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

 

Excellent tour guide. Tatiana was most helpful, informative and accommodating. Wonderful experience.

Dear Charlie,

Here's a short resume' of my most exciting and enjoyable tour to St. Petersburg and Moscow, I chose the Russian Revolution package.

My tour was a huge success, so much so, that I am contemplating another one, in the not too distant future. Your professional and efficient managing of the necessary details of the tour deserves a special mention. Top marks to you. You acquitted yourself of your task with applause.

I cannot praise On the Go Tours enough for ensuring that my airport transfer and hotel booking in St Petersburg were conducted without a hitch. Arriving in St Petersburg at a late hour, I was on tender hooks - for fear that I would not be met at the airport, my gears were soon dispelled when the driver waited with a clearly marked "on the go" sign. This driver must be commended for going out of his way to make me feel welcome. Despite the utterly restraining language barrier, he went the extra mile to show me the sights of St Petersburg en route to the hotel. This welcome was further enhanced, when Tatiana, our guide, made a timeous call, whilst I was in the car, to assure me and welcome me. What more could I ask for?

The tour itself was extremely well planned and conducted - Tatiana, I hasten to add, is a guide - par excellence! Her knowledge command of the English language overwhelmed me, so was her meticulous planning and attention to detail, nothing was left to chance.

The choice of hotels cannot be faulted. We were a small group which soon gelled. Thank you On the Go for putting me up with a Mike, my room mate. What a splendid genuine and sincere guy he is.
Males breakfast, very very filling - offering an excellent choice.
Special mention must be made too, our very own enjoyable and entertaining, albeit short stop in Novgorod. I enjoyed it so much putting my braaing skills to good use!

Although I have a comprehensive knowledge of Russian culture, history and architecture, nothing could prepare me for the exquisite beauty and artistert which I held when I visited the Heritage, Peterhof and those myriads of cathedrals! I was and still am, awe struck when I recount my visits.

So to you, and the On the Go team I offer my humble thanks and praises.

Greetings and Salutations

Dear On the Go,

I wanted to share some feedback from my the Go "Siege of Leningrad" tour that I went on earlier this year.
The tour, that included 4 days in Moscow and 4 days in St Petersburg, was the best tour I have ever been on. Not only is Russia a spectacular country, with an amazing history, sensational food and beautiful people, our tour guides Katya and her associate Natasha were absolutely fantastic!! They were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and it made our holiday all the more enjoyable. I would like to specially mention the effort they put in to assisting us when our luggage didn't make our flight transfer to Russia and then the difficulty we had with customs when our luggage did arrive. They never hesitated to make calls for us, organize extra trips out to the airport to collect our luggage and always with a smile and a comforting word.
I have said it before, and I will say it again, Katya and Natasha were the best tours guides I have had the experience of touring with. They really catered to our areas of interest, were super friendly and a pleasure to spend time with. In the end it was sad to say goodbye to them and to a country we well and truly fell in love with.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend On The Go to my friends and family! And we will a certainly be going on other tours in the future.

Natalya and Elena were fantastic guides - very friendly and informative! The pace of the tour was very relaxed and I would definitely recommend it.

Tatiana was amazing and knowledgeable about everything. She had an answer for every question, be it where to eat, places to see, or about the history of anything on the tour. She was happy to go out of her way to make the tour everything we wanted it to be. She is a great asset to On The Go Tours.

I cannot speak highly about my experience. The country is beautiful, the people were lovely, the history is interesting and our guides Katya + Natasha were above and beyond the call of duty to help us with lost luggage, extra information and facilitating extra visits whenever possible. They are both a credit to the company and the country.
