What a fantastic tour, I loved every part of it. Our guide Momo is an absolute legend, he was funny and also very knowledgeable. He made us all feel welcome from the start. ”  

Josh Rudd • Submitted 8 Sep 2019

Words fail to describe how amazing my experience in Egypt was. I feel honored and blessed to have had Dino as my guide throughout my journey. He is an incredible asset to On The Go Tours. We were so well prepared for every site and hotel. Dino kept us so well-informed. We always knew what to expect from the locals at each stop, and when and where breakfast was served each day. Not only is his knowledge and understanding of the historical sites deep and insightful, his sense of humor kept us amused. I really can't express how wonderful our trip was, mostly due to Dino, and On The Go. We never could have seen so much travelling alone. My 15 and 13 year old sons have incredible memories to last their lifetimes.

I would also like to say that the trip notes are an invaluable resource. I recommend everyone read them at least twice. Personal safety was never an issue in Egypt. I hope to one day visit again, as I found the Egyptian people to be warm and wonderful! ”

For me personally its was a childhood dream to visit and see all the places that I had only ever seen in books at school. The King Ramses - 13 day tour gave fantastic insight to Egypt's history.

My guide Momo was so knowledgeable and fun, keeping our group together. He made the tour a family, so much fun was had by all. We covered so much in the 13 days.

Momo's passion and explanation of Egypt's history was just astounding everything on the tour was also very good everyone was given clear instructions which made the tour run smoothly.

I would recommend this tour to my family and friends if Momo was available I would recommend him as the guide. ”

Frequently asked questions about our touring holidays in Egypt

Will I see the Great Pyramids?

You most certainly will. The world's last remaining ancient wonder has attracted travellers to Egypt throughout the ages and we include this must-see attraction on all our tours. You'll also see the famous Sphinx with the option to ride a camel close to the Pyramids and enter the interior of Khufu. The day of sightseeing also includes the ancient necropolis of Saqqara, home to Zhoser’s step pyramid.

What options do you offer to cruise the Nile River?

On our tours that travel as far south as Aswan, we include a two night felucca cruise as standard. Feluccas are traditional wooden sail boats with mattresses on the deck where you'll sleep at night. A support vessel accompanies the felucca with an on-board toilet and shower. There is always the option to upgrade to a 5 star Nile cruise, which offers well–appointed, outward facing cabins with air-conditioning and private bathrooms. Alternatively, our Jewel of the Nile tour features a 5 star, three night cruise as standard.

Is it safe to visit Egypt?

It's impossible to deem a country safe when you have no control over events but our tours have been departing as scheduled ever since the initial travel ban that surrounded Arab Spring. Recent events have not been directed at tourists and the popular sightseeing area along the Nile has no travel restrictions in place. The FCO advises that there is a heightened risk of terrorism in Egypt but that same advice is also applied to Belgium and France. In other words, Egypt is no unsafer than European destinations during these uncertain times. Consult our Egypt Travel Advice page for up-to-date information on the security situation in Egypt.

I want to include a visit to Petra in neighbouring Jordan - is this possible?

If you want to explore more of the region's ancient wonders, we offer a number of tours that combine Egypt with Jordan and even Israel. Ranging from 12 to 18 days, these multi-country combo tours feature the highlights of both countries including the Rose City of Petra, the otherworldly Dead Sea and the remarkable Wadi Rum. Browse our full collection of Egypt tours for more details.

How big are your tour groups and what is the age of your travellers?

Our average group size is around 14 passengers and you'll be travelling with an eclectic mix of English-speaking internationals. You can expect a wide range of ages from those in their 20s to those in their 60s or even 70s. On average though the age hovers somewhere around the early to mid 40s.

What is the standard of hotels on your trips?

You'll be staying in 4-5 star accommodation in Egypt with a mix of modern properties and grand, classical buildings that are well-known. Our hotels have been chosen for their great locations, amenities and comfort.

What sort of transport do you use?

For transfers between our hotels and the local sites we travel by private, modern air-conditioned vehicles. This includes airport transfers too. You'll also be travelling by 1st class overnight sleeper train between Cairo and Luxor/Aswan. For more information on the sleeper train in Egypt, check out our Top Travel Tips page. Between Luxor and Aswan you'll cruise the Nile by felucca for a taste of navigation that has been used in these parts for centuries.

When is the best time to visit Egypt for general sightseeing?

Visit between September and April for the most comfortable temperatures and ideal sightseeing conditions. Between March and August temperatures are high and the heat dry. You could consider going for the bi-annual Abu Simbel Sun Festival, which takes place in February and October each year. Not only is the weather great at these times of year but it means you can also coincide your trip with this special event. For more information see our best time to visit Egypt page.
