Postcards from Egypt

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

 

Hello,
I visited Egypt last month through your King Ramses tour and wanted to let you know how great it was. Our tour guide, Mohamed Saiid, was not only very welcoming, he was also very knowledgeable. Mohamed was also very accommodating and helpful with any problems we had along the way. I'll be sure to recommend this tour to any friends looking for a vacation destination.

   King Ramses - 14 days

To whom it may concern,

I have just returned from the Pyramids, Petra and Promised Land tour with On The Go and wanted to let you know that I had an amazing experience! The part which stood out most for me was the Egypt section of the tour with MoMo. It was fun, well organised and very informative.
I have been interested in Ancient Egypt since I was a small girl, so to experience Egypt with someone as qualified and so obviously passionate about his job as MoMo made this the best vacation I have taken to date. I left Egypt loving the country more than I had before arriving, with the ability to recognise for myself styles of Ancient Egyptian art, Pharonic vs Greek/Roman temples and able to identify a plethora of different Pharaohs and Gods.
MoMo was punctual and always happy to answer questions. He immediately negated any concerns about safety within the group and was always conscious of our individual locations at the sights. I was particularly impressed one morning on the way to Abu Simbel (which I have wanted to see since I was 7 years old!) when our bus broke down. After a two hour wait, he decided that instead of cutting time short at the sight, that he would organise for us to go the next day instead (despite meaning he would have to get up at 3am again!). This was the highlight of the tour for me!
I want to say a big thank you to MoMo for helping me fulfil a lifelong dream and giving me an experience I will never forget!

Dear On The Go Tours

Hi, I just got back from Egypt yesterday. I did the King Ramses tour from the 19th of April to 2nd of May 2014. On The Go Tour in Egypt has been an amazing holiday and this is definitely due to our tour guide Haytham Youssry.

Haytham is a very friendly and outgoing person which made it easy for the entire group to get along with him and become great friends. Throughout the whole tour he has been very helpful, giving us great advice to keep us safe and have the best time in Egypt. He kept the tour well organized and relayed important information to the group at all times.

His recommendations to restaurants and things to do were awesome and I believe that they made the tour more special as we got to try things like a local living in Egypt. It amazes me the experiences Haytham has gone through in his life and you can clearly see how passionate he is for his country, the ancient history and his love for King Ramses II. You can tell he really loves his job as a tour guide having the opportunity to share his love for Egypt with people from all over the world.

His extensive and vast knowledge of all the temples and historical sites in Egypt was very impressive and I feel very fortunate to have Haytham leading our tour group especially as he is an Egyptologist. I really enjoyed his talks about the history of Egypt and this made the trip more worthwhile to get a better understanding of the ancient history.

I am so going to miss Haytham but at least I know I have made a great friend.

   King Ramses - 14 days

Good day,
I would like to thank On The Go Tours for the amazing experience in Egypt on the King Ramses tour leaving on the 19 April 2014.
This was in fact thanks to the most amazing, fantastic and wonderful tour guide ever, Haytham. It was thanks to him that my wife and I had an unforgettable experience and probably the best holiday of our lives.
He made us feel so welcome, befriended us without even knowing us and created an amazing atmosphere within our group.
If it was not for Haytham, I doubt that our experience would have been so amazing. Egypt is such a magical place but made more so by the treatment that we received from our guide Haytham. He has helped us develop a love for the country and definitely consider utilizing On the Go Tours again in the near future.
Thank you so much for allocating Haytham to our group :)

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to email you guys to say HUGE thank you to an amazing tour that we had to Egypt! We are already on your website planning and counting pennies to see if Turkey or Vietnam will be our next tour with you guys. The service was really great - job well done! Seeing that this was our first overseas trip, we were so nervous but with On the Go representatives at the airport to assist, at the hotels to assist, made it soo much easier and we could just sit back and enjoy every moment. Told family about how great the service was and that we will use On the Go again!

Huge thank you to Corina at Flight Centre for all her patients with us......all the questions we asked.....i thought this poor chick will tell us to go somewhere els. Thanks Carina! Cant wait to hear all your stories about Vietnam.....give us some guidance of what to do and no to do when we go.....hahaha!

