    Absolutely the best trip I have ever taken. Gate one discovery tours more than covered everything I could expect. Will tour with them again.

    I had a wonderful time on the tour. The itinerary was busy but we were able to see so much of Spain. Our tour manager was wonderful. She kept us on schedule and took great care of us. She was very helpful with an issues that came up. She really made the experience great! The local tour guides were all excellent. We learned so much about the history and culture of the areas we visited.

    Well organised and well planned Tour with a knowledgeable Tour director. I highly recommend Gate-1 Travels. .

    Gate1 tours is the best. Our tour manager was exceptional and the us driver was outstanding

    Excellent itineraries and very well organized

    Gate1 one does a great job, this tour exceeded our expectations, mainly because of our tour manager who made sure everyone stayed happy, he truly loves his job!

    Wonderful trip and had so much fun

    I have always liked Affordable tours and will continue to use this agency for future travels. Thank you very much

    Overall, the tour manager was very organized . Greatly appreciate providing COVID testing in the hotel.

    We had a great time in Egypt and a great time with Gate 1. The tour manager was wonderful - professional, organized, knowledgeable and caring. The trip itself covered all the things we wanted to see and the services provided by Gate 1 were handled really well. The one weakness for us was the Nile cruise on the Esplanade. It was fine, but not what I'd call "top-notch". The ship was clean and the staff pleasant, which was the most important part of the cruise to us. However, we found the food was pretty unappealing. The restaurant meals provided by Gate 1 were consistently good- interesting places and good food. The hotels provided by Gate 1 were also nice and in good locations. I would definitely take another trip with Gate 1 and would recommend it to others.

    Everything was good. The mountain location of the Monteverde hotel was good for an excellent Sunset, but very difficult to move around.

    We have travel world with 21 cruise tours. We were skeptical about traveling with Gate1, but with friends recommendation, we travel 1st time With Gate1 on 13 Egypt with 7 day Nile cruise Dec28-Jan9 2022. We were in total surprise. The Hotels, Itinerary, safety concerns were fabulous. Our tour manager was God sent and was always concerned for safety, detail oriented, knowledgeable and always enthusiastic and bend backward to help. He is best asset to Gate1 and deserves recognition. The way he was praising Gate 1, I thought he owned it. We are already planning for other Gate 1 trip. You can share my comments with Gate1

    This was my first time traveling with Gate 1 through Affordable Tours and everything thing went like clockwork. My trip took me to Ireland and I had a fantastic time! There were hardly any glitches but when there was our tour guide did everything in his power to accommodate.
