The question I have to ask myself is why I have I taken until the age of 54 to visit Egypt for the first time. Oh my what a spectacular and varied country - so much history and then so much natural beauty - snorkelling in the red sea was breathtaking.

Full marks to 'on the go tours' from the minute I walked through the airport doors a rep was there to meet me and he kindly saw me through immigration, collection of baggage and customs it was so easy and quick and the same applied to when I left the country.

I chose the King Ramses - 14 day tour - it was absolutely excellent. The tour covered all the major sites and events and also we had lots of down time to absorb and relax and enjoy the surroundings. Alum our tour guide was brilliant he was kind, sensitive with a fabulous sense of humour - his knowledge and explanations were outstanding and he gave us enough information I never felt saturated!!!

my holiday and journey to Egypt was absolutely wonderful and it was with a heavy heart I waved Cairo farewell in the early hours of Saturday the 6th of July 2013 - the experience surpassed all my expectations.

Thank you to Alum you really were pivotal in what was the most extraordinary and wonderful experience and I wish you and your colleagues good health and happiness and thank you to you all for a wonderful holiday which I have wanted to make since I was a young girl and I will never forget your beautiful country Egypt. ”

Dear On the Go,

I on the 17th May 2013 had the great pleasure of taking part in your 14 day King Ramses tour of Egypt with Alam Otg as our tour guide. I personally want to thank Alam and all the other wonderful On The Go tours staff. From the moment we stepped off the plane in Cairo every need and want you could imagine was met, nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. Alam's passion, enthusiasm and love for his country made in my opinion not just me but our whole tour group fall in love with Egypt. I felt safe and welcomed by everyone we met. Again I would like to thank Alam and On the Go for a magical unforgettable experience. I will highly recommend On the Go to all my friends and family and I look forward to exploring more of what this great planet has to offer with On the Go.

I recently did a nine day tour of Egypt with On The Go.

The tour guides were well informed and gave us excellent information about the history and architecture of the many sites. Also the guides were also very aware of the needs of all group members, and made every effort to accommodate all of our needs and requests.

Accommodation and food all good. The felucca trip was well organised, interesting and very relaxing, made so much more comfortable by having the motor boat with us for toilet and meals, etc

Alam, our guide, talked to us about the political and economic situation. Our tour finished the day before the demonstrations commenced. We managed to complete all parts of the tour, including the Egyptian Museum. We were kept informed of the political position at all times, but never felt in any danger.

Our group consisted of 18 from ages 15 to 67. There was a wonderful rapport between all members of the group and our guide Alam. Lots of fun and laughter.

Yes I certainly will look at more On the Go Tours in future. ”

Hi Trace,

Everything went off pretty much perfectly. On The Go was such a great choice. They were on the ball, completely professional and really experts in travelling through Egypt, Jordan and Israel.

The guides, particularly our Egypt guide, were incredible. But I think the best bit was that they met us at the airport in Cairo inside the immigration area (even though it was 2.30am) and filled out all our paperwork, took us through immigration & got our bags for us and were at our hotel within an hour getting ready to have a few hours sleep.

The same process in Jordan, going through the border crossing into Israel - collected our passports & did the visa & exit tax stuff for us. It really made that aspect of the trip especially stress free.

I felt completely safe there the whole time. Egypt is really struggling at the moment and we were the only tourists in a lot of places which was incredibly sad - as their economy relies so much on us. Cairo was pretty wild - it's a bit dirty, but that's expected & all part of the 'opening of your eyes' part of the adventure, really. Jordan was very, very friendly. Everyone was excited to see us & made us welcome. Israel was very western - and Tel Aviv in particular just feels like the Gold Coast! The hotel you picked us out there was excellent - very clean and free Wifi into the rooms which was really great.

I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this part of the world to anyone who asks - and would not hesitate to recommend On The Go specifically.

Thanks again for all your help - Michael and I both came away with the consensus that this was truly the trip of a lifetime. Something we will never, ever forget. ”

The most organised and well put together trip I have been on. I would definitely travel with on the go again. ”

Hi On the Go,

I just returned from the Pharaoh's Adventure tour (June 4-9) and had a fabulous time! On the Go really went above and beyond and exceeded all my expectations. Our tour guide, Haytham Youssry was excellent. Extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional, and accommodating. It was the little things that Haytham did that made us feel like valued customers - he purchased us water, ice-cream, and papyrus bookmarks, taught us the tricks on how to avoid the hustlers, and supported us in bargaining with the shop assistants. In addition, the ground support for the tour made everything for us so easy. We were taken to and greeted by an On the Go rep at the train station who also ensured our luggage was secured and taken to our bus, and we were guided through the airport and check in process with no hassle at all.

Thanks On the Go! ”

Hi Cherylyn,

I just wanted to send a email to On the Go to say how amazing my trip was. I have been all over the world and tried only one tour in my life and after that experience, I never wanted to do another tour ever again! However, when my best friend and I decided to go to Egypt, we thought maybe going on a tour would be best, so we booked the King Tutankhamen tour through Flight Centre. To be honest, I didn't know what to expect and had zero expectation, I was just excited that I was finally going to see the Pyramids in person.

On the Go blew me away! You guys were so organized from start to finish and it totally shattered my view of tours, that is for sure. Our tour guide, Alam, was sensational. He was informative yet very approachable and made everyone feel at ease. I really enjoyed that he gave us all the important information and then allowed us ample time to explore. I liked that On the Go was a tour that made you feel like you were a part of a little family yet you could explore on your own as well. It was really well balanced. The Feluccca cruise was fantastic, the crew was amazing and what a great addition, having the motorboat with the toilet! PERFECT!!

I am the type of person to give praise when praise is due and Alam and the entire On the Go team were amazing!! The only sad thing was my complimentary On the Go T-shirt was so big (they ran out of small sizes).....I had to give it to my Dad! Don't worry though, he is wearing it with pride! :)

I have been promoting On the Go to all my friends and my sister and her boyfriend have decided to book their next trip with you guys!

Thank you for making Egypt such a memorable trip. Please pass this on to Alam and rest of the On the Go family!

Kindest Regards, ”

Hi Kelly,

I absolutely loved my holiday and Egypt was fantastic!

On the Go was brilliant!!! The local tour guides are such awesome blokes. Quirky, funny, cheeky and incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The perfect tour to be honest.

Thanks for all your help.
