We enjoyed the trip very much. The tour leader, Kathryn was wonderful, and fun to be with. The bus driver, Darren, was excellent, kept the bus immaculate, and was very personable. We loved seeing all the special sights in Newfoundland/ Labrador and the boat trips to see icebergs, Puffins and whales. Thank you for your help Gate 1.

Fantastic! In spite of rainy days and fog we loved every minute. The landscape was gorgeous and the people everywhere wonderful. I swear Newfoundlanders are all comedians, I never laughed so much in my life. On our optional boat ride we observed two whales feeding for about 20 minutes, definitely a highlight! It was a wonderful and memorable trip and I recommend it highly.

We had a wonderful time in Newfoundland. It was everything we had hoped for and more. We thoroughly enjoyed the whale watching and icebergs and the coast line of Newfoundland. Our tour guide, Karen, was absolutely amazing and she took such good care of us during our tour. She went above and beyond in her services to us. Out of all our Gate 1 trips, she is by far the best tour manager for us. I would travel with her again in the future.
