News update - 7th January 2022
You will be delighted to know that the government has now confirmed the removal of its pre-departure test requirements for passengers coming into the UK. Self-isolation on arrival will no longer be required and, instead, a lateral flow test will need to be taken within 48 hours of arrival. Should the test be positive, a PCR test should be taken. These new changes began as of 4am on Friday, 7th January
Kayley is a treasure: so friendly and helpful and clearly well able to deal with the organisational problems this tour through up given the current circumstances. Guest Christmas in York , January 2022
I have closely followed all your endeavours in making the most of an impossible situation in the travel market. Your enterprise and positive approach have been very impressive, and you should be very proud of what you have attempted and hopefully succeeded with in some cases. How you have managed to maintain your drive and enthusiasm is truly commendable. Mr Giles September 2021
Albania is a really interesting country and we were glad to have the opportunity to visit, especially in the company of such a well-informed guide. For us, the travelling experience is what counts and we are not that bothered about the quality of the hotels. Guest Albania - Land of the Eagles , October 2021
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this tour. It was well planned and busy without being exhausting. There was always time to pause and consider what you had learned. John Oxley was absolutely excellent and made the whole story of the Kingdom of Northumbria come alive for us, as well as giving a wonderful insight into Roman York. I was wishing it was longer! Guest The Kingdom of Northumbria , October 2021
Very well organised and thought through. All happened seamlessly and on time – really good information and opportunities to get to some off the beaten track places. Guest The Kingdom of Northumbria , October 2021
The programme was well thought out. The sites were varied and interesting, the hotel was comfortable, the Guide lecturer and tour manager were both excellent. The fellow guests were agreeable. Guest The Archaeology of the Isle of Man , October 2021
Excellent accommodation, food, tour guide, tour manager and itinerary. Pauline Miller Pompeii, Herculaneum and Classical Campania , October 2021

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.
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
