“Exploring Wales – Millennia Under the Gaze of Mountains” 2019 was a terrific experience. Our hotel in Abergavenny was very good and for the last couple of days we were based at a top grade country house hotel with excellent service and dining. The historian was the very knowledgeable Paul Beston who has an encyclopaedic knowledge of Roman and mediaeval British history, and his account was always comprehensive, accessible and interesting and he was very well prepared. There was lots to see, and some spectacular views. It was a comprehensive and highly enjoyable expert introduction to British History of the Roman and mediaeval period. The organisation was superb with excellent transport by chauffeur. Comfortable hotels and very good dining. Highly recommended!
The Exploring Wessex tour was our first experience with Peter Sommer Travels, plus it was their initial tour to this area. Amazingly, we perceived no “first time” issues, indicating the care with which the company researched the historic sites, the hotels, the transportation and the restaurants. We are pleased to give the company an unqualified "excellent" rating in all aspects, from initial contact, to booking, and finally, to the superb planning and site selection by the tour organizers. We also want to emphasise the deep knowledge, patience and humor of the guides.
