As a first time Gate 1 traveler I am extremely satisfied with the entire trip. There were 49 wonderful people in our group. I was the only solo traveler but had no trouble fitting in immediately. Our guide, Daniel, was simply the best guide ever! He called us Family and treated us as such. The local tour guides were terrific. Truthfully, I’ve never had a better art museum tour than the one at the Prada. I can’t remember his name but he was so passionate about explaining the art work. He did the same at the castle. Our group was exceptionally cooperative and considerate of each other - never a late person! We set up an e mail list that I volunteered to type up and we’ve already shared pic. I’ve already recommended Gate 1 to my friends.

The guides at each site were also very good. Especially Jose??? who took us through the Prado museum in Madrid; his passion for the art was effusive. Our driver Juan was very good, always had the bus under control and was very skilled at negotiating narrow ramps and streets. The hotel selections were also very good, putting us near the most active city areas for good walking access. The provided meals were excellent. The itinerary was a bit rushed at times but I think that it had to be to cover seven cities in nine days on the ground.

We had a great trip. Our tour guide, Carmen, did an EXCELLENT job. She gave us so much information about the history, surroundings, sights, and Spain in general. She has a great sense of humor also. All of the local guides were very good and well informed also (especially Jose' in Madrid and Toledo). We were able to see many cities that were individually unique. We will definitely recommend Gate 1 to family and friends.

It was wonderful! I am very pleased with virtually all aspects of my trip. Our tour guides were amazing - so well-informed and friendly. I was especially impressed by Daniel, our main tour guide. I can't begin to tell you how terrific he was - he created a friendly atmosphere and made all of us feel as though we were family. If all of your tour guides are this great, I can't wait until my next tour! I have mentioned Gate 1 Travel to several friends - I hope they take advantage of all that you have to offer. Thank you for providing me with a terrific experience!

Our trip was spectacular! We saw so many beautiful sights and the tour guide and local guides were fantastic—so knowledgeable. It was great to have the hotel, transportation and itinerary taken care of so all we had to do was show up and enjoy. It was also a good mix of planned touring and free time so we could do some exploring on our own. We look forward to traveling with Gate 1 again.

This was not only our first time using Gate 1, it was also our first time traveling outside of the USA. Because of our experience, we are already talking about planning our next trip with Gate 1. Thank you so much!

The trip was amazing value. Truly, we can't figure out the math to understand how you can offer such a trip for that cost. The hotel was very nice, in an excellent location and we all had a wonderful time. We will be on Gate 1 again in May and have converted our friends as well.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS.!!! Have already recommended Gate 1 to several friends. Our tour manager, Lisa was extremely gracious . Every tour guide we encountered was knowledgeable & enthusiastic. In fact my husbands' eyes rolled in the back of his head when he heard we were going to the PRADO. But Jose dissected the paintings to the point that my husband came out of there with an enlightenment about art.

Out trip was wonderful. We saw and experienced so much thanks to our Gate 1 tour guide Caesar. Everyday was planned so that we wouldn't miss a thing worth seeing in Spain and Portugal. The only thing we had to worry about each day was getting to the bus on time and being ready to go. Gate 1's tours allow you to feel safe yet adventurous. We really appreciated the knowledge and experience of the local tour guides. We can't say enough about Caesar. He's was so nice, knowledgeable and worked so hard each day to make our trip the best.
