    Awesome experience... knowledgeable and helpful tour guide (Hend), as well as all other employees.

    As always, everything went very smoothly.

    Great trip, loved the hotels and the service provided..

    Prompt, courteous, and professional service at a fair cost.

    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

    Gate 1 is really good at what it does.. Highly recommend.

    The trip and the experience exceeded our expectations. Both Affordable Tours and Gate 1 were outstanding.

    Gate 1 did a wonderful job of planning all the details so we could enjoy our experience. Well worth the money.

    The trip was excellent, well organized

    Gate 1 Discovery Tour was more than we expected, hotels were excellent, attraction entrance fees were all included. Couldn't be more pleased!

    Gate 1 was much better than I expected. I was really pleased with the tour and would consider traveling with them again.

    Alex was a super tour guide. The itinerary was full, enjoyable, interesting, and with the other travelers we truly enjoyed our trip. Thank you

    Affordable Tours took care of my booking and arranged my flights. It was handled efficiently and everything worked out beautifully.
