About the UK
Our new tours in the UK are the result of several years of intense work by our dedicated in-house team of archaeologists and historians. Although Peter Sommer Travels is justly famed for our tours in the Mediterranean, each of the core members of our company studied and trained in the history and archaeology of the ancient world in the British Isles, and many of our first encounters with the ancient world were made here. From our base in Monmouthshire we have travelled the length and breadth of these island nations, and are hugely excited at the prospect of introducing you to the wonderful archaeological and historical sites across these lands, the superb hotels, and the delicious food and drink on offer from award-winning local producers.
Bringing together all of the elements that have made our Exploring tours so popular, these tours will be the perfect introduction to these lands, whether you have been a regular visitor, or will be travelling here for the first time.
This was our second tour with Peter Sommer Travels. We were most pleased with all aspects of the tour which was well organized around a historical itinerary. The daily agenda, hotel arrangements, dining experiences and professional tour guides all exceeded our expectations. The care, comfort and safety of the client are the first priorities for Peter Sommer Travels. We can most heartily recommend Peter Sommer Travels and specifically their Exploring Hadrian's Wall without reservation.
The only thing that exceeded the depth of knowledge imparted to me on this tour was the depth of ignorance that I possessed prior to it. I cannot compliment Peter Sommer Travels enough on a well-planned itinerary and on the expertise of the two tour leaders, Paul Beston and Michael Metcalfe. The accommodations, the dining and the drinking experiences were superb and the choice of the historical and cultural venues was excellent. Both Paul and Michael excelled at elucidating the history of the Wessex region and made the learning experience both enriching and entertaining. Enjoyed every minute.
