I thought some feedback might be useful for you - please pass this on to your boss.
On the Go arrangements worked out really well - THANKS
My wife & I would like to make special mention of our guide in Beijing & Xian - 'Mandy'. She was brilliant - very efficient, kind, interesting and informative.
The other people were also good ('Benny' and 'Ray')
All the arrangements we needed worked out well - thanks for all of your help - my biggest fear was that because we were on our own for the last 5 days the transfer to Pu Dong airport would not happen. This was not the case and we got to the airport in plenty of time.
We would be pleased to recommend On the Go tours to others - well done.
Keep up the good work! ”
Just to let you know I really enjoyed the Fine China tour. I'd never done a tour before so came without preconceptions.
The itinerary was very well-thought out and with about the right amount of free time, especially on the first day. The guides were all great, ditto drivers, hotels very good too. I also liked being with a small group (11) from different countries, which gave it less of a package tour feel & more like-minded travellers. Also appreciated your efficiency before the trip, everything was very well organised.
The only downside was the massive number of other tourists everywhere we went, partly because the first Wednesday was Tomb Sweeping Festival, which meant a 5-day holiday starting at the weekend. So it was a real Chinese holiday experience!
Felt like royalty when only 2 of us headed south to Guilin & Yangshuo - both brilliant, anyone who has time & funds should go there. We left for Guilin in the morning of day 10 so had time to explore there too - a good idea as it's a nice town and well worth a visit in its own right. All the guide's suggestions were great so saw loads over and above the tour itinerary, like the brilliant Impressions show directed by film director Jiang Yi Mou (of Olympic fireworks display fame), caves with back lit stalagmites & stalactites (Yangshuo), tea plantation visit with tea processing demo, cable car ride up the mountain, which turned out to be a chair lift (not for the nervous, we were terrified going up, not so bad coming down), Guilin river & lakes cruise... Also spent a pleasant evening exploring Guilin's Sun and Moon pagodas & listening to music drift over the lake from the cafe opposite...
Also loved Shanghai, would recommend booking the latest flight available on the final day, or doing what I did and staying an extra night. I'm not that devoted to museums, but Shanghai museum was fantastic. Then there's the old town and market, Yuyuan gardens, Pudong financial district (spectacular modern architecture), the 3 hour river cruise (leaves 2pm) to the mouth of the Yangtse...
I will definitely be recommending otg to others
Thanks for everything ”
Safely home after a really great trip. Great travelling companions, although our guide Feng had the odd problem or two. I raelly must commend her, she was concerned about each and every one of us and went out of her way to ensure that we were safe and happy, even as we stood waiting for our departure aircraft. A truely wonderful and thoughtful guide.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip to my friends. ”
Let me start by congratulating on the go for organizing such a fantastic tour! I saw and learnt so much about history, Chinese culture and traditions - more then I ever read in a book.
This tour was a once in a lifetime opportunity and i'm so fortunate to have had a chance to visit such a beautiful country that is rich in history, culture, people, delicious food and an overall welcoming environment.
Yekaterinburg has a lot to offer to tourists. During our stay we were taken to khaski dog sledding a fantastic day, we really enjoyed ourselves. The following day we had an interesting tour of the city and were taken to the Europe/Asia border. In all a very enjoyable stay made even special by our host Nonna. Our guide Natalia was very helpful and informative, many thanks.”
I have just finished my tour with On the Go - Great Wall & Warriors.
I have had a fantastic time with them! The service has been first class from the moment I first made the booking to my departure at the airport. The guides were very informed and always accommodating.
This was my first time with a tour group and the experience was great. I would definitely recommend On the Go and look forward to booking another adventure with them.

I did the Highway to Moscow tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Right from the start, my agent Janet was extremely helpful. She replied to e-mails quickly and answered all questions.
The pick ups and transfers were problem free and easy to spot. The hosts of the home stays in Russia were amazing. They were extremely friendly and cooked us delicious traditional food.
My friend and I had enough free time to wander by ourselves and we met some great people on our tour.
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone that is interested in doing a Trans-Siberian railway trip.”
