The trip was absolutely wonderful. Your historical commentary and the selection of locations, from the Hellespont to Issus made the adventure extraordinarily memorable. The pace could not have been better, and each day brought a new experience that was inevitably better than the one before. We were amazed that we were almost always the only group visiting every site. Furthermore, the availability of yourself as guide, alongside your Turkish coordinator and 2 drivers, for every day over 3 weeks made this trip absolutely the best value of any we have taken.

Frequent 'on water' holidaymakers, our recent gastronomic tour in Turkey was the best ever. Our guide/leader Serdar was terrific on all fronts: archaeology, gastronomy, organisation, and friendliness. The crew were great from cook to captain to deckies. Food was superb both onboard and onshore, as were our experiences with various chefs and cooks. We're planning to do it all again with Peter Sommer Travels!