To Haytham in Egypt.....we spoke about it on our way back.....that part of the trip being so amazing was his presence and huge personality!! He spoiled everyone on the trip......when it was hot.....an ice cream would wait for you on the bus.......there were 2 birthdays in our group....when we were at certain places.....there was the birthday cake for them.

For myself and my husband.....our 1 year wedding anniversary on this trip......he organized at the Nubian restaurant a anniversary cake and a small gift to me....this is priceless.....he didnt have to do it but his heart is huge and it is one of the 3000 photo's that we will definately print to put on our wall!!

His patience level with a very difficult customer that was part of our group.....we all felt sorry for Haytham......she was not an easy person but he handeled her with respect and buckets full of patience. If it was me, would have thrown her overboard loooooong ago! Go Haytham!!

The south african group are planning a special box of south african goodies to post to him......just to say thank you for all the trouble, the effort and love he showed us South Africans. He knew a bit of Afrikaans language which was special for us.....that he could share as a personal joke between the south africans during our trip.

We had a bit of the other tour representatives when we went to Alamein and the churches, when we did the bolt on's.......they were great but Haytham made the tour by giving something of himself. The other guys were reserved and professional....nothing wrong with that at all. But Haytham is as special as the pyramids and the Nile......and do hope that he will stay with your company for many years to come just so that more people can experience his vibrant personality!!

To Alberto who helped to organize more Hibbuscis leaves for me to take back home and his funny jokes.....big hugs and take you!! To Ashraf, our driver, who couldnt speak much english but just wanted to buy us stuff......first it was warm tea and then cane juice....shame he just wanted to give us stuff! Very special guy! Huge thank you to them too!!

From a very sad South African who is now back home......wishing we were still in Egypt. Thank you to everyone for an awesome 1 year anniversary trip!

   King Tutankhamen - 9 days

I just wanted to let you know much of an epic time I had on holiday. I just came home from the 9 day guided your of Egypt. The king tutankhamun tour. Our tour guide was Haytham Youssry. He was amazing. My trip would have been good without him, but his hospitality made it epic. This was by far the best holiday of my life. And I know Haytham played a huge part in that. You are a very lucky company to have such a knowledgeable, charismatic, caring man on your payroll. He routinely went above an beyond the roll of a tour guide to make the entire group feel welcome and like family. He even literally saved my life when my insulin pump broke whilst on the falucca boat. I cannot say enough kind words about him!

   King Tutankhamen - 9 days

To Whom It May Concern,

I have recently come back from one of your tours (El Alamein & Ancient Egypt) and felt that I had to write to say what a wonderful experience it was.

Not only was the tour itself well selected, visiting many of the historical and cultural highlights that gives Egypt its well deserved reputation as a must on any travel list, but the logistics and organisation were extremely well handled: from the first booking, to arriving at Cairo, all the way through the tour to the flight home again, everything was well handled and I could just relax and enjoy the holiday. Even the group itself were wonderful; everyone getting on well together to create a wonderful atmosphere and made the whole holiday an unforgettable experience.

Most importantly the guide, Haytham Youssry, was absolutely brilliant. He was able to use his experience and knowledge of Egypt to pass on interesting facts, making them come alive as well as finding that often difficult balance between the informative and the entertaining - the whole group were hooked on his every word (from the reign of Ramses II to the myths and legends of Ancient Egypt to the recommendations for a restaurant for that night's dinner). In the hotel in Aswan, I had problems with a room key and he was able to sort it out quickly and efficiently with the reception so that it was soon resolved. He looked after the whole group (and showed infinite patience with one member of the group who was difficult at times), making sure that we were okay the whole time and that we were enjoying ourselves and almost felt like a friend on our travels. (Whilst I'm sure that you have a number of similarly excellent guides, I genuinely don't think that the tour would have been quite the same with anybody else!)

In short, thank you once again for a wonderful holiday (dare I say one of the best holidays I have been on). I shall certainly recommend to my friends and family to try a tour with you, and hope to go on another of your tours in the future.

   El Alamein & Ancient Egypt - 12 days

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.
