Why over 30s choose On The Go Tours
With over 20 years’ experience running group tours across the world, we take the hassle out of planning your holiday. Our expert team can help you find the perfect trip, while our experienced guides will be there on the ground to show you the highlights of each destination.
Our group tours cater for everyone from aged 18 to those over 70, but with 34% aged 21-40 you're sure to be in the company of like-minded people. Your fellow travellers will also be of a range of nationalities, travelling with partners, friends or as solo travellers.
We employ passionate, local guides on our group tours, who help really bring each destination to life. In fact, for many of our travellers, the guide is one of the highlights of their trip. You'll learn all about the history and culture of a destination, as well as gain lots of useful local tips.
Alongside 3-5* hotels, our group tours include a range of authentic accommodation. From historic havelis in India, to Berber camps in Morocco and traditional ryokans in Japan. Most hotel information is available before you book, so you know where you'll be spending your nights.
Airport arrival and departure transfers are often included on our tours. As well as travelling by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicles, we like to give our travellers a taste of local forms of transport too. These include tuk-tuks, rickshaws, boats, trains and much more.
All our group tours combine guided sightseeing with free time to explore at your own pace or simply relax on the beach. We also offer a range of add ons, perfect for if you have extra time at the start or end of your trip and want to experience more of what the destination has to offer.
Whether it's a local school visit in India, cycling in Vietnam or sleeping under the stars in the Sahara, our tours are packed with authentic experiences. These allow you to truly immerse yourself in each destination you visit and give you some incredible memories too.
Great Group Sizes
All group sizes range by destination, however our tours have an average size of 16-18 travellers with many lasting friendships made on these trips. This small size means you'll really get to know the people you're travelling with while still enjoying a group experience.
No Single Supplements
Many of our group tours don't have compulsory single supplements, meaning if you're travelling on your own and happy to be paired with another solo traveller of the same sex, we'll match you up. If you'd rather have your own room, you can still pay the supplement to guarantee this.

Our tours offer a mix of active sightseeing, where you’ll be exploring on foot, with just enough free time to relax. A moderate level of fitness is required for most tours, however, if you’re considering joining one of our Active tours such as a trekking holiday, then a higher standard of fitness is needed. Speak to a member of our team if you’re questioning if a trip would be right for you.
Will I have to pay more as a solo traveller?
The majority of our group tours don't have a complusory single supplement, meaning that if you're happy to share with another solo traveller of the same sex - we'll pair you up. In most cases, even if we aren't able to pair you up, you still won’t need to pay the single supplement. If you would prefer to have a room to yourself then this option is available.

We use well-located 3-4* hotels on most of our group tours, with the occasional 5* property in destinations offering great value for money.

In places such as the Sahara or the Wadi Rum, we also offer the opportunity to stay at permanent desert camps.
I don't want to travel with a group. Do you offer private options?
If you like the look of our group tour itineraries but would prefer to travel without the group, then you can opt for our Private Tour Supplement. This means you'll be travelling in private transport with the services of our local English-speaking guides all to yourself.

We offer tailor-made holidays to the majority of our destinations and our expert team can put together the perfect itinerary to suit you and whoever you are travelling with. You choose hotels to suit your budget, the sights you want to see and the pace of travel. Best of all, there’s no minimum or maximum numbers when it comes to private groups.
