I would just like to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our tour through Egypt & Jordan. The Egypt leg of our tour was very professional as we were met at the airport prior to customs and welcomed and we were breezed through customs without any issue what so ever. this made for a great start to our journey. Our transportation and drivers were of a very high caliber. The tour flowed very well and was very well organized and accommodated for everyone’s wants & needs. I would highly recommend 'On The Go Tours' to friends and family or anyone else that was to enquire.

Our Tour Guide Helal was very knowledgeable and kind and very considerate to everyone’s needs. He spend a lot of his time after hours organizing and fixed any small issues that arouse. We were very impressed and happy with Helal’s effort and professionalism.

Transport to Jordan again went without a hitch and was very easy to navigate with an”On the go” rep meeting us at the airport prior to customs. He very quickly got us onto our transport and off to Petra without a hitch. The Time we spent in Jordan was magnificent and we were very well looked after. Our guide Hameed was a very knowledgeable man and went to great lengths to explain the history and customs of that great country.

We cannot thank 'On The Go Tours' enough for our time that we sent with the 'Road to Jordan' tour. Thank you very much! ”  

Suzie Sharp & Bill Evans • Submitted 5 Sep 2019

What an amazing trip! The King Ramses tour covered all of the must see spots in Egypt. Our guide Momo was very knowledgeable, fun, organised and most of all more than willing to ensure all his guests had a great time by going that extra mile. I couldn’t recommend On the Go Tours or Momo more highly. Thanks for a great time in Egypt!”  

Jenna Bormann • Submitted 4 Sep 2019

Where do I start! The 12 day trip was just amazing. I had Medo as our guide and he just made the whole trip absolutely fantastic. The group I was in were so wonderful and Medo made the whole experience exciting with his knowledge and love for his country. I would of never thought I would be sailing down the Nile in a felucca - that was an experience. Every place we went to had a story and Medo spoke with compassion and respect. Thank you Medo for making this trip a wonderful and unforgettable trip. ”
