    We had a wonderful trip and we especially appreciated our tour guide in Vietnam, Tom. We're now looking into booking another trip with Gate1

    we have had a fantastic group interaction without exception it was one of the very nice tours we have had

    This trip was amazing, from the transportation to the accommodation everything was great. Some of the hotels were greatly located, excellent service and friendly staff. But by far what was best of all was the experienced and knowledgeable guides and competent drivers. I especially appreciated the great care from our Vietnam guide, Tom. He is a polite and friendly with a wonderful attention for detail. During one afternoon I fell ill and even though it wasn't anything serious Tom arranged for a doctor to check me out to be on the safe side. I would like to suggest that Gate 1 try to find a way to provide water to their tour clients using refills of water instead of disposable water bottles. Let's try to curtail the amount of plastic in this world.

    Our guide (Tom) throughout the trip went beyond and above his duty to take care of us every step throughout our journey. I can't say enough about him His loving spirit, his calm demeanor and his seemingly never ending energy. I cannot say enough about him. He was/phenomenal.

    Our tour manager, Victor was fabulous and he anticipated EACH OF THE GROUP MEMBERS NEEDS to the maximum

    We were lucked out with Flight timings & not too tight connections. Ideal traffic conditions. Had to change departing airport for one of the members in my family & Rick our travel coordinator did a wonderful job in changing flights for us effortlessly. Loved it.
