Maria was very knowledgeable about places we went. Very easy to get along with, and open to discussing pretty much anything. Took the time to find out things we might like to do during free time, and made sure that we were given the information needed to find the places. I quite enjoyed visiting with her on the trip, and hope that others who take this tour, are as lucky as I was, to get her for a guide.
As for the tour, I personally, would have preferred spending more time in St. Petersburg, and Novgorod (countryside), than in Moscow. It almost seemed as if other than the Kremlin and St. Basil's Cathedral, unless you were doing optional excursions, that was all there was to do there, in relation to the tour. There seemed like so much more to see and do and explore in and around St. Petersburg, with all the churches, palaces, the various canals, and shops and the Hermitage, which was my personal highlight of the tour.”
Our guide Jamal & driver Ali were absolutely wonderful in taking great care of my son & I throughout the visit, amply showing us the renowned Berber / Amazigh hospitality, the sights, sounds & taste of Morocco, and we also got to learn about the history, contemporary politics & languages of the country! All in all, it was a very well-packaged introduction to Morocco & On-the-Go Tour must be very proud of your people on the ground who display such passion & professionalism in their job & strong family spirit with their guests & other colleagues. A few of the hotels could really be better given the claim to be 4-stars (compared to the other packages) even if the caveat was indeed provided that they are local, but it was in fact the smaller & more local ones which were a lot nicer especially our last night at Marrakech where the Princess was such a pretty gem of a Riad right in the heart of Jamaa el-Fnaa that we didn't want to leave!”
