Private Gulet trip in Dalmatia

Fabulous service by the crew on the Malena ! Accommodating to all our special requests, fun and friendly. All the historical destinations were well selected and featured inspired local tour guides. Our cruise guide, Mislav, was with us throughout the trip and offered expert historical context to our destinations, which complimented the local guides.

Fabulous service by the crew on the Malena ! Accommodating to all our special requests, fun and friendly. All the historical destinations were well selected and featured inspired local tour guides. Our cruise guide, Mislav, was with us throughout the trip and offered expert historical context to our destinations, which complimented the local guides. To have this Archeology PHD candidate as our resource was fascinating, but the best part was he easily became part of our “family” during our time together. Peter Sommers and Mislav were able to pivot our itinerary seamlessly as weather impacted our journey. Many Thanks !

A private Gulet Charter in Croatia

A Gulet trip from Dubrovnik to Split, stopping at numerous historic sites, with a fabulous guide, Mislav, on board and with a wonderful crew. Many great meals both on and off the boat. A comprehensive look at both the history and culture of this beautiful and interesting region. I highly recommend both this trip and Peter Sommer travels.

Peter Sommer travels. I was not the primary organizer of the trip, so I did not deal with Peter directly, but every detail of the trip was planned to perfection, and our guide and crew were excellent at tweaking the schedule to accommodate weather issues that arose, so everything was seamless. Our entire group of 8 were well taken care of, well fed, and well educated!

Family sailing trip for our family

In 2021 my husband and I sailed the Turkish Carian coast organised by Peter Sommer Travel. Because of this excellent experience, we decided that a similar gulet cruise would be just right for a summer holiday for all our family in 2022. We approached Peter Sommer who personally helped us with planning this family event.

In 2021 my husband and I sailed the Turkish Carian coast organised by Peter Sommer Travel. Because of this excellent experience, we decided that a similar gulet cruise would be just right for a summer holiday for all our family in 2022. We approached Peter Sommer who personally helped us with planning this family event. We arranged a private charter trip and Peter helped select a gulet appropriate for our family (14 members in 3 generations) and plan a sailing holiday similar to the trip we had previously experienced. A perfect tour was organised for 8 adults and 6 children, including archaeological outings accompanied by expert Heinrich, a visit to a winery and daily extensive opportunities to swim and enjoy a wide variety of water sports for which the gulet was ideally equipped. The captain and his crew of six were friendly, highly efficient, helpful, and ever vigilant over the children. The chef was excellent, producing restaurant worthy meals, fabulous cakes and snacks in his small, well-equipped kitchen. The manager on board, Cem, was just perfect and solved any problems efficiently and kindly. We highly recommend a Peter Sommer family summer gulet cruise and we look forward to next time.

Peter Sommer Travel organised our private gulet charter professionally and took our specific needs and wishes fully into account. The collabortors of Peter Sommer Travel, Cem and Heinrich, ensured on board and during all activities that our family had highly enjoyable, informative and relaxing holiday.

A Private Gulet Charter on the Carian Coast

Amazing holiday with the family to celebrate our parents golden anniversary. The crew was very attentive and made the whole holiday very enjoyable and relaxing, the Chef, Amed, needs a special mention as all the food was amazing. Cem who was the holiday manager, was a god send as he made sure that the only thing we had to worry about is how to maximize our fun time together.

Amazing holiday with the family to celebrate our parents golden anniversary. The crew was very attentive and made the whole holiday very enjoyable and relaxing, the Chef, Amed, needs a special mention as all the food was amazing. Cem who was the holiday manager, was a god send as he made sure that the only thing we had to worry about is how to maximize our fun time together. Heinrich our on board archeologist gave us great insights into the history of all the archeological sites we visited, as well as, getting us all back up to speed on local and even global history. This was definitely a holiday to remember and we are already looking when to book the next.

Peter Sommer Travels, was great. Made sure that all our requirements where met and then some. Information flow was good and made sure we were prepared for our trip. All emails with queries were answered very quickly and generally there was very little to have to worry about.

The effort to make us as comfortable on the gulet as possible, the interesting archeological excursions, the outstanding food and the carefully selected gulet/crew made this trip so memorable for everyone on board. It was a holiday of high quality which offered historical, culinary and a fun/relaxing experience. Everyone from our three generations on board thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the trip. A special shout out to Cem our tour manager and Heinrich, our archeological guide. Their years of experience ensured this trip was a huge success.

Peter Sommer Travels made organising this cruise for our whole family as easy as possible. They ensured a suitable gulet and crew were used for this trip and took care of our whole family throughout the entire trip, without any delay. Peter Sommer Travels is a very conscientious tour operator who will not disappoint.

Exhilarating Tour!

It was everything I desired: intense history and hiking in a very spartan part of the world.

Cruising the Dodecanese with Peter Sommer Travels, May 29, 2022

This was my second experience of a Peter Sommer small ship sailing trip with a focus on the history of ancient Greece and Turkey., and its quality was, again, excellent. So much of the pleasure in this experience is created by the expertise, organizational abilities, and story-telling talents of the onboard guides--in this case, Drs, Michael Metcalfe and Nota Karmaouna.

This was my second experience of a Peter Sommer small ship sailing trip with a focus on the history of ancient Greece and Turkey., and its quality was, again, excellent. So much of the pleasure in this experience is created by the expertise, organizational abilities, and story-telling talents of the onboard guides--in this case, Drs, Michael Metcalfe and Nota Karmaouna. Over the course of the trip, they help you to build a sense of what made this area of the world important--intellectually, artistically, and historically and challenge you to debate and interpret what they show you. The small number of guests, and authentically-local shared meals together--both onboard and in lovely small family restaurants onshore--are a source of good conversations--and, indeed, future friendships. I am still engaged with interesting people that I met on the first trip and now this one. What more could you ask? I recommend these unique experiences whole-heartedly. . .
