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.

12 Day Enchanting Italy with Amalfi, May 2022
Dummy Image

Our first tour with Gate 1 was amazing! The trip was well planned. It started out with a slow pace, increased as the days went on and ended in a relaxing setting on the Amalfi coast. Our tour coordinator/guide, Susanna, was the best! Her organization skills, personable nature and sense of humor made her a joy to be with. Ask anything and Susanna would make it happen. The timing of tours, dinners, free time and travel time were well planned out. The group of 23 was a good size to get acquainted with everyone. The city tours had knowledgeable guides as well. We especially enjoyed Nina in Rome and the young man who did the tour in Florence. The wine dinners, and actually all the dinners were delicious! Susanna also suggested places to dine if we were on our own. We will definitely book with Gate 1 again. Thank you for all the detailed, organized coordinating that made our trip so enjoyable in Italy.

I would like to thank Francesca, our tour manager for a recent trip to Italy and praise her for a job well done. Due to covid, my husband and I waited two years from our initial booking for our trip to Italy. Every aspect of the trip was fabulous, the trip could not have been better. We experienced so much of Italy, learned volumes and ate like kings. We did not have a worry or concern about anything regarding schedules and timing, everything was organized and handled like clockwork. Even the covid test to return to the USA was completed right in the hotel. Thanks Francesca for a job well done!!

I traveled on the Enchanting Italy with Amalfi tour. Our tour manager, Gabriela, was outstanding - informative, efficient and fun. She arranged great lunch and dinner spots for us: lunch, wine tasting and tour at a winery; dinner at a terrific restaurant overlooking Florence. I chose this tour because it was a "smattering" of everything I wanted to see in Italy: Venice canals, Vatican and Colosseum in Rome, and beautiful Capri with a boat ride through the grottos. along with many other cities and sites. We also had free time to explore on our own. This was my first tour with Gate 1 and I highly recommend. Can't wait to tour the Lake region on my next tour.

We had a fantastic time and I have to say our guide Remo is who made the trip exceptional. I hope you are taking really good care of him because he is an absolute gem!!! We had such a mix of people and needs and Remo always kept his cool and received us with unconditional hospitality! His knowledge and obvious love for Italy was evident throughout our trip. Truthfully, Remo is one of the most patient persons I have EVER met and wow, did he have so many moving parts with our bunch. The itinerary was terrific! I still can't believe we saw everything we saw, learned so much, had crazy fun and came home exhausted with a head full of beautiful memories. Thank you for all you did to take care of the details so we could just play like kids!

Our trip was fantastic. We covered a lot of the country in 14 days. We especially loved Cinque Terra, Lucca, Capri and the Amalfi coast. The tours were interesting and the accommodations excellent. The very best part was Lorena our tour manager. She does her job extremely well. She is always happy and is extremely knowledgeable and proud of her country. She handled the unexpected issues that arose with calm and patience. It's evident she loves what she does and we loved her. Gate1 is definitely the no worry way to travel.

I would like to expound on my experience with Carolyn. Since this is my first experience with Gate 1, I was thinking that all your managers were as good as her. But hearing from other seasoned travelers of Gate 1, they have she is the best they ever had. I totally agree she was wonderful, took care of us giving us little memorable gifts from places we tour, little Pinocchio to delicious focaccia to a beautiful calendar. I can still hear her counting us from English to Italian making sure nobody was left behind. But I Will remember most are the injected funny and warm family anecdotes she tells us on our tour while she talks in the bus or in our "whispers" Arriverderci Carolyn, you made my experience with. Gate 1 memorable and want more.

If there were a category beyond Excellent that would be your tour manager, Mercedes, for our recently completed 14 day tour of Italy. What a truly wonderful, knowledgeable, personable guide you have in her. She was so very organized and approachable and her love of her country and her eagerness to share this love with us was apparent every moment of this trip. She also had a way of bringing our group together as a "family" for the 14 days of our tour. The Tour Managers really make your tours memorable. This was our 4th Gate 1 trip and each tour manager has been beyond excellent. I always think the previous tour manager could never be topped -- but then I meet the next one....

Our trip to Tuscany was incredible. Flying with Emirates was incomparable for service and amenities. Staying at the Hotel Grand Plaza in Montecatini allowed us to experience Tuscany at our own pace. Riccardo and Mariano were amazing and we looked forward to our meals there. Everyone should take the funicular trip up to Montecatini Also as the views were fabulous and the history of the town is fantastic.

Our guide Mercedes was fabulous. Her knowledge of the regions we visited or drove by was excellent. Every question or recommendation I asked was answered with expertise. She was so friendly with everyone on the tour. I wish I could have her on every tour I do with Gate 1. This was the best tour I have been on with Gate 1.

