We had a great trip. We had a fabulous tour manager, assistant and driver who took very good care of us. Our second venture with Gate 1 was another very positive one and we look forward with future travels with Gate 1! So, thank you so much for helping us organize this trip.Charanjit S. Bloomfield, MI
The trip was AWESOME! I came a away with a love for the country of Morocco and a love for the people. Our guide, Mohamed, was phenomenal. Everything we did was great. The hotels were all well located. I have already recommended Gate 1 to several people and I look forward to booking my next trip.Pauline A. Berwyn, PA
The trip was incredible! I had a wonderful, unforgettable time. Rashid, Abdel and assistant Rashid were terrific. You have some valuable employees without a doubt. Director Rashid was exemplary and went the extra mile on all accounts. I will definitely book through Gate 1 when I book my future travels. Thank you very much.Cari S. Fort Worth, TX
Our vacation was amazing!! So happy that we chose Gate 1. Our tour manager in Morocco, Larbi, was personable and fun as well as very knowledgeable and so helpful. The accommodations were super and the coach was comfortable. I think all of the optional tours were a great deal for the cost. Will definitely travel with Gate 1 again! Thanks!Rachel S. New Prt Rchy, FL
Great trip. Loved Morocco. Our tour manager, Ham, was so knowledgable. Liked the pace, always doing something.Elaine M. Los Lunas, NM
The trip to Morocco was so much more than a vacation. It was an adventure of a life time. It is a beautiful land of constant contrast populated by beautiful people and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of this. Kudos to Gate 1 for planning such an amazing trip. The hotels were lovely -- much more than I anticipated and each meal was a delightful feast. Our tour guide Mohammad was brilliant, funny, professional and couldn't have been more helpful. No detail was left unattended. He went so far as to book our room close to our travel companions. The bus driver and his assistant were courteous and pleasant. We were able to relax and enjoy the journey. And what a journey -- thank you for planning such an amazing trip -- souks, palaces, dinners, the High Atlas Mountains, the canyon, lunch in an aromatic garden and the desert, camel rides and witnessing a sunset in the Sahara, followed by travel along a magical coast to a final farewell feast. Memories and friendships were made. Since then it has been a pleasure reliving the trip as I tell friends and family about the experience. I believe as a result there are more customers in your future! This was my first with Gate 1 but I am already looking forward to the next journey.Kathleen B. Wshngtn Xing, PA
Morocco was great! Rashid was a WONDERFUL, PATIENT, KIND and vey knowledgable tour manager. Mr. Hibib, our driver, was fantastic, careful and very patient. This was a vacation that will likely change the way I think about Islamic countries....at least Morocco. What a delight to see the Medina at Fez!Patricia T. Beaufort, NC
This wasn't my first time traveling with Gate 1, and based on my previous great experiences I had high hopes and expectations. Ibrahim, our tour guide, made Morocco trip an absolutely incredible experience! The itinerary was phenomenal, and carefully planned out that we were able to see so much and never feel rushed. Ibrahim was excellent at telling us the Moroccan history and enduring me were comfortable and happy every portion of the trip. My personal favorite was Marrakesh. I would go back in a heartbeat and extend the greatest amount of gratitude to our guide and driver for the fabulous trip and memories that will last forever.Ludmila H. Napa, CA
We had a fantastic trip to Morocco. The balance between planned activities and free time was perfect for our travel style. We felt we really got to see everything we wanted to see in each city we visited. Our tour manager, Rachid, was absolutely fabulous. His knowledge really brought our trip to another level. We also appreciated our tour manager trainee, Hassan. He brought another level of expertise to our experiences that we really valued. Overall, the trip was a great value and we feel like we got so much more than what we paid for. We can't wait to be able to take another Gate 1 trip.Krista Z. Albany, NY
I had a GREAT time! Was with such lovely people, some that I will be in contact with for future travel! Our guide was funny, knowledgeable, and helpful.Mary B. Alpine, NY
