    Gate1 trips match their advertisements Their Tour Managers are always very attentive and helpful.

    Gate 1 always provides a wonderful service. It is just as they say it will be. So much to see.

    I did not worry at all before and during my trip because I always have good experience both with Affordable tour and Gate 1.

    We love Gate 1 tours. Excellent quality and value. Perfect itineraries.

    I have found Gate1 to be very reliable and a company that offers a variety of itineraries.

    This is our 7th or 8th trip with Gate 1. We have never been disappointed. Our guide, itinerary and travel experiences are outstanding!

    Gate1 was exceptional in every way. From the itinerary to the tour Director, everything was exactly as advertised, or better. Would definitely go with Gate1 again and highly recommend.

    Best trip ever Gate 1 exceeded my expectations

    We have traveled with Gate One 8 times and always had a good experience.

    Terrific guide, wonderful itinerary, another reason we continue to book with Gate1.

    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.
