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! Bolt on an Abu Simbel excursion.

|Discover the Temples of Abu Simbel on a journey from Aswan by road. Egypt, with its gargantuan rock-cut facade is the magnificent Abu Simbel. Guarding the entrance to the temple are 4 colossal seated statues of King Ramses II, staring out across Lake Nasser.|
|Carry on your Egyptian affair before or after your tour, with a day tour (with lunch) to amazing Alexandria on the Mediterranean Coast. Founded by Alexander the Great, Alexandria boasts wonderful beaches and an impressive seafront corniche, along which are dotted cafes and restaurants, as well as catacombs, souks and relics from a bygone age.|
|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!|
|On our Jewel of the Nile, Family tours and many tailor-made itineraries we include the Sleeper Cabin Train as part of your journey. On all other tours (taking the Nefertiti Seater Train) we offer the option to upgrade to a sleeper cabin on the Sleeper train. Cabins are lockable, equipped with 2 bunk beds, linen, washbasin and towel, allowing passengers to relax and stretch out.|
|Upgrade from the included Nile felucca cruise from Aswan to Luxor and cruise in style aboard a luxury Nile cruiser. Our 5 star cruiser has a bar and restaurant, whilst your well–appointed, air-conditioned cabin offers a private bathroom. The boat deck offers plenty of space for relaxation and a swimming pool. Sightseeing stops are made en-route. All meals included, buffet style during your onboard stay.|
|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.|

Mahmoud is very passionate about Egypt and his work. He goes beyond for us and is happy to talk about all aspects of Egyptian life with us. He should be top Egypt guide!!!!!!

This tour was the best I have ever had! Excellent guides.

I recently returned from the Road to Jordan tour operated by On-The-Go. I wanted to let you know what an amazing time I had in both Egypt and Jordan.
Alam was our guide through Egypt. He has great knowledge to share with his groups and made our tour so much fun. Everyday seemed more amazing than the next visiting some unbelievable sites. I enjoyed learning from Alam about each of the sites and he was able to answer any questions put to him by the group. We were really well looked after and always felt completely safe and at ease. Alam was very approachable and would help us with any concerns we were having, he always made himself available to us. He offered to help us barter at the markets and made sure we always ate in good restaurants. On our Alexandria day trip Alam practically asked every person walking by for directions to the Church where my friends grandparents were married. He was unwilling to give up, and thank goodness we finally found it, but I do think he went above and beyond what most people would have done to get us there!
Okla guided us through Jordan and he was brilliant also. He knew Petra like the back of his hand and was able to guide us through some amazing hikes. He looked after those that were struggling with the walk, encouraging and supporting them along the way. Okla did everything he could to make sure we were happy and went out of his way to help us fix some problems we were having with our journey back to Cairo. My highlight was definitely our night in Wadi Rum, singing around the fire and star gazing! We had some great laughs and although we had only known him for 4 days we felt just like old friends!
I would encourage anyone considering this trip to book it. I hope that tourism does start to pick up again soon... Two amazing countries not to be missed! Please pass on my thanks to our guides.
My guide was brilliant! His knowledge of Egypt was mind-blowing. I will definitely come back to Egypt.
Dear On the Go,
I have recently returned form Egypt having used On the Go tours and I wanted to express my thanks & say how great the service that I received was.
Upon my arrival I was met by one of your representatives who dealt with all the visa paperwork very quickly and stayed with me to collect my baggage. It felt as if I was a VIP!
After leaving the airport, your Cairo rep, Alberto, took us to our hotel, explained out plans and made us feel very comfortable in what was a strange world to us.
Our tour began in the last days of Ramadan, it was a good thing to witness the celebrations and the feast at the end of it!, but we were also aware that it could have not been easy for our guide, Alam, to work under these conditions. We need not have been concerned, he was a constant professional and we could not fault him. Alam shared stories with us, made us laugh, educated us and made us bond together as a group.
I could go on, singing the praises of the level of service & the attitude of your representatives but I would run out of ink & paper ;-)
Thank you On the Go for such an amazing experience!
On the go has exceeded my expectations, its only second hour I have done with them and it's been amazing. Our guide Haytham has been incredible and is an asset to the company.
It was a great tour with a mix of ages and people. Haytham is a great guide. It was a easy, stress free trip in an amazing country.
I just came home from a trip to Egypt/Jordan where I did your 16day Road to Jordan tour. It was amazing, I had the time of my life! It was more then I ever expected. The Felucca boat was a highlight and I am so happy I didn't go on the cruise boat. Also it was really great that the group joined up with 2 other tours so there was about 12 of us, and a good range of ages. & Fantastic tour leaders :)
