Excellent. This was my first tour with Peter Sommer Travels and also the first time I have gone on a cruise. Cruising on a Turkish gulet really was very special, as was being able to swim off the side of the boat in the clear blue water of the Aegean Sea. The islands we visited all offered something different, whether it was an archaaelogical site, a crusader castle or a volcano. I especially enjoyed the mix of Turkish food on board and Greek specialities on the islands we visited. The guides were both exceptionally knowlegeable and went out of their way to ensure that everyone had the best possible experience. I would highly recommend PST, and this tour, to anyone wanting a special holiday experience.
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!
