After exploring the castle we descend some 1300 meters to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on the earth’s surface. More than 400 meters below sea level, the mineral-rich Dead Sea is the world’s original health and beauty spa.

This dramatic canyon features sheer rocky walls and sparkling waterways that range from puddle height to depths that are perfect for swimming (chest height or deeper) depending on the rainfall. When the water level is high you should be prepared for having to climb up ladders, clamber across boulders and be happy to wade through water. The canyon is just one feature of the Mujib Biosphere Reserve, the lowest nature reserve in the world, home to a surprising diversity of wildlife and plant species. After our trek we make our way to the Dead Sea. For those not interested in taking the full hike, you can walk part of or wait by the Visitor Centre till the group returns.

I have returned home from 3 weeks with “On The Go” - “Pyramids, Petra & Promised Lands” (plus Alexandria & El Alamein). I have enjoyed the trip and saw many things that I wanted to see (ticked off on my bucket list).

Upon arrival I met a rep and he helped me to bypass any queue and I was surprised to see this and had a driver waiting for me to get into the hotel without any problems. I was greeted by Amir at the hotel and gave me useful information for my trip such as the name of the guide, time to leave the hotel for Alexandria etc.

Momo was a perfect person to lead the tour due to his excellent knowledge of Egyptian history and Gods, his sense of humour, his passion for his country and his work. Loved this guy from the first day I met and I would love to go back to Egypt again! The highlights were cruising on the Nile in a felucca, Abu Simbel (worthwhile trip even an early morning wake-up call), snorkelling and banana boat ride at the Red Sea, camel ride at Giza and visiting various temples by day and night.

Being a vegetarian, I have enjoyed eating Egyptian foods especially the falafels, vegetable stew and humus. No dramas whatsoever. The people on the tour were friendly and easy to get along with and thanks to Momo who made the family bonded for life. I felt very safe travelling in Egypt and would do it again. There are a lot of negative feedback from the social media saying Egypt is not safe to travel which is very wrong. These Egyptian people were extremely friendly like Momo and Amir. This trip provided a great immersion into the history and culture of this beautiful country Egypt.

I am indebted to Momo and Amir for life and I have memories of this trip that will last a life time.

After Egypt I went to Jordan and Israel and had good guides. The highlights were hiking at Petra, cruising along the desert of Wadi Rum, floating at the Dead Sea, walking around Jerusalem – Old City, Dome of the Rock, Western Wall. I asked the guide that I would like to go to Austrian Hospice roof top and had no problems. The view of the old city Jerusalem was amazing. I would recommend On The Go to my family and friends.

I cannot recommend the on the go egypt tours enough. As a travel destination Egypt is exciting, interesting and inspirational- people were friendly and I felt safe the whole time and would happily go back.

The tour was organized, efficient and while offering autonomy to do your on thing [could make decisions to stay at sites longer] the itinerary (and guides) made you not want to miss any of the group activities.

Finally our guide Momo deserves an award as best guide next year 2019. Hard working, organized, intelligent, kind and understanding- he has clear passion about his job and has had significant influence on our tour group 'family'. I have traveled with many guides - South America, Africa, Asia and now the middle east -he has no equal.

Pretty action packed tour with some amazing sites. Momo had great energy and was very personable. My only desire would have been to eat more smaller 'On The Go' lunches rather than restaurant meals. Additionally I would have preferred trading one day less in the Dead Sea for one day in Amman Jordan.

Egypt was absolutely amazing. The tour is set out so you get a true taste for this beautiful country. Momo was such a knowledgeable guide and was always putting his best foot forward. He is an award winning guide for a reason. Momo is just brilliant. Egypt is extremely safe. Not once did I feel unsafe. The people are so kind and generous and very welcoming. This tour has opened my eyes to another corner of the world and one that I will cherish. If you are thinking about it then absolutely visit Egypt and all it's wonders. I cannot recommend it more.

The tour covered the main archaeological sites in Egypt. Returning many years after my first visit the sites are still incredible.

We had no issues with safety and were very well looked after by Momo our tour guide.

Momo was professional and very knowledgeable about the history of Egypt. He also made the tour fun and was the key to making our group bond.

I would recommend to anyone to go there and would like to thank Momo and On the Go tours for a terrific time.

What an amazing experience Egypt is 💕. An adventurous and diverse group of 18 set off to tackle pyramids, tombs and old stuff. It was all overwhelmingly beautiful and fascinating! Our guide Momo was so knowledgeable and entertaining which made our group bond closely and have the maximum of fun.

From the impressive pyramids in Cairo, Valley of the Kings, Abu Simbel, swimming in the Nile, to sleeping on a felucca it was the whole experience. There were bumps on the way, such as sandstorms which held up our felucca experience but Momo sorted out alternative arrangements quickly and professionally.

I would do it all again in a heartbeat and would recommend On the Go as a superb company to tour with. I felt safe the entire time and can see that tourism is developing in a positive way throughout all of Egypt. If you are lucky enough to have Momo as your guide you will have the best of times.

Also I cannot forget Amir who was the On the Go representative that welcomed us at the hotel armed with information and his beaming smile and got us started with the tour.

Thanks Momo, Amir and On the Go Tours - making forever memories!

Absolutely brilliant, exceeded my expectations. We were well looked after in every department. even when lost baggage were an issue On The Go chased them and managed to get them to us. I would highly recommend going on this tour it is as it says on the packet On The Go and that is what you do. Not much standing still on this tour. The guides were exceptional in looking after us all nothing seemed to much to ask.

This was my 3rd group tour with On the Go and it's fair to say now that overall this is very organised, well established tour company. Our Egypt guide (Mahmoud Ramadan), especially, was very knowledgeable, approachable, courteous and kind. He operated as part of team of Egyptian guides to meet the needs of our 2 groups, as activities overlapped or journeys went separate ways. We travelled during the local winter time and it was a great time to avoid the excessive heat and crowds.

My favourite place in Jordan ended up being Wadi Rum. This was called a safari but was more like an outdoor adventure

The 3 country trip was fabulous.
