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 caringly 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.
Life aboard the gulet was an extraordinary combination of learning about the history and culture of the islands, exploring ashore, relaxing aboard, and enjoying the many water sports offered by the boat and crew. Our guides were expert, engaging and fun to spend time with. The crew was superb and the chef created amazing meals. For those interested in learning the history of the region, while traveling in first class accommodations aboard a classic Turkish gulet, Peter Sommer Travels is a highly recommended choice.
