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:


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

   Jewel of the Nile - 8 days

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...

   Road to Jordan - 16 days

I recently returned from Egypt and your Classic Family adventure. I don't usually make extra comments but I must because it was such a wonderful experience with an EXTRAORDINARY guide. Mohamed El-Maghrabi was not only knowledgeable and passionate about Egypt's history but understood our culture and thinking and therefore helped us see, appreciate and deeply experience Egypt. He was professional, genuinely kind and fun - a combination that made my granddaughter's first international trip such a positive and memorable one. THANKS OnTheGo and Mohamed!

   Classic Family Adventure - 10 Days

My wife, Sonja, and I would just like to express our gratitude towards the on the go team in Egypt for making a package holiday the trip of a lifetime. Maged Michel and Mohamed Zidan's warm and personal service ensured that everything ran like clockwork, the pace of activities were smoothed out and we were able to truly relax and enjoy the ride. 10 days of absolute bliss! Maged deserves special mention for consistently going above and beyond the call of duty. Often; looking after us after hours, ensuring that we learnt how to haggle in the markets and generally acting as a catalyst for good experiences. We feel we have made true friends in Egypt!!

This was a great experience and we will heartily recommend it to our friends.

Hi Natalie, Jane and Diane

Its my first day back in the store today, so I thought I would drop you a quick email to let you know about my trip.

This holiday was one of my favourite trips ever and I would like to thank you all for your help in getting me and my friends there, Jane thanks so much for your patience as I know we mucked you around a lot.

The tour was fantastic and I can't say enough about how great Bishoy Salah was as our tour leader. His knowledge was amazing, and he made each and every temple completely facinating. The trip was completely problem free which is a bit of a rarity on an organised tour and the pace was great with lots of time to chill out on the boat.

I would have absolutely not hesitation in recommending On the Go or the Jewel of the Nile tour so hopefully you will see a big increase in our stores' sales over the next few weeks.

Once again, thanks for your everything!

Myself and my partner Charlie really enjoyed our on the go trip to Egypt and we'd highly recommend it to friends and family. It covered a huge amount of the country was extremely well organised, tightly run, the hotels were of a high standard and everything seemed to run like clockwork.

One thing I forgot to mention in the trip report was our excellent tour guide Sherif Hassan. He was a fantastic guide and transformed a good trip into a great one. He was informative, very entertaining and was genuinely concerned and looked after us all when people fell ill. He is a real asset to on the go team, a truly great guy. He's doing a sterling job for your company.

   King Tutankhamen - 9 days

What a wonderful time we had in Egypt - although tiring, we enjoyed every minute. Abu Simbel, the Nile cruise and Luxor Temple at night were our favourites. Sam our guide was excellent, so passionate about Egypt and his work. Said on the boat was the same. We will certainly recommend on the go. Thank you so much for all your help and Rough Guides for choosing me as a winner.
Once again thank you very much.

   King Tutankhamen - 9 days

I just wanted to email you and thank you all so much for my trip it was unreal!
My flatmate and I had a really great trip and all our needs were thoroughly catered for. The Mena house Oberoi was the best hotel I have ever stayed in and the Nile Cruiser was also a highlight!
