Peter Sommer is an expert in this field and in 1994, he 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, filmmaker, and highly experienced tour guide, Peter created Peter Sommer Travels in 1996, offering unique escorted tours and cruises in Turkey.” It is a UK-based specialist travel operator that provides a select number of holidays and vacations with a professional and above all personal touch. The great majority of the archaeology tours are personally led by Peter.
They offer small group tours: “We take only small groups (max 16 on land, 14 by sea) of like-minded people, travelling in an easy-going, friendly, and informal style. Our expertise stems from an especially intimate knowledge of Turkey – its geography, history, people, and much more”.
And also escorted tours: “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 Turkey tours bring to life the rich heritage of the country 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 a Turkish archaeological paradise full of Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman treasures!”
