The whole experience was brilliant. Very well put together in both the sites we saw and the sequence of visit, it was really made for us by the excellence of our guides. Their knowledge of Rome and the Romans is second to none and their delivery makes it living history. We feel certain that any trip that Michael and Paul were running would be excellent and would not hesitate to recommend them. Paul especially was so good in both his knowledge of the subject - the history of Rome and of the Romans - and in the way he put it across, he had our rapt attention all the time and really brought it all to life. The organisation was great, with good attention to where we ate as well as what we saw, which made it a full experience not to be forgotten. In our view too, good value for money. The structure of the tour and the quality of the guides was second to none. They really do know what they are talking about and how to bring it alive - and fun - for the visitor. Not just that, but they are great people to chat with too! Everything went very smoothly and there was very little if anything that we would wish to have done differently. Nothing was too much trouble. A good mix on being with the group and time on our own if we wanted it. We would certainly recommend Peter Sommer Travels - and already have to friends who have made a provisional booking!

Excellent. Our best tour operator yet. The itinerary was carefully thought through and well balanced. The trip represented great travel for the cost. Our booking was easy, the pre-information packet was timely and thorough. Interim questions were handled promptly and thoroughly, including going out of their way to help us with some hard to get reservations. The transfers were perfect and done with a high class Mercedes vehicle. Everything worked like clockwork. However, it was the genius of the itinerary, coupled with our two passionate professionals, Marcello and Lucia, that put this trip into the A plus category.
