How do we get around?
Our groups always have preferential private travel - dedicated transport from the airport to the hotel and to all the sites throughout the tour. There’s no waiting for another group to join; no visiting a dozen other hotels on the way to and from the airport and no worries about the security of your personal possessions. We also try to provide onboard facilities to take the worry out of long journeys. We use comfortable four- wheeled-drive vehicles - the indestructible Toyota Land Cruiser - for those really out-of- the-way places that some of our groups just can’t resist.

What will it cost?
Group travel with AWT can cost as little as £350 per person for a weekend museum trip and is rarely more than £1,950 per person for a week’s full blown ancient world extravaganza. Of course, it does depend how many days you want to be away, what kind of holiday you’d like, the number of free places required and how many sites you’d like to visit. We are very competitive and given what we generally include in our holidays, we are very good value for money. Our unusual itineraries are unmatched by any other company. Our portfolio of happy clients, many of whom have travelled with us ten times or more tells us that we are getting something right. Your holiday price will always include air fares, private transportation, all site entrance tickets, the services of a local guide, tour manager and archaeologist (if required) and hotel accommodation based on a share in a twin room on a bed and breakfast basis. We can arrange additional optional excursions at a small cost and locally arranged specials are always possible. If you prefer to take your own International flights we can meet you on arrival at your chosen destination and transfer you to your hotel.

How do I request a price?
All you need to do is contact us with some general information about your requirements and we’ll do the rest. We can visit you or your organization to discuss options and ensure that you’re getting exactly what you need. In general, you should think about some of the following things as these are the questions we’re likely to ask. If you don’t know the answer to any of these - don’t worry, we’ll work through them together.

How many people do you think will be travelling with you as a minimum? What itinerary would you like to follow - or would you like us to create one for you? How many days are you aiming for, what grade of hotel would you like and what, of course, would you like to see? The answers to these questions will get us working on a sample quote and itinerary for you to look at. Most of our quotes will include a free place for the organizer. Don’t forget the potential for fund- raising too.

Can I recce the tour in advance?
Certainly! You might use one of the free places of your trip to do the itinerary in advance of the tour itself if you wanted to check the hotels and sites etc. You pay in advance for the recce which is then deducted from the overall price of the holiday on departure.

Meal plans
All our quotes include breakfast as standard. Lunch and dinner can be included in the quote according to your wishes. There are some remote destinations where we recommend full board as a matter of course.

What about marketing our tour?
We can help you with this if required, preparing both A4 marketing sheets for your tours and itinerary booklets for your passengers. We can also, if appropriate make a contribution to your printing and postage costs. Your tour can even be put up on our website to attract additional members to your society or group as part of the programme. We can even use your own branding if you wish to create a professional image for the trip. We are guided by your wishes in all things and we work tirelessly to create the right image for your expedition.

Operations
Once an itinerary has been agreed and the marketing material created, AWT takes care of everything. We handle all the bookings for you, invoicing and itinerary booklets. Once on the tour, your Tour Manager or Guide will take care of everything, liaising with the local ground agents, checking you into the hotels, making sure the transport is there to take you to the sites and the entrance tickets are purchased. We deal with any operational matters during each day’s activities. Our job is to look after you and your group so you can concentrate on looking after your group members. Our superb local guides are there to respond to any requests you may have during the tour - perhaps a trip to a local bazaar or an impromptu dinner in a local restaurant? We are there to look after you throughout.
