A Gastronomic Gulet Cruise in Croatia. September 2019

A gulet is the only way to visit the islands of the Dalmatian coast. What more can one say about gulet travel than our eleven guests, the guide/host/sommelier, and the crew of four...talk about personalized service. Unpack once and spend your nights anchored in secluded coves with swimming and kayaking before dinner...or before breakfast if that appeals. Meals aboard the Croatia gulet were a gastronomical feat and treat in themselves...accompanied ...

A gulet is the only way to visit the islands of the Dalmatian coast. What more can one say about gulet travel than our eleven guests, the guide/host/sommelier, and the crew of four...talk about personalized service. Unpack once and spend your nights anchored in secluded coves with swimming and kayaking before dinner...or before breakfast if that appeals. Meals aboard the Croatia gulet were a gastronomical feat and treat in themselves...accompanied by exceptional local wines selected and described by our incomparable guide and host, Filip Budic. Filip was our land host as well and led us to locations not on typical tours...eating oysters and mussels aboard a floating restaurant nestled among aquatic oyster farms; cheeses, wines and olive oils at local establishments he selected for their accessibility and quality in relaxing and comfortable settings; and, when not dining on the gulet, meals at local favorite establishments with the usual selection of Croatian appetizers and entrees but always a few "you have to try this" specialties. Five-star treatment on a fully equipped and staffed vessel capable of the smallest ports and remote coves! GO!

This was our fifth tour with Peter Sommer Travels. We continually return to their offerings because we know the tours are ALWAYS superbly led and organized, and an exceptional value for the money. We know that our guide(s) will be not only experts on local culture, food, and historical and archeological sites, but have led many tours successfully, and have the kind of personalities that ensure they sync very well with each and every guest. Peter Sommer has evolved to offer an extensive array of land and gulet tours across Europe/Asia, but with attention to his personal sweet spot of Turkey. Peter Sommer Travels is our "go to" travel company without question!! In fact, we are booked for Crete in April/May 2020!

Everything I expected, and more!

As a somewhat overly cautious single traveller, I had been keeping an eye on the reviews for Peter Somers travels for some time before committing to a tour with them. Everything I was reading/researching was gushing with compliments. It was only after finally committing to do a culinary gulet tour in Croatia that I got firsthand experience as to why that was so.

As a somewhat overly cautious single traveller, I had been keeping an eye on the reviews for Peter Somers travels for some time before committing to a tour with them. Everything I was reading/researching was gushing with compliments. It was only after finally committing to do a culinary gulet tour in Croatia that I got firsthand experience as to why that was so. I had the opportunity to sail the Croatian coast for 8 days on one of the most beautifully maintained sailboats, with an extremely attentive staff, a beautiful room, on-board meals to die for, and daily excursions with the most enthusiastic guide to explore the local foods and wines of the region. With a great group of fellow travellers, I couldn’t ask for more!

Rating for tour operator:

From the professional and very personal way I was treated in the booking process with the main office, to the fact that every single detail of our tour was so well thought out and balanced between amazingly unique experiences and relaxing time on the boat, it was all I could have hoped for in terms of value/high level of professionalism/service for the cost. Having been travelling the world for over 25 years and relying often on the services of small tour operators, never have I experienced one with the same extremely high level of service as Peter Somers in every facet of what they do. I only hope that I get the chance to do more tours with them in the future.
