Hotels and transportation were great. Our guide was absolutely phenomenal he was able to read the group and brought us closer together, turning a group of strangers into a group of friends. Very knowledgeable of our destinations and able to answer any questions. The tour wouldn’t have been the same without him.

Many on the tour didn’t like the train, but I enjoyed it. They just don’t give much for breakfast.

The tour was excellent, it took us through the most amazing places I've ever seen, with fantastic people and great accommodation too.

I have no words to thank Medo, our guide, enough for all the fantastic stories that he told us and for all that he did for us when my partner broke his foot. It was a pleasure to hear him talking about the vast history of his beloved country! Best guide ever! Egypt is an amazing country and I really look forward to go back!

My partner and I both enjoyed our On The Go tour through Egypt. This was largely due to our exceptionally knowledgeable guide, Medo. He was attentive to the needs of all tour members and entertaining in his delivery of information to the group.

During the tour I suffered an injury to my foot. Medo (Ahmed Esmet) went above and beyond to accommodate me and ensure I still got to enjoy what Egypt had to offer. We can't thank him enough for turning a potentially negative experience into a positive one.

Where do I even start? I didn't know what I was going to expect on this tour, but let me say that I have been completely blown away. This tour has got to have been the most incredible adventure I have been on, and On The Go Tours made sure it was memorable for all the right reasons. They take extremely good care of their clients, starting from someone meeting you at the airport to bypass immigration in a flash, and there is someone with you until you have passed through the airport at the end. Egypt as a country is absolutely incredible, and On The Go Tours made sure we were looked after in the highest standards, be it the comfortable 4/5 star hotels and resorts we stayed in, and mainly by our fantastic guide Momo. Momo on his own made the Tour memorable and fun. His knowledge of Egypt thorough and he made sure that it was fun, interactive and easy to remember for everyone In the group. I don't know how he gets his energy to continuously be energetic, making sure we all are alright at the same time. Being part of a guided tour group made it really easy to move around, and brought a huge element of convenience to traveling here. At the hotels your check In is done by OTG, luggage carried to your room. At the tombs, museums and sites, your tickets are organised and handed to you as you arrive. All transport is comfortable between the hotels and all sites. In terms of the transport, I sailed on the Nile River on the traditional felucca, and am I really glad that I did! Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a high standard of comfort, and I would have been a lot more comfortable on the Nile cruise upgrade with a bed and ensuite bathroom, but I have no regrets going in the felucca, as the experience was that much better. We were very comfortable sleeping on the cushions and pillows at night (under the stars I might add) and during the day, we spent it sailing, tanning on the deck and getting to know the fellow travellers. as a result of this, I now have lifelong friendships with them, and I don't think we would have bonded so easily otherwise. The felucca also gave us extra opportunities such as swimming in the Nile River, and visiting the house of a Nubian family, and more, things we would have missed otherwise.

I am now back at home, filled with knowledge of ancient (and modern) Egypt, a handful of great new friends, and the desire to go on another adventure and learn more about our world. On The Go Tours made this such an incredible journey, that it will be very difficult to even consider traveling with anyone else.

Thank you!

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!

Tour Add-ons

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

Hotels and transportation were great. Our guide was absolutely phenomenal he was able to read the group and brought us closer together, turning a group of strangers into a group of friends. Very knowledgeable of our destinations and able to answer any questions. The tour wouldn’t have been the same without him.

Many on the tour didn’t like the train, but I enjoyed it. They just don’t give much for breakfast.