Morocco was absolutely amazing. Everyday was a complete surprise. When I went to India last year it was all I expected. The colour, the smells, the poor, The rubbish in the street, the food, the Taj, and so on. Well Morocco was different. I had no idea it was a hidden gem. And our guide, Mohammed was just beautiful. His knowledge, his empathy and company was so much appreciated. As a single traveller I was so comfortable. Not to mention our driver, Abraham was brilliant. How he gets that big bus round the Atlas Mountains I have no idea. Big kudos to him. Our assistant Abdul was always there to help and support. Congrats to him. His wife delivered twin boys as we arrived in Marrakech. And he was back on board next day. Amazing. As you know I am a big fan of Gate 1 with South Africa coming up next month and then Scandinavia in August. Most of my fellow passengers were return clients. Excellent accommodation, great food, very impressive local guides, comfortable bus and the "comfort stops" were also excellent and well placed. So important. A lot of work must go on behind the scenes to make things go so like clockwork. Much appreciated. And that bus appears "like magic" after we have been sightseeing.Susan K. QLD, Australia
The trip was amazing!!!!! What a wonderful experience, beautiful country with a very rich history and culture! Thank you and to Gate 1 Travel for the excellent guide Mohammad, the bus driver and for all the organizing details of this trip. We're looking forward to joining again other trips.Jacob A. Ontario, Canada
We had a fantastic time. Morocco is magical. Our guide, Khalid, is great. He is attentive, very knowledgeable about Morocco and funny. This was our second trip with Gate 1 and we are satisfied with the sites visited, tour managers, hotel arrangement and the booking experience. Great job.Sandra C. Ontario, Canada
It was a great trip- my wife and I enjoyed every minute of it. Gate 1 employees did an excellent job keeping all of the tour group engaged and helped us whenever we had a question or needed direction. Thank you Gate 1, we will be back for another trip and recommend you to friends.Frank N. Cato, NY
My trip was fantastic. The tour guy Mohammad was wonderful.... super super sweet , always making sure we have the best!!! Thank you so much Gate 1.Vera V. Los Angeles, CA
My trip was fantastic. So well organised, comfortable, informative and such vale for money. I will certainly be recommending Gate 1 Travel and taking more trips myself with Gate 1 in the future. Best ever.Barbara M. NSW, Australia
The trip was wonderful - a really nice group of people and Sninat, the guide, was very good. Everything was well-organized and went smoothly. The hotels were good and well located in the places where we stayed so we could all go out exploring on our own. I also appreciated the guides waiting at the airport upon our arrival and the gentleman who helped us at the airport on the way back. A great idea and a very good service to your customers.Martina S. Rockville, MD
It was absolutely marvelous from every aspect. It was interesting, the accommodations were great, and our tour leader, Sninat, was one of the best, if not the best guides I have ever encountered. Both my husband and I had a superb time. Thank you so much.Marion B. Spring Valley, NY
The trip was great. Hamdine (Ham) was a wonderful, informative and helpful tour guide. I had registered to run the half marathon in Marrakech. Although it was the day the tour left Marrakech, Ham helped arrange it so that I could run and then arrange to catch a train and so catch up with the tour group. Running in Africa, on another continent is an experience which I will always treasure. The sights in Morocco were spectacular, the country diverse from the goats in the argan trees to the women's cooperatives to the Fez labyrinth. Morocco was not a country that I had thought of seeing until suggested by a friend. I am thrilled that I went. I would definitely recommend a Gate 1 tour to friends.Paulette M. Bellevue, NE
The entire Gate 1 experience highly exceeded my expectations. The highlight of the trip was our tour guide Khalid - he was friendly, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. He's likely the greatest tour guide on the planet! We had a group of 13 friends on this trip and we were all so pleasantly surprised by the ease of travel, amount of amenities especially in light of the great pricing. I will certainly be considering other Gate 1 tours in the future.Catherine P. New Orleans, LA
