14 Day Classic England & Scotland, October 2018
Our trip was fabulous! Our tour managers were informative, interesting and so much fun. They were helpful in every way! A special thank you to delightful Liz and Paul. We met many wonderful people who we hated saying goodbye to and hope we met again. The special tour guides were amazingly well informed and personable. Their passion and love for their cities was contagious.
The trip was well planned and every place we toured was interesting and special. The additional extra tours and dinners were little jewels, not to be missed.
We will definitely use Gate 1 to plan our next vacation and have recommended it to our friends.
Thank you for giving us such wonderful memories.

10 Day Classic England & Scotland, October 2018
The trip was terrific. Our tour guide for the week, Elaine was excellent ... She kept us on point, on time and entertained, always with a smile and funny antidotes. Our bus driver David was also excellent, keeping us safe and on time. Each local guide was terrific. This was our 5th tour with Gate 1 and I am sure there will be others. Thanks for a wonderful trip!

16 Day Scotland & Ireland, July 2018
Scotland and Ireland trip was more than we expected! We were told by locals that the weather we experienced was the best that they have had in the past five years! We never had to use umbrellas or ponchos. Accommodations were outstanding, food was interesting and surprisingly good, specials were fun and interesting, sights and excursions were interesting, fun, and educational. So many memorable moments. The "Queen" was even at Holyrood Palace while we were in Edinburgh ... Lots of wonderful memories between the beginning of our trip and the close of our trip in Dublin - where we had the opportunity to view the books of Kells of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John ... It was the most congenial group of people I have ever traveled with on any of my trips! Many of us will stay in touch with each other. Our tour guide, Patrick, and our bus driver, Jim, were outstanding...friendly, knowledgeable, funny, caring, lovable. Davis and I will miss them!

17 Day England, Scotland & Ireland, June 2018
It was wonderful and packed with charming surprises like Scotch tastings, tea with clotted cream and scones, and morning Irish coffees! It was informative, interesting, and full of an excellent variety of history, culture, beautiful landscapes, and fun! Both of our tour managers were great and we came home with lots of “Christina-isms” and “Cecilia-isms”. And both tour managers took good care of us including box breakfasts on the two days we had to be at the airport early. We also appreciated recommendations on pubs and restaurants such as the Dirty Duck in Bath or the Bracin in Waterford! We plan on traveling again with Gate 1 Travel.

16 Day Scotland & Ireland, June 2018
We could'nt have asked for a better vacation. Our trip was so wonderful. We enjoyed Scotland and throughly loved Ireland. Our tour guide Francis Carroll, was so informative, educational and such a delight to be with. He made our trip so pleasurable. Our bus driver Brian was a joy too. He skillfully skirted around tight squeezes without a hiccup. Our excursions was great and so were the local tour guides especially Ronin. He gave us a lot of insight of the local area, and made .you want to hear more. A great tutor! We will certainly choose Gate 1 travel again. You made our "go to" list of agencies to use. You will be hearing from us soon.

11 Day Kaleidoscope of Scotland, May 2018

14 Day England, Scotland & Ireland, May 2018
Had a very nice time and saw a lot! The group of people on the trip were all so friendly and fun ~ it made traveling together great. Our guide was also very helpful. My favorites: The Titanic Museum in Belfast: York: and the sheep farm in Westport. Dublin was too crowded for my taste ~ the viewing of the Book of Kells was almost impossible due to the large crowds.
Elaine T. Seville, OH
10 Day Classic England & Scotland, May 2018
The trip was wonderful. We had a great time. Our tour guide, David Reid could not have done a better job. He made our journey very enjoyable. When things went a bit awry, such as a bus breakdown, he kept us all in good humor and did his best to make sure we didn’t miss any of the activities that had been planned. Our bus driver, David, was a true professional. The various local guides did a great job too. Overall, the trip was everything we hoped it would be and more
Barbara L. Longmeadow, MA
8 Day Classic England & Scotland, May 2018
We had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect. Our tour guide Philip was excellent and the day guides as well. The whisper boxes are an awesome way to communicate. I did not have to keep up fully to hear what was being said. We thoroughly enjoyed all of our destinations especially Edinburgh. All of our overnight commendations were fine and the meals were wonderful. I'm sure we'll be doing other trips with Gate 1 in the future.

