Escorted Tours

We specialise in small group escorted tours (max 18 people) in the Mediterranean, primarily gulet cruises aboard traditional Turkish gulets. Below is our current schedule of archaeology tours, escorted holidays and gulet cruises. Many of our cultural adventures book up many months in advance, so we recommend booking your places early!

A long established tour operator (Peter led his first historical Turkey tour in 1996), we have assembled a team of leading experts and specialists to lead our cultural holidays and archaeological tours in the Mediterranean. We offer a wide range of escorted tours from spring to autumn: from adventure family holidays to gastronomic tours and walking vacations.

We are happy to design custom made tours for small groups. As well as our scheduled trips below, we also offer bespoke gulet cruises and charters. If one of our escorted tours is full or there is a particular itinerary you’d like us to create, or you have any questions about our escorted holidays, gulet trips or anything else, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