We had a wonderful trip. There were a total of 20 of us in the group and we all got along very well. The duration of the trip was just right. The home hosted dinner was excellent...The dinner host family was very nice and the food was very good. The optional tour of the sahara dessert (4x4 and camel trekking) was an experience of a lifetime. All of these experiences most likely don't happen without a very knowledgeable tour manager (Larbi). He had a good command of the English language and knew the history of the country very well. There was ample time for sight seeing and shopping. I would strongly recommend this trip.Conchita B. Orchard Park, NY
I had an amazing time! It was a jam-packed trip, but I never felt like we were speeding through things. I'm very glad to have picked the kaleidoscope tour and to have seen so much of the country. Also, I couldn't have asked for a better local Gate 1 team. Our bus driver, Mohamed, and the assistant, Bader, were so kind and helpful. They did a lot for us on this trip. Ibrahim, our tour manager, was absolutely amazing. He really went out of his way to make sure we were all having a good time and enjoying the trip. He really showed how much he cared about us and about his country. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. I look forward to traveling with Gate 1 again!Alyson M. Columbus, OH
To summarize our recent trip to Morocco, it was GREAT. The tours, the team on the bus, especially Khalid, our guide, manifested on a daily basis the highest degree of professionalism. The people of Morocco, in any venue, hotel, restaurant, on the street were truly genuine. They appreciated our visit to their country, and especially our interest in their history, culture and religion. I highly recommend this tour with Gate 1 Travel for any traveler interested in exploring a true gem of an experienceNina T. Brooklyn, NY
The Morocco trip was much better than my expectations. The whole tour was run like clockwork. Every place visited was very beautiful and interesting. Ibrahim is a fantastic tour guide. He made everything flow smoothly. His sense of humor kept us all laughing. His knowledge of Morocco was a great help for everyone. I did not hear one complaint from the rest of the people . It shows what a great tour it was.Robert T. El Paso, TX
It was great! I loved everything about it. Well organized, too and our main guide, Mohammad was excellent. I'll be planning more trips with your company for sure.Leszek Z. Chicago, IL
Fabulous - Khalid was the best guide we have ever had. Morocco was stupendous, Italy was wonderful. We loved every minute of our trip and made some more new friends as well. We recommended you several times as well as Gate 1! Love your trips!Gregory M. Littleton, CO
Our trip to Morocco was Fantastic and our guide Ham was extraordinary. I have never had a guide who was so meticulous to all the details before. Every time we turned around he was there right at the time we needed him. Ham truly made our trip so much more enjoyable. He was so friendly and knowledgeable. You could tell he is very passionate about what he does and desires for people to gain understanding of his country and culture. This is one trip I would highly recommend for anyone to go on, and to get Ham would definitely be the Bonus!!!Sandra W. Greenfield, WI
It was absolutely FANTASTIC! We had a great bunch of people (all Americans, besides the 2 of us) and we all got on really well. Our tour guide, Ham, was just wonderful. He was full of information, good advice and very knowledgeable on all things Morocco. We had a great bus driver and assistant as well. This was my very first Gate 1 tour, many others on the tour had done lots more. I was impressed with the organisation, the selected accommodation and itinerary. It was just the best, stress free holiday in an unknown country & culture. The others on the tour who had done many Gate 1 tours also mentioned that this was one of the best they had done. Thank you to yourself and Gate 1 for such a wonderful experience. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends and family. Looking forward to saving some more money & doing another Gate 1 tour!Lidia T. VIC, Australia
Thank your your email. We were very pleased with our Gate1 tour of Morocco. The trip exceeded our expectations in all counts. The hotels we found were excellent as were the included meals. Our guide, Moha, was superbly organised, compassionate towards the members of “the tribe” travelling with him and very knowledgeable, allowing him to relate to travellers who have different social/cultural backgrounds. We would not hesitate in recommending Gate 1 to others.Graeme M. New South Wales, Australia
