Dear Charlie,

Having returned home from Turkey this weekend, I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time I had out there. From the time I arrived at Istanbul airport and was met by the rep, the whole holiday was a tremendous success from start to finish. Yusuf, our guide, was just brilliant and a mine of information, not only about archaeology (his specialist subject), but about everything else connected to Turkey. Sport, politics, the environment, culture etc, he knew it all, and was more than happy to impart it all to the group. Erdogan, our coach driver was without doubt the most polite, courteous, friendly and efficient driver I have ever met. And as for the group, we all seemed to click immediately, and there was a lot of laughter and camaraderie throughout, which made for a thoroughly enjoyable fortnight!

So thank you, once again for organising such a memorable and worthwhile tour. A holiday I will remember for a long time to come. Turkey is a beautiful country with plenty to offer everyone, and is certainly a country I will visit again in the future, particularly if Yusuf is guiding and Erdogan is driving! Now I need to book my next tour!!

To dear Burhan,

Just a note to thank you for all you have done to make this a wonderful trip. It was the first bus tour I had been on and after this experience I would certainly do another.

Your knowledge of Turkish history and the sights we visited is enviable. Your warm and friendly nature were most appreciated.

It was so nice to have you taking care of the details so that we could just enjoy all that Turkey has to offer. 'On The Go' are lucky to have someone with your knowledge, skills and passion. I have been fortunate to have their experience under your guidance. It has been a very memorable trip.

Dear Burhan,

Thank you for making my first trip to Turkey memorable in so many ways. Your vast knowledge of all things 'Turkey' and the engaging way you make your stories come alive is captivating. And your warmth and friendly demeanour strikes just just the right balance. I have loved this trip and will always remember my time in Turkey with much fondness and a smile.

Mr Denny was excellent. He worked really hard and helped us find good vegetarian meals at lunch each day - not easy in Korea (we don't eat fish either).

Good day,
I would like to thank On The Go Tours for the amazing experience in Egypt on the King Ramses tour leaving on the 19 April 2014.
This was in fact thanks to the most amazing, fantastic and wonderful tour guide ever, Haytham. It was thanks to him that my wife and I had an unforgettable experience and probably the best holiday of our lives.
He made us feel so welcome, befriended us without even knowing us and created an amazing atmosphere within our group.
If it was not for Haytham, I doubt that our experience would have been so amazing. Egypt is such a magical place but made more so by the treatment that we received from our guide Haytham. He has helped us develop a love for the country and definitely consider utilizing On the Go Tours again in the near future.
Thank you so much for allocating Haytham to our group :)

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to email you guys to say HUGE thank you to an amazing tour that we had to Egypt! We are already on your website planning and counting pennies to see if Turkey or Vietnam will be our next tour with you guys. The service was really great - job well done! Seeing that this was our first overseas trip, we were so nervous but with On the Go representatives at the airport to assist, at the hotels to assist, made it soo much easier and we could just sit back and enjoy every moment. Told family about how great the service was and that we will use On the Go again!

Huge thank you to Corina at Flight Centre for all her patients with us......all the questions we asked.....i thought this poor chick will tell us to go somewhere els. Thanks Carina! Cant wait to hear all your stories about Vietnam.....give us some guidance of what to do and no to do when we go.....hahaha!

To Haytham in Egypt.....we spoke about it on our way back.....that part of the trip being so amazing was his presence and huge personality!! He spoiled everyone on the trip......when it was ice cream would wait for you on the bus.......there were 2 birthdays in our group....when we were at certain places.....there was the birthday cake for them.

For myself and my husband.....our 1 year wedding anniversary on this trip......he organized at the Nubian restaurant a anniversary cake and a small gift to me....this is priceless.....he didnt have to do it but his heart is huge and it is one of the 3000 photo's that we will definately print to put on our wall!!

His patience level with a very difficult customer that was part of our group.....we all felt sorry for Haytham......she was not an easy person but he handeled her with respect and buckets full of patience. If it was me, would have thrown her overboard loooooong ago! Go Haytham!!

The south african group are planning a special box of south african goodies to post to him......just to say thank you for all the trouble, the effort and love he showed us South Africans. He knew a bit of Afrikaans language which was special for us.....that he could share as a personal joke between the south africans during our trip.

We had a bit of the other tour representatives when we went to Alamein and the churches, when we did the bolt on's.......they were great but Haytham made the tour by giving something of himself. The other guys were reserved and professional....nothing wrong with that at all. But Haytham is as special as the pyramids and the Nile......and do hope that he will stay with your company for many years to come just so that more people can experience his vibrant personality!!

To Alberto who helped to organize more Hibbuscis leaves for me to take back home and his funny jokes.....big hugs and take you!! To Ashraf, our driver, who couldnt speak much english but just wanted to buy us stuff......first it was warm tea and then cane juice....shame he just wanted to give us stuff! Very special guy! Huge thank you to them too!!

From a very sad South African who is now back home......wishing we were still in Egypt. Thank you to everyone for an awesome 1 year anniversary trip!

To Whom It May Concern,

I have recently come back from one of your tours (El Alamein & Ancient Egypt) and felt that I had to write to say what a wonderful experience it was.

Not only was the tour itself well selected, visiting many of the historical and cultural highlights that gives Egypt its well deserved reputation as a must on any travel list, but the logistics and organisation were extremely well handled: from the first booking, to arriving at Cairo, all the way through the tour to the flight home again, everything was well handled and I could just relax and enjoy the holiday. Even the group itself were wonderful; everyone getting on well together to create a wonderful atmosphere and made the whole holiday an unforgettable experience.

Most importantly the guide, Haytham Youssry, was absolutely brilliant. He was able to use his experience and knowledge of Egypt to pass on interesting facts, making them come alive as well as finding that often difficult balance between the informative and the entertaining - the whole group were hooked on his every word (from the reign of Ramses II to the myths and legends of Ancient Egypt to the recommendations for a restaurant for that night's dinner). In the hotel in Aswan, I had problems with a room key and he was able to sort it out quickly and efficiently with the reception so that it was soon resolved. He looked after the whole group (and showed infinite patience with one member of the group who was difficult at times), making sure that we were okay the whole time and that we were enjoying ourselves and almost felt like a friend on our travels. (Whilst I'm sure that you have a number of similarly excellent guides, I genuinely don't think that the tour would have been quite the same with anybody else!)

In short, thank you once again for a wonderful holiday (dare I say one of the best holidays I have been on). I shall certainly recommend to my friends and family to try a tour with you, and hope to go on another of your tours in the future.