Although on the post trip survey I rated our tour manager, Ana, excellent in all categories I am compelled to provide additional comments. I have traveled with 3 other tour companies and comparatively, Ana went above & beyond what I have experienced in the past. Her assistance with our groups check in at Palermo airport (something that was technically after the tour ended) made the process go much more smoothly. I believe some of us may have missed our flight if not for her. I could go on but suffice it to say that Ana is quite an asset to Gate1 and made our first trip with your company memorable. I do hope that this email is forwarded to the powers that be.

Hello. I just want to add to the survey about our trip to Italy. Our tour manager Mercedes was absolutely wonderful! She truly wanted everyone to enjoy Italy. In Florence, my daughter mentioned how uncomfortable the pillows were in the hotel room. When we returned that evening, a nicer pillow was brought to our room - all arranged by Mercedes. It was an appreciated gesture and showed how much she listens and cares. Mercedes is truly wonderful in her role and made our trip even more enjoyable. All the tour guides were so knowledgeable and answered any questions. We enjoyed the history they all shared, including funny anecdotes. After visiting Pisa, lunch being served at the wine tasting was a nice surprise and delicious! The additional dinner in Tuscany (Machiavelli villa) was absolutely amazing! The food was the best; the wine was delicious (we ordered some for home!), and the entertainment was fun and engaging. It was an enjoyable night - one we will not forget. We booked our Italy trip on the recommendation of my brother and his girlfriend who travel yearly with Gate1. I have shared our experience with friends and coworkers telling them how easy it was to travel with Gate 1. We just had to show up and enjoy - the planning and logistics were handled. We look forward to booking our next trip - hopefully sometime soon!

I just had to leave a note with some feedback on the amazing Francesca. She truly embodies the Gate1 promise and was an exceptional tour manager. She made sure to greet us when we arrived at the hotel and ensured there were porters to take care of our luggage when we arrived in Italy and departed Italy. She had what she called "hospitality hour" every evening to answer any questions or give suggestions for our time at leisure. She also provided us with city maps in every city we visited where she would highlight our hotel as well as the best way to get back to the hotel from our last location on the guided tour. This was one of my favorite "above and beyond" steps that she took because there was no stress about how to return to our hotel if we wanted to hangout longer in the city. She kept bus conversation relevant and interesting but also let us take time to nap on the way to the next location. Something that shouldn't need comment but after our last Gate1 trip I feel it's important to mention; Francesca stayed true to the itinerary and didn't move things around to make it more convenient for herself. This was extremely appreciated! Some feedback on the tour itself: this was a perfectly balanced trip with guided tours, optional tours and time at leisure. The two additional optional tours we got to add on once we arrived in Italy were also fantastic! We LOVED having a local guide for each and every city we visited versus the orientation tours we received through much of our time through Germany, Switzerland and Austria. This trip brought back my faith in Gate1 tours and has me so excited for our next trip in September!

The 10 Day affordable italy with Pompeii tour was the most wonderful dream vacation. The tour/trip exceeded all my hopes and expectations. There was absolutely nothing changed or wished different. Our tour guides were all knowledgeable and adding fun facts and details to everything we saw. the main guide, Michela was outstanding. I believe she went above and beyond taking care of our group, making sure we were all happy and safe, getting us where we needed to be while having a great time. I would recommend Michela to everyone I know and hopefully be on one of her tours again in the future. thank you for such a perfect trip!

Just wanted to let you know that our Tour Manager, Ana, is outstanding. We were a party of three traveling together and we all felt like she was very knowledgeable, personable and just a great person. She encouraged unity, yet independence. She made sure everyone was comfortable and got to know everyone on the tour. This was our first travel with Gate 1. Based on this tour led by Ana, we would definitely do another tour with Gate 1. We were very satisfied. Thank you.

We really enjoyed Vanni as a guide. He was very protective of us all and more than willing to share his information on local restaurants and other locations to visit. He does a great job. He's extremely knowledgeable about Italian culture and history. We have made 4 trips to Italy in the last 40+ years and even with that experience under our belts, we still learned a lot from Vanni. I wanted to especially write about our driver Luigi. What a lovely man and an excellent driver. The traffic was often extremely congested and he navigated through with no problems. We always felt entirely safe being in his bus. I would not want to deal with Italian traffic on a daily basis. On the way home from Pompeii, there was horrendous traffic. If not for his knowledge of Rome and its environs, we would have been stuck in traffic for more than an hour. There was a massive tangle of traffic. Luigi knew the city so well, he was able to leave the highway early and wend his way through a number of small streets managing that huge bus as if it were a small car, and got us to our hotel without any major delays. Luigi is a Keeper!

