Just arrived back from a 10 Day Tour of India’s Golden Triangle. Gate 1 Travel took all the work out of negotiating this confusing country. Each location has been carefully selected for safety and pleasure. The bus was comfortable, air conditioned and filled with bottomless clean bottled water, a must in India! Clever seating arrangements were rotated daily. Poised, professional, and knowledgeable you should consider yourself fortunate if Mansi is your tour guide. A strong female in a male dominated culture/country, she made the entire trip enjoyable and interesting. She is gifted with total recall and a magical memory, pulling endless stats and facts during her breathless talks. She also discussed her personal life bringing us even closer to this different culture. Not sure how she remained so composed with a couple difficult travelers. However, she took care of everyone’s needs and stayed with us for the entire journey. For all this I thank you. Gate 1 Travel will now be my first choice when selecting tours for this world traveler.

Vinny, our tour manager was outstanding and went way and above his way to make sure all our needs were met for the entire group. The history of India was awesome and made it so interesting during our road trips that made driving to each city such a joy. I want to also thank the driver and assistant for getting us to each destination in a safe manner and always made sure we were able to stop and take the time for the group to get pictures of the best sites along the way.

It was the best trip I ever took, only the Patagonia trip was comparable! Bhutan is such a special place and I have only superlatives to say about it, the whole world should see it! Gate 1 did a great job with the itinerary, the pace, the hotels; very smart how the hikes were placed in the program and how we had the time to acclimatize; the tour directors, both Anup and Sangay were awesome (which I have to say, is always the case with Gate 1).

Seeing the Taj Mahal has been on my bucket list for years. My gate one tour manager Sandeep, made India come alive for me. He provided history of the area and many stories at each site we visited which made you feel more connected. He set the stage for our visit to the Taj Mahal with the moving story of its construction. Experiencing the Taj Mahal was magical and something I will never forget thanks to Sandeep. This trip was just a taste of India but made me want to see more of the country.

I really enjoyed this trip. It is the trip that has taken me the furthest out of my comfort zone and to the most exotic place I have been to date. I didn't know what to expect ... I loved the trip. The Indian people always returned my smile and they seemed happy. I enjoyed myself and came away with the impression of a beautiful country filled with history and natural beauty. I give a lot of the credit to our guide, Shalendra, for helping us on the tour understand the culture and way of life. This man was extremely knowledgeable about the places we visited. He came from the region we were visiting and his love for his province and people came through again and again. He also spoke with us on the tour about their way of living, politics and helped us understand that the western ideas are very different than the Indian perspective. I cannot say enough good things about Shalendra and give him full credit for making our trip so enjoyable. I feel I truly saw India with all its' flaws and beauty ... This trip really gave me a feel for the country without asking me to give up my western comforts. The hotels were spectacular, the itinerary kept us moving ... It really allowed me to see India in its natural state. I am thrilled with my trip... I cannot say enough good things about this trip. I will certainly travel with Gate 1 again, particularly to these exotic places as I always felt safe with our guide.

Simply wonderful. Nepal is bustling with activity, with smells, with life! Most enjoyable were the walkabouts through Bhaktapur, and Tharu village in Chitwan National Park which allowed us to chat with the locals and have a closeup look at the way they live. The dinner, home visits and the conversations about life in Nepal were priceless. Bhutan is more than amazing! It’s pristine environment and culturally rich history is fascinating. I loved the dress-up in traditional Bhutanese dres. The hike to Tiger’s Nest, is wonderfully rewarding ... At first sight, Tiger’s Nest was blanketed with clouds, but as the clouds lifted it was breathtaking and hastened our steps. Thanks to our guides Rajesh (Nepal), and Dawa (Bhutan) and our drivers who did a stellar job in ensuring everything went smoothly!

The trip was wonderful. Our two tour managers put their hearts in it and made our trip a life time experience ....The tour guide in Nepal was very thoughtful to prepare the masks for us when walking through the dusty city ...

I have traveled on small group tours quite often, but this surpassed all expectations. Our guide in India was outstanding and the group I traveled with have all said they would travel again with her. I will certainly be booking through Gate 1 again.

