Peter Sommer Travels is a small tour operator that provides an intimate cultural and historical perspective on the places visited. The guides are all highly qualified archaeologists who are able to recreate vividly the past from the ruins before you. We have learned so much on each trip. It's like attending a week of lectures at the Smithsonian (Washington, D.C.) or a university but in the fresh air with the places before you.

Exploring Wessex was one of the best holiday tours I've ever been on. From picking me up at the train station to begin the tour, even though my original train was cancelled, to getting me to the airport at the end, Exploring Wessex was extremely well organized. Hotel accommodations were arranged and ready for us, with no hassle whatsoever. The daily site tours were definitely the highlights of the tour. Each day was something new and wonderful. The absolute highlight was being able to explore Stonehenge in the evening. The small tour group allowed us access to places larger group wouldn't be able to go. Meal arrangements were well planned and delicious. I didn't have a bad meal anywhere. Our tour leaders, Paul and Michael, were excellent guides. Their Wessex knowledge was impressive. Michael kept us on schedule, so that we didn't miss out on anything. I highly recommend Exploring Wessex to anyone who is interested in English history or if you are just looking for a wonderful holiday tour. Peter Sommer Travels is the way to go.
