The trip was great and Dani as a guide was great also. Always wanted to start seeing more states plus other countries and after 5 trips we are going to stick with Gate 1 and book more trips soon. We learned a lot about New Mexico, Indian pueblos, nuclear creations and art. Great hotels always also.

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.

Our trip was wonderful! Every part of it was positive and memorable ... Keri-Lyn F., our guide handled every detail of our trip in the most professional manor, kept the group in beautiful harmony with a personality that all the group were extremely pleased. Her knowledge of Alaska and her presentation was not only informative, but was laced with delightful stories of her own experiences as a native Alaskan ... But honestly, she is almost impossible to describe...she's that amazing! We appreciated her and respected the job she did beyond words. We hope that our attempt to let you know what a special tour guide you have in Keri-Lyn will be passed on to the upper management at Gate1.

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.

It was a great trip. The selection of stopping points, Hotels and pit stops, was very good if with great variety. The driver was excellent. He knew his route and handled the vehicle extremely well under all conditions. The guide Juan was exceptional. Although he was from Mexico his diction was flawless. Many times accents make comprehension difficult. This was NEVER an issue with Juan. He knew every location and could provide details of every area that we traveled through. He was able to present the itinerary in a clear concise and entertaining manor. We enjoyed the trip immensely and would recommend it.

This was our first guided tour, and we were somewhat nervous, however it was a perfect vacation. Our guide David, affectingly became known as "Uncle Dave", was amazing and went over and beyond. He was extremely informative and was always available for any questions. Uncle Dave used his own personal time on our days and evenings of leisure to ensure that we had a great time. He took a group of 40 people that were strangers and of varied cultures and somehow made everyone feel that they were family and connected. Lee, the bus driver, was amazing. I am terrified of curvy mountain roads, however I felt safe with Lee. Lee was very friendly and polite, as well as informative. The hotels and meals were all very good for the price that was paid. My husband and I will be using Gate 1 again, and are recommending Gate 1 to all our friends. Every aspect of this vacation was wonderful, reservations are very easy to make, the trip itself was fantastic and the price was very reasonable. Thank you Gate 1 for providing such a great experience. Looking forward to our future adventures with Gate 1.

From start to finish this was a wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable vacation. Our tour guide Danielle (Dani) was a delightful, super efficient, tour guide who always had a smile on her face, could fix any issues or problems quickly while making it all look effortless. She was extremely well versed on information on all aspects of the sights we were seeing or going to. We learned a lot of facts and history while journeying along from stop to stop. We had a fresh supply of cold water available each and every day, as well as snacks for longer times on the bus, before meal destinations were reached. She was a true gem. Our bus driver John, was a super bus driver, and drove the mountain roads with skill and care always with his passengers safety first and foremost. Our day in Yellowstone with our Park Ranger, Kimberly, was yet another information packed day. We never would have learned so much and seen so much without her. It was a great addition to our tour. This was our first “bus tour”, and would take another with Gate 1 again. The ease of entering and exiting all the parks and venues was again, one of the highlights. Parking, entrance fees, etc. was all handled as we watched single cars search for parking spots and wait in line to pay fees. All and all, it was truly one of our best vacations and we look forward to joining another Gate 1 tour in the future.

He was very organized, enthusiastic,knowledgeable and always went above and beyond to show us everything he thought we might be interested in, and made everything we did fun. He is passionate about the outdoors and the parks and that made the trip. In our opinion we could not have had a better leader. He organized speakers that were extremely interesting, especially Peter the Navajo Code Talker, as well as a dutch oven lunch and picnic lunches so we could spent more time seeing everything. Our bus driver was amazing as well. She handled that bus with amazing expertise, and was always happy.

Trip was great and we had a fantastic time. From the red rocks of Sedona to Old Faithful and Mt. Rushmore, to the bison and bears we saw, we were constantly in awe of things we had previously only seen in pictures. We even got to watch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir practice for their broadcast. Our guide, Leslie, was terrific, so personable, organized and informative on the areas we visited. Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone considering seeing the national parks. So many natural wonders out there!

It was a great trip; one of our best. Kelly was a superb leader and very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Great group and wonderful that it was only 19 people.

We had a very wonderful tour to Copper Canyon in Mexico. Sergio, our tour director, was not only knowledgeable with Mexican history and indigenous cultures but he was also a fantastic singer! We really enjoyed his singing with the Mariachi and other performers. It was another great tour with Gate 1.

Our, guide, Kris, was knowledgeable, caring, and had a sense of humor. Our local guide, in the French Quarter, Karen, was fabulous. We learned so much of the history of Louisiana. Hotels were fine. The meals on Gate 1 were excellent, and gave us a good taste of Cajun cooking. The farewell dinner, at The Creole School of Cooking, was good, and the Chef was not only a good chef, but a really good entertainer. Enjoyed the other local guides also.
