We were on a tailor-made tour of Egypt and Jordan in August-Sept of this year that included our daughter, son, and daughter-in-law along with us and wanted to make sure you know how happy were were with our tour guides in both counties.

We were given review papers to fill out when we left both both Egypt and Jordan, but we don't feel we had enough time to fill them out properly since they were given to us as we were preparing to leave each country.

Our Egyptian tour Guide, Medo (Ahmed) was wonderful. He loves Egyptian history and I loved the way his eyes would light up when he was telling about what we were seeing. He went above and beyond when one of our family members was being cheated by a local and demanded that money be returned. We felt totally comfortable asking him anything about Egyptian history, people, religions, politics and because of this we learned so much more about Egypt.

We had a great time with our Jordanian guide, Ghadan, also. Since the main reason for visiting Jordan was to see Petra, having a tour guide from the Petra area was a real bonus, since he was so knowledgeable about local customs. And like our other guide we could ask him anything, and because of this we learned so much about Jordanian culture. We have so many interests when we travel and Ghadan made sure we saw it all. We felt like Ghadan was having as great a time showing us his country as we were being there.

We would also like to mention our driver, Issa, who was with us through all of Jordan also. It isn't to often that we get an English speaking driver, so it was a real bonus being able to learn about Jordan from him too.

Thank you for a great tour. ”

On the go was great with all the hotels and picks up/drop off, even with the airports. I loved the variety of stuff to do and places to go. I feel like we did it all! Our guide Medo was hands down the best. He was extremely smart and funny, he could answer anything. He helped with so much stuff he didn't have to, it was great getting to know him. He made the trip worth it!”

We would like to thank you for our tailor-made tour of Cairo and especially for providing us with TAHA as our guide. Taha was not only a wealth of information, but he did so with our care in mind, and we found him very easy to listen and learn from. Taha answered all our questions, took time with us, and taught us so much about the area we didnt know. He was always pleasant, friendly and very obliging and he was a pleasure to deal with. He made our tour with On the Go worthwhile and we wouldnt hesitate to recommend him to anyone wanting to visit Egypt. Thankyou once again, and please pass on our gratitude to Taha and thank him very much. ”

Places on our must-see list for a tailormade holiday to Egypt

A classic holiday itinerary to the land of the Pharaoh's includes key sites of ancient Egypt - the giant pyramids at Giza and historic Luxor with iconic sites such as the Valley of Kings, Karnak Temple and Luxor temple, best visited when it's illuminated at night. Further south in Upper Egypt, is Aswan on the banks of the Nile, and gateway to the temple of Abu Simbel, undoubtedly one of Egypt's biggest draw cards. Nile cruising is a popular too as are the Red Sea resorts of Hurghada and Sharm-El-Sheikh.
