Taking a drive through the busy market town of Karak under the towering shadows of the Karak Crusader Castle, descending 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.

For departures between April and October we’ll head up the King’s Highway to Wadi Mujib. We’ll embark on a moderate –paced two hour trek along the Siq Trail. Measuring 500 metres in depth and spanning 4 kilometres across, the impressive Wadi Mujib is one of Jordan’s most remarkable natural features. 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 was the best experience I've had traveling, ever. I'm in Greece right now, and I want to go back to Egypt, back to Jordan. Momo was a phenomenal guide, speaking To us instead of At us. He called us his family, and we felt, very much, like a family. His passion for Egypt was so clear, and the way he explained myths and current Egyptian culture were clear and inspiring. I also took the Cruise and found Aamer to be wonderful, a spiritual counter to Momo's playful side. I loved all of this. When we went to Jordan, the guide Ogla was great as well, but Momo & Aamer were out of this world great. My highlights were the camel ride at the Pyramids, the temple of Isis at Philae, the cruise down the Nile from Luxor, the balloon ride there, the mule ride through Petra, the drive through Wadi Rum, and the site of Jesus' babtism. I know I will go back to Egypt, and I plan to travel again with On the Go.

As a young boy I all way's dreamed of going to Egypt and Jordan, but with all the unrest I kept putting it off. Then I decided I'm going or ill never, go and I'm so glad that I did . Egypt and her people are so wonderful and kind hearts made me feel so welcome, not once did I feel uncomfortable, unsafe or unwelcome. I met our guide MoMo all I can say about him is passion he loves his history his country and life he brings his job to life and you see the history, and culture through his eyes. Aamer Ibrahim Luxor a deep spiritual and loving guide that loves his job takes you on a journey off the past and present and makes you feel like your apart of his life. Between the 2 guides nothing is left out or nothing is to small to be taken of the beatin track out to banana island to see how the real people live, meet the locals, visit the spice markets, and sit having coffee in the streets watching the hustle and bustle of Egypt go buy. These two guides are amazing in there own rites, they amazed me left me in awe and changed the way I see that part of the world. To anyone wanting to visit Egypt I'll say do it don't listen to the media or to friends it is as safe as you being at home. I fell in love with the country its people and way of life. Thank you egypt Thank you MoMo, Thank you Aamer Ibrahim Luxor for making me feel alive and my experience and holiday special. 😂😂😂

What a fast-paced trip! I did so much during these two weeks - riding a camel at the Pyramids, swimming in the River Nile, hot air ballooning over the Valley of the Kings, snorkelling in the Red Sea, sleeping under the stars in Wadi Rum, and floating in the Dead Sea. That's eithout even mentioning all of the temples, historical sites and evenings sitting in local cafes. Momo was our guide in Egypt. He's brilliant, very knowledgeable and passionate about his country and its history. He's a qualified Egyptologist as well so really knows his stuff. We had a group of 16 in Egypt. Hotels were decent and this part of the tour was packed with lots of temples and some long travel days, but there's no real way around that. Many of the group disliked the overnight sleeper train but I thought it was fine. Small, two-person cabins with a bunk bed and sink. A bit tight with the luggage but not too bad and certainly much better than the sleeper train I used in India! We all opted to do the Abu Simbel excursion and despite the long drive to get there, we all agreed that it was thoroughly worth it - so impressive. I also did the hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings which was excellent and I would recommend. The felucca was really relaxing and comfortable (with the exception of the pillows which were rock hard). The felucca and the days in Hurgada are necessary to relax a bit from the busy pace of the tour. In Hurgada I did an optional full day snorkelling trip which was really good, but a half day would also have worked. It took a long time because the boat has to travel to a couple of different dive sites at reefs. The travel day from Hurgada to Amman is a really long day. We left Hurgada at 4am and arrived at our hotel in Wadi Musa (for Petra) at 11pm.

In Jordan our guide was Ogla who was good as well. Petra was incredible - definitely worth going back on the second day as there wasn't time to do everything in one day. The walk up to the Monastery was well worth doing for some stunning views. It was my birthday that day and Ogla arranged a cake for me at dinner, courtesy of On The Go Tours. He also bought me a scarf the following day as a gift which was an unexpected and lovely gesture. I really appreciated both of these. Wadi Rum was fantastic and I took advantage of the opportunity to skip the tents and sleep out under the stars at our Bedouin camp under an incredible blanket of stars. The food was great and there was a Bedouin musician as well. The toilets there were the best we saw anywhere despite being out in the desert! The optional canyoning at Wadi Mujib was enormous fun and was a major reason why I chose this tour over those offered by competitors.

Some advance warning that not everyone on the tour will be doing Road to Jordan would have been appreciated.

Mido Alam is the best guide we have had on any of our world travels. His knowledge and experience of Egypt was outstanding. He was friendly, organised, professional and a really nice person who made our trip so memorable. We wish we could have stayed longer. We have great pleasure in saying we will recommend your company your country and also Alam to our family and friends as a memorable safe and beautiful country to visit.

