10 Day Northern Italy, Mountains & Lakes, August 2019
Our latest adventure with Gate 1 to Northern Italy and the Lakes region to celebrate out 50th anniversary was all one could expect. As this was our fourteenth trip with Gate 1, we have come to expect nothing less than an excellently planned package and we were not disappointed! From the well appointed and conveniently located hotels, the many wonderful culinary experiences we enjoyed to the unique sights and vistas along the way, nothing was lacking. Our wonderful tour guide Sonia was extraordinary in her attentiveness and desire to accommodate, enlighten and educate all participants of our tour. Already looking forward to next fall’s adventure to attend the Passion play at Oberammergau with Gate 1!

12 Day Enchanting Italy with Amalfi, August 2019
OMG, our trip was amazing. The best trip I’ve ever been on. Every detail was perfect. Everything that Gate 1 promised was delivered beyond our expectations. AND, our tour guide Johnny was the best I’ve ever had. I can’t say enough about him. He provided us with so much relevant information every step of the way, and he was extremely likable and witty and loads of fun. He definitely went above and beyond what I would expect of a tour guide. In fact, I would purchase another trip based solely on the fact that he would be my tour guide. Our entire group loved him. He made our vacation perfect, and we also had an exceptionally nice group of people on our tour. Everyone was friendly and got along, and no one was ever late or difficult. As you probably know, in every group there is usually that one person who complains about everything, but, we did not have anyone that was negative in any way. I formed some friendships that I will continue to pursue. The only bad thing is that I will truly miss the wonderful people in our tour group (40 people), but most of all Johnny our tour guide. To sum it up, Gate 1 was like a well-oiled machine. Everything worked perfectly, and you get everything that is advertised. No surprises or hidden costs. You get a high quality tour for a reasonable price. I would recommend Gate 1 to everyone.

11 Day Enchanting Italy, July 2019
Wow! Truly one of the best vacations we have ever had. Dani (tour guide) was fantastic - took special care of my 6'7" husband with seating on the bus and even put together a large table for our family and two other families since our children became fast friends, the driver Luigi lulled everyone to sleep with his excellent driving, all the guides were knowledgeable and the Gate 1 employee that met us at the airport in Naples at 4:00 a.m. was a godsend.
We got to know just about everyone (40) personally on the tour and made many new friends. Extremely pleased that there were young people on the trip - my daughter (18 years) really had a great time ... In fact, one of the girls she met is going to Boston University and will be living on the same street as my daughter who will be attending Berklee College of Music and they are just 15 minutes from one another.
We are even talking to the other families about another trip to Egypt or Spain!! Yes, this was a great trip from Gate 1 Travel.

11 Day Venice with Tuscany & Amalfi, July 2019
This Italy trip was AMAZING!!! A trip which I will cherish for my entire life. Not only did I make some new friends on the tour, but I also wanted to congratulate ViVi our guide tour for an exceptional job. We had a lot of surprises along the way, such as eating lunch at the Vatican city, tasting local espresso in Naples and all of the local recommendations which were made by her. As usual, we all wanted more time in certain areas but knew we were on a time schedule. Definitely will come back to Italy to explore!!! Our driver was exceptional and ensuring we had a good time on the bus during all of our local stops and long drive along the Amalfi Coast.
I did a lot of shopping and was very pleasantly greeted by Marianna at the airport who ensured all of my pieces of luggage were taken care of safely and sound, until my arrival back home to the US!! She was amazing!!!
I would take this trip a thousand times over, but with Vivi!!! What a phenomenal woman!!!
Can not wait for my next trip next year celebrating my 60 bday!!!
Thank you for having this trip and making sure you pick the best tour guides!!!

14 Day Romantic Italy with Amalfi, July 2019
It was wonderful! Our tour guide, Francesco was very knowledgeable and took care of everything. We had a great group of fellow travelers and enjoyed sharing our experiences with them. We learned a lot about the history of each city as well as the beautiful scenery. The food was delicious and the accommodations were good. It was very hot most of the time which was very tiring but we were still able to enjoy everything. We would definitely travel with Gate 1 again and will tell all of our friends and relatives about our experience. We really have no negative comments about the trip. Thank you for your assistance Gate 1!

This was our first Gate 1 experience and I have to say it was magnificent!! We had the best time and saw so much. Our tour guide, Vanni was an incredible tour guide. He left nothing to doubt. Everything he recommended was fantastic, his knowledge was incredible and he made the wonderful experience of our visit to Italy the trip of a lifetime. Gate 1 exceeded our expectation of a tour. As I said this was our first and it won’t be our last. I hope on our next tour to who knows where we have a guide as wonderful as Vanni.

