Private Tours for Groups and Organisations

From the very moment we began creating archaeological, historical and cultural itineraries over 35 years ago, our team here at Andante Travels has been providing bespoke arrangements for a number of private groups, societies and alumnae associations. The tours we’ve created for such customers have been wide-ranging, covering themes such as opera, specific periods throughout history and even gastronomy combined with archaeology.

The tours we tailor-make for our clients tend to include accommodation throughout, all transportation, entry costs and the services of a professional tour manager or guide. Having our experts at the helm ensures for smooth running and unwavering attention to detail, meaning you can sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that your ancient-world tour or cultural journey will be as immersive, insightful and enjoyable as possible.

Our goal, from the moment you first make contact, is to fully understand the requirements of your group and to then create an itinerary to suit the needs of its members, however many or few that may be. For Andante, no challenge is too big and no question too small – our passion is putting together an experience that will not only meet, but exceed your expectations, from budget to bucket list and everything in between.

How we do it

We put so much thought into the way we craft our private group holidays. There are lots of factors, but no matter your needs, rest assured we’ll be able to combine them into your perfect tour.

Group size

A small group of friends, a club of fifty, or anything in between — no matter the number, we’ll find the visits and hotels that offer the perfect fit.


Plane, train, or coach — how will you get to your destination? We figure out the cost and itinerary implications so you can make an informed choice.

Room and board

5* luxury accommodation and pre-dinner drinks or rustic hotels and independent meals? You decide on the particulars, and we’ll factor it all into your total price.

Tour destination

Let us know where it is you’d love to explore, what time of year you want to visit and for how many days, and we’ll do the rest. A week of opera in Norway? Art galleries in Russia over a long weekend? Hard-to-find archaeological sites in remote locations? A three-week adventure where wildlife and culture await discovery? Leave it to us.

All inclusive

Because your private groups tour with us is tailor-made, you can ensure that everything is included or you can cherry pick what comes under the final price. This is entirely up to you.

How it works

We don’t provide possible prices or sample itineraries for private groups tours for the simple reason that every request is completely different and the details depend on a variety of factors. We consider the standard of accommodation, meal basis, the time of year, the group size, and whether or not you’d like a tour manager or guide to accompany you. So, for the most precise quote, we would advise you to get in touch and request a tailor-made package.
