Peter Sommer Travels

In 1994, Peter Sommer walked 2,000 miles across Turkey, retracing the route of Alexander the Great, and in the process fell in love with the country, its ancient civilizations, and the Turkish people. A British archaeologist, filmmaker, and tour guide, Peter created Peter Sommer Travels in 1996, offering unique escorted tours and gulet cruising holidays.

An award-winning UK-based tour operator they specialize in cultural tours, gulet cruises and private charters in Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Turkey and the UK. Their expertise stems from an intimate knowledge of these areas - their geography, history, people, and much more. In 2016 they were named Tour Operator of the Year by AITO (the UK’s Association of Independent Tour Operators) because of their exceptional customer feedback.

They offer a wide range of scheduled archaeological tours, family tours, food tours and walking tours in Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Turkey and the UK. They also offer tailor-made tours by land as well as private gulet charters. A small family run firm, they take pride in our personal approach, treating our customers as guests with extra special care - before, during, and after a tour.


Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve

Since 1979 Sabi Sabi has hosted visitors from all over the world, drawn to this unique area by the promise of the safari experience of a lifetime. Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, situated in the world-renowned 65000 hectare Sabi Sand Wildtuin in the South-Western section of the Kruger National Park, is a wildlife oasis, where guests can observe at close quarters the age-old natural relationship between predator and prey. Big game abounds and roams freely throughout this pristine part of the ancient African continent.  The diverse habitat is home to spectacular wildlife including the Big 5 – lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant – as well as cheetah, wild dog and some 200 other animal species indigenous to the area. Day and night safaris in open safari vehicles, led by highly trained Game Rangers and qualified Trackers, follow the animals on and off-road, deep into the heart of the wild African Bushveld. Walking safaris allow guests to feel the pulse of untamed Africa through the soles of their feet.
