The Germany, Switzerland and Austria trip was our 15th trip with Gate 1 Travel. Our tour manager Noel was by far one of the best. He was friendly and professional. He commanded control of the group from day one. He stressed safety repeatedly throughout the trip. He gave us plenty of information for each country without overwhelming us. He was able to create harmony among the group, which allowed the tour to be very enjoyable.

We had a wonderful trip and enjoyed the experience. Our tour manager, Lidia, was wonderful. Her easy manner and smiling face made the hassle of early mornings and busy schedules worth the effort. This was our first Gate One tour, but, because of Lidia, probably not our last. Additionally, our bus driver, Andrew, was friendly, helpful and an expert in his field.

Our trip was great. Charlotte, our guide, was very special. I’ve taken many trips and all our tour guides were very good.

Our trip was fantastic! We had a wonderful week in Germany (went by way too fast). My wife and I were talking the other night while we were showing our parents some of the photos we took, and we were in agreement that we would both absolutely travel through Gate 1 again in the future. Our tour guide, Noel, did a wonderful job--he kept us on schedule and kept us engaged and laughing. Only wish I could have spent another week traveling around Europe with him. Overall, I wouldn't have changed a thing about our time in Germany. It was a trip we will always remember.

He even helped me get to the airport safely to go home by letting me know the right train station to get on at. Konrad our driver, was equally excellent. He knows how to handle a big bus superbly and was always helping load and unload the bags as well as helping some of the older ladies out of the bus. Some of the roads we went down in the bus I would have trouble getting down in my car let alone a vehicle as large as the bus. He was also considerate of our comfort whilst traveling between destinations and would raise or lower the thermostat according to how everyone was feeling. He was also pleasant to talk to and it is nice to be around people who genuinely enjoy their jobs. The same goes for Claus as well. I would definitely go on a Gate 1 tour again as this was such a wonderful experience.

It was SO great! Our tour manager Dominique took great care of us. She always had time for any questions we had, no matter what she was doing at the moment. She always had a smile and was so professional and pleasant. The accommodations were great. Meals were great. The bus was clean and we had a very good driver. Water was supplied every day. Gate 1 took great care of us!

Exceptional!!!! Joanna our tour manager was outstanding. She made hand-outs, trivia contests, language lessons, tastings, DVDs, music and more. As a retired teacher, I appreciated all the extra time she put in to make her country shine. She even assisted us in finding our Polish roots. Now I know why I like to bake--my ancestors came from a town that perfected the art of making gingerbread. My sister and I do an annual adventure. We are looking forward to #8 with Gate 1 next year.

As ALWAYS, this Gate 1 trip was absolutely AMAZING. Our guide, Fred, was the BEST. Each time I travel with Gate 1, I think the tour guide has set a new bar. Fred has exceeded that standard of excellence! He was informative, always attentive to everyone's needs and requests, and funny....so funny. Importantly, he kept us safe. He made each and every city and country come alive. In addition, the tour guides in each city were phenomenal. I understand they have a rigorous course of education and testing to become a certified tour guide....well, they too outdid themselves. The history and information that they conveyed simply cannot be garnered from tour books. The hotels were fabulous! I truly don't know how Gate 1 does it, but we could not have asked for better accommodations. And I can't forget Bart, our bus driver. At all times Bart kept us safe. He is so skilled - what an amazing driver. This was a "trip of a lifetime" for my son and I couldn't have been more pleased with the outstanding quality of the itinerary and especially of the tour guides and accommodations. THANK YOU again and again, Gate 1, for another amazing adventure! Looking forward to the next one.

We loved the food, the tours, the people, the arts and music! All were beyond wonderful! Our guide Jolanta P. was exceptionally well-versed in all things Polish and gave us an insider's view of the rich cultural heritage of Poland. We will definitely be planning another visit as well as tell all our friends about the fabulous time we had!

I have to tell you that it was a MARVELOUS vacation and tour. Izabella Sliwinski has been the BEST tour guide we have ever had. She has a great personality, considerate, really concerned about the welfare of all the travelers, great suggestions of where to go when there was free time... This was our first experience with Gate 1 Travel and it will not be our last. We were impressed with the hotels chosen, the food, the hospitality of all. The driver was great, the coach was terrific. All I can say is that it was a marvelous time and Thank You for paying attention to details.

Our trip to Poland was great! Yolanta was a warm, friendly, very well-informed guide, one of the best we have had in our travels ... Franek was an amazing driver. Gate1 seems to have a knack for choosing city guides who love their city and want us to see it as they do. We learned so much about Poland, its people, and its historic cities. We were very impressed with the people and the culture, and of course, the food! Gate1 provides a wonderful experience.

We had a good group of people on the tour-made some new friends. Especially liked Brataslava and Prague, but all of the countries we visited were terrific. Food and hotel accommodations were centrally located and very nice...We will definitely plan on going on another Gate 1 trip in the future.

We had a wonderful time with our group specially with the tour manager Noel Percival and the driver Adam. Noel took care of us as if we’re family. Everything was taken care of and we left on time in all of our trips. Adam drove the bus with care and precision navigating the streets which are not as wide as our street here. He also took charge of our luggages as well. As representatives of Gate1 travel, Noel and Adam worked together to make our stay an enjoyable experience. Gate1 should recommend those two on trips to Eastern Europe. Our local guides are knowledgeable of the places we visited especially the Bratislava guide Slovoda who gave as a brief history in a nutshell as well as speaking fluent English. Gate1 is number 1!

