“Just about perfect...”
We had a fabulous trip, staying at Lauterbrunnen with the hospitable Mark and Ursula and never ending spectacular views. Accommodation is basic but very clean and comfortable, excellent breakfast and good night meals, a great bunch of fellow travellers and so much fun on New Years Eve - a place to revisit. The train system is brilliant, the area a perfect springboard to the best Alpine locations. Add to that an excellent value for money trip, the kindness of the Swiss people and perfect weather and ...read more it was a memorable week.
Just the perfect way to end a 10 week South American tour. The guide, people, and the history were unforgettable. A relaxing way to end the trip.
“3 day Paracas & Nazca lines tour”
The tour was great, the hotel was good & in the center of town. We were picked up in Lima on time & everything was perfect. The flight over the Nazca lines was wonderful & so was the boat trip out to Ballestas Islands. Our guide was good & gave us lots of information on the area & sunset in the desert was beautiful.
Peregrine's optional extra at Posada Amazonas was fantastic. The accommodation was amazing, and the attention to detail appreciated. Open accommodation with the jungle experience to be watched from your own private hammock in your bedroom. The organised walks and boat rides were well planned, with our guide being very informative. A level of fitness necessary, and a torch. Great.
