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 Ryan,
I want to thank you for your help with organizing our xmas escape to Egypt. It was a great learning experience, exceptional tour guides and good value for money! I would recommend Classic King Tut to everyone who doesn't want to spend christmas on their own in rainy, miserable England.
Job well done!

Dear Ryan,

Happy New Year! I expect you are in Dahab as I write this but I just wanted
to write to thank you and the on-the-go team. We did complete the feedback
forms but we still feel we want to say a personal thank you.

We had the holiday of a lifetime exploring and learning about Egypt and
Jordan and were very impressed with the organisation by your team! Keith and
I are seasoned travelers and have never gone on an organised tour before and
had certain misgivings about doing so... However, we chose to book with you
because we felt the need for a real break and for once to let someone else
deal with all the hassle of buying tickets etc.

We felt that your Classic tour was expertly organised and very well thought
out - it was a joy and a real luxury to enjoy time as a family without all
the hassle!

In particular we wanted to say an extra special thank you to
1) Mohammed, our guide for the Classic family tour in Egypt. A very lovely
guy who was so accommodating and sensitively managed the three families - he
was so good with the children too.
2) Ahmed, our guide in Dahab. We were so impressed at the way Ahmed went out
of his way to sort things out and find us sympathetic accommodation. We
really appreciated this and we cannot thank you all enough for doing this.

Generally all your staff were so pleasant, helpful and kind.

Overall it was a fantastic trip and we would heartily recommend On
the Go - we wish you all the very best,

Hi Ryan,
The holiday was really amazing! I would recommend On the Go Tours to anyone and everyone. All the transfers and travel arrangements were on time and the accomodation was very nice.

I must say, 'Said' was our Tour leader and he was the best, we had so much fun with him and he also had so much information to give and was also willing to go the extra mile. You truly have an asset representing your company in the most professional way.

Thank you again for all your assistance and have a wonderful holiday season,

Kind Regards

Hi Charlie,

I've just finished my Classic Road to Jordan tour which was AMAZING!!! I had the best time, the tour guides were fantastic and everything was well taken care of. It was the perfect way to finish off 2008 and begin 2009 but I'm now suffering from post-holiday depression so I need to book my next trip quick!

Our trip was absolutely WONDERFUL!!

Honestly, I got a little nervous as the plane approached Cairo since all our
arrangements had been via the internet and emails, other than the one or two
quick phone calls. I was trusting that On the Go Tours was not a "shady"

My fears were allayed when Mena showed up at our arrival gate with his "On
the Go Tours" sign held high!! He was so helpful....getting our visas at the airport....going through immigration....going through customs....and getting us to our hotel for the night. (we had been flying about 14 hours and were tired).

We met Mohamed Alam the next morning. Our first day was fine, but I think
it took Mohamed most of that day to realize that we were the kind of tourist
who like to take their time looking at details at all the sites....not the
kind who rush through everything. By the second day, everything went fine.
I, honestly, didn't expect the same guide the entire trip; I assumed we
might have a different guide at each part of the trip. Mohamed took care of
EVERYTHING for us....admission tickets, suggestions for meals, train
tickets, showed us to our train cabins.... We all got misty eyed on the
last day when we had to say good bye; we felt like he was a part of our
family after just a few days.

We usually plan and organize our own trips, and so, we have never felt so
pampered in all our lives...

The Zayed Hotel in Cairo was small and thus quaint. We were taken care of
well there. The Pyramid Isis in Luxor was absolutely gorgeous and luxurious for our tastes...and we truly enjoyed it.

I cannot say enough good things about you and all the staff members at On
the Go Tours. You have my permission to use any or part of these comments
on your website as "testimonials" about your services. I will also be
posting my comments to " so others can feel comfortable using your services. When we plan a trip elsewhere that your company has contacts, you will be our first company to contact.

By the way, when we arrived home, we had a brochure in our mail from
National Geographic for a very similar trip to Egypt....their cost was over
$6000 per person!! That did include 3 meals most days...but NO
international airfare. We felt so blessed to have had such a wonderful trip
for such an affordable price compared to National Geographic!

Thanks so much!!

   Egypt Tailormade Tours

We recently did the Jewel of the Nile tour in Egypt. It was one of the best
travel experiences we have had! We are a young couple, and were worried the
group would be full of mature people, but it was a perfect mix of old and

Our tour leader 'Big Mo' was really informative and made it a fun and highly
enjoyable experience. Thanks On The Go! We will defiantly return for another

Hi Janet,

When we arrived in Cairo we immediately identified Ahmed, the airport representative and he took us through customs in a light flash. Out in the streets of Cairo we had a great time driving towards our hotel and the rep, Mohammed nr 1, was amazing at telling us what to do and where to go. The hotels were some of the best I have seen in the world! And the hotel staff carried us on their hands. The additional options we did before the tour started was great at keeping us busy in Crazy Cairo.

When we started our tour we were spoilt with the BEST EVER TOUR GUIDE, Big Mo , you are a legend! We had such a good time with him. He informed us of all the pro's and con's such as how much to pay for certain things and what not to miss out on. He also provided us with in-flight entertainment on the train from Cairo to Aswan by recording someone snoring and playing it back when she woke up.

His knowledge on Egyptology was excellent!

The Felucca cruise was one of the highlights, the captains and Fuzzy made us the best food and we had an all round good time on the Nile . Big Mo's soccer event in the desert was unforgettable - of course his team won 5-2 and I was proud to be his goal keeper!

When we had to leave him behind in Luxor for our next part of the trip, he issued us all with certificates graduating from his University together with a scarab. He wanted to keep mine as I yelled and ran around in the temple of Luxor thinking bats were chasing me, but I graduated eventually. Aw, Big Mo , you are a legend amongst legends! Even if you pointed and laughed at me more than I deserved!

Leaving one great legend behind, we met up with Mostafa. My favourite Egyptian!! Dahab-time with Mostafa! He made sure we had great times all round with the best food and best entertainment one can find in Dahab. Sea food can't get any better than that! His excitement to summit Mount Sinai made that long walk worth it.

Parting with Mostafa, we met up with Simone, who was as awesome as the rest. She was so much fun and really clicked well with the Russians. . Setting foot in Jordan we met Abe aka Ibrahim. Somewhat quiet but all he needed was the Bedouin feast in the Wadi Rum to show how much fun he could be. Jordan was so grand. The dead sea bobbing was a dream come true and I would recommend that to anyone.

Thank you Nash for taking us back to Cairo from Taba in a warm bus. Thank you for the drivers of the excellent coaches, the drivers of the airport shuttles and the Airport representatives who made sure we left Cairo happy. Thank you Mohammed nr 2 for helping me get on the plane after some visa problems.

Quoting Big-Mo while raising his flag: "On The Go - let's go!" I will go with On The Go from this day on...
