Our "family vacation" to Greece was fantastic and I want to thank Gate 1 Travel for the excellent service. Although we opted for an independent package we had the support of Gate 1 during all of the transfers and other optional sightseeing packages. We were greeted at each location by the Gate 1 representative and they made sure we made it to our hotels and got on the proper ferry to both Mykonos and Athens. We will definitely consider Gate 1 for our future travel plans!

We had a wonderful time. Our trip through Greece was sensational and we were very happy with the choice of hotels and restaurants– the food and wine were so delicious. The Gate 1 Guide, Millitsa, was excellent and she kept us informed and helped us have the most informative and entertaining time. There were only 14 of us on the trip and we all got along very well (only us from Australia and the others from US). This was our third Gate 1 trip this year and we very much appreciate the standard of service which Gate 1 provides.

Aaaaamazing! The hotels were good, especially the Callirhoe in Athens. The location was perfect and that view in the restaurant!!! We loved our guide Helena. She is so very knowledgeable and really brings the history to life!!! What a surprise to have Panos as a guide during the cruise portion. Gate 1 is really savvy to have a cruise director. This was our first large ship cruise. Panos organization and advice about the excursions, getting on/off at ports of call, and general helpfulness made it so much more maneuverable! Thank you tons and more for helping us with the reservations Gate 1. We will be contacting you soon to plan a new adventure!

We had a wonderful time in Greece! Sandra (our tour guide), along with Nick (our bus driver) made the trip run smoothly. Sandra was very welcoming and knowledgeable about all areas we visited. We were also fortunate that the tour was planned so that we were often the first bus to arrive at sites which helped to lessen the wait times and crowds who would arrive later. The weather cooperated fully throughout our trip too! Looking forward to planning our next Gate 1 trip!

The trip was just absolutely remarkable. You guys cannot be paying Militsa enough. She is a great ambassador for your company and for the country that she loves. Because of her commentary the whole experience was richer. She provided great information on each site that we visited but perhaps more importantly for me she offered information on Greek life and the Greek people that was not available in the guide books. My wife and I were as interested in the lives of the people who live in Greece as we were about the sites. Militsa happily answered our, no doubt tedious, questions. She even provided Greek treats for the tour participants. Basically she treated us like family and it made the trip that much more enjoyable.

This was our first Gate 1 tour and I must say it was outstanding. We saw so much of Greece, both the islands and mainland in the 2 weeks we were there. I couldn't have asked for more. Celestyal Crystal was an older ship, the crew kept it spic and span and provided such wonderful service ... The food was excellent and a good variety. The provided tours, drink package, and other add ons were great. Although the cruise was contracted to Celestyal, having Constantine and Julia along to guide us through things and insure we got everything we were supposed to was stellar. The hotels and their buffets were great. We had a free cooking class for lunch, that was great; thank you Gate 1 ... All the Gate 1 personnel at the airport, hotels, tours, etc were super. This was an outstanding value for the money! We ran into many other people on this trip that had been on prior Gate 1 tours and could only say the best things. We look forward to traveling with them in the future, possibly a Russian river cruise in 2020. We're already committed through 2019. Once again, thanks for a wonderful experience Gate 1!

The trip was fantastic!! We were very pleased with the choice of hotels in Athens, Olympia and Delphi, and the meals we were served were fantastic. Our three-day bus tour was nothing less than outstanding--beginning with a touring bus that was top-tier, and topped off with a guide who was deeply knowledgeable and extremely gracious. Ana's intelligent and vividly descriptive dialogue pertaining to the history of the sites we visited was informative and entertaining. Seriously, she was a walking encyclopedia. As usual, Gate 1 Travel went the extra mile with this package and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have had the pleasure of experiencing Greece in this manner. Thanks for a great trip!

The trip was a complete success, beyond fantastic. In my opinion, this is the time of the year to visit Greece. The weather is ok, the crowds are low. I loved the trip and the guide was the best ever.

I can't begin to describe the amazing time my family and I had...The experience was wonderful. From the airline, to the hotels and tours. Fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide in Elena Gaitani. She is so engaging and made you feel like you were a part of history. We loved her. The value was beyond anything. Thank you so much to Gate 1 for giving families like mine the opportunity to travel the world together at such an unbeatable price...thank you for the unforgettable memories.

Will see u again soon.....

So much fun! What a fantastic country to visit. The tour guide, Vivian, was so knowledgeable. It was like having a class in Greek mythology and archaeology taught by a PHD. She was also super at keeping the tour moving on schedule and coordinating all the facets of the trip. I highly recommend this tour, Vivian, and Gate 1.

First time with Gate 1 and we are glad we did. Tour manager, Maria, is very knowledgeable and did an excellent job of providing historic and cultural information relevant to the tour. The itinerary is well paced and we learned a lot about Greece by the end of the week.

The trip was GREAT! Please note our tour guide, Maria, was absolutely awesome. Everything was well time and well paced, and our tour guide provided a wealth of information throughout. Thorough yet easy to manage all of the history and anecdotes. Please give her and our tour bus operator, Socrates, the highest marks possible. A+++

Fantastic! We were truly impressed with the quality and experiences, but mostly, our guide, Eugene Alexiou, made our trip special. She is the most knowledgeable guide we have worked with plus a very sweet and kind person. Hold on to her!

Our trip to Greece was wonderful. Our Gate 1 guide, Elena, was probably the best we've ever had. The scenery was spectacular, the food was delicious and Gate 1 took care of everything for us. It made the whole week more relaxing since Elena took care of all the details. This was our first trip with Gate 1 but it certainly won't be our last.

Awesome trip. Loved every minute. Our guide, Evgenia, is a treasure. Wonderful personality, and smart (academic background - archeology major) with a sense of how much to tell us, and when. We were well prepared as we traveled about and her guidance made us appreciate the history of Greece's colorful past through ruins, battles, and personalities to the fullest. She is passionate about her country and it shines through every thing and every place we saw. I hope you compensate her well!!
