We couldn’t imagine Turkey without Recep! His experience and education gave us a foundation for every site we visited and brought the history of Turkey alive with his stories.

Each morning on the bus Recep would explain the history of the site we were visiting and general information about life in Turkey.

He generously shared his own family stories, which personalized the information and the history of this beautiful country.

His method allowed him to give more detail as we toured the site and answer our questions.

He also ensured that we had free time in the evenings to explore and was always willing to suggest somewhere we could go for dinner or a walk.

Recep was extremely courteous, professional and helpful.

The information he provided during our tour made the rest of our time in Turkey more enjoyable and this trip wouldn’t have been the same without him as our guide.

Recep is also extremely well organized and prepared for every step of the journey.

We were always on time and the first to arrive at each site.

His polite and courteous manner was demonstrated by the positive relationships he had almost everywhere we stopped.

Everyone seemed happy to see him arrive and looked as though they would have liked to tag along.

From restaurants to short coffee/toilet breaks on the road, Recep knows the best place to stop.

If we had known about him before I would have considered a private tour.

Thank you for having such wonderful staff!! less....

    In all cases, you?must be fully inoculated. This means you must receive the full dosage of the COVID-19 vaccine and allow a minimum of 14 days before travelling in order for immunity to take effect. ?Each COVID-19 vaccine has different dosages and time frames for inoculation, so please check the related medical advice associated with your vaccine. We will not accept?travellers?on trips?who have received only a partial dose (for example, one part of a two-dose vaccination) of?a?vaccine.

    Children?under 18 years of age are not currently required to provide any COVID-related documentation to travel with On The Go Tours.

    If you are unwilling or unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons, you may apply for an exemption. Exemptions will be assessed on an individual basis. To apply, you must provide supporting documentation from a medical professional. In addition, those who qualify for a medical exemption are still required to produce proof of a negative test in the form of written documentation (in English) conducted no more than 72 hours before day 1 of their trip, the details of which need to be emailed to info@onthegotours.com prior to the commencement of your trip.

Our highest priority is the health and safety of our travellers, leaders, crew, suppliers, and local communities. We have a duty of care to ensure our travellers safety. By making the decision that travellers with an elevated risk of serious disease from COVID-19 must be fully vaccinated prior to travel with us, we are reducing the risk of harm to those travellers.

Pangandaran Regency

What do you love most about Pangandaran Regency?

"Talking to the locals and playing football with them, laughing with them and sharing stories despite their English isn't the best is probably my favourite part of visiting Pangandaran."

Are there many tourists?

"I was walking on the main beach for 2 hours and didn't see one other tourist. I was doing a tour the next day and we were in a very small group of 5 foreigners. I love being 'the only' tourist! "

Bali

What do you love most about Bali?

"Of course, Bali is a very popular destination and sometimes it's packed with (too many) tourists, but it's touristy for a reason. It's such a beautiful island with so many picture-perfect places!"

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"My favourite activity in Bali was climbing Mount Batur in the middle of the night to watch the sunrise on top of the volcano. We were even lucky enough to see Mount Rinjani on Lombok in the distance! "

Must pack items for Bali

"Don't forget to bring warmer clothes! Especially in Northern Bali, it can get colder and you will need a jacket for sure! This photo was taken on top of a mountain and trust me, it was pretty cold..."

Bonus...

"Combine your Bali trip with a few days on Nusa Penida. Every photographer wants to take a photo of the T-rex-shaped cliff but... watch out when flying your drone. The signal is very sketchy!"

@ck_the_explorer's Top Tips

"Views like this are found by hiking up to Klakkur, a viewpoint near Klaksvik in the Faroe Islands. Seeing the salmon cages in the distance and Faroe's 2nd largest city is quite the experience."

"The old town Torshavn, in the capital of the Faroe Islands, still has old turfed homes in perfect condition. These houses are reminiscent of Faroese ancestors!"
