feefo. This means that we have achieved at least 50 reviews at a rating of at least 4.5 stars out of 5! Ordinarily, this alone would have granted us “Gold Award” status, but due to the fact we’ve reached this milestone now for three years running we have now been crowned a Platinum winner.
A very well organised programme of visits, accompanied by very professional and knowledgeable guides. Excellent information from the company. Feefo reviewer
