Our group tours vary from logistically complex trips for large organizations to small groups of like-minded friends with a common interest. Each and very one gets the same attention to detail. And there is no limit to what kind of group tour we can organize for you. We’ve done religious to sports tours and just about everything in between. We’re always fascinated to find out what each group’s special interest is.
We provide our clients with flexibility, working to different budgets and creating the itinerary that fits the bill. We can also supply tour managers and experts if required. Take a following look at what we can do for the many different types of group we organize.
School and university groups
AWT is aware of the place educational travel can play in student life. We offer Ancient History and Archaeology school tours as well Cultural and Art tours to Europe. We can work with your school curriculum and create a tour that combines educational content with the safe experience of a modern-day culture. We’ll also ensure the right mix of formal discussion and learning from the teaching staff, to informal guiding from our resident experts. AWT is also keen to promote cross - cultural awareness and visits to local schools can be made by arrangement as part of your itinerary.
Astronomy World Tours
AWT are leading experts in travel for solar eclipses and we arranged fantastic eclipse tours in 2010 to Russia and China. In 2006, our special Eclipse programmes made us one of the largest operators in Egypt, Libya and Turkey during the eclipse period. These tours were all a huge success. We were able to offer astronomers tours that were utterly unique - wonderful dark skies and easy access to remote locations unspoilt by light pollution, partnered by some of the greatest archaeology in the world.
AWT also has access to some of the UK’s most well-known astronomers, to create many different types of tour in spectacular destinations. We’d love to hear from your astronomy group or society about the trip you’d like to make - and we’ll make it happen.
If you run a photography group we can take any itinerary and turn it into a great photography trip. We do the research to find you near-perfect scenery and sites to photograph. We ensure our trips are entertaining, relaxing as well as a wonderful way to learn. You will have an expert guide at all times so you can fully concentrate on your group.
Whether it’s a fund-raiser for your own society or a way of supporting another organization, AWT group tours can be a great way to raise funds. We typically agree a ‘capitation’ fee paid for each passenger booked on a trip. Clients have been able to raise thousands of pounds every year this way and have a wonderful time in the process. Not only can we supply the fundraising itinerary for you, or work with you to create your own special one, but we always supply a local guide, from our very select band of experts. We can also supply a UK Tour Manager and even your own archaeologist to accompany the tour if required.
Friends and family
It might be a silver wedding anniversary, a special birthday or even a family reunion; AWT is ready to make your event a special one. Groups of friends travel with us all the time and we can cater for almost every taste. We can provide a tour with the best a country has to offer, followed by a relaxing beach holiday extension. We have organized Nile Cruises, wildlife safaris, family diving holidays and, of course, our forte, explorations of the great ancient sites of the world. We’ll pull a special party together for a family member in an unforgettable location. We also know how to keep a secret - so if you want to give someone the surprise of a lifetime, just talk to us.