This tour met and far exceeded any expectation I had. Egypt and Jordan are amazing countries and our guides were very good. Alam was perfect... kind, attentive and very knowledgeable. He was a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond. We were a group of older travellers and he was exactly what we needed. We have all travelled extensively and have our " favourites trips". Ever person on our tour said that this tour was the best they had ever had and Egypt was their new favourite place. I will be taking my partner on this exact tour in 2019.... we will ensure that we travel with Alam again. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime.

Having been on a number of tours I understand the importance of having a great tour guide, Momo is the best I have ever had!

The way that Momo engaged the tour using a range of different techniques to connect with the group was genius. His willingness to go over and above by spending time with the group after hours to gain more of a cultural experience was invaluable and I truly appreciate the effort he put in!

Momo was amazing! Words cannot describe how fantastic he is at his job. We truly felt like he had our best interest at heart and wanted to make sure we were safe, having fun and absorbing all here was to learn.

Momo had a few difficult people in the group who simply didn't listen. We noticed that he always made sure they were accounted for and understood the Dos and Donts.

He is obviously very passionate about Egypt, tourism and sharing all the amazing things about the country. He became our friend, not just our tour guide.

We have gone on many tours before with Cosmos, Globus and others and Momo is by far THE best we have ever had.

The trip would have been completely different if we had a 'dud' guide. We would see other groups with their guides and we didn't feel like they were having an amazing time like we were. We learnt so much and Momo's knowledge is unbelievable!

We were very lucky to have Momo but On The Go is even more lucky to have such an amazing asset in Momo!

I cannot speak more highly of our tour guide in Egypt, Dino. The trip through Egypt was spectacular and Dino was the perfect tour guide. He knew so much about all the places we visited, answered every question and made the whole trip seamless and safe. I would absolutely book w/On the Go again and, more importantly, recommend Dino and the Egypt tour specifically to family and friends in the United States. Trip highlights that I loved: the Felucca Nile River cruise (Mohammed, our boat captain was fantastic! We spent 2 1/2 days swimming in the Nile; sailing the river and visiting a Nubian home and getting to know the family. Abu Simbel is NOT to be missed! Luxor/Valley of the Kings lived up to all of my expectations and Luxor Temple at Night just blew my mind.

Words can’t describe what an extraordinary experience our Road to Jordan trip was. I’ve travelled a lot, with many different tour companies, and I have to say my experience on this trip (particularly in Egypt) was by far and away the best I’ve ever had.

Our Egypt guide Momo was so passionate about his country, and excited to share his vast knowledge of history with us. You couldn’t help but be swept up in his enthusiasm! He always went out of his way to ensure everyone in our group was comfortable and well briefed on our schedule, which was a little hectic (but that’s why I chose this trip, to see as much of Egypt and Jordan as possible, and it was worth the occasional long travel day!). Even with the more difficult-to-please guests (every group has one or two!), he was always patient, kind, calm, and attentive. He handled everything extremely well and always went the extra mile for our group.

Our Jordan guide Eid was equally as knowledgeable and is possibly the kindest man I’ve ever met, it was a real pleasure to travel with him. He was especially good at interacting with each person in the group and ensuring his pace worked for all of us. I saw far too many incredible sites to choose a favourite, though highlights included a hot air balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings, relaxing in Hurghada, and of course seeing the gorgeous Petra in person.

One thing in particular I’d love to give a shout-out to is the quality of the hotels that On the Go chose for us: They were wonderful! Much swankier than any trip I’ve taken before. It was lovely to have such beautiful, luxurious rooms to relax in after a long day of exploring temples and tombs. The food was excellent as well. I met so many fantastic people in our group and we’ll definitely stay in touch (in fact some of us are already planning our next trip together).

If you’re considering this tour, or any others in this region, please don’t listen to any negative comments you may get from friends or family (‘it’s unsafe’, etc). At no point whatsoever did I feel unsafe during this trip. The people we met were so friendly, we saw so many awesome sights, and we were always well taken care of by our guides and drivers. I will definitely return someday!

Tour Bolt-ons

Enhance your trip with these amazing added extras and bolt-ons

This was the best experience I've had traveling, ever. I'm in Greece right now, and I want to go back to Egypt, back to Jordan. Momo was a phenomenal guide, speaking To us instead of At us. He called us his family, and we felt, very much, like a family. His passion for Egypt was so clear, and the way he explained myths and current Egyptian culture were clear and inspiring. I also took the Cruise and found Aamer to be wonderful, a spiritual counter to Momo's playful side. I loved all of this. When we went to Jordan, the guide Ogla was great as well, but Momo & Aamer were out of this world great. My highlights were the camel ride at the Pyramids, the temple of Isis at Philae, the cruise down the Nile from Luxor, the balloon ride there, the mule ride through Petra, the drive through Wadi Rum, and the site of Jesus' babtism. I know I will go back to Egypt, and I plan to travel again with On the Go.
