Alisa's review for another On The Go Tours tour
“Though jammed-packed with activities every day that made up drop into our beds every night, the tour included all the main attractions of the whole of Egypt. It was made easier and better by the incredible knowledge and care given by our On The Go tour guide, Nader. Such a memorable holiday!”

WHAT'S EXCLUDED
  • Sleeping bag - please bring your own
  • Gorilla Permit and transfer fee: Please note that Gorillas often move across the border, between the national parks in Rwanda and Uganda, therefore itineraries often have to be changed at short notice in order to track the Gorillas in whichever National Park they have migrated to. For this reason the cost of the Gorilla Permit and relevant transfers varies, as do the applicable visa costs, dependent upon which country we need to travel into. Permits are subject to availability and need to be booked in advance.