Our trip to India was fantastic ! I'm more than happy with Gate1 and with your organized trips. India is our 3rd trip with Gate1 and I don't have one single thing to complained ... I personally would not be able to organize my own time better. Gate1 vision of traveling and seeing world is fantastic for people who likes to travel . Your tour guides makes trips really enjoyable and memorable . We arrived back to Canada and India was way more then just amazing trip.

Our trip to India was incredible! Our tour guide, Jimmy, was attentive, helpful, personable, reliable, and approachable. His assistant and bus driver were also very helpful throughout the trip. I didn't know much about India and booked the trip because my friends found a great package. I was a little nervous since the culture is very different; however, all my doubts were gone once we arrived and met the Gate 1 team and our group. Everything exceeded my expectations and I wish we had more time in India. I will most likely book anther trip with Gate 1 in the future. Thanks again for an unforgettable trip.

Highlights of my trip were Seema the guide, she was excellent. The bus was comfortable and the hotels (most of them were 5 star in my book. Plenty of opportunities for meals and all travelers were well taken care of. BUT the best of all was all the wonderful sites, history, culture, religions and philosophies. It was an education bar none. I definitely got my monies worth and more.

Our trip was everything we hoped for and more! Our tour guide Seema Singh was delightful and very organized. She was extremely knowledgeable about history and current events. She kept us on schedule and added other things such as an Indian wedding, which was delightful! She also gave great suggestions for things to do on our free time. I would suggest everyone sign up for the optional tours as they were all an added bonus to the trip. The motor coach in India was so nice, as was the driver and assistance. The food was so good, only too much of it! I loved trying all the new items...As for the hotels The Trident chain was so nice! We felt very cared for by the staff and the beauty and cleanliness of the hotels were so welcome after our long days. Our guide in Nepal Sanjay Nepal was great also. He has a great sense of humor, knowledge of his country and was flexible in his schedule which we had to be to see Mt Everest...We have traveled with Gate 1 before and will do so again. I tell everyone "Call Gate 1!"

The trip was amazing! What a wonderful and unique experience. We were awash in an explosion of cultural sights, sounds, emotions, and immersions...What made the trip especially memorable was all the people to people interaction. From riding on a rickshaw through the streets of Delhi, to visiting a local village in Nepal, to having dinner with a Tibetan refugee family, to interacting with children at a local school in Chitawan. That's what's so great about discovery tours: small groups and lots of interaction with people!

We had a wonderful trip to Sri Lanka, everything went smoothly. Stayed in superb hotels, food was really good, and really appreciated the food and beverage package. Nipuna the tour manager along with Ravi the bus driver were first class. Would like to have stayed in Nuwara Eilya an extra day. Gate 1 Travel is the best.....our second trip with you and hopefully not the last.

Really enjoyed my 13 day India tour...Everything exceeded my expectations- hotels and coach transport were top notch and the historic buildings around the Golden Triangle and in Mumbai were wonderful. But the highlight for me (even slightly better than the Taj Mahal) was seeing a tiger up close in Ranthambore. I'm very impressed with Gate 1 tours and am considering another holiday with them.

Our trip was a great success. Our guide Jay was very good, very passionate and knowledgeable about the subjects and good fun too. The hotels were all good and I enjoyed the restaurants we were taken to...I greatly enjoyed seeing the traditional dancers, seeing how bronzes are made, the silk weavers and much more...I would certainly not hesitate to travel with Gate 1 again.

Thoroughly enjoyed my trip to India. Have nothing but praise for Gate 1 travel from my first communication with you here in Sydney and for all who made my travels enjoyable. The organisation was exceptional with no worries for me. My tour leader, Sony Singh, was very impressive, efficient, and approachable. Another Gate1 trip should be on the horizon.

We had a wonderful time. I did a lot of research before we left on the historical aspects of the areas in India and Nepal which we were going to visit. And as always, it was more beautiful in person. Our guide Kapil was just the right blend for our group. Knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. Keeping a group that large happy, interested, and moving in the right direction must be a challenge. And he did it with seemingly no effort.

My trip was fantastic!. The tour director in India did and exceptional job. I learned a lot from her not only about the history the culture at the religion of India but also know developments in the country. She did an excellent job of managing the entire tour and made it a very memorable experience. Her knowledge was incredibly impressive. Anil The tour director in Nepal Did an outstanding job. Incredibly knowledgeable and exceeded any expectations I had. I had such a great time that when I return home I started to look at other Gate 1 tours.
