Everything was amazing! I could not highly recommend On the Go Tours enough. What a superb, tour. Everything was just so well organised. We were treated to 5-star accommodation and the internal flights were excellent. We had a small group of 8 in all plus our archeologist! We all just got along so so well which made the trip even more memorable. The knowledge from our tour guide Yasser was brilliant and he looked after us so well. There was absolutely nothing that I could honestly say was negative. We were treated so respectfully and at every stage of the trip, someone was there to either walk us through security at the airport, sort our visas, organise our transport to hotels and to various sites we visited. It really was a dream come true to visit Egypt and On the Go Tours made the experience seamless. I never thought I was a tour person, however, after this experience, I would definitely use them again for those countries that can be tricky to do on your own. I also thought it was great value for money. The Nile River cruise was excellent. The food was brilliant and varied every night. One thing I would say was I am so thrilled we requested to fly to Luxor and fly from Aswan to Cairo. The others did the sleeper train and I believe it was not a great experience. Luckily we made that request! I hope this feedback is helpful. ”

It was a life changing experience. All the things we saw and experienced were amazing and we fell in love with the country and would love to return.

Momo is the best tour guide one can wish for. He is extremely knowledgeable, has a great personality and we really enjoyed his enthusiasm and passion for his job and the tourists.”  

Rietha Matthee • Submitted 18 Feb 2020

Travelling to Egypt with On the Go Tours was truly an outstanding experience! When we landed in Cairo, we were greeted by an On the Go rep who made the visa/customs process a breeze.

From wandering the back streets of Cairo, seeing mummies at the Egyptian Museum, learning about the Gods of Ancient Egypt at Philae Temple, cruising down the Nile on a luxurious cruise ship, and being awestruck by Abu Simbel, the Valley of the Kings, and Karnak Temple Complex, this adventure was truly a trip of a lifetime.

We also came to appreciate various uniquely Egyptian goods by visiting a perfume factory, Papyrus Museum, Egyptian Cotton store, spice market, local jeweller, and Alabaster workshop.

And for the most important part, our guide and Egyptologist, Momo! Treating us like his “family,” Momo did an outstanding job at sharing his immense knowledge and contagious passion for his country and its history. Always finding ways to get us excited, appreciate the culture and even treating us to authentic Egyptian cuisine, Momo really made this the incredible experience that it was!

Heading into the trip, we certainly received concerns from friends and family who were shocked to hear our choice of destination and questioned the safety of the country. This made us feel a bit apprehensive upon departure, but now reflecting back on the experience we had, there was absolutely no need for this! At no point during the trip did we feel unsafe. Traveling with a tour group like On the Go and a guide like Momo alleviated any concerns we might have had.”

Frequently asked questions about our touring holidays in Egypt

Will I see the Great Pyramids?

You most certainly will. The world's last remaining ancient wonder has attracted travellers to Egypt throughout the ages and we include this must-see attraction on all our tours. You'll also see the famous Sphinx with the option to ride a camel close to the Pyramids and enter the interior of Khufu. The day of sightseeing also includes the ancient necropolis of Saqqara, home to Zhoser’s step pyramid.

What options do you offer to cruise the Nile River?

On our tours that travel as far south as Aswan, we include a two night felucca cruise as standard. Feluccas are traditional wooden sail boats with mattresses on the deck where you'll sleep at night. A support vessel accompanies the felucca with an on-board toilet and shower. There is always the option to upgrade to a 5 star Nile cruise, which offers well–appointed, outward facing cabins with air-conditioning and private bathrooms. Alternatively, our Jewel of the Nile tour features a 5 star, three night cruise as standard.

Is it safe to visit Egypt?

It's impossible to deem a country safe when you have no control over events but our tours have been departing as scheduled ever since the initial travel ban that surrounded Arab Spring. Recent events have not been directed at tourists and the popular sightseeing area along the Nile has no travel restrictions in place. The FCO advises that there is a heightened risk of terrorism in Egypt but that same advice is also applied to Belgium and France. In other words, Egypt is no unsafer than European destinations during these uncertain times. Consult our Egypt Travel Advice page for up-to-date information on the security situation in Egypt.

I want to include a visit to Petra in neighbouring Jordan - is this possible?

If you want to explore more of the region's ancient wonders, we offer a number of tours that combine Egypt with Jordan and even Israel. Ranging from 12 to 18 days, these multi-country combo tours feature the highlights of both countries including the Rose City of Petra, the otherworldly Dead Sea and the remarkable Wadi Rum. Browse our full collection of Egypt tours for more details.

How big are your tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?

Our average group size is around 14 passengers and you'll be travelling with an eclectic mix of English-speaking internationals. You can expect a wide range of ages from those in their 20s to those in their 60s or even 70s. On average though the age hovers somewhere around the early to mid 40s.

What is the standard of hotels on your trips?

You'll be staying in 4-5 star accommodation in Egypt with a mix of modern properties and grand, classical buildings that are well-known. Our hotels have been chosen for their great locations, amenities and comfort.

What sort of transport do you use?

For transfers between our hotels and the local sites we travel by private, modern air-conditioned vehicles. This includes airport transfers too. You'll also be travelling by 1st class overnight sleeper train between Cairo and Luxor/Aswan. For more information on the sleeper train in Egypt, check out our Top Travel Tips page. Between Luxor and Aswan you'll cruise the Nile by felucca for a taste of navigation that has been used in these parts for centuries.

When is the best time to visit Egypt for general sightseeing?

Visit between September and April for the most comfortable temperatures and ideal sightseeing conditions. Between March and August temperatures are high and the heat dry. You could consider going for the bi-annual Abu Simbel Sun Festival, which takes place in February and October each year. Not only is the weather great at these times of year but it means you can also coincide your trip with this special event. For more information see our best time to visit Egypt page.
