Gondola Ride

One of the experiences of any Italian holiday is a Venetian gondola ride. For centuries, the traditional flat bottom boat has been a major means of transportation in Venice though its primary role today is to take tourists on rides. Gondoliers may seem like "rough-and-ready" characters, however they are actually highly skilled operators constantly working on the perfect balance of this watercraft. The profession, handed down from generation to generation, is regulated by a guild which issues a limited number of licenses to highly trained gondoliers to navigate the narrow spaces of the Venetian canals. Explore part of the Grand Canal as well as some other hidden minor waterways. The gondola holds a maximum of six passengers. Please note that this is not a private gondola ride. Your gondolier will indicate the seating arrangements to balance the boat and you may not be seated next to your travel companions. Though you may envision the gondolier singing to you, there will only be a musician aboard one of the boats in your fleet of several different gondolas.

Pick-up details to be advised locally. Approximate tour duration is 30 minutes.

For centuries, the traditional flat bottom boat has been a major means of transportation in Venice though its primary role today is to take tourists on rides. Gondoliers may seem like "rough-and-ready" characters, however they are actually highly skilled operators constantly working on the perfect balance of this watercraft. The profession, handed down from generation to generation, is regulated by a guild which issues a limited number of licenses to highly trained gondoliers to navigate the narrow spaces of the Venetian canals. Explore part of the Grand Canal as well as some other hidden minor waterways. The gondola holds a maximum of six passengers. Please note that this is not a private gondola ride. Your gondolier will indicate the seating arrangements to balance the boat and you may not be seated next to your travel companions. Though you may envision the gondolier singing to you, there will only be a musician aboard one of the boats in your fleet of several different gondolas.

Pick-up details to be advised locally. Approximate tour duration is 30 minutes.

Out trip was amazing! Greatly due to Duane and Dado. Dado made me feel so relaxed with his driving, always attentive in regards to safety and making each of us comfortable. Duane, where do I start...he made our trip. His upbeat enthusiasm kept everyone in the group enthralled. We would LOVE to have him guiding every tour that we will be talking with Gate 1 in the future. Whoever we get in the future will have some BIG shoes to fill. He is the one that has us sold on Gate 1. Thank y'all so much for taking the time to make sure your guides and drivers are the best!

We took the 13 Day Affordable Croatia & Slovenia with Venice and we had a great time. Our tour manager in Croatia & Slovenia, Primoz , was outstanding and fun! Our tour manager in Venice, Arianna , was excellent. She showed her city with pride and love. We walked the tiny streets with her and she pointed out interesting things in detail. She saw to it that we checked in the airport on our trip back. And most of all, she accompanied us to get our VAT refunds. Great job Arianna!! Gate 1 delivered our best expectations again!!

I will be very happy to share with you and other travelers our experience on our Gate One Tour to Croatia, Slovenia and Venice. We have been traveling extensively for over 30 years and have had some great experiences both on our own and with Gate One. BUT THIS TOUR WAS THE BEST and here is why; Ana, your Tour Manager is well organized, has a delightful personality that everyone on the Tour loved, played a significant role with bringing all 20 of us together into what felt like a family and helped keep everyone organized and on schedule and Ana knew the area that we travelled and encouraged and enjoyed questions as well as input. Gate One is very lucky to have Ana on your team and we were very fortunate to be part of her Tour Group.

He made sure we saw the most important sites, took care of all our needs, explained things quite well and answered everyone's questions completely. He really worked hard to make sure we understood the local history and traditions and made us fell like a family. The travel arrangements and hotels were fine, and our driver, Deno, was exceptional.

I had such a great experience taking my first tour with Gate 1 Travel. Your company was recommended by a friend. The reason we chose your company was not only the high recommendation but the price, which we thought was very reasonable and within our budget. I went with 3 others, a friend and my sister and brother-in-law. Everything was great as you can see by my evaluation, but I wanted to comment on Josip, our Tour Manager. He made our trip extra special. Everyone on our tour felt the same way. He was knowledgeable, kind, caring , funny, thoughtful and very approachable. My sister and I our twins and we had a birthday on the trip. He made it extra special. One we will never forget. Thank you Gate 1 for such a wonderful vacation. I have told family members and friends to choose Gate 1 for their next vacation.

