11 Day Russian River Cruise - St. Petersburg to Moscow, July 2010

We had a wonderful time! The ship was comfortable, the crew very professional, the tours and the stops on the cruise were so interesting and unusual, and St. Petersburg and Moscow--amazing!

Your help was important to making this a great experience, Cheryl--thanks again! I'm going to stick with Gate 1 whenever I find a trip you have that matches the destination I want, so we may be in touch again in the future.

14 Day Danube River Cruise with Prague & Budapest, July 2010

My husband and I just arrived back from the trip of a lifetime. Gate 1 Travel was not only a great bargain but was beyond expectations. The guides were experts and friendly, as were the entire crew. Our destinations were unbelievably beautiful, the food delectable and the hotels well located and plush. We took several excursions. They were inexpensive, informative, not at all like the many, many excursions that I have participated in on large cruise lines. After cruising "down the river" I don't know that I will ever take another ocean cruise vacation again!!!

11 Day Music Cruise on the Danube with Prague & Budapest, July 2010

From the subways and concert in Prague, to Passau and the BEAUTIFUL Danube River, this trip was truly musically enchanting and architecturally a DREAM.

The Amadeus Symphony enlightened our taste buds daily bringing joy to every meal. Our wine glasses were never "half full" and the staff were extremely polite and attentive. The musicians and dancers exceeded our expectations and Fraulein Maria was on board in Austria! All of our guides were extremely knowledgeable and well versed in history.

The grand finale was our hotel in Budapest, rich in history and grand in elegance! The Spa was something we dream about in the states! Way to go Gate 1! We did Vietnam last year and are already planning to cruise the Nile next year.

11 Day Music Cruise on the Danube with Prague & Budapest, July 2010

I returned home very tired from all of the activity. The trip was wonderful, the itinerary was great, the cruise was more than I expected. We met some wonderful people from all over the U.S. The only compliant would be the "airport experience" of which you have no control. It is getting harder and harder to deal with all the hoops we have to jump through to get on a plane but I guess it has to be for our protection?

As soon as I get rested, we'll think again about traveling. Thanks for all your help.

11 Day Music Cruise on the Danube with Prague & Budapest, July 2010

We had a great time on our trip. We were really surprised by Budapest in a very good way. Our hotel was luxuriously beautiful, and so very well located! We liked that the sights in Budapest were all centrally located except for the castle. We could walk to the museums, the cathedral, the opera, and so many restaurants and theatres. We felt like we were in the New York theatre district. We would like to go back during "high season". Although we went to 2 concerts, we would like to attend the opera and the symphony, which are closed in July and August. Susanna, our tour guide, and Tatiana, our ship concierge, were both very efficient and helpful.

Thanks for your help with our trip. We appreciate your efforts.

9 Day Danube River Cruise - Nuremberg to Budapest, July 2010

The trip was absolutely fabulous, probably the best vacation I have ever had! I will definitely take another river cruise, if I can just decide on a river--there are so many wonderful choices!

9 Day Music Cruise on the Danube with Prague, June 2010

We would recommend Gate 1 tours to anyone interested. We had a great guide, Casper, in Prague and on the bus to Passau. His knowledge was extensive and we much appreciated the information. Our tour guide, Susanna, was equally wonderful. We also enjoyed the cruising part of the tour. The experiences on the ship were wonderful. We enjoyed the excellent food, especially since a regional specialty was served each night. The ship's staff were pleasant and helpful. We have already booked a Gate 1 tour to Egypt next March, can't wait!

9 Day Music Cruise on the Danube with Prague, June 2010

I had a 100% positive experience thanks to Gate 1 and all that it offered. I was convinced that this would be a good trip, but I had no idea that it would be so stunning and so much fun! Thanks also to Gate l for permitting me to go as a single at an affordable rate. Susannah was an excellent source of positive information and feedback for us. Thank you for this excellent experience which was my first cruise. I am already anticipating another such trip hopefully around Christmas time.

9 Day Music Cruise on the Danube with Prague - Passau to Budapest, June 2010

The trip was wonderful! Our Gate1 representative, Monika, was very helpful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and it was great that she stayed with us throughout the whole trip.

The Amadeus Mozart cruise ship was so clean and roomy, and the staff was incredible! The food and service was to die for! On board, my only complaint was that I was expecting a trio or quartet to play Mozart and Strauss, and all there was were four fairly talented operetta singers accompanied by a piano player and ten minutes of violin playing plus a few dances on the night when we were in Budapest. I thought there would be more varied music.

The tours and tour guide in Budapest was also excellent. We were extremely lucky that the rains and consequent flooding of the Danube stopped just a few days before our cruise. It was a most enjoyable trip.

8 Day Danube River Cruise - Budapest to Passau, May 2010

Our plane to Frankfurt had a medical emergency and had to divert to Duluth, Minnesota and then to Chicago. It took 2 1/2 days to get to Budapest!. As a result we did not see Budapest, but the rest of the trip, including the river cruise was great!! Thanks for your help in rescheduling the transfer in Budapest a day later than planned. Prague was wonderful.
