FESTIVAL TOUR: Add an extra special element to your Egyptian holiday by combining it with the magical Abu Simbel Sun Festival. The legendary Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, felucca sailing on the Nile, the tomb laden Valley of the Kings and energetic Cairo all in 11 unforgettable days!
Visiting Egypt had been a lifelong dream of mine and my trip with On the Go exceeded all of my expectations. The ancient sites we visited, the felucca ride and all of the other experiences along the way are things I will never forget. Our guide Alam, an Egyptologist, was extremely knowledgeable, organised and above all a great person. He went above and beyond to ensure the trip ran smoothly and everybody in our group was looked after. Alam really made our trip, he is a wonderful tour guide. Overall I felt very safe in Egypt and would encourage everybody to experience this beautiful country.
Wonderful trip very well organised, all the guides were there when needed, very articulate and well informed. Amal is very intelligent, kind and considerate to all the ages represented on the tour.
To Alam, Thank you for making my visit to Egypt so wonderful and memorable. You have to be the most patient man I have ever met. Managing 19 people can be challenging but you always had a smile for us. I feel like I got lucky with our group because our group dynamics just clicked and we all got along so well, but, we were even luckier having you as our guide. You were always smiling and super accommodating. Your passion for Egypt and her history really came through. That sit-down, group round-table we had at the Mosque was both illuminating & special. I have come back from Egypt with not just a lot of knowledge about her ancient history, but also a better understanding of Egypt today and a better understanding about Islam. You are a great ambassador for Egypt. Being on a guided tour made my experience much more enriching because of the group camaraderie and because I felt I was able to see a LOT in a short time and it also made me feel extremely safe. As a single woman traveling, safety is a big factor for me so this tour was the perfect way to travel . I'm already looking forward to the next one. Thank you so much! PS. Also wanted to give a big Thank you to Mido, our Cairo rep. You made it so seamless and easy to get through the airport and hotel transfers. Totally Appreciate :)
