Our trip was fantastic. We are so happy with the Gate 1 tour and tour guide. It was all wonderful. Better than we could have imagined. No complaints. Very impressed with the hotels, the meals, the itinerary, the local guides and all the hard work our Gate 1 tour guide put in. His name was Simone'. He arranged so many nice little surprises for us that were above and beyond what was expected. He was a jewel and everyone loved him. The tour eliminated so many hassles for us. We didn't have to wait in lines. All the transportation and tours were on time and we were never left feeling neglected. We can't wait to go on another tour with Gate 1. -Beth Wagoner

We had a wonderful trip. I would like to compliment our guide... She also bought “treats” for us at several locations, ending with a notepad from Florence. She made the trip special. We have been on several tours with other companies, and Gate1 certainly met our expectations. The included dinner at the vineyard was beyond what any other company included in the package.

Dorsey, The trip was as fabulous or maybe even MORE fabulous than the first trip to Italy that I took with Gate1 in 2014, if that’s even possible. Vanni was an outstanding guide. One of the highlights of the trip was running into my former tour guide, Mercedes, in St. Mark’s Square in Venice. I traveled alone knowing that I’d be in good hands with Gate1. You certainly went above and beyond to see to my comfort when sending a driver to and from my entry and exit airports, and the group of people I traveled with were hilariously fun! I will definitely choose Gate 1 for all my travel adventures.

We had a WONDERFUL trip...We were very pleased with the chance to sample local cuisine and wine. We enjoyed the smaller villages and feeling more immersed in the Italian culture. The weather was perfect, seeing the Alps every day was a real treat. Riccardo's choices of where to eat, to sample wines of the region, or try a local food specialty, was very much appreciated.

We had a great trip & a fabulous time on our 16-day tour of Italy with Gate 1 Travel. It exceeded our expectations! Our tour manager, Fabio Rapisardi, was professional, friendly, caring & concerned that everyone was pleased & enjoying their experience. He was the straw that stirred the drink on this tour and has set a high bar for the tour managers on future trips we will be taking with Gate 1 Travel. We thought we got a very good value for what we paid but Fabio with his personal touch, management skills, recommendations for our free time and again his care & concern that everyone was pleased & enjoying the trip made it, by far, the best group tour vacation we ever experienced! Based on the quality of the airline, hotels, meals, local tours, bus transport, transfers, plus other services provided & of course Fabio's management of the trip/tour we feel we can recommend Gate 1 Travel to our family and friends without any reservations. Thank you for a wonderful trip & great memories!

GREAT TRIP!! Wonderful adventure but a lot of walking. The local tour people were very knowledgeable and interested in the group learning about Italy’s treasures. The local director in Rome, Marissa, was especially attentive and related so many interesting tidbits and anecdotes. The Gate1 people were also great and caring – especially Heidi - who phoned us two days in advance to warn us of the impending snow in New York (where we were to connect to the Italy flight) in order to re-route us so we could get to Venice on time. Thanks! This was our third Gate1 trip and we have scheduled our fourth for June of this year.

OMG!!!! Trip to Italy was so awesome words cannot describe. Gate 1 delivered everything you said you would. The emails contained all our information from departure to return. The hotels in Venice, Florence and Rome were outstanding. Now the tour guides... what can I say besides OUTSTANDING!!!! I wish i could have videoed each tour. The information they gave us, was beyond anything you can read in a book. Their home country touches, stories and memories made the whole tour even more special. Our group of nine family members were treated so great.! Our Mom who turned 80 in Dec. was treated as if she was their Mom!! Extra concern for her safety, to making her feel as special as she is, too finding elevators where they could!! Our family will use Gate1 again, hopefully soon!!!!

I was somewhat apprehensive about taking a coach tour... The "comfort" stops along our route were timed just right...We liked that we weren't changing hotels every night...The food was great. And the coffee! And the wine! I just wish I would have picked up a recipe book so that I could try to reproduce some of our favorite dishes back home.

She took care of us throughout the entire tour. Her care and concern is to be emulated by all tour managers and she made the tour experience fun!! From beginning to end, Gate 1 Travel made my travel and trip from destination to destination an easy and great experience!! Much kudos to our other tour guide, Simone!! He was truly excellent in his detailed knowledge and history of every place we visited. It was a pleasure being with him. I will definitely use Gate 1 travel again for other tours. Again, thank you so much for a wonderful tour of Italy!!

The Italy trip was all we had hoped it would be and much, much more. Everything was perfect and we got to see every classic city and famous historic place/monument/museum/ancient ruin, etc. we ever dreamed about. Hotel accommodations were superb and the dinners provided were delicious. We felt so special. Can't say enough positive things about our Tour Manager, Francesca. She was simply wonderful - funny, kind, caring and knowledgeable and most of all patient. Thank You Gate 1 for the trip of a lifetime.

The trip was as expected.....BEAUTIFUL, SPECTACULAR and WONDERFUL, but most of all MEMORABLE. I will treasure it all the days of my life and will look forward to more adventures with Gate 1. The tour guide was wonderful, informative and most of all caring for his group's welfare and well-being. He can surely be recommended for future guided tours by you and me for my friends and others.

Excellent. We had the time of our lives. Vanni our tour guide was fantastic. He told us facts about the country and towns as we were passing through which made the bus rides enjoyable :)
