At the start of April, we completed Intrepid's 'Premium Japan' tour that ran between 16 and 27 March. We also took the opportunity to spend a few days in Tokyo before the tour and stayed on in Kyoto for another few… More days afterwards. We then stopped over in Singapore for a few days on our way back to Perth. Intrepid's tour of Japan was extremely well organised. We enjoyed great accommodation. The tour was designed to make full use of the excellent public transport available in Japan, wherever possible. We travelled on Shinkansen bullet trains, luxury tourist trains, local urban and rural trains, local buses, ferries and on trams - plus a funicular and a cable car. Our excellent intrepid tour guide made sure no time was wasted waiting for transport to arrive, as he got us onto railway platforms every time a few minutes before the train departed. The tour program managed to fit in many great locations in a short period. We visited important shrines, temples, countryside, villages and cities. Japan proved to be a great place for a travel vacation. We also want to thank Mike Wood of Peregrine WA who worked with us to book the tour from the outset.
I would like to share my thoughts on my recent trip to Antarctica organised so well by Mike Wood in Perth.I travelled on the Ocean Endeavour leaving Ushuaia 8/2/2023.
We were greeted by a positive, enthusiastic , friendly staff ….all… More the activities were extremely well organised so each activity ran smoothly. We knew exactly what we had to do and felt safe at all times.The guides went out of their way to ensure that we could do and see as much as possible. The weather was perfect for us so we were able to kayak every day and learned so much from our very knowledgeable experienced guides.’The Plunge’ was fun, food was great , catering for different diets and plenty of variety..Loved listening to the presentations from a variety of speakers who were so passionate about their various fields. They all displayed a love for Antarctica and are determined to keep it as is…I am a teacher and the children I work with are about to learn SO much about Antarctica. …!!
We have recently returned from a Tasmania's Wild Walks Trip organised by Mike Wood from Peregrine Travel in conjunction with Inspiration Outdoors. What a fantastic trip it was. Walking many of the different tracks across Tasmania… More in a variety of weather. Some walks were quite challenging but always took you to a fabulous vista. The trip was well organised, and re-organised due to the challenges of COVID. The accommodation and food were great and our guide from Inspiration Outdoors sensational. We have booked a number of trips through Peregrine and have always been very satisfied with the professionalism, communication and organisation. Would highly recommend them to anyone.
2020 is memorable for many reasons...but mostly for the wonderful time spent on the Walking in Patagonia trip in January with Mike Wood and Peregrine. This is at least our 8th or 9th trip with Peregrine - Mike and his team are superbly… More well organised and a delight to travel with. A truely delightful holiday with wonderful company 😊👍
We have just completed the 18-day 310km coast-to-coast hike across England with Mike Wood and we had a wonderful time.
Everything was well organised by Peregrine Travel Perth and, as a very influential person, Mike was even able to… More dial up some excellent weather while we were huffing and puffing our way up and down mountains in the beautiful Lake District.
Over such a long distance encompassing 3 national parks we faced many challenges including a wide variety of landscapes and weather conditions. Mike is a very experienced tour leader and was always well organised and prepared. We had a lovely group of like-minded hiking companions and together we enjoyed many memorable experiences as we undertook this amazing adventure.
At the end of each day it was always nice to reach our well-chosen accommodation for a hot shower, hot meal and a nice warm bed.
This was our second trip with Peregrine Travel Perth and we certainly recommend them.
We recently throughly enjoyed the Jewels of the Adriatic tour from the 3rd —15th June. Travelling with a small group becomes a tour with good friends. Our tour leader Marina was fantastic looking out for our welfare at all times, sorting… More out any little problem and taking or suggesting quirky little restaurants and places to visit or shop. Her knowledge of all the areas we visited made everything very interesting. Our driver Yevo was an excellent driver, always smiling and a real gentleman. There was a good balance between natures beauty and history. At the end of our tour we travelled up to Zagreb and thoroughly enjoyed that as well. Thanks to all at Peregrine travel centre for helping to make our holiday so enjoyable.
Recently participated in travels to Patagonia and the Antartic Peninsular. It was the first time I’ve ever been part of a group travel (I’ve done a lot of travelling, but always as an independent) so I was a bit apprehensive.
Much… More of my concern was well allayed before departure: the ease of booking all the components of this ‘once in a life time’ journey and the information updates provided by the awesomely competent and efficient Jenelle let me know I was embarking on a journey with a highly professional company.
The small group with whom I shared the Patagonian side of the journey were great - one wonders if they were handpicked for compatability.
Our local area guides were amazing! The value added to my experience due to their knowledge and skill in imparting that, I know I could not have gained as an independent traveller.
The Antartic experience was incredible - so amazing to be visiting that last continent in the company of so many passionate and knowledgeable others, so willing to share their knowledge and experience.
Certainly, there were a couple of things that could be changed, but having Mike along as part of group means he heard our feedback immediately and we know it will be taken on board.
Oh, and one of the highlights was our lovely South American guide - Luciano - so knowledgeable, and willing to go the extra yard to ensure we all got the most out of our experience - priceless!
Thanks to every one for the great memories.
Mike, Jos and the crew at Peregrine are tremendous to travel with. They bring a unique depth of experience in each of the places they go, built on many years of personally exploring the world plus solid preparation and a hands-on approach… More to everything.
Fabulous trips x4 to Galápagos Islands, Turkey, Russia & Baltic states. So effortless with wonderful guides, & not missing any highlights. Boat , bus ,train & bike! All easy for this 70 year old, thanks to Peregrine WA… More
Travelling on the itineraries Peregrine WA have put together for me means I feel secure and confident everything has been taken care of so i can reach my destination safely. It also means if I need anything while I'm away I can… More contact the team to arrange it, rather than navigating patchy internet access and language barriers. Dealing with airlines is a special skill set, and these guys get the best deals and make other arrangements when airlines let you down. I would never travel any other way.
Had one of the best experiences of my life with these guys- trekking to Everest Base Camp and over the High Passes. The organisation, itinerary, company and inclusions were fantastic. They have also liaised with overseas contacts to… More arrange holidays on a small scale and have been thorough and inventive with planning. Their detailed knowledge of amazing locations means that you can be sure that you will have the most amazing trip. Am looking forward to many more ...
