An on the go group in India

Postcards from India

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

 

I cannot explain the impeccable manner of our tour guide - Yousef - always willing to make sure everything was running smoothly.
His knowledge of India should be commended.
Thank you very much, it was a priviledge to be on this tour.

   Taj and Raj - 11 Days

I felt overwhelmed by the sights & information and the lenght of touring days at times. Although to get it all in was necessary.
Amazing combination of experiences enhanced by the ability of Yousef to tell stories and answer all questions.
Thank you for his patience and sense of humour.

   Golden Triangle & Goa - 14 Days

Overall I found the tour to be superb. As specified the hotels in general were excellent, the trips and guides were as a rule knowledgeable, informative and enjoyable and the transport was comfortable, safe and efficient. I feel that I must give special attention to the tour leader - Satendra. From the outset of the tour he extended a warm welcome which continued throughout his time with us. He proved to be courteous, knowledgeable, warm, funny, understanding and extremely helpful to all those on the tour.
I would highly recommend India as an interesting destination and On the Go as a well organized company. Thank you!

   Golden Triangle & Goa - 14 Days

I eventually returned from my two week trip to India. I just wanted to let you all know that I was absolutely blown away with the country and the people. I was also extremely impressed with the organisation of On the Go. In particular I would single out Yusuf, our tour leader for the first week. He was always courteous and charming, and his knowledge was exceptional. You have a gem there! The second week, I travelled with my friend, and we had a fabulous time. Our driver was Bharat (spelling???) who was fantastic. Totally reliable and an extremely good careful driver. Our subsequent tour guides were ok, but of course we had been spoilt by Yusuf.

The hotels were varied - some exceptionally beautiful, and some a little disappointing. Singh Sons was very ordinary although I do understand the reason for choosing it. However our hotel in Udaipur was also a let down and I think perhaps you ought to look at changing that.

I would definitely recommend your company to others, and, should the opportunity arise, would not hesitate to travel with you again.

Thank you

   Passage to India - 15 days

Good morning Mark

Just wanted to let you know that Jane and I had an absolutely brilliant time on our trip, returning home on Saturday.

The whole thing ran without a hitch. During the first week we were with 12 other travellers with the same Guide (JUSUF) the hotel in Delhi left a little to be desired! Apparently anything any good is expensive but please look into alternatives. The Tuctuc drivers around there are pretty sharp and they take you all round the houses to get back to a restaurant just 80 metres away. However,as we continued there was much improvement in the hotels, the bus was comfortable and Jusuf was absolutely great. Vastly knowledgeable and proficient.

During the second week are trip was contracted out to TravelInn. The driver supplied, Bharat, was firstly a very good driver, but also 100% reliable, a great time keeper, always there when we wanted him and considerate. He drove us for over 1500 km and we at no time felt vulnerable. We felt like royalty sometimes turning up at the better hotels. He always greeted us with a smile and we hope we tipped him sufficiently!! The car was good quality (almost new). Whenever we arrived in a new town there was always a representative there to meet us, if not immediately then they came to find us on the hotel site somewhere. Then arrangements made for a pick up time the next day or later on the same day as appropriate.

The quality of the guides there after was always very good.

Just remains to say that we will not hesitate to use On The Go again in the future if the opportunity presents itself.

With many thanks

Janet
Wanted to thank you (well your company) for a super trip to India. I was apprehensive I have to say as I had never heard of your company and nor had anyone else I spoke to before I booked. I was able to have a very direct comparison between two companies because, as you know, I did a trip with another company first and then yours. The contrast between the two was significant. I learned more about India, its customs, its culture, its people, its way of life, its structures, its quirks etc in three days with Satendra than in just over two week on the other trip. Yes I saw some fantastic sights on the other trip but came away thinking what on earth I gleened about India itself.

We had a fantastic little group in the main and I know that was a bonus and whilst we all got on, the trip was made by the tour leader and of course his support crew, drivers, meeters and greeters, helpers. They were all great.

Satendra gave us so many precious moments. There were great sites and for me, even more spectacular and awesome than I anticipated and experiences too numerous to mention and quite unexpected, joining in wedding celebrations in Jaipur, into restaurant kitchens, the bathing at full moon in Orchha, the game drive to Panna, the village walks etc etc. He went out of his way to find out what was going on and this was often well beyond what one would normally expect e.g. organising for two of us (mad as we were) to go to see the sun rise over the Taj. He was also great when it came to food, helping out those of us who were not keen on hot spicy and those who wanted spice and hot and the ones in between. He also had such a wicked sense of humour and most of us really appreciated it and how patient he was when people were indecisive or needed help and support.

Satendra was enthusiastic and very caring and really added that 'wow' factor, something which is hard to describe but comes from someone who is not only passionate about their country but also their job and take a great pride in sharing knowledge etc with others. Rare and so seldom found in many leaders.

I know that a small group is often easier to manage more personally than a larger one, but he was such a professional I am sure than whatever the group they would all feel that had equal value. It is a true professional who can make each member of the group feel they got something extra and not to feel they are just one of a number.

A great big thank you. I am just wondering where in India my next trip will take me and had I not travelled with you, I am not sure I would be going back.

   Highway to Himalayas - 18 Days

This was a dream trip for a long time and lived up to expectations. A lot was packed into the tour but the organisation and support made it all run so smoothly. I wish we could do a rerun now!!!
Yusef is a real ambassador for India and on the go. He is courteous, helpful friendly - everything a perfect tour guide should be - thanks!!
