Unexpectedly, our tour manager Zouhair and his team made our first trip with Gate 1 full of good and happy memories. He went out of his way to make our trip memorable, fun-filled yet informative and educational. He is so proud of his country and very enthusiastic to share his vast knowledge of its geography, history and politics making us all see Morocco in a different light. Moreover, he looked after our safety and well-being at all times wherever we go and made sure that each participants' wish or expectation from this trip is met and fulfilled. At the end of our trip, we all bonded together like a big family and made traveling-friends for life. The highlight of this trip is how wonderful and generous of his time and effort our host Zouhair to make each one of us leave with greater appreciation of his country and culture.Amparo A.
Would like to take this opportunity to say a very special thanks to "Ben" our tour director for such a fantastic adventure. He along with are Driver and his Assistant went above and beyond every day. They all looked after us so well, took care of everyone's needs, so knowledgeable and informative, genuinely made us feel so welcome in there country just such an amazing adventure. Thank you so much. Looking forward to the next trip.Diana A.
My husband and I along with two of our friends had Chaouqi as our tour guide for the 8 Day Essential Morocco tour. He was absolutely amazing! He gave us all change pouches as a gift on the first day. Chaouqi was a true professional and through his love of country and culture, help us love this wonderful part of the world. He greeted us with a smile every day, was the local photographer for the entire group, and even kept us laughing in between our destinations. We managed to learn so much about this beautiful country and hope to return very soon with the rest of our family.Desha N.
This trip was beyond all expectations. Our driver and assistant on the motor coach were friendly and so helpful. My wife Mary and I want to make a special notice of Salmi our tour guide. Salmi, is one of the friendliest, knowledgeable, and professional guides we have ever had. He is an outstanding representative of Gate 1 in Morocco. From his knowledge, humor and patience there was nothing missing. By the end of the trip he was part of our family, from dancing with us to giving us insight into his country that we will never forget. We could go on with a long, long list of specifics but that would take up a long summary. Thanks Salmi from the bottom of our heart.Mark S.
I have been General Manager of a 5 star hotel property for 37 years. I am quick to recognize hospitality at its finest. This was my first Gate 1 trip. I am already considering which Gate 1 trip will be my next. It is very important to me that guide Driss get the kudos he earned for his pure professionalism, exceptional customer service and tour guidance. He was essential in delivering to this very grateful world traveler, and new Gate 1 customer, a life changing experience.Wendy P.
As a senior Captain for a major airline, I have traveled all over the world for work and pleasure. On my off days, my wife and I travel extensively, with me being the travel agent, organizer, tour guide, driver, sommelier and porter. Traveling to Morocco on an organized tour was never on our bucket list, but we absolutely loved everything about it. The people, the country, the tour guides, food, and hotels were all fabulous. Our tour manager, Driss, is a great human being who made our trip amazing. So amazing that we have already booked Gate 1 trips in the upcoming year to Peru, Costa Rica, India and Greece. Driss worked tirelessly to make sure everyone was well taken care of throughout the entire trip. Gate 1 exceeded our expectations on our first trip in every way, and we can't wait to travel with Gate 1 again.Richard S.
I went on a 15 day Moroccan Allure trip with you on 11/13/2021. Our tour director was Mr Abdellah. It was a truly phenomenal trip and we came home with wonderful memories of this beautiful country. We have been on many Gate 1 trips before and all your managers have been very good, but Abdellah was exceptional. He was so passionate about sharing in great detail everything about his country such as the culture, history, people, and way of life. He was SO HELPFUL to all the members of our group in every situation and paid personal attention to all. We are vegetarians. Abdellah would call each restaurant and give them specific cooking instructions in detail to make sure that we were taken care of. Despite Morocco being completely meat eating, we never felt we were missing a meal. He made sure we enjoyed the dining experience. He went above and beyond. I am writing to express my deep gratitude and compliment him for a job so well done and making our trip so enjoyable.Rajiv G.