My trip was excellent, thanks in part to the hard work of Ibrahim, our tour guide. He was so hard working, always helpful, kind and knowledgeable on all sort of subjects. He made the whole week fun. Also, the country was just fascinating - I want to go back and do some camping in the Sahara Desert. Great trip.Carol S. Alexandria, VA
Our holiday was fabulous. Everything about the holiday went well: the accommodation, optional tours, tour guides, food, experiences. Gate 1 were a great company and on both tours were people who had been on Gate 1 tours numerous times. I guess the only down side is the long fights to get to Europe and the adjusting to our time zone now that we are back. Sleep is a bit out of whack still, but getting there. Thank you for your assistance with our travel arrangements and we highly recommend Gate 1 to anyone wanting to experience Morocco, Spain and Portugal or for that matter any countries that Gate 1 does tours in. We would also recommend yourself for your patience in putting together our holiday.Helen W. QLD, Australia
My trip was fantastic! I really have to give kudos to our tour manager Khalid. He is is the best guide ever! Not only was he knowledgeable about all things Morocco, but he also had a great sense of humor and he really made us feel as if he cared about our group. I always felt like he was looking out for our best interests and would always be there if we needed him, no matter the issue. This was my second Gate1 trip (10 Day Croatia and Slovenia in May 2015 was my 1st) and I have to say that based on the caliber of the guides I've encountered, I would definitely recommend this tour company to others. I look forward to my next adventure with Gate1!Michelle D. Atlanta, GA
I want to say thank you to you and the Gate 1 people for an experience of a life time. I am so glad l went even if l was the only one travelling alone on the trip. All flight connections and transfers worked like clockwork outside of normal delays. We had a sensational tour manager Larbi ... Cannot say enough about his professionalism, local knowledge, attention to all our needs ( even the really needy ones), helpful hints etc spoilt us rotten and we laughed all the way around the country due to his incredible sense of humour. He regularly made sure l was ok because l was a solo traveller. Safest bus driver around , and the most loyal bus assistant. Local guides were also very knowledgable English language skills faultless 36 participants half American and half Australian. The Australians were all new to Gate1 whereas the Americans had travelled previously with gate 1 anywhere between 3 and 12 times ... This sealed the positive perception we Australians all had from the very start ... We were not disappointed . The Americans were not wrong about the company as the repeat business clearly indicates. The adventure was faultless, the length of the trip and pace just right, very good hotels, food was excellent, our expectations managed, circumstances explained so that participants could not complain, helpful hints on local goods, prices, shopping , transport, safety etc etc. Many of the Australians have discussed a future trip together and are sharing a social media connection to keep in contact. We wouldn't hesitate to travel with Gate 1 again.Vivianne N. VIC, Australia
Our trip was fabulous n the tour guides were knowledgeable, funny n helpful. The food was consistently amazing n healthy. The bus was comfortable and accommodating (water available daily). The sites, excursions n the drive where informative. The hotels were very nice. Our tour guide Hamdan was funny friendly, quite helpful n fun. Our driver was amazing. We (4 persons) had an incredible and enjoyable trip to Morocco...great memories n great group of people. I have been raving about this trip since I've been back. Keep up the great tours, itinerary, guides etc, we will be booking with you again.Justina W. Garden Grove, CA
Great and made new friends!!!Marie W. WA, Australia
Wonderful, delightful, interesting and informative. Our tour guide was exceptional, he was very knowledgeable and attentive to all the needs and wants of each one of his charges I cannot say enough good things about this trip. I would certainly recommend this tour and Gate 1. I am an experienced traveler and take about 10 trips annually, so I believe I know a good adventure when I see itLinda A. Boynton Beach, FL
