The tour was amazing. All the historical sites a dream come true. Mo was an excellent tour guide. He knows the history and makes the group feel like family. He was attentive to our needs when we got sick. I had a great time! I didn’t like the train ride it was horrible. They should change this part to fly instead of train. Petra was a unique experience. I still watch my videos and look through my pictures often. I will never forget this trip. Mo, thank you for making it such a wonderful experience, for keeping us laughing and enjoying your company.

I would like to acknowledge the excellent Tour Coordinator Bedo who from the moment we met him at the Cairo Airport to when we departed Egypt to fly to Jordan he did everything possible to make our holiday enjoyable and stress free. He is a credit to your organisation and deserves all the accolades I am sure he receives. Our tour guide Amer, once again is one of a kind, helpful in every way and so knowledgeable it was such a pleasure to have him lead our tour. He was so understanding and patient with one of our fellow travelers that I believe many others would not have tolerated some of the antics displayed. A true professional. These two individuals made our tour an absolute dream holiday.

The only negative experience was the overnight train from Cairo to Aswan. Positively awful, cramped, dirty & the food was inedible..

The overnight train ride was unsanitary, the cabin and entire facilities were filthy and dirty.

Eliminate this part of the tour! It's unhealthy.

An airplane ride is a faster mode of transportation to Aswan. Tourists do not need to experience this awful train ride.

Our tour guide, Amir, was fantastic! He went over and above to make sure that we were happy and got to see and do everything we wanted. He was also very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. Thank you Amir!

The itinerary was great and so was everyone I dealt with at On the Go Tours. Many thanks to all the staff that I connected with during the planning of the trip and during the trip.

My only suggestion would be to make the dinners more authentic by avoiding western style restaurants and going to reputable local restaurants.

Both tour guys Amir in Egypt and G in Jordan were amazing. They cared about our safety, were knowledgeable and super helpful. We had a great time with a small group of people that felt like family, specially on the Egypt leg of the tour. Egypt is the most amazing place I’ve ever been to and I would definitely go back. Accommodations were clean and acceptable, except t for the holiday inn in the Dead Sea. They woke us up at 10 pm to charge us for a meal we had signed up with our room number. They couldn’t wait till the morning ? Egypt is a great place to visit. It’s unfortunately that what most people talk about is the scammers when most people are just trying to live and thrive.

This trip has been one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had. Traveling as a solo female can be intimidating but I found Egypt to be a very safe country and I never felt uncomfortable In any situation. It was beautiful to see the friendships grow in our tour group, and of course it wouldn’t have been the same without our tour guide Amir. Amir went above and beyond to make sure everyone in the group was having the best experience possible and was very knowledgeable on everything. One of the highlights of the trip was the felucca ride, an experience I will never forget. Over all I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore Egypt.

Medo was an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and experienced tour guide. He made our trip fun and we felt as though we gained an understanding of the history and culture of Egypt . He showed terrific people skills, and our group became close and supportive with his interpersonal skills and leadership. Medo was respectful, helpful and I’m sure we would not have enjoyed our trip as much without his guidance.

Tour Add-ons

The tour was amazing. All the historical sites a dream come true. Mo was an excellent tour guide. He knows the history and makes the group feel like family. He was attentive to our needs when we got sick. I had a great time! I didn’t like the train ride it was horrible. They should change this part to fly instead of train. Petra was a unique experience. I still watch my videos and look through my pictures often. I will never forget this trip. Mo, thank you for making it such a wonderful experience, for keeping us laughing and enjoying your company.
