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. Drift out and bob in the waters and slap on some of the famous black Dead Sea mud to give your skin an invigorating boost.

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.

This tour was amazing! We got to see some much in such a short amount of time but it was never overwhelming or felt rushed. Our tour guide Medo was absolutely incredible; he was friendly, funny, helpful, and full of so much information! Medo definitely made this tour 10 times better, and I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in going to Egypt.

I really enjoyed the Road to Jordan tour. It definitely surpassed all expectations. Egypt was truly an amazing experience, and I 100% recommend On The Go Tours. Medo, our tour guide, was absolutely fantastic; very friendly, and willing to engage in conversation with everyone. Medo is obviously very knowledgeable, and passionate about Egypt, and was able to transfer this to the group. Medo’s enthusiasm was a highlight of this tour.

We had the best time on tour in Egypt, above all our expectations. We felt safe at all times in Egypt and Jordan. Our guide was amazing, Momo made this trip so special for us and the rest of the family group. From the first night’s dinner Momo encouraged everyone to make connections and get to know each other. We travelled with a wonderful group of people, people we would definitely travel with again if we had the chance. Momo was friendly, outgoing, supportive, encouraging to everyone and catering their interests, making us into a family group. He went out of his way to encourage this even taking us out to great local spots for dinner each night. His knowledge of all the sites, history and culture was excellent. We asked so many questions and learnt so much. We continued as the same group into Jordan, with another fantastic guide.

We loved the different modes of transport on this tour from the overnight sleeper train to camel rides, horse and cart, desert Jeep and the five star luxury of the Nile river cruise, which we recommend as an amazing add on. We stayed on the MS La Traviata - staff were absolutely fantastic, food five star with so much choice and the cabin was spacious with a veranda over the Nile. Accomodation on land hit the mark too. Most hotels were luxurious - Sonesta in Luxor, the Marriott in Hurghada and Holiday Inn at the Dead Sea were exceptional and made as feel like royalty, beautiful rooms. We relaxed after touring in the pool and outdoor areas in each of these prestigious hotels/ resorts. The Marriott had its own Red Sea Lagoon and island, pure indulgence.

The sites in Egypt exceeded all our dreams, with this tour we got to see everything we had longed to visit. Adding on Abu Simbel and Alexandria is a must. Experiences such as the light show at the Giza Pyramids, sleeping on the overnight train to Luxor, the boat ride with the Nubians to Philae Temple, a camel ride around the pyramids, a night visit to Kom Ombo temple, seeing Tutankhamen laying in his tomb in the Valley of the Kings, hiking in Petra, sleeping in the desert at Wadi Rum and floating in the Dead Sea and just eating at great local restaurants were all highlights.

The only thing that could improve this tour is an extra night in Cairo before heading to Jordan - it was a huge travel day that could be cut in two to make it more bearable, we were all needlessly exhausted that day, then up early to hike Petra.

Our Egyptian trip was excellent MoMo United us as a 'family' and even though some people were travelling on their own, while others were already a family or friend group we all worked well together and looked after each other. MoMo was very informative and engaged us in the history of Egypt making in come alive for us. He balanced our days with historical sites, allowed time for shopping, guided us to best shops and informed us on sensible pricing. Then evenings he always offered to accompany us to a local eating place so that we got local crusine and atmosphere. He made us laugh and he exposed us to the charm and delights of Egypt.

The organisation of the trip was efficient. We were met at the airport and guided through.

The cruise down the Nile was beautiful and completed a life dream for me.

Thank you On The Go and big thank you to MoMo who was so fun, informative and helpful

I didn’t know what to expect going into my trip to Egypt and Jordan. I have only done one group tour before in Peru and I can say with certainty it was nothing like this tour.

From the beginning, booking directly through On The Go, the rep was very responsive and answered all of my questions and queries. She also followed up for the travel documents in a timely manner and ensured everything was complete prior to leaving.

Once we landed in Egypt, the rep at the airport was super helpful and everything went smoothly. The tour itself, however, is what absolutely exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide, Momo, is hands-down the best Egyptologist in Egypt. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, passionate, hilarious, and always put our needs first. He wasn’t afraid to tell us when something was worth it and when something wasn’t worth it, instead of just seeking out commission from selling extra tours. He always went above and beyond. Momo was much more than a tour guide who simply lead us around Egypt, he treated us like we were his family and made our trip the trip of a life time.

The schedule was well-planned. It was the perfect balance between a busy itinerary, packing in everything you would want to see in Egypt, and relaxing. The long sleeper train was actually good because we were able to sleep for 12 hours and get over the jet-lag. The relaxing time on the felucca and on the red-sea were perfect balances to all the site tours. The hotels and transportation used were fabulous.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Egypt to family and friends - I never felt unsafe at any point.

Way to go On The Go! Such a well organised tour with the hard work from our tour guides and the behind the scenes staff not going unnoticed. Being picked up inside the airport by an OTG rep who helped with our visas etc was a great way to start our stress free holiday.

Aamer was our tour guide from Cairo to Luxor. He is so passionate about his country and his job. He is a wonderful story teller with his memorable catch phrase 'can you imagine with me'. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was happy and their needs were met. He could answer any question that was thrown at him and I loved that he treated us all as family. Aamer was awesome.

This tour was simply amazing. I learnt so much, saw so much and did so much! Egypt is a must see, such incredible history and sites that you can actually be inside to get the feeling of really being there thousands of years ago.

Everything was so streamlined, no real delays anytime, our Egyptologist guide Momo was just outstanding really explaining the facts and stories. Highlights for me were the feluccas on the Nile, camel ride at Giza, entering tombs at Valley of the Kings, walking among the ruins, the informative guides, Petra Treasury and the Monastery, Wadi rum, canyoning at the Jordan river and swimming in the Dead Sea. I can not express enough how amazing our trip was, the tour group was great and finally the guides just made our tour. I just want to do it all again. Thanks On the Go. See you next tour.
