We just got back from Antarctica with Paola as our guide. I wish you could clone her. We could not believe how attentive she was to all our needs. She went way, way above what we would have expected, including personally calling us every morning to make sure we were awake on the ship, and even helping us get into our gear. We called her our mother, because she never missed an opportunity to take care of us. Please let her know how much she meant to us and how special we thought she was! And that went for all nine of us!Deborah C. Cohasset, MA
This trip was incredible...can’t put into words how amazing Antarctica is. I feel fortunate that I was able to spend a few days in Ushuaia and enjoy Tierra Del Fuego before the expedition. Sylvia is fabulous! She is incredibly organized, really kind, and fun. She was able to connect with all in the group..The MS Midnatsol is a beautiful ship that handled the Drake really well. They organize the groups so that things are constantly moving and all have plenty to keep busy with. I never felt as though I didn’t have enough time on land and was not rushed. They go with the flow and are able to come up with many contingency plans depending on the weather, seas, and overall conditions ... Sylvia was able to arrange an additional tour to Tierra Del Fuego park following disembarkation as our flight was very late to depart for Buenos Aires, she always went above and beyond. I highly recommend any Gate 1 trip as they have all been really great.Michelle L. West Warwick, RI
Excellent as always. Lana is one of the best trip managers I have seen. The ship was clean and in great shape, and the food was gourmet level. The crew was terrific, professional, friendly, and serving. A totally positive experience.Allan G. Dumfries, VA
We had a wonderful, worry-free trip. The Adriatic Queen was a very comfortable ship. The captain and crew were not only skilled sailors, but also friendly and willing to answer all of our questions. Our tour director, Lana, made every day and every stop interesting. The water in the Adriatic is so clean and clear. Our captain found us a safe place each day to anchor for a swim .... Our chef made delicious food and served it in gourmet style. Thanks for a terrific cruise.Elizabeth M. Huntington Beach, CA
We had a great time. Devon was cute as a button, welcoming and included everyone as part of our tour family. She was knowledgeable about Alaska and the sites that we visited. Jesse, our driver, was really nice and he went out of his way to tell us about places that we were seeing and stopped so we could look at Denali when it was in full view. It was very spectacular. We had great weather and the trip was very smooth and pleasant. When we got to the cruise, we already had several nice acquaintances and it was fun running into each other on the cruise and even having dinner and social time with some people that we met on the land tour.Victoria B. Stony Brook, NY
We were on the Karizma last week cruising Croatia, and all was great. The ship was great, the staff was exceptional (especially the serving staff, cooks & household staffs). The scenery was beautiful and the choices of stops along the way were outstanding & the fellow passengers (from across the world) were great fun to be with. We have been on 3 or 4 Gate 1 trips in the past and all have been wonderful & well beyond our expectations. Keep up the good work.Robert G. Newport Beach, CA
Fantastic! The journey, cruise, land, northern lights!, scenery, food AND the best tour guide ever! This was one great trip.Darleen W. Media, PA
Our honeymoon trip to Italy was amazing! A dream come true! We cannot say enough about our tour guide Simone. He knew so much and always had us smiling and ready for our next day of travel; letting us know the weather, the type of shoes to wear and all the little important details. We had just enough time for touring and down time to do our own thing. We're already looking into booking another Gate 1 tour! Thank you so much! It was worth every penny and we cannot wait to travel with your company again!!Rosemarie C. Williamstown, NJ
Fantastic! The bus tour was an A+! The cruise ship was too large and loaded with kids, but excellent food! Our independent tours that Patti booked were great! We also got off at Marsallas and Naples! Great tripLinda F. Bella Vista, AR
I have to rate the trip as very good , found , our tour guide both the overall one and the local guides were good , transfers were on time and the few extras received were appreciated.Robert G. Queensland, Australia
Our trip was fabulous, the entire family found Alaska to be very interesting.
Mt. McKinley was covered in clouds except for a tiny bit on one side, which I
understand is the norm. Saw moose, grizzlies, humpbacks, orca (very unusual),
seals and sea lions, etc. Amazing mountains and glaciers. Food was delicious
even for us vegetarians.
Some of our side trips on the cruise portion of the trip included sea kayaking and canoeing up to a glacier that we actually got to walk on. We got some amazing photos that look like they were taken with a fake backdrop.
Cruising is a great way to see Alaska along with the rail portion. Some cities don't even have a road in or out of town. They rely on boats and planes. I highly recommend this trip.
Our trip to New Orleans and the Royal Caribbean cruise to the Western
Caribbean were great. No complaints! No problems! The hotel in New Orleans
(Hotel Provincial) was a great location and Gate 1's inclusion of a half-day
tour there was much appreciated.
We will definitely be cruising with RCCL again, I find it very convenient to have Gate 1 handle all the details, rather than having to deal separately with airlines, hotels, transfers, insurance, cruise lines, etc.
The trip was fabulous. From the time we landed in Venice, until we departed from the cruise ship, everything went according to the itinerary. The sightseeing venues were spectacular and the side trips to a Tuscan Farm for wine tasting and dining at an authentic Tuscan Restaurant, were memorable. What made the trip so enjoyable and special was our Tour Manager, Vanni. He was organized, timely and extremely knowledgeable of the places we visited. Vanni went beyond the call of duty to make sure a valuable necklace I lost in the Vatican was returned to me before my departure. We met some wonderful people during the tour, but none quite as nice as Vanni.
I will be sure to spread the word about how awesome the trip was to my family and friends. Gate 1 is the #1 Travel Tour Company in my book.Barbara E. Miramar, FL
We really enjoyed our trip. We were greeted at the airport in Venice by Francesca, our guide for the land portion. Everyone on tour found her to be extremely friendly and capable. She was always well received by the local guides excursions we stopped at as well. This made for some entertaining and educational stops. We took the R/C Cruise in the Western Mediterranean. The cruise was great and very relaxing after a fast paced land tour with Francesca.
We were very pleased with our tour. I believe we will be looking into other tours Gate 1 offers next year.Larry G. Massapequa, NY
My trip was awesome!! The pictures I took will never be able to tell the story of what I experienced. Everyone thought I was crazy or brave traveling alone. They all adopted me and wanted me to hang out with them. I had a wonderful time touring Seattle and Alaska. The cruise ship was amazing and the staff addressed me by name daily. I would totally do it again. I'm already planning my trip for next year.Sharon C Philadelphia, PA