I wanted to take the opportunity to express to Gate 1 how awesome our trip to Morocco was a few weeks ago. Larbi, our tour manager, was absolutely amazing. He was so friendly, understanding, knowledgeable, and personable. He offered such great information and stories, and really made the trip that much more enjoyable. This was our second Gate 1 trip – first to Peru last year, with our tour manager Abel. We tell everyone we know that they should consider Gate 1 when booking travel abroad, and we will continue to use your company each and every time we take an adventure. Morocco was absolutely stunning, and the package that you all have put together really hit the highlights in a great way. The dinner with the Moroccan family was definitely a highlight, and I would recommend keeping it on the tour for many years to come. Larbi offered us a fantastic piece of advice, which was to tour Hassan II Mosque while in Casablanca. It was a little extra money – I believe it was $12/person – but the tour was more than worth it. It was such a great suggestion by Larbi, and I would highly recommend it be offered as part of the included package (if possible). We learned so much about not only the country and the people, but also Islam – which I think is increasingly important in this day & age. There were so many things that we had wrong about the religion and the people, and as we learned about them both, I became ashamed that I had ever been so blind to the wonders of the culture overall. Everyone should take the opportunity to visit Morocco, if given the ability, and have their eyes opened to how wonderful of a place and culture that it is. Thanks so much, Gate 1, for putting together such an amazing vacation. We made lifelong friends, we learned lifelong lessons, and we left with lifelong stories. Larbi is the man!Leslie S. Mount Holly, NC
Loved it, loved it, loved it! I cannot imagine a better tour leader than Ham. He was our protector, our advisor, our doctor, and at times even our bank. There is nothing he would not do for us and no detail was overlooked. And the tour was brilliant! I hated to see it end. I am so impressed with gate one. My husband and I are already thinking about when to take another oneLinda T. Sebastopol, CA
Awesome! It couldn't have been any better - thanks to a wonderful tour guide, Mohamed. My partner and I learned so much about Morocco, absorbed as much of the various cultures as we could in the time that flew by too quickly, enjoyed the food, steeped ourselves in the history, and even learned several Arabic phrases. I would recommend this tour to anyone.Heather D. Ontario, Canada
It was awesome! Thanks for asking! As always Gate 1 always includes unexpected treasures! We had a great group as well....lots of humor, laughs, great conversations, and fabulous weather. The day on the desert was totally incredible! Perfect for someone who taught African geography for 28 years and Sea Life & Oceanography...too much fun!Glenda D. Millsboro, DE
My trip was great! Absolutely amazing! You know initially, I was hesitant to go as a solo traveler, but there was never a time that I felt uncomfortable while I was there. Our tour manager, Hamdame, was excellent. It was evident that he not only loves his work, but he loves people. And he loves sharing his love of his country with others. He made me feel excited to experience Morocco. And I really felt like I didn't just "visit" Morocco, but I truly experienced the country. The food was great, the country is beautiful, the people were so friendly. People kept telling me "welcome to Morocco". Again I loved everything about the trip and Morocco is now one of my favorite places.Jeanatta G. Charlotte, NC
Our trip was absolutely splendid; congratulations again to Gate 1 for putting together the perfect balance of sightseeing, hotels, meals, and the rest. Enough cannot be said about our guide, Khalid. The quality of a trip can often be determined by the guide, and Khalid knew how to balance the various qualities that make an exceptional guide--he was witty, humorous, and a splendid teacher with a very in-depth knowledge of his country, Morocco. The poor man, I don't know when he slept. I know that the success of a tour company depends on capable and dedicated people, Khalid fits the bill by every description. Please do what is necessary to keep him.Rebecca C. Charleston, SC
Thank you for your inquiry! We had a fantastic time, as usual, with a Gate 1 trip. Our Tour Manager was perfect - friendly, helpful, full of history and information, all par for a Gate 1 trip! The highlight of the trip was the camel ride at sunset in the desert! Great times with a great company and a very cohesive group of travelers. We are looking forward to our next Gate 1 trip! Thank you so much for your help!Nancy Q. San Francisco, CA
