10 Day Copper Canyon: Mexico & Tucson, February 2020
Dummy Image

This trip was so breathtaking that I don't know where to begin. It was a wonderful experience and a lot of surprises in seeing SW & E of Mexico. I cannot stop talking about it. I didn't expect the this part of Mexico to be so LOVELY. We especially enjoy the train ride, the Copper Canyon, the cow pastures, not to mention the food, entertainment and the people, we love this trip. Our tour Manager Raul makes us feel safe & comfortable: not to mention his professionalism. He is one of the hardest working tour manager I ever came across in my 35 years of travelling. His working ethics are endless.

9 Day Colonial Mexico, February 2020

Our trip to Mexico City and Colonial Mexico tour was very good! Ivan, our tour director was amazing and one of the best we've had on our guided tour travels. He was knowledgeable, accommodating, organized and communicated very well. Leading a group of 40 individuals is no small feat but he pulled it off well! He went out of his way to make everybody feel comfortable and respected as individuals. The tour itself was well organized and we had the opportunity to visit many places and experience good dining. I liked that there was plenty of 'time on our own' and the option to eat on our own while providing a good amount of preplanned and prepaid food. The restaurants we ate as a group provided decent food with options to choose. The hotels we stayed at were pretty well located in the key parts of the city. We could walk in a safe environment to visit on our own and find alternate dining options. The pace of the tour was good and we had the opportunity to see a lot. The optional excursion, which we took part in, was very good and definitely added some good flavor to the trip which we otherwise wouldn't have experienced. This was a our first trip with Gate 1 and it likely won't be our last.

We had a wonderful time on the tour of The Copper Canyon. It was everything that we had hoped that it would be. The accommodations were top rate, the meals were good and we were pleased that almost all of the meals for the entire nine days were included, as well as all the tours, train ride and arial tram ride over the canyon. Our tour guide, Raul, was absolutely the best, so knowledgeable and personable. He went out of his way to make sure that we had a safe and enjoyable trip. The visit to a Taramasalata home was a highlight of the trip.

My trip to Copper Canyon was wonderful. The bus ride was so scenic and Copper Canyon and San Carlos were just magical. I never imagined that Mexico was so beautiful. Our guide, Manuel, made the trip so special. He kept us informed about everything and taught us so much about the floral and fauna of Mexico. The train ride and the cable car ride into the canyon was the icing on the cake for this trip. The memories from this trip will be with me for a long time. Thank you Gate 1 for this special experience.

Our trip to Mexico and Copper Canyon was wonderful. Edel was a fabulous guide who is incredibly knowledgeable about everything we saw and did. He is a great tour manager who took care of all our needs seamlessly and way exceeded my expectations. I always felt secure with him in charge. This was the 4th Gate 1 trip for my husband and I, and we plan to take many more in the future.

10 Day Copper Canyon: Mexico & Tucson, September 2019
Dummy Image

There are two things that make for a great trip beyond the itinerary: the weather and the tour manager. We were blessed with great weather but the greatest contribution was our manager, Edel. We have taken guided small-group trips with various companies over the years, with this trip being our second with Gate 1. All have been grand experiences, but this one stands out. Edel is the most personable, knowledgeable, caring person we have encountered. At every turn of the road, we would be introduced to local people, who were friends of Edel. This lead to experiences with indigenous people and facets of the varied Mexican cultures we may well have not otherwise experienced. Edel was totally organized throughout the tour, so his clients had no concerns but to soak in all the wonderful sensory inputs. We all left with gratitude, new understandings, and not a small sense of loss in leaving our new friend behind. We cannot say enough positive comments about Edel and Gate 1.

Our trip of the National Parks was phenomenal!! The sites were incredible and we wouldn’t have been able to see it all if we did not have an incredible driver. Taking a coach was the best decision as it allowed us to rest, view the landscape and interact. Our tour guide did a wonderful job of making sure we were informed.

My trip to Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park and Grand Tetons was great! Gigi, our tour manager was wonderful! She was very organized and made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. She provided excellent commentary and reference materials during the long bus rides. She cared about the comfort and well-being of the entire group. Being a former teacher, Gigi clearly states her expectations and does not sugar coat her words. She has a great sense of humor too! She played very appropriate music during our bus drives, which made the trips even more relaxing and enjoyable. Towards the end of the trip, on our way to Salt Lake City, she made a surprise stop for lunch at Bear Lake, Utah and recommended the Raspberry milkshake, which was absolutely awesome! I am looking forward to taking my younger daughter on this trip in the future and hope to have Gigi again as our tour manager! Thank you Gigi!! You’re awesome!!

Our trip was really great! The accommodations were lovely, and the train ride was a wonderful way to see Alaska. Our tour guide did a terrific job, and we really enjoyed ourselves! We took lots of photos, were well fed, and met lots of nice people. I think my husband’s favorite piece of the trip was that train ride to Denali!! The cruise was also a great way to travel. Our staterooms were very very nice, especially the balcony for viewing glaciers. All of our excursions were very well done, and each of the towns in Alaska had plenty to offer ... We feel we got great value for the money spent on all aspects of our trip. And Gate 1 really delivered on a most enjoyable adventure! Thank you for all your assistance to us. We look forward to our next trip with your help!

In one word, I will say, “AWESOME “ Words cannot describe the places we’ve been to, e.g., Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, etc. Even a professional photographer can’t capture the beauty of the sites. You just have to enjoy them while you’re there. Camaraderie between the group was great— seemed like we’ve known each other for a while. Accommodations were very nice. Kudos for both Muriel (Tour Guide) and the driver — for a “Job Well Done.” Hope to have the same experience again, the next time around with Gate 1.

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.

Our trip was wonderful and our tour guide, Ashley, was the absolute best!! We've been on many tours, not only with Gate 1, and Ashley was the best tour director we've ever encountered. Competent, personable, friendly, courteous, organized, helpful, and knowledgeable. She was always willing to go the extra mile for each of us. I will actually miss her very much!! She made each one of us feel extremely important. Thank you, Ashley, and thank you, Gate 1!! We'll be back! :)

The trip was wonderful. We were so fortunate to have Raul, the perfect guide! He obviously was so pleased to know we were enjoying ourselves, and we could totally depend on him to look after us. Very sincere, so knowledgeable. I’ve been to Mexico many times, but this was the first time I experienced the range of socioeconomic citizens and learned so much about the history of the country.
