Watch The Gate 1 Experience
Thursday, November 21, 2013
See for yourself what More of the World for Less is all about. Our detailed videos illustrate destinations and introduce you to the benefits of escorted tours. Meet the Tour Managers and guides, learn about the program, and sample a country - all within four to 12 minutes.
This time last year our video library consisted of only Turkey, Italy, Greece, China, Peru, Ecuador, European River Cruising and the Galapagos Islands. Now, we can excitedly say that we've added over a half dozen more videos including Cambodia, Central Europe, Croatia & Slovenia, Israel, Morocco, Thailand and South Africa. We are committed to growing our video library over the next several years, and have plans to add Costa Rica, India, Spain and Ireland by mid 2014.
Videos also touch on key sites visited, accommodations, scenery, interaction with locals, and much more. Of particular interest are client testimonials, allowing viewers to hear from real Gate 1 clients on real Gate 1 tours. As you watch, the beauty and culture of illustrious lands combined with our client's smiles, laughter and heartfelt words will inspire you.
Vietnam: Where History Meets Humanity and Harmony
Thursday, November 21, 2013
From the moment you arrive in Vietnam, you feel it--a profound sense of humanity and harmony. Locals call it nhân nghia and hòa and they embrace it fully. Perhaps it's the calming effect of the sea and the 2,140 miles of coastline that have always soothed the soul of the Vietnamese people. Or the astonishing beauty of its lush countryside and mystical magnificence of the towering limestone islands of Halong Bay. Indeed, Vietnam's soulful relationship to the sea runs deep. How can that not translate soul to soul, person to person?
Gate 1 travelers can tell you that it does. From cosmopolitan, French-flavored cities to breathtaking bays set against mountainous backdrops to charming rural villages, the Vietnamese welcome travelers with open arms and open hearts.
Discover The Pearl of the Orient, with a French Twist
Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon, is an intoxicating mix of French colonialism and traditional Vietnam. The city's French accent is especially pronounced at the double-spired neo-Romanesque Notre Dame Basilica, the grand City Hall, the Post Office, and the Opera House. Dong Khoi Street, the main shopping thoroughfare, captures the pulse of the city. And at bustling and intoxicating Ben Thanh Market, an indoor emporium and architectural beauty in its own right, all things Vietnamese can be found, from handicrafts to ao dai, the traditional silk tunic worn by women.
And just outside the city, a wartime relic reminds us of the hard road that was ahead for Ho Chi Minh and his people: The Cu Chi Tunnels, an underground network of manmade passageways used for covert operations, are a sobering reminder of a painful period in our countries' histories.

16 Day Bangkok, Cambodia & Vietnam
It was just great! We saw so much that we could never have seen/done without a guide. Elephant riding, oxcart riding, river boat rides, junk rides, plane rides, bus rides, tuk-tuk rides, sight-seeing, shopping, eating Asian food - all fabulous. Angor Wat, Angor Thom, Hoi An, An Long Bay, among others were the highlights.
