I’d like to thank Gate 1 for my wonderful stay in Israel. The experience was educational, spiritually enriching and fun of course. A lot of the credit goes to our tour guide, Ophir, who was simply amazing. He was very professional and knowledgeable on a lot of topics. He patiently answered questions which I must say were not few. He took very good care of the group and even gave us treats (e.g. fresh pomegranate juice, fresh fig he picked from a fig tree and the tasty halva) and reminded us not to forget our VAT refund . And there was our driver, Kobi, who was always smiling and always happy to welcome us back to his cool bus. Thanks again Gate 1. You’re the best.

My family and I had an amazing trip w/Gate 1. It was our first time doing a tour group, and we were pleasantly surprised. We travel a lot but usually independently and get guides upon arrival. Liat, our tour guide for this trip, was amazing. She's incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and well-prepared. We enjoyed the sites of Israel and would definitely recommend Liat and Gate 1. She was fantastic!

It was wonderful, we were very pleased with your tour company. This was our first time but definitely we are going to travel with you in the near future. I can not praise enough the tour guide Gai, he was first class, considered very knowledgeable and courteous to everyone.

It was excellent...I would recommend it to anyone. Every day was an adventure and every day we were well taken care of. We have memories for the rest of our lives. We could never make a trip like this on our own and with low cost efficiency like this one. You are #1 in the travel business as far as we are concerned!

The entire trip was very insightful and enjoyable experience from the information provided by the tour guides to the counties visited. It was undeniably the best trip we have ever taken. This trip proved that one must visit a place to truly appreciate it's wonder. We look forward to our next trip with Gate 1 Travel. Thank you again. Hashim who guided us through Jordan and Adina thorough Israel were better than anyone could ever expect.

This was my best Gate 1 trip yet. First of all, I loved the Biblical history of both Israel and Jordan; loved the sites and excursions. Petra was awe inspiring; walking the signs of the cross in Jerusalem had so much meaning. The four-wheel drive in the Jordan desert was very interesting, especially teamed with tea and a lunch with the bedouins--I could go on and on. The tour guide in Israel, Uri, was fantastic. I thought that the poor tour guide in Jordan could never compete, but I was wrong. Hazim Mahadin was spectacular as well. Both men had a passion for their countries and their histories. They were always willing to answer questions; always friendly and helpful. It was so refreshing to get different perspectives on the Middle East and its people than what we see on our regular news programs in the US. I will highly recommend Gate 1 and these tour guides to my friends and family. A most memorable trip!! The only downside was the 2:20 am flight out of Amman, but that's a minor complaint. I always feel Gate 1 takes good care of its customers. Thank you!!

We had a wonderful time and two great guides. Loved the Marriotts in Jordan. We especially enjoyed Jordan; so much to see that we didn’t realize how much there was beyond Petra. Our guide, Hamiz, was our all-time favorite; he was so knowledgeable and demonstrated a real love and compassion for his country. All the Jordanians we met were so welcoming. We’ve never been thanked so many times for visiting a country.

We had so much fun on this vacation. It's our very first time to join a tour as we usually go on our own but we find this rather a better and stress free way of touring an unfamiliar place. We heard many good things about Gate 1 from fellow tourists who are repeat customers, so we will definitely use Gate 1 again in the future. Thanks for all the work you guys did for us.

Our trip to Israel was wonderful! We have always traveled independently, so it was with great apprehension that we embarked on an escorted tour. Experiencing a Gate 1 tour has really changed my perspective on world travel! We had very little concern about all the details of our vacation because they were all taken care of. We felt rather spoiled! As soon as we returned I began looking at out other Gate 1 tours for future holidays!

It was AWESOME! Our tour guide, Ophir, was exceptional. This was truly a trip of a lifetime. My husband and I said it was the best trip we've ever taken. This was our first Gate 1 tour but certainly not our last. We found the information to be very informative to prepare for this trip.

I don't know where to begin to tell you how wonderful my trip was!! But, I'll try because I want everyone to use Gate 1 Travel and go see Israel. The travel was smooth, the hotels supreme, the food delicious, the sites remarkable, the tour guide very knowledgeable, and on and on and on....I can't say enough! Gate 1 seemed to think of everything! I was so impressed by our tour guide Nola. She knew and shared so much information with us, and she was so enthusiastic about everything, everyday!! I loved that! It truly made everyday an adventure! Even the bus driver Elly(?) was so very friendly, helpful, patient, & a great driver!! The overall trip was very organized & fun-filled. All the extra optional events were worth every penny. From the moment you left the hotel till the time you returned, you were learning something. The week went so fast, and I loved every moment!! ? I can't say enough about Nola, our guide; she really made the trip spectacular!! Definitely keep me on your mailing list because I will use Gate 1 again, for sure, and will share your name everywhere I go!! Thanks again for what y'all do to make it a wonderful experience!!

We just got back from 8 Day Essential Israel and we couldn't be more pleased. We are not big organized-tour people but the price was so low we took a chance and are glad we did. We got so much value for our money! It was easy to book and we thought the customer service was great and very responsive. The tour guide, Mika, was exceptional, and the driver, Kobe, was the best driver we have ever seen. The choice of places to visit on the itinerary was terrific and the hotels, while all tourist class, were clean and well-run. We loved that the itinerary was kind of "modular" so was there was a ton of opportunity to either have free time or go on the optional tours. We took most of the optional tours and those were great too, and had the advantage of being smaller groups than the whole 38 of us (which was also fine). The audio receivers they issued were a game-changer so we could walk while Mika told us all about what we were seeing. We covered so much more ground that way. Everything was so seamless and easy! Our fellow travelers were all great too, with various backgrounds and ages, and we were like family after our experiences together. We would definitely take another Gate 1 tour. It was really terrific and would highly recommend it, especially this one to Israel, a land that is enchanting and is very safe. It stole our hearts and we can't thank Gate 1, Mika and Kobe enough.
