Our trip was all we expected. We anticipated seeing the Great Wall, the Pandas, the Terracotta Warriors and experiencing the westernized look of Shanghai. All of those places did not disappoint us. We were completely amazed when we visited the park in Xian and joined in with local people as they celebrated their holiday. This stop was among the best memories of the trip. I have to say that the leadership and guidance we received from our guide, Jason, was the best we've had from our three trips with Gate 1. (The leadership of the men in the other two tours with Gate 1 we've taken were great, also.)Alice R. Lewiston, ID
The trip was excellent as all four of our Gate One trips. I can’t imagine getting better value from any other travel company. First our guide Jason was top notch. We give him our top rating. He was patient, knowledgeable, and an excellent leader. Second, the hotels we stayed at were beautiful and well located. We have never stayed in a hotel room as nice as the Golden Hotel. We are looking forward to our Gate One trip to Morocco, in June.Jim G. Clarkston, WA
I really enjoyed myself. Susan was great as a tour guide. She went above and beyond to help me out in a situation that came up.The trip to China was awesome! I already recommended several of my friends to check Gate 1 out. I’ll be taking another trip soon! Thanks for reaching out.William B. Charlotte, NC
I just completed the online survey, but want to say more about our tour guide, Rosie. She was fantastic in every way. She made the value of this trip even greater by sharing her knowledge of local places to eat and shop.e m Shade sure each of our meals was more than delightful. Any question was answered in a friendly and competent way. It was like being in a family with our mother Rose to show us the way. She took a personal degree of attention to every aspect of the trip. Nothing we asked was beyond her. AMazing! I can not say enough good things about her. China is an amazing place, and the quality of Gateone showed through in every aspect. There we nice touches, like taking care of our luggage, and other little extras. Not only would we do another trip with Gateone, but would ONLY do trips with you in the future. Why go anywhere else when everything is taken care of so well.George H. New Smyrna, FL
Thanks for your thoughts and followup. My trip was very enjoyable and an eye opener. Gate1's service and orginisation was the best. The trip was all the more enjoyable because of the thought and assistance put into the trip, from the excellent tour manager and very good local guides to the worry free transfers and flight connections. I feel I have a better understanding of China because of this. The trip has become the bench mark for assessing all my past and future trips. I have no hessitation in recommending Gate 1 to anyone that asks. Many thanks to Jack and all your staff for a terrific tripRick F. Orford, TAS, AU
The trip was terrific, we really enjoyed China and the itinerary that Gate1 provided, It was a bit hectic and we were on the go all the time but we really enjoyed it ,we have passed this on to all our inquiring friends, we told them a trip to China is a must. Jack our tour leader was also terrific, he was very informative and no problem was to trivial.Ted C. Lake Macquarie, NSW, AU
The trip was very good. We enjoyed the program itinerary the whole time with Frank Wang the excellent tour manager. Will use and recommended Gate1 Travel again on next vacation.Danny P. San Jose, CA
My trip was lovely, my second trip with Gate 1. Wonderful introduction to the Chinese culture. Hotels, meals and activities all met expectations. A bit fast paced in certain areas and free time too limited. Our tour leader exceptional and very dedicated. Thank you and look forward to future trips with Gate 1.Martha C. Forked River, NJ
This is our second trip with Gate 1 and we’re not disappointed. Our tour guide Frank was beyond excellent. He was there for all our needs. He was very informative about China & it’s history. His choices in Food were awesome. He was helpful in the language barrier when we needed it. We can’t say enough positive things about the whole experience.Kate F. Madison, WI

It was wonderful. We really enjoyed our vacation and I miss our tour group and tour guides.

Our drivers were excellent as well.Jennifer Jin K. Arlington
We have safely returned from the China Tour. All the facilities were excellent and tour guides, Chen, Li and Andy were good at their works. Chen was excellent and she had all the organized works done very well. The walking and waking-up early was tiring but the tours were enjoyable.Alexander S. Manchester, NH
It was wonderful and I must compliment our guide Jessica. She was marvelous...she kept us safe, we'll feed and informed. I can't compliment her any higher. The other guides were great also. All in all I feel like I've really done China!Charlene K. Atlanta, GA
Wonderful. Great value. Perfect for my goals- inexpensive and decent hotel/location. I do not need a full scale tour all the time. I am officially a fan!Reid D. Calabasas, CA
The trip was amazing! It was my first trip with Gate1 Travel ! And after this journey to China, I would go with Gate 1 again and again... Everything was organized very well. We got to see so many interesting places... Our guide was with group every minute, taking care of everything!!Olena K. Spring Valley, NY
Our trip was excellent, all our expectation were met, our tour manager Frank gave us all his time to feel safe and comfortable.Renee A. Port St Lucie, FL

It was a wonderful trip, my son loved it. Japan was a great country to visit.Sol T. Carteret, NJ
Thank you. My trip was amazing! I love Japan! I appreciated all of Gate 1's arrangements and hospitality.

