A wonderful trip, which for me was a combination of new and familiar places. The new ones were fascinating, surprisingly distinctive in character from each other; the extra enjoyment that expert guides like Heinrich and Nota provided in the familiar places is one of the reasons I keep travelling with Peter Sommer Travels. My highlight was Santorini – sailing into the caldera is always magical and doing that on a beautiful boat like the Aegean Clipper was really special.”
Jim Cleary, London, UK

“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. Heinrich handled all problems with ease and by the nature of his personality - calm and cool – ensured that we all had a fabulous time. What set this trip above all others was his ability to connect with all members of the group – that personal touch means a lot to us. I wish that all small group tours had tour leaders of Heinrich’s calibre.”

“We had a fabulous time. 12 of the 18 people on the trip had travelled with Peter Sommer Travels before and we all really got along well. This no doubt was the most well travelled group of people I have ever met and their stories kept us up late into the night. An amazing adventure - not to mention how gorgeous and awesome the Greek islands are just in and of themselves. The gulet Aegean Clipper was very comfortable for a sailboat. The captain and crew were very highly skilled and we especially appreciated that. It is the knowledge and enthusiasm of the guides that raises this trip so far above others.”

“an excellent trip and grateful thanks to Heinrich, Nota and Cem who all worked very hard to make it a wonderful experience for us all. We had excellent meals on board the gulet, and some wonderful meals onshore in little local tavernas which were lovely.”
David Mansfield, London, UK

“It was our first visit to that part of the world and Heinrich brought the history to life for us. Lovely boat, comfortable rooms. The choice of restaurants and the meals on land were excellent.”
Marjorie Lemin, NSW, Australia

“The crew were great...The two guides we had were absolutely excellent, charming, fun and very into their subject...I particularly liked the trip as I love boats and the Mediterranean.”
Niall Sheridan, London, UK

“I have travelled a lot (thinking of myself as a traveller not as a tourist, so expect my trips to be out of the ordinary.) The cruise to the Greek Islands has been up there with the best tours I have done. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for excellence.”
Roberta Wiseman, NSW, Australia

“The Peter Sommer Travels tour that we took to Cruise the Cyclades was a joy from start to finish. We assembled on the boat a mixture of people from USA, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and UK ,tried to remember names and meet the crew who would daringly look after us as well as Heinrich and Nota our guides. We talked over the meal which was excellent and off the next morning for an adventure which was such fun and educational. The pleasure we had getting to know everyone, lounging on the boat, watching the brave swimmers and on the land trips was immense. The food was better than excellent. Heinrich was so passionate about his subject you could not help but be enthralled by his talks. I can thoroughly recommend this voyage.”
Margaret Harris, Pulloxhill, UK

“The Cruising to the Cyclades tour was outstanding: a perfect balance of erudition and conviviality all in a spectacular setting of natural beauty. Our guides were highly attentive. Every detail was attended to, leaving us guests to simply relax and enjoy. It’s almost impossible to imagine a more enjoyable experience. I am already planning my next trip!”
