The trip was GREAT! Was hesitant about how great the deal was but it was a pleasant surprise. Hotel was great and we enjoyed everything!Sheraine G. Jamaica, NY
Terrific! The hotel was perfect for travels seeking to see the city - at a transportation hub; excellent breakfast buffet; quite, comfortable rooms. As you know, the price was amazing.Edsel L. Morristown, NJ
Our trip was wonderful - Now that my kids have all graduated from college my husband and I are traveling and we have taken a few trips with Gate 1 and some other travel sites and now I can really appreciate the great customer service and efficiency of Gate 1- from timely travel documents to booking flights and arranging seating etc. all without any aggravation! When I have called with questions the customer service is top notch. We will definitely be booking with Gate 1 again. Thank you!Jean T. Rocky Point, NY
The trip was great! We really enjoyed All three cities, Barcelona in particular was really nice and Rome is always a great time. It was neat to see Paris too and the tour of the Louvre was incredible, really enjoyed seeing that city at night.Cameron T. Dallas, TX
Italy, and France was amazing. The hotels were great, food and all the attractions we got to visit. We've told so many people about how inexpensive and well worth this trip was. We travel a lot, so this is probably one of the vacations we've taken thus far.Trevarus W. Katy, TX
It was great. I loved every moment. The hotel & flight was comfortable. Everything was handled accordingly to Gate 1 travel arrangements & I can't wait to use Gate 1 Travel for future trips!Brittney W. Baltimore, MD
The BEST experience ever!! the Transfers was there on time and polite...the tour guides very informative and the hotel great hospitality definitely considering another trip soonTyeesh F. Trenton, NJ
My trip to France was great and enjoyable, and our guide was great. She was very knowledgeable and very helpful with everything. One of the best guides I've had on my trips. Thank you very much with your help in setting up my trip.Lupe L. Albuquerque, NM
Our trip was fantastic. Jenny our tour guide was amazing. France is a wonderful place to visit and Gate 1 makes it so easy as they handle all logistics flawlessly. I will recommend Gate 1 to all my friends.Craig C. Garrison, NY
I had a wonderful time. I joined some family members on the tour of Northern France and it exceeded expectations. Craig was our guide and I can't say enough good things about him. He was organized, incredibly helpful and courteous. He was well prepared and very knowledgable. I would definitely consider using Gate1 again.Lauri L. Columbus, OH
It was a wonderful trip. We really enjoyed Paris and all the places we went. The hotels were good and the tour guide, Patrick was knowledgeable and hospitable. The restaurants and wine tastings were superb. We met congenial people on the tour.Donald M. Columbia, MD
Our trip was fantastic. We loved walking the battle grounds in Normandy. It was a very moving experience. Being on Omaha Beach was earth shattering. Our guide, Craig, was one of the best guides we have ever had with our ten trips with Gate 1.Francis S. Summerville, SC
The trip was wonderful. Our guide Edo was informative, pleasant and fun. Our driver, Yennis was awesome. We truly enjoyed the tour and it has inspired us to begin planning another trip to France.Susan C. Hoover, AL
We were very happy with our tour to Paris/Loire Valley and Normandy. Representatives at the airport were waiting for us when we arrived to take us to our hotel. All three hotels visited throughout our trip were extremely nice, clean and in the heart of where we were visiting. All meals provided by Gate 1 were both very good and in wonderful restaurants, especially our final meal as a group where we had an excellent meal with entertainment to end our tour with our other tour members. However what really makes a trip memorable is your tour guide and we had one of the best with Jennie. In our many travels, she was the best time manager we have ever experienced getting us to the tour sites with no waiting, beating the crowds and still allowing us plenty of time to enjoy the sites. She was extremely knowledgeable on site histories and had a wonderful sense of what was important to the group, this was especially evident when in Normandy making sure we visited the areas that our veterans met with such opposition during the landings. In addition to being a wonderful tour guide, she was wonderful assisting us in any questions, reservations or logistics that we had when on our personal time. All in all, Gate 1 did a great job and we would not hesitate taking more trips with your company.Sharon G. The Villages, FL
We had a wonderful time. Weather was virtually perfect, the tour manager was extremely personable and professional, the sights in France were glorious. We returned with memories we will treasure.Michael M. Dunedin, FL