We had an awesome trip. It was very organized and our tour leader Mohammed was such an excellent guide. We're very grateful to have Mohammed as our tour leader - one with an amazing sense of humanity. He was not just very knowledgeable about Moroccan history and culture, he was such a pleasant, kind, honest, caring, compassionate and protective tour leader who is very concerned about the needs of each and everyone of us. He really took care of us from our very first meeting all the way to our send-off at the airport in Casablanca. Needless to say, he made our trip a safe and truly enjoyable one with his own personal anecdotes and funny jokes. We bonded very well with other tour mates so much so that we plan to go back again to Morocco. Hats off to Mohammed and to Gate 1 travel.Adelia & Eduardo G. New York, NY
Our trip was fantastic! Mohammed was a wonderful tour manager and for the most part, the itinerary fit our expectations. We loved the opulence of our final hotel in Casablanca, it was a great send off.Nancy T. Hastings, MN
My trip was amazing! I loved it and had a most wonderful time. Our group was so friendly and fun to be with. We were all friendly and enjoyed each other’s company. We were really a family of sorts….. a cast of characters. :-) Our tour guide was the best I have ever had. Safi lead our group with his heart and it was evident in everything he did. He truly wanted us to have all that we wanted, and he did what he could to make it happen. He was there for us, and I felt very safe. He ran the tour very smoothly. What a lovely human being! I loved the variety of the places we stayed and the variety of the activities we did. The food was fabulous…… everything was. Gate 1 was waiting at the airport both on arrival and departure, easing any worries we may have had. I look forward to booking my next trip with Gate 1. A great experience!Joan C. New York, NY
My husband, Leonard, and I loved every moment of the Morocco trip!!! Rasheed was a fantastic tour leader. He took excellent care of all of us (his "family", as he called us during the tour). He was so knowledgeable about history, customs, culture, etc. , and patiently answered all questions as he explained everything to us. We loved everything we saw and did: from Rabat, Roman ruins, palaces, tombs, calls to prayer, stray cats, camels, snake charmers, belly dancers, Fez, mosaic factory, visit to school that Gate 1 supports, the desert, Atlas Mountains, wild apes, Berber villages, Marrakesh, Casablanca, camel ride through the Sahara Desert, to Erfoud, etc., etc., etc!!!! This trip was like no other that we have taken, and we would not hesitate to go on another Gate 1 Travel tour!!! Thank you all for doing such a great job!!!Susan M. Lake Frederick, VA
Gate 1 did it again, this was my 7th trip with you and still appreciate the services offered by Gate 1. We had a great time. Enjoyed ourselves mostly outside the big three cities of Rabat, Fez and Marrakesh. Our Tour Guide, Ben was very knowledgeable and informative. Looking forward to the Danube River Cruise in October with Gate 1 again.Bernard L. Sydney, Australia
Trip was amazing..our Guide was the best guide we have ever had on any trip we have taken with any company! He helped everyone everyday and was an A+ in every category to judge him!Michael C. Provincetown, MA
It was great! Amine is the BEST tour guide that we have ever had! He rates four stars! Our tour group was very compatible and engaging and everything went smoothly - without a hitch! Thank you for providing us with a very unforgettable experience in Morocco!Rena H. Malvern, PA
The trip was fantastic, and we had a wonderful time. The entire trip was very professionally organized, went like clock-work, and the Tour Manager – Yousef was excellent; polite knowledgeable and quite eloquent. He went out of his way to ensure all travelers were kept happy. All the hotels were pretty good as well. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for more.Anupama M. Ontario, Canada
The trip was amazing. Abdallah was an excellent manager. All of the local experts were very informative. Our driver and assistant were exceptional! I only wish that others throughout the world could benefit from the useful information and perspectives gleaned through interaction with those we meet on the tours! I’ve completed the survey, but wanted to reiterate that this was a wonderful experience!! I always recommend Gate 1, especially Discovery Tours, as friends always ask about my trips. Thanks so much. Looking forward to Egypt next month!!!Loyce Jane D. Conifer, CO
The trip to Morocco was amazing, Morocco is a very interesting country, the medinas in Fez and Marrakesh were fantastic and exotic with wonderful highlights, the group of people were very nice, and Chaouiqi has been the best tour guide, always so organized, always giving us a very good and clear information on every place that we visited, always so kind and helpful, always smiling, definitely Chaouiqi put the magic to the Morocco tour!

Our trip was fabulous! Our guide, Khalid, was excellent, a literal walking encyclopedia. Gate 1 never disappoints!

We are already planning another Gate 1 travel trip!Marta & Oleh D. Chatham, MA
It was great! Eddie and I thoroughly enjoyed our Moroccan trip. Our Guide Abdulkader was wonderful. He was so knowledgeable and willing to share his beautiful country. The local guides were also very good and informative. We saw and learned so much. The hotels and additional excursions were fabulous. This was our first trip with Gate 1, we were so impressed with the organization and professional operation. We have recommended Gate 1 to several friends. Eddie and I will certainly consider Gate 1 the next time we travel.Carol S. Tampa, FL
This is my 3rd time traveling with Gate 1. It was very nice and well organized. In our group was 38 Americans from all the states.

