    Overall, the trip was exceptional. The tour guide Riccardo was outstanding...very friendly, caring and knowledgeable about the areas visiting. The accommodations in Bari and Napoli were disappointing. In Bari, the room at Grande Albergo delle Nazario was extremely small which made it difficult to manage suitcases for 2 people. In Napoli, the room at Hotel Royal Continental certainly needed updating. The overall appearance of the room looked worn and a little shabby. However, the condition of these 2 rooms did not affect the great time we had. Will definitely travel with Gate 1 again.

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

    As always, everything went very smoothly.

    This trip was fantastic. It was packed with lots of activities and places to see. Unfortunately, weather plays a big role in what you see and don't see. We weren't able to visit Robben Island due to choppy water and couldn't see much of Victoria Falls due to rain/fog. But I'm not complaining, that's just how things go. Other than that, the itinerary was very fast paced and we got to see a lot, which was desired. The tour was very organized and our group leader, Ahmet, was very knowledgable of the places we visited. I would recommend the game drive in Botswana over the game drive in South Africa. The food and drink was quite good from the included meals. Ahmet did his best to accomodate everyone. I'd recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see as much as possible in such a short time frame. The schedule is strict but well worth the sights.

    Wonderful experience, with well informed tour managers. Everything went according to plan, no big surprises or changes on this trip. Good job.

    My group and I had a wonderful time visiting Iceland, none of us wanted to leave. The hotel, although basic, was clean and very comfortable. The sights and excursions were breathtaking. Tour guides were pleasant and knowledgeable.

    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.
