Abdulleh was a superb guide and both of us were very impressed. He was friendly, patient, knowledgeable and professional, with excellent English and a nice gentle sense of humour. Morocco was wonderful but Abdulleh made the holiday very special and we thank him for that.

Hussain was the driver and, although he spoke no English, he was also very professional and friendly, and an excellent driver. We felt very safe with him at the wheel, particularly when crossing the High Atlas with hairpin bends looking down onto terrifying drops . IRather him than me!

The guide in Fes (Imrah) was also excellent. He knew the place like the back of his hand, and obviously was well-known locally because lots of people said "Hi" to him as we walked through the Medina.

As for the tour, we would have preferred more free time during the day. The general feeling among the group seemed to be "We've seen enough today. I'm tired and I really don't want to troop around another tourist site." But we realize that On The Go want to give customers their money's-worth, and don't want to leave them feeling short-changed.

The hotels were generally good but the Riad Reada in Fes was dreadful. Very beautiful place, but everything was sub-standard. The room-heater didn't work (I walked down three times to Reception to complain and each time they said someone would come and fix it but they didn't). The shower spurted water from the hose, not from the shower-rose. Truly awful. Either Riad Reada needs a new owner or a new Manager. If I was "On the Go Tours" I'd use a different hotel or insist they get their act together.

Apart from that, it was a great holiday, and we'll certainly use On the Go again.”

Review

Our adventure started in 2019 when we sought to travel – two school friends from the junior days. We both had Egypt as a bucket list item and discovered that it would be possible to take this adventure to the next level in January 2020. The research began… the travel agents contacted. We asked 100’s of questions and were fed information and sadly a little mis-information too (travel agent was not on point with all the details 😢!

It was our first trip with On the Go Tours, not to mention our first as travel companions. This too compounded by people such as consulates, social media and friends cautioning us against the safety aspect of traveling to Egypt. We did the King Tutankhamen 9 nights 10 day tour of Egypt and were delighted to find that not only were we able to check the bucket list item off but also were safe and experienced the tour with little cause for concern.

On the Go Tours representative met us at Cairo airport and assisted with the acquisition of the e-visa. Then he escorted us to meet the transport to the Hotel for check-in. Our first hotel was the Holiday Inn Maadi – I was very impressed with their service and cleanliness.

Ahmed (On the Go Tours – Operations Manager) met with us at the hotel, advised us of the land arrangement costs, and tip kitty arrangements.

Later in the day, we met our Egyptologist Mohamed Saiid (MoMo) who during the tour passionately and enthusiastically took us through the history, the architecture, the politics and egos of various Pharaohs and their family members.

MoMo has a unique approach to guiding a tour group by making us part of his “family” – he did this ensuring the as at all times knew the call meant we needed to focus on him – he certainly made sure we experienced both the local cuisine and cultures as well as the tourist hot markets and shops.

Tour Highlights:

- Great Pyramid and Khafre’s pyramid at Giza – seeing a number of other pyramids in the plateau, exploring the Necropolis of Saqqara (stepped pyramid) and visiting the Egyptian Museum to see a vast array of treasures as well as King Tut's tomb, mask and thrown.

- Although the overnight train was played down on the scale of enthusiasm it was still a hoot and added to the adventure

- Aswan - take a leisurely boat trip to Agilika Island to explore the romantic Philae Temple, Check in to Aswan Tolip

- Nile felucca cruising - sail the River Nile on board a traditional felucca and spend two nights on board

- Coach to Luxor

- Luxor - roam around the colossal Temple of Karnak and take an optional tour of the beautifully illuminated Luxor Temple at night

- Kom Ombo - visit the Nile side Temple of Kom Ombo

- Luxor West Bank – (Thebes) discover exquisite tombs in the Valley of the Kings, the towering - Colossi of Memnon and the beautiful Temple of Queen Hatshepsut

- Luxor to Cairo over night train

On our last day and a half in Cairo, we had a free to do whatever we wished. This provided a chance to explore Cairo city without papa bear “MoMo”

We did felt safe – the people of Cairo and Egypt are as helpful and hospitable as possible – if approached for directions and info they were always friendly and tried their best to help.

Thank you to the people of Egypt for your warm hospitality.

I look forward to visiting the New Egyptian Museum and hopefully next time get a chance to see Abu Simbel and do a Nile Cruise.”

Where to start. Absolutely incredible tour. From the moment you get picked up at the airport to when you get dropped off at the airport. Customer service is a top priority with everyone I met. Through the streets of Cairo, to the sleeper car, Aswan, Luxor and Hurghada, everything was safe, secure. Of course the sites were amazing, camel ride in Giza, Egyptian museum, sleeper car with my Aussie roomie (best of luck Hayden). Abu Simbal in Aswan, a fantastic felucca ride with an amazing crew. Karnac Temple in Luxor, Valley of the Kings, Temple of Hapshepsut, Luxor temple.

The shops we were taken to were absolutely amazing! From jewellery to perfumery to a workshop for fine stone pieces.

The food was great everywhere we went, all local restaurants if you were up for it. I highly recommend. Turkish Coffee and Sisha! Oh my!

I believe this trip, with a great group of Aussies, South Africans and those darn nice Canadians, was made so much better by our tour guide...Momo! His passion for his country and its history is straight from the heart. Egypt is a better country having Momo be a representative. Not enough can be said about Momo, he’s awesome! I just left the trip, and miss everything already. Thanks for everything Momo. Miss you bro. ”