I want to convey my appreciation to Gate 1 for a trip well done. This was a 10 day Croatia and Slovenia escorted tour on April 15. Tour Manager Duan was energetic, friendly and knowledgeable, Driver Vlado was fantastic with his driving skills and always professional. Every one of the local guides were also great: Valentina in Zagreb, Simone in Ljubljana, Katrina in Plitvic Lake, Damir in Split, Petra in Dubrovnik. Gate 1 truly lives up to its motto as "More of the world for Less" affordable without sacrificing quality. The entire trip went smoothly, even during a nearby 5.7 earthquake which affected Dubrovnik where we felt the shake at our hotel around midnight, Duan was in the hotel lobby to ensure our safety or concerns shall we need it. I will continue to spread the word of Gate 1 to anyone I know wanting to travel. I look forward to my next trip in September. Go Gate 1!!

I would just like to add a comment to reinforce the "radio button" survey. Even though I had high expectations, this trip, and especially our tour manager, Biljana , FAR exceeded our expectations. Her knowledge, demeanor and management skills were beyond reproach. She transformed challenges into entertaining outcomes and turned a beautiful and amazing part of the world into a series of unforgettable experiences. I have usually planned my own trips, but if other Gate1 tour managers have even a portion of Biljana's knowledge and skills, I am more than sold on the idea of taking other trips with Gate1.

Kristjian was consistently warm, approachable and incredibly knowledgeable about everything about the countries and features we encountered on this trip. Kresho was a thoroughly professional driver -- reassuringly safe (especially on those steep, narrow mountain roads), patient under trying traffic circumstances, and he knows exactly how to harness his bus's capabilities (turning radius, etc.) Our city guides were also excellent.

We absolutely loved the itinerary, how coordinated and organized everything was, how taken care of we were, how I never felt stressed about figuring anything out during the trip, and especially our guide Blaz. He was easy to understand and get along with, funny, smart, and did a great job at taking care of us. I don't have another tour guide to compare him to, but another couple on the trip who have done 3 other Gate 1 trips said he was their favorite guide by far. Blaz was really wonderful and made our fantastic trip all the better. We're excited to book our next Gate 1 trip soon! Thank you for the nice memories.

I have recently returned from a Gate 1 trip to Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, and Slovenia. My sister talked me into taking the trip with Gate 1. She had used Gate 1 for four previous trips and was very happy with the performance. I had never taken a trip with a company. I had always traveled on a shoestring and luck. Now at the age of 76 I was ready to have someone else handle the trip. I was completely blown away by the trip with Gate 1 Travel. The hotels were beautiful, the breakfasts in the hotels were fantastic, the tour guides were outstanding, especially our guide Nicolina who is the brightest (speaking 3 languages and a college education), most knowledgeable. outgoing person I have ever met. My father was from Croatia coming to the US in 1989. My sister and I have talked about going to Croation for 50 years. We finally did it and out association with Gate 1 Travel made it the best and most joyous trip I have ever experienced. I am currently looking into a Gate 1 Travel trip to Greece this fall.

Well, what can I say? My trip was one of the best tours ever with gate1. There were so many circumstances that made it awesome but my top three was #1 Our tour guide Tina ..phenomenal. #2..the people I met on the tour which I've already made reservations for another Gate1 tour in February and #3..Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro was absolutely gorgeous. The weather was perfect. Our driver Vlato was an exceptional driver daily. Gate1 made my 50th birthday very special for me and I would never forget it. I've referred a lot of my friends to Gate1 just because you feel included in every situation and they have your best interest at heart. I've learned a lot about all places visited during the tour and the hotels and the food I have no complaints at all. Our group of people 20 was the perfect size. There was no drama, no talk of politics which can make a trip very unsuccessful and we all got along and respected each others time and value that the tour after the stress of the pandemic was very important for everyone. I'm excited already for my upcoming trip in February to Spain and I know that there will be two more trips in 2022 with gate1. So, I just want to say, keep doing what you guys do. Will continue to spread the word of Gate1 with all my hospital family and friends.