My brother and I like to take brothers trips from time to time. We have used Gate1 several times, and booked a trip to Vietnam for April 2020. As the world closed down, our trip was cancelled. After waiting a couple of years, we decided to change our plans and travel to Italy instead. Gate 1 was very accommodating and helped us with this change. As always, communications were clear and helpful. This was the first time we've taken an independent tour, but everything was perfect. The hotels were clean and located in great spots (especially in Florence and Venice). So what's it like to travel to a foreign country at the tail end of a pandemic? In one word: heavenly! Low crowds, almost no long lines, and very appreciative shop owners and tour operators. I know it won't last forever, but while it does, book your trip! Can't wait to book another one!!!

Is an Independent Vacation from Gate 1 right for you? It was the perfect choice for my daughter and me for our recent trip to Italy. The option was an ideal blend of booking an escorted tour while allowing us time to explore on our own. * We had the security of Gate 1 behind us when flights and hotels were changed - we didn't have to worry about rescheduling. * We had the opportunity to join Gate 1 (and other) tours in each city we visited - the excursion to Pompeii was our favorite. * We had the freedom to explore each city on our own - we especially loved taking the "boat-bus" in Venice and riding the Metro subway in Rome. So if you're feeling just a bit adventurous and want to "cut the apron strings," an Independent Gate 1 Vacation may be the perfect option for you too!

I wanted to reach out to share thoughts on Nicole that my wife and I both felt she did a fabulous job during our trip. She was very knowledgeable and shared much information about each area we visited. We look forward to learning about the history and cultures of areas during our travels and she provided expert information on both. She came across as warm caring and knowledgeable. You are fortunate to call her a Gate 1 representative. Please express our regards and thanks to her.

Our trip to Italy in October 2021 was just what we needed to break out of the COVID doldrums. We were somewhat hesitant to travel and waited until the last week before departure before we made our final decision. GATE1 did everything right in providing safe travel and even made arrangements for our COVID testing (before returning home) to be done at our last hotel. Our tour guide, Fortuna, made our trip so very enjoyable. She seemed as happy as the rest of our small group (there were nine of us) to be traveling again. Fortuna was especially adept at knowing how to pack in the most fun and arranged an awesome variety of experiences each day. We've traveled many times on guided tours but Fortuna was by far our favorite guide. She was skilled at keeping everyone happy and meeting our individual requests. Although we should have guessed there would be wonderful food on this trip, we were overjoyed with the multi-course meals we were treated to at each vineyard. And we sure learned a lot about grapes and wine! Who knew? Balsamic vinegar, rice wine and beer, grappa and awesome vineyards - all such a treat. We are so very glad that we went on this fabulous trip!

My wife and I got back a week ago from spending our Honeymoon on the '14 Day Romantic Italy with Amalfi', and I just wanted to reach out and say how incredible it was. Traveling during COVID with the restrictions changing month-to-month is inherently stressful, but Gate1 did a wonderful job before, during, and after the trip of making sure we knew exactly what was required, and even facilitating the tests while we were in Italy so we could return to the U.S. as stress-free as possible. Everything about Italy, the accommodations, the guides, etc. were perfect, but I absolutely have to give special thanks and credit to our tour manager Lorena. She was so passionate and joyful, and her positive energy helped make the trip so special. At every opportunity she went out of our way to make our Honeymoon better than we ever thought it could be. We absolutely love Gate1. This was our second trip, and we have two more booked for next year. We tell all of our friends that Gate1 is the way to go. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything you do to make these wonderful trips.

My 2 boys and I just returned from a 2 week vacation in Italy (14 Day Romantic). First I want to say that traveling with Gate 1 was a wonderful & pleasurable experience and of course Italy was absolutely Bellissimo. What made the experience over the top was our tour manager, the lovely Ms Larena. I never met anyone who enjoyed her job & people as much as she does. Not only was she a wealth of knowledge but her attention to detail & guidance was impressive which took some pressure of of us as to when do we met, what time and so on. She truly cared for all of us. You can also see how well loved she is by the local guides as well as the everyday citizens of Italy. She is full of love, life and has a heart of gold. When my kids and I departed from Naples she accompanied us to the airport and upon saying good-bye we both had happy tears in our eyes. I don't see her as a tour manager anymore but now she is my friend for life. Thank you Larena & Gate 1 for a memorable time.