We had a fantastic time on our trip to the Christmas Markets. It was everything a Christmas Market trip should be. It was cold and we had snow a few times and got snowed on in the markets in Munich as well. We only had one day of rain so we were very happy about that. We had lots of hot mulled wine, bratwurst, sauerkraut, gingerbread and all things yummy at the markets and local restaurants plus enjoyed some of the beer halls along with museums, art galleries, shopping and history. Europe does Christmas so well with all the lights and the atmosphere, everywhere was lovely. Our tour guide Noel was fantastic and we also had a great group and everyone got on really well even though there were 42 of us. We will keep an eye out for other tours and expect we will also not receive Gate1 emails with tour info, specials etc.

The trip was wonderful! Everything went smoothly and the entire experience was so enjoyable! Our tour guide, Clare Murphy, was absolutely the best! She was very clear as to what we would be doing each day, what was available for us to do, where to meet, etc. She handled our group nicely and was cognizant of the different personalities that make up tour groups. She was very well versed in the languages we encountered and obviously has a vast knowledge of the local history, culture and cuisine. We particularly enjoyed the mix of guided tours and free time to explore. Clare was most generous with her time and with providing us with local treats! We appreciated how protective she was and how safe she made us feel. She is an asset to Gate 1 Travel! Our coach driver, Erhard, was excellent and made us feel safe while in his care. His attitude was friendly and we were glad he was driving and we weren't! We were very pleased with our accommodations and were able to enjoy the last few days in Vienna with our newly married daughter and her husband....When we decide to travel again, we will certainly have Gate 1 Travel at the top of our list!

He even bought us some of the best Austrian strudel we've ever tasted. The sights we saw in Germany,Austria and Switzerland were amazing. We learned so much about history and culture from Noel and the local guides. We even made it to Oktoberfest in Munich, which was an added bonus. This is our third trip with Gate 1 and we hope to do many more with you.

Marvelous!!!! We travel a lot, both with organized trip companies like Gate 1 and with our own planned itineraries. Each of our trips has been unique and never once turned into a bad idea. In short we'd do them all again. Gate 1 has evolved over time to be our favorite travel company. Well done Gate 1 for each and every time.  Great value with excellent staff, hotels and excursions.  Keep up the great work.  We currently have two more trips planned with Gate 1 in the not too distant future and are looking forward to your usual level of excellence. However the Danube River with Prague and Budapest is no doubt our favorite trip ever. Gate 1 has done a superb job and your staff must be complimented.  Thanks for your effort it was appreciated greatly. While special notice is not something I usually do since the whole package takes a team effort I must compliment Sabi our tour director and Judith at reception on the Sound of Music. This is not to say that all the rest were not fantastic as each and every one can be singled out as just perfect, but these two just seemed to be there each time we talked and we talked with them a lot.  I worked for a pharmacy chain in my previous life that prided itself on it's people skills.  These two we got to know and enjoyed every moment with them.  Exceptional people pleasers as that chain would say.

Way to go Gate 1!!!!

Our trip was amazing!  Gate 1 provides superior customer service which includes our tour guide, Dean, and our driver, Laszlo; both of these gentlemen were courteous, polite and knowledgeable.  Our local guides were also knowledgeable and entertaining, we could not have asked for any better attention to personal needs or information.  Our tour group was comprised of people of different nationalities and cultures who got along very well.  We made friends we hope to see again.  I would recommend Gate 1 to all of my friends and look forward to my next tour.

The trip was very pleasant and everything was, as usual, well organized, planned and executed to our complete satisfaction.

We were lucky to have Robert, again, as our guide in this trip (we had him two years ago in another trip with Gate 1 Travel) his outstanding  knowledge of European history was a plus and made the trip even more enjoyable. His English sense of humor added also a lot of good and laughing moments.

I would like to mention, also, the professionalism of our driver Michael that made our trip safe and relaxed. Worth to mention also his positive attitude to help and be of service to everyone in the group. Congratulations to the Company management for having such good and dedicated professionals within its staff. Needles to mention our preference favoring always Gate 1 Travel when it comes to our traveling plans, year after year. Gentlemen this is our eleventh trip with Gate One travel (there is one missing in the records of your company)!!!.

Our trip was a real success.  Both airport and hotel shuttles were ready for us when we needed them. The hotel accommodations were top notch, with welcoming staff and excellent breakfasts, and conveniently located to historical downtown shopping areas. The tour itself was well organized, and we appreciated all the planned lunches and dinners. Our tour director--Radu--was an amazing guide, probably the BEST we will ever experience. The sites were all interesting, but Radu's accompanying commentaries were unbelievably good! He was truly a great leader/director for us, always the life of our party, bubbling with enthusiasm and overflowing with cultural information during the entire tour. He was always prepared to handle every unexpected incident.  We are so lucky to have had him and will never forget him.

Thanks Gate1.

The trip to Budapest, Vienna and Prague was wonderful.  Dean, our tour manager was fabulous.  He was knowledgeable, intelligent, funny and patient. His personality was great!   Every detail was taken care of by Dean.  He went out of his way to make each city easily navigable for everyone.  When we arrived in a city, he walked us around so we knew where we were.   He was attentive to everyone's particular needs.  The tours of each city, as well as all of the optional tours were terrific! The local tour guides were excellent. They had a wealth of knowledge about their city and incredible outgoing personalities!  The hotels were perfect!  Many areas of interest were within walking distance to the hotels.  This was our second tour with Gate 1 and we are looking forward to our next one!  Thanks Gate 1 for an incredible experience.

The trip was very good.  Bogdan, our primary guide paid attention to every detail and made everything work smoothly.  He also provided a lot of information about where we were at any point in time and a good history of life in that part of the world based on personal experience. 

Our various guides for specific places we visited were also very good.  The remote speakers in which we used an earphone meant that we didn't have to stay extremely close to our guides when walking through often crowded places.  Some of the special events were particularly outstanding, especially the Danube River cruise in Budapest and the concert in Vienna.  Both my wife and I were well satisfied with all aspects of this trip.