Our trip was one of the most fantastic experiences we have ever had. Our guide (Simeon) was very charming and knowledgeable about all of the locations we visited on the trip. From hotel check in to tickets for entry to side tours, all was handled ahead of time to move our group along in a hassle free enjoyable trip. From Simeon marking our maps to get us around town on our free time to head counts and making sure all were accounted for. We will definitely use Gate 1 again, possibly as soon as next year for a trip to Spain or the Canadian Rockies. I am spreading the word on your behalf of how Gate 1 can make a dream trip become THE trip of a lifetime.Russell H. Phoenix, AZ
We had a wonderful time. This trip was very special since we were celebrating our 50 wedding anniversary. When we got married we could not afford a honeymoon, so we took this perfect trip to celebrating our 50 year late Honeymoon. The tour was perfect for us as I am an artist and a retired art teacher. We were able to visit places that I have only dreamed about: Monet's Garden, house and lily ponds, Leonardo De Vinci's Amboise house and workshop, and Vincent Van Gogh's Arles and St. Paul's Asylum. We also wanted to see Paris, Mont St Michel, the Normandie coast, Tours with its chateaux, cathedrals, Avignon, Nice Monaco, and the Mediterranean Sea. This trip was perfect! Great weather, great food, great traveling companions and especially Siméon, our tour guide/manager. He brought history and locations alive. Great personality and good humor. Enjoyed this whole experience! Thank you Gate 1! Looking forward to traveling with you again, maybe next year.Rita P. Melbourne, FL
It was a very good trip. The group size was ideal. Seeing and tasting along the French countryside was perfect. My favorite was the Bordeaux countryside dinner (optional tour). But to stroll through the many small towns was interesting at best. The flexibility and free time were a plus. I cannot praise our tour director, Craig, enough. He was organized, thorough, focused and always kept the group together. He was so thorough in relating the histories, and background information of all our sights was the best. He was always prepared, patient, and his little touches of serving local aperitifs and treats were a delight. He was always approachable and had a great attitude. I highly recommend this tour and Gate 1 to friends and family.Marvis O. San Francisco, CA
Our trip to France was excellent in large part due to a great Tour Manager, Simeon. He provided wonderful insight to French history and culture and offered great suggestions for things to do and where to eat. Fortunately with our arrival the weather broke and we had primarily partly sunny to sunny days throughout our tour. The itinerary was excellent, the accommodations were great and the professionalism of the Tour Manager, local guides and motor coach drivers was fantastic. My wife and I are already starting to plan our next Gate 1 Tour for 2017.Thomas O. Katonah, NY
It was fantastic. We can't say enough nice things about our guide, Ginny. She was very informative, friendly, and helpful. Although it rained everyday of the tour, we took it in stride and did not deter from our enjoyment. The hotels were nice, the bus was comfortable, food was great, and the other tourists were fun to be with. Our next tour will certainly be Gate 1! Thanks for a wonderful trip! The bus driver, Phillipe, was a great guy and careful driver!Janet B. Kingwood, TX
We were a party of 8 family members traveling together celebrating graduations and anniversaries. Our trip was amazing, showcasing the major sights in Paris, Tours, Bayeau, and Giverny. The northern countryside offered a relaxed step backward in time at the vineyards and châteaus. Normandy was a beautiful but sobering memorial for us (Americans). Mount St Michel and Claude Monet's gardens were as interesting as lovely. Versailles was a breathtaking understanding behind the French revolution. Our tour guide was Jamil who was a wonderful mentor with a humorous touch. He made our anniversary celebration very special. Our group ranged from ages 19 to 76 and this tour accommodated everyone's interests. The food was delicious, the company special, and the other 31 participants were fun to befriend. The only thing I would have added would have been a short evening excursion to the Louvre. We were well pleased with Gate 1. Thank you!Ann L. Baton Rouge, LA
Our tour manager, Jamil, was wonderful. He was so knowledgeable, kind and helpful throughout the trip. One of the areas of the tour was Normandy and in our group was a WWII veteran named Henry. It was so nice to have shared this visit with him and his family. At the American Cemetery, Jamil made a special moment for Henry so we as a group could thank him for his service and we sang the National Anthem. Actions like this make a outstanding tour manager. This was my second trip with Gate 1. Looking forward to another.Linda B. Lakewood, OH
It was great, very enjoyable; we had a very good group. Most of the hotel accommodations were decent with easy access to town centers. Our tour director, Jean was very good; he is very experienced, detail oriented, provides a lot of interesting local & national history of France and current affairs. He worked very hard to try to give us the best traveling experience in his country.Timothy L. Woodcliff Lk, NJ
