Discover Turkey, Greece and Italy- explore some of the Ancient Wonders of the World, including Troy, Ephesus, Samos and Rhodes. We offer exceptional archaeological tours, escorted tours and luxurious gulet cruises

Sail aboard a beautiful traditional gulet on an archaeological cruise along Turkey's turquoise coast or among the Greek Isles, and enjoy total relaxation, beautiful food, and superb swimming - the perfect vacation. Or explore some of the finest historical sites in the world by land, retracing the route of Alexander the Great.

In 1994, Peter Sommer walked 2,000 miles across Turkey, following in the footsteps of Alexander the Great, and in the process fell in love with the country, its ancient civilizations, and the Turkish people. For the past 11 years, Peter, a British archaeologist and documentary maker, has been leading and organising exceptional escorted tours and holidays in Turkey and Greece.

'Peter is one of the world's best guides for trips in Turkey'
Tom Brosnahan, originator of the Lonely Planet and Frommer's travel guides to Turkey.

A UK-based specialist travel operator, we provide a select number of holidays and vacations - primarily gulet cruises - with a professional and above all personal touch. On our scheduled archaeological tours, we take only small groups (max 16 on land, 14 by sea) of like-minded people, travelling in an easy-going, friendly, and informal style.

We're delighted that people choose to travel with us to Turkey again and again.
"we so enjoyed the gulet cruise. We loved the Almira with its delightful and efficient crew, and those beautiful sites explained with such passion and sensitivity. Well done indeed."
Professor Richard Holmes, presenter of BBC TV series including War Walks, and author of 'Tommy', 'Redcoat', and 'Dusty Warriors'.

The gulet Almira is a gorgeous boat, with a crew both friendly and couldn't have been more comfortable. We felt we were on the best boat in Turkey no matter where we were.
