Abu Simbel Bolt On Abu Simbel, possibly the most awe-inspiring temple of all ancient Egypt, with its gigantic rock–cut façade, was created to revere the mighty ruler Ramses II. Guarding the entrance to the temple, the 4 colossal statues of Ramses II sit majestically staring out across the desert. Not to be missed!

Make the most of your time away! Listed below are the optional activities that are available on this trip. Please note that you will need to book these prior to travel as we cannot always guarantee availability of these activities once you are on holiday.
|An aerial adventure awaits in Luxor! Imagine drifting silently over temples, ancient sites, ruins and villages in the early morning sun. See ancient Thebes from a different angle as you float above the River Nile and wave down at the locals as you drift a few metres from their open rooftops!|
|The World War II cemeteries of El Alamein. In 1942 the Allies under Britain’s field Marshal Montgomery halted the German- Italian advance towards the River Nile. Marked as a major victory for the Allies, though not without loss of life, with some 11,000 killed and 60,000 wounded. We visit the Commonwealth cemetery and recently erected memorials funded by the Australian and New Zealand governments. Through the arches and beyond the gardens, 7,000 white headstones commemorate the Australian, New Zealand and British soldiers who fought and died here.|

Great Staff! Great organisation! Great Tour! Thank you.
Anthi Campbell King ,
Just a note to say thanks for an excellently organised trip. We had a fantastic time.
In particular I would like to complement your staff in Egypt. All the reps were superb, the organisation was impeccable and they all went out of their way to make sure everything went according to plan. The two guides we had were equally brilliant with amazing knowledge and real enthusiasm about their subjects. The kids were fascinated throughout.
We had a problem with our return flights. Swiss Air did not have us on the passenger list. Not your problem of course but despite this your airport guy spent a very stressful and increasingly frantic 3 hours fixing the problem and dealing with a myriad of airport staff who really couldn't care less. He managed to get us onto the flight with 10 minutes to spare! The guy is a hero. If it weren't for his efforts there is no way we would have been able to sort it out so big thanks there.
Cairo, Aswan and Luxor were wonderful and exciting with great hotels and brilliant tours.
All in all a great trip, well done. I wont hesitate to recommend this trip and to recommend On The Go.
Jez Campbell ,
The whole tour was amazing. The standard of accommodation was much better than I had expected. Our tour guide Yasser - incredible. His knowledge was extensive & his patience lasts a long time. Yasser was the reason that our tour was so good.
Well paced, perfectly balanced between leisure and activities, no pressure, fantastic info from very knowledgable guide.

Myself and my son Nathaniel booked with yourself the 'Pharaohs and Beaches - 13 days' tour to Egypt with On the Go.
I would just like to take this opportunity to say what a fantastic time we both had. Egypt is a lively and fascinating country not only in history but in it's people. I felt the tour covered all the main sights that Egypt had to offer it's visitors.
Also, may I take this opportunity to thank Alam our On the Go Guide who lead our group starting in Cairo and on to Aswan and Luxor. Alam was extremely knowledgable and informative in his country's history and for all the places we visisted. He made the group feel comfortable by being very friendly and easily approachable throughout and was incredibly kind and patient to all the children on the tour especially with my very lively 6 year old son. He is an asset to your company.
I would be more than happy to recommend On the Go to friends who are interested in travelling.
Sam was a wonderful guide - lots of information on all the sites, he made our trip to Egypt very memorable.
Zoe and Mark loved him!
I would definitely do it all again, it was excellent!
my daughter was very happy and well taken care of.
We have all arrived safely back in the UK and wanted to thank you, together with the rest of the staff at on the go, for your help and guidance.
Without a doubt the holiday was superb, and we very much enjoyed the combination of sight-seeing, relaxation and adventure. We were impressed by how well organised the trip was, right from the moment we arrived in Cairo to the final check in on our departure.
In particular we enjoyed your guided tours and were all impressed by your depth of knowledge of all things Pharoahic.
We wish you well with your next group and am sure that they will enjoy the holiday as much as we did.
