Here, at Andante Travels, we are always delighted to learn about any awards we are nominated for – and it has been a fruitful 35 years for us! Over the last three decades, our tours have been named “Trips of a Lifetime” by National Geographic Traveler and we have won a selection of British Travel Awards, as well as other business accolades.

British Travel Awards

In 2018, we won two silver prizes at the British Travel Awards, namely the Best Travel Company to the Italian Peninsula & Malta and Best Special Interest Holiday Company titles and, most recently, we won silver and bronze at the prestigious 2019 British Travel Awards.



Luxury Lifestyle Magazine

2019, if you can believe it, has been even more successful for Andante as we won Best Specialist Tour Operator and Best Escorted Tour Operator at the Luxury Lifestyle Magazine’s Readers’ Travel Awards.


We were finalists for the Marketing Excellence prize at the South Wilts Business of the Year Awards, and we were shortlisted for USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards in the Best Educational Tour Company category.
