Our trip to Thailand, Laos and Cambodia was amazing. We enjoyed every minute, and we're very happy with the Gate 1 services offered.Anita Z. Montreal, QC, CA
It was super! Our guide, Hai, was terrific and the scenery and sights were great! Thanks for asking.Anne J. Haddon Hgts, NJ
We absolutely loved the trip and our guide, Voeng, was fantastic. I consider this the best vacation I have ever been on an we learned a lot about their culture.Dean R. Cpe Girardeau, MO
It was fabulous, better than my first time to Vietnam in 2006. Weather was great, food was amazing, hotels were wonderful, and we had a superior tour guide, Tho. Learned so much more than expected from him sharing knowledge of his culture, history, places we visited, economics, religion, education, health and social issues. The country has really grown in number of buildings, motor cycles, population, and cost. Many more tourists, including our group of 33, who are experienced travelers and enjoyed Gate 1 frequent times. Many plan to go other places in the future soon, including me.Sandra J. San Francisco, CA
Excellent...our guide was especially good and helpful.Jonathan M. Davis Town, NSW, AU
Tuyan was a terrific tour guide. This was my 8th Gate 1 trip and he was the best. Very knowledgeable and engaging. I think he showed some of Vietnam most tourists don't see. Also visiting some of those places I remember hearing about during Vietnam war helped me put some things in perspective. The food and shopping were great too. Especially enjoyed Angkor Wat, Saigon, the tunnels, Hoi An and Hue, but everything was interesting and fun. I went on all the optional tours. We had a good group of travelers too.Anne M. Crofton, MD
Trip was excellent. Tour managers were very competent, knowledgeable of their country history and culture answering any questions we might have. Hotels, restaurants and food served were very good. Optional tours well organized and interesting places to see. As always, Gate 1 offered excellent customer services.Irma L. San Juan, PR
It was fantastic. The Countries we visited, the Tours, food, and especially, the tour guides were outstanding. We will definitely consider Gate 1 for our next trip.Mike M. Castle Pines, CO
Trip to Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia was excellent. The tour manager "Ranee" was outstanding, very caring, and helpful during all 18 days trip. She worked closely with local tour guides in Laos and Cambodia and stayed on top if there was any deviation than scheduled tours.Vikram P. Bloomfield, MI
We had an excellent time. It was a "life experience" as we didn't know what to expect and were amazed at the poverty but beauty in Myanmar. I wanted to give a shout-out for our guide - Mojo. He was fantastic. He never stopped helping us out and kept things organized. We have been on a few Gate1 trips and in most cases there is a lead and a local guide. Mojo did both. In addition, he also ensured that at restaurants that the staff were informed as to what to do. He told me that the staff at restaurants don't always get the right training, so he took charge and made sure we were taken care of. I just wanted to make sure he was recognized because without him, the trip would not have been as enjoyable. We will definitely keep traveling with Gate1 as this is a great organization and the trips are fantastic!!!Heidi L. Austin, TX
We had a great trip! We had a very good tour manager, very knowledgeable local guides and a great group of people to travel with. We were thrilled at the opportunity to learn about and experience the rich history and culture of the places we visited. We enjoyed the hotels we stayed at, the accommodation at Luang Prabang was particularly impressive. We liked the experience of trying many different kinds of food with the exception of a few dishes. All in all, it was a very memorable trip.Soham D. San Carlos, CA
Vietnam and Cambodia was my best Gate 1 trip ever!!! My tour manager, Tran, and group were fantastic. Angkor War and Halong Bay were the main reasons I booked this trip and they exceeded my expectations.I enjoyed learning the history, interacting with the people and trying the regional dishes of Vietnam and Cambodia. I look forward to booking my next trip with you.Esther N. Los Angeles, CA
My trip was wonderful! All the guides were excellent but I feel like Tran went above and beyond to make sure that everyone had a great experience. (That can't be easy with such a large group!). I would gladly recommend this tour to anyone.Merry M. Cary, NC
Excellent tour!, Our tour guide for Thailand, Laos and Cambodia (Lift) worked hard to ensure everything went smoothly. In Vietnam (Duc) did a superb job as our guide. This tour covered all the highlights that We wanted to see in SE Asia.Robert K. Seabeck, WA
I found my new "favorite place" to travel in Viet Nam! For absolute sure, our guide Mr. Thang (Victor), made this a most memorable trip. His knowledge and passion to tell the stories/history of Viet Nam is unsurpassed. He is by far the best tour guide I have ever experienced. His attention to detail and kind, compassionate concern for every guest on the trip was amazing. The country is beautiful and I found the people most welcoming and courteous. The amount of land covered and the sites we visited were a wonderful mix of adventures. Outstanding trip and all the better with the expert guide provided by Gate I.Lynnette J. Junction City, KS
Burma was all that Kipling wrote about and more. Each day was an adventure, that will be a memory forever. Our guide "MoJo" was a bonus for us all, as his fountain of knowledge, pride in his country, was shared with a warm smile, and contagious laugh. The hotels in Myanmar were each special, and the Lotte will soon become a Grand Hotel like those in Banff & Jasper, Canada. Still recovering from 27 hour flight home...but wonderful memories dance in our heads.Earl M. Minneapolis, MN
