You might have been thinking about going on a holiday with your wife and kids. Maybe your uncle wants to join and don’t forget adventurous aunty! What is your family’s next journey? Perhaps a country surrounded by a tropical rainforest, inhabited by cozy-friendly-accessible people and fantastic guides? A family holiday to Suriname with Pejego Tours should definitely be on your to-do list because we will give you a life changing experience!
Pejego Tours is a specialized tour operator offering a range of private and tailor-made tours for those who are traveling with their family looking for something different. On your family holiday to Suriname, your tours will include at least one of the following:
Suriname is a beautiful country, with many different facets after all. A visit to Bigi Pan, Blanche Marie, Kabalebo or the old Plantations is a must, according to some of our guests who have been on tour with us.
The Surinamese culture is very diverse and dynamic and has strong Asian, African and European influences. Almost all the people who live in Suriname have ancestors that came from another continent. Despite this diversity in culture, in Paramaribo a Mosque is located adjacent to a Synagogue, is this not a sign of great tolerance between religions?
In Suriname, you also find food from different kitchens. Taste amazing dishes from Creole, Hindustani, Javanese and Chinese people, all within your reach. Be tempted food from the Maroons and Indians! Throw your hips together with your family after a glass of Casiri (cassava beer) from the Indians! Be careful with the Sambel or Tjatnie though! Those can definitely give you red ears!
In 2002 the Dutch colonial town, Paramaribo, established in the 17th and 18th centuries was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The historic inner city is located along the left bank of the Suriname River. Along this same river, you find 2 historical fortresses Fort Zealandia and Fort New Amsterdam, which are now considered museums you can also visit. The original architecture of most of the buildings in the inner city of Paramaribo and street plan, in general, has largely remained intact and preserved.
On your family holiday to Suriname you can expect a variety of accommodation types, depending on the places you decide to visit. Blanche Marie is really wonderful in terms of location on the river but basic, Kabalebo has one of the best accommodations within the rainforest if it fits within your budget. Eco Resort Inn (in Paramaribo) is a great hotel to stay in between trips. Accommodations on Stone Island and Bigi Pan are very simple but at the same time provide you exactly what you need.

"What was promised/agreed to in advance has been ‘executed’ completely. We knew what to expect. No ‘hidden’ costs. Perfect guidance with a change of chauffeurs/guides which surely makes it unique! A perfect family holiday! Being able to make a round trip was a kind of ‘must’ for us."
"A nice relaxed and care-free vacation organized very well. I am very satisfied with the program, especially as a single traveler! The vacation in Suriname was a mix of culture, nature, and action."
"We have enjoyed everything from the beginning till the end: from Pengel to Pengel! Everything was arranged splendidly and we really felt like their guests. The vacation in Suriname surpassed all our expectations!"
"A very special experience in splendid surroundings."
"Everything was arranged very well. We were serviced completely during the trip and so we could enjoy everything we saw. The guides and chauffeurs were friendly, helpful and informative especially with our kids."
"The tour was impressive, interesting and magnificent. (I did not think before that it would be so amazing). The guides were Superb!"
"The tour was Excellent. The depth of experiences was phenomenal and I still think of Suriname almost every day - even though it's been months since I returned home. The guides were all very impressive in their knowledge of natural and cultural history and showed a true passion for sharing that knowledge. Very resourceful in the face of problems. Patient with our many questions. Willing to share their own lives/perspectives. Great humor. A genuine interest in their guests. Worked hard to understand our expectations and to meet or exceed those expectations. The dug-out canoe was very adventurous. It was nice to travel the way the locals do, rather than on purpose-made tourist boats."
"Suriname has many facets. Friendly and helpful people. Luckily Suriname is not yet overcrowded with tourist, it has its charm and is very original. Despite different origins, people get on well with each other."
"It was super fun! As a Surinamese, I enjoyed all the beautiful things in Suriname, my home country! Such as Blanche Marie Falls, the locals in village Semoisie and last but not least Kabalebo".
