Postcards from Egypt

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

 

Dear Megan,

Just to let you know that I have recently returned from my 'King Tut' holiday in Egypt. I had a fantastic time mainly due to the excellent guide - Sherif, who made sure that all our needs were seen to and that we all had a fun time. The highlight of the trip was the felucca as it gave us the opportunity to get to know each other really well, and Sherif was a perfect host in the evenings providing us with entertainment , fun, and getting us all to join in. I'd also like to mention the airport rep Eunice who immediately made me feel welcome on arrival in Cairo. We bumped into him several times on the tour and he welcomed me as an old friend - even helping me with my cases.

I was very lucky to have won this holiday and will certainly recommend 'on the go' to others.

Hi,
We have just come back from our trip in Egypt (Jewel Of The Nile) - I must say that the tour was amazing and our guide (Walied - "Baby") and the guy that fetched us from the airport (Ahmed) were both great - Walied is an incredible person and he made the tour very special for all of us, he became a friend! The trip was great, the accommodation and the cruise (TI YI) was great - the only down side of the trip was the train, which wasn't really the best...Thank you for an incredible holiday!

Ryan: We are now back in the USA but it has taken us some time to
adjust and get back to work. I just wanted to give very high praise to
your team in Egypt. Gasser, Ezzatt, Echam the driver, and especially
Ahmed Bouty made our trip wonderful!!! These people were extremely
helpful and made our trip fantastic. You should make sure they stay
with your company as I will highly recommend your company in the future
to my traveling friends. I also appreciate your help in scheduling my
trip and was very happy with the results. Thanks Again.

Hi Craig,

My mom and I just returned from Kind Tutankamen tour 13-23 Feb. Sheriff was our tour guide and I just have to mention that he was fantastic. He was very passionate about his country, incredibly knowledgeable about the old and new, and put all of this together with a wonderful sense of humour. I will admit that all the other guides (Saeed accompanied us on the cruise) and representatives we came across along the way were great too.

I must compliment On the Go - I cannot fault any aspect of the tour – be it arrivals/departure, itinerary, accommodation, food, transport. What a pleasure to not have to worry about any of the details.

I will definitely recommend On the Go, and would love to participate in any of your other tours in the future.

Much appreciated, kind regards
Corina

   King Tutankhamen - 9 days

I am just writing to thank you for the amazing trip I have just completed with On the Go.

First and foremost, the organisation, the hotels and transport were first class. Infact, the hotels surpassed the level I was expecting to find in Egypt.

Also, please encourage people who go to Egypt with you to head into Jordan. They are truly missing out on seeing an amazing part of the world.

This was my second trip with On the Go and I would definitely go with you again as you offer great value for money and the organisation and guides are second to none. I would and already do recommend On the Go to anyone who talks to me about my travels.

Again, thank you for such a great trip.

Janet,

My husband and I took the King Ramses tour to Egypt last month. We turned in glowing evaluations, but again wanted to state in another way just how much we appreciated the attentiveness that was given to everyone on the tour. Waleed was especially compassionate and frequently went out of his way to take care of each individual member of a large tour of 32 people. His ability to deal with constant adjustments that were going on in the background to arrange each day and provide a professional and fun atmosphere for the group was truly incredible! I've done a lot of event planning, but have never had to deal with details in a developing country ... where details shift and adjust on a daily basis. The whole team did a phenominal job of providing us with a well rounded and fun experience. It was so much more than we ever expected.

Thanks again,

Dear On the Go

I am writing to thank you for the fabulous trip I have just had in Egypt and Jordan. I did the Road To Jordan and had an absolute blast. Your organisation is perfect, well run, everything went smoothly and I felt safe every step of the way. The meet and greet service at Cairo airpoirt was welcomed, the representative was in a great spot with a very clear sign and introduced himself and explained what we had to do. He was very friendly and gave us an overview of Cairo on the way to the hotel.

Our tour guide Waleed Kaumona I cannot praise highly enough. He is a truly wonderful man with a huge heart and a passion for his country. Every step of the way he was informative, interesting and explained everything in a way we could remember with little stories and wild gesticulating of his arms to emphasis a point. I will forever remember his story of the pregnant man with 2 big bobbies and the one arm one leg big thing. He truly cares about his groups and does everything in his power to ensure we are happy and have a good time. Every step of the way he made sure all the options and bolt ons were fully explained and did his best to sort them out for us. The meeting on day one was informative and when several of our group came down with the tummy terribles he made sure they were looked after and everyone had the correct medication. At the end of our tour in his day off he took us out in Cairo, fed us, watered us then accompained us to the airport even though it was not required of him. Waleed is a real assest to your company and you should be proud to have a man of his calibre working for you.

Our guide in Jordan, Ibraham was a lovely man and really had his work cut out for him with us 3 girls who had been together for 16 days already. He was a wee bit shy of us at first as we were so loud and in his face but he warmed up to us quickly and was interesting and informative and answered all our questions. The trip to Wadi Rum just rocks and Mohamed keeps a lovely clean campsite, having flush toilets was an unexpected bonus!.

All the other people we met along the way such as the local representatives and drivers were very nice and treated us well.

All in all I had a really great time, your organisation is wonderful and I will be recommending On the Go to my friends, as I have done with your ANZAC trips.

   Road to Jordan - 16 days

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.
