    This is was my first time with Gate1 tours and I was really impressed by the service. Getting water, hand wipes, and snacks in the bus was just great. I have never received this in any of my other tours. Thank you Gate1 for a great trip to Thailand.

    By Orasa R on Mar 07, 2017

    We had a great time, the trip was wonderful.

    By Kwan H on Mar 07, 2017

    Great trip made excellent by a terrific tour guide/tour manager in Israel. He is highly knowledgeable of Christian, Islamic, and Jewish history and we felt as if we were sitting at the feet of a great teacher. He was funny, easygoing, caring, helpful, available 24/7, flexible, and overall just a wonderful person. I have never been more impressed or happy with a tour guide.

    By Paul A on Feb 20, 2017

    The overall trip was fabulous. The only downsides were: 1) The flight arrangements which had us arriving late in Tel Aviv (reached the hotel about midnight). 2) The hotel the 1st night was rather poor, very small rooms. Rather Spartan. Since we only spent a few hours in it, it was passable.

    By Joyce M on Feb 17, 2017

    We thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, organized, and friendly. Our driver was an excellent driver and very friendly. We spent enough time in each place and had enough free time. The local guides were all excellent. I highly recommend this tour.

    By Nancy G on Feb 15, 2017

    Gate 1 gives the same quality service as its competitors at a better price.

    By Anita W on Feb 13, 2017

    Very interesting trip that allowed for us to see and experience the various cultures of the countries we visited. Tour guides were excellent and provided much insight into the customs and history of the people. We were exposed to a variety of excursions that were included in the trip as well as several optional excursions that were well worth the cost and enhanced our experience.

    By Ewa S on Feb 03, 2017

    Our Tour Guide was the finest tour guide we have encountered in our vast travels. She spared no attention to detail and made our trip even more rich in its experience. I highly recommend Gate1!

    By Brett C on Feb 01, 2017

    Our tour guide from Gate1 was fabulous - very friendly, competent, and professional (as were her team of driver and helper). Her commentary was very knowledgeable and she supplemented much of her "patter" with handouts she had designed and samples (e.g. food bought at road-side stands - including rat!). I could not recommend her more highly! Plus, the accommodations were superb. One disappointment was Ayutthaya - the Summer Palace was great but the ruins not so impressive. Good to have some free time in Bangkok as well.

    By Patricia H on Jan 15, 2017

    Gate 1 was exceptional. Especially the hotels on our trip and the meals provided.

    By Diana B on Jan 06, 2017

    Our Gate 1 tour to India was the best trip I have ever taken! The country is fantastic to experience! Our guide has a master's degree in Indian History and taught us so much about the country and culture. The trip was effortless, everything was planned and taken care of for us. The hotels were great and the buses comfortable. We were very impressed with everything and will always try to travel with Gate 1.

    By Tanvir S on Jan 01, 2017

    This was my second trip with Gate 1 and the first by Affordable tours. I really enjoyed the tour and the tour guide was very professional and experienced. We felt safe with the group. They took very good care of us by making sure that everything is going well during our stay in Morocco. I would like to thank the Affordable tour's staff for helping us with our booking.

    By Fayyaz A on Dec 31, 2016

    It was a great trip offering a variety of experience including delicious Thai cuisine, tour of magnificent monuments, temples and ruins. Intimate experiences with elephants, spectacular view of mountain and rice fields. We were also able to visit a flower festival that was amazingly beautiful.

    By Josefa Anna O on Dec 28, 2016

    Ireland tour is so lovely. Fast paced value for money. Centrally located hotels. Lovely tour guide gave us free time to shop or wonder around. Looking forward to next trip
