8 Day Classic National Parks, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone & Grand Teton, July 2019
Dummy Image

My trip to Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park and Grand Tetons was great! Gigi, our tour manager was wonderful! She was very organized and made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. She provided excellent commentary and reference materials during the long bus rides. She cared about the comfort and well-being of the entire group. Being a former teacher, Gigi clearly states her expectations and does not sugar coat her words. She has a great sense of humor too! She played very appropriate music during our bus drives, which made the trips even more relaxing and enjoyable. Towards the end of the trip, on our way to Salt Lake City, she made a surprise stop for lunch at Bear Lake, Utah and recommended the Raspberry milkshake, which was absolutely awesome! I am looking forward to taking my younger daughter on this trip in the future and hope to have Gigi again as our tour manager! Thank you Gigi!! You’re awesome!!

Our trip was really great! The accommodations were lovely, and the train ride was a wonderful way to see Alaska. Our tour guide did a terrific job, and we really enjoyed ourselves! We took lots of photos, were well fed, and met lots of nice people. I think my husband’s favorite piece of the trip was that train ride to Denali!! The cruise was also a great way to travel. Our staterooms were very very nice, especially the balcony for viewing glaciers. All of our excursions were very well done, and each of the towns in Alaska had plenty to offer ... We feel we got great value for the money spent on all aspects of our trip. And Gate 1 really delivered on a most enjoyable adventure! Thank you for all your assistance to us. We look forward to our next trip with your help!

Weather was generally cooperative except on two occasions it rained. Will recommend to anyone without hesitation.

In one word, I will say, “AWESOME “ Words cannot describe the places we’ve been to, e.g., Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, etc. Even a professional photographer can’t capture the beauty of the sites. You just have to enjoy them while you’re there. Camaraderie between the group was great— seemed like we’ve known each other for a while. Accommodations were very nice. Kudos for both Muriel (Tour Guide) and the driver — for a “Job Well Done.” Hope to have the same experience again, the next time around with Gate 1.

We had a wonderful trip to Mexico. We have taken about 10 Gate 1 tours and liked them all. Our tour manager, Douglas, made this trip special. He is knowledgeable and careful with details to make sure that all of us were pleased. He has a great personality and went out of his way to get to know all of us on the tour, providing us with little extras to make us feel welcome and valued. I can't say enough to praise Douglas. He is a real asset to Gate 1, which he praises regularly, telling us about his training and how Gate 1 goes to great lengths to make sure the meals and accommodations are the best possible. I want to mention Panchito, our bus driver, also. He is a cheerful person and a highly skilled bus driver. We were all impressed by how he was able to maneuver the bus in tight quarters and keep us all safe.

It was absolutely incredible. It's a trip I have wanted to take for decades and glad I never made it until Gate 1 offered this tour. I always expect good tours from when I travel with you but this one really exceeded our expectations. The activities and programs were educational as well as just plain enjoyable. Our guide Edel and driver were excellent. Thanks for offering such fantastic tours.

The Copper Canyon trip was very rewarding. During the trip our guide Juan kept us informed about history, geography, culture, and the many birds and plants we saw during the bus rides. The restaurants were very clean and the food was delicious. Hotels were the best and had great views. Juan made sure we had a wonderful trip.

I was extremely happy with our trip to Texas. It was my first trip with Gate 1. Most of the rest of the group were seasoned Gate 1 travelers who assured me that I was experiencing a typical Gate 1 tour. I am looking forward to my Gate 1 travel to Spain and Morocco in October.

My Mom and I had the best trip. We had so much fun exploring the parks and enjoying the beauty, Bryce was our favorite but we made great memories every day. Marianne, our tour manager, was incredible. She gave us plenty of knowledge and every day made sure we had what we needed for our hikes. Marianne was friendly, accommodating and beyond helpful. She and Lee, our driver, made our vacation.

We were fortunate to have Manuel as our tour guide and coordinator. His knowledge of history, anthropology, ornithology, botany and many, many other fields is truly amazing. It was our pleasure to be in the company of a true professional and gentleman. We particularly enjoyed his sharp wit and his caring and passionate love for his country and work. We were a large group with...yet Manual handled every situation with tact and diplomacy. We were also equally impressed with the skills of our driver, Javier. We felt completely safe in his capable hands. And last, but not least, our assistant tour manager, Douglas, another wonderful travel mate, gave a wonderful presentation on pearl farming. We would gladly take this tour again, if assured the company of these three gentlemen. They truly made the trip remarkable.
