Mahmoud has been the best tour guide I have ever had. He knows so much about the history.

Andrew Burnell

Dear Kasia,

Thank you for your email. I must tell you my trip to Egypt is the best holiday I have ever taken. I love your country and the people are the kindest and friendliest people you could ever meet. Your representatives at ON the Go are the most professional and helpful I have come across. To be met at the airport at 2 in the morning 2 days before our tour even began was beyond kind and helpful. Your tour guides we professional and so knowledgeable and the most wonderful people. My daughter had a birthday while we were on tour and "H" even organised a beautiful birthday cake for her and the waiters at the restaurant sang her happy birthday. I can not thank you enough for such a memorable experience and I am definitely returning to Egypt as soon as I possibly can. I told every one I came across in Spain and when I arrived home to visit Egypt it was an unforgettable experience.

Thank you every one associated with ON the Go.

Thank you for a very enjoyable experience.

Hi On the Go,

My friend and I have recently returned from the Egypt Unplugged tour and we really want to let you know what an amazing time we had!

We have been looking on your website but can't find a way of uploading a traveller review so thought we would email instead.

The whole tour was a brilliant experience and we really cannot imagine any future holiday would be able to beat it!

The sights we saw and the hotels we stayed in were amazing and worth every penny. The whole trip was great value for money.

We especially want to praise and thank our fantastic tour guide Mahmoud Ramadan.

He was so friendly and patient, making sure he answered all the tour group's questions and accommodating their demands. He is clearly an expert in Egyptology and a very informative guide. We have learnt so much from him, that we have come away with not only some brilliant memories but also a wealth of knowledge about Egyptian history and culture.

He is a model ambassador for your company, and we hope you pay him well.

Please let him know how much we appreciated the experience he gave us!

Thank you

Gabby and Jess

Prices shown are per person travelling. 'Twin/Double' prices per person apply when there are 2 people travelling, sharing a room. The 'Single supplement' applies for single travellers who require their own room and needs to be added to the 'Twin/Double' price. If you are happy to be paired up with another single traveller of the same sex on your tour, this can be arranged, thus avoiding the single person supplement.
