Thank you Yuki - she made this trip perfect. My highlight was seeing a geisha and Mt Fuji.”
I have had the most fabulous tour. My guide Yuki made the tour easy with her fantastic organisation skills, great sense of humour and caring nature. I appreciated the balance of guided aspects and free time. Yuki was so helpful and accommodated the needs of all group members. She was so knowledgeable and efficient which meant we could make the most if our time at each place. My first trip with On The Go has been a blast. A big Thanks to the company and THE BEST tour guide!”
Yuki our Japanese guide was wonderful. She was organised, calm, punctual, flexible and understanding with a lovely sense of humour! Nothing was a problem for her. A very enjoyable trip to Japan - our first visit here!”

The best of Japan
Headed for Japan? Make sure these highlights are on your bucket list.
Our Signature group tours place local interaction and authenticity at the heart of your travel experience.
For our Signature range, we maximize your days with excitement and then bring you home to specially selected accommodation with extra character, convenience and comfort, whether that's a five-star river boat on the Nile or a traditional Japanese Ryokan. Accommodation in this range features comfortable western standards, air-conditioning, WiFi and, where appropriate, a swimming pool.
On a Signature holiday, you’ll be escorted throughout your trip by our qualified English-speaking local guides who’ll show you all the must-see attractions and even the lesser-known sights.To further add to that special touch, the group sizes in our Signature range are mid-sized: small enough to be intimate, but large enough that you can bond with new friends over common interests.
On our Essentials range, we’ve kept things simple to give you amazing experiences at a great price.
As well as guided sightseeing of the key sites, there’s plenty of free time to explore independently or take part in optional excursions so you can focus on doing just the things that suit you. We’ve given you the flexibility to eat how you want too, by making most of the meals optional.
On your Essentials tour, you’ll be travelling the way the locals do to really get under the skin of your destination. Although we’ve kept costs down, these trips are far from slumming it, with accommodation spanning everything from dome tents to the occasional fancy hotel. Group sizes tend to be a little larger on our Essentials range to give you a social and fun travel experience with like-minded travellers.
A lot of our Essentials tours include a local payment. As well as keeping up front costs down for you, it means that even more of your money stays within the local area.
On our Tailor-made trips, we give you the flexibility and choice to do things just the way you want, all alongside the great service we’re famous for.
Whether you’re travelling solo, with a partner, family, extended family or as group of friends we’ll customise your arrangements to suit your exact needs and budget. Our Tailor-made trips are designed for your needs and you don't have to join other travellers like you would on a group tour. Just tell us what you’d like to see and when you’d like to go, and we’ll design the perfect holiday for you.
The Tailor-made itineraries we've suggested are designed to give you an idea of what you could do with us, they can be booked as they are, or adapted to suit you. If you'd like to change any aspect of the trips you see, please get in touch. If you aren’t quite sure of what you want to do, that’s no problem either! One of our experienced travel consultants can make suggestions then together you can tweak until it’s the perfect fit.