Morocco people are very friendly and the food excellent.Elena C. New York, NY

We really enjoyed experiencing the sights, culture and food of Morocco! This being our first trip with Gate 1, we were anxious about the trip but you made it such an easy, enjoyable and affordable experience with a lot of behind the scenes preparation. All of the staff were very professional, so helpful! Aziz was the perfect guide. several people in our tour group had traveled multiple times with you and were most complimentary. We look forward to another journey with you in the future. Thanks again for a rewarding experience.Linda and Edward L. Somerville, AL

Our trip was excellent and our tour guide Hecham was fantastic. We had a great time.Magda C. Goleta, CA
Morocco was a trip of a lifetime. We experienced all of Morocco, from shopping at the fabulous Medina’s, dinning with a Moroccan family, to walking the streets where Hercules lived. The hotels and food was superb. Our tour guide was amazing. Overall the experience was great. Gate 1 did a great job with this trip. I highly recommend this Discovery Tour.Charles R. Orlando, FL
The trip was excellent. It was well planned with a focus on discovering the many sides, faces, culture and cuisine of Morocco. The tour guide was knowledgeable, experienced and good nature which led to us becoming a cohesive group. I highly recommend it.Ildiko C. Great Neck, NY
Morocco was a wonderful vacation. Gate 1 is a fabulous host and provided us with an affordable, exotic, wonderful vacation. The tour guide on our Morocco trip, Hesham, he was so kind, open to answer ALL questions, upfront about the trip, and so professional. He made the trip even more enjoyable. The bus we rode on was new, the hotels were acceptable, and the additional excursions were great, as were the guides for those as well. My husband and I were happy that all the other tourists were friendly and very nice, we all became like family. We are so pleased with this vacation that we have made another trip with Gate 1 for July. We cannot wait.Suzanne T. Saint Louis, MO
Fantastic! Our guide, Abdel, was phenomenal. His English was very good. His sense of humor was excellent. Abdel was open to answering all of our questions and presenting Morocco in the best light always. He was very invested in showing us all an excellent time. I would rate him the best guide ever!!Rose J. Covington, WA
We had the best time in Morocco! It was our eighth trip with Gate 1 and they still continue to amaze us. Abdelkader was an incredible tour guide. He not only shared the country with us, he also educated us about the culture. We felt very well taken care of since all of our questions were answered and any help needed was given graciously. By the end of the trip we truly did feel like a family...Donna H. Harwich, MA
We had a wonderful time. This was our 4th Gate 1 trip and our 3rd with a guide. All of our Gate 1 trips have been great, as well as our guides too. Our guide for this trip was Abdel, an experienced, knowledgeable and caring guide. We had a large group (about 40) and he did an excellent job of keeping us informed, prompt and safe. Abdel has an extensive knowledge of Moroccan history, politics and tourism. He was caring and patient with us. For example, he took 20 minutes to tie our turbans so we looked “just right” when we rode camels into the Sahara. He knew each city intimately and advised us carefully and repeatedly how to avoid issues (like pickpockets and scammers) and how to have a safe fun trip. We also appreciate a few things that made the trip go smoother: - Abdel gave us electrical converters to use for our phones, cameras, etc. - Abdel had small bills of local currency available the first night so that we could exchange money with him for tips, etc ... We highly recommend Gate 1 in Morocco and Abdel as a guide.Lucinda W. Kansas City, MO
This 13 Day Kaleidoscope of Morocco was one of the best vacations I have had for many reasons. Our Tour Manager, Khalid, was an amazing Tour Manager. He had a lot of knowledge of Morocco, the history and the geography of the area. He shared a ton of information with our group. Khalid was patient, kind, and caring of every member of our group-- there were approximately 43 of us. I never felt un-safe or I never worried about any destination, thanks to Khalid. I was particularly impressed with our Local Guide in FEZ, Hesham (not sure if I've spelled his first name correctly). Hesham is one of the best spoken, knowledgeable tour guides I have EVER experienced. He is a brilliant scholar and communicator ... He was a highlight of this tour. Morocco is a wonderful destination. There is so much to see, experience, and enjoy, from the food, to the people, sights ... I would rate this Tour a 10+. Thank you, Gate 1 Travel for offering an affordable adventure to the beautiful land of Morocco.Denise M. Livonia, MI
It was outstanding! Amine was an amazing guide--knowledgeable, extremely organized as well as fun and, of course, Morocco is a fascinating destination.Carol A. Winter Park, FL
It was a fantastic trip. On our trip, our tour director was excellent. The hotels selected were far better than imagined. I have every intention of paying better attention to the Gate 1 Tour promotions in the future and do plan on traveling with you again. Thank you so much for making this “girls’ weekend” the most delightful one.Linda C. Syracuse, NY