Our trip to Thailand, Cambodia, and Viet Nam was great. Customer Service, thumbs up. Several weeks before the trip, I talked with one of you agents concerning a change in our flight schedule. She was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the wide range of activities. Besides so many interesting places/things to see, I especially enjoyed the activities, such as boat trips, and the Ox Cart trip. Arrangements, the whole trip was well organized. I enjoyed the Add-on trips, and the choice to take them, or stay back and relax. Everyone we met/came in contact with, were very friendly, courteous, and helpful, including the Bus Drivers and Assistants, Hotel and Restaurant Staff, and Shop Keepers...The guides, Cambodia Sang was not only skilled at giving us information, but he was also so cheerful and friendly. Viet Nam Tommy What can I say. He was alway thoughtful, caring, cheerful, unflappable and flexible. Nothing seems to upset him. He was flexible, which, I believe added to our experience. Both sang and Tommy offered a wealth of information. What I have brought back, besides sights and experiences, is is all this information about culture, history, politics, religion, etc. I learned so much, and it enriched the whole experience. Would I recommend Gate 1 and this tour to others, yes. Would I consider traveling again with Gate 1, yes.Jill L. Duluth, MN
Our trip to Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia was fabulous! The itinerary was well thought out. Our tour guide, Vit, made it educational and fun. He guided us with ease, introduced us to new things, never lost patience, was kind, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile. Vit is a treasure. I can't believe we got so much for such a great price!Mary C. Brookfield, WI
It was fantastic! Indonesia is a fascinating country culturally, historically, geographically, gastronomically, and above all in hospitality. Gate 1 exceeded our expectations--our tour director Cika was a 15 on a 1 to 10 scale--what a resource for Indonesian cultural, historic, religious, political, and social/local customs. He takes great pride in his country and in representing Gate 1. Hotel in Ubud sat in the middle of rice patties and was the most beautiful and exotic place I've ever stayed. The group was very culturally diverse which added to the overall experience too. Gate 1 Discovery Tour experience set a new standard of excellence for us and we are hoping to visit Ireland in the Fall with a DT.Sue D. Stockton, CA
The trip was excellent, and specially the tour guide was awesome and highly knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. We had great time.Ketan B. Darien, IL
Trip went off without a hitch. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in Vietnam and look forward to booking another guided trip (this was our first). The tour guide was excellent and gave us valuable insight into Vietnamese culture.Nathan T. Miami, FL
The trip was wonderful. The hotels were beautiful and comfortable. The tour bus was clean and our tour leader, Shaukani (Sean) was the best. Sean was knowledgeable, patient and funny. Best of all he knew how to deal with a large diversified group of Americans. In my book Gate 1 did it again, an excellent adventure for the money!Linda P. Middle Vlg, NY
Our trip was fabulous, with a great tour manager in making our visit interesting, educational, and memorable, as well as meeting a great group of people on the trip. We have been traveling with Gate 1 for many years with great pleasure and this trip to Vietnam fully met our expectation.Hou Tak C. Manville, IL
Our trip was fantastic. To experience the culture and the dynamic of life in Vietnam was truly a life enriching experience. The cities were vibrant and bustling, the outlying village tour was a great gateway into the lives of the common Vietnamese way of life. Halong Bay boat trip and cave adventure was truly amazing. The food was fantastic the accommodations were great and our guide (although a little too politically focused) was very good. I would recommend this trip for anyone who is looking to experience other cultures around the world. The Vietnamese people were very friendly and engaging and eager to share their way of life with us. The host family for the dinner were such great hosts and really gave us an insight into the common family way of life. Overall a great trip and well worth the time, effort and expense.Geoffrey W. Toledo, OH
Wonderful, as always. We loved Thailand and the great job of planning and executing the trip by Gate1! Thanks!Charles U. Hot Springs, AR
Fantastic, loved, loved, loved it. Tom was a great tour guide and he showed us the real Vietnam. He took care of all our needs and was easy going and funny and also informative. That is exactly why I like Gate1 1 Travel and I always recommend it wherever I go.Veronica M. Atlanta, GA
The trip was great and I enjoyed every aspect of what Gate 1 had to offer. You may remember my appreciation for your professionalism expressed to you personally before we departed and I have to say this professionalism continued throughout the holiday. Every step of the trip worked like clockwork and everyone from the tour guide through to the drivers and support staff were outstanding. The tours, locations and cultural information were also outstanding as were the hotels, meals, and little extras thrown in by our excellent tour guide Nu. I would not hesitate to recommend Gate 1 to my friends and would love to travel with Gate 1 again for my next holiday.Margaret F. NSW, Australia
