Frequently asked questions about On The Go Tours

Who are On The Go Tours?

We are an award-winning provider of group tours and private holidays to more than 55 destinations around the world. Led by expert local guides, our tours get you to the heart of adventure travel destinations, from Egypt and India to China, Japan, Peru and Morocco. In Africa, spot the Big Five on safari in countries including South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Botswana and Namibia.

Our guided tours in Europe are a great way to explore countries comprehensively. In Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, the Baltics, Greece and elsewhere we will visit many destinations each day – we handle the logistics of this, so you don’t have to! In Croatia you can set sail on an island-hopping adventure, and in Iceland you can take in the very best natural wonders of this spectacular destination. In Turkey we uncover all the highlights, from Istanbul to Cappadocia, and plenty of hidden gems too!

Who is welcome on your group tours?

We have trips catering for everybody. Solo travelers, couples and groups of friends can all join our tours. If you have a large group, such as a sports club or extended family, then we can also operate many of our group tours on a private basis for you. The average age of travelers on our tours is 48, but we take travelers in their 20s all the way up to those in their 80s and beyond. As long as you have a thirst for adventure, you’re welcome to join us on tour. The beauty of group touring is that you meet people from all different walks of life! We take travelers from English-speaking countries around the world, including the USA, Australia, UK, South Africa, Canada, and New Zealand.

We have a selection of dedicated family tours for families with children aged 5 or over, and some designed for families with teenagers too. There is no upper age limit on our tours, though if you are aged 70 or over (65 for trips to Africa) we will ask you to complete a tour suitability form to ensure you are fit enough to safely join the tour.

I don't fancy a group tour, can you offer me a private trip?

If group touring isn’t for you, then you will be glad to know that we also offer a selection of private tours in the majority of our destinations. These include all the same benefits as our group tours: expert guides, great accommodation, guided sightseeing, transportation and transfers, and lots more beside! But you can travel privately, with just your partner, friends, or family.

I’m a solo traveller, which tours can I go on?

All of them! Group tours are an excellent choice for solo travelers, allowing you to meet like-minded people and share incredible life-affirming experiences. Many solo travelers on our tours make friends for life, and on their next booking they are no longer travelling solo!

On the majority of our tours, a small single supplement applies to solo travelers for the privacy of their own room. We keep this as low as possible to ensure we can always welcome solo travelers. In some destinations, such as on our Africa camping safaris and some of our Iceland, Morocco and South America tours, it is possible for you to room share with another solo traveler of the same sex, avoiding the need for a single supplement.

Do you have a range of tours for seniors?

We're not called 'On The Go' for nothing! Many of our trips are active, with plenty of walking needed to explore local sites and attractions. And other activities, such as canyoning in Jordan or trekking in Morocco do require decent fitness.

However, as long as you are relatively fit and able, you will be perfectly capable of joining the majority of our tours. Age is no barrier to travel, and although you will do plenty of walking, there is always free time for you to relax and you'll have a chance to sit down over lunch or as we drive between destinations.

Some of our tours are more active than others, so if you are a bit less agile than you used to be, why not check out the tours we recommend for the over 50s? Please note that if aged 70 or over (65 if travelling to Africa) we will ask you to complete a tour suitability form to ensure you are physically able to complete the tour. This is for your safety, as well as the safety of our crew and your fellow travelers, and to ensure the trip is not slowed down.

Are all of your destinations safe for LGBTQ+ travellers?

We travel to some countries where attitudes and laws surrounding LGBTQ+ issues are not as liberal as in other destinations. Travelling in a group offers additional safety and security for LGBTQ+ travelers in places that they may not feel comfortable travelling alone. Nobody should miss out on bucket list travel because of who they are! If you have specific questions about travelling to one of our destinations as an LGBTQ+ traveler then please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you would feel more secure travelling somewhere with relaxed attitudes to the LGBTQ+ community then we recommend the LGBTQ+ Travel Safety Index, which can be a good starting point for deciding where to travel!

How do I work out which are the best tours for me?

We offer more than 500 trips, so it can be tricky to pinpoint the one for you! The best thing to do is to contact our Reservations team, who are on hand 24/7 to answer your questions and help you with your booking. But we also have lots of great trip ideas and themes for you to explore. Are you looking to book a big trip in order to celebrate your 50th birthday? Are you planning a festive trip this Christmas? Or perhaps you’re an avid hiker, and would like to plan a big trekking holiday? We’ve collated the best trips for all of these situations and many more.

Do you offer all-inclusive package trips?

Sort of! When you book a group tour with us, we guarantee all of your accommodation and transportation (airport transfers are sometimes included). Sightseeing with a local tour guide and many meals are also included on our itineraries. If there are any internal flights on your tour then these are usually included too.

We do not include international flights in our packages. The reason for this is to give you greater flexibility when booking our tours. If you’re booking a group tour to India and you have never been before, you may wish to spend extra time in Delhi before your trip, or perhaps you want to explore Bangladesh first and then fly to India for your tour afterwards? By not including international flights, you can book the trip that best suits your plans and budget. Our team can always offer you advice on booking flights, however!

Do you only offer guided tours?

We do yes, though the level of guiding can vary by trip and destination. The majority of our tours are fully escorted, which means that your guide will be with you at all times, staying in the same hotel and accompanying you on the minibus or coach throughout your trip.

We also have some semi-independent trips in destinations including Greece. Here you will be fully escorted for your mainland touring, but will then travel independently by ferry to island destinations such as Santorini and Mykonos.

And with our Essentials tours in Japan and China (and some other trips) you will travel unescorted between cities, but will enjoy the services of local guides for included sightseeing.