Fabulous! Very pleased with our accommodations . The breakfasts were excellent. We will be traveling with Gate 1 again.Lee T. Damascus, MD
Amazing! Breathtaking! Romantic! Incredible! Did I say amazing? Beautiful, bustling Paris; a high-speed train adventure; a medieval town high in the French Alps; a bus trip along the Mediterranean Sea to the glittering lights of Monte Carlo! I cannot thank Gate 1 Travel enough for putting together such a wonderful trip. From the flights; to the hotels; to the included stops; the optional excursions; the train; the bus driver, Rene; the tour guide…all top notch! Especially, our guide, Jenny. Jenny was wonderful…a treasure Gate 1 should hold onto! So informative and organized, and a beautiful personality. She really knows her stuff and you could tell she enjoyed it…I never thought I’d learn so much on vacation! I’m already planning my next vacation with Gate 1! I am happily posting this review online!Charlotte M. Old Bridge, NJ
We had a wonder trip to Paris! Our air travel went off without a hitch and all of our flights were on time and as expected. Our stay in Paris was wonderful. Our hotel was quite comfortable and modern. We didn't spend much time there but the time we did was nice. The free buffet daily breakfast was very good and saved us a ton of money. Thanks to Gate 1 Travel for your help in making this vacation a wonderful experience.Kathleen R. Glenside, PA
Everything was great! Our tour guide was organized and knowledgeable and the tour itself all we ever could have hoped for. All in all, a wonderful experience.Lois S. Longview, TX
Thank you. I absolutely loved France, and particularly Paris. I guess I never believed the hype that it was a beautiful and romantic city, and yet I discovered it truly was--and is now my most beloved city in the world! I'm so grateful to have had the opportunity to have done this particular package because it was more than just Paris, including Normandy, Mont Saint-Michel and the Loir Valley...all places for which France is famed but not everyone gets out to see. It was a lot to cram into a trip, but in travelling so far, it is best to make the most to experience everything one can in the time there. I studied French in school, picking it as my second language of study because it sounded so elegant to my ear, and my lessons were integrated with anecdotes about French history, culture, and geography in both high school and college. The places we visited thus had a ring of familiarity to me by such association, and it's gratifying that I've now actually seen and experienced them! I understand from our tour guide Ann (who was excellent) that Gate 1 offers a tour package of the south of France and Monaco, and I think I'd be interested in doing that someday, as northern France (particularly Normandy) had pretty nasty weather (c'est la vie, as the French say!). Bring on the sunshine in the Riviera and lavender fields of Provence!Edward G. San Diego, CA
We had a fabulous time...walking, exploring. French people were great. Our hotel in France was great! The breakfasts in both places was more than we expected and very good. Thanks for a great trip.Virginia N. Devon, PA
The Paris ,northern France trip was wonderful. Our tour guide Ann was fabulous and made it a truly wonderful experience. We saw more and learned more about Paris and the great sites we visited, than we could have ever done on our own. Ann was the best, and our driver Frank was always there for us. Thanks for a great trip Gate 1Beverly H. New Prt Rchy, FL
We had a excellent trip. Really liked the itinerary. Exceptional weather and Patrick, our guide, was OUTSTANDING. Patrick spoke perfect English and was a real pro. Would love to take another trip with Patrick.Philip L. Hemlock, MI
The trip was great. Our hotel room was small, even compact, but it was clean, very well located and the staff was extremely helpful. This is what we hoped for when we selected that hotel.
Both the air and the ground transportation arranged were efficient and on time. We have traveled with Gate 1 in the past and will continue to rely on your good service in the future.Gary H. Monkton, MD
The trip was so much better than I could have imagined! Everything went smoothly and, better than that, our tour guide, EDO, was wonderful and made everything interesting and informative, made everyone on the journey feel equally important and maintained a sense of relaxed enthusiasm which was then shared by all of us. Our rooms were great, our "official" dinners were wonderful and were in colorful and interesting places. Our driver was competent and skilled. He was also unfailingly good humored and calm. Thank you so very much, Ahmad, for helping me plan for this wonderful trip and thank your company for me for making everything so memorable. Bravo to you all.Marjorie O. Sparks, NV
Our trip to France with Gate 1 was wonderful in every way.
