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 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.

   Egypt Unplugged - 11 days

Hi Kelly,

This was our second On The Go Tour, and it lived up to the high standard we have come to expect. We were expertly looked after from the moment we stepped off the plane and were met by a representative who collected our bags and arranged for our visas and customs in a short time. We had arrived a day early hoping to do some sightseeing, and by the time we arrived at the hotel a guided day trip to Alexandria had been organised. This set the standard for our time in Egypt as a highly organised and efficient organisation of guides, drivers and administrators looked after our every need and ensured that the whole trip was enjoyable. Special mentions should go to Ahmed in Cairo who seemed to rarely sleep and was always there to make sure everything ran smoothly and all paperwork was in order; and our tour leader/guide for the Alexandria trip plus the King Tut tour - Momo. He is one of the best. He is passionate about his country and its history and we learned so much from him. He made the past come alive and his knowledge about customs, traditions and lifestyles of the ancient world sat comfortably with his understanding and presentation of modern Egypt. He worked hard to make the group feel like an inclusive family unit. He was always available, answered questions easily, introduced us to a variety of wonderful Egyptian food, and made all the difference to our stay in Egypt. At the end of the tour, although he must have been tired, he took us on the Cairo city tour which nicely concluded our stay in the country. We loved the country, its history and its people. Highlights are numerous - the Pyramids, Abu Simbel, many temples, the Egyptian museum, Luxor, Alexandria and Cairo itself. Tourist numbers are down in this country meaning we had lots of space and time to enjoy the sights without the crowds, and yet we always felt absolutely safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend an Egyptian tour - go soon before the crowds rediscover what they are missing.
