We had an absolutely amazing time in Turkey thanks to On the Go Tours and our Guide Recep, the sites we saw were incredible. We want to thank Recep for being so good to us and making this trip worth every minute we were on it. For his expertise in Turkish history and for always doing his best in answering all our questions, no matter what came up, Recep handled it with professionalism that was second to none. Now finally coming home from our second On the Go tour - Road to Jordan, which we did after the Turkey tour, I think I can speak for all that were on the trip, that we absolutely loved Recep and how he looked after us all and how we all felt safe on this trip. I am so glad I didn't listen to all the doubters about Turkey not being safe and went to see that beautiful country. ”

Spending 10 Days in Turkey with On The Go Tours is a travelling adventure I will never forget. What a great time I had! Firstly the people on our tour, including our wonderful Tour guide Recep 'Regie' Aydın made it such an enjoyable experience. I travelled with my mum, and being 1 of 6 other multi-generational pairs on the tour, it was evident from Day 1 that we were going to share our time with an amazing group of like minded people.

Recep, our guide's knowledge on history, geography, culture and organisational skills allowed us to gain an insight into what a beautiful country Turkey is, and you could tell that his sole focus was to ensure we had the greatest touring experience with On The Go.This was evident in the way he handled every aspect of the tour from checking into our hotels, and ensuring he did his best for us to skip the crowds on sightseeing visits. Not to mention he was so much fun, we always had a laugh with him!

I have done many bus tours in my time, and it goes without saying that I have never felt in more safe hands that with our bus driver Ali as well. He was so attentive and his driving skills were excellent, never making us feel in danger, and he kept the coach in great condition to ensure the comfort of the passengers were always there.

Turkey is a beautiful country, full of history, culture, and the Turkish People were very welcoming and friendly to visitors. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to see this part of the world for myself. ”

I had the most wonderful time on the tour! The itinerary was fantastic. The inclusions were such amazing value. Highlight was definitely the Hot Air Ballooning in Cappadocia. What made the trip was our incredible guide Reggie. He was there for anything we needed and filled us with knowledge and laughter. I would happily book another tour.”
