We had a great time on the Venice, Florence, and Rome tour! Such fun and beauty! Our guide was Francesco. He was great. You could tell he had a great love and enthusiasm for the cities we visited, which was contagious! We very much enjoyed his humor and he was very well organized. We found him to be knowledgeable and very responsive to any of our requests and questions. I could tell he enjoyed his job, but of course he had us as a perfect group too, lol. Our city tour guides were great too. Especially the handsome Marco in Venice, lol. He was very knowledgeable and extremely funny! The trip was very packed, but because of that we felt that we got to see all the important sights. Everything ran smoothly. The tours and dining experiences were delicious and lovely. Especially enjoyed the Opera dinner theater. Such a unique event. And the Gondola ride was amazing. I'll never forget gliding out of a narrow canal into the Grand Canal as the musician, singer, and our group belted out the song Volare!! Love Gate 1!

Our trip was everything we wanted and more!! The accommodations in Montecatini were wonderful. The people who worked here were awesome. The scenery was fabulous. The hotel in Milan the last night was not so nice. Front desk lady was not very pleasant or helpful. Location to the airport was great. We met many other people who were traveling on Gate 1 travel and who had traveled many times before. They spoke very highly of the trips. We look forward to taking another trip with Gate 1 travel at a later day. My overall experience and recommendation would be AAA+ for this trip through Gate 1 travel.

This was my husband and my first trip abroad and the information provided by Gate 1 Travel was invaluable. Thanks for providing such a memorable experience; we look forward to using Gate 1 Travel in the future.

It was incredible! Sicily was way more beautiful than any other place I've been. We are hoping to plan another trip soon but this one will be tough to beat!

My mother and I can't stop talking to all of family and friends about our trip. Italy was INCREDIBLE! Vanni our Tour Guide went WELL beyond our expectations. He should be the only person giving tours there because his knowledge and passion towards his country enhanced our adventures. We have absolutely nothing bad to share about your trip. The itinerary was excellent and I'm so glad we added the extra tours and meals. OMG! The Tuscany Winery Dinner was AWESOME! All of our Hotels were fabulous and the Hotel Staff were all very welcoming and helpful when we had questions. I was super surprised that Wifi was on the Bus and at our Hotels. After everyday of adventures, I posted the photos on Facebook and shared what we did. My cousins in Ohio were extremely motivated after seeing what we did and they called my mother and I to get more information on Gate 1 Travel. So....expect some more folks to join the Italy experience via Gate 1. Again...Thank you for everyone who put this tour together. I will continue to promote your website as much as a I can!
