This was one of my favorite Gate 1 trips. My daughter, Allison and I both really enjoyed ourselves. Our tour director, Rosanna was fantastic. We had a large group, and she handled it very well. Everyone was on time . That speaks for itself. Rosanna was knowledgeable and helpful, funny, polite, and always ready to help. She is one of the best ! The hotels we stayed at were beautiful. Also, they were centrally located , which made our lives much easier for exploring on our own. Our local tour guides, Pablo and Gisella were also very good. Great personalities and fun to be with. I loved visiting the school. I think it is wonderful that Gate 1 donates money to those less fortunate. I have nothing bad to say. Thank you Gate 1, thank you Rosanna for a memorable vacation.

We would like to thank you for a fabulous trip to Argentina, Chile and Easter Island. Everything went according to plan, hotels were great, we loved all 3 of them, the offered excursions (we took the one to Valparaiso and Viña del Mar and the sunrise over the Moai) were awesome and our tour guides were great. We would like to commend Veni, Nelson and Lili for their outstanding support and assistance. The tidbits of information they offered on the respective countries was well researched, good and helpful information regarding customs, history, politics, any topic we had a question about was answered. The professional and caring guides and their drivers were available when stated, the airport pickups were timely and I especially wanted to mention Nelson who was the one to pick us back up from when we landed from Rapa Nui back in Santiago and he made sure we all knew about our onward travel arrangements. Veni came to see us off on the morning of departure to Rapa Nui and Lili at Rapa Nui was full of anecdotes and I understand she also participates in local dances which were very well received by the participants who went to the event. In all, it was another successful Gate 1 tour and we will look forward to book with you in the future. Please extend our thanks again to the great guides we had, our group to Easter Island was small and we will stay in touch which is an added bonus of making new friends who share the love of travel.

The SA trip was busy but great. We are amazed at how much we saw in two weeks. The Delta Comfort Plus seats were worth every penny. I knew about the famous SA cities but the spectacular natural sights of Chile and Argentina Andes / lake districts and the Iguazu falls were a huge surprise. We had amazingly good weather in these normally rainy areas. Our guides were first rate particularly Jorge, our tour director. Jorge took care of everyone individually ... We have done mostly DIY touring in the past but we could not have planned and maneuvered such a complex and complete tour on our own without a lot of uncertainty, discomfort, and risk. So far we are big Gate 1 fans.

We had a great trip, and Rapa Nui (Easter Island) was the highlight. Silvia was our tour manager, and she did a super job; not only organizing and arranging our activities, but also because she was very knowledgeable about restaurants and available services wherever we were. And Gino, our guide on Rapa Nui, was so good at painting a picture of the way things were that we could almost see the Moai being moved to their places on the island. And, thanks to Silvia, we were able to see the sunrise through the Moai on our final day.

Our trip was terrific, we enjoyed it tremendously and already recommended your agency to our family members and friends. I would like to mention the outstanding performance of our guide on the trip - Albano Garibaldi. This gentleman was a fantastic leader to our group, knowledgeable, likable, efficient, helpful, and funny. He is a great asset to your organization. Hopefully, we'll meet him again on a future trip.

We are very pleased. It was an expectacular trip and the memories wil be with us for a long time. We will like to commend your Colombian Tour guide Diego. He was instrumental on the well-being of everyone on our tour. The only thing we can complain about, it the fact that time flew by so fast. We are looking forward to traveling again with you in the future.

The trip was better than what I was expecting. I thought much of the tour was on our own, but turns out, it was escorted most of the time. I got to see the highlights of Colombia and I am impressed of what I saw. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for an experience in South America.

Our guide, Andreas was so helpful and informative. He did a great job with the group. All the local guides and drivers were also very good. This was the best group tour I have ever been on.
