My trip was fantastic!. The tour director in India did and exceptional job.

The India vacation was excellent. My wife and I had a wonderful time and it was all due to the professionalism of the tour guide Seerdar and his staff. He was very knowledgeable, looks out for the safety of his group. It was amazing how the driver could maneuver his large bus through those narrow streets. Thank you and your team for making our vacation worthwhile. Kudos to Gate1!!!!

It is the most wonderful trip we had. Our guide jairaj is the best. The itinerary is very good. What a surprise to find south India so interesting. The resort hotels were awesome. My friends all ask why south India? What is there to see? Now after all our photos and stories, they are lining up to come and experience. I would be interested in other parts of India is it is proven as good.

Awesome. My trip was awesome. And it was a spiritual journey. India is the most fascinating country on Earth. For the first time in my life I was not ready to go home. This was my third visit to India with Gate1 and I am already thinking about a fourth. Our guide, Sridar was amazing. His patience and diplomacy with our group is worthy of a raise! I can't thank you enough for the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful adventure.

Our trip to India and Nepal met every expectation. I appreciated the diversity of experiences and the range of backgrounds and experiences of our fellow-travelers. The pace was just right...Our tour guide, Viney, was sensitive to the group's needs and provided the logistical and interpretive support we needed. Toward the end of the trip we fit in more cultural exposures with a bit less attention to temples and monuments, which was most welcome. This was our fifth trip with Gate 1 and I suspect it won't be our last.

Thank you so much for providing us with the most exceptional India tour, and Tour guide in "Bhanu Mishra". My family had reservations about me travelling alone to India however I felt totally safe & well looked after in the Tour Manager / Guide's capable hands. It was my first "Gate1 Tour" & the itinerary was very well planned out, however the service, primarily because of Bhanu was a standout! Bhanu's care & attention to detail on the "Gate1 Classic India Tour" was extraordinary! His knowledgeable explanations, spiritual insights, stories, analogies & jokes I shall remember with great fondness ......( The whole 29 tour group was in raptures at his professionalism, calmness, & intelligent explanations to any question we asked of him) a true Gate1 treasure!

India was everything we hoped and more. The culture, the energy, the chaos, the beautiful people, the architecture of the ancient sites, the TRAFFIC, and the itinerary were incredible. We loved it!! Gate 1 does a great job with choosing hotels that exceeded our expectations. We also loved Nepal and the differences between the two countries was noticeable. Nepal had a peacefulness that we really enjoyed especially after ending our trip of India in Varanasi. Great trip!!

Karen and I had the most marvellous time in India. The way the tour was organised was faultless. The hotels were fabulous especially the Jaypee Palace in Agra and the Eros Hotel in New Delhi. Food was wonderful too. And then there was our tour guide Seema. If we could give her 12 out of 10 we would. She was an absolute delight, so well informed and helpful. We learned so much of India’s history and political make up from her. What a treasure, Gate 1 should be very proud to have her. This was our first guided tour but I’m sure you will be seeing us again.

Fantastic. Gate 1 - staff, accommodations , value, local tours and experiences offered exceeded my expectations. Our guide, Vir was outstanding. Because of the reputation of your company, I will even give you credit for the wonderful people that were in the group. There wasn't one person that didn't enrich the travel experience. It was a positive experience for not only our group, but for the nationals whose path we crossed along the way. There was such a respectful tone of appreciation toward the country and her people that we were able to reflect it each time we left the bus. Good people insure good outcomes. From the booking staff to the drivers, it was a delight. This was my first Gate 1 experience and I will start saving for the next. I can't think of anything that could have been done to make this better. Well done.

This was our first Gate 1 holiday so we were somewhat unsure how it would go having had good and bad travel experiences with other organised tours. However our local guide Bhanu was fantastic and we covered a lot of things in the seven days we had in India. The holiday was good value and the hotel accommodation, bus, and tourist sights were just right. All of the travel group got along well. It was also nice to have a nonstop flight both ways. We are looking forward to our upcoming Gate 1 Vietnam holiday and are confident that it will achieve the same high standards.

I had an exciting time!. Phasant did a superb job of not only making the trip fun but also educating us. I learned a lot about the culture and the history of the Indian people. The hotels were nice and clean, the food was good and the staff was courteous and friendly. Phasant, the driver and the other guy deserve tons of credit. They did a wonderful job. I enjoyed every minute of it. Gate 1, you did it again!

I had the most excellent trip. It was an eye-opening experience into a vast unknown world which India represented to me. I must say that Rachna - my tour manager, was amazing in her knowledge and experiences as well as her passion about her culture. There was not a thing I would change - from the flights, to the hotels and amenities, the tour sites visited and the bus and drivers. I cannot wait to plan my next trip there as this is just the tip of the iceberg in a country as vast as India. Thank you Gate 1 for another amazing experience.

Our trip to India was our fourth trip with Gate 1. Like our other trips, Gate 1 put together a wonderful itinerary. The hotels were great and the Indian food delicious. The Taj Mahal in Agra was exquisite, the Amber Fort in Jaipur was spectacular as well as the temples in Khajuraho. To witness the cremation ceremonies in Varanasi was simply out of this world ! What a trip! Last but not least I would like to add that our tour guide Vinni was knowledgeable about his country, and took care of everything so that we didn't have to worry about a single thing. Well done Gate 1.

The guide, Vineet, was so informative, well-organized and flexible, had a great sense of humor and many anecdotes to fill in our understanding of the culture and society. All the accommodations and transportation were superb. We couldn't have asked for anything more. This was our second Gate 1 trip and were not disappointed.
