Dear Sarah

I just wanted to write and thank you for organising our unforgettable trip to Egypt. We had the most amazing time and will treasure our memories of it.

The representative of On The Go were wonderful - they looked after our every need and often went beyond the call of duty to make sure we had the best experience. Our guide Ahmed Helal was excellent. His thorough knowledge of Egyptology was evident and he managed to convey information in a very skilful way, introducing a subject and later picking it up so that our knowledge deepened and the things that we saw made more sense as we put it all into context. He also ensured that we had the best experience of our tour, seeing temples and picking out details that we would never have seen otherwise.

Ahmed was not only a wonderful and incredibly knowledgable guide but he was also excellent at getting things done. He sorted out all practical details pf our stay, making sure that we had adjoining rooms etc in such a way that we had a very comfortable and wonderful experience. He made sure that we always knew where he was so that we could contact him if we needed to, so we had no concerns of any kind throughout the trip.

In Cairo we were excellently looked after by Abdul, who took us to Khan al-Khalili Bazaar on our last night, which gave us a truly memorable end to our stay. Abdul (Midou) was so much fun and very charming and we all really enjoyed his company.

The tour itself was incredible and the variety of location and what they had to offer meant that each day brought a fresh marvel! The Pyramids and Sphinx were phenomenal - to actually be was amazing. The camel rides were great fun too! Visiting Aswan and sailing on the Nile to visit the Nubian village was an unexpected hi-light for me. The Nile is such a beautiful river! Luxor blew us all away - it is just such an incredible place. The Valley of the Kings has such an eerie desolation about it, and we were lucky enough tho find Tutankamun's tomb open so fulfilled a lifelong wish to visit that. That night we visited Luxor Temple in the evening, which was magical. We had a hot air balloon ride the next morning and then visited Karnak. Each day enriched the others and it gave us a very full and many layered experience.

The journey to Hurghad was another unexpected high point - discovering the country and the change from lucy Nile valley to arid but beautully colourful desert was eye opening. Then the last few day spent in Hurghada was a wonderful way to digest and relax, and very popular with our teenage children. The snorkelling was out of this world!

All the hotel we stayed in were amazing in different ways, but Hurghada was so much fun, and the staff were very friendly. The food was great throughout and the rooms luxurious and comfortable.

Thank you once again for a truly wonderful experience. We would not hesitate to recommend it to everyone and will be telling our friends all about it!

With very best regards ”

I accompanied a group of 25 people to Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng and Vientiane. The itinerary was excellent. However, if we had the luxury of time, we would have added another day in Luang Prabang and another day in Van Vieng. We loved both areas and would have liked to spend more time in each. The drive from Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng is extremely difficult, filled with twists and turns, and washed out road, but we enjoyed the scenery and glimpses of local life and would not have changed it. Accommodations and meals were excellent, as were all tours and activities included. We did add an elephant ride and feeding the monks which I would strongly recommend.

Pom was our guide. He did everything possible to ensure we maximized our time and our experiences while in Laos; fine-tuning our plans from day to day. He shared his love for his country, his people, and his culture with us and we were so fortunate to have him as our guide. He is kind, considerate and animated. His command of the English language is very good although some clients had difficulty at times understanding his commentary. I clarified a few key ideas and we were off and running. I would not hesitate to recommend the tour to other clients. ”
