This trip was fabulous and it was made even better with the knowledge and expertise of our Spanish-speaking guide, Jorge Riofru. Jorge smoothed over all our difficulties and showed us the real Peru that is his homeland. He was able to ensure that my coeliac diet was catered for even when we were trekking to Machu Picchu! this trip was enhanced by the deep knowledge and love that Jorge has for his country. this has been one of the best trips ever.

We are independent travelers so do a lot of our own thing but have thrown in a mix of Peregrine trips over the past 7 years - China, Africa, Italy, Peru, Croatia and Turkey. This a company that's got it right - the small group - we have had 3 to 12 in our bus trips, the right amount of group touring and free time is something we really like but the best part of Peregrine are their guides - from Langer to Elvis to Peter to Stella - absolutely first class both with their knowledge but also expertise when something is thrown at them from left field in unexpected situation as happened on a couple of our trips. The group's safety, comfort and interests are utmost in their minds. Dinners at local restaurants (always an option - you can dine alone if you wish) was always good fun once the group had bonded after a couple of days. I'm sure Peter remembers only too well the restaurant in Sienna - he apologized to the other patrons on our behalf - have never laughed or had so much fun since. I cannot speak highly enough of Peregrine - we absolutely love their trips and looking forward to seeing Cuba with them in 2017.

Absolutely the most interesting and well organized tour of the Nile and its highlights. The tour guide Ahmed Helmy was so knowledgeable, caring, compassionate and passionate that it made the tour more relaxing and fun. Never for one minute did I feel vulnerable or worried about being in Egypt. The media make all this hype and put out warnings but seriously I have just had the safest and best holiday!!!! Thoroughly recommend to all tourists to come here. If it's on your bucket list do it now you won't regret it!!

Did the "Ancient Persia in Depth" tour in Sept 15. Peregrine did a great job in arranging the travel, itinerary, visa application, answering queries, etc. Could not fault the pre-tour organisation. Once on tour, we had the great fortune to be led by Mohsen Hajisaeid, a highly knowledgeable and professional tour guide with a passion for Iran, its history, culture and the tour guide industry generally. We were cared for down to the smallest detail.

Tour Peregrine Adventures Company Reviews

Stride Review

With Peregrine Adventures, ‘anywhere is possible.’ Based in Australia, Peregrine has led small-group, ‘soft’ adventure-style trips worldwide for over 30 years. It was one of the first operators to employ local leaders, a practice that is now widespread in guided travel.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

While considering itself an adventure travel company, Peregrine promises to “smooth down the bumps and rough edges.” In short, it’s more about soft adventure with added comforts than roughing it. Group sizes are kept small, with no more than 16 travelers per trip. Its philosophy is that while “seeing the famous sites is a must, it’s those memories of wandering through a little village or sharing dinner with a local family that leave a lasting impression.” The small-group aspect allows for more time to absorb the nature of the places visited, and to make a minimal environmental impact on them as well.

Who Travels With Them?

While Peregrine is a global company, many of its travelers originate from Australia and New Zealand. However, their groups can be geographically diverse, with most travelers 50+ years of age.

Where Do They Operate? Peregrine offers a wide variety of exciting global destinations, with 200 trips across 80 countries -- spanning from Egypt to Turkey to Canada trips! The company is perhaps best known for its Himalayan trekking excursions to far-flung destinations including Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. It was a pioneer in high-altitude trekking and these trips remain among their most popular today.

How Does it Work?

Most travel is by private, air-conditioned minibus, but you might find yourself on a houseboat in Kerala, India, a tuk-tuk in Sri Lanka, or a mountain lift on the best Switzerland tour you've ever experienced. Lodging and dining is at smaller, locally run hotels and restaurants. You might also dine with locals from time to time, and stay with local families or at campsites as well.

Why Travel With Them?

Peregrine is a good choice if you’re looking for a bit of a softer landing with respect to transportation and accommodations but still crave an authentic, off-the-beaten-path experience. If you’re looking for more individual travel, Peregrine will craft independent journeys, arrange self-guided walking and cycling tours, or arrange private group and tailor-made trips. It’s your choice. Peregrine also helps support various community and conservation projects via its ties with the Intrepid Foundation.

From Peregrine Adventures

It’s been more than 36 years since our first small group set out to discover Nepal. It’s this heritage and our reputation that keeps travellers coming back time and time again.

We appeal to the well-travelled, discerning traveller. The one who chooses value over price, and wants to immerse themselves in a place instead of just ticking landmarks off a bucket list. The type of person who would rather stay in a family run B&B built in a 16th century Venetian convent than a forgettable hotel. We’re for travellers who want inclusions along the way instead of fiddling around for loose change.

Almost 20 years ago, Peregrine led an industry revolution by solely employing locally born leaders. This innovative approach gives our travellers a deeper insight into the countries they visit. Doorways are opened and a true understanding of the place is fostered.

At Peregrine, we travel in intimate groups and take the time to get under the skin of a destination. Of course we all want to see the Taj Mahal in India. But imagine then heading to a remote Rajasthani village and learning about rural life while in the company of locals. Seeing the famous sites is a must, but it’s often the memory of wandering through a small village or sharing dinner with a local family that will leave a lasting impact.

We promise to share our knowledge and expertise with you, and ensure you will come home with stories you will tell for years to come.
