Expert-led Archaeological & Cultural Tours

A multi-award-winning family-run specialist in expert-led cultural tours and gulet cruises, including private tours and gulet charters. We offer archaeological tours, walking holidays, gastronomic tours and family tours for small groups (a maximum of 10-18 guests) in Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Turkey and the UK. 

In 1994, archaeologist/documentary filmmaker, Peter Sommer, walked 2000 miles from Troy retracing the route of Alexander the Great. He fell in love with travelling and in 1995 began organising and leading a range of archaeological and cultural tours.

Accredited by ABTA and AITO our trips include gulet cruises, such as Cruising to the Cyclades, Cruising the Aeolian Islands and Cruising the Coast of Dalmatia combining relaxation, fabulous food and swimming with cultural adventures.
