My trip was the greatest adventure of my life—breathtaking architecture, incredible tours (specifically because of our tour Guide Ricardo), magnificent events (Safari Desert Jeep Extravaganza, The Great Mosque in Abu Dhabi, Dubai Dinner Cruise, enchanting shopping in the Souks) — so wonderful and beautiful!! Dubai was on my bucket list, and the magical and amazing adventures surpassed my expectations!! One of the reasons my travels were so special was because of our tour guide, Ricardo. I’ve traveled extensively and Ricardo was knowledgeable, professional, courteous, kind, caring and admirable. He truly loves his profession and provided more than tour guidance, he created meaningful experiences for all of us—a special talent possessed by few guides. He deserves recognition from Gate 1! Dubai and Abu Dhabi have left an unforgettable impression of beauty, incredible technological advancement wonders, sweetness and love of the people and culture in my heart!

This was my 13th trip with Gate 1 travel, however this trip turned out to be the most informative and exceptional of all. Our guide, Waleed has so much knowledge of history that he was able to share with us and was eager to answer all questions. He kept the group engaged and involved at all levels. The restaurant and hotel selections were very good and his suggestions for restaurants and meals on our own were also superb. He also gave a briefing about Discovery Tours by Gate 1 and has aroused my interest in future plan for the discovery tour for stargazing in Wadi Rum. All and all it was great tour and I would highly recommend it to everyone interested in unique experience of floating in the Dead Sea, exploring the amazing Petra and orange sand of Wadi Rum.

We had a truly wonderful trip to Israel and Jordan. I especially wish to commend our tour guides Henry in Israel and Hazim in Jordan. They were efficient, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful to all in our party. We normally travel independently, planning our own itinerary, but in this case we were reluctant to travel to these two countries without experienced guides. We are very happy we traveled with Gate 1.

My trip was amazing. I traveled with my sister and we both enjoyed ourselves. I learned so much about this region. Mr. Attia was an excellent guide. He was organized, very knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor. He really made the trip a lot of fun. My sister and I participated in every excursion and we were so happy that we did ... The other things that I liked were the buffet style restaurants. The food was delicious, the hotels were nice and very clean. Our tour bus was very clean and comfortable and the seat rotation policy fit with the group. Also, we needed assistance from a variety of people, they were so kind and helpful. I really relaxed on this trip. My sister and I are hoping to visit Dubai again ... We saw some independent trips, but we really liked having the services of a guide. My next trip with Gate 1 is Canada. I am so excited again!

My trip to Dubai was awesome! Gigi, my tour guide, went above and beyond in showing us the beauty of the UAE. She was very attentive to all of our needs and made us feel like her own family - as a matter of fact she called the group “Gigi’s Family”. I’ve traveled with other tour companies, but this was my first experience with Gate 1. Gigi really set the bar as far as tour guides. I plan to travel with Gate 1 again and have already recommended this Dubai trip to my friends and family in hopes they get Gigi as their guide.

I wasn't sure what to expect and honestly was a little nervous to go to that part of the world. But I was pleasantly mistaken! This trip to Jordan was wonderful and such an eye-opening experience. The country is beautiful, safe and full of history. Our tour guide was exceptional! He knew so much and was a lot of fun! I'm grateful that Gate 1 created this tour and did it completely in Jordan (instead of a combo with another country). It really gives the traveler time to fully enjoy and appreciate Jordan. Yet another great trip with Gate 1! :)

My trip with my 3 girlfriends was amazing. Gate 1 you did an excellent job.. everything was done professionally and so organized. Ramy the tour guide and Sunil must be your best team members! Ramy is the best. This guy needs a medal ... so educated, kind, sociable! We loved our trip and can’t wait to find a good Greece offer with you guys for next year !

Incredible time in Dubai! Did not know how this independent trip would be since we always take guided tours. Our stay in the the Novotel was wonderful, welcoming staff, clean and pleasant facilities, amazing breakfast! We were also happy that there were a few good restaurants, markets and the metro within walking distance. The optional tours were interesting, varied, and reflected the culture of the country. So glad to have booked all of them! The guides were punctual and professional. Needless to say each time we travel with Gate 1 proves to be an adventure. Interesting to note that we went with another couple we met on previous Gate 1 tour. Have recommended Gate 1 to many friends and family. Looking forward to Japan in April.

