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:



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.

   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!

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
