The trip to China was excellent and enjoyable. The hotels in Beijing and Shanghai were in good locations and have provided good services. We were totally satisfied with your Gate 1 services. We will recommend to our friends and relatives for their vacations to use Gate 1 travel.Ali F. New Castle, DE
It was amazing! A great group leader and incredible excursions! I would do it again in a heart beat!Ruby C. Beaumont, CA
We had a great trip. Everything went smooth and we enjoyed every minute of Japan. We would use Gate 1 again for our next long trip.Mark M. Millani, HI
It was absolutely amazing!!! The entire vacation package process was so smooth, there were absolutely no issues that we ran into. We will be using Gate 1 for every annual trip that we take from now on. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience. It was simply wonderful!Buddi B. Titusville, FL
The trip to Japan was short but enjoyable. Didn't speak Japanese but was able to understand their English. Gardens and temples were the main subjects of this trip. Did some shopping in the Ginza. Would recommend this trip.William P. Ranson, WV
The trip was outstanding. Hotel room was a decent sized and comfortable. Breakfast was great. Literally no down side was ever. I cannot Imagine getting a better travel deal to Japan. I look forward to seeing what some of your other travel offers. Thank you very much.David H II. Portland, OR
It was fantastic! We got treated incredibly nice every day starting the day of our arrival. It was wonderful. Tokyo is beautiful and the people there are the nicest I've ever met. The hotel was great and the staff was excellent. We had the best vacation.
You exceeded my expectations in the best way. Thank you.Maria P. Bonita, CA
The trip was absolutely wonderful. We had two typhoons and an earthquake while we were in Tokyo. We have never been so drenched but, we had fun In spite of it. Prince hotel was very nice with our rooms being very big by Japanese standards. The breakfast buffet was out of this world. I had been in Japan 20 times before but always independently. I certainly will recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in Japan.Kimiko C. Santa Rosa, CA
We had an INCREDIBLE time in Tokyo. We enjoyed our morning Tour of Tokyo, and loved being able to enjoy Tokyo throughout the other days at our leisure. It was truly a perfect honeymoon!!Laura A. N Hollywood, CA
Trip was fantastic! We had wonderful time & already looking forward to next time. We esp loved our tour guides, Grace in Beijing & Tom in Shanghai. They were fantastic---also, hats off to Gate 1 for very well planned trip----we saw a lot & all seemed well organized & thought out. Thanks to Gate 1 for great time!Franklin R. Woodland Hills, CA
First, our overall rating would be like 9.5 out of 10. In over forty years of travel all over the world this was the first time we had gone with a group. Can you believe that? It did not take long to develop a sense of camaraderie with the others in the same bus.
Cost was exceptional. I do not know how you managed to get it down as low as it was. Group rates, winter season helped, I am sure.
The hotels, both in Beijing and Shanghai were nice, clean, comfortable and in a good location. Service was good.
The day trips were generally well planned with well chosen places of interest--Forbidden City, Great Wall, Ming Tombs and so on.
Frank, our guide in Beijing was just exceptional. His English was great (with a few errors that kept cropping up) and he was articulate, had a sense of humor, knowledgeable and engaging. John in Shanghai gets a 4. His English was not great at all. He seemed somewhat knowledgeable about the country, but not of Frank's caliber. Surely in a population of 1.5 billion you could do better than this.
I know this is common practice (and a great bathroom stop) but the visits to the Pearl Emporium and the Jade place and the Rug outfit should have been optional. We were not there to spend money in places like those (and people on this particular trip are probably bargain hunters in the first place and likely unwilling to spend) but we got the full dose at each place.
The restaurants for lunch were great choices. The Peking Duck dinner in Beijing was a sumptuous feast the likes of which I doubt I will experience again. Just great. A highlight for me.
The buses were like new and in near new condition. The drivers were good, knew where they were going and helpful. Logistics (especially arrival, and then moving from Beijing to Shanghai, and then the trip back, were all handled extremely well.
All in all a memorable trip! Thank YOU Gate 1!Stephen V. Dallas, TX
I can honestly say without any hesitation that Gate 1 exceeded my expectations. I assumed because this was an ‘independent tour,' and because I had purchased it via Groupon that we would be alone most of the time to figure things out for ourselves, except for the excursions we booked through Gate 1; however, I was pleasantly surprised when this was not the case.
From the moment of our arrival, Frank, the tour guide in Beijing, was informative and helpful. He went above and beyond and gave so much information about the wonderful history of China. He ate breakfast with us daily and sought us out for conversation. He even made himself available to help interpret when needed. If you could please pass on how happy we were with both you and Frank to management it would be much appreciated.
Shanghai was a little different. As far as our guide, it was more of what I expected. John didn't really seem to want to engage with the group very much. Even during the excursions, he did not seem happy to be there. It wasn't a terrible experience, it was just different than what we had experienced with Frank.
We just got back and are already looking at the Gate 1 website for future adventures we could take (hopefully Greece). This seemed more like a guided tour (at least the Beijing part) which was something we really enjoyed! We think we would like to have a fully guided tour next time. I really enjoyed how our time was spaced. We also had the pleasure of making some lifelong friends!Elizabeth H. New Braunfels, TX
I absolutely loved my trip! I had a blast. Since I purchased the trip for myself only, and traveled alone, I wondered what the experience would be like for a solo traveler. I met amazing people, and added day tours after the first tour I took because not only were the tours a great deal, but so comprehensive and included lunch. The tour guides were awesome - friendly, informative and helpful. I will travel with Gate 1 again. I just hope that you'll sell more trips with travel dates that are further out than this year. What attracted me to the China tour was not only the unbeatable price, but that I purchased the trip nearly a year before I traveled. That allowed me time to save money and make personal arrangements. Please sell more trips with travel dates into the future, and I will continue to travel.
Thank you for the amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience.Iuliana P. Vancouver, WA
Our trip was awesome. We have never traveled with Gate1 before and we will definitely book another tour with your company. Jason, our tour guide in Beijing, did a wonderful job leading the group. We enjoyed his informational tours.Jennifer G. Sammamish, WA
This was absolutely one of the greatest vacations we have ever had. There was nothing that was not perfect and that most certainly includes our tour guides Nina (Beijing) and Tom (Shanghai). Those two made what would have already been a wonderful trip something truly special. The hotels, the out-of-the way places we ate, the food, the tours, the people…everything was wonderful.
Thank you Gate1 Travel, and especially Nina and Tom for the lifelong memories of a very special time and place. We hope to see you again soonRichard W. Granbury, TX
