Europe Tours and Sailing Trips

Discover the best of Europe from north to south and east to west with our range of escorted group tours and bespoke tailor-made holidays.

Europe really is a travel destination that has it all - epic history, artistic treasures, archaeological marvels, sophisticated culture and divine food. Whether it's the romantic castles and grand churches of Eastern Europe or the Roman ruins and modern architecture of Western Europe, visiting this part of the world will leave you in utter awe. And from the dramatic fjords and glaciers of Scandinavia in the north, to the picture-perfect islands and scenic coastline of the Mediterranean in the south, it's also a region of diverse and mesmerising landscapes. So it's little wonder that Europe remains the world's most visited continent.

We offer a range of guided group tours, sailing holidays and short stays, covering both well-known sites and hidden gems, giving you a true flavour of the countries you visit. The most difficult decision of course, is choosing where to visit first. We hope to welcome you on a tour of Europe soon.

Recep (Reggie) our tour guide made an amazing tour all the more amazing! He shared his extraordinary knowledge of Turkey's history, both modern and ancient, in a way that was accessible to all participants: well paced, informative and witty. He is a great story teller, bringing to life characters of legend and history and able to place them in the contexts of the landscapes we were passing through and the historic sights we visited.

Reggie is an excellent people manager. He invited us to travel with open minds and open hearts, and when this became a difficulty for some participants, he handled the situation quietly and discreetly. We enjoyed his sense of humour and his professional care for us as 'his' group.

We felt privileged to travel with Reggie and would recommend him as a top tour guide on a top tour. ”

Tour guide was excellent. I would suggest that clients should all buy a local sim card (300rb) so as to stay in touch and that if they use atms for money to draw out enough for the tour costs and some spending money at the airport on arrival; at least for St. Petersburg at atms are scarce.

Visit to Novgorod should have been a day trip, leaving at 7.30. and then the bullet train to Moscow the next day. We wasted half a day travelling there, the full day in the city and then arrived in Moscow at 4.30 tired with a day tour ... not good.

The Faberge museum, near the hotel, is a must see and should be included with a guide from the museum.

The group was great fun, including snowball fights, the guide was very relaxed and that helped the social cohesion but the guide did say it was one of the best groups she had had from that aspect.”  

Richard Skipper • Submitted 25 Jan 2019

I was fortunate enough to have Reggie Aydin as my tour guide for this trip, and he was simply exceptional. I have never met someone so passionate about their work, their country, and their history. Every day, Reggie brought a professional enthusiasm to sites we know he had seen hundreds of times, and yet he still brought them alive for us.

Reggie’s subject knowledge was simply awe-inspiring too. To have someone so highly educated guiding us around such fascinating sites was an absolute honour. That, coupled with his warm and patient personality truly made the tour something special.

It is a credit to On the Go to have guides that are this outstanding. I have spoken very highly of my experiences since returning home and will continue to do so. ”
