Egypt Traveller Reviews - On The Go Tours

Here are some reviews from our past travellers to Egypt. For more details on each tour, simply click on the tour image.

Hi Rina,

Thank you for arranging our Egypt/UK/Cyprus trip. It all went off without a single hitch.

I said I’d let you know about On the Go Tours. As far as we are concerned they get ten out of ten. We would certainly travel with them again.

Egypt is experiencing a massive downturn in tourist numbers at present which is desperate for them but great for us. Our river cruiser catered for 70 plus people but there were less than 20 on board. We were in a group of seven (all Australians).

The On the Go “Jewel of the Nile” was highly professional, well considered, friendly and well executed. We wanted for nothing. The train trip from Cairo to Luxor and return from Aswan to Cairo was pretty ordinary but we expected that and enjoyed it. The train food was awful so next time I would take my own. This was certainly outside the control of On the Go and was all part of the Egypt experience.

All the arrangements fell in to place magnificently, from meeting and greeting on pre-Day 1, all the touring and right up to final departure at the gates at Cairo airport. Our guide was a four year university graduate in Egyptology, with immense knowledge and the ability to keep it interesting … all in excellent English. The quality of the chosen hotels was excellent and, in fact, the hotel in Cairo (Fairmont Nile City) on the last night with its view of the sun setting over the Nile was the best hotel in which Pauline and I have ever stayed.

Overall, the quality of the whole experience was excellent value for money and Pauline and I would thoroughly recommend On to Go to any potential Egypt tourers. ”

I recently returned from the Road to Jordan tour operated by On-The-Go. I wanted to let you know what an amazing time I had in both Egypt and Jordan.

Alam was our guide through Egypt. He has great knowledge to share with his groups and made our tour so much fun. Everyday seemed more amazing than the next visiting some unbelievable sites. I enjoyed learning from Alam about each of the sites and he was able to answer any questions put to him by the group. We were really well looked after and always felt completely safe and at ease. Alam was very approachable and would help us with any concerns we were having, he always made himself available to us. He offered to help us barter at the markets and made sure we always ate in good restaurants. On our Alexandria day trip Alam practically asked every person walking by for directions to the Church where my friends grandparents were married. He was unwilling to give up, and thank goodness we finally found it, but I do think he went above and beyond what most people would have done to get us there!

Okla guided us through Jordan and he was brilliant also. He knew Petra like the back of his hand and was able to guide us through some amazing hikes. He looked after those that were struggling with the walk, encouraging and supporting them along the way. Okla did everything he could to make sure we were happy and went out of his way to help us fix some problems we were having with our journey back to Cairo. My highlight was definitely our night in Wadi Rum, singing around the fire and star gazing! We had some great laughs and although we had only known him for 4 days we felt just like old friends!

I would encourage anyone considering this trip to book it. I hope that tourism does start to pick up again soon... Two amazing countries not to be missed! Please pass on my thanks to our guides.

Kind regards ”

Could you please post below for us. Thanks

It’s been a lovely, enjoyable occasion visiting Egypt with On The Go Tours. Although our flight was not as enjoyable/entertaining, the holiday package was one of the best so far. Transfers, sites/all transportations, tour guides, hotels, cruise all perfectly arranged.

We were met at the airport by the On The Go Tours representative Sherif, who took us through all the airport arrival facilities. We enjoyed a comfortable drive to our destination hotel Le Meridian Giza. The next day we were met by Egyptologist Mr Osama whose hospitality, kind gesture and knowledge no words could describe or reminisce. All we could say is, thank you for the beautiful, enjoyable time we spent with you in the museum, Cairo, Giza and the pyramids. Thanks so much at the pyramids.

The tour continued to Luxor and further to cruising on the river Nile. We were on the MS Farah the cruise boat for four days which felt like with a big family. What can we say is, well done MS Farah crew. Our sincere thanks to you and appreciation for the prefect work done. Our tour exposed us to horse drawn carriage, felucca sail, and not to mention the temples of which we enjoyed every part. Abu Simbelbolt-on is a must go or do item.

Finally we enjoyed our final day of the tour in a hotel with a very good panoramic view of River Nile, although the hotel is elegant, we would have preferred the initial Le Meridian in Giza owing to the one-to-one personal touch their staff offered. As all things do come to an end, the tour came to an end and we were seen off at the airport by Sherif.

In a nutshell, we would recommend the tour (Jewell of the Nile) offered by On The Go Tours to anybody.

1) Well done On The Go Tours

2) Well done Egyptian people for allowing us to savour such a magnificent history

3) Well done Sherif, Mr Osama, Aaamar and all others

4) Well done MS Farah Crew and Le Meridian team.
