We had a wonderful time! We absolutely loved Prague and Budapest and can't wait to go back. The hotels that Gate1 selected were excellent. Very clean, delicious breakfasts, close to public transportation, large sized rooms and helpful staff. The flights on Lufthansa were great. Our guide, Sabi, who rode the bus with us from Prague to Budapest was energetic and helpful. All in all we were very impressed with the package that Gate1 put together and are looking forward to taking another!Cheri T. St Petersburg, FL
Thank you so much! Il have you know my trip exceeded my expectations and I did not regret one thing. It was a life changing experience and I will certainly be back with more people.Louis D. Dobson, NC
My trip to Belgrade was wonderful! I was delighted to find the Christmas markets still up! The Hotel Moskva is a fabulous hotel. The location is perfect and so worth the upgrade!! Our guide ( I'm sorry I don't know his name) was very informative, prompt, polite and friendly. I mostly enjoyed the wine tasting as we were treated like family at the winery! I will highly recommend this trip to my co-travelers! Belgrade is a beautiful city! Air Serbia is a great airline..a lot of room in economy..I signed up for their miles program with Etihad and was upgraded to Business class on my return! The best service I've ever had!Linda G. Bloosmburg, PA
My trip was WONDERFUL! I have used Gate 1 on many Escorted trips and always been very happy, but this was my first Independent trip. As always Gate 1 did a perfect job of setting everything up. The plane connections, the drivers picking me up from the airport and returning me on time, the hotel location and services, everything was perfect! Thank you Gate 1 for another wonderful adventure with absolutely no worries or concerns. Can't wait for my next trip!Billie G. Dallas, TX
We had a great time. Our host Sabi was wonderful in explaining tours extra, and just so pleasant. We loved Hungary and hotel staff were great. The Hotel in Prague was very nice also. We are very pleased with with Gate 1.Karen M. Denver, CO
We thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip. Connecting flights brought us to Budapest on time where we soaked our bones in the Thermal Pools by Heroes Square on day one. The hotel accommodations were adequate and the side tours very informative in both Budapest and then Prague. Food and beverages were grrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeaaaat. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and spoke good English. We would arrange our international travels with Gate1Travel again and have already recommended you to 3 of our traveling friends here in the USA.Terrance W. Pensacola, FL
The trip was wonderful! This was my first trip with Gate 1 and will not be my last. KLM service and crew were friendly, professional, and welcoming. Both hotels and breakfasts were four star all the way. The locations made for getting out to explore each city easy and affordable.
The bus ride from Budapest to Prague was more than first expected. The coach was clean, comfortable, and our driver and guide, Kate, were both very professional, informative and she has a great sense of humor. The ride gave us the chance to meet others on the trip as well as learn more about the history of the area and both countries.
Thank you for helping with the arrangements, your patience while booking, and your guidance with choices.Diane M. Tacoma, WA
