John "The 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..."

    Had a great tour with Alam. He was very informative and lots of fun and looked after our every need. Helped me fullfill my daughters dream of visiting the pyramids. We were so lucky to have him as our your guide.

    On The Go Tours commented on this review
    Hi Louise, we are certainly pleased that you enjoyed the overall Tour, although it is disappointing to note that the overnight train did not live up to expectations. Considering the rustic nature of this train journey, some travellers opt for the Treasures of the Nile Tour which offers internal flights rather than the train. We are pleased you overall had a great holiday and thank you for taking the time to pass on your feedback. Thanks again, On The Go Tours

    Ussuma, our tour guide, was wonderful and very informed. The train portion of the tour should be eliminated. The train was filthy and the water closet was very undesirable to use.