Our trip with Gate 1 was absolutely wonderful. As a first-time group tour traveler, I did not know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. From the moment we arrived the staff was just fantastic, helpful, respectful and friendly. It was also great to have someone escort us almost all the way to the gate on the way back. Driss our guide was very knowledgeable, kept us interested, very friendly, smart, professional, detailed, authentic and down to earth. It was a pleasure to have him as a guide. Assis the assistant and Habib the driver were also incredibly helpful, professional and hardworking. Our comfort and security was always their priority. We were very grateful to have them as part of our staff. I also appreciate that Gate 1 has a very friendly process and the documentation was just perfect. The site is very friendly to navigate, and we were contacted in case of any changes. You guys are on top of things and that peace of mind will keep us coming back.Inga N. Guatemala City, Guatemala
It was phenomenal! Morocco exceeded my expectations, thanks to our tour guide Mohammed. He was very knowledgeable, patient, funny and took the absolute best care of everyone. I was duly impressed by the level of service we received. I'll definitely be using Gate 1 for future vacations!Meutrice H. St Thomas, VI
Our trip was fabulous. Morocco is a fascinating country. We saw wonderful sights and learned much about the culture, history, geography, and it’s people. Our guide, Amine, was top-notch. He was extremely organized, flexible, informative, and had a great sense of humor. Many aspects and activities were surprising like the cooking class, hidden Riad hotels, and the desert experience surpassed our expectations!Bonnie M. Philadelphia, PA
The Morocco Allure Discovery was probably the coolest tour I have ever been on. It seemed there was always some fabulous activity next to go too. The food was very good and the hotels were exotic and comfortable. Amine our tour manager, well, you're very lucky to have him. Loved Morocco!!!!Susan C. Chula Vista, CA
It was a wonderful trip. Our guide was the best, he knew people everywhere. You can tell he really enjoys his work.....I would travel with him again in a heartbeat. The hotels were great and of course the Sahara was the highlight of the trip. This trip will be hard to beat...Julie M. San Diego, CA
Our trip was wonderful! I cannot say enough about our guide Ibrahim. His breadth of knowledge and great personality made him a fantastic ambassador for both Morocco and Gate 1. This was our first time doing a tour so we were not sure what to expect. Ibrahim was great about letting us know exactly what to expect for the day. Everything was very timely and smooth, even when Ibrahim was dealing with special details for people in the group (late flight arrivals, lost luggage, early departures, etc). We appreciate the amazing hotels, the nice food/drink, the comfortable bus, some flexibility on certain days and the knowledgeable city guides on this Gate 1 tour.Amy J. Pleasanton, CA
It was probably one of our best trips ever!! Morocco was absolutely beautiful. The size of our group was perfect. Our group itself were very cohesive, it was amazing. Our guide Mohammed was so kind and thoughtful that I think we all came back spoiled rotten. So much fun!Yvette F. Los Angeles, CA
We had a great trip to Morocco! Ali, our guide was a gem! We are very impressed! All of our city guides were excellent, too! This was our 1st Discovery trip (out of 4) and we plan to use this experience as our template for future Gate 1 trips. We felt very well cared for!!!Bill B. Ossining, NY
It was awesome. Our tour guide Sninat from Morocco was extremely knowledgeable, available, courteous and helpful. It really made our experience even more memorable! Way to go Gate 1 Travel! Looking forward to my next trip with you guys.Mildred P. New York, NY
Our trip was terrific! Our guide Khalid Lamdira was outstanding. Beyond patient with a large group of people, an itinerary and schedule that met everyone's needs, good-natured and funny while also sharing a wealth of information about Morocco. He really went above and beyond the expectations of a tour guide. And a special shout out to the bus driver - who was never on his cell phone and drove safely - and the assistant for taking such good care of us; keeping us hydrated with plenty of bottled water, the bus clean, and helping us with our luggage. We will enthusiastically recommend Gate 1 to our friends. Thank you!Maya P. Floresville, TX
The Morocco trip was a great adventure! Our guide, Khalid, was very knowledgeable, extremely patient and went above and beyond the call of duty to assist the guests with a variety of concerns. The weather was perfect throughout the trip. I chose 4 of the 5 optional trips and was happy with all the choices. I am amazed that the price for the 13 days was so affordable. Morocco is such a beautiful country— a very pleasant surprise...Looking forward to another trip with you!Trudy M. St Petersburg, FL
The trip was wonderful. Morocco was a delightful surprises that has it all .... green valleys and hills, snow capped mountains, coast lines and that famous desert! Our guide, Hassan Moustaid, was so gracious and so well organized. His knowledge of his country was amazing. The food was overall good, but that on the options outstanding. Finally, I can't say enough about the sunset camel ride into the Sahara! An evening to remember. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in that part of the world. It was wonderful!Jenna K. Greenville, SC
It was a great tour of Morocco. Hesham was a truly fabulous guide. Bus driver, Azziz, and assistant, Hosnie, were excellent. The hotel accommodations (some with swimming pools) and restaurants very good. Pace was a bit fast for me, but the trip overall was just what I had hoped for. Shopping opportunities in nearly every city. Lots of lovely sweet mint tea and great coffee au lait. Hesham guided us to ATM's at banks (to anticipate any problems - but there were none). Lots of history and cultural learning along the way. I am now resting up from such a great trip. I plan to take another Gate 1 tour.Bruce B. Blue Bell, PA
