The tour was wonderful and gave us a true cultural experience: the sights, the food, the felucca experience, the markets and the friendliness of the Egyptians.

Our only negative was the sleeper trains, which knocks 1 star off the tour rating for us - the public toilets unbearable, the rooms tiny and noisy, and the food on offer inadequate. A sleeper train experience is meant to be a peaceful, relaxing one but this was anything but!

I have only good things to say about our guide Sherif, who I now consider a friend too. His knowledge was superb but it was his personality that won us all over, and there were some things he did which may not have been part of the tour officially, but added a lovely personal touch, such as trying some local coffee and street food, swimming in the Nile, or the BBQ we had one night on the beach, with local music, singing and dancing.

We felt we had a true Egyptian experience, thank you!

What a great experience! We definitely ticked all boxes of everything to see in Egypt. The tour is definitely on the go, but you don't want to miss a thing. Edfu temple was my favourite and I was lucky enough to spend my birthday sailing the felucca on the nile. Thank you to Mido from picking us up at the airport and guiding us on our first day, to Dino being an absolute legend throughout our tour! Even organised a cake for my birthday.

One negative: there wasn't much of a current culture visit within this tour. But besides that, you see and visit Egypt. And I would recommend this tour for all ages as it was a small group and when needed we were able to pace it. Enjoy and thank you !

Our tour guide was so passionate and experienced in all facets of Egypt history that we were enthralled by all that we saw. It was the most amazing tour where we had opportunities to climb inside a pyramid, ride camels just to name a few. Our guide new how to maximise our time on tour sites when we were the first tour there, hence no crowds. Discussed how to deal with people when haggling in the markets. We totally felt safe and at ease during our time in Egypt. This tour was one of the best tours my husband and I have ever been on and we have toured quite extensively both with other companies and on our own. I highly recommend this tour to Egypt.

Our guide was entertaining, friendly, and knowledgeable. He worked hard to make sure we had proper hotel accommodations after our felucca trip on the Nile was cut short by a day due to a sandstorm. He and the guide with him, Ahmed, were easy going and made everyone feel as though they could come to them with any questions or concerns.

What an amazing tour! Everyone representing On The Go was great. From Sam who I booked with, Ahmed who handled the airport transfers as well as various other things in between and also all the other people who made sure everything went smooth along the way.

Our guide Ramadan was a big part of the whole awesome experience of my trip. He is a truly great person who cared that we got the most out of our time on the tour. His knowledge and patience explaining what we were seeing made sure that everyone in the group got a clear picture and understanding of all the amazing monuments. He also did a perfect job organizing and maximizing the time we had, improvising along the way for as much rest (and pool time) as possible in between all the breathtaking things to see and do. I feel lucky to have been able to spend a week with him touring the sites I've always wanted to see.

Our group was filled with great people who cared about the others and made sure everyone enjoyed their time to the fullest. I enjoyed meeting and spending time with everyone.

The hotels were all very nice and it was great to be able to cool off in the swimming pool a few times during the trip.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the felucca and with its crew. It was a relaxing and quiet time on the Nile. It wasn't about how far down the river we were making it everyday but about how we were getting there. I would do the trip again tomorrow if I could!

Our guide Ramadan was fantastic, friendly, well-informed, patient and went to lots of trouble to make sure all the guests on the trip were happy, safe and comfortable, as well as fitting in everything they wanted to do. He made every monument and temple visit fascinating and the information and history accesible to all, no matter what level a person's knowledge of Egytian history. My particular highlight was the Felucca Cruise, which was so relaxing, expecially as the crew looked after us so well and provided delicious food. Egypt felt very safe to me- I throughly recommend going soon!

From the second we touched down in Cairo on the go tour rep was there to meet us and take us through passport control. I know many people are scared to come to Egypt but it was very very safe. Our guide was Momo and he is such a character he had so much information to give and we all learnt something on our trip it was amazing and he is fantastic at what he does. My highlight was visiting Abu Simbel and Luxor temples they were fantastic and stunning to see.

I opted for the cruise which was amazing and luxurious and food was divine. I would recommend everyone to take this trip to Egypt as it's a once in a lifetime experience and actually standing next to these sites is mind blowing.

Well done On The Go and Momo for being amazing at what you do and all staff for being so polite and helpful, thank you for a making my Egypt experience amazing.

We enjoyed our trip very much, it hit all the highlights. Logistics were well managed along with the arrival and departure process at the airport. We were particularly pleased with our tour guide Ramadan, his knowledge and clear passion & pride in his country was evident and added immeasurably to our experience. I was also impressed that the one time we ran into difficulties on the trip (miserable sand storm on day 2 of the felucca trip) On The Go stepped up and moved the group to a hotel for the night at no extra expense to us. Customer service beyond what we expected.

The tour was everything and more than I expected it to be and I fulfilled a childhood dream. Egypt is a fascinating country and its history was brought alive by Mo.

Myself and Ana enjoyed visiting the different sites and we were able to visit the tomb of Queen Nefartari, which was an added bonus. Abu Simbel blew my mind by its scale.

We both felt that there could've been more time given to those who wanted to explore sites. For example, our visit to Saqqara was limited and there was no opportunity to wander around. Perhaps give those who are more adventurous the chance to explore and rendezvous later?

Absolutely loved the King Tut tour, On the Go were so incredible for the entire duration of the trip - from meeting you at the airport before immigration to ensure that you have no issues upon arrival, to arranging wake up calls every morning and the perfectly planned itinerary with fantastic hotels for the whole trip I couldn't ask for more.

Our guide Momo was phenomenal with plethora of knowledge and he was just so passionate about his country. You can tell that he truly loves what he does and that really shows and makes all the difference for your experience. I would 110% recommend that everyone should experience the King Tut tour with On The Go.

The only thing that I would have done differently for my trip would have been to extend and book the King Ramses Tour instead so that I could have stayed with the group for 3 days longer and experienced the Red Sea. Other than that it was everything I'd been dreaming of since I was a little kid and so much more.

Thank you On The Go.

Tour Add-ons

Enhance your trip with these amazing added extras and add-ons

The tour was wonderful and gave us a true cultural experience: the sights, the food, the felucca experience, the markets and the friendliness of the Egyptians.

Our only negative was the sleeper trains, which knocks 1 star off the tour rating for us - the public toilets unbearable, the rooms tiny and noisy, and the food on offer inadequate. A sleeper train experience is meant to be a peaceful, relaxing one but this was anything but!

I have only good things to say about our guide Sherif, who I now consider a friend too. His knowledge was superb but it was his personality that won us all over, and there were some things he did which may not have been part of the tour officially, but added a lovely personal touch, such as trying some local coffee and street food, swimming in the Nile, or the BBQ we had one night on the beach, with local music, singing and dancing.

We felt we had a true Egyptian experience, thank you!
