    We do lots of escorted tours and of them all, Gate 1 is our favorite. They take you to places other tour groups take you, but it usually costs a little less.

    By Wayne T on Oct 11, 2019

    Loved this land tour with Gate1. There were a few other couples that had done Gate 1 tours and liked every one of them. I can see why. It was a great tour. The tour guide, provided meals, and rooms were excellent.

    By Patricia F on Oct 09, 2019

    This is the first group tour we have taken but will not be our last. Our Affordable Tours agent John was just great. The tour manager Giuliana and all of the local guides were amazing. This trip far exceeded our expectations. The hotels and transportation were top notch. After talking with people from other competing tour companies this far exceeded theirs. We couldn't be happier and are looking forward to our next tour with Gate1 through Affordable Tours.
