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.

Yousef is thoroughly professional, very knowledgable and extremely warm and welcoming. We could not have asked for anything more from him. No problem was too much for him to sort out and he never lost his cool. His humour was a delight. I cannot praise him enough. He truly made the holiday for us.

We had an absolutely amazing time! The best thing about our tour was the tour guide. Yusuf was informative, professional, friendly, helpful and always willing to answer questions. In addition to the many monuments we visited the real highlights of the trip were the walk through the streets, the rickshaw ride through the market and the group dinners where entertainment was provided. This was my first organized tour as I usually travel independently and I was pleasantly surprised that we were not rushed or herded around.

The trip was very organised and there were guides, taxi drivers ready to go at each point inc our journeys on trains and trips to and from the airport. The Shimla trip was lovely and certainly orthwhile. The trip notes are very good and useful once home and looking back over the photos.The guides we had were very experienced and gave us some history and background information.
