The guide, Aristotle, made the tour. He was knowledgeable, articulate, amiable and worked extraordinarily hard. His illustrated lectures and files of drawings of site reconstructions which he shared on our hikes, added a very great deal. Andante should encourage voluntary gratuities for such tour leaders: he WAS the tour!
There were visits to some truly memorable sites and events, especially the Weis Church and the unforgettable Passion Play at Oberammeragau. Our Tour Manager was exceptional.
Fascinating with absolutely the right balance of information sharing and experience, activity and experience. The Ness of Brodgar and the stones of Stennes will stay with us forever or at least until we go back. The organisation by the Andante guides was absolutely faultless.
Excellent in all respects. Guide and tour manager both excellent and worked well together. Organ recital at the end was outstanding. Guide was soft spoken so whisper headsets would have been appropriate.
