Dear On The Go Tours,
Thank you all for your fantastic 10 day tour of Egypt including the Nile Cruise. We really enjoyed every minute of it and thought your organisation and staff were the best and very helpful, thank you. We would especially like to thank Zidan, your Cairo manager for all his help an also arranging the extra trip that we had to Alexandria, we had a great time there and in Cairo.
The Hotels were beautiful and the visits to places very Informative. Also on the Nile cruise, we like to thank our tour guide there - Aamer Ibrahim. He was very pleasant to deal with and always helped us with transport and currency problems on our journey down the Nile.
We will be recommending your company to anyone that we know that are thinking of travelling to Egypt and tell them what a great time they will have if they go with you.
Thanking you all once again for our lovely holiday, and wish you all the Best for 2014 and the future.

   Jewel of the Nile - 10 days

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Morocco. I felt that the local tour guides used, particularly in Fes and Rabat were great, very friendly and had a good sense of humuor. I very much enjoyed lunch with the Berber family and felt very welcome in their home. I'm very grateful to have had our guide Aziz and driver Mustafa, i always felt comfortable and any questions I had were always well answered. A massive thank you to them both. Choukran

   Totally Morocco - 9 days

Hi Alex,

My husband and I came back from our 10 day Very Vietnam Tour on Tuesday 15th July 2014 and I must say that it was the most well organised trip we have ever been on. We were in group B and our tour guide was SON, and what a brilliant guide he was. His attention to detail was spot on and he really made sure that everyone in the group was happy with the days arrangements. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he is a credit to both himself and your company.

The accommodation was amazing and the trip really showed the best of Vietnam. There was no day that was an unenjoyable day.

We have no hesitation in recommending him as a guide and On The Go Tours to our family and friends and in fact to anyone who asks. We will certainly be using On The Go Tours again.

   Very Vietnam - 10 days

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.

   Siege of Leningrad - 8 days

Dear On the Go,

I am aware that many travellers can enjoy a tour very much and go home and forget all the organisation that goes into such a tour. We would like to give credit to those who made our Very Vietnam Tour one that we will always remember.

To all connected with On the Go Tours, both here and in Vietnam, we say a big “Thank You!” From start to finish, we were very impressed with the content of the tour, our guide, transport arrangements and every aspect of the tour.

We were welcomed very late at night by your representative who transferred us to our hotel safely. It was our first visit to Vietnam, so we weren’t sure what lay ahead. The following day we met our guide Anh, who not only did a great job in guiding us from Hanoi to Ho Chi Min City, but also became a good friend to us all. His knowledge, love for his country and willingness to do all he could to make our holiday enjoyable was admirable. Anh looked on his group as his family, and that was very comforting to us. He also gave us much information about the places we went to, which was very helpful.

The variety of activities that was crammed into 10 days was excellent, without being overcrowded! We enjoyed the four main cities that we visited. The walking / bus tours of those cities were quite adequate, and allowed for further exploration afterwards if desired. We were very impressed by the beauty of the country and the friendliness of the people, but this was made better for us by the tour itself. The places we visited were extremely interesting, the crew on the junk boat in Halong Bay were excellent, as were the people who took us around the various cities, the flight crew on Vietnam Airlines, the train crew on the Reunification Express and the people on the Mekong Cruises.

We also found the accommodation excellent in every way. The standard of accommodation and the services provided could not be faulted. Delicious food, beautiful people and an overall wonderful experience. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company and the tour to others.

Thank you for the opportunity to visit Vietnam with your company. We have many photos and video to remind us of a fabulous holiday. We wish you well for the future.

   Very Vietnam - 10 days

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.

   Heritage of the Holy Land - 8 days

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.
