My name is Kenneth Walton Jernigan and this is my second trip with Gate 1. I absolutely loved my China trip, but can not say the same for my Amazon trip. The road was washed out so we never made it to the rain forest. I know this was not your fault and Javier did the best to make it right. It was not the rain forest and that was why I booked this trip. I did not care for Alvarado as our... Read more

Our experience with Gate 1 Travel was outstanding. The tour director, Simeon, was fantastic. He cared for each person, was extremely gracious and professional. He was always available with a smile on his face. Our travel was stress free because we were well cared for. The hotels were great and the transfers were easy. The trip itinerary was well planned and had wonderful tours. We had so... Read more

My sister-in-law and I traveled to Rio de Janeiro and visited Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, and the beaches of Ipanema, Copacabana and Leblon. Our tour director/guide for the whole trip was Alejandro. He was just wonderful and a delightful person. Alejandro is knowledgeable, organized and was helpful to everyone. He suggested restaurants for meals, shopping areas and places to go in our... Read more

I have used gate 1 three or four times and I am booked for a tour in September (Germany austria and Switzerland ) The tour directors have always been fine, but the director of this tour, pat Lynn quigg was outstanding. Not only was she knowledgable and funny, she managed a group of 37 people with grace, humor and efficiency. When the tour bus broke down in the middle of Wyoming within minutes... Read more

My wife and I just returned from a Gate 1 Discovery 12-day tour of Portugal and Spain. We are experienced European travelers and had previously taken guided tours of Italy and England-Scotland-Wales from two other companies. The highest praise that we can give this experience is that it exceeded our expectations in every way. By far the largest ingredient in our exceeded expectations was in the... Read more

To begin with, it just isn't enough to give this trip an excellent rating. It was so much better than any expectations I had before I went. Our Tour Manager, Jesus, and his helper, Pepe, were just the best. Every nuance of the trip was taken care of with care and speed. Jesus's commentary on the country and the individual cities we visited kept us enthralled with the history of Peru, with... Read more

Our Rhine River Cruise was spoiled by high water and became a tour by Bus. It was disappointing and our vacation was spoiled. Adding insult to injury was the cavalier attitude of Gate1 who refuse to engage in a dialogue and refer all complaints to email. My correspondence was met by a form letter offering $100 rebate on a future Gate1 tour. This is a fraction of the amount Gate1's literature... Read more

I have traveled with Gate 1 twice now...once on the river cruise in Russia from Moscow to St. Petersburg in 2011, then this past year on the Danube River cruise with the extensions in Poland and all the way to Berlin. I have already booked my 2015 trip with them to Thailand and Cambodia. Their service is remarkable. The guides are warm and accommodating as well as knowledgeable. The staff on the... Read more