14 Day England, Scotland & Ireland, April 2018

Christopher M. Bryn Mawr, PA
10 Day Classic Scotland, May 2017
Like all Gate 1 trips, the 10 day Classic Tour of Scotland was wonderful. We saw so much of the country and had free time to interact with the Scottish people in restaurants, pubs, on public buses, etc. We enjoyed the rich history and historic places like Culloden that really opens one's eyes and heart. The scenery was breathtaking. Our tour guide Michael offered us so much information and provided us with Scottish treats and beautiful ballads on the bus trips. He was calm, caring and made us laugh. Kenny our bus driver was also kind and a great driver on those narrow roads. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
Diana C. Bristol, VA
10 Day Classic England & Scotland, May 2017
The England/Scotland trip was amazing! My entire family had an absolutely incredible time on the trip! And we all appreciated how well the entire tour was managed, from airport transfers to comfortable hotels located within walking distance of city highlights and great tour guides who provided excellent recommendations on things to do and eat. There was also a good balance of leisure time in London and Edinburgh to explore on our own, during which time we went to afternoon tea, spent some more time at Buckingham Palace, and checked out the Sherlock Holmes museum.
Thank you so much for your help coordinating our family trip from different cities - it was a really special adventure together thanks to Gate 1!
Jennifer Y. Boston, MA
16 Day Scotland & Ireland, April 2017
The trip was fantastic. This is the first time we've used Gate 1, but it
won't be the last. Our guide, Patrick was amazing. He made it seem
like he wasn't even working, yet managed to keep everything running very
smoothly. He did it all with professionalism and courtesy. Our driver,
Brian was not only a great driver, but a hard worker who managed our luggage
with ease. The seat assignments on the bus worked out very well. I thought
I wasn't going to like it, but it was actually very efficient.
Margaret A. West Islip, NY
14 Day Classic England & Scotland, April 2017
We had a magnificent trip. The weather was great - no rain for two weeks in England and Scotland. We had two fabulous guides, Ann in England and Phil in Scotland. Both were super people who went out of their way to make our trip a success. They filled our days with knowledge and humorous stories that we will carry with us. Our drivers were also great. This was our third trip with Gate 1 and we are looking forward to our next one.

It was a wonderful trip, thanks! We had a decent hotel in a good area that was close to the tube, and we explored the city in so many ways! The day trip to Windsor was beautiful, and the tour guide, Kevin, was FABULOUS!
London is a wonderful place, and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring it. With Gate 1 doing all the "heavy work" of hotels and tickets, it was even more enjoyable. THANK YOU! Looking forward to traveling again with you!

8 Day London & Paris , October 2016
The trip was more than amazing. My family and I had soooo much fun it is hard to put into words. We truly enjoyed everything the Gate 1 package included. The Airport to Hotel transfers were the best and made it easy for us to travel. We signed up for a tour while in London to Windsor, Stonehenge, and Bath that truly made it memorable. Paris was all that we expected and more. My parents celebrated their wedding anniversary at the Eiffel Tower :) Thank you for your support in setting up this wonderful trip. I will be sure to use Gate 1 Travel again and again and again.

us to our destinations without mishap.
Michael H. Saint Louis, MO
10 Day Classic Scotland, October 2016
Our trip was AWESOME!!! Our tour guide Lauren was the best, full of interesting information all day long on the bus. There wasn't a single glitch, from flights to transfers to hotels. It helped that our fellow travelers were a congenial group too. The hotels were fine, lack of wi-fi in some rooms was a pain, but they all had wi-fi in the public areas. I think the tour and optional tours hit all the places we wanted to see. We wouldn't change a thing about the trip...thanks for a memorable vacation!!! We will definitely be on another Gate 1 trip...
Allyn C. Manlius, NY
10 Day Classic Scotland, October 2016
It was awesome. We had a great group and an EXCELLENT tour guide in Lorna. She was the best. Very knowledgeable and professional. As a native to the area she gave us valuable information that helped us get the most of our time in Scotland.
The bus was comfortable and Willy our driver was the best. The hotels were clean and comfortable. We had a great trip

