As usual, Gate 1 did an amazing job. The hotels were all very good, especially the gorgeous one in Madrid. Our guide, Armand, was fantastic. The love of his country of Spain came shining thru in all the insight and enthusiasm that he shared with us. He was very knowledgeable and since I love to learn, he did his job well. In a short 11 day trip we were able to see the highlights of each of the cities. I lost my jacket on the first day and he was able to track it down and have it shipped to our last hotel in Barcelona. His customer service was amazing. I have taken several Gate 1 Tours and I will continue to do so, as it is an excellent value and lots of fun too.

Our trip went very well and we were impressed with our first experience of using Gate 1. We had a great group of people to travel with and our Tour Director Roberta and Driver Miguel contributed much to the success of our holiday. Thanks for your interest and the assistance you gave us to start with.

Gate 1 is continuing to excel! We have (again) enjoyed a wonderful tour with you. Fantastic itinerary, lovely hotels, the best and most knowledgeable Tour Manager (Jose) and a very capable driver (Florentino). Every day brought new and amazing experiences and it just kept getting better! ... Spain and Portugal are beautiful countries with a wealth of history, incredible sights, lovely people and great food. Thank you again, Gate 1 Travel.

Our trip was great! Spain and Portugal were beautiful, much more than I expected, and truly two of the cleanest countries I've ever seen and we travel a lot. I can't say enough about our tour guide, Roberto. He was excellent! ... He would always give us suggestions on things to see and do and eat ... Overall, it was a wonderful trip and Gate 1 did not disappoint in any aspect.

It’s one of the best trips that we had with Gate 1 both fun and entertaining but also educational. We learned so much on history culture people and food of Portugal and Spain. Our guide Jose was wonderful and so were local guides.

Great trip from beginning to end! Beautiful scenery and interesting historical sites along with informative and entertaining guides made for an enjoyable experience. Great hotels and service. Ugo made it look easy driving the bus through some of the narrower streets. What can we say Jose is a traveler's dream - as Tour Director he looked after everything. Everything done with class! Would definitely book with Gate 1 again!

We very much enjoyed the trip to Spain. The tour was very well organized. In a relatively short time we have seen many historic sites and and had a wonderful culinary experience with local food and wines. Special thanks to our tour manager Roberto who was with us during this wonderful trip and who took a good care on every member of the group.

Our trip was amazing. Our tour guide Roberto was the best. He was very knowledgeable and anything we needed he was very helpful. I would recommend this tour guide to anyone. The restaurants were outstanding and all of the hotels were great. We are going to plan an Italy vacation in September of 2019 and will definitely be using Gate 1

Always making sure that our group was well taken care of whether we were out sightseeing or checking in at the hotels.
