This was a fantastic trip and we highly recommend it. It was well organized and the guide David, as well as the driver Edwin were wonderful. We felt welcome from the time we landed in Cartagena. The trip on the canoe through the mangroves was amazing. The night ride on the horse driven carriage was very classy and romantic. We loved the restaurant that was picked. Gate 1 needs to publicize this trip to Cartagena more. People do not know what they are missing. The whole trip was done very professionally. Gate 1, you are the best!!

The trip was outstanding for me and my travel partner, Jeffery Stroud. The other people in this group were all friendly and outgoing personalities. I cannot applaud our in-country guide Karen, with enough accolades. She was always available, knowledgeable and cheerful. The flight home was very turbulent but we survived. Thanks also, to Gate 1 for sponsoring such a wonderful trip. Looking forward to booking the next experience.
