Very good, Excellent company; outstanding tour manager, and knowledgeable and entertaining guide, and a lovely hotel. Guest Pompeii, Herculaneum and Classical Campania , March 2022
It was very good. I enjoyed Tony Wilmott’s tour leadership and company throughout and met a number of most likeable people, as I always expect on Andante tours. The programme was well thought out with a different theme each day, which made for a varied and busy schedule, which is how I like it. Guest Pompeii, Herculaneum and Classical Campania , March 2022
Very enjoyable. Very varied. Well organised and exceptionally well led John and Lois. Very full days and some long walks followed by excellent food at the hotel made for a good night's sleep! Guest Romans on the Bay of Naples , March 2022
We had an incredible time, we learnt so much and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Your team were very friendly, helpful and always there for advice. Suzannah Lipscomb was informative, witty and a delight and we are looking forward to our next Andante adventure. Denise and Stuart Vowles Henry VIII Hampton Court , April 2022
Flawless. The combination of an incredibly efficient, helpful, organised and friendly and tour leader, a knowledgeable but approachable expert who explained things clearly and a large human touch and a fantastic driver made for a very relaxing, stress-free way to holiday. Guest Romans on the Bay of Naples , March 2022
Enjoyed the hotel and very friendly and professional staff. Charming location. The tour was very comprehensive with a chance to see the local countryside as well as the Roman sites. I enjoyed the company of our fellow travellers and the expertise of both our lecturer and our tour manager. Guest Romans on the Bay of Naples , March 2022
I joined the Hampton Court visit on Thursday and it surpassed my expectations. It was very worthwhile and Suzannah Lipscomb brought the palace to life with her knowledge and stories. Brian Henry VIII Hampton Court , April 2022
Just a quick note to say how much we have enjoyed the Andante Lindsey Davis trip to Rome (we returned last night). Oliver was a really outstanding guide, and we'd be grateful if you could pass on our thanks and appreciation. Lindsey was of course as wonderful as always! Overall we had a brilliant time.This was our first experience of Andante, and despite all the delays and upheavals, it has proved to be excellent. We shall certainly look at doing other trips with you. Guest Falcos Rome with Lindsey Davis , March 2022
The whole trip was brilliant, made even better by such wonderful companions. The accommodation was delightful, the Egyptian food delicious and the sites were magic. As a veteran traveller to Egypt (13 times), I was astonished at the number of sites completely unknown to me. Every day was full of new wonders. And the guidance of Lucia and Galal made the whole trip second to none! Guest Egypt - Off the Beaten Track , February 2022
