Family on camels at the Pyramids of Giza

Postcards from Egypt

Here's what some of our past traveller's have to say about their holiday with us:

 

Hi Sarah,

Just thought I would pop you a quick email to let you know how amazing the tour was – all aspects of it were even better than I imagined and I have pretty high expectations from what I have heard and know about On the Go!

First of all I would like you to pass on how beyond amazing Haytham was! He is by far the best tour guide myself and my family have ever had on all levels. He went above and beyond for all of us everyday to make sure we had an awesome time, got the best deals and the most out of our time in Egypt. His knowledge and experience in the Egyptian tourism industry and its history was mind blowing!

I would also like you to pass on how amazing Aamer was when we were on our Nile cruise – again nothing was to much for him, he made sure we all had a great time and that we were looked after. Aamer was an amazing guide around the temples we visited whilst on the cruise as well.

Everything from being collected inside the airport, the transfers and transportation, the itinerary, the spectacular 5* cruise, the add on’s and spectacular sites visited, places we were taken to eat, the amazing tour guides was outstanding! We all had the best time and couldn't recommend On the Go highly enough.

We will all be doing On the Go tours again in other countries in the future!

Thanks so much for all your help with this as well :)

   Festive King Ramses - 14 days

When my sister and I decided to embark on the Festive King Ramses trip to Egypt to celebrate her 30th birthday, I didn't know what to expect, but I knew I would have a great experience, considering it was one of the top five places I had always dreamed of traveling to. It was also the first tour group I had been part of and I was excited and anxious to be in a different country over Christmas and the new year.
On the first day, our tour guide, Haytham briefed us on the plan for the next two weeks. He was very thoughtful to give us all Santa hats to wear to help with being away from home for the holidays. He also mentioned On The Go's policy that if there was anything he could do to make our stay more enjoyable, he would do it if it was possible. Throughout the entire trip, he more than lived up to this promise.
Over the next few days, we toured dozens of iconic pyramids and temples. At each site, Haytham did an exceptional job of telling us detailed stories and facts about the history behind everything. He has a true gift in the way he shares information to convey all of the glory and splendor that the pyramids and temples hold. Listening to his explanations, I felt in awe of the accomplishments of the ancient Egyptians and often found myself imagining/wishing I was there when all the structures were being built.
One of the highlights of the trip was sailing down the Nile on a Felucca over Christmas. I really appreciated that Haytham made an extra effort to order a Turkey for a delicious Christmas Eve feast and stay up to wish everyone aboard a Merry Christmas at midnight. Also, supplying wi-fi, arranging transport for extra activities, celebrating birthdays, and being available 24/7 to socialize or answer any questions we had was much appreciated and helped to make the trip special.
Overall, I had a great experience with On The Go Tours and the trip was better than anything I could've ever imagined. Thanks to Haytham and the organization of the tour, I never once felt unsafe or felt like I wanted more out of the trip. Haytham's passion and constant high energy really shined through and contributed to the trip of a lifetime. By the end of the trip, I was sad to go home wishing I could have spent more time in Egypt.
Upon returning home, I have been recommending On The Go Tours and traveling to Egypt to my friends and sharing my positive experience. I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to go to Egypt and to have had such an awesome tour guide! I hope Egypt has a return to higher levels of tourism in the near future so more people can experience all the awe inspiring sites and rich culture that Egypt has to offer. And now if I can just get over this never ending jet-lag...

   Festive King Ramses - 14 days

Dear Sarah

I just wanted to write and thank you for organising our unforgettable trip to Egypt. We had the most amazing time and will treasure our memories of it.

The representative of On The Go were wonderful - they looked after our every need and often went beyond the call of duty to make sure we had the best experience. Our guide Ahmed Helal was excellent. His thorough knowledge of Egyptology was evident and he managed to convey information in a very skilful way, introducing a subject and later picking it up so that our knowledge deepened and the things that we saw made more sense as we put it all into context. He also ensured that we had the best experience of our tour, seeing temples and picking out details that we would never have seen otherwise.

Ahmed was not only a wonderful and incredibly knowledgable guide but he was also excellent at getting things done. He sorted out all practical details pf our stay, making sure that we had adjoining rooms etc in such a way that we had a very comfortable and wonderful experience. He made sure that we always knew where he was so that we could contact him if we needed to, so we had no concerns of any kind throughout the trip.

In Cairo we were excellently looked after by Abdul, who took us to Khan al-Khalili Bazaar on our last night, which gave us a truly memorable end to our stay. Abdul (Midou) was so much fun and very charming and we all really enjoyed his company.

The tour itself was incredible and the variety of location and what they had to offer meant that each day brought a fresh marvel! The Pyramids and Sphinx were phenomenal - to actually be was amazing. The camel rides were great fun too! Visiting Aswan and sailing on the Nile to visit the Nubian village was an unexpected hi-light for me. The Nile is such a beautiful river! Luxor blew us all away - it is just such an incredible place. The Valley of the Kings has such an eerie desolation about it, and we were lucky enough tho find Tutankamun's tomb open so fulfilled a lifelong wish to visit that. That night we visited Luxor Temple in the evening, which was magical. We had a hot air balloon ride the next morning and then visited Karnak. Each day enriched the others and it gave us a very full and many layered experience.

The journey to Hurghad was another unexpected high point - discovering the country and the change from lucy Nile valley to arid but beautully colourful desert was eye opening. Then the last few day spent in Hurghada was a wonderful way to digest and relax, and very popular with our teenage children. The snorkelling was out of this world!

All the hotel we stayed in were amazing in different ways, but Hurghada was so much fun, and the staff were very friendly. The food was great throughout and the rooms luxurious and comfortable.

Thank you once again for a truly wonderful experience. We would not hesitate to recommend it to everyone and will be telling our friends all about it!

With very best regards

   Pharaohs and Beaches - 13 days

Hi,

Just wanted to drop a line to say what a fantastic time we had on the jewel of the Nile tour last month – This was our second time booking with on the go ( we did Southern Africa 2 years back) and we were not let down. Our Tour header Helal was absolutely amazing- we couldn’t ask for a more knowledgeable and experience tour guide, He even made the effort to come back and do a Cairo day tour with us after our tour had finished. We had a bit of a mix up with some flight times which the group was unhappy with, Helal went above and beyond to make everyone happy and to make up for it and we are really appreciated it.

Looking forward to booking our next ‘’on the go’’ Holiday!

   Egyptian Explorer - 8 days


The Pyramids were amazing as was the Valley of the Kings! Our Felucca cruise did not cruise very far but was a relaxing time and the whole tour group of 8 bonded. The Abu Simbel trip was well worth the money with the rock face being spectacular. Hot Air Ballooning in Luxor was a real blast and such a highlight for the trip. The second half of the tour to El Alamein, Siwa and Alexandria was at a much slower pace and there was only myself and my wife on the tour but the tour guide and 4x4 driver catered well for this and extended our itinerary so we saw more than expected.

Overall we had a great experience in the place where we had always wanted to go. We would have no hesitation in recommending this tour to fellow travellers.