Thank you Gate 1 for introducing me to magical Morocco. An amazing country with incredible cities that immerse the visitor into the culture and tradition of the country. A rich history that is reflected from city to city. Medina and souk that plunge the traveler into Moroccan everyday life. Beautiful villages on the ocean with iconic blue boats. High Atlas Mountains that reach a height of over 7,000 feet. A highlight for me, the Sahara Desert, so striking with its sun and shadow. We all felt incredibly safe on this trip and heard over and over " Welcome Americans ". It was my first trip to a Muslim nation and I found the people kind, caring and helpful. The people themselves were quite beautiful and the women were stunning with their colorful headscarves. I can't compliment our tour leader Khalid enough. He became the face of Morocco for us - so kind, so careful to make us all feel safe and cared for, so knowledgeable about the history of his country, so immersed in the culture and traditions of Morocco. He contributed dramatically to the success of this trip and the impression I have of the country. Abdul was always there to lend a hand exiting the bus, to hand out water, to support us in any way. Abraham was the driver extraordinaire who made us feel safe and secure even during our travel through the Atlas Mountains. Go To Morocco !! You will experience the trip of a lifetime...Kathy L. Derry, NH
My mother and I had a wonderful time and learned a lot about Moroccan history and culture. Thank you for checking in!Sarah L. Oakland, CA
Awesome! Labri was a fantastic tour manager, and our driver, Hakeem and assistant, Aziz were outstanding. We loved the hotels and the optional tours. I suspect we will be taking another Gate 1 tour in the not-too-distant future.Gary S. St. Augustine, FL
My family has used Gate 1 for years and we've never been disappointed. I've taken a few trips with your company but Morocco was the best experience that I've had so far! Our Guide, Rashid, was one of the best guides I've ever had. He was really focused on making sure everyone had a good time and did more for our comfort than any guide I've ever had. Appreciated that he went into great details on the local culture and did more than just recite dates and historical facts. His presentations were much more thorough and interesting to us than what we could learn from a tourbook (which a lot of tour guides do). We LOVED the hosted dinner! It was the best meal we had there (and overall we enjoyed all the food on vacation). I hope you continue to offer that on the tours, it was a huge hit with our group. My husband was so touched that Rashid had a birthday cake for him at our Orientation, it was a lovely surprise and showed great attention to detail. We both fell in love with Morocco and were sorry to come home. Wish we had taken a longer tour but I am encouraging everyone I know to visit and take your 13 day tour. Our photos have generated a lot of interest and have given out the flyers you mail to me to coworkers. I don't normally repeat countries but would be open to another trip to Morocco! It was the BEST!Jennifer G. Concord, NC
The trip was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. The trip manager/guide was excellent. As usual we found that we share so many interests and views on traveling with our fellow Gate 1 travelers that it makes for a great group.Raymond H. Listowel, Ontario CA
I am very pleased to report that the Morocco tour was positively perfect. Our tour manager Larbe, bus driver Hassan and assistant Ackmet all took very good care of us. Larbe's narration throughout the trip was historical, educational, cultural and always fun and interesting to listen to. I found Morocco to be much more beautiful and diverse then I expected. The cities are glamorous and cosmopolitan. The countryside crossing the Atlas mountains along the winding roads, seeing the cork and cedar forests leading into the palm groves was just spectacular. Words can't describe the Sahara sand dunes or the Titcha Pass. Every monemt of the the trip was fun and exciting - thanks so much for getting me all set up for this trip. I can not wait for the next one.Margaret J. Parksville, NY
Our trip was FANTASTIC!!!! Another successful Gate1 trip. Our tour director, Ibraham was incredible. He took such good care of us. Every little detail was thought out. Morocco was beautiful and the people were so friendly and welcoming. Thanks again Gate 1.Kimberly L. Fulton, MD
