Firsty my Guide - Mohamed Saiid - Momo.

What a wonderful gentle soul. Mo was a delight. His enthusiasm, knowlege and passion for all things Egypt is commendable. Mo's Egyptology was outstanding which he delivered with humour that enabled us to absorb and retain the information better - he had an excellent take on when we were getting information overload and would adapt his commentary to suit.

We had a wonderful group of people but a diverse range of personalities, some with quite strong views of how things should be done, which at times was extremely difficult for Mo to co-ordinate the group but I think he did a wonderful job of accommodating the majority whilst appeasing the minority.

A special delight was Mo sharing life of everyday Egyptians by taking us for coffee and tea in small coffee shops in the shisha aroma filled lanes - a true dleight.

SECONDLY THE TRIP ITSELF - for me - 9 /10 - The tour showed us major Egyptian must do's - the Pyramids, Abu Simbel, Phillae Temple, Luxor, Karnak, Colossi of Memnon and the amazing Valley of the Kings. We got to swim in the Nile, cruise down it and then ended up at the Red Sea where we could view the coral and fishes through the glass enclosures of the semi-sub and then snorkel amongst the fishes. Finally we ended our tour with a visit to the Egyptian Museum where we saw the Royal Mummies and of course the highlight - everything Tutankhamun!

I found the Egyptian people to be very friendly and accommodating and personally I felt very at ease the entire trip.

To make the tour a 10/10 for me - an extra day in Luxor and Aswan and only 2 days in Hurghada would be the way to go.

Egypt - definitley a bucket list item that you would not regret taking.

It has been a dream of mine for many years to visit Egypt and this year I decided to stop day dreaming about going and actually book a Christmas trip.

I have travelled with On The Go before so I knew that the trip would be good, but in reality it was superb and that was because of our fantastic guide Momo.

Momo is one of the best tour guides I have come across. He is really passionate about Egypt and it clearly brings him great joy to share his extensive knowledge with people who are eager to soak up the rich culture and history of the country.

Momo guided us around some of the most awe inspiring sights I have ever seen including the Pyramids, Philae Temple, Valley of the Kings and Karnak.

This trip really was superb and I would recommend Egypt to anyone as a wonderful place to visit.

Hello On The Go team,

I wanted to share my delight and awesome experience on our recent tour of Egypt, 14 day King Ramses tour. This trip was made special by our wonderful guide, Mahmoud Ramadan. Mahmoud looked after our group and each individual each moment, was always available for questions, a chat, a photo and how can you miss that smile, can’t help smiling with him. Mahmoud’s Egyptian knowledge was remarkable, with his excellent communication skills and talks, we came away knowing so so much more than expected, even started to understand the hieroglyphics! Now returned home to Australia , we are telling everyone we know to go Egypt, and with On The Go tours. Thanks again, and a big Thankyou to Mahmoud Ramadan.

Momo truly made our experience an unforgettable one. Coming from the travel industry, it’s amazing to be part of such a great tour and for me to experience what my clients will experience. Momo has made sure my complete faith in your company remains and I felt honoured to become part of his family.

Momo shared his vast knowledge with us, he made learning about the history easy and fun and he made sure everyone was always looked after and happy. He went above and beyond what anyone could have ever expected from him multiple times and for that I can’t thank him enough.

Momo, you made us feel the love you have for your beautiful country and you shared a really special bond with all of us. Your witty humour, your care and respect for all members of our new found family, your knowledge and facts and your beautiful smile made this a tour to remember forever.

Thank you for being the wonderful person you, for being the phenomenal tour guide you are and for sharing your country with us, you are an incredible person!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour through Egypt. Our guide has exceptional knowledge of both the ancient and modern history of Egypt which he delivered in a clear and understandable manner. As the tour leader he was very approachable and really helped bring the group together and form a 'family' group while we were away. We met some wonderful friends and made some great memories. Would highly recommend this tour.

This has been a trip of a life time and On the Go Tours had made it possible with this tour. Our tour guide, Momo, is so passionate about his country and his knowledge made our experience extra special. The tour was just perfect and with the 4 days of relaxation in Hurghada was a welcome relief after touring Egypt. The sites were amazing and so majestic I cried tears of happiness at a few of the sites. To have a guide like Momo, we couldn’t have asked for better. Not only did he care about us, reassuring, organising us so that we would get the best out of our tour. He helped complete strangers from different ends of the world come together and form great friendships that will continue hereafter. We cannot thank you enough, On the Go Tours and Momo for the best adventure of mine and my mother in laws life. We will forever be grateful.

Thankyou On the Go for an incredible experience and especially to our tour guide Sam, Haytham Youssry for your wonderful passion, knowledge and insight, kindness and generosity and showing us true Egyptian hospitality and making this the trip of a lifetime I will never forget! I cannot reccomend him highly enough.

Sam's love for Egypt and knowledge was infectious and fun. He spent time hanging out with us, and was part of the group at dinner and drinks as well as imparting his vast knowledge to us in fun, entertaining and interactive ways. He helped us haggle to get great deals with locals and taught us all about Egyptian kindness,culture and hospitality. He was more like an incredibly, knowlegable, passionate, funny and enthusiastic friend than a tour guide. He was great with people of all ages in our group and inspired and entertained us with his love of Egypt and our group became a family in our time with him. He always went above and beyond to help all members of our tour and was always helpful if anyone had and problems or issues. ( one of or members had lost luggage and another one had her hotel room broken into while she slept) These things could have been really disruptive to our tour but Sam handled it with grace and ease and professionalism. He was always upbeat and did a wonderful job at keeping us all happy and smiling. He handled the diverse personalities well and took the time to find out what drew people to coming on the tour so he could cater to their individual interests.

I have done tours before with wonderful guides, but Sam ( Haytham) is simply the BEST!

I cannot recommend him highly enough!

It was the best! Egypt is a wonderful place and we got to see it all. The tour was very well organized and that gave us a great deal of comfort. Our tour guide Momo is a wonderful and very dedicated person in his work. He made this tour a wonderful experience for all. He has been able to combine the accumulation of knowledge about Egypt with the fun. Regarding accommodation and transport it was very very good.

This was an amazing tour! I was travelling in a family group of 3 adults and 3 teens and we all loved it. There were so many experiences - tombs, temples, sailing down the Nile, markets, delicious food, driving though the desert, along the Nile, through villages and crazy Cairo traffic. Highlights were the felucca cruise (if you like camping, go for it!), Abu Simbel, Valley of the Kings, and Queen Nefartari's tomb (expensive but worth it!), camel ride at the pyramids, snorkelling in Hurghada, the Egyptian Museum, and the temples at Luxor. So much history and so many adventures! New Year's Eve on the felucca with the Nubian crew playing drums and everyone dancing was magical. I recommend staying in Hurghada for 4 nights instead of 2 if at all possible. It was a wonderful place to relax after the busy days of touring. Great snorkelling!

We were so well taken care of by OTG and our guide Alam. Alam was incredibly knowledgeable and organized. He explained everything very well, called us his family and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best possible experience, that all our questions were answered and that we all felt safe and secure. In fact at no time did I feel unsafe, even at night in the streets or market or train platform. The Egyptian people were very friendly and welcoming, if not a little too eager to sell us their wares, but all part of the cultural experience! I highly recommend this tour!
