10 Day Copper Canyon: Mexico & Tucson, September 2019
Dummy Image

My trip to Copper Canyon was wonderful. The bus ride was so scenic and Copper Canyon and San Carlos were just magical. I never imagined that Mexico was so beautiful. Our guide, Manuel, made the trip so special. He kept us informed about everything and taught us so much about the floral and fauna of Mexico. The train ride and the cable car ride into the canyon was the icing on the cake for this trip. The memories from this trip will be with me for a long time. Thank you Gate 1 for this special experience.

Great coach tour, very organized with plenty of attractions. Tom was the best tour guide we have experienced. Your Company will find it hard to replace him! Betty is an excellent driver, often in difficult little streets to navigate as well. Always with a friendly manner, she is good fun. Hotels all good, great locations & amenities.

Our trip to Mexico and Copper Canyon was wonderful. Edel was a fabulous guide who is incredibly knowledgeable about everything we saw and did. He is a great tour manager who took care of all our needs seamlessly and way exceeded my expectations. I always felt secure with him in charge. This was the 4th Gate 1 trip for my husband and I, and we plan to take many more in the future.

10 Day Copper Canyon: Mexico & Tucson, September 2019
Dummy Image

There are two things that make for a great trip beyond the itinerary: the weather and the tour manager. We were blessed with great weather but the greatest contribution was our manager, Edel. We have taken guided small-group trips with various companies over the years, with this trip being our second with Gate 1. All have been grand experiences, but this one stands out. Edel is the most personable, knowledgeable, caring person we have encountered. At every turn of the road, we would be introduced to local people, who were friends of Edel. This lead to experiences with indigenous people and facets of the varied Mexican cultures we may well have not otherwise experienced. Edel was totally organized throughout the tour, so his clients had no concerns but to soak in all the wonderful sensory inputs. We all left with gratitude, new understandings, and not a small sense of loss in leaving our new friend behind. We cannot say enough positive comments about Edel and Gate 1.

Our trip of the National Parks was phenomenal!! The sites were incredible and we wouldn’t have been able to see it all if we did not have an incredible driver. Taking a coach was the best decision as it allowed us to rest, view the landscape and interact. Our tour guide did a wonderful job of making sure we were informed.

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!!

Trip was very good. All accommodations were comfortable and offered good amenities. Tour bus was luxurious. Driver Patrick was flawless. Tour guide Andrea was awesome. She had covered and explained in great details about points to see, joking at many occasions. Waterton, Banff and Jasper were all worth visiting. Wish had more time to see city of Calgary. Weather was generally cooperative except on two occasions it rained. Will recommend to anyone without hesitation.

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.

GREAT, AWESOME and all the other wonderful descriptive words. The best tour guide ever, he was so very knowledgeable about the area. Never dreamed I was going to see what I got to see. The driver was also wonderful, he really could drive that route with ease, they need to be a permanent team. Cannot wait to take another trip and pray they are my guide and driver and I will have no worries.

Outstanding! Great parks, well planned itinerary, great hotels! The 14 day Ultimate National Parks Tour is a great way to experience our National Parks and see beautiful area of the USA! Our Tour Manager Leslie was knowledgeable, professional, organized and show us much more than we could have ever expected. Our driver Trevor was the best!

The trip was very nice and covered a lot of places. Our guide Sandra and driver Betty were terrific. Did above and beyond. Little surprise tastings every day on the bus. The transfers went smoothly and the hotel locations were really handy to everything. I was traveling alone and felt included. This was my first experience with Gate 1. My friend and I have booked a trip next year with you folks to Southeast Asia. I hope that trip is as good as this one was!

This trip was great, Gary was so great, humorous and knowledgeable. We didn’t know what to expect but we’re still in awe of the experience. From our arrival to departure not a flaw or problem. Schedule was great as well as pace. Lake Louise was beautiful as expected, but other lakes were another nice surprise. Gary took us to some nice side scenery. All travelers (23) was a good number and group.

It was pretty darn perfect. Great guide, bus driver and itinerary. We had a sunny day in Denali for viewing the mountain and wildlife. My third trip to Alaska...have visited friends in Juneau and Sitka...and I finally feel I have seen the real Alaska. Eagles, humpback and Orca whales, sea otters, puffins, caribou, mountain goats, sea lions, bears, Dall sheep and moose with beautiful mountains everywhere I looked. Couldn’t ask for anything more.

The trip was outstanding! The real unexpected gem was the Frogmore Plantation visit. A great combination of past and present cotton commerce, history of the south and slavery, and musical interpretation. We will be on another Gate 1 tour again, for sure!

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.

8 Day Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon & Zion National Parks, April 2019

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.

The trip was great. Very impressive of the boat ride at Marina San Carlos, and the train ride from El Fuerte to Posada Barrancas and the two day visit at the Copper Canyon. I learned a lot of Tarahumaras people and their community. The Mexican food was very tasty. It was a very good trip arrangement. Thanks again to Gate 1 for providing high quality, and affordable trips. I really enjoyed it.

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.

Our trip was wonderful and our tour guide, Ashley, was the absolute best!! We've been on many tours, not only with Gate 1, and Ashley was the best tour director we've ever encountered. Competent, personable, friendly, courteous, organized, helpful, and knowledgeable. She was always willing to go the extra mile for each of us. I will actually miss her very much!! She made each one of us feel extremely important. Thank you, Ashley, and thank you, Gate 1!! We'll be back! :)

The trip was wonderful. We were so fortunate to have Raul, the perfect guide! He obviously was so pleased to know we were enjoying ourselves, and we could totally depend on him to look after us. Very sincere, so knowledgeable. I’ve been to Mexico many times, but this was the first time I experienced the range of socioeconomic citizens and learned so much about the history of the country.

The trip was very good and our guide, Mr. Douglas did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable, funny and provided all the important information on arrival. His knowledge of the area was most helpful and we had a great time. I have already recommended this trip to few of my friends who did not make it this time.
