Our honeymoon trip to Italy was amazing! A dream come true! We cannot say enough about our tour guide Simone. He knew so much and always had us smiling and ready for our next day of travel; letting us know the weather, the type of shoes to wear and all the little important details. We had just enough time for touring and down time to do our own thing. We're already looking into booking another Gate 1 tour! Thank you so much! It was worth every penny and we cannot wait to travel with your company again!!

I had a wonderful time. We only had 24 people on the tour and they were a nice bunch. It was nice not having to deal with a larger group. There were also some younger people which made it fun. I really enjoyed the cruise and would not hesitate to use the cruise line again

16 Day Italy with 7 Day Western Med Cruise, June 2013
Dummy Image

The trip was fabulous. From the time we landed in Venice, until we departed from the cruise ship, everything went according to the itinerary. The sightseeing venues were spectacular and the side trips to a Tuscan Farm for wine tasting and dining at an authentic Tuscan Restaurant, were memorable. What made the trip so enjoyable and special was our Tour Manager, Vanni. He was organized, timely and extremely knowledgeable of the places we visited. Vanni went beyond the call of duty to make sure a valuable necklace I lost in the Vatican was returned to me before my departure. We met some wonderful people during the tour, but none quite as nice as Vanni.

I will be sure to spread the word about how awesome the trip was to my family and friends. Gate 1 is the #1 Travel Tour Company in my book.

Our trip was amazing, thanks to the efficiency of Gate 1. From the hotel booking to the excursions and Norwegian cruise booking, all were undertaken in a professional manner. Barcelona was one of our favorite cities and the hotel was so conveniently situated as well. The tour company chosen was excellent and as for the cruise, just sheer luxury. We will definitely use Gate 1 again.

12 Day Barcelona with 9 Day Canary Islands Cruise, March 2013
Dummy Image

Our trip was perfect. Barcelona is a city with a metro that is easy to navigate and use. Our cruise was beautiful. The Novotel was easily located just a couple of blocks from the metro, with a shopping center directly across the street. We had transport from hotel to the cruise ship which was
most helpful and had no trouble taking public transport back to the Novotel after the cruise.

The Madeira island was just one of the most beautiful places on the earth, the luscious foliage in the parks with statues and water fountains made a statement of the values of the people of this Portugal owned island. The Canary Islands are truly like a paradise. We look forward to working with Gate 1 again in the future!
