I just wanted to send some positive feedback on my Gate 1 vacation to Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, and London. My husband and I had a wonderful time, and we are already thinking of our next trip we will take through Gate1!! I loved the city tours, and that we also had a lot of free time to explore on our own. Our main tour guide throughout our trip, Marc, was exceptional! There are no words to effectively communicate how truly wonderful he was to all of our group, how smoothly everything ran because of him, and how care-free I could be on this trip due to his knowledge, anticipation, suggestions, information etc. He was so funny, positive, and full of great information. I really had such a wonderful and unique experience, and look forward to our next adventure.Kami S.
I want Gate 1 to know about the extraordinary tour manager, Farid and bus driver, Bart that are in your employ. This was the 6th tour with Gate 1 and I've always been pleased. But Farid went above and beyond in providing us individual WRITTEN daily agendas, essential details such as phone numbers for emergencies, consulates, & hotels with information for public transportation that included the Station and Lines to points of interest. There are no words to explain how valuable that information was to me, enabling me to feel confident in cities where I don't speak the language. I sincerely wish that all tour managers would provide this detailed information, although I know that this preparation is done on one's own time and shouldn't be expected. We had 5 birthdays and Easter during my trip and was astounded at the generosity of Farid & Bart in the celebrations. I would also like to mention that they were both extremely professional and had great senses of humor! All in all, they truly are Gate 1's best assets and am hopeful that I may have the pleasure of another tour with them someday!Sharon H.
The trip was the BEST!!!! I went with 2 of my friends. We all had our own rooms. The Hotels were great and the staff was fantastic. The tours included in the package were great, we also did additional tours. The free time we had allowed us to mingle with the town folks and explore the cities at our leisure. The very best part was our Tour Manager Vic. His home was France, he knew everything about France and all the other countries were visited. He was fun, experienced, and knowledgeable about everything!! The other people traveling on the tour were the nicest!! from all over the world. I am looking forward to my next experience with Gate 1. Can not wait to check out some more trips.Linda Y. Detroit, MI
The trip was excellent. We enjoyed every facet of it. The timelines, convenience, professionalism of every detail was beyond words. The tour guide Romaine, was exceptional. From the welcome dinner to the farewell, he did such a magnificent job, we have nothing but praises for him (he engaged everybody). We are looking to do another tour where he’s available. 5 stars to Gate 1 and to Romaine as well.Pamela P. Lantana, FL
We couldn't have asked for more on our dream vacation with my sisters. Our guide Vic and the bus driver were on top of everything. We didn't have to worry about a thing. Accommodations were great, food and information were all spectacular. Thank you Gate 1 for another amazing trip.Laurene & Donald G. Wareham, MA
Our trip was wonderful! We did and saw so much that I want to go back now to just relax! Our guide, Arjan, was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He kept everyone upbeat. We added four additional activities, which were all amazing. We will travel again with Gate 1 in the future.Vicki B. Andover, MN
Our trip to Europe was wonderful! Our tour manager, Nicholas, is an amazing person; his history/geography knowledge and customer service was beyond expectation. Very well organized tours, we sure will travel with Gate 1 again.Linda P. Westminster, CA
Trip was excellent! Gate 1 did a great job. The tour guide Romain was great and took very good care of us all. We will definitely use Gate 1 travel again. Thanks for an excellent 20th Anniversary trip from my wife and I.Edward J. Cary, NC
Our 10 day Classic tour was a family trip arranged to celebrate our granddaughter’s high school graduation ... All arrangements throughout the trip were seamless. Each city tour allowed time for photo opps and the optional excursions were well worth the price. Hotels were great, especially the Apollo in Amsterdam ... Our guide, Anita van Vliet, was amazing ... She handled unanticipated problems efficiently and always showed concern for the welfare of her clients ... Her professionalism and knowledge was obvious. Our bus driver, Moe, should also be acknowledged for his professionalism and generosity. He went above and beyond when a member of the group left a passport in a hotel safe. Gate 1 is very affordable, yet first class in so many ways, and I would not hesitate to recommend Gate 1 to anyone ... Thanks for everything!Carole P. Salado, TX
In one word I would have to describe our excursion as, "exquisite."... We enjoyed learning about the history of important landmarks, relics, and culture of each country we toured. We were extremely pleased with the location of each hotel in proximity to various landmarks, shopping centers and restaurants ... Furthermore our tour manager Mr. Arjan, along with our tour guides, poured their heart into disseminating facts about the history of each country ... This was our very first Gate 1 travel tour and I can't wait to replicate our experience from being on the London to Amsterdam tour in the near future. We can't stop talking about our experience with friends and family.Sonia J. Brooklyn, NY
