|Mexico City to Guatemala - 22 days|
From the moment I was collected by a driver at Hanoi Airport until dropped off at Siem Reap Airport, I had an absolutely fabulous time along with around 20 others, and much of the enjoyment came from the way On the Go structured the trip. Anyone who reads this review in conjunction with a trip itinerary will see that this company thinks creatively and deeply in order to make their tours special.
We travelled by train, boats and planes, by bus, by bicycle, by cyclo and even by ox cart! We walked to some venues. Each method of travel was just right for the occasion (though 14 hours on a train with a concrete mattress, as a cabin mate put it, was something perhaps worth doing only once). Ages in our group ranged from 20s to 70s and all were able to keep up. As the brochure suggests, a reasonable level of fitness may be needed for some parts of the trip. You don’t have to be a triathlete, but you should not be a complete couch potato either.
On the Go also chooses its guides wisely. Mr Nguyen in Vietnam, Ms Lyka in Phnom Penh and Mr Vannak in Siem Reap became our friends in very quick time. They were fabulous guides who were specialists in their own areas. They were thoroughly professional, efficient and empathetic. We were treated like one big happy family by the guides and were given detailed information about everything we did. Not all of it was pleasant, like hearing about Pol Pot and seeing where he carried out his work, but every single thing we did on the trip was worth doing, and, almost all of it was lots of fun.
One more thing. I didn’t feel like I was being gouged for extra money to do extra things or to over tip someone who was merely going through the motions. I was happy to tip these guides because they earned every bit of it.
When I first planned to visit Vietnam, I had certain highlights in mind, including Halong Bay, Hoi An, Siem Reap and one or two others. My travel agent examined the list and was able to recommend this trip first hand because she had done it. That is a pretty good recommendation, and now I know why she was so enthusiastic. I’ve travelled quite a bit, and this is one of the best tours I’ve ever taken. And no, I’m not being paid or offered any incentive to write this. The trip was simply that good!

Firstly we do not think that the experience as a whole could have been better so really there are only good things to relate in that regard. The National guides we had, Nicky on the tailor-made tour, and Betty and Tom (not their real names obviously) on the Yin and Yangtze were exemplary and we cannot speak highly enough of their knowledge, attitude, patience, assistance, and thoughtfulness. They were able to change the itinerary depending on traffic etc to ensure we had the maximum time advantage at each attraction. There was never an apparent hurry and everyone's varying needs and wishes were catered for. Speaking to other tourist groups along the way, this was not always their experience.
The tours fully covered all the tourist aspects of China that were advertised on the brochures and were the ones we wanted to experience. The only exception was the cruise terminated above the wall of the Three Gorges Dam due to adverse weather conditions. In hindsight this was probably for the best as we understood that being on the ship in the 5 cavernous locks is noisy and could be smelly with diesel fumes. The next morning Tom had made all the necessary arrangements for a bus tour of the dam wall and associated facilities, so we missed nothing.
We were the oldest couple on the tour but did not have any problems with the pace at all. Our guide, Tom, made himself available to the younger ones to go out in the evening thus enhancing their experience.
Since our return we have recommended "On The Go" to people we know and will continue to do so. We would have no hesitation to take one of your tours again to another exotic destination.
Thank you Kelly for your friendly can do attitude through the planning, advice, and purchase phases of this holiday. We have enjoyed every bit.

I would like to say that Janine and I had a wonderful time in Vietnam and Cambodia. People have been asking me to pick the best place and it is a hard choice because there were many highlights for various reasons, but for me I think Cambodia was a real surprise. I wasn’t expecting to like Phnom Penh as much, would definitely like to go back and spend more time there. Hoi An of course and next time will be more nights on Halong Bay.
Once again, everything went extremely well on the ground – all guides and drivers were fantastic.

Hi guys thank you for such an awsome hoiliday! Good morning Vietnam tour!! Cong our tour guide is an asset to your company, an absolute gem and a credit to his country. He gave us an insight into the history of Vietnam. Such a war torn country and the people are so friendly. From the north to the south, by car, boat, train, plane. The drivers, to the accommodation, the best adventure holiday by far!! A gourmet food experience, from cooking class, carving vegetables, jungle food, to the most beautiful restaurants. A holiday to remember. Thanks once again!!

As my first group tour I thought this was a wonderful experience. Igor was a great guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and very keen to help in anyway possible. The local guides were also exceptional, very knowledgeable and extremely passionate about their country.

|Back in the USSR - 7 days|
the tour was amazing. Exceeded our expectations. Tohi (tour guide) is an absolute gem. He really went above and beyond.
We have both travelled with adventure companies before and rate this now as one of the best. Inclusions of accommodation and food where surprising in a good way. Love the included transfers. Love the mix of bus, boat, train (we have been on India trains so coped well) and bike and rickshaw.
Back to Tohi - very patient, very knowledgeable and very much an asset to on the go.
Loved the amount of free time, very big thing for us when we travel. Loved the size of the group!
We would both definitely travel with on the go again.
Thank you On the Go !!

|Very Vietnam - 10 days|
Moving around in this country would be difficult on your own. Having a guide and organised tour eases the worry of not having to do everything your self is more relaxing. First time we have been with a group tour and the meeting of people from many different countrys is Great. All the people on our bus were younger than us and we all got on really well, a nice group.
