  • Why we love South America & Central America

    • Latin America does nature on an unashamedly grand scale - from some of the world's best trekking in Patagonia's national parks to exploring Costa Rican cloud-forests; venturing upriver in Ecuador's Amazon to standing in awe of iconic Iguazu Falls
    • A great experience is to go to a milonga in Buenos Aires. These local tango shows are often in the back of a small restaurant and can be hard to find, so inside knowledge is the key!
    • Twitchers will love the Galapagos, and the nesting grounds of the waved albatross on Espanola Island. The birds nest on a cliff, and you can stand on the edge of it and watch these amazing creatures with a huge wingspan, flying right towards you
    • Around beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, in Chichicastenango, you’ll see priests performing ancient Mayan religious rituals on the steps of the relatively new (only four centuries old!) Catholic church
    • See the native Aymara women in the street markets of La Paz with their brightly coloured dresses offset by a few-sizes-too-small bowler hat

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 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.

    This review ismfor,the Bolivia portion of my trip. I reviewed Peru last week. Bolivia is a good destination. Not a lot of tourists go there so it is relatively unspoiled for the serious traveler. It is not expensive so one receives good value for the money.

    I had heard and read a lot about Peru, and having been on another trip with Peregrine I was in no doubt that it would be the journey of a lifetime. However, the entire experience far exceeded my expectations. What I saw was stunning, the organisation was faultless, accommodation and transport excellent and our host and the local guides delightful.
