- JohnWritten on May 3, 20185.0 - ExcellentThe Jewel of the Nile Tour was everything and more than how I imagined it to be. There was never a moment when I felt unsure as to what was to happen next. The tour arrangements ran like clockwork. Overall our accommodation was top draw, especially the MS Farah, Nile cruise boat. The train however was somewhat of a dissapointment, and desperately needs to be up graded, but that of course is out of your control. Sal, our excellent tour guide, was a gold mine of information; as, not only did we learn about Ancient Egypt, but also how things are in Egypt of today. There was never a moment when our group felt unsafe, all of us impressed by the security at the hotels and archeological sites. As a single traveller, my needs were met at every step of the way, therefore I would highly recommend this tour, as being exceedingly good value for money. Thank you On the go Tours for giving me an adventure of a lifetime.Show detailed ratings
- JohnWritten on April 22, 20185.0 - ExcellentYour Jewel of the Nile tour was an adventure from beginning to end. Sal you guide was a fount of knowledge; regarding all things Egyptian amcient and modern; I certainly have come away with an even deeper understanding of the lives of the Egyptians and their gods and beliefs. The tour was certainly value for money; five star accommodation, comfortable tour buses, smooth running itinary; nothing was left to chance. I will definitely be subscribing to On the Go tours again in the future. Thanks for making these last ten days one of the most memorable of vacations.Show detailed ratings
- RBRobinWritten on October 30, 20175.0 - ExcellentWe embarked on the 20th to the 29th October 2017 "Jewel of the Nile Tour". I can honestly say that this was the best trip that my wife and I have ever undertaken and the best investment we have made in ourselves. "On the go" were fantastic and the organisation of everything from collecting us from the airport to returning us at the end of the trip, was flawless. The group conisted of Citizens of the US, Canada, UK, Australia and South Africa. Probably the "Jewel" of the tour was our Tour Guide, Helal. Not only was he a fantastic guide but extremely helpful, a good communicator and a person of wonderful integrity. He literally "made" the tour the experience it was. I cannot express our gratitude adequately. "On the Go" and Helal. You earn top marks with a distinction in our book!Show detailed ratings
- APAparnaWritten on May 10, 20174.5 - ExcellentThis has been an exceptional trip made possible by members of our group,Yasser and Amir. The whole trip was organised very efficiently and attention to small details was exemplary. Co-ordination amongst all the members of the On the Go tour was very good indeed. All of them tried to make our tour as interesting and comfortable as possible. The itinerary was great with Yasser taking us along the journey through Ancient Egyptian history. We made new friends who came from Australia,Canada and the UK. It was an extraordinary experience that all of us had.Show detailed ratingsOn The Go Tours commented on this reviewThank you for taking the time to comment on your recent tour in Egypt.

- LKLenoreWritten on December 31, 20155.0 - ExcellentI have now done 4 On the Go Tours, with family and friends and everytime has been amazing. Now they have Iceland and Alaska as new destinations I need to sort planning my next trip. They have been perfect smaller groups, great guides who know their stuff and the ages on the groups vary to make it so interesting. All the destinations I have done have been left of centre and I love the culture, history and adventuring in a new city which has always been the best parts of my On the Go Tours.Show detailed ratings
- CarolWritten on October 14, 20115.0 - ExcellentOur trip was amazing. The tour co. was fantastic as was the tour guide. Salib, was full of information,& very interesting. He gave invaluable advice re purchases we wished to make & also general advice re the Egyptian people themselves. The only negative was the sleeper train. We would rather have spent a little more to fly as the train trip was appalling! All the other accommodation was first class but this was definitely very low class! The Egyptians seemed to be lovely people & very welcoming, except for all the "hustlers." Maybe once the elections have been held, there will be more regulation of this. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone. In fact I gave a brochure to someone at Cairo Airport, who had had a tour with Trafalgar Tours, cancelled. She was pretty unhappy as a result. We would look at doing another tour in the future with "on the go".Show detailed ratings
- AAnonymousWritten on September 25, 2009Highly recommend this tour! Super Mo was an excellent guide, so knowledgable and passionate about his culture and history. We were kept well informed at all times on each day's activities and enjoyed every single day, except the train, I must say I would rather have skipped the overnight sleeper experience. Beware this tour really is 'on the go' so much to do it wears you out but it is so worth it. The On the Go crew were very organised, we felt very well cared for and safe. We were in a small group - only 6 of us... it was perfect. The Pyramids were awesome - a dream come true! We did the add on Abu Simbel...breathtakng.. it was worth getting up at 3am to be there for the sunrise. Only down side..make sure you have good gastro tablets, we got sick from the food on the Nile Cruiser. Would I go again? You bet..would go tomorrow with 'On the Go'.
