Trip of a Lifetime

We had such a wonderful trip on Peter Sommer Travels Walking and Cruising Southern Dalmatia. Filip Budic, our very knowledgeable guide was so wonderful, friendly, and fun. The itinerary was so well thought out and just the right amount of people. The Turkish Gullet was a beautiful boat and the Captain and crew were so attentive and kind. The rooms were good size as well as the bathrooms. Croatia is such a beautiful place and the islands ...

We had such a wonderful trip on Peter Sommer Travels Walking and Cruising Southern Dalmatia. Filip Budic, our very knowledgeable guide was so wonderful, friendly, and fun. The itinerary was so well thought out and just the right amount of people. The Turkish Gullet was a beautiful boat and the Captain and crew were so attentive and kind. The rooms were good size as well as the bathrooms. Croatia is such a beautiful place and the islands were magnificent. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who likes to be active while vacationing. It is important to note that the definition of "walking" is different in Europe than it is in the U. S. It was definitely hiking for us.

I found this company online and the reviews were wonderful. Peter Sommer was always available to answer any questions we had before the trip began. He called during the trip to make sure all was well. I would definitely use this company again

Absolutely fantastic trip!

We had a wonderful adventure exploring the islands and coast of Croatia from the comfort of a beautiful gulet ship. Our room was comfortable, the food was superb, and the crew of our ship (My Croatia) were professional and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgable, accommodating, enjoyable guide than Helena Thomas. Her enthusiasm for Croatia and history made this trip exceptional. We were also fortunate to find ourselves ...

We had a wonderful adventure exploring the islands and coast of Croatia from the comfort of a beautiful gulet ship. Our room was comfortable, the food was superb, and the crew of our ship (My Croatia) were professional and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgable, accommodating, enjoyable guide than Helena Thomas. Her enthusiasm for Croatia and history made this trip exceptional. We were also fortunate to find ourselves with a delightful group of co-travelers to share this experience.

Rating for tour operator:

Peter Sommer tours are very carefully planned and all details are taken care of. From the travelers perspective, there are no worries or concerns. The hikes led by an entertaining and knowledgable archeologist, the lunches at small family wineries, picnics, and local guides with intimate knowledge of the area all combined to make the experience a relaxing, unique, memorable way to explore Croatia.

Our Outstanding Fall Cruising & Hiking Expedition in the Adriatic

My wife and I recently enjoyed a week-long excursion along the Croatian coast, booking "Walking and Cruising the Coast of Dalmatia" through Peter Sommer Travels. Our trip included cruising along the Croatian coast and islands in the gulet "Croatia" with Captain Vladimir and his highly professional and attentive crew of Josef, Marino and Ure, and hiking in the Croatian islands and mainland with our guide, Dr. Helena Tomas, a professor of Archaeology ...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a week-long excursion along the Croatian coast, booking "Walking and Cruising the Coast of Dalmatia" through Peter Sommer Travels. Our trip included cruising along the Croatian coast and islands in the gulet "Croatia" with Captain Vladimir and his highly professional and attentive crew of Josef, Marino and Ure, and hiking in the Croatian islands and mainland with our guide, Dr. Helena Tomas, a professor of Archaeology at the University of Zagreb. Captain Vlad and his crew performed flawlessly and proved to be extremely accomplished at operating the Croatia and its Zodiac boat, in attending to the cabins, and in preparing and serving excellent meals and snacks. The crew was attentive to all details, from modifying the menu to accommodate their guests to finding the perfect bays to drop anchor for a quick swim in the Adriatic. Certainly much of the credit for our outstanding experience goes to our guide, Helena, whose knowledge of the incredible and extensive history of this region is only matched by her passion for this work. Helena also teamed us with other local guides who were able to provide their unique perspectives on the culture and history of the region, and we visited villages and enjoyed meals and wine with local families that really enriched our understanding of the local culture. The entire experience was absolutely delightful, and we would certainly book another trip with Peter Sommers. I have already recommended this particular trip to colleagues at work, knowing they will not be disappointed with this adventure!

Rating for tour operator:

Peter Sommers knows how to do things the right way...he teams an outstanding, knowledgeable guide with expert seamen and provides personal specific attention to each trip to make sure everything goes flawlessly. All connections and contacts occurred right on time and were highly professional, and there were no surprises or mistakes along the way. Excellent job.

Cruising and walking in Southern Dalmatia

It delivered all that the operator had promised: a beautiful boat taking us quietly across turquoise sea with beautiful island views (and a water spout and some dolphins), rural walks through rugged landscapes, detailed exploration of historic and pre-historic sites with an expert guide, good food, comfort, swimming. And we had quite a few laughs.

Experiential luxury travel at its finest

We went on Peter Sommer's Walking and Cruising Holiday in Southern Dalmatia. The gulet that we stayed on for seven nights was well-appointed and comfortable, with extra touches such as hair dryers in the private bathrooms and an espresso machine available for use 24/7. Our guide, Dr. Helena Tomas, was very warm and knowledgable. She led us on hikes where we enjoyed both beautiful scenery and interesting cultural and archaelogical sites...

Peter Sommer stayed in touch with the our guide, Helena, throughout the tour, to make sure that all was going well. The owner of the gulet also visited to make sure that all was up to snuff. Overall, this was a very well organized and managed tour.

Walking and Cruising Southern Dalmatia- an intimate view of Croatia

This was our fourth trip with Peter Sommer Travels and it lived up to our very high expectations.

The ship is beautiful, comfortable, and excellently crewed. The guide was wonderfully informed and participated enthusiastically in all the activities.

Rating for tour operator:

This is a small tour operator that provides an intimate cultural and historical perspective on the places visited. The guides are all highly qualified archeologists who are able to recreate vividly the past from the ruins before you. We have learned so much on each trip. It's like attending a week of lectures at the Smithsonian (Washington, D.C.) or a university but in the fresh air with the places before you.

Walking and Crusing Southern Dalmatia

This was our second trip booked with Peter Sommer Travels, and , once again, a trip of a life time! Our guide Dr. Helena Tomas, is brilliant! We lived the history of each place we visited, through her vast knowledge , her passion and her deep love of her country. The Islands of the southern Dalmatia felt like a place lost in time. The beautiful limestone structures, the history that has endured centuries, and the quiet pace of the daily life...
