Israel Traveller Reviews

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

Great tour covering the highlights of Israel. Itinerary worked well and didnt feel rushed as we were a small group of 16 people. The guides Patrick and Ditza were both very knowledgeable, friendly and patient with the group. Would recommend staying an extra 2 days in Jerusalem after the group tour finishes to spend more time in the Old City as there is so much to see.”

After recently completing the Pyramids, Petra and Promised Lands tour, I can definitely say that Egypt was the unexpected highlight of the trip. From the moment I arrived in Cairo and was whisked away to a Pyramids by Night show, I loved every minute. It's not just the beautiful ancient sites and culture, but the locals and the heart of the country that make it so special. I was significantly younger than anyone else on the trip but never felt out of place, and I truly believe that I've made lifelong friendships from the tour. If anyone has ever considered visiting Egypt, I would wholeheartedly recommend to do it- and with On The Go.

Every day and experience felt like an adventure that was being undertaken with my best friends. I loved every minute- the Red Sea was so beautiful and an amazing opportunity to relax at the end of the trip- the only negative was I would've loved more time there. Another massive highlight was the felucca. The crew were fantastic and always friendly and helpful. They achieved the perfect balance of making us all feel right at home while still feeling like we were having an authentic experience (as well as serving up the best food on the entire trip).

Philae Temple, set beautifully against the Nile, was another of my favourite sights that we visited. The entire temple and history of the gods portrayed there was given context by starting the day with a story acted out by all of us, directed by our guide, Momo. This new understanding of what we were seeing allowed all the carvings around the temple to have much more significance and meaning to them.

I also need to specifically commend Momo on his management and delivery of the Egypt section of the tour. He is the perfect example of why to do a tour as opposed to solo travel. He continually demonstrated his extensive knowledge in everything Egypt related and was always passionate and creative in it's delivery. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him, and he consistently went out of his way to do whatever he could to make everyone feel at home, using local connections and insider knowledge to show us the true Egypt that not everyone might experience. Never once did I feel uneasy or unsafe and was continually shown how much he genuinely cared about everyone on the trip. I would (and already have) recommended On The Go specifically so people can experience Egypt and it's beauty through Momo's eyes.”

Love love loved it! You have to go! I had decided to spend my birthday on this trip and what a great decision that was!! Thank you Momo for your dedication in educating us and creating a passion I am sure we all discovered for Egypt. We felt safe, spoilt and very welcomed in all the places we visited. We had waited many years to do a trip like this and it exceeded expectation. To our other wonderful guides in Jordan and Israel who's experience and knowledge left me wanting to know as much as possible about these wonderful places "Thank you". You all worked tirelessly to support us and make sure we got the full experience from information to any requests we had day and night. From pyramids and camels to sheesha and falafel. The places you will see, the people you will meet the highlights and nightlights are what this tour is all about. We have made lifelong friends and Momo thank you again for showing us your world as a guide but most of all as one of those lifelong friends. ”
