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.

The trip was great. Our tour guide Josep Tio Pares was EXCELLENT. His attention to detail was wonderful. His willingness to go the extra mile to make our trip enjoyable was extraordinary. He even gave up his personal time off to lead us on non-tour adventures. An absolute pleasure to tour with him! Overall my experience with your company was excellent. I definitely will be traveling with Gate 1 Travel in the future.
