One of the world’s “Top Ten Learning Retreats” – National Geographic Traveller
An award-winning family-run travel company, Peter Sommer Travels, offers expert-led archaeological and cultural tours for small groups. In the past four years, we have won the UK’s Tour Operator of the Year Gold award twice and the Silver award twice.
We offer cultural vacations and holidays - primarily gulet cruises - with a professional and above all personal touch. On our escorted tours in Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Turkey and the UK, we take only small groups (some as small as a maximum of 10 guests) of like-minded people, travelling in an easy-going, informal style. Our carefully crafted journeys will take you to some of the world’s best preserved Greek and Roman ruins, with a friendly and knowledgeable expert guide ready to bring their history to life.
The guides who lead our escorted holidays in Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Turkey and the UK, are true specialists - archaeologists, historians and travel writers - natural enthusiasts steeped in Croatian, Greek, Sicilian and Turkish history and culture. We choose our tour guides not just because they are extremely knowledgeable, but because they are great communicators and friendly hosts.
