I have just gotten home from Turkey Unplugged on my second tour with OTG.

It was marvellous!! Great accommodation, great itinerary, perfect Hot Air Ballooning as optional extra but what made the trip was our guide Reggie!

His knowledge and fantastic sense of humour and care for us made the group feel like old friends.

Highly recommend the tour and if possible request Reggie as your guide!

We have just come back from Thailand, having booked the Bangkok, Beach and Beyond tour. Our tour guide, Mhor, was excellent, extremely knowledgeable, very funny, and brilliant English! Everything was organised even down to the food as they were aware that my daughter had a nut allergy. The hotels were beautiful, each day was packed with different experiences to really see Thailand in all it's glory. It's given us a glimpse of each part of Thailand and we are making plans to go back to Chiang Mia as that was our favourite! We even got to play with the elephants at one of the sanctuaries. I would highly recommend On The Go and Thailand.

I was lucky enough to experience the amazing country of Jordan with On The Go Tours last week, with their Totally Jordan tour-what a trip! Everything was organised so brilliantly, from Ali who met us before we cleared customs and arranged our visa, to our wonderful guide Mohammed who shared not only his knowledge and experience, but his beautiful family too. The two nights in Petra gave us enough time to see the major sights as well as spending a morning hiking around less well known locations. One of the major highlights was our stay in Wadi Rum, the camp reserved exclusively for our tour group- the hospitality and enthusiasm of all the staff was outstanding! Thanks again On The Go- highly recommended!

On behalf of my family (My brother Koos, his wife Bobby, my sister and I), I would like to sincerely thank you for the wonderful trip to Egypt that On the Go Tours arranged for us from 01 - 13 June 2018. Everything went quite smooth and we had a real good time! This was our second trip to Egypt and we were very impressed with and we have great appreciation for the professional manner in which your company dealt with every detail of our trip. Further, I would like to express a special word of thanks to the following people that made our trip very memorable:
• Firstly, our very competent, friendly and knowledgeable Guide, Waleed Zayan. He really took good care of all of us and he went out of his way to make us feel at home and to make our trip a memorable experience!
• The excellent Drivers who drove us around; and
• Lastly but not least, I would also like to thank all those in the background who assisted us in planning and finalising our trip.

In conclusion, I would like to mention that we were also very impressed with the manner in which we were assisted by by On The Go representatives when we arrived at and finally left Cairo Airport. When we left for home, the On The Go representative assisted us all the way with the formalities of going through Security, Customs and the check in counters. He even assisted us with the completion of the departure forms! He was such a nice young man! We are seasoned international travellers and this was a first for us!

A very knowledgeable, mature, well-organized and considerate young man who is a true asset to his country and the On The Go tour company.

He took the time to answer all our questions and even looked after guests who needed help with things such as phone tech. problems.

If you want to avoid disappointments while traveling, a qualified guide such as Hicham is a must. He knows his country and fellow citizens in-depth and left us with a comprehensive introduction to the beautiful country of Morocco, his home.

The places visited along this tour were all interesting, a perfect mix of history and adventure. The only inconvenience I experienced was not having hot water at one of the places we stayed at but the air was so hot that even this didn't bother me for the one night.

For those who want to shop, keep in mind that much ground is covered in nine days so you can't stroll at a leisurely pace in the medinas to pick up things but you do visit some shops with interesting and beautiful items to bring home, if this is your interest.

Many places where you eat, sleep and shop look like nothing much on the outside but this is extremely deceiving as once you step inside, you marvel at what you find inside.

Stride Review

On the Go Tour is a British-based tour company that runs primarily guided tours around the world but will also help fashion independent travel itineraries. 

What Makes On the Go Tours Stand Out?

They have a large number of holiday styles, including a large number of options for independent travellers looking for tailor made trips. On the Go Tours is very accommodating and popular amongst solo and single travellers, with most of their escorted group tours requiring no single supplement.

Specialty tours, such as Tintin tours to Egypt, Jordan, and India, based on the adventures of the famous Belgian cartoon-book boy-journalist-explorer, are one of the main things that sets On the Go Tours apart.

Who Will Enjoy Travelling with On the Go Tours?

Those travellers who gravitate to busy, lively, itineraries, that also allow for spontaneity, and are budget conscious will love travelling on holidays with On the Go Tours. They are also very popular among those interested in festivals around the globe. These events are often large scale and can be difficult to navigate, find accommodation, and stay safe.

On the Go Tours provides a way to take the stress out of planning to attend a festival. And not just music, but Carnival at Rio; the vibrant Holi Festival in India; the Dragon Boat Festival in China; the Nadaam Festival in Mongolia; and the Boryeong Mud Festival in South Korea, along with many others. So if you are culturally curious and enjoy the idea of large crowds attending the same meaningful event, On the Go Tours would be a great place to start for these travel plans.

