We had a wonderful trip to Mexico. We have taken about 10 Gate 1 tours and liked them all. Our tour manager, Douglas, made this trip special. He is knowledgeable and careful with details to make sure that all of us were pleased. He has a great personality and went out of his way to get to know all of us on the tour, providing us with little extras to make us feel welcome and valued. I can't say enough to praise Douglas. He is a real asset to Gate 1, which he praises regularly, telling us about his training and how Gate 1 goes to great lengths to make sure the meals and accommodations are the best possible. I want to mention Panchito, our bus driver, also. He is a cheerful person and a highly skilled bus driver. We were all impressed by how he was able to maneuver the bus in tight quarters and keep us all safe.

9 Day Colonial Mexico, December 2018
Dummy Image

Colonial Mexico was my 31st trip with Gate 1 and I always love it when a trip exceeds expectations in every way, as this one did! I knew little about Mexico outside of a visit to Cancun and Mexico City, and this exploration of its Colonial Cities was marvelous. Everything started with having a superb tour manager, Bacho, who was personable, extremely kind, knowledgeable, funny and so organized. He was always there for us, whether it be having Pesos for bathroom stops or treating us to candy or prizes for quizzes, and even organizing a special double decker bus tour of Guadalajara, plus so much else - he is one of the very best! Our driver Aurelio was also skilled and safe and very pleasant. The itinerary was perfectly timed, with the right balance between time spent on walking tours of the cities and free time to explore. The hotels were all really lovely and well situated. The restaurants we went to for group meals were uniformly excellent. The dinner at the #1 restaurant in Morelia - San Miguelito was fantastic, as was the farewell dinner at El Sacromonte in Guadalajara. My personal favorite cities were the stops in Queretaro and Guanajuato and favorite city that we stayed in Morelia - I loved it so much that I am looking at spending a week at a language school there later this year! Can't say enough good things about this trip - safe, fun, interesting, cultural and very highly recommended. Thank you again!

The trip to the Copper Canyon was wonderful. The trip by bus showed us an extensive area of Sonora and Chihuahua. The vast canyon was beautiful to see in the varying light from morning to evening. The train ride from El Fuerte to Posada Barrancas was spectacular with the mountains and changing vegetation as we climbed higher. Douglas was an excellent tour leader. On the long bus rides, he told us about the economies of the states, the history of the areas and the history of Mexico ..... He kept us informed about the daily schedules and helped to make sure that everyone was having a good time.