The entire trip to the Dalmatian Islands, Croatia and Slovenia was so captivating, richly described by Edo P, our Tour Manager, he was more like a buddy, full of humor, had the historical details fully covered, was hilarious, kept us safe, on track, on schedule and always went that extra mile to lend us a hand when climbing steps, found my hearing aid batteries and arranged for hot water kettle whenever needed. The dinners were opulent and extraordinary. The driver, Mr. Davor and Edo P work as a very well orchestrated team that I have never seen before. Its Edo who is the face of Gate 1 to us. Its the simple things he did that made this trip the most remembered trip. I have had many Gate 1 trips this one was the overall best. Thank to Edo. He is your finest asset. We may go to Croatia and Slovenia again because of Edo.

We are still trying to catch up with the time and the many things that need attending to during our travels. Susan and I had a wonderful time exploring the sights and tasting the cuisines of the places that we visited. All of our trips give us an insight into the people and places where we find ourselves. This trip was no different. Each country and city has its own character in which to enjoy and experience. Croatia had beautiful vistas along the coasts. And of course, Venice is unique. There is nothing like Venice. Susan and I probably crossed about 100 of the bridges in Venice catching up on the sights we had seen in a previous trip. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in learning about other cultures and tasting their foods. It was very enjoyable. Our tour director Rok was excellent.

This was yet another fun and exciting vacation from Gate 1 Travel in what were some of the most scenic, must-see destinations in Europe. I had an absolute blast walking the ancient walls of Dubrovnik, trekking the paths of Plitvice Lakes, and riding the electric train through the Postojna Caves. This tour was made even more special by our outstanding tour guide Tina, who had a wealth of knowledge about the region and kept us entertained with her singing, stories, and humor. She always had a warm, friendly smile despite having to deal with the often demanding personalities of 42 travelers. She gave each one of us individual attention and made us feel like family.

In particular I would like to acknowledge our tour leader Elvis and coach driver Robert. These two gentlemen were a credit to Gate 1 Travel. Elvis’ knowledge was outstanding and nothing asked of him was too much trouble. Robert’s expert driving on some very difficult roads was amazing. I felt very safe at all times. Thanks to them I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday. They were very professional but at the same time made you feel part of a family. My heartfelt thanks to them both. To Gate 1 Travel itself, the professionalism in the way everything was organized was faultless. I knew we had a transfer from the hotel to the ferry terminal but was surprised to find an assistant waiting for us at the terminal to escort us directly to Qatar’s departure check-in counter. Absolutely brilliant, especially as we were the last two in the group to depart for home (Perth WA).

This trip was fabulous. Croatia and Slovena are beautiful and relaxing places. This was a small group of 20 people who were very friendly...Gate 1 allows for just enough free time and unlike other tour companies we did not spend a majority of the vacation on the bus getting from one place to the next. 2+ nights in some places added to the feeling of seeing a place. Hotels were all really close to center of things. Our hotel in Venice was literally a 3 minute walk to St. Mark’s Square. Our tour guide was funny, friendly and had a wealth of knowledge about all the places we went to. Local guides added variety to the tours.

He was entertaining and funny, with a wide knowledge of history, -not just his part of the world, but also the US and beyond. Maybe the best guided trip ever.

Once again we are 100% satisfied with your services. Croatia and Slovenia are both breathtaking offering the best of the Croatian Riviera and the Julian Alps. Our guide Elvis was awesome. Beaches, gardens, churches, architecture, outdoor cafes, open air markets, castles, forts, snow topped mountains, robust coffee, creamy gelato and so much more gave us everlasting memories. Looking forward to our next trip with Gate 1.
