Which ANDANTE
                                          		 tour is right for you?
                                          From countless opportunities to travel with renowned experts in archaeology
                                          to ancient world cruise voyages, and from cultural adventures in far-flung
                                          destinations to shorter, more affordable archaeological escapes – we are
                                          sure to have something for you. Andante offers a range of vacations that
                                          caters to a variety of budgets and interests alike, which enable you to choose
                                          an experience that suits you. Why? Well, because we understand that every
                                          traveler is an individual and there is no such thing as ‘one tour fits all’.




                                          Delve deeper into the world of archaeology
                                          If archaeology and history are passions of yours, we recommend our classic escorted
                                          group tours. Designed and led by experts, the itineraries can take you to some of the
                                          most iconic sites in the world as well as those considered to be lesser-known. From
                                          the incredible temples at Baalbek in Lebanon and the much-discussed ancient site of
                                          Troy, to the legendary Pompeii and even Egypt – the choices are endless. What’s more,
                                          our escorted group tours are all led by revered guide lecturers, meaning you’ll get
                                          first-hand expert insight throughout.

                                          • Some of these departures feature special access to excavations sites, museums and
                                            ruins – experiences that aren’t open to general tourists
                                          • You’ll travel in the company of a leading expert, meaning that visits to sites will
                                            ultimately be more immersive, interesting and memorable
                                          • Ahead of your tour with us, you’ll receive an interesting booklet of field notes

Surround yourself with culture
Perhaps you’re looking for a vacation that’s lighter on the archaeology, but
heavier on the culture? If so, our Cultural Journeys range is for you. Created
to showcase each destination’s true heart through immersive experiences,
personal encounters with local people and visits to sites that can put your
chosen locations into both social and historic contexts, these are enriching
travel experiences that will linger in the memory long after you return home
and can help shape your world view. From Brazil and Greenland, to Nepal and
Costa Rica, discover more about our wonderful world on one of these tours.

How about a back-to-basics approach?
If it’s an ancient-world adventure you’re after, but you simply don’t have the
time or budget for one of our fuller-bodied tours, our Bare Bones collection
would be a perfect fit. You'll travel around in the company of a local guide rather
than one of our guide lecturers, and there will be more free time as well as
flexibility to choose your own dining experiences, with fewer meals included. A
5-day trip to the amazing site of Pompeii, a 6-day journey to the site of ancient
Troy, or a chance to delve into the stories of the Minoans on a short Greek break
all await with Bare Bones.

designed tours range from 12-20 days, and showcase phenomenal sites both iconic and lesser known in all corners of the globe.

  the seasons as new discoveries
  are often being made or new villas
  are being opened up to the public.
  Our 2020 departures will be extra
  special because we’ve secured

On the rise -
Serbia & Albania

to have you join us there. So, where are
we talking about? Well, places on the rise
are Serbia and Albania – both of which

Frequently asked questions
What level of knowledge do I need?
The honest answer? None at all! All you need to enjoy a vacation
with Andante Travels is enthusiasm. People with a wide range of
experience – from experts and amateurs, to the merely curious –
come on tours with us. They are suited to all interest levels.


Are Andante’s tours suitable for solo travelers?
Absolutely! We have single places available on all of our tours
and these are very popular – often being the first to fill. Many
long-lasting friendships have been formed on our tours over the
past 35 years and solo guests often return year after year to
travel once again with the new friends they’ve made.


Will there be opportunities to experience local culture?
Of course. We do our very best to give you everything a country
has to offer because part of traveling is to delve into the local
way of life. Where we can, we will take you to a local festival or
market, or offer you an invitation to a working excavation site.


Do you accept late bookings?
We understand that the thrill of travel can take hold at any
moment so yes, of course we do! However, we always recommend
booking as early as possible to ensure the best price for your
trip (and to make sure you don’t miss out, of course). Our sales
consultants are always happy to help with late availability.


How much spending money will I need?
We include as much as possible on our tours, so you shouldn’t
need much extra money. However, if your departure includes
free time or independent meals, you’ll need to consider currency
to cover these. What’s more, there might also be optional
excursions on offer and you may find a souvenir or two to buy.            What’s included in the price of a tour?
                                                                          As mentioned before, we try to include as much as possible

Will a member of staff be on hand to help at all times?
                                                                          Accommodation, entry fees to all sites listed in each program will

Ratings explained
We have designed a grading system to help you understand
how strenuous or relaxed your tour is likely to be. The levels are
determined by components that make up a tour, such as the
distance and terrain walked, the driving distances covered and
each day’s length.

Activity Level



Level 1 - Gentle
A tour that is determined as gentle will
have a relaxed pace, with little walking
and less exertion where travel and day
length are concerned.

Level 2 - Light
On light tours, anticipate mild walking
with a mostly relaxed pace. There will
be more visits and traveling than on
our gentle tours, but not by much.


Level 3 - Moderate
A decent level of fitness is required for
our moderate tours. There could be
walking between sites, more standing
and traveling to encounter.

Level 4 - Active
If you choose an active tour, come
prepared for longer days – and ones
that fit more in. More walking, bigger
distances covered and more energy!


Level 5 - Challenging
For challenging tours, you’ll need to
be physically fit. Days could include
long drives, hikes and multiple visits,
meaning they’ll be lengthy and tiring.

                                           In 1633, citizens in the Bavarian village of Oberammergau were struck by the deadly
                                           plague. They decided to make a promise to God that if no more lives were cut short by
                                           the disease, they would get together every 10 years to re-enact His life, suffering, death,
                                           and subsequent resurrection. Miraculously, the villagers’ lives were spared and so, a
                                           year later in 1634, the once-per-decade Passion Play of Oberammergau saw its inaugural
                                           performance. 2020 marks the 42nd performance of this legendary event and it truly is a
                                           bucket-list worthy experience. Don’t miss your chance to witness this iconic spectacle.

except the historic beer hall were destroyed in the Second World War bombings.
Day Three | Munich
Our morning is dedicated to Munich’s magnificent Residenz, Germany’s largest
city palace and official home of the royal Wittelsbach family. The first buildings
here were erected in 1385 as a castle, and over time it was transformed by
its rulers into a magnificent palace. It now contains 10 courtyards and over
100 rooms. Later, we drive through the beautiful scenery of the Bavarian Alps
towards the tiny town of Oberammergau, home to the world famous Passion
Play that takes place just once every ten years. We have dinner at our hotel later

Following a morning at leisure to soak up the atmosphere, we gather together
to attend the legendary Passion Play. The play will be a unique and traditional
experience, performed by the residents of Oberammergau. Dinner is included

Passion of Jesus Christ, from his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, through his
trial, crucifixion, resurrection and finally his Ascension.

city with a rich, diverse history and influential music heritage. Our morning tour
