Our trip was fantastic!! Made memories for a lifetime!! This was our second Gate 1 trip and it did not disappoint. One of our fellow travelers said “Thank goodness, now we are in Gate 1’s hands” once we were in the bus after meeting the arrival rep at the airport. I felt the same way. We knew everything would be taken care of. Niko, our tour guide was fantastic!!! He was so engaging, knowledgeable and excited to share his country with us. It was well thought out and organized. He encouraged us to explore and even some provided some special treats from the local regions. It was the perfect touch. Our bus drivers, we also amazing. We will definitely be going on another Gate 1 adventure!!! Thank you so much for the memories... and keeping us safe and sound.

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.

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.

We had a great time overall but especially enjoyed the Portugal part. Our tour guides Americo and Catia were very helpful and enjoyable to be with.

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.

Driver was cautious and courtesy and very helpful as well. GATE 1 is certainly NUMBER ONE!! Looking forward to more adventures with Gate 1

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

We had a great trip enjoying the many cities in our tour. Spain was beautiful and learned so much history. Palaces, churches and museums were amazing. Our tour guide Carmen Martin was the best!!
