Aaaaamazing! The hotels were good, especially the Callirhoe in Athens. The location was perfect and that view in the restaurant!!! We loved our guide Helena. She is so very knowledgeable and really brings the history to life!!! What a surprise to have Panos as a guide during the cruise portion. Gate 1 is really savvy to have a cruise director. This was our first large ship cruise. Panos organization and advice about the excursions, getting on/off at ports of call, and general helpfulness made it so much more maneuverable! Thank you tons and more for helping us with the reservations Gate 1. We will be contacting you soon to plan a new adventure!

We had a great trip. Sophia, our guide was amazing. She had an endless knowledge of Greek history and culture and was able to relate it to all the things we saw. George, the bus driver was a careful driver and a gentleman. The trip went smoothly and the group size was great. This was our first discovery tour, although we have traveled many times with Gate 1, and I am sure we will do this again.

We had a wonderful time in Greece! Sandra (our tour guide), along with Nick (our bus driver) made the trip run smoothly. Sandra was very welcoming and knowledgeable about all areas we visited. We were also fortunate that the tour was planned so that we were often the first bus to arrive at sites which helped to lessen the wait times and crowds who would arrive later. The weather cooperated fully throughout our trip too! Looking forward to planning our next Gate 1 trip!

The trip was just absolutely remarkable. You guys cannot be paying Militsa enough. She is a great ambassador for your company and for the country that she loves. Because of her commentary the whole experience was richer. She provided great information on each site that we visited but perhaps more importantly for me she offered information on Greek life and the Greek people that was not available in the guide books. My wife and I were as interested in the lives of the people who live in Greece as we were about the sites. Militsa happily answered our, no doubt tedious, questions. She even provided Greek treats for the tour participants. Basically she treated us like family and it made the trip that much more enjoyable.

This was our first Gate 1 tour and I must say it was outstanding. We saw so much of Greece, both the islands and mainland in the 2 weeks we were there. I couldn't have asked for more. Celestyal Crystal was an older ship, the crew kept it spic and span and provided such wonderful service ... The food was excellent and a good variety. The provided tours, drink package, and other add ons were great. Although the cruise was contracted to Celestyal, having Constantine and Julia along to guide us through things and insure we got everything we were supposed to was stellar. The hotels and their buffets were great. We had a free cooking class for lunch, that was great; thank you Gate 1 ... All the Gate 1 personnel at the airport, hotels, tours, etc were super. This was an outstanding value for the money! We ran into many other people on this trip that had been on prior Gate 1 tours and could only say the best things. We look forward to traveling with them in the future, possibly a Russian river cruise in 2020. We're already committed through 2019. Once again, thanks for a wonderful experience Gate 1!

She is highly skilled professional, very personable and outgoing. She is so well organized, that our experience felt seamless and effortless. We have visited amazing places, learned a lot about Greek history, culture, and traditions. We stayed in the big city and visited small places, got introduction to the islands.

It was a great trip. Combining the land tour with the cruise was a great idea; see it all while we were there. Both of the guides were really good; Panos was so fun and Maria was almost as good as Nam (our first guide with Gate 1, in Turkey. He set the bar really high as he was so phenomenal). Greece is wonderful, the islands beautiful, the country magical in it's mythology and ancient ruins. We look forward to our next trip in December to India/Nepal. Thanks again for all you've done for us.

It was nice! The trip was better than I thought it would be. It provided a good overview of Greece and Greek history. I like that Gate 1 is efficient for the traveler. No waiting in lines and getting to the interesting sites early in the morning so that it is uncrowded and before it gets too hot. We were able to probably do 50% more in the same amount of time over trying to coordinate everything on our own. I was pleased with the ship as well, "Olympia". The food was on par with other cruise ships of that category/hotels and the bar service through out the ship was the very best that I have experienced and this was my 60th cruise. Also liked all the specialty coffee choices and bottled water being included as well as drinks and soda. The hotels were all very nice and in good locations. All the Gate 1 representatives and guides did a real good job. I would rate this Greece trip and the trip that we took to Croatia with Gate 1 as top rated for our vacation experiences. Looking forward now to that Morocco trip. I would recommend to other travelers to take the additional excursions offered by Gate 1 and what they offered at the ship with Gate 1 representative. It leaves you feeling that you saw and did all that you could possibly do in a very short time frame, especially if the budget only allows for one trip to those locations in a lifetime. I would encourage other travelers to take the trips while they are still young because the amount of energy needed could be demanding. A lot of stairs, hills, uneven surfaces and hot weather.

Our trip was awesome! Greece is a beautiful country with so much history. We are so happy to have traveled with Gate 1- each time we dealt with a Gate 1 rep, we were impressed. Each tour guide was knowledgeable, each pick up or transfer was timely and friendly- we couldn’t be happier. Thanks for your help planning this trip!