11 Day Venice with Tuscany & Amalfi, April 2019
Again a wonderful trip with Gate 1!!!!!!!!
Beautifully organized, wonderful accommodations and meals.
Coach rides were very comfortable and I really appreciated the WIFi on the bus.
By far the most important contribution to my enjoyment was directly related to our wonderful tour guide Andrea. He conveyed his sincere love for his country, was attentive and observant of everyone’s needs throughout the tour. His sendoff to the airport at 4 am was above our expectation.
I will never travel with any other tour company than Gate 1.
Marlene B. Ontario, Canada
11 Day Affordable Italy with Sorrento, March 2019
We had a fabulous time. It was the most organized trip we have taken. Everything was on time and ran smoothly. Reno was so professional, knowledgeable and went far beyond to make sure everything went smoothly and that we were having the best experience we could have. The accommodations were good, the food was great. The planning of the itinerary was great. We had time to experience all the sites but were also given enough time in the schedules to eat, shop and experience the the culture of each city.
Howard B. Royal Oak, MI
9 Day Affordable Italy, March 2019
It was fantastic and a trip of a lifetime. Our guide, Vi, was the best. She was outgoing, knowledgeable and watched over the group like a mother hen. The local guides were great too. This was my first trip to Europe and with Gate 1, and will use only you in the future.

8 Day Affordable Italy, March 2019
Many thanks to Gate 1 Travel for a fabulous trip to Northern Italy. Our tour guide Daniella was wonderful- she was energetic, fun, and filled with lots of interesting facts about the different regions' history and culture. The tour was just the right mix of organized excursions and free time to wander and immerse yourself in the area. From the moment we got off the plane, there was no stress about making arrangements or figuring out how to get from point A to point B. I'm already looking forward to returning for a trip to Southern Italy.

This trip was a dream come true. It was more than perfect. I loved Italy, our tour director Carmine was the best tour director we could ask for. He went above and beyond to make us feel safe (dealing with food allergies) at every stop... This trip exceeded our expectations. The hotels were great, the food, the places... there are no words to describe our experience. To top it all up, our group of people was excellent!

Our trip was fantastic. We are so happy with the Gate 1 tour and tour guide. It was all wonderful. Better than we could have imagined. No complaints. Very impressed with the hotels, the meals, the itinerary, the local guides and all the hard work our Gate 1 tour guide put in. His name was Simone'. He arranged so many nice little surprises for us that were above and beyond what was expected. He was a jewel and everyone loved him. The tour eliminated so many hassles for us. We didn't have to wait in lines. All the transportation and tours were on time and we were never left feeling neglected. We can't wait to go on another tour with Gate 1.
Beth, W. Alleman, IA
9 Day Tastes of Tuscany, May 2018
Our trip to Montecatini was exceptional much due to our wonderful guide Carolyn and the spectacular Tuscany area. Carolyn was energetic, charming, knowledgeable and you could tell she loved giving the tour every single day. She always had some little extra information which personalized the tour for all. It was also a great group, many repeat Gate1 travelers and some first timers.

Maria F. Northampton, PA
10 Day Northern Italy with Venice & Tuscany, May 2018
We had a wonderful trip. I would like to compliment our guide... She also bought “treats” for us at several locations, ending with a notepad from Florence. She made the trip special. We have been on several tours with other companies, and Gate1 certainly met our expectations. The included dinner at the vineyard was beyond what any other company included in the package.
Jane J. Rye, NY
14 Day Romantic Italy with Amalfi, May 2018
Our trip was amazing. The itinerary was perfect and our tour director was wonderful. Martin is very knowledgeable, engaging, personable and so very organized. The accommodations were comfortable and ideally located to maximize our ability to explore independently. The local guides were also knowledgeable and passionate about their respective cities. It was an excellent experience. We’re looking forward to our next trip with Gate 1.
Eric W. Piscataway, NJ
10 Day Northern Italy with Venice & Tuscany, May 2018
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.
Jan B. Truckee, CA
9 Day Tastes of Tuscany, May 2018

Myranne, our main guide, was fabulous and the tour guides at each site were very well informed and made the trip worth while. Hotels, locations and food were great. We were lucky to have perfect weather, late April seemed to be a great time to go. Have told others to use Gate 1.

It was a fantastic trip. We enjoyed the Sicily visit very much. Trip was made special with our tour guide Flavia Condorelli. She made sure we were out on time to allow our bus to be the first tour at all the sites, very knowledgeable on the history of Sicily. Also need to add that the accommodations and lunches/dinners provided were outstanding. The Sicilian food was one of my highlights of the trip.

Hsiu-chin W. Lawrenceville, NJ
Cinque Terre, Parma, Bologna & Lakes, April 2018
We had a WONDERFUL trip...We were very pleased with the chance to sample local cuisine and wine. We enjoyed the smaller villages and feeling more immersed in the Italian culture. The weather was perfect, seeing the Alps every day was a real treat. Riccardo's choices of where to eat, to sample wines of the region, or try a local food specialty, was very much appreciated. We will continue to explore Gate 1 small group experiences if it continues to follow this model.
Glen B. Eugene, OR
16 Day Tuscany & Amalfi with Como, Venice & Rome, April 2018
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. Thank you for a wonderful trip & great memories!
Rich A. Dallastown, PA
10 Day Northern Italy with Venice & Tuscany, April 2018
