    I cannot say enough about Gate 1! Gate 1 is the only travel operator I travel with.

    Our London-Scotland tour with Gate 1 was wonderful! Out guide Christina was upbeat, informative and well-organized. Our driver, Allan, was excellent. as well. Our.accommodations were better than expected, I have dietary restrictions which were respected and managed at all meals.

    This Gate 1 tour was very good. Hotels were top notch. Any issue we had were not within the control of Gate 1. We did have a problem with the provided transfer from the airport. The transfer was not at the airport to pick us up and no would answer the phone number provide. Finally was able to leave a message and 2 hours later transporttion showed up. We would also prefer more options on the meals provided.

    Hectic schedule but very educational.
