I loved this tour of Athens - though I have visited the city before I have never done so in the company of such knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides as Nota and Heinrich , who brought alive for me the huge and varied history of the capital and its surrounding area. This was my first Peter Sommer Travels’ tour and I have already started planning my next - the standards in all areas are very high and the quality of the tour overall would be very hard to beat.”
Gail Pitty, County Durham, UK

“The dynamic duo of Nota and Heinrich have done it again. They really are the best. I consider myself fortunate to have enjoyed the experience of their excellent guiding and lecturing skills.”
Jay Olson, Hong-Kong, China

“The extra enjoyment that expert guides like Heinrich & Nota provide is one of the reasons I keep travelling with Peter Sommer Travels.”
Jim Cleary, London, UK

Greece Tours and Gulet Holidays

Greece is a land irrevocably connected in our imagination with the glories of the ancient world: the magnificent temples of Delphi and Olympia; the military might of Athens and Sparta; the land that gave birth to democracy, philosophy, theatre, beautiful art and history. It lives up to this billing, but goes far beyond: Greece is a land of deep blue seas; long, sandy beaches; and strings of beautiful islands. It has a fabulous cuisine, with the emphasis firmly placed on fresh produce simply cooked, best sampled in a family run taverna. From crystal waters to delicious food, golden sunshine to abundant antiquities, Greece has all the ingredients for a wonderful cultural holiday. Discover this amazing country on one of our expert-led Greece tours.

Explore Athens
Athens, the capital of Greece, is a magnificent place to begin exploring the country and sample the juxtaposition of old and new. Its modern cityscape, filled with lively tavernas, is lorded over by the brooding mass of the Acropolis, crowned by the Parthenon. Other equally splendid ruins rear up throughout the fabric of the city centre and are well worth investigating. Discover this crucible of history on our expert-led Athens tour.

“Heinrich our tour guide was supremely competent in every way, interesting and interested, charming and a true gentleman. A pleasure to observe…”
Patricia Kartiganer, Boston, USA

Cruise the Greek Islands
The strategic location of the Dodecanese and Cyclades, between the Greek and Turkish mainlands, has endowed them with a series of first-rate archaeological sites and museums. Many of the islands are crowned by magnificent Crusader castles or fortifications dating back to ancient Greek or Byzantine times. Hidden in their interior, away from the gaze of pirates, lies a wealth of holy sites: ancient shrines, medieval monasteries and even Ottoman mosques. These historical riches are embellished by the natural wonders that abound in these islands: barely-active volcanoes, natural saunas, rugged mountains, beautiful coves and, in the spring, abundant wild-flowers.

The most successful, enjoyable and very best small group tour that I have taken primarily due to the fact that you had Heinrich as tour leader AND a local Greek tour guide Nota. They both worked seamlessly to ensure the success of this tour.

“What can I say? An amazing trip… The best that either of us have done with any company. Apart from the fact that Crete is amazing, Heinrich and the local guide did a superb job… Informative, organised, and we weren’t warned about their sense of humour! Both of them… Hysterical.”
Ian Parmenter, WA, Australia