Lantern lights nighttime festival

Travellers with On the Go Tours are mostly age 28 and up, and you can expect a wide range of ages and backgrounds among the group. These holidays are relatively active in nature - a lot of walking and time outdoors, On the Go does offer some family itineraries suitable for children. They also actively solicit single travelers, and don’t require a single supplement. Nationality wise, they attract mainly British, New Zealand, Australian, North American, and South African.

Top Destinations

On the Go Tours operate around the world, with a large majority of holidays offered in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Australia, and Central and South America are also popular.

On the Go Tours Travel Style

Jeep on Safari On the Go Tours

The On the Go Tours travel style is a combination of coach travel, 3 to 4 star accommodation, some camping, walking and cycling. These tours will keep you active, and in most cases you will carry your own luggage, so pack light, and if you are relatively physically fit you will enjoy the days far more.

They have 5 “Holiday ranges” to help you determine the tour type that is going to be best suited to you.

1. Signature - The On the Go Tours Signature Collection is a group of higher end offerings. Accommodations will be in 4-5 star hotels, and groups are kept smaller, with a maximum of 24 people. Destinations are primarily focused in Asia, with a few departures in Europe including Iceland, Russia, and Italy. Peru is also available.

2. Budget - Budget tours are a key component of On the Go Tours. These trips are for active backpackpackers interested in meeting similar travelers in a larger group (max 32). You will be carrying your own luggage, and using a variety of transportation including overland vehicles, public buses and trains. Accommodation is in tented camps and 2-3 star hotels. Most meals are up to you and not included in the itinerary or base price.

3. Handpicked - These trips visit classic and iconic sights, utilizing locally run tours (where you might join up with other tour takers, not exclusively your own tour companions). Partners on the ground help On the Go craft a unique vision for your itinerary. Groups are small, around 28 people max.

4. Active - Active holidays with On the Go tours are intended for those travellers interested in being outdoors and have an adventurous frame of mind. Whether you’re traveling by bike, or on foot trekking or hiking. Travellers who are physically fit and used to stretching their limits will find the most enjoyment on an Active trip with On the Go Tours. Active holidays are offered in Asia and the Middle East primarily, with outings also available in Croatia, Turkey, and Africa.

5. Independent - For those travellers who aren’t as excited about a group tour and like the idea of being on their own but with a professionally planned itinerary, On the Go Tours has you covered! These bespoke tours allow you to have input over what you see, and the pace of your journey. Expect to pay a little bit more for this experience (bespoke tours with On the Go can be considered akin to their Signature Collection), but having the expertise behind your itinerary is all worth it.

Why Choose an Escorted Tour with On the Go Tours?

Angkor Wat sunrise On the Go Tours

On the Go is a perfect starting place for active travellers who maybe don’t know quite yet the kind of journey they’re looking for and want a lot of choice. Prices are kept in the low to mid budget range, and on most tours you can expect a lot of inclusions - this does means there is quite a bit less free time available during the itinerary to explore on your own, so if this matters a lot to you, On the Go may not be the best fit.

From tours that specialise in festivals and events (both obscure and popular, musical and cultural), to bespoke holidays designed for you personally, to extended overland journeys, On the Go Tours has tons of holiday types to choose from.

Young active traveler with On the Go Tours

Destinations cover a wide range of popular, classic, and off the beaten path locations from less traveled areas of Eastern Europe to the Middle East and Africa. The age range is diverse, and solo travelers are very welcome and actively encouraged to join On the Go Tours. This is a great tour company for meeting new people who have like-minded approaches to travel.

From On The Go Tours

Escaping a cold London winter back in 1998, we followed the sun for a colourful adventure around the world. Discovering amazing history, interesting cultures and the jaw-dropping beauty of our planet, the friends we made along the way made our journey all the more special. Inspired to share our experiences, the seeds were sown and On The Go Tours was born.

Over the years we’ve grown into a small yet global company, with a purposeful local ethos. True to our own travels, authenticity is core to our holidays. We’d love you to experience a country the way it really is, with people who live there and know it inside out. We know this makes the difference between a great holiday and a truly memorable one. Our carefully sought out English-speaking local guides are passionate about sharing their country with you and we believe that they are amongst the best in the business.

We know too that adventure feels better with a chilled beer poolside or a soft pillow at the end of each day and we search out comfortable hotels and boutique properties for your stay. As we love to say - travel with us and adventure in style!

Unbeatable value: Combining authentic local experiences with an excellent range of 3-5 star hotels & boutique properties, our tours represent unbeatable value. Add in airport transfers, passionate tour guides and all transportation and you do get the best of adventure travel and creature comforts too.

Great group size: With an average of 15 to 18 and a maximum of 24, our group size really works well on tour, so you’re bound to meet like-minded travellers and make lasting friendships. Our festival tours do have larger group sizes due to their ‘one-off’ nature.

100% Guaranteed: Not only are all our group tour departures 100% guaranteed, we are also fully financially bonded, so you can book our tours with absolute confidence. We’re proud to say that we recently won 2 prestigious British Travel Awards and were runner up for another 3, testament to the quality of our holidays.
