  • 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

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. 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. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring. During your trip: You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number. What you can do: Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.

    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.

    Due to the efforts of our tour guide we did not have to worry about a thing which Made Us Feel at ease. We were a bit dissappointed At first to Hear That We would not Be Going To Sinai Due To Security Risks But Were Very Fortunate To Have Visited Dahab Which Has Been One of The Highlights Of Our Trip.fantastic Snorkelling!!

    I would like to thank Peregrine for such a fantastic trip to Egypt. The itinerary was well thought out, and our local guide, Ola Samir was absolutely amazing!. She was extremely helpful in regards to a difficult situation we experienced upon arriving in Cairo, where our baggage was misplaced by the airline. Ola spent a great deal of her own free time in assisting us when our luggage was eventually found. Ola's knowledge of the different areas visited was fantastic, and her excellent sense of humor and personality made every day fun, and very informative. She is epatetic and approachable to all demographics. I would thoroughly recommend her as a guide for future tours. I am a Flight Centre Travel consultant in Brisbane, and will highly recommend Peregrine as the tour company to travel with. Thank you Ola Samir for an unforgettable trip, and thank you Peregrine for your amazing itinerary! I have had a fantastic holiday! Kind regards, Alana Moore.
