Why Peregrine

Local Leaders, Always

Peregrine pride themselves on only employing locally-born leaders for their trips, allowing them to give back to local economies and create jobs. Plus, who better to show you around than someone born and raised in the area, someone with strong connections within the community, an understanding of the culture and a passion for their region? Local guides will also help you find the best places to eat, point you in the direction of hidden highlights and provide you with practical information on etiquette, tipping and speaking the language.

Responsible Travel

Responsible travel is at the core of what Peregrine does. Their integrity and principles of sustainable development means that this business culture stretches from the office to the guides on the ground. They ensure that both staff and travelers understand and adhere to responsible travel practices while abroad. These practices include respecting people, cultures and local environments, and encouraging the spread of good will throughout the trips they take. They are committed to making a positive contribution wherever they can.

Quality Accommodation

Peregrine trips include handpicked accommodation, chosen for its quality, character, amenities and central location. Each tour includes at least one stand out property places that offer a deeper level of cultural immersion or a unique perspective of a destination. It could be a heritage stay in a Rajasthan Palace, a wilderness lodge in the Sri Lankan jungle, a splash of luxury in a Moroccan Riad, or a night in stilt cottages over Myanmar's Inle Lake.

Small Group Sizes

Peregrine Group sizes are a maximum of 12 people, meaning less time checking into hotels and getting on and off transport, and more time seeing the sights. Even their Adventure Cruising and Polar tours use small ships, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in a destination and get into areas often restricted to larger groups . You'll get more personalized attention from your local guide and be able to develop meaningful connections with the others in your group. Peregrine tours are also a popular choice for those travelling solo as they're a great way to meet others with similar interests.

Peregrine Benefits

By Travelers, For Travelers

Peregrine is a company of travelers, for travelers. They are constantly out taking trips, sharing stories of travel, trying to get a greater understanding of the world and infusing that sense of adventure into all of their itineraries.

Unique Itineraries

Peregrine itineraries cover both the big drawcards to a region, as well as smaller, more local experiences. And they travel at a slower pace with more days in each destination, giving you the chance to soak up the atmosphere, relax and unwind at your own speed. It's not about ticking off 12 countries in two weeks; it's about finding the pulse of a destination and learning its story.

More Inclusions

With Peregrine, all of your major expenses are covered, such as arrival airport transfer, all transport on your tour, accommodation, tips, any specialist guides and porters, sightseeing and entrance fees. All included meals are also outlined on the itinerary. This will save you from having to reach into your wallet for local currency every couple of hours; you’ll only need to budget a little extra for any additional meals, souvenirs and optional activities.

What makes us unique

Peregrine Story & History

Peregrine started back in 1977 with a small group who ventured out to explore Nepal. Since that first tour, Peregrine has appealed to well traveled, discerning travelers - those who really want to experience a place rather than just tick off the bucket list.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • What will the weather be like on the tour?

    The weather can vary from destination to destination and can fluctuate throughout the year. More information is available in the specific trip notes, so please get in touch to request a copy.

  • Are there any long travelling days during the tour?

    Peregrine tour itineraries indicate travelling time and mode of transport. Although there are some days where the travel is relatively long distances, their trips are organised to make travelling as convenient and efficient as possible.

  • What form of transportation is used on the tour?

    Peregrine use private vehicles, and sometimes local transport where it adds to the experience (ie. the Shinkansen 'Bullet Train'). In certain areas, whether it’s the old quarter of a city or a remote rural valley, the best way to explore is on foot, so they try to incorporate some walking. Peregrine also use boats, ships, camels, bicycles which can all add to the authentic nature of our trips.

  • Is it possible to book extra pre/post tour accommodation?

    Yes, we can certainly help book pre and post tour accommodation, please get in touch for more details and prices.

  • How to get to the starting point of the tour?

    Airport transfers are usually included in the price of Peregrine tours. Tours always start in a specified hotel and we let travellers know exactly when they need to be at that hotel.

  • Does Peregrine cater to travellers with special dietary needs?

    Yes, just let us know when you're booking, so we can inform the local leaders. That way they can make sure you are looked after in the local restaurants. Keep in mind that in some places your diet might be slightly limited, as meat often forms an integral part of the local cuisine.

  • What types of food is offered on the tour?

    The tour leaders are local to the regions you visit, meaning they can take you to out of the way places for the most interesting cuisine. Their local knowledge comes in handy for deciphering menus and you can get tips on local delicacies and the most interesting markets to visit.

  • What is the accommodation on the tour?

    Travellers stay in centrally located, comfortable accommodation with private amenities. Peregrine choose smaller hotels to avoid large chains, and some itineraries even offer authentic homestays.

  • Is it possible to arrive early or extend the visit on a destination?

    Peregrine offers trip extensions around some of the start and end cities, for example many people choose to add a Zanzibar beach extension to the end of their Mount Kilimanjaro trip! You can also choose to add pre/ post tour accommodation, so please get in touch for more details.

  • How much free time can travellers enjoy on the tour?

    Peregrine tours are a combination of organised activities and free time. It also depends on the trip, for example, some of the trekking adventures may have less free time than other trips. The framework itinerary is in place and the details are taken care of, but on many days travellers decide what they want to see and do.