Thank you again for making my trip one to remember.Alejandra L. Arleta, CA
Excellent!!!! The tour and our tour guides were far beyond our expectation! We had a great time! We'll definitely travel with Gate 1 again!Milena R. Alexandria, VA

We had a very good trip. Gate 1's organisation and service was excellent. No problems whatsoever. Mr Yuan, our tour guide in China was excellent and went beyond what we would have expected. I would gladly recommend Gate 1 to other prospective customers.Trevor C. Westbury, Australia
Our Gate 1 trip to china was absolutely amazing .... despite our group of four being the only Australians amongst many Americans. Everyone was really friendly and we all got on fabulously throughout the trip ... making many new friends across the globe. Maggie our tour guide was the ultimate host and tour guide!!! She was fantastic in every respect .... the perfect host with excellent communication and leadership skills. Without her knowledge, experience and dedication the holiday would not have been the same. She must be congratulated for her outstanding efforts above and beyond her role! The itinerary was fantastic and luckily for us the weather was perfect throughout. We visited some amazing places and seemingly Maggie had the ability to chose the right times to avoid the obvious crowds. The extra benefits provided for gate 1 passengers were much appreciated and added an extra touch to our great tour. Hotel accommodations could not be faulted with all modern, clean rooms provided. The cruise boat on the Yangtze also provided great rooms with lots of open decks to enjoy the scenery and a variety of things to do. The food was also outstanding throughout the trip... not only the great variety offered but always more than enough food for everyone. All in all ... A tremendous holiday and we will certainly be signing up for future holidays with Gate 1 Travel.Helen B. NSW, Australia
Our trip to China was amazing!!! Sam was an outstanding guide for a group of 38 people! He stayed calm and informative to our group throughout the entire trip!!! It was not an easy job but he handled everyone's Requests and questions with ease. He moved us through airports, hotels, temples, parks, short and long walks to excursions with no problems!!! Needless to say we have great memories of our trip to China due to our guides experience! We could not thank him enough throughout and it was sad to say good bye at the end! Thank you again Sam and Gate 1 for great memories!Cinda B. Woodbury, CT
Absolutely the best. China in and of itself is a beautiful country, but our Tour Coordinator, Yuan, made all the difference in creating the most memorable journey. He seemed to really care that his guests had the best time, and went extra miles to ensure that we did. He also provided rich context to our experience by sharing not only the history and cultural background but also his own candid perspectives. In all our travels, he is by far the best Tour Guide we have met and we truly feel privileged to have been among his guests.Regina C. Irvine, CA
An experience of a lifetime that was both cultural & educational, another words awesome! Our guide Louise was the best in more ways than I can put words to. We will definitely be considering Gate 1 for trips in our future based on an outstanding & expectation exceeding first time.John T. Weehawken, NJ
We had a great time. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. The hotels and food were excellent. The tour manager was outstanding. We look forward to taking another Gate 1 tour in the near future. Thanks for your help arranging the trip.Roseann L. Shelton, CT
Had a great time. And Frank, our tour manager, was outstanding. Air quality was a challenge, but that was to be expected.Butler B Jr. Detroit, MI
My trip was excellent! It was more than expected and I was well pleased on how well everything was coordinated and handled. Each tour guide was great and Frank our main guide was perfect. He was well versed with American "lingo" and on China's history and culture. The restaurants we ate in were amazing. Please know that Frank was so supportive in everything we asked of him and made the trip 10 times better. Also the hotels were great!Wanda F. Owens X Rds, AL
The trip to China was great, we enjoyed it very much, and we recommend it. Jack, the tour guide, was fantastic as well as the bus drivers, the tour guide assistants, the park, the choice of tours was great, the food, the hotels, everything was great and first class. Thank you very much.Alexander S Jr. San Diego, CA
Everything went well. The group had a great time and very impressed with Gate 1. Our tour guide Jason was excellent.Ermelo C. Petaluma, CA
Our trip was amazing! We had a fabulous time, and our guide, Jason, was awesome. We couldn't have asked for a better guide, tour or group. We have traveled with another much more expensive tour company in the past so we weren't sure what to expect with Gate 1, but you far exceeded our expectations. We definitely will travel with Gate 1 again.Dusty T. Elk Grove, CA
Our trip to China was fantastic! Gate 1 surpassed our expectations. Stone, our tour manager in China made our trip very enjoyable as well as educational. I will definitely be checking future vacations with Gate 1.Violeta P. Clifton, VA
Our trip was terrific. “Stone” was marvelous—articulate, knowledgeable, patient, well organized, upbeat/humorous at all times, attentive to everyone individually, and went above and beyond for us whenever possible. We saw so many amazing things. The river cruise was excellent, with great rooms, good food, and an outstanding staff. This trip was a super deal and we will certainly consider Gate 1 for future travel.David R Jr. Centreville, VA