Our first trip with Gate 1 was absolutely amazing! It was our first trip to Europe ... We are extremely grateful for our most excellent tour guide, Romain. He was very professional and took great care of our needs and tour logistics. In fact, would love to do another tour with him as our guide. We had the best ground transfer crews and local guides. I can’t wait to plan another trip with Gate 1 and I will recommend Gate 1 to all my friends. Thank you for helping me to plan a most memorable trip and experience.Cheryl M. Fremont, CA
Our trip was great! Adorom, our tour director, was very professional and knowledgeable and made our trip exciting, comfortable and flawless. This was our first trip with Gate 1 and my wife and I were very pleased.Mike M. Bristol, CT
My wife and I had a wonderful time on our honeymoon. I also want to add that our tour manager, Wesley, was amazing! He honestly made the trip for us with his organization, knowledge of the areas, humor, and overall willingness to do what needed to be done to ensure everyone enjoyed themselves. Our experience has us sold on taking another trip with Gate1 in the future.Robert B. Charolette, NC
The trip from Amsterdam to London was perfectly paced, and quite enjoyable. Loved every moment! Ever charmed by Bruges and Paris, shear delights. Even a rainy London proved invigoratingly stimulating. A delightful excursion.Cedric R. Fredericksbrg, VA
Our trip was very nice. We were especially happy with our Tour Manager, Adoram. He was the best one we've had in our 8 trips with Gate1!Victoria B. Rosemount, MN
Our trip could not have been any better. From landing in Amsterdam to the time we left Paris we were treated like royalty. Our tour director, Adaram was amazing! We felt so lucky to have him leading our way through Europe. He is extremely knowledgeable and a total class act. He’s a true All Pro. Pasquel, our driver falls in the same category. We felt safe and taken care of beyond our expectations. Those two work together so well. It’s really tough to find people of their caliber. I also wanted to mention our tour guide at Versailles, Nicklaus, was by far the best tour guide I have ever been around. That guy is very interesting and entertaining. My trip was complete after experiencing Versailles under his leadership. I really was impressed with GATE 1. This is a first class operation and I will continue to spread the word!!!Rita K. Lakeland, FL
Trip was fabulous. Seamless, from start to finish. Our tour guide Aryan was wonderful, informative, accommodating and he just made the trip one of our best.Gary P. Somers, NY
My Trip was wonderful, the tour manager (Romaine) was excellent with a great sense of humor, knowledgeable and sensitive towards the passenger's needs and inquiries. Hotels were very clean and accommodation were good. Would definitely do another trip with Gate 1.Ramona P. Flushing, NY
It was a wonderful trip thanks to our guide, Jean. He was superb; well organized, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the history as well as everyday problems we may face in visited cities. Great job, Gate 1!Bozena C. Redmond, WA
I loved the trip. Enjoyed going to new cities and revisiting others. Our tour guide and the local guides were fantastic. Can't wait for my next gate 1 trip!Lidia G. Brooklyn, NY
Our tour guide Arjan was absolutely the best! Very knowledgeable and so fun. Would recommend this trip to friends and family.Eny K. Litchfield Pk, AZ

It was great! Everything we could have asked for and more! The accommodations were clean and comfortable and our guides and tour director Arjan were exceptional. We are saving money for our next trip! Thank you!Cathleen B. Chatham, NJ
The trip was wonderful. The tour was organized perfectly, and the accommodations were very good. What makes the trip enjoyable is Mr. Naciri, whose knowledge of the places visited was impeccable, and his friendly helpful and joyous nature puts everyone at ease. Mr. Naciri is your hidden gem. Overall, I would recommend Gate 1 to all my friends and we will likely sign on with Gate 1 for our next trip. We had a wonderful time.Frances L. Mukilteo, WA
Our trip was so much fun! Tour guides were very knowledgeable. We especially liked our tour guides in London and in Versailles, very witty and animated. We hope to use you guys again for another trip! Farid was a great tour manager, he was able to help us out with general knowledge of every city we went to.Patrick L. S San Fran, CA
Trip was amazing. Our tour guide Derrick made it very memorable and had a lot of information that we would otherwise not have known. I enjoyed all the countries and the spots were chosen well Thank you for a great trip.Rose C. Corp Christi, TX
We had a great time! Our tour guide Farid was the best!! He made everything special for everyone. I will definitely book with you guys again.Liza M. Carson, CA
Fantastic. Our tour guide Fardi Naciri, is the best. He went beyond his time to assist each of us. Great hotels., great food. Wonderful experiencesLesly M. Scottsbluff, NE
Our Europe trip with Gate 1 was beyond our expectations! This was our first trip to Europe and we were a little nervous but everything went perfectly. Clare, our tour guide, was wonderful! She was so informative and handled everything so efficiently it was like traveling with a friend---that knew where she was going! We had beautiful hotels and great meals in each country. The transportation was on time, clean, and comfortable cars and coaches. Thank you for setting up this tour for us. We have already recommended Gate 1 to our friends.Sylvia P. Rockwall, TX
Our European vacation was awesome!
