I had wanted to go to Crete for a very long time. The ancient Minoan culture and the natural beauty of the island were of overriding interest to me. Now that I have been guided through the major ruins (and some delightful minor ones) and have been introduced to the natural beauty of the West, I feel that I can return to take up my own explorations with confidence and enthusiasm. Heinrich Hall is a guide in the very finest sense of the word. This tour was everything, and more. Thank you Peter Sommer Travels!

For the third time in a row, a Peter Sommer Travels tour provided my wife and me with a vigorous, fascinating, and thoroughly enjoyable tour and exposure to thousands of years of history, as well as, great food, scenery, and glorious vistas! For the third time in a row, the conclusion of the tour, convinced me I have to book another!

Yet another fascinating and superbly well-structured tour with entertaining, well-informed guides who gave an incredible insight into the richness of Crete’s history and culture. Amazing hotel locations and fabulous food - this land tour is unique.
Richard & Jean Harper, Berkshire, UK

The chance to explore a country in the company of knowledgeable and expert guides is what we see as most important in undertaking these trips - all the benefits we enjoy as independent travellers but with expertise as a bonus...We had been to Crete on a previous trip, but had no idea what we had missed until this tour. What an amazing place - the people we met, the places we visited, all gave us an experience of this wonderful part of Greece that we would otherwise not have been able to find for ourselves.

Greece Tours and Gulet Holidays

For a full list of our tours in Greece with dates and prices, please scroll down.

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.

“The sites were lovely, the museums fantastic, the food was outstanding and Michael and Heinrich were excellent guides”
Jim Cleary, London, UK

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
