Dorsey, The trip was as fabulous or maybe even MORE fabulous than the first trip to Italy that I took with Gate1 in 2014, if that’s even possible. Vanni was an outstanding guide. One of the highlights of the trip was running into my former tour guide, Mercedes, in St. Mark’s Square in Venice. I traveled alone knowing that I’d be in good hands with Gate1. You certainly went above and beyond to see to my comfort when sending a driver to and from my entry and exit airports, and the group of people I traveled with were hilariously fun! I will definitely choose Gate 1 for all my travel adventures.

We had a great trip & a fabulous time on our 16-day tour of Italy with Gate 1 Travel. It exceeded our expectations! Our tour manager, Fabio Rapisardi, was professional, friendly, caring & concerned that everyone was pleased & enjoying their experience. He was the straw that stirred the drink on this tour and has set a high bar for the tour managers on future trips we will be taking with Gate 1 Travel. We thought we got a very good value for what we paid but Fabio with his personal touch, management skills, recommendations for our free time and again his care & concern that everyone was pleased & enjoying the trip made it, by far, the best group tour vacation we ever experienced! Based on the quality of the airline, hotels, meals, local tours, bus transport, transfers, plus other services provided & of course Fabio's management of the trip/tour we feel we can recommend Gate 1 Travel to our family and friends without any reservations.

GREAT TRIP!! Wonderful adventure but a lot of walking. The local tour people were very knowledgeable and interested in the group learning about Italy’s treasures. The local director in Rome, Marissa, was especially attentive and related so many interesting tidbits and anecdotes. The Gate1 people were also great and caring – especially Heidi - who phoned us two days in advance to warn us of the impending snow in New York (where we were to connect to the Italy flight) in order to re-route us so we could get to Venice on time. Thanks! This was our third Gate1 trip and we have scheduled our fourth for June of this year.

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.

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!

Our trip overall was wonderful! Rome and the ports of call were great! Surprisingly my favorite port was Turkey! I really enjoyed the tour and the tour guide. Again, overall a great experience. Thank you for all you help in making our arrangements!

The trip was great! The transfers and hotel were nice and well located. Half day tour was 6 people on a huge tour bus and we were able to have 4 hours of personal touring. The Norwegian cruise was excellent and the food better than expected. We were quite surprised how good it was! Again, everything was just super.