Dear Maria, Our Tour of Dubai was amazing, covering so many places and experiences. The Tour Leader, Kris, was informative, entertaining, and willing to extend herself to cover everyone's needs. We will be recommending Gate1 Travel to all of our friends.

Had a wonderful time. It was hard to believe that 20 years ago; Dubai was a desert. All the buildings were above my expectations. The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi is something to behold. Both hotels were beautiful and our guide Attia was fantastic and went into great detail everywhere we went.

My trip was phenomenal, amazing, mind blowing and spectacular...As it being my first time traveling with gate 1 travel I must say my expectations were beyond met plus more. Gate 1 travel took care of literally "everything" and it made for the traveler to do what is most important enjoy the trip...Our tour guide Chris was amazing she is very good at her job and made for a fun trip. Was very informative on the history of UAE. Our bus driver was so kind and punctual such a kind hearted individual. Upon arrival Sunil was so courteous, accommodating and thoughtful I never expected to be welcomed with such kindness. I wont lie when I first booked with gate 1 travel I was soooo skeptical but a few days during the trip I was already searching for my next adventure. I always wanted to travel for a living and although that dream is far and wide I can somewhat live it out through gate 1 services...I definitely will be taking another trip with gate 1 again once I save up enough but until then I will let my imagination take me on a adventure.

I LOVED it!!! The tour guide was incredibly informative and it’s an absolutely fascinating place to visit. My first trip with Gate1 but it won’t be my last. And thanks to you and all the others at Gate1 who do such a great job taking care of the logistics, arrangements, communications with the customer, etc.

Our trip to Dubai was by far the most amazing trip I have ever taken! We were both absolutely fascinated by the country, the architecture and the history. Everything went so smoothly from the moment we landed to the day we left. The hotels were beautiful, the food was amazing and there are not enough accolades for our guide, Attyia. His knowledge of the area was absolutely mind-boggling. He had an answer to every question asked (and there were plenty!) and kept everything perfectly on schedule. Everyone agreed he was the best guide any of us have ever had. Since returning I have told so many people about this tour and many who had no desire to visit there are now planning on going next year. I may ever consider going again! Once again, Gate 1 lived up to our expectations and more. Can't wait to do another trip!

It was the trip of a lifetime! I tried to post a review but could not find it on the site. Our guide Attia was so knowledgeable, explaining culture and religion, and the history of the region. We feel like we were immersed in a college course! The tours covered so many interesting sites every day. We so enjoyed 2 optional tours especially the dessert excursion, an experience not to be missed. We loved Dubai, until we got to Abu Dhabi, which we loved even more! Thank you from all of us,

We enjoyed the trip very much, and thought that it was an excellent value. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are beautiful cities, and it was fascinating learning about the cities, their history, and the Emerati culture from our guide GiGi. This was the first time that we've traveled with Gate 1 and everything was well done and handled perfectly, in fact we've already recommended Gate 1 to others friends, and one of the couples just booked a river cruise with Gate 1.

My trip to Dubai went of without a hitch. Wonderful trip with beautiful people at a reasonable price - from Emirates Airline and food, to Hilton Garden Inn (Al Muraqabat) and staff, to the tours and tour guides, and the other tourists! No complains whatsoever. I will certainly continue to travel with Gate 1 Travel. Thanks again Gate 1 Travel!!

The trip was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Dubai and Abu Dhabi were very nice and the Guide was extremely positive and enthusiastic. I loved Jordan, the Guide was witty and interesting, the hotels were all impressive, the service was impeccable at all three Marriotts, though Amman and the Dead Sea were especially good and I loved the historical and biblical aspects of Jordan. As has been my experience, Gate 1 came through in flying colors.

Our trip was absolutely wonderful! Jordan completely exceeded our expectations - we went for Petra and the Dead Sea but little did we know the profundity of history in Jordan. Our guide, Waleed, was so incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about his country. We learned so much, experienced so much, and just felt like it was a trip of a lifetime. Ate 1 always does a nice job. Organized and professional.feels like a dream now.
