Last Updated on July 7, 2022

Peter Sommer is an English archaeologist, writer, photographer, lecturer and award-winning documentary filmmaker who trekked in Turkey, fell in love with it, and now takes discerning travelers from around the world on his personal treks and gulet cruises each year.

Want a truly personal travel experience with a knowledgeable, witty, friendly guide, and small groups(maximum 14 on gulet cruises, 16 on the land-only trip)? Consider joining one of Peter’s travel groups.

Several of his trips include gulet cruisingClick here for the list of tours and cruises.

Peter writes:

“When I first went to Turkey back in 1994, it was to walk 2,000 miles across the country retracing the route of Alexander the Great. In those five months of trekking I fell in love with the land, its ancient ruins, and the warm, hospitable Turkish people.”

Peter’s trekking experience later served him well as he worked on the acclaimed documentary In the Footsteps of Alexander the Great. His current tour of that name was chosen by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of the world’s top ten learning holidays.

That’s only one of his many documentary efforts which include Tales from the Green Valley; Millennium: a thousand years of history; and Commanding Heights: the Battle for the World Economy.

Peter is a fascinating, multi-talented guy, and one of the world’s best companions for trips in Turkey. More…

Peter has scheduled escorted archaeological tours and guletcruises to Turkey from April through October. (Peter’s guletyacht cruises neatly solve the yacht cabin charter problems.)
