Exceptional cultural tours, escorted tours and luxury cruises led by a team of the finest specialist tour leaders - archaeologists, historians and travel writers - who are steeped in the history and culture of Turkey, Greece and Italy.
In 1994, Peter Sommer walked 2,000 miles across Turkey, retracing the route of Alexander the Great, and in the process fell in love with the country, its ancient civilizations, and the Turkish people.
A British archaeologist, film-maker, and highly experienced tour guide, Peter created Peter Sommer Travels in 1996, offering unique escorted tours and cruises in Turkey, Greece & Italy. A UK-based specialist travel operator, we provide a select number of holidays and vacations with a professional and above all personal touch.
Small groups: We take only small groups (normally a max of 16 on land or sea) of like-minded people, travelling in an easy-going, friendly, and informal style. Our expertise stems from an especially intimate knowledge of the countries we visit - their geography, history, people, and much more.
Over the past ten years we have created a rich and varied collection of escorted cultural tours - archaeology tours and cruises with a difference.
Our tours bring to life the rich heritage of Turkey, Greece & Italy from profoundly ancient times to the modern era. Come sailing, cruising, or exploring with us, and see some of the very finest temples and tombs, baths and aqueducts, theatres and castles. Discover an archaeological paradise full of Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Norman and Ottoman treasures!
