Ravi was a brilliant guide who is clearly passionate about his country and has a deep desire to share his knowledge with the guests. He was energetic every day and was engaged and involved in answering the questions from the group and ensuring they were having a good time - whether it was during the scheduled activities, meals and optional activities. Our group had a mix of people from all different countries and age groups and Ravi was able to accommodate to all the guests. In addition to Ravi, I would like to recognize Tanka (our driver) for his brilliant driving and super friendliness. He and Ravi made our trip a very memorable one! and I couldn't have asked for a better pair!

One of the best holidays I've been on. Nepal remains just as fascinating and mysterious. The breadth and depth of knowledge the guide has is phenomenal, he made sure everything ran to plan while maintaining a cheerful deposition at all times. 10/10 to the driver as well.

This was my first organised tour after many years as as independent traveler, so I was a little hesitant about the experience. However from the moment we booked until the last day, we were met with an enthusiastic and professional On The Go workforce who all contributed to ensuring we had the best possible time. Fabulous trip, well organised and comprehensive.

Interesting tour for first time visitors. It is a shame there is so much earthquake damage around Kathmandu Valley area. Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The highlight of the trip for us was undoubtedly Chitwan National Park.
