Absolutely amazing experience. Matthew was with us until the end of the tour but we also had Andrew and Faye with us along the way. They are all very professional and well spoken guys. Nothing was too much for all of them, they made the whole experience even more enjoyable
I would not hesitate to recommend On the Go Tours to anyone.”
I felt it was very well organized. The places we went were interesting and we were able to get a feel for the history and culture of China. I would have liked a day or a few hours to go around each city to explore on my own.
I think if we could have done a cooking class somewhere, that would have been really great because there were a lot of dishes that we ate that I would like to know how to cook. Our tour guides were informative and entertaining. Overall I had a good time and would definitely go on a On The Go Tours again.”
From the moment Matthew greeted me at the Airport until he said goodbye at the end he was always smiling and happy nothing was too much trouble and he had a wealth of information he real made my holiday Please thanK him for me ”
