    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.

    Some of the excursions not so good or lived up to expectations such as hidden treasures and the fountains tour, otherwise outstanding.

    If you want good service and the best experience ever, please book with Affordable tours. They take really good care of their customers. I went to Italy with Gate 1 and I must say that everything was well organized. My tour guy, Maximiliano was wonderful. Italy was amazing. I will definitely traveling again to Europe with Gate 1.

    Exceeded our expectations! Or tour manager, Letty, was a true gem and the guides at the individual sites were amazing. So many unexpected treats, and the folks on our tour were so fun to be with.
