Morocco - Hand over Heart - Hicham and Hussein made it SO special

After months of extremely patient planning with Lee S. and his local (Caroline / Rachna / Terri) AND overseas support Teams...I have returned from another outstanding and successful trip with On the Go to the beautiful Kingdom of Morocco. As a repeat traveler, I can emphatically say that On the Go's difference lies in their responsive customer service, value and excellent local guides - no wonder they are award winning!

What we have seen of Morocco has far exceeded our expectations - it is a very special destination that is ready to re-welcome the world. Getting to know the history of its land and peoples, marveling at the changing landscapes on our drive, feasting on the local foods and specialties and experiencing the achingly beautiful historical sites and marveling at the contrast of modernity in its capital were a balanced counter-point - all this is just the tip of the iceberg. The tour itinerary was interesting and highly varied plus we felt safe and secure from the moment we were met at the airport to the day we departed.

We appreciated our stays at both traditional riads and modern hotels; both types provided a valuable contrast.

Hicham is the kindest and hardest working guide I have had the pleasure of touring with - extremely hard working, super patient and attentive to the entire group's varied needs. Knowledgeable and proud of his people and country, Hicham's passion for guiding is evident. Paired with our very capable and skilled driver Hussein they are a fantastically dynamic duo.

Put your faith in Hicham and he will deliver with a SMILE- while making anything you ask of him seem possible. He will go out of his way to ensure you have a wonderful experience- even after the official tour has ended - we were able to see special glimpses of the "true" Morocco and are forever grateful!! We were SO fortunate to meet Hicham and now consider him a friend. Hicham is a wonderful, passionate ambassador for his country and for On the Go Tours...he is truly an asset to the the company - consider yourself blessed to be in his capable care. Visit Morocco - with On the Go - you will not be disappointed. Bessaha and Shukran to On the Go, Hussein and Hicham for absolutely everything.”

Just back from an absolutely fantastic week in Morocco. Everything from start to finish was brilliantly organised and extremely professional. Our guide, Hicham Tora, was just amazing and totally made the holiday for us. Every day he went above and beyond to cater to everyone's needs. He took some amazing photos for us when we were on the camel ride into the Sahara and worked tirelessly to ensure we all experienced what we had come to see and wanted to do. He made the holiday for us and I cannot recommend this trip highly enough.”

I have just returned from my tour with On The Go and it was an amazing trip! From arriving at the airport and meeting the OTG representative, everything was well organised and hassle free. 

Our tour guide was Amir. He is awesome!! From the beginning he was so friendly and enthusiastic about showing us around Egypt, giving us loads of information at each place and time to explore ourselves. Learnt so much from him about this fascinating place, and he was always happy to answer more questions.  

The trip itself was amazing. There's lots of travelling on this trip, but it's really not too bad, and the sights you see when you get to where you are going are worth it. I'm not a big fan of boats, but the Felluca ride across the Nile was pretty fun too. 

On the first day I also did the optional tour of Cairo with Ahmed Helal - another excellent guide from OTG. It's worth doing this add on as you don't spend much time in Cairo, and you go to three very different places. 

I'm so glad that I decided to do this trip. It was just ace.  If you're thinking about it too, you should probably just book it. And hopefully you get Amir as your guide.”
