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

    This was my fourth trip with Gate 1. Every trip has been above my expectations.

    Gate One guides are so efficient and knowledgeable,

    The Radisson Hotel was way above expectations and all others were very nice. The bus with wifi and charging ability was very nice and allowed me to share the trip with others while traveling. The food was extremely good and many more choices than expected. All flights, pickups and delivery were accomplished on time and with ease. The bag handlers were always there and made everything run smoothly with little effort on my part.

    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 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.
