I so enjoy travelling with Andante, in the company of an expert Guide Lecturer AND a Tour Manager, who takes all the worry out of travelling. Everything is catered for from Day 1 to the end. I recommend Andante if you haven't travelled with them before. Sarah July 2023
Nice group, extremely well organized, brilliant guide (Nick Jackson), and excellent support from Anna Vigetti and local guide Jemail. Conducted at an intellectually stimulating level. Guest Jordan - Petra and the Desert Fortresses , March 2023
Very good; I really enjoyed every single one of the seven days in Santorini and Crete. The entire tour was extremely well organised and guides were excellent. Guest Crete and Santorini , May 2023
Wonderful from start to finish. We were so well looked after, I’ve never been on a trip like this before but I will certainly be going on more after this! Guest Pompeii, Herculaneum and Classical Campania , March 2023
A truly remarkable and exciting trip that just kept on giving; I didn't realise that so much of Roman Rome was indeed ‘Hidden’! S. Thomas Hidden Rome , April 2023
“It was an excellent and full experience: Tony O'Connor’s accounts of the sites were very accessible and informative, Mary Reynolds' care of everyone in the group was second to none, and the friendliness of Sami (our local guide) completed a highly satisfactory trip.” Mrs Coulson Tunisia North & South , February 2023
“Most enjoyable - our first tour with Andante, and the best experience with a tour company we’ve had so far. Good company, great hotel, brilliant lecturer, and delightful tour guide who could not have done more for us. We particularly liked the fact that so much was included, including wine with dinner!” Guest Romans on the Bay of Naples , March 2023

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.
