Some of our favourites are the age-old pyramids of Giza, Temples of Abu Simbel, the lost city of Petra, the rose-red expanse of the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan, the holy sites of Israel and the rolling dunes of the Sahara in Morocco. And there's plenty more too. To help you start planning that dream holiday, we have picked out some of our recommended hotels and also suggested a number of itineraries in Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Morocco.

Visiting Egypt was an unforgettabke experience, from the pick up at the airport right up to drop off and assistance to get home. From day one I felt safe and at home, welcomed with open arms by our guide, Momo. We were advised of what to expect when visiting places, as well as a reasonable price of goods. When visiting various temples we were given wonderful information, at Philae we even had an imprompto play guided by Momo to help understand where the gods and goddesses fit into the picture. We were treated and made to feel like a temporary family and lasting friendships were formed. I was also given the opportunity to extend my trip and Momo as well as on the go went out of their way to make this happen. I was very sad to leave Egypt and the tour as it became a second home and family. The sites were breathtaking, the people were so welcoming and I would recommend this tour to anyone”

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!”
