Egypt: Safe & Awe-Inspiring! This tour was a highlight among many years and many countries travelled. Our guide, Momo, brought the tour to another level with his historical knowledge, guiding expertise and fantastic personality! Right from the beginning, Momo worked skillfully to bond our group of 14 people together, as he was acutely aware that the social dynamics of a group can make such a difference in the experience of the travellers. In fact, 1-month post-tour, we are all still in contact with each other and Momo, on a regular basis. On more occasions than I can count, Momo far exceeded his responsibilities as a tour guide to help us, educate us and even entertain us, long after the tour day was over. Momo gave us many wonderful opportunities to experience the authentic culture of the Egyptian people, in a way that my husband and I simply could not have done on our own. The ancient historical sites are incredibly awe-inspiring. Don't miss out on Abu-Simbel, which is an add-on and make sure to pay the extra fee to access the tombs at Valley of the Kings - these were the best highlights of the trip! We also paid extra to access the mummy rooms at the museum in Cairo, which was definitely worth the money. Also, we ended our tour by going to the Red Sea for a few days, which was stunning. FYI: markets are hard to navigate on your own and often don't feel worth the hassle - and I'm an avid market seeker. Dress for Women: in Cairo, cover your shoulders and legs to avoid unwanted attention (long dresses or pants). Outside of Cairo, it is fine to wear capris or medium - long shorts. I would avoid sleeveless tops or tight clothing. At the Red Sea, anything goes. Finally and most importantly, Egypt is SAFE. Media paints a very different picture of the safety and stability of the country and the people themselves. Many people gave us concerned looks and comments when we booked a trip to Egypt and we weren't entirely sure what to expect either. At no point did we ever feel unsafe, even when we left the tour and were on our own. Unfortunately, Egypt's economy has suffered greatly, due to this misinformation. Overall, I would recommend Egypt, Momo and On The Go Tours to anyone!
Haytham and the Egypt unplugged tour was an unbelievable exposure and education on Egypt and all that the country has to offer. The combination of organized sites in addition to the personalized touches added to the daily outings made for a wholesome and welcoming experience. Our tour guide was more than that, he was professional, incredibly devoted to his country and its history and beyond knowledgeable. He was available for assistance day and night and even helped us after the official tour was over. I would recommend on the go tours to all my friends and family and we will be visiting again.
