    Yes.

    You will often read that we do not use the BE going to future with the verbs go and come, using instead the present progressive/continuous. In fact, it is quite commonly heard.

    Later edit: Bhaisa had posted his answer before I finished typing mine. It's a good thing I gave the same answer!

    Could I have said "Just tell me when you go there."?
