The whole tour was very well organized. Guides were exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, easy to get along with and made sure we were happy with everything.

Hi Kate,

I just wanted to let you know how amazing our recent trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and Singapore was. It was perfect for what we wanted and allowed us to see a lot in a short time. In fact, it was beyond our expectations.

I particularly wanted to let you know about the 'Very Vietnam' tour which we did with On the Go Tours. This tour allowed us to travel from the North to the South of Vietnam in 10 days and showed us the differences between the areas. Whoever put this tour together should be praised because it really was the right amount of time in each place and incorporated the most amazing sights.

In addition, I would like to let you know about our tour guide Mr Kien Nguyen. On our welcome meeting he asked the 19 people in our tour what we wanted to gain fro this trip. Not only did he deliver on this, but he went above and beyond to truly make this a memorable trip for us all; not an easy thing to do when he had an age range of 19-68 years old. He spoke to us about any topic we were interested in, such as weddings, education, life styles, farming and even traditional funeral arrangements, which allowed us a greater insight into life in Vietnam. Moreover, in the evenings, when he wasn't paid to be with us, he would ask if we wanted to go with him to places to eat etc. Most of us were interested and the group went to some brilliant places, which we would never have found without Kien. This was particularly helpful to me as I have food allergies and so I had my own interpreter on hand!

I do not know what On the Go do to promote etc their guides, but Kien was an excellent representative and ambassador for the company and I would be grateful if you could forward my praise of him onto the company. If this is the calibre of their tour guides and tours, I will definitely be recommending On the Go and be booking again very soon for another trip.

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

Morning Charlie, Just wanted to comment on the truly amazing trip I had. Everything was so well organised and everybody was committed to working together to make sure it was a memorable trek. I chose to have a porter who couldn't be faulted and I would definitely recommend this service. The time with the gorillas was beyond belief. They were so close and relaxed but one roar and you were reminded who was in charge. Thanks Charlie, another striking trip to savour over.

Dear On the Go,
I had a wonderful time in South West China on your solo traveller guided tours to Guilin and Yangshou and to Kunming, Dali and Lijiang. Hotels were great. I would also like to highly commend two of the guides - Louise in Guilin and Scott in Kunming. They were so easy to get along with, knowledgeable, recommended all sorts of other interesting things not on the tour, always pleasant and so helpful, Can't speak highly enough of both of them. The tours were a wonderful experience with lots of fascinating places and experiences. Totally loved your tours and would certainly choose to travel with your company again.

Hi Mark
I would just like to send thanks for an amazing holiday in Morocco with ON THE GO TOURS. Every minute of it was great.
I would especially like you to know that our guide Aziz Benyahia was fantastic, he is very knowledgeable and a great guide he looked after us really well, and Mustapha Idiry our driver was brilliant, he drove us throughout and did an excellent job, in some hard terrain. They were both great to have as our guides. You have two very good employees there. The hotels were lovely and the sites that we visited were truly amazing. Particularly the trip to the Sahara and the camel trek was my favourite part and was so much fun. The guides in the towns were also fabulous.
I can't say enough of how much I enjoyed it, I will certainly be recommending you as tour company and I have voted for you in the travel awards.