This was our third trip with Gate 1 and once again we were most pleased. Our guide Robert took care of all the details, the bus driver was a very skilled driver, the hotels were top notch & well situated.
We recommend Gate 1 to all our friends & family & we are looking forward to many more trips with the company.William H. Somerset, MA
It was absolutely GREAT! We loved our Gate 1 Israel trip last year, and this one was just as fantastic. I don't know how you do it, but your Tour Managers were simply superb. Such knowledge, such organization, such personality!!! We could not be more pleased. The sites are great, but with such incredible guides, the experience is made even greater. Gate 1 does a fantastic job!Gregory B. Bastrop, TX
We had a wonderful trip! Our hotel accommodations were lovely and very conveniently located! Our trip leader Nino was wonderful! He was so organized, available and took extra time to show us around our hotels...so we could take public transportation.
Nino seemed to anticipate our needs and he took a lot of extra time to explain things very clearly to us! This was our third trip with Gate 1 and we have been very pleased each time!Arthur D. Palm Coast, FL
Enjoyed the trip immensely... Our guide Collin was over the top "Awesome". He would have taken our entire group 24 hours per day if we asked. Absolutely incredible; can't say enough about his attentiveness and concern for the group at all times.
Our two tours with you have both been incredible because of the professionalism of the tour guides. You are very fortunate to have them on your team. Someone is doing a great job screening and hiring these incredibly talented people.
Thank you for a great vacation ... memories and new friends.Robert J. Laguna Woods, CA
We had a wonderful time on our first Gate 1 adventure. The hotels were well located in very nice neighborhoods close to interesting sights and places you would not want to miss. We loved our Tour Coordinator, Arjan, who really went out of his way to help if there was anything that we needed or wanted to do. He did a great job of sharing his home city of Amsterdam with us, explaining the history and the culture of the people and the architecture, etc. All the included meals were excellent. The hotel breakfasts were all you could want. They featured eggs and meats in addition to yogurt, sometimes fruits, along with the usual European fare of wonderful rolls, croissants, wonderful coffee, tea, and pretty much whatever you were looking for in cereals.
We like each of the hotel rooms we had, especially the Hyatt in Paris, which was 33 stories high and gave us a wonderful view of Paris including the Eiffel Tower which mesmerized us with its sparkling lights every half hour. It looked close enough to touch.
The Amsterdam Canal boat ride was fun and we loved walking around Brugge and hearing all about the Begginage community.The village was so peaceful and lovely. Even our bus driver was wonderful. His name was Franz and he spoke wonderful English with a bit of a Scottish accent although he was from Belgium. He was a really fun person, helping us to take photos and very interesting to talk to.
We appreciated the small tour group of only about 15 people. It made everything so much easier not to be waiting for a huge group. It meant we could travel quickly and get to know one another better. The group was nicely balanced with young and older people from all kinds of backgrounds….very enjoyable. We thought it was great value for the money we spent. I don't think we could have found such nice places to stay on our own.
My only disappointment was the plane ride which was very tight and not comfortable. It was a long ride and the food, which you had to BUY, was not very good and was fairly pricey for the poor selection offered. I had flown Icelandic Airline many years ago the first time I traveled to Europe, and it was so different and nicer then. So I was expecting a much better experience. However, the important thing is that it was a safe flight and the staff was pleasant and professional.
Now that I have tried Gate 1, I will definitely book a longer trip with them next time, since I feel sure that they will take good care of us and offer a high quality of tour guides and staffing and great itineraries also. Thanks for all your help in booking the trip from Boston. That made the flight less arduous and shorter.Roberta M. Boston, MA
The trip was awesome. Our tour guide Aryan was the best. We met some really nice people and have already exchanged photos through email and we are keeping in touch with them . And I am happy to tell you that I just booked my 8th trip with Gate 1 to Greece on June 30. The 11day Athens, Mykonos and 4 day cruise . I am always pleased with how I am treated with Gate 1 and you always do your best to make sure I have a wonderful time. That is why I keep booking trips with you !!Arlene K. Tamarac, FL
