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.

Hi Ashley,

My wife and I have done over ten tours now with various companies and would have to say that On The Go ranks very high on our list of preferred operators, your company seems to know how to cover all the little details some others leave out. Our tour manager in China (Stephanie) we could not fault, she thought of everything, kept us all together like sticky rice in cities of over 20 Million people and still had time to have fun with us. At times she went above and beyond what would be expected of a tour manager. If On The Go has excellence awards for your managers we would like to nominate Stephanie as a candidate.
All the local people you use for transfers, drivers and guides were all so prompt it was scarey. As seasoned travelers we really appreciate the fine detail that On The Go puts into not only your tours but also pre and post tour transfers and accommodation.
Everything went like clockwork, which made for a fantastic trip.

Would also like to mention that we did the 3 day Nanjing Bolt on.
We cannot understand why On The Go is no longer advertising this as a Bolt On option, what a fascinating city with so much history, in particular the Nanjing Massacre Museum. Very confronting but a must see in Nanjing. Our local guide ( Kai ) was brilliant, he was informative without being overbearing with information. We can highly recommend doing this Bolt On and are so glad we did it, it has left us with a lasting memory of our trip to China.

Thank you On The Go.

Hi Phil

I had an amazing time not least because the whole planning of the trip & the attitude of the staff was exceptional. Our trip leader Mat was such a knowledgeable guy on so many aspects of the trip & very professional with everything & everyone. Nothing seemed to phase him!! There were so many highlights on the trip but my whole Victoria Falls experience including the elephant back safari & walking with lions experiences that I did, the Chobe River cruise & our time in the Delta (in spite of the most basic hole in the ground toilet facilities!!) are all top of the the list. In fact I think that pretty much covers everything I did on the tour. I also met a wonderful group of people from many different countries - Spain, USA, Germany & Columbia. The fact that I don't speak any other language except English did not create any problems with any aspect of the trip. I would have no hesitation in recommending both On the Go Tours for travel experiences.

Also many thanks to you & your colleagues for all the assistance in making my trip so memorable.

Hi Phil,

I would like to let you know, that my childhood friend Katalin and myself had a most wonderful vacation on our sailing trip. Right from the start at boarding time to the last minute of our departure in Split we been pleased with everything. We found the sailing boat (Lopar) most comfortable, clean. The staff very attentive, professional, plus fun. Meals elegantly served and good variety of dishes cooked on the boat. Since we lucked out with fantastic warm weather, both of us loved the many swimming stops at beautiful bays. Our island visits were remarkable interesting at every stop as we loved all of the historical towns and natural beauties of the Mediterranean.

Hopefully I will have some other trips with your company in the future and I would definitely recommend you to anyone.

Hello Ryan,

I did the Yin and Yangtze tour, joining from and returning to Hong Kong, where I visited a son on secondment from London. The first thing to mention is that I came as a single traveller, but I need have had no worries. The group comprised both younger and older travellers from several different countries, including half a dozen other solo members, and we all mingled, collaborated and supported each other brilliantly, to an extent that I have not experienced on previous holidays. This aspect made a great holiday even better - so thank you, guys; you know who you are!
Next, I have to say that the organisation and management of the tour were outstanding; everything just clicked, and any minor problems were quickly resolved. Special thanks to our principal tour manager, Stephanie, who was just great. Now and then one did get the feeling that things were somewhat regulated, prescribed or circumscribed to conform to the wishes and notions of the host nation, but given where we were that was perhaps hardly surprising and it did not detract from the enjoyment. There was of course relatively little contact with "ordinary people"; those Chinese with whom we did have contact, in hotels, restaurants, tourist venues, taxis and trains etc, were, I thought, efficient and business-like rather than particularly friendly or personable. Perhaps they have yet to learn to relax in the company of foreigners!
The tour itself, the places we visited and the sights we saw, exceeded expectations. Whether one was in a city, at a famous site/sight or just in the street, on the Yangtze cruise (or an astonishing "peapod" boat!), in a garden or museum, at the Great Wall, on a train or among soaring new skyscrapers and bridges, there was variety aplenty, much to admire and wonder at, so much that was unique, historic, or just different from anything experienced before.
Our accommodations varied, from fair to rather good, but were generally comfortable and spotless; and the food throughout was varied, plentiful and enjoyable. At the end, though, in Shanghai, my remaining companions and I found our way to the French quarter. There we happened upon the 'Boxing Cat Brewery', serving real ales, cocktails and an international variety of food, which, I confess, by that stage came as a welcome change! With a pool table and dart-board for amusement, it felt just like "home". But then Shanghai is a very cosmopolitan city, evidently trying hard to be like Hong Kong, and very much part of modern China.
Overall, this trip really was "on-the-go" and, partly because of a heavy cold that developed in the last few days, I came home exhausted. But I wouldn't have missed any of it. Everyone should go! Thank you, to all in my group and to everyone at On the Go Tours.

Hello Sarah,

I just returned from the Turkey Unplugged tour.
This was an incredible journey for me! Turkey is truly a wondrous and vast country. After an initial bad encounter with an unscrupulous taxi driver, I had a great adventure. Our guide, Mehmet was terrific. He was knowledgeable, patient and kind. He introduced us to many wonderful hidden gems.

The climb to Pergamum was exhausting, but worth it...not just for me at 68, but for much younger adventurers in our group. We all very much enjoyed our guides commentary as we went through the ancient acropolis. All of the sites were interesting, I think I can still feel a few head bumps from the underground city in Cappadocia, but again, very worthwhile seeing if a bit uncomfy on the back for awhile.

I liked the fact that just about everything was included except for the balloon ride.

I would definitely travel with On the Go again.

Our tour guide was excellent. He went out of his way to help us and make sure that everyone was happy at all times. It really was an excellent tour. I hope that if I travel with On the go again, it will be just as good. Thank you for a fantastic holiday!

Dear Penny

I just want to say how much we enjoyed our trip to Thailand. We were very impressed with On The Go Tours, their organizational skills, the tour guides and drivers, and the excellent hotels.

Overall, there was plenty of variety and free time. We have been on tours with several other tour companies over the last twenty years of travelling, but this was the best. We will certainly consider going on another On the Go Tour and would not hesitate recommending them to friends and family.
