Tanzania tour reviews

Scoring an average traveller rating of 4.66 out of 5 based on 32 recent reviews — See All Tanzania Reviews

Literally the most amazing experience of my life, joined 2 tours across the the experience and both were unreal. The crew on the trucks are absolutely fantastic, really knowledgeable guide, wonderful cook and a safe and accurate driver. More importantly they encouraged the group to create such a family unit that my friend and I both cried all the way to the airport because we had to leave them. The experience itself was an amazing mix of beaches, wildlife and falls and the itinerary provided was absolutely correct. Would recommend this trip to anyone and I certainly will be using on the go in the future”

Our guide was superb, he was honest, considerate and full of excellent advice on travelling through the areas we were going. In the same way our cook, Peter was fantastic - every meal was exceptionally good and the team was completed by a fantastic driver Peterson, who made sure that we were always comfortable on the bus, despite the pot holes. We visited some fantastic places and the included game drives and activities were excellent - the local guides used were always top quality.

The long days driving through Tanzania were challenging, although we were expecting this but leaving one place in the dark and arriving in the dark at the next, travelling all day on two consecutive days was tedious. ”  

Lisa Cashmore • Submitted 30 Jul 2019

We had a marvellous time with our guide, cook and driver. We formed a lasting bond. I found Chris to be very very knowledgeable and always on top of everything we needed to do during our tour. He helped us out even before being asked and was full of fun and joined in our games and music and stories and laughter.

This is my second trip with On the Go tours and both have been fabulous. ”

Safari and Beach
The perfect holiday combination

From the vast plains of the Serengeti where lions roam to the incredible natural amphitheatre of the Ngorongoro Crater that plays host to the Big 5 and then some, Tanzania is one of Africa's top safari destinations and with the tropical paradise of the Zanzibar archipelago off the coast it's also a top choice for a wildlife and beach holiday combination for sun, sea and safari.