Scott P. Goleta, CA
15 Day Ireland, England & Scotland, July 2016
Our trip was incredible! Evelyn, our tour manager in Ireland and Michael, our tour guide in Great Britain and Scotland did an excellent job. They both made sure we were comfortable, safe, and informed of all of the rich history of the cities we visited. The two of them are very knowledgable and shared all the information in a friendly and charming way. The accommodations and the pace of the trip were excellent. Our driver Les in Great Britain and Scotland made our trip safe and relaxed. He was always very helpful and had a great sense of humor. This is our 4th Gate 1 trip and each trip keeps getting better because of the dedicated people that work for your company.
Estella R. Helotes, TX
16 Day Scotland & Ireland, June 2016
Scotland and Ireland were amazing. I tried Haggis as promised and it wasn't bad, although I didn't take seconds when Terri offered. Your advice about the add ons/excursions and currency was helpful. Thanks for answering all of my questions. The tour was top notch and I will travel with Gate 1 again.
Jacqueline P. Boise, ID
10 Day Classic England & Scotland, May 2016
The trip was fantastic! I want to tell you that Gate 1 is extremely well run - very well organized, and with excellent staff. Our Tour Guide, Paul, was outstanding - kind, informative, funny and all round a terrific person. Our coach driver was also outstanding - a great chauffeur (getting us out of a couple of traffic blockages very skillfully) and he also was very kind - nice guy! The tours were great and we had enough flexibility to adjust our own pacing. In short - A-OK! And even our flights went well and the connections to and from Heathrow were fine. Not a single "hitch!"
Eve V. Foster City, CA
10 Day Classic Scotland, April 2016
What a wonder trip...the best one that I have done with Gate 1...( and i done a few )
My guide Michael Wheeler...made the trip...I cannot say enough...Cute...smart..witty..a real joy to travel with..we only had 23 travelers and Michael along with Willy the bus driver...nice guy wore Kilts one night..
it rained almost every day...but Michael took very good care of us..his knowledge of Scotland's history and the way he presented it was unbelievable..I could now pass any college course on early Scottish History...LOL
Any future trips I do to Great Britain will only be with Michael as my guide...so if let me know.
I gave your name out to some first time gate 1 travelers ....told them your the one I use.
We took a group picture at our departing dinner I will attempt to attach it.
Saralyn B. Chilcoot, CA
16 Day Scotland & Ireland, April 2016
Simply the best! We were told that this the first time for this combination tour with a different selection of
sights. It was led by Eric with a few other local guides.The tour was flawless in every respect.
We would highly recommend to our friends.
Ronald D. Georgetown, TX
10 Day Classic England & Scotland, April 2016
Trip was great!
London was crowded then I expected, more then New York.
The country side was beautiful and Edinburg was pretty and intimate.
The tour guide Ann was meticulous for every single detail and very professional.
My wife and I enjoyed every minute of it.
This was our 2nd trip with Gate 1. We went to Central Europe last year. It was a great
experience too. Thank you for doing a good job. Please, keep doing it. Thanks.
Hee K. Chicago, IL
10 Day Affordable England & Scotland, March 2016
It was a great trip in that we were able to see everything promised on the itinerary. There was a visit to a farm in the Lake area, where we were served scones and clotted cream, which was a real treat.
Downside was the weather. Pretty much rainy, windy, and cool, the entire trip. Not much anyone can do about that, weather is always an uncontrollable variable.
Perhaps the most fortunate aspect of the trip was having Michael Wheeler as our tour guide (along with his faithful companion and bus driver, Les!) Michael has an incredible amount of area knowledge, which he shares in an interesting and understandable way. He has a great sense of humor, and some of his stories and comments were laugh out loud funny. Actually, one of the most entertaining part of the trip were when they had to decide on a quick detour to avoid a long wait at an accident, south of York. The rapport between Michael and Les, was great fun!
This type of tour can be challenging to the traveler, in that you have to get packed and moving early each morning, and often the bus arrives at the hotel late in the afternoon, between 5-5:30 PM. Makes for a long day. Michael was at the bus early every morning, and had everything well prepared, including a daily seating chart. He made sure hotel keys/rooms, were ready as soon as we got off the bus each day. He stayed around the hotel lobby each day, for at least an hour after arrival, in case of any problems for anyone. He is really a hard worker, and the nicest guy you could ever find. A real credit to Gate 1.
