I had a fabulous time on the tour, Sat was a great tour guide. He balanced humour and knowledge well. India has been incredible and I would highly recommend it to others. We would both travel with On the Go again, Hopefully soon.

Just some feedback now we are home from our wonderful trip to Vietnam and Cambodia.
Highlights of the tour were:
Six Senses at Ninh Van Bay (paradise location and facilities) - while this was our own arrangement would recommend this to anyone who wanted a bit of luxury and pampering. It also was a nice break in an otherwise hectic schedule. Having said that we were tempted not to do the tour that was arranged for Nha Trang during our stay at Six Senses but really pleased that we did as we have a lovely time in our "personal" speedboat!
Siem Reap (especially Angkor Wat - WOW)
... but all of it was good. Hanoi and HCM city are wonderful frenetic cities, some of the scenery fantastic, Halong Bay great even though we had misty and overcast weather for this part of the trip.
Could not fault On the Go Tours - hotels were very good (particularly in Hanoi, Hoi An, HCM City and Phnom Penh), guides all excellent, drivers all excellent and vehicles comfortable. Pace was good and everything went without a single hitch; superb organisation on your organisation's part. The personalised way of travelling suited us (but felt a bit guilty at times given the standard of some components of the tour!) and would like to do something similar - possibly in India in the future.
Vietnam and Cambodia are fantastic destinations and we will have lasting memories of the people, sights and food.
You can be assured that we would have no hesitation in recommending OTGT to anyone we speak to based on this experience

We've just got back and we have to say it was brilliant! It’s hard to say what the highlights were because there were so many, from the obvious spectacular sights like the Taj Mahal to just going around seeing how ordinary people live.
The main thing that made it work for us was the organisation by On the Go. Although our itinerary was quite complex, at every stage we were met by your representatives and drivers, who were very helpful and made the whole thing go very smoothly. We did make a couple of changes at the suggestion of your representative in Delhi, Mukesh. He'd looked at the timing of two of our train journeys and said that we'd see much more of the country and arrive at our hotels much earlier if we went by car (he told us we'd have the same driver from Delhi to Udaip). That worked really well, not least because our driver, Barvan Singh, was brilliant both by being really pleasant and helpful and pointing out interesting sights along the way.
Thanks for organising everything for us. We'd have no hesitation in recommending On the Go to anyone considering making that sort of trip.

Just wanted to let you know from us both that we had a fantastic holiday in Vietnam and really really loved the tour. Our guide, John was brilliant, the group was fun and by the end of our trip we were all enjoying each other, for us the age group was perfect, all in all a fab time. Thanks for your patience and help.

Dear On The Go,
I would like to take this time to thank you for an incredible tour! My wife and I chose the Dunes and Tombs tour because we sought an adventurous, historically rich and interesting tour. You sure did deliver! Everything we did and saw was fantastic, but what stood out for me the most was camel riding by the pyramids, camping overnight in the White Desert, riding a felucca along the Nile, witnessing Abu Simbel and finally relaxing in Hurghada. This tour was truly remarkable and the sights will remain in our memories forever. However, what made our trip the most memorable was our guide, Mahmoud Ramadan!
When we first met Mahmoud on day one of the tour, he immediately showed us his approachability and kindness. As the tour progressed, these characteristics never wavered. He constantly offered guidance and suggestions to make us feel comfortable and at ease. I never once felt uneasy asking for anything. Furthermore, he called our hotel rooms many times to see if the room was to our liking or if there was anything he could do for us to make our stay better. I've never encountered such dedication towards our comfort.
Mahmoud was extremely knowledgeable of the historical sites we visited. He knew all the names of important figures by heart, as well as the meaning of hieroglyphs found in tombs and temples. Listening to his knowledge of these sites made our trip even more worthwhile. He was very animated with his storytelling. He really made us appreciate the history of Egypt. On top of that, he explained often of current Egyptian culture. He also explained the history and differences between Islamic and Coptic and the influences of the Roman and Greek world on Egyptian architecture and art. He helped us learn essential words in Arabic, customs and even the current political situation, which I found very informative and interesting. He is very well-rounded.
All in all, Mahmoud was an outstanding and professional guide. The tour would not have been the same without him. He was very courteous and made every attempt at making our stay pleasant. I've been on many tours and by far he is the best. I plan to recommend this tour to friends and family and to request him as their guide. When we visit Jordan and/or revisit Egypt with On The Go, we will seek Mahmoud!
Thank you On The Go for a lovely experience!

I wanted to send you an email to express how much I enjoyed my tour "Dunes and Tombs" from Jan 20th to Feb 07th. It was the perfect combination of adventure, sight seeing and relaxation. My favourite sights were the Karnak temple, Luxor temple by night and of course, Abu Simbel. I also enjoyed the fact that we were able to relax in Hurghada for a few days but I wish On The Go gave us more activities to do.
My favourite part of the entire trip was the Western desert. The Bahariyya Oasis and the White desert...wow. Our hotel in Bahariyya was absolutely incredible. It was charming and gorgeous. I absolutely loved visiting the old, abandoned city of Bahr. It was very humbling to see the people who still live there. It was the first place I bought a souvenir from. So refreshing to buy something handmade and locally made that isn't made in China, like everything at the tourist sights.
Finally, I wanted to end this review with a commentary about my guide, Mahmoud Ramadan. He was absolutely, 100% AMAZING.
1) He is so passionate about his job. He loves Egypt, Egyptology, guiding and monuments.
2) He is respectful. He never forced our group to buy anything. He gave us lots of time at every sight. Even when we only had 15 mins, he always asked us how much time WE wanted.
3) He is so knowledgable. He knew what every hieroglyph, monument, time line of history, background information, biographies, currency exchange....anything...he knew it. To have a guide who is able to guide us and help us is so priceless.
4) He is kind and funny. He always made every single sight enjoyable and fun. An 18 day tour can be very tiring. Even by the end of the tour, I was still excited to see things.
5) He goes the extra mile. I went on this tour as a part of my honeymoon. He made every part of this trip so memorable for us. When we were least expecting it, he surprised us with local sweets. He always had coins handy if I needed to use the toilet and forgot my extra pounds. He toasted us at restaurants. When we wanted to do extra things, he organized those trips. He was always ready to help us. Even when we had free time and he should have been relaxing, he called our room EVERY DAY to ask if our room was perfect. He made sure that our room was extra special (made sure the hotel gave us flowers one time) because he knew this was our honeymoon.
To be perfectly honest, when I come back to Egypt, I will use On The Go but ONLY if Mahmoud is my guide. He was so great and I really hope your company recognizes what a great asset he is.

Overall I was very happy with the whole holiday. India and the Indian people were fascinating. I found Indian people very friendly, happy and good to be with. This was one of the best holidays ever had and I have travelled extensively. I looked forward to each day with excitement. Thank you very much.
