We chose Korean Airline and not once were we informed by gate 1 that this airline ticket would not enable us to receive sky miles as this airline was a partner with Delta Airlines no told to the agent booking this...

The full day in Fez in definitely a full day of walking. Should said a extreme amount off walking and once you get off bus in morning you don't see bus for 8 hours. The pace was a healthy European walk on very uneven surface. The older purple had a hard time. One lady had a cane and wanted to stop but couldn't because we entered the medina and existed on the other end. It was a maze once you got... Read more

Javier met us at the airport in Quito and from the start we felt totally comfortable and well taken care of with him. He is such a wonderful guide, also compassionate and caring, along with his extensive knowledge of the country he also manages to be very helpful. We just got back from our trip a few days ago, and I wanted to write about it ASAP. The trip was great, we were able to see and do... Read more

This was my second guided tour I have ever taken and this trip was excellent. It was very fast paced which caused many of us to be a little tired throughout the trip, but it packed so much in to such a small amount of time. The tour guide Patricio was amesome. He has great knowledge about Ecuador. He was always upbeat and made the trip very memorable. He mixed just the right amount of... Read more

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
