    The Gate 1 Discovery tours are very good and well worth the extra cost. We had only 16 participants on the trip and everyone got along well. They used the large bus and everyone had their own seat if they wanted it. The hotels on trip were above average.

    Great trip for those that want to visit Normandie and the Mediterranean Coast of France. Plenty of time for lunches and shopping at most stops. Nice to have two nights at each stop.

    This was our first tour and it far exceeded our expectations! Our trip through Central Europe was amazing!! We would definitely book another trip with Gate 1.

    Always had good experience with Gate1. This was our 7th.

    Our travel advisor was great and was very friendly and responsive to all of our many questions. She made us feel at ease as she walked us through the process. The Gate 1 Tour Guide and driver for our trip were absolutely wonderful, they really added to the amazing experience we had for the two weeks. I would choose Affordable Tours and Gate 1 again, they were a winning combination.

    This trip was fantastic. My wife and I are indeed quite pleased with the entire trip. Iceland is very beautiful. We saw more than what was in the itinerary. The Tour Manager was excellent, no doubt about that. She made few stops on the way where the scenery was perfect for pictures or just for enjoying the nature. The actual tour started on the morning of day 2, after breakfast. We did not feel rushed when we went sightseeing. Lunch was arranged for us when we were in remote places. Every day, we were in the hotel before 6 pm so that there was enough time to rest/sleep after dinner or go outside for a walk after dinner (it was bright even after 11:30 pm in July). The local people are very friendly and all of them speak English. We have made many trips with Gate1 Travels in the past and we have not been disappointed and we plan to continue to use Gate1Travels in future.

    I believe Gate One Discovery Tours offer outstanding value & are specially suited for seniors.

    This was our first experience with a guided tour and it exceeded our expectations. The tour guide was very helpful, informative and caring. We enjoyed the trip so much that we'll probably repeated very soon.

    Gate One did a great job. Excellent tour director and hotels. Everything very positive.

    This is my 2nd tour trip with Gate 1 and I only have praises for their completed outstanding services. Everything was planned for just to ensure our enjoyment and security. They even have the extra arrangements for any assistance in emergency medical conditions. My husband came down with the early stage of pneumonia and the tour guide helped us from going to the hospital and staying with us the whole time and also got the local medical staff provided by Gate 1 to assist every single steps along the way. They even drove us to the pharmacy at midnight after the hospital discharged.

    Our Tour Director was outstanding! He ensured everyone on the tour had an enjoyable experience! I Would definitely travel with Gate 1 again.

    Excellent value for the money paid. Excellent guide! Great accommodations!

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