We had a wonderful trip. Our first Gate 1 trip was everything we could ever wished for. Anne our Tour Manager was the best. She was full of information, engaging and so much fun. She cares for her group like a mother hen, anticipating our every need and being available and caring in every situation. She is the best and I am looking forward to be blessed enough to have her as a TM sometime in the future. Anne well done!! I was pleased with all aspects of the tour. Our flight on Air France was great. Accommodations were very good. The local tour guides were knowledgeable. Alain our bus driver was fantastic. Driving a bus through such narrow streets, turning on a dime, just amazing. Our tour was well planned, and the lovely French countryside and so many Chateaus and Cathedrals will live forever in our memory. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to France. We had a good group led by a Fantastic Anne ... Gate 1 you have a gem in Anne.

Our trip was GREAT!!! It was pretty cool, windy and rainy some days there, but I know that Gate 1 didn't have a thing to do with that. Ha. Our tour director, Ann, was fabulous. She was very knowledgeable about the places we were visiting, and she was super nice as well. She had a great attitude and was very accommodating to everyone on the trip. I would give her an A plus for her job. Our bus driver, George, did a great job of keeping us safe and getting us where we were scheduled to be on time. I would give him an A plus as well. Our bus was very comfortable and it was easy to see the beautiful scenery with the nice, wide windows. I loved that they had cooled bottled waters for us every day. Our hotels were great too. Several people on our trip had been on Gate 1 trips before, and they all had nice things to say about Gate 1.

There is no doubt whatsoever that we had the very best Gate 1 had to offer on out Classic Tour of France. Gate 1 should be grateful that they have in their employ our tour manager, Craig, and his accompanying drivers, Alain & Daniel. Craig's knowledge of the history made our trip one that was fuelled with the rich history of France and an enviable memory for dates and the names of the nobility. He successfully combined with this an engaging personality. I observed, from my own work experience, his ability to respond with sincerity to anything that was asked of him. Importantly, he clearly enjoys his chosen occupation and that shows at all stages of his tour management. This is our second Gate 1 tour but not our last.

Our trip to France was fantastic! We were thrilled by all of the sights--it was a wonderful way to experience the beauty of France and the history of the Normandy beaches and the American cemetery. However, the very best part of the trip was our fabulous guide-Simeon! He was charming, warm, informative and entertaining while explaining the sights as well as French history and culture. Our bus driver Derrick was also great! We could not have had a better tour!

The trip was wonderful. Not much sun and a little rain, but did not dampen the spirit. Anna the tour guide and the bus driver were great. The group was such a good group to enjoy the trip with. You can bet we will be going with Gate 1 for a third time. We have a few destinations in mind depending on the price. We are thinking Ireland, Greek Isles, southern Rome or a river cruise.
