Escorted tours are a fantastic solution for solo travelers because not only can you leave all the organizing to someone else, you can head off on your trip safe in the knowledge that you will travel as part of a group and among individuals who share your particular interest.
A COMPANIONABLE EXPERIENCE
Our expert-led tours are inclusive, informal and fun, and Andante guests are some of the most interesting people you could care to meet. Traveling in a party of people who share your interests is an enriching experience and friendships are quickly formed, with some lasting for decades.
As part of an Andante escorted tour, you have the reassurance that our tour staff are very much part of the group. Unlike some guides who only engage when leading and make themselves scarce as soon as the opportunity arises, our staff are with you every step of the way - sharing the same experiences, enjoying the same meals (and often the same tipple at the bar!), and laughing at the same anecdotes told by your fellow travelers. Meal times are therefore never solitary, evenings are never dull and our tours are delightfully companionable.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE INDIVIDUAL
We may travel as a group, but we always respect the individual. There is no badge-wearing, umbrella-waving, roll-calling or whistle-blowing on Andante tours. And, wherever possible, we build time into our site visits to allow our guests the freedom to explore and make discoveries of their own.
So, if you're a solo traveler, you will be pleased to know that we have some fantastic offers available to help make your ancient world adventures more affordable. We have three initiatives to choose between: the first is tours with dedicated zero single supplement spaces, the second is tours with low single supplements and the third is tours with 50% discount on existing single supplements, so there's something to suit every solo traveler.
Please note that there are limited numbers of zero single supplement places available on each of the selected departures, and when they’re gone, they’re gone. So please book early to avoid disappointment.
