We really enjoyed our Gate 1 river cruise. It was a great value for the money. Everything was as good or better than the Viking River Cruise we took the following week The crew was exceptional and the ship was clean and nice. The beds/pillows were the most comfortable we've ever had. Food was good with a nice variety. The trip through Belgium to Paris was a nice plus.


My husband, Peter, and I, together with two other couples took Gate 1's Monarch Countess, 7-day Amsterdam to Basel. It was a very well-organized Cruise. The staff were all pleasant and accommodating. The cabin and dining area were very clean. Our tour director Maarten was very knowledgeable and helpful. The activity host Nico was absolutely fun and energetic. We never had a dull moment aboard the riverboat. We used AT's emergency phone number when we couldn't find the embarkation point and our flight was delayed - and we got the response right away. Local tour guides in the included tour were very good except for the elderly lady in Mannheim. Affordable Tours = traveling for less, without sacrificing the quality. We will recommend Affordable Tours in a heartbeat. The invitation to review however, was only sent to my husband Peter, and he forwarded it to me. I wish that it was sent to me directly. I'm top 1% reviewer in NY for Trip Advisor. Actually I wanted to review Monarch Countess but it didn't pop up yet in TA's website.

Lots of walking, cobblestones, steps and hills. Few people if any changed clothing from their daytime tour for dinner.

I would suggest that the hotel in Paris be changed to an air conditioned hotel. The rooms were terribly uncomfortable

The entire process was efficient and professional. Brandon's email's were timely and detailed. A group of 6 booked and travel together; it was helpful to have one of our group reach out for questions and to book our excursions. She then emailed us afterward; this saved us time and I appreciated Affordable Tours embracing this process. The trip was AMAZING and the luck of having perfect spring weather was perfect. GATE 1 provided first class tours and guides. Early arrival to most attractions afforded us the opportunity to beat the crowds and have a perfect experience.
