Gate 1 Unveils Discovery Tours - Small Groups for Less!
Thursday, July 19, 2012
Gate 1 Travel is responding to the high demand for small-group tours with its introduction of Discovery Tours by Gate 1. The new company will limit its group sizes to 18 maximum, giving it an edge in a travel market that typically caps group sizes at 24.
Discovery Tours is premiering its small group line with nine itineraries for 2013 - to China, Southeast Asia, Nepal, southern Africa, Morocco, Turkey, Italy, Peru, and Ireland. Each trip features unique cultural offerings and active outdoor experiences and visits locales far from the typical tourist circuit. They also give travelers intimate access to day-to-day life, featuring meals in the homes of locals, visits to schools, stops at artisans' shops, and other up-close cultural encounters.
Best of all, the prices of Discovery Tours are friendly to travel budgets, upholding Gate 1's commitment to quality and value. Prices come in below the average small group tour, even though itineraries include full days of touring, cultural activities, the majority of meals, and accommodations that impart cultural character.

5 Day Highlights of Colombia
Our trip to Colombia was wonderful! We enjoyed it very much. Our tour guide was one of the best guides we have had. He was very friendly, personable and knowledgeable. The accommodations were excellent in Bogota and in Cartegena. We were impressed with the airline, LAN, as it reminded us of the way American airline companies used to treat their passengers!
I participated in the optional excursion to Monserrate in Bogota. This was a very enjoyable experience and well worth the money. In Cartegena we went on optional the La Boquilla Mangrove excursion. This was a favorite part of our trip. The canoe ride thru the wetlands was wonderful as I enjoy bird watching. Seeing the fishing village and especially visiting the school were extremely worthwhile. After touring the school, three of the children entertained us with folk dancing. It was a very nice way to have a more personal experience in a foreign country.
We also appreciated the thoughtfulness of our tour guide in passing out bottled water frequently. We have traveled several times with Gate 1 and have found each trip delightful. We look forward to our next vacation!
