  • Why we love Middle East & North Africa

    • Cities don't come any more atmospheric or exotic than those you explore here: the busy, beautiful bazaars of Iran; Morocco's medinas, each an endless warren of inviting alleys and lanes; Jerusalem's unique blend of religious history and iconic sights; Egypt's variety, from bustling Cairo to languorous Aswan
    • Both more glorious in reality than any postcard or photo can hope to convey, the twin stars of Jordan and Egypt really do need to be seen to be believed
    • Morocco has a wonderful power to ‘transport’. In the narrow, shaded alleys of the souks of Fez, where the stalls are arranged by craft, a wall of mirrors turns into a bank of shiny brass. Overlaid with the pungent aroma of the nearby tannery, it could be any year, any century.
    • No matter how high your expectations, Al Khazneh (The Treasury) in Petra will exceed them. And while you can travel from the front gate by donkey or carriage, we think an essential part of the experience is the walk in

Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons.

    Morocco: 6 things you didn't expect to be enchanted by

    Morocco tends to evoke images of sultry souks filled with hand-woven rugs, honey-drenched sweets and gold trinkets, with the pungent aroma of spices and shisha smoke heavy on the air, and the discordant but enchanting call to prayer echoing off ochre sandstone.

    Classical Egypt

    Jacqueline - Australia, 13 Jan, 2014
    Overall Rating

    Egypt is a stunning country that lived up to the expectations I had been building up since my school days. The best part of my trip however was our guide, Hoda Sayed.

    Nile Valley Highlights

    Jim & Joy - United Kingdom, 10 Jan, 2014
    Overall Rating

    We cannot praise Hoda too highly. She created a really good group atmosphere & spirit and taught us a lot about Egyptian society in general and the changing role of educated women in particular. Her knowledge and presentation of Egyptian History both ancient & modern was really impressive and enjoyable.

    The Nile, Alexandria & El Alamein

    Kelton - Australia, 27 Jan, 2014
    Overall Rating

    Any issues were due to events outside Peregrine's control, So I do not have any feedback to offer.