Our guide, Anne, made it so. She was professional, knowledgeable and quite humorous. Everything was perfect. My daughter, Nora, and I were very impressed by her.
Seeing Normandy and the Landing Beaches were the highlights of the tour. Mont St Michel was extraordinary and I am so glad that I was able to make the climb to the top. The view of the bay was just awesome! Giverny and Monet's gardens were so beautiful as was Paris, of course.
My daughter and I are looking forward to traveling again with Gate 1, next time to visit the south of France.Catherine S. Bayside, NY
My trip was great. It was my first time going to Europe, and I had a lot of fun. Anne is a great tour manager. I learned a lot about French histories, cuisines, and cultures. Rick is also a great driver. I don't think I can drive on those narrow roads in the countryside.
Thank you. I would definitely choose Gate 1 again in the future if I plan to visit other parts of Europe.Zhan Y. Rocky Hill, CT
It was absolutely perfect! Everything was so well organized and planned down to the last detail. We especially enjoyed our excellent guide, Simeon! He was very pleasant and entertaining and knowledgeable about the French customs and history. We will definitely recommend and sing Gate 1 Travel and travel again with you.Mary S. Springer, OK
The trip was great!
Everything went smoothly, our fellow travelers were a nice group, and we loved our guide, Simeon. We learned a lot about France's history. I've been to France a number of times before, but the D-Day beaches, Amboise, Bayeux, and Giverny were new to me and I loved them all.
My teenaged daughter had a great time too and especially loved Mont St. Michel and the D-Day beaches. A great value and I will recommend this tour to my friends and family.Nancy S. Alhambra, CA
The trip to France was Absolutely wonderful! Truly a trip of a lifetime! We saw so much! Among my favorites were Paris (of course!) and Giverney where Monet's home and gardens were! All the flowers were in bloom! It was beautiful! Normandy was so touching and humbling- I did not know the American cemetery is considered American soil! The French Riviera and Nice were beyond words! I feel so fortunate to have seen all this with the most amazing weather AND the most wonderful tour guide Jenny! She was a gem - caring, organized, friendly and so knowledgeable on all the history! The other people on the trip with us were just terrific too! The chanenceaux and Chamborg castles and Mont St Michele - all amazing !
Thank you to gate 1 for this marvelous trip - I have many memories that will last a Lifetime!Loretta W. Wilmington, DE
Our trip through Normandy, Paris and the Loire valley was superb. Anne, our guide, was delightful... Extremely knowledgeable and professional while being naturally personable and gracious. She definitely made the trip more special. We hope to return to that area one day. We spend a lot of time in southern France, but, with the exception of Paris, we had not visited the surrounding region.Laurie N. Sierra Vista, AZ
I really enjoyed the trip. Been to Europe a few times, and this continued the grand experience. Your hotel choices were magnificent, and the tour options we chose worked out perfectly.
The air portion worked out perfectly, as you allowed us to go non-stop from SFO to Paris on AirFrance with a nominal fee, and of course the non-stop option was the way to go.
When I called your people before the trip, every time, they were very courteous and very helpful. I will definitely use Gate1 in the future and will be recommending it to my friends,Anthony S. San Jose, CA
The trip was absolutely fabulous. My daughter and I had the times of our lives! The hotels in Paris and Rome were both excellent! Location couldn't have been better. The Holiday Inn in Paris had a more contemporary European flair, while the Hotel Solis in Rome was truly "old world." Rooms were tiny, but we've traveled in Europe and understand hotel rooms are for sleeping, and not much more. Loved them both!! Staff members of both hotels were fabulous - so kind and helpful. Breakfast and free Wi-Fi? My daughter was in heaven. The flight from Dulles to Paris was cancelled/delayed four hours, so we lost a little bit of time, and had to ask someone to change seats so we could sit together, but everything worked out.
