A Sense of Place – A Cultural Experience

Our exploring tours are based on extensive research, painstaking preparation and – most importantly – on the profound and detailed knowledge of our tour experts and local guides. On a Peter Sommer Travels’ land based trip you’ll be personally escorted by a specialist guide, typically an archaeologist intimately familiar with the place. Through expert eyes you’ll discover an area’s fascinating archaeology and history, its special nature and its vibrant traditions and culture.

To achieve this, we present the key highlights and also give you access to those hidden-away treasures that only the true connoisseur knows. This applies to the ancient or more recent sights as well as to the handpicked restaurants representing the area’s culinary achievements. Moreover, it determines the accommodation we use, where you rest and relax. We favour the best: highly memorable experiences, such as grand city hotels in great locations or lovingly renovated traditional village houses, full of unique character.

On our land-based tours, you get to experience the very spirit of a place or region, to share in its cultural wealth, to explore the rich tapestry of its history and tradition, always accompanied by real experts.
