Cultural and archaeological tour specialist Peter Sommer Travels has added Wales to its newly-released 2019 brochure, which presents a renewed focus on fascinating small-group itineraries of the United Kingdom.

Departing July 14, 2019, Exploring Wales: Millennia Under the Gaze of Mountains is Peter Sommer Travels’ first-ever Welsh tour. Telling the unique stories of south and west Wales over six thrilling days and nights, the tour explores some of the country’s finest historic sites and most soul-stirring landscapes.

Led by expert guide Paul Beston, guests discover remaining settlements of the Romans, Vikings, Normans – and the English. The tour visits Roman forts, medieval chapels and an array of fascinating castles, with highlights including Chepstow Castle, Tintern Abbey, Caerphilly Castle and the remains of Bishop de Gower’s remarkable palace.

At the end of each day, guests feast on delicious traditional Welsh dishes and enjoy the easy comforts of two smaller hotels – the Angel Hotel in the market town of Abergavenny and The Grove in the countryside near Narberth – that are both historic and full of character.

Exploring Wales: Millennia Under the Gaze of Mountains costs from £2,695 (approx. AU$4940) per person twin share, and includes accommodation, vehicle transfers, entrance fees and tips, excursions with expert guides, breakfast daily, five lunches and three dinners.

Peter Sommer Travels’ new Wales tour joins a UK program which also includes Exploring Hadrian’s Wall: Romans, Reivers and Romantics, an eight-day tour led by Paul Beston and Peter Sommer departing on June 22, 2019, with fares from £2,825 (AU$5180) per person; and Exploring Wessex: From Neolithic Avebury to Georgian Bath, a seven-day tour led by Paul Beston and Dr Michael Metcalfe, that departs on June 30, 2019, with fares from £2,795 (AU$5125) per person.

Specialising in small-group expeditions, Peter Sommer Travels offers 29 different expert-led gulet cruises and land tours in Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Each itinerary provides a fascinating insight into ancient lands while guests enjoy the history, culture, magnificent scenery, food and wine of each destination. Peter Sommer Travels received the Tour Operator of the Year Gold award in 2017 and 2015 from AITO, the Association of Independent Tour Operators, as well as the Silver award in 2016.