The trip to China was excellent and enjoyable. The hotels in Beijing and Shanghai were in good locations and have provided good services. We were totally satisfied with your Gate 1 services. We will recommend to our friends and relatives for their vacations to use Gate 1 travel.Ali F. New Castle, DE
It was amazing! A great group leader and incredible excursions! I would do it again in a heart beat!Ruby C. Beaumont, CA
Gate 1 exceeded my expectations. Our Guide "Sam" and the local guides were professional, enthusiastic, and informed. The hotels were exceptional with great breakfasts. The Victoria Cruises Ship on the Yangtze was a treat. The flights on China Eastern were top quality. This was my first Gate1 trip. It won't be my last. I have already booked two more trips. A great trip, for a great value. Keep up the good work. It's appreciated.Russell P. Mantua, NJ
We had a great trip. Everything went smooth and we enjoyed every minute of Japan. We would use Gate 1 again for our next long trip.Mark M. Millani, HI
It was incredible! We saw several bucket list sites including the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, and Terracotta Warriors. We will never forget China. Thank you for your help in putting everything together.Jerod C. Wilmington, NC
The trip to China was excellent, and our tour manager, Frank, was the best manager I have ever had with Gate 1. He is what made our tour very exceptional. He did everything he could to make our experience really exceptional. I will never forget his many thoughtful kindnesses.Carol S. Alexandria, VA
Thank you so much for putting together such a wonderful adventure for me and my partner. It was better than i expected. The guide that u blessed us with was fantastic. Joan made sure that ever thing that we needed was taken care of. No one worked harder for us during this trip. I can't say enough about her and the accommodations that we had. I can't wait to take another trip and I will definitely use Gate 1 again. It was WONDERFUL!!!Beverly C. Hyde Park, MA
The trip was awesome. All the guides were very friendly and knowledgable. Tokyo and China both showed their uniqueness in cultures and struggles in daily life. The people were all very welcoming esp. Chinese people. I will highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting a taste of both countries as there is just too much to see in 2 weeks. Thanks again for putting together another wonderful trip.Manuel O Jr. Sun City West, AZ
Totally amazing!!! Gate 1 is 5 plus star!!! Can't think of anything not done to the utmost! Hotels, restaurants, transportation, excursions all amazing!! Local guides and Frank, our tour guide absolutely great!! Thanks so much!!Billy M Jr. Fredericksbrg, VA
Our trip was wonderful. It was very well organized. Every detail was looked after by Gate 1 and our tour director and local guides. Truly enjoyed all the sights, the food, the cruise, the accommodations and the other travelers in our tour group. Would definitely book with Gate 1 again in the future.Michele R. Uppr Marlboro, MD
The trip to China was an absolute winner! The guides ( especially Ahwen and Jenny) were terrific, points of interest and scenery outstanding. I especially loved the giant pandas and cruising the Yangtze ( a childhood dream come true). The meals were excellent and our group loved being introduced to rice-stuffed baked pumpkin. The acrobat evening show was awesome. This was my first Gate1Travel trip and I hope it will be the first of MANY. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for making this all happen!Judith P. Lawrence, NY
The trip was great! As always (all Gate 1 tours that I have been on) it was very well organized, with a very interesting itinerary, very knowledgeable tour guides (tour manager as well as local tour guides), good hotels, delicious food. Thank you to Gate 1 and all of you!Elena B. Worcester, MA
It was absolutely amazing!!! The entire vacation package process was so smooth, there were absolutely no issues that we ran into. We will be using Gate 1 for every annual trip that we take from now on. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience. It was simply wonderful!Buddi B. Titusville, FL
The trip was AWESOME, thanks to Stone, our guide...he's the best. The tour was great because of his abilities to foresee and plan accordingly to any potential needs of the guests. I highly recommend him to be a permanent part of Gate 1 in that part of the world! It would be your loss if you don't.Nestor B Jr. Jacksonville, FL
We traveled with Gate 1 on the 12 day China with Chengdu. This was our 12th Gate 1 trip! As usual Gate 1 took care of everything. Maggie, our tour manager was outstanding! She was always available for questions we had. I enjoyed her sense of humor. We took advantage of all 4 optional tours. We particularly liked the Tang Dynasty show and the acrobatic show in Shanghai! The intra China flights were a breeze. Baggage handled, boarding passes handed out without waiting in line at the airports! I was particularly impressed that a Gate 1 representative met us at the Shanghai airport when we were flying back to the states. Gloria was helpful guiding us through the checkin counter. We were able to experience China through the people, places, food, and stories! Thank you Gate 1!Rose M. San Antonio, TX
