Our group tours to the Indian Subcontinent are led by expert and passionate local tour guides who will ensure your holiday is fun and hassle-free from start to finish. Tour group sizes in India typically range from 15 to 20 travellers and are much smaller in Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan. Most tours have no single supplements, and for the few that do, we’ll do our best to match you up with another solo traveller.

the trip was fantastic, i really enjoyed it and will be using On the Go Tours again. I felt well looked after and enjoyed the company of the fellow travellers. ”

Excellent tour informative active and enjoyable.”  

Steve Beresford • Submitted 19 Sep 2018

Hi ,

Just wanted to provide some feed back from our recent tour.

It was certainly a trip of the life time for both me and my wife.

One of those ‘buck list’ opportunities that went off without a hitch.

We'd enjoyed all of the tour immensely.

But the star was certainly the Tour Director.

Two thumbs up to Jusuf.

The whole trip was very well organized and managed by Jusuf, from the very first minute I'd met him in Delhi to sadly the end of our trip. In all he took extremely good care of all of us on the trip – he was very professional, highly informative, kept us entertained with jokes and shared his personal life experiences that touched us all.

He left us with an unforgettable memory.

A big Thank You Jusuf.

He would have to be one of the best tours guide I have ever meet travelling in the last ten years. His caring nature made us all feel safe in the hassle and bustle that is India.

Also special thanks to his support team along the way, they also made us feel safe to allow us to enjoy the tour.

Special mention all to our ‘Welcome Director’ Raj. What a nice and caring guy.

I look forward to my next trip with On the Go Tours in Egypt. ”
