Egypt has long attracted British archaeologists seeking to discover ancient treasures, from the tombs of the Valley of the Kings to King Tutankhamen's iconic death mask. Today, Egypt continues to entice British travellers looking to explore those same wonders with the Pyramids of Giza likely to be top on everyone's list. Luxor, one of the world's greatest open-air museums, would be a close second with its incredible temple complexes and royal tombs. With year-round warm temperatures and daily sunshine, Egypt also satisfies the British love of good weather and what better way to enjoy it than with a cruise down the Nile river.Read More

Egypt Festival Tours
For a holiday in Egypt that's out of the ordinary, consider one of our unique tours that combine the highlights of ancient Egypt with a special dawn visit to Abu Simbel to witness a true spectacle. Our Sun Festival trips coincide with the birthday (21 October) and coronation day (21 February) of King Ramses II when the temple's inner sanctum is illuminated by the sun's ray. With incredible architectural precision, Ramses II had his entire temple carefully angled and oriented for this precise event. read more
The architectural brilliance of the ancient Egyptians: The original Abu Simbel temple was built in the 13th century BC by King Ramses II. With four separate statues depicting Ramses at various stages of his adult life at the temple's entrance, it’s an impressive monument before one even enters. Carved out of the mountainside, the temple’s inner sanctum also has four statues; three of which - Amun-Re, Re-Herakhte and Ramses the god - are illuminated by the sun’s rays twice a year on the sun festival, whilst the statute of Ptah (the god of darkness) remains in the shadows. But the wonders don’t stop there. In the late 1960s, the shoreline of Lake Nasser was in danger of eroding the temple foundations and damaging it permanently. Engineers relocated the temple further up the bank, which means it now aligns with the sun a day later than it did in Ramses' day.

I was wanting to let you know how wonderful our experience was when touring Egypt.
Not only was the whole experience exceptional of seeing the Pyramids, and Temples, Valley of the Kings and everything else in the tour. From the very moment we landed we were greeted and very well looked after, all the way until boarding the plan again to return home.
I would like to also commend Ahmed Halel for his remarkable knowledge, his professionalism on our tour. Also the hospitality and looking after us all. Ahmed made us feel very welcome and made the experience for us as well as the children and very enjoyable one. An experience that we will all remember for ever. ”
I, like a lot of people, was both excited and apprehensive about going to Egypt, a place I had wanted to visit since childhood. Egypt is a fabulous country and the history and sights are beyond imagination one of the highlights of the trip was a visit to Abu Simbel, I had seen pictures however the reality was something else.
We were very fortunate to be with a brilliant tour guide in Mahmoud, we learnt so much about his country and we were also incredibly lucky to be with an amazing group of people.
The first few days of the tour were fairly jam packed with history, we had opted to do the day trip from Cairo to Alexandria, a beautiful city by the sea and well worth a visit. Words cannot describe how it was to see the pyramids and the Sphinx at first hand.
We upgraded to the Nile Cruise, a highlight for me was sitting on the top deck of the ship after dark as it cruised down the Nile, hearing the calls to prayer and the sounds of Africa as we passed. We saw Kom Ombo and Edfu whilst on the ship until we finally disembarked in Luxor. The final few days of the tour were spent in a beach resort in Hurghada, the hotel was luxurious with a private beach and pool.
I must mention how helpful all the staff were from On the Go or hotel staff wherever we stayed and all we were astonished at how fast we were able to transit passport control and baggage reclaim in Cairo on both arrival and departure. ”
First tour that we have ever done. On the go tours really kept us ‘on the go’. We loved Egypt and the the tour. There is so much to see, learn and experience. The unplugged tour gave a good snapshot. Yasser our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Egyptology and was very informative.”
