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, seemingly since time began.
Not to be missed! Bolt on an Abu Simbel excursion.

The hotels listed below are ones which we frequently use on this tour. We reserve the right to substitute these hotels to ones of a similar standard when necessary.
Here's what some of our past travellers have written in to us and said about their experiences on this trip.
I want to pass on my thanks to the Egypt team and specifically our guide Mahmoud Ramadan for providing and creating an experience that will never be forgotten.
Mahmoud's knowledge of Egypt was exceptional and he definitely went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our time in Egypt as well as learning about the country and customs. He made me feel comfortable from the first day and by the end of the tour we were like a little family, I believe this was due to Mahmoud's awesome personality.
The tour accommodation was better than I expected (top rate) and I am so happy that I elected the Dunes and Tombs because the desert and camping was the highlight of my trip in Egypt.
When we joined with the larger group half way through the tour it was good in the fact we got to meet other tourists enjoying the country as well, although at the same time it was difficult due to the numbers on the tour, it was also a shame to no longer have Mahmoud imparting his passion for Egypt, it was noticed and missed.
Dahab was like heaven, such a beautiful place and Dino did a great job looking after the group.
Again, I want to express my thanks to those involved (in particular Mahmoud, the best guide in Egypt) in making my stay and trip in Egypt one that I will remember and I will definitely look to take another On The Go tour again in the future if they are all of this standard. I will also be hopefully returning to Egypt in the future with other family and friends who are also passionate to learn about the country.
Many many thanks
I had a great time with on the go made a lot of friends, hope see all of them again!

Egypt was quite an experience made all the more enjoyable with kindness, passion and knowledge of our guide Bassam. Thanking you kindly for making my stay most memorable!
Emily O'Reilly ,
Just to say a big thank you for our Egypt Dunes and Tombs adventure. I have travelled quite a bit but this was the best of all. On-the-go had just the right mix of information, guidance, opportunity to do your own thing, glamour and down-to-earth experiences with great guides and excellent organization. The real highlight was the night in the desert feeding the desert foxes our left-over chicken bones. The nights at oasis were great and also the Red Sea.
I look forward to another On-the-go adventure next winter – perhaps in Africa.

Mr John Hayes,
I have returned from my holiday in Egypt which was absolutely awesome. The people of Egypt are so friendly and extremely welcoming. It was one of the best holidays I have been on and I believe that is not only a testament to Egypt and its people but also to your tour company who ensured that my trip was a holiday, and I had all the time in the world to explore those parts that I was interested in. Not once did I feel like I was being rushed, the tour was well paced and you were able to spend time in some amazing places. The Dunes and Tombs tour I would recommend to anyone, it showed you all aspects of Egypt, the history, the fantastic scenery and also the playful side of Egypt such as Dahab. It was one adventure after another and each day there were new sights to see that were just amazing. But the highlight of the trip itself was the time spent in the desert, having the opportunity to see such spectacular scenery but also to mix with some of the locals along the way and gain an insight into their lives.
The tour itself was well managed and everything was completely organized. Not once were we left guessing as to what we were to do next as we were always kept informed. The tour leaders are to be recommended not only for their knowledge on all aspects of the history of Egypt but also their patience in answering endless questions. I was mainly with Alam for the tour and he was fantastic, very knowledgeable, patient, thoughtful and caring. I had Big Mo for some of the trip and he was also excellent. Both these guides are an asset to your company and to Egypt. Their passion for their country and for OntheGo shows all the time. The whole time that we were in Egypt both Alam and Big Mo ensured that we felt safe and well cared for, providing tips on what you can expect from each place that we visited. I just hope the tourists start coming back to Egypt as it is a wonderful country and the people are warm and friendly.
Anyway thank you for your part in making my trip seem so easy, you are one of the best organized tour groups that I have come across, and I will definitely be recommending your company to others, and taking many more trips with Onthego. I will also definitely be visiting Egypt again as there are many places that I still would like to visit.
Excellent range, very memorable. By far the best tour company I have travelled with. Best tour guide ever; Mohammed was knowledgeable, funny, polite, etc. He has ensured the tour to be fantastic and educational.
Best guide ever! Awesome boat, great guys and great food. Pyramids, Abu Simbel and the White Desert were highlights. Mohammed the tour guide was so amazing. I'm already suggesting On The Go to family :)
Benjamin Nicholas ,
I had never done one of these before and had no idea what to expect. I ended up having a blast and I recommend On The Go to anyone going to Egypt. Overall it was truly an awesome experience, and if I didn't have other places in the world to see, I'd go back. I am already planning my next vacation and keeping my great experience with On The Go in mind. Honestly, visiting Egypt was one of the greatest things I've ever done in my life and I have On The Go to thank for doing a wonderful job taking care of all of the logistics, great hotels, transportation, and the lovable tour guides: Sheriff Rules!!! and the other guys were great too.
