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.

I absolutely adored every second of my tour in Egypt. On the Go made everything so easy and fun from the moment I started booking this trip. The customer service people were so helpful and kind, they helped me schedule the exact trip I wanted. Once I arrived in Egypt there was someone with me the whole way making sure I was where I needed to be. I met Mido at the airport and he was so helpful, giving me information about Egypt on the way to the hotel and really helping to start the trip off on the right foot. Traveling with this group was so good, I never had to worry about a thing. This is the first time I've taken a group tour and I loved it. I would 100% take a tour with On the Go again as well as recommend them to any and all of my friends.

Momo was an amazing guide, he is super knowledgeable about all the different sites we saw, and had a great way of keeping us all entertained while teaching us about the sites we we saw. He made sure we were all having a wonderful time and his love for Egypt is absolutely contagious. I adored being a part of his group and would happily join his group again if the opportunity ever arose.

As for Egypt itself, what an amazing, breathtaking, beautiful place. I fell in love with it while I was there and cannot wait to go back. The people were wonderful, the Felucca was a delight, the ancient temples were surreal and the pyramids were as impressive as I thought they would be. If you even have an inkling of visiting, absolutely go, you won't be disappointed.

Aamer was without doubt the best guide I have ever had. He was so informative during the entire tour it was amazing. The care he showed to such a diverse group was exemplary. A credit to On the go. Nicola Comley and her support team were also a credit and provided excellent advice. I would highly recommend and already have!

This feedback is not for the tour guide but for the Felucca captain, Mohamed Badry. I have already left feedback for the tour guide. But now I want to talk about the super friendly and hospitable Mohamed Badry who was our Felucca captain/operator and who brought many smiles to all our faces with his genuine warmth and care for us whilst on his boats.

Mohamed clearly loves his job and he takes an enormous amount of pride in the cleanliness and upkeep of his boats. He went out of his way to make us feel comfortable, welcome and added so much more to the enjoyment of our tour. He always made sure we had enough to eat and he always presented us with lovely, freshly cooked meals. This man did not stop working but he always had time to smile, to help someone alight the boat, to carry someone's luggage or to bring them more food or an extra pillow or blanket. He did not rest himself to everyone else was resting.

It is not often that you find someone so genuine and warm and I suspect that the Felucca captains do not get too many mentions since your form is specifically geared to leave feedback for the guides. But it would be remiss of me not to mention Mohamed Badry (Aswan) and I hope in future your feedback form can extend to others who are a part of your team.

I would be most pleased if Mohamed is recognised for his brilliant service and that your company extends their appreciation of its employees to others, not just the guides.

My family and me undertook the King Tut tour from the 7th of April to the 16th of April and we enjoyed every minute of it. From the time we landed in Cairo Airport to the time we departed, On the Go was there with us every step of the way. We felt very safe and well looked after during our lovely time in Egypt.

The next day upon arrival we got to meet the rest of our group which was a great mix of people from different countries and age groups and we all bonded very well.

Our tour guide Mahmoud Ramadan was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and courteous along with having a good sense of humour. He took the time to get to know all of us and did not hesitate in sharing his knowledge about the history and local information about Egypt. 

We visited the Pyramids, Luxor and Aswan and saw all the beautiful temples along the way. Abu Simbel was simply spectacular and definately worth the early morning wake up. We visited the Valley of the Kings and got to see some really beautiful tombs. The art work and colors used inside the tombs were breathtaking. We opted for the Nile cruise upgrade and it was a wonderful and relaxing experience and we were able to leisurely enjoy the sightseeing along the way and then come back to the ship and relax on deck. 

St George Sonesta was an excellent hotel to stay at and was certainly my favourite for thia trip. 

The train journey from Cairo to Aswan was alright but not the best experience to have. Perhaps a flight would be a better option for the future

Overall we had a wonderful time and will like to say that Egypt is a wonderful country to visit. It has great history and culture which should not be missed. We felt safe and welcomed by the people there. 

I thank On the Go tours for making all the arrangements and for providing us with such a warm and friendly guide Mahmoud, who made this such a memorable trip for us.

We just came back from our King Tut tour with On the Go, and it was a great 9 days! They pick you up BEFORE immigration, and don't leave your side until you're back at the airport at security on the way back. Wake up calls are included, and they even ride with you in the taxi from the airport and to the airport to make sure you don't miss your flight - talk about service! We opted for the Nile Cruise upgrade which we would highly recommend as it was a more reasonable pace for those that want to see the sights and relax at the same time. Alam our tour guide was great with starting our activities early in the morning to avoid the strongest heat of the day, back to the cruise for a swim in the pool on the top deck and a snooze before going out in the evening again to view the temples followed by dinner. The sleeper cabin was probably the worst bit - but it's the national railway line so that's out of the tour group's control. I did feedback that once was enough and perhaps next time we could fly into Aswan instead :) For those that want more of the adventure part of the tour then the felluca ride would be fun (esp when coupled with a sandstorm!). The hotels are a bit of a mix: the first one was not that great (they've decided they won't use that hotel anymore), but from the cruise ship onwards it was great - esp the one in Luxor (the Sonesta St George). Alam looked after us really well: there was no question we couldn't ask, and he sought to accommodate us even when we had trouble bargaining at shops he would step in if we asked!

MoMo was an exceptional tour guide. He went above and beyond to make sure each one of us had the best possible tour. He was friendly and very experience and knowledgeable.

Tour Add-ons

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

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.
