    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.

    This was our 6th Gate1 trip and as always we were not disappointed. We enjoyed all aspects of the tour and had a wonderful trip with no problems. Gate1 does an excellent job and we will continue to use them for future travels.

    Our tour director was the best tour director. She's funny and witty. She accommodated our needs. Our driver is a superb driver. He kept us safe from any accident.

    All the points of interest were there,very knowledgeable guide Anna was amazing.  Absolutely loved it

    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.
