I just wanted to say a huge thank you for calling your office in Jordan yesterday and for organising for my daughter, Honor, to go to the hospital. She was whisked off as soon as she arrived in Jordan which was wonderful as she was in a lot of pain and the infection seemed to be spreading up her leg. Thankfully they gave her an injection which seems to have had a very quick result and she says that her foot is much better today – I think she is off for another injection in Petra this evening.
I was so impressed by you and your company’s quick response and for getting her the medical attention she needed so she could enjoy the rest of her trip. A big thank you!
With best wishes

Hi Sarah. In between holidays at the moment (isn't life a bore :-). Had an absolutely wonderful and exhilarating time in Israel and the trip went beyond my expectations. The guide, Marc, was brilliant and extremely knowledgeable, and the small group of 14 got on famously, despite the varying age group (20 - 86) and nationalities. We were very lucky indeed. All in all though a most memorable trip, and I would definitely travel with On The Go Tours on a future occasion. ”
To whom it may concern,
I have just returned from the Pyramids, Petra and Promised Land tour with On The Go and wanted to let you know that I had an amazing experience! The part which stood out most for me was the Egypt section of the tour with MoMo. It was fun, well organised and very informative.
I have been interested in Ancient Egypt since I was a small girl, so to experience Egypt with someone as qualified and so obviously passionate about his job as MoMo made this the best vacation I have taken to date. I left Egypt loving the country more than I had before arriving, with the ability to recognise for myself styles of Ancient Egyptian art, Pharonic vs Greek/Roman temples and able to identify a plethora of different Pharaohs and Gods.
MoMo was punctual and always happy to answer questions. He immediately negated any concerns about safety within the group and was always conscious of our individual locations at the sights. I was particularly impressed one morning on the way to Abu Simbel (which I have wanted to see since I was 7 years old!) when our bus broke down. After a two hour wait, he decided that instead of cutting time short at the sight, that he would organise for us to go the next day instead (despite meaning he would have to get up at 3am again!). This was the highlight of the tour for me!
I want to say a big thank you to MoMo for helping me fulfil a lifelong dream and giving me an experience I will never forget! ”
I just want to thank you for all your help and to let you know we had a fantastic time on the tour. The group size was just perfect and even though we were the oldest couple the young ones were able to keep up with us. Sharif was an excellent tour guide and extremely knowledgeable and he seem to know everyone and was able to get us into almost every site ahead of long lines. The weather was also just perfect, no rain. ”
I will most definitely be recommending the guide and On the Go Tours to my family and friends... Birte Edwards is an awesome lady. I can tell she really enjoys and proud to teach and share the rich history of her country. She knows this history inside out. Also a lovely person to be our tour guide. How lucky we are to have her... ”
Everything went off pretty much perfectly. On The Go was such a great choice. They were on the ball, completely professional and really experts in travelling through Egypt, Jordan and Israel.
The guides, particularly our Egypt guide, were incredible. But I think the best bit was that they met us at the airport in Cairo inside the immigration area (even though it was 2.30am) and filled out all our paperwork, took us through immigration & got our bags for us and were at our hotel within an hour getting ready to have a few hours sleep.
The same process in Jordan, going through the border crossing into Israel - collected our passports & did the visa & exit tax stuff for us. It really made that aspect of the trip especially stress free.
I felt completely safe there the whole time. Egypt is really struggling at the moment and we were the only tourists in a lot of places which was incredibly sad - as their economy relies so much on us. Cairo was pretty wild - it's a bit dirty, but that's expected & all part of the 'opening of your eyes' part of the adventure, really. Jordan was very, very friendly. Everyone was excited to see us & made us welcome. Israel was very western - and Tel Aviv in particular just feels like the Gold Coast! The hotel you picked us out there was excellent - very clean and free Wifi into the rooms which was really great.
I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this part of the world to anyone who asks - and would not hesitate to recommend On The Go specifically.
Thanks again for all your help - Michael and I both came away with the consensus that this was truly the trip of a lifetime. Something we will never, ever forget. ”
Just to let you know that I have had another fantastic holiday with On the go.
My mum and I had such a great time with Shimon our own private guide! He was so full of energy and enthusiasm and had a great sense of humour! His knowledge of the history, the sights and religions of Israel was extensive and we enjoyed listening to his stories and talking to him about life in Israel. Shimon looked after us really well and definitely did over and above his job particularly as he was our driver as well! He made sure that we were well looked after. Please pass on our thanks.
I particularly enjoyed the first sight of the Dome of the Rock and the serenity of the Garden of Gethsemane. The sights around the Sea of Galilee were very interesting and evocative, contrasting with the beach life and bustle of Tel Aviv. The whole tour was fantastic!
Thanks again! ”
The tour guides Paul and Ezra were extremely knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting.
The knowledge they imparted have made a huge impact on our lives. I will highly recommend this tour to our friends and family and will advise an extra free day in the Old City to see the sites at leisure. Paul made it even more meaningful by having the sculptures read aloud by fellow tour members at various sites. I will never forget this experience. Thank you Paul & Ezra & on the go tours! ”
