Hi there, I recently did the Perseids Meteor Shower Tour in Jordan.
I am writing in praise of my tour guide Amer Nazami, I found Amer to be extremely knowledgeable, all of the information he gave the group was spot on; He is very well educated.
He answered any and all questions myself and the group had asked.
Amer made sure the group was safe and comfortable at all times. He went to extra lengths to ensure the tour group had everything they needed. He took members of the group to a few shops in his own time to ensure they had all they needed.
I suffer from anxiety and was very nervous to be in Jordan for many reasons, I find it hard being surrounded by large amounts of people, I informed Amer upon my arrival and he ensured I was safe and comfortable throughout the tour; and on a couple of occasions when things got a bit to much for me he kept me calm and moved me away from these situations, to ensure I was safe and comfortable.
Amer is a wonderful tour guide and on a personal level a genuinely lovely person.
I am genuinely thankful to have had Amer as my tour guide, he is a hard worker and deserves to be praised for his hard work and genuine kindness.
Thank you for the experience of a lifetime, it was truly wonderful and I will be recommending On The Go Tours and Amer to my friends and family, whom all do a fair amount of travel.
Please pass along this review to Amer as I believe he deserves acknowledgement for his great work.”
I wanted to thank you for your work arranging the Japan trip for us. We had a fabulous time!
Everything ran smoothly and it was easy to get around with the JR passes. The instructions to travel from A to B were concise and easy to follow. The guides were both terrific. The hotels/ryokans were great. Our favourite was the Tanabe Ryokan in Takayama: the meal in the room the first night was fantastic and Mrs. Tanabe was just wonderful (I'm running out of superlatives). In fact, the staff at all the hotels were great. We really had no hang ups the whole trip other than perhaps they fed us too much at the ryokans!! Joking aside, we loved it and only wish we had had more time to spend there.
Manoj is an experienced Tour Leader representing On The Go in Sri Lanka.
Manoj did a lot of little things that made the trip easier in particular bulk purchasing water bottles that were freely available to the entire trip, a couple of times organised coconut water, fruits and nice creams, this really helps in the heat and humidity of Sri Lanka.
Additionally Manoj organised replacement activities when the Sri Lankan v Australia Cricket Test Match ended early and created an additional activity after the tour had ended for Isabel, Sarah and myself (whale and turtle watching) which was surprising and very welcomed.
This was an amazing trip covering a range of activities from landscapes, wildlife, temples, and locals. The real highlight was observing elephants in particular at watching them enjoy themselves at Pinnawala in a river, the baby elephants being hand fed at Udawalawe and roaming in the National Park.
Being a Buddhist nation ancient Temples and Stupas are going to be highlights on any visit to Sri Lanka which I thoroughly enjoyed in particular the Anuradhapura temples. But you will also find that a lot of these temples and stupas are on mountains or hills which offer great views in particular Dambulla Rock Temple and the Sigiriya ‘Lion Rock’ Fortress.
I would strongly recommend this trip, Sri Lankans are a very friendly people and as a tourist you are treated well without too much harassment. The the hotels and resorts used by this company are first rate and the experiences will stay with you long after leaving. You might struggle with the heat and humidity, I did, you might also struggle walking bare footed at the various temples, but in the end a trip to Sri Lanka is a great experience and On The Go did an excellent job.