I would like to be more specific in my praise for our tour manager, Dionisio, who accompanied us our tour of southern Italy from Bari to Naples. Dionisio was articulate, detailed and personable in his comments for all instructions, his detailed historical and cultural background along the way, and his responses to our questions. He went out of his way to provide extraordinary assistance, particularly to several members of our group who had trouble walking. His enthusiasm for the various places and foods was infectious, and we could not help but be intrigued by our travel experience. Despite the extra paper work that he was constantly required to fill out to satisfy the Covid response protocol in Italy, he was always available and willing to assist in each of our special requests. Finally, on our last day he got up at 4am to accompany a group of us to the Naples airport to make sure that our Covid test documents would be accepted at check in, easing our way for the flight home. In summary, Dionisio was an exceptional tour manager in all respects, and a remarkable representative of Gate 1 Travel!

The trip was phenomenal, amazing! Felt very safe about Covid protocols 24 of us were on the trip 24 received negative Covid test before we left to come home. Wearing a mask inside was the only inconvenience for the trip. There were no incidents we only had to show our US government vaccine card when entering museums and if we ate inside. However we almost never ate inside, because we were in Italy. Our guide was the typical amazing Gate One tour guide. The day guides were also really great. Though I have been a bit unhappy with some of the planning of this trip, sticking with Gate One was the right thing to do. I will continue to tell everyone about how great Gate One does! I will also be booking some more trips.

I want you to know what a great trip we had, on our 9 day Classic Sicily. But it was made even better because of our Tour Manager, Antonella. She was wonderful. We have had good tour managers, with Gate 1, but she was the absolute best. We felt she went above and beyond. She would present our group with little gifts of pastries, from bakeries she had recommended, rock salt from the salt fields at Marsala, even little Sicilian flags and tea towels with a map of Sicily on it. She was extremely knowledgeable & very funny. She told my partner and I about a great restaurant in Taoromina, and how to get there by taxi and cable car. Even the amount of cab fare and the cost of the cable car up to Taoromina. She became a friend to everyone on our tour. And I know everyone in our tour group feels the same way about Antonella!!! I hope we have a chance to have her as our tour manager on future Gate 1 tours.

Punctual, at ease with every tour member, they effortlessly led us through the crowds, offering interesting discourse and highlighting special areas of interest.

As this was our fourteenth trip with Gate 1, we have come to expect nothing less than an excellently planned package and we were not disappointed! From the well appointed and conveniently located hotels, the many wonderful culinary experiences we enjoyed to the unique sights and vistas along the way, nothing was lacking.

OMG, our trip was amazing. The best trip I’ve ever been on. Every detail was perfect. Everything that Gate 1 promised was delivered beyond our expectations. AND, our tour guide Johnny was the best I’ve ever had. I can’t say enough about him. He provided us with so much relevant information every step of the way, and he was extremely likable and witty and loads of fun. He definitely went above and beyond what I would expect of a tour guide. In fact, I would purchase another trip based solely on the fact that he would be my tour guide. Our entire group loved him. He made our vacation perfect, and we also had an exceptionally nice group of people on our tour. Everyone was friendly and got along, and no one was ever late or difficult. As you probably know, in every group there is usually that one person who complains about everything, but, we did not have anyone that was negative in any way. I formed some friendships that I will continue to pursue. The only bad thing is that I will truly miss the wonderful people in our tour group (40 people), but most of all Johnny our tour guide. To sum it up, Gate 1 was like a well-oiled machine. Everything worked perfectly, and you get everything that is advertised. No surprises or hidden costs. You get a high quality tour for a reasonable price. I would recommend Gate 1 to everyone.

Wow! Truly one of the best vacations we have ever had. Dani (tour guide) was fantastic - took special care of my 6'7" husband with seating on the bus and even put together a large table for our family and two other families since our children became fast friends, the driver Luigi lulled everyone to sleep with his excellent driving, all the guides were knowledgeable and the Gate 1 employee that met us at the airport in Naples at 4:00 a.m. was a godsend. We got to know just about everyone (40) personally on the tour and made many new friends. Extremely pleased that there were young people on the trip - my daughter (18 years) really had a great time ... In fact, one of the girls she met is going to Boston University and will be living on the same street as my daughter who will be attending Berklee College of Music and they are just 15 minutes from one another.

Not only did I make some new friends on the tour, but I also wanted to congratulate ViVi our guide tour for an exceptional job. We had a lot of surprises along the way, such as eating lunch at the Vatican city, tasting local espresso in Naples and all of the local recommendations which were made by her. As usual, we all wanted more time in certain areas but knew we were on a time schedule. Definitely will come back to Italy to explore!!! Our driver was exceptional and ensuring we had a good time on the bus during all of our local stops and long drive along the Amalfi Coast. I did a lot of shopping and was very pleasantly greeted by Marianna at the airport who ensured all of my pieces of luggage were taken care of safely and sound, until my arrival back home to the US!! She was amazing!!! I would take this trip a thousand times over, but with Vivi!!! What a phenomenal woman!!! Can not wait for my next trip next year celebrating my 60 bday!!!
