Special Access

Something we pride ourselves on is the special access to which we can treat you. Travelling with Andante means that you are choosing to explore the world in the company of esteemed experts. Our Guide Lecturers and in-house staff have spent over 35 years building strong relationships with people on the ground, which allows us to lift the curtain on many money-can’t-buy experiences. From behind-the-scenes visits in museums that will see you stand before amazing artefacts in store rooms off-limits to the public to special access to archaeological sites in destinations around the world, an Andante Travels tour is a fantastic opportunity to make lasting memories. If your tour includes special access, it will be outlined within the itinerary.