Can't thank you and Gate 1 for the wonderful memories. Will definitely recommend you all to friends and family, and will use your services again.Brenda C. Woodbridge, VA
The trip was AWESOME and Anne-Mette (tour director) and Frank (Driver) were both fantastic. It was a wonderful experience, especially as this was our first trip with Gate1.
:)Wendy L. Hayward, CA
Tina and I had a wonderful time traveling with Gate 1! Anne our guide was the consummate professional. She ensured all details of our journey were covered. Her enthusiasm for the sights we visited was infectious. At times, Tina experiences motion sickness. It was brought to Anne's attention. Anne without delay accompanied Tina to a pharmacy and provided assistance in obtaining treatment for her. We will always be grateful for her kind and prompt assistance. She is an asset to your fine organization.
Franc our driver was highly skilled and of the same caliber as Anne. The ultimate compliment to a driver is that you feel safe and relaxed- Franc made us feel both. His navigation of narrow side streets was truly a spectacle to behold.Bart G. Delray Beach, FL
It was AMAZING!!! The best trip I ever had in my life. Your team worked so hard to get us there on time through all the delays and closures, due to inclement weather. Your team's customer service is AWESOME! I am looking to book another European trip in the future with Gate1 Travel.Yolanda C.
OOOOMMMMMMGGGGGG!!! It was amazing! So since it was our honeymoon, we were going to have a great time regardless, but I can say it was a real treat from start to finish. I ran into some passport issues (my fault), but Gate 1 was right on it, and adjusted the trip so that we were on the plane the very next day-and it didn't cost us an arm and a leg to do so. Each hotel was convenient to our hop-on/hop-off tours that we had pre-booked, and so getting around town was very easy. The hotels are indigenous to the location, and although they were compact, they were clean and efficient.
Being in the local areas, as opposed to a big "brand" hotel, provided more of a local feel to the trip. There were several couples from the states that had the same idea as us; we met 3 couples from Baltimore and a couple from Las Vegas that all booked w/Gate 1. We are planning our next trip (it is going to be an annual thing), and once we decide our location, you better believe we will be booking with Gate 1!
Thanks again, you put the icing on our "new life together" cake!Shawna D. Atlanta, GA
Our trip to France was fantastic. We were so fortunate to have Edo as our guide and he made the streets, buildings and people of France come to life. We loved Mont St-Michel, Omaha Beach, the chateaus and the countryside. We are primarily vegetarians and not among those who consider a trip for epicurean delights, so we were pleasantly surprised to find great food for lunches on our own, as well as beautiful dinners that Gate 1 provided. Edo went out of his way to make sure my dinner was not fish or pork or beef. He is a real asset to Gate 1 Travel. I have recommended this trip to several others who will be signing up for May dates of travel. I can only hope their tour guide is Edo, or as good as Edo.
Thanks for making this one more memorable Gate 1 experience.Peter T. Cody, WY
Our trip was wonderful. France is a beautiful country and Paris is overwhelming. Thank you for helping to arrange our extra day in Paris. It was definitely worth it; we would never have been able to visit many of the landmarks. Our guide, Jamil was a wealth of information and very personable. We learned a great deal from him.
This is our second trip with Gate 1 and we are very pleased. We have recommended the site to others and will call again when we are ready for our next adventure. Thanks againLinda C. Woodstock, MD
Gate 1 you've done it again! My wife and I could not have asked for anything more. From the time we arrived in Amsterdam to the morning we left from London our Tour Manager (Peter) was right there to help us with all our needs. All the hotels were first class with exceptional service. We can't say enough about the guides we had; all were very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Thank you Gate 1 for providing the great service and personnel to make our trip another memorable one. Keep up the good work.George B. Gautier, MS
Our trip was wonderful! We loved our Tour Guide Dereck. He did a marvelous
job. Never had a guide that was so caring and organized. Can't say enough great
things about him. Hope to get him on a future trip. You know a tour guide can
make or break a trip. Hats off to the great bus
drivers too! Trip was beyond our expectations! We will certainly use Gate 1 Travel in the future.
The trip was fantastic. Everything surpassed our expectations, and our Tour Guide, Derek, was terrific. I enjoyed the accommodations, the locations, the breakfasts, the tours- everything was great. We are already looking forward to booking our next trip with Gate 1- the 15 day Spain & Portugal!Irene A. Mission Viejo, CA
