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:


Just back from Egypt and the Family Adventure Classic. We had the most wonderful time and our 14-year-old son said it was one of the best holidays of his life. We think he's right – only 9 days long but a lifetime of memories!

Apart from the mind-blowing history, we all loved the visit to the Nubian village school. The home-cooked lunch afterwards was one of the best meals of the holiday – seriously delicious. Perfectly balanced programme for all ages and the guide (Mohammad el Maghrabi aka Super-Mo) whom the children worshipped.

Well done everyone and the most enormous thank you.

   Classic Family Adventure - 10 Days


Having recently returned from a trip to Egypt I wanted to say thank you to all the staff at On The Go Tours. Janet organised everything extremely well at the London End and the staff in Egypt were all exceptional. Our guides Mohammed Alam(Cairo) and Aamer Ibrahim(Aswan/Luxor) were great. As Aamer
accompinied us on our cruise we got to know him extremely well and found his storytelling really brought the Tombs and Temples to life. The fact we had him just to ourselves was fantastic as gave us the opportunity to ask many questions. We met many of your reps, some just for a pick up or drop off and others more regularly I would like to praise Mohammed in Cairo who couldn`t
have been more helpful and when he managed to get us in our rooms early after the overnight train journey I could have kissed him. We had a day to kill in Cairo and with very short notice he managed to arrange for our regular driver(ishman) to take us shopping, nothing was too much bother.
The only thing I would have changed on hindsight was to fly to Aswan rather than take the train and I would have had my last day in Luxor rather than Cairo. All in all a great experience.

I recently returned from Egypt taking the Dunes and Tombs tour. I just wanted to say I had a wonderful time. Your guides were wonderful and I sure got full value for the money spent. I have travelled with other adventure tour companies to other countries and were pleased with all of them however this trip seemed a little more pleasurable made partly by the guides and the Egyptian people who worked in the hospitality industry. If you ever need a recommendation do not hesitate to send them to me.

Thanks for the wonderful experience in Egypt.

Hi Janet,

Dave & I enjoyed our tour tremendously and were very impressed with the friendliness, sense of humor and competance of all your guides. All segments of the tour went off exremely well and were well organized. The only negative was a 2.5 hr late train from Cairo which is definitely not your responsibility.
Thanks for all your help - it was truly a wonderful experience!

   Dunes and Tombs - 18 days

We're just back from our trip which was terrific. We were quite surprised at the level of attention we received from the On the Go representatives. From the moment we landed until we left, we were taken care of, treated with great courtesy and everything we needed provided. Special mention should be made of our tour guides, Romany in Cairo and Aamir for the rest of the trip.

It was so well orgainsed, nothing was ever too much trouble, and it was reasonably priced. Please pass on my special thanks to Sheriff Hassan, Samir, Mohammed Yunis, Mostafa el-sharif, Nash and Hany in Luxor and Ahmed Fahim in Dahab! They were all wonderful and friendly, without their care my trip may not have been so good. Also I would like to tell you how impressed I was with your dive centre in Dahab, they were so friendly, I had a ball diving, and I think its safe to say that Dahab has captured my heart.

Thanks for the great memories

   King Ramses - 14 days

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous trip to Egypt. You certainly live up to your name - we've never had a more action packed holiday. Mark - my partner - celebrated his 40th birthday in Cairo and it's an occasion he'll never forget. What a city!

We were looked after extremely well - the reps were fantastic - friendly, punctual, flexible and very enthusiastic. The guides were superb and we were very lucky to be the only two people on the Jewel of the Nile tour so we had their undivided attention. We'll never forget having breakfast on the first morning of the trip at the wonderful Mena House. It took us a few minutes to realise that the object filling the window was the Great Pyramid. The Nile cruiser was brilliant and we're in total agreement with the Agha Khan that Aswan is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The guide organised a visit to the botanic gardens there at no extra cost and it was an afternoon never to be forgotten.

It was a fantastic experience and we'll be back for more in the not too distant future. We're considering India next! Thank you for a truly remarkable holiday.

   Jewel of the Nile - 8 days

Dear Natalie,

Just a note to thank you for the wonderful trip you organised for us. Grant and I (along with John and Pauline) had the most amazing time. Egypt has been my dream for as long as I can remember, and this trip exceeded my hopes and expectations!!!

Everything went like clockwork, that attention to detail by all those involved in our stay was very impressive. We were greeted at all major towns by representatives of the company, who made sure that all was booked, going to plan, and that we were happy with what we were getting.

On meeting our guide, he told us that he intended to give us an Egyptian experience, and we would do far more than the itinerary listed. And he was true to his word. We saw and experienced some wonderful things, and have fantastic memories which we will enjoy for a long time.

For future trips (if the budget allows any more overseas) - we will certainly be checking out the On the Go site before any other.
