Our Tour Guides

Meet some of our amazing guides

On our Signature tours, you are guaranteed to be escorted by a local, English-speaking tour guide. All of our guides know their destinations inside out, and many have worked with us for many years. We carefully select them based on their knowledge, passion, and personality.

When asking our customers for feedback, our tour guides are often mentioned as being the highlight of the trip. Whether it's their expert knowledge of the destination, the feeling of safety and security being guided by a local, or simply being advised on the best restaurant to visit for dinner, our guides make our Signature tours what they are. And we're incredibly proud of our people!

Find out a bit more about some of our guides below.

sherif

It's not easy committing to years of study to qualify as an Egyptologist guide. So, we launched an initiative in Egypt where we sponsor one of our talented transfer reps through university, at the end of which they will be a fully qualified guide, well versed in Egyptology. Our most recent graduate is Sherif Fawzy, who is now a fully qualified Egyptologist and licensed tour guide, leading group and private tours across the country. Previously our Field Manager in Cairo, you can now join Sherif on many of our Egypt departures, including our award-winning King Tutankhamun and King Ramses tours. We're always on the lookout for future talent in our Egyptian guiding team!

Our Annual Tour Guide Awards

Hung in Vietnam - Tour Guide of the Year 2016 - On The Go Tours

Our coveted tour leader awards recognise our top six tour guides in our Signature destinations. The awards are judged primarily on feedback from our travellers, collected over the course of the year. Winners are then announced sometime in March the following year. The well-deserved winners get a complimentary holiday to another one of our destinations and get to sample the great work done by the rest of our tour guides elsewhere.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lack of travel, we haven't run our Tour Guide of the Year Awards since 2018. But they will be back later in 2022, so make sure to leave us a review if you have a good experience on holiday with us - you never know, you could help your guide win one of our coveted awards!

2018 Winners

2018 marked the fifth year of our Tour Guide of the Year Awards. The winners of the awards were as follows:

Manoj in Sri Lanka
Lhoucine in Morocco
Mahmoud in Egypt
Recep in Turkey
Mohammed in Jordan
Khoeurn in Cambodia

Manoj Maddage, Sri Lanka