Everything was amazing! Every detail was adhered to impeccably. Nu did a fantastic job- we can't say enough positive things about him! Having Nu as our tour guide really contributed towards us having an overall incredible experience. The level of professionalism & knowledge Nu displayed was exemplary. I've already recommended Gate 1 to several family, friends, & co-workers.Gustavo T. Aliso Viejo, CA
My trip to Thailand cannot be expressed in words. Not only did my son and I enjoy the beautiful sights Thailand has to offer but we experienced outstanding first class customer service provided by our Tour Manager Tuk. She ensured that were were comfortably taken care of and that we were consistently engaged with every excursion. We truly felt like family. She shared her love of history and with enthusiasm. We sincerely could not have had a better host to this country. She went out of her way to share stories, provide surprises, and make us laugh along our tour. Many times she put herself last to ensure that we were taken care of first and foremost. Tuk was amazing, kind, caring, and energetic! The value of this trip was superber. We will return soon with your company.Adriana I. Round Rock, TX
It was great. The guide was very good, the hotels were 1st class, and tours were wonderful.Calvin H. Columbus, OH
My trip was AMAZING!!! This is my third trip with Gate 1 and I sing your praises everywhere I go. I am so impressed by your company! Southeast Asia was awesome and per usual, we had a wonderful tour guide! Udom was do wonderful and he took great care of us. I look forward to many more trips with your company. I brought a friend who had never done a tour before and he too was so impressed with the experience!Marianne T. Hyde Park, MA
One of my favorite trips! Exceptional food and itinerary. Udom, our guide, is one of the hardest-working, dedicated, knowledgeable, caring tour guides I've ever had. He truly deserves a raise. Other than a lost luggage for a day, everything went smoothly. I look forward to my 9th trip with Gate 1 next summer.Marie P. Ontario, Canada
Absolutely fabulous. Everything went very smooth and Duc was a great tour guide. I have already recommended Gate 1 to all my friends. Looking forward to traveling with you again. Thank you so much.Cecelia F. S Pasadena, CA
My third trip to Vietnam but first organised tour. I am so glad I chose Gate 1 Travel. The tour had just the right content. The optional tours were great and there was still time to do your own thing. Dang was my tour guide and he is absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I learnt so much from him. I met some amazing people - most of them had used Gate 1 previously, one group it was their 13th Gate 1 tour. That says so much about your company. I am looking forward to travelling with you again. Well done Gate 1 Travel!Karen C. Queensland, Australia
We have been on a number of tours both with Gate 1 and with other tour companies. We have to say this was by far the best trip we have taken, well organised, accommodation was all top end, sight see well-spaced and country specific. We would also like to complement our tour guide Tommy. He went out of his way to make the tour special for everyone and took extra time to ensure everything was perfect for those touring. Thanks for such a wonderful trip, we will definitely be visiting Vietnam and touring with Gate 1 again in the near future.Ronald L. Mindarie, Australia
This was hands down the best travel experience I have ever had. I loved every aspect of the trip. The hotels were immaculate and wonderful in every way. The tour guide, Steven, was so knowledgable and pleasant. He really made the trip perfect and took it to the next level by really going out of his way to make sure that everyone had a great time. He really got to know each person on the trip and was full of information! The bus driver and bus assistant were amazing as well. I have never seen anyone drive a bus as big as the Gate 1 bus with as much skill as our driver, and it was great to feel safe in his capable hands. The bus assistant made sure each person on the trip had water, snacks, and was just a pleasure to be around in general. The bus itself was kept very clean and tidy, and it was very comfortable. The activities and excursions of the trip were absolutely thrilling and well planned. I cannot begin to articulate how happy I am to have gone on this trip and how fantastic of a job Gate 1 Travel did with planning it out, from beginning to end. This was my first Gate 1 trip, and because of the fantastic experience I had, it definitely won't be my last!Chelsea B. Oxford, MS
My trip was wonderful and even better than I expected. Tran, our tour guide, was incredible! His knowledge of history was impressive and I learned a lot about S.E. Asia in general and, of course, Vietnam in particular. If I had to rate him on a scale from 1 - 10, he would be a 10, as would Gate 1. The hotels were excellent, the food fabulous and I enjoyed all of the sites. My favorite city was Hue, but all of them were fascinating. Congrats to Gate 1!Mary D. Phoenix, AZ
Excellent. Had a great time. Good company and the accommodations and food were very good. The itinerary? was interesting and educational. Our tour guide did a wonderful job. I would recommend this Gate 1 package to anyone wanting a real value for money tour of Thailand.Christopher D. Victoria, Australia
We had a fun time and good experience. We felt safe all throughout our time in Vietnam. All the hotels were very good and the breakfasts were excellent. Most specially, our tour guide (Tuan) was very attentive to our needs and full of important information. We highly recommend this tour as well as using Gate 1 Travel to our friends.Bernardo F. Anaheim, CA
What a wonderful trip. Never had rain; sunshine every day. Vietnam is beautiful. I never imagined it would be so exciting. Our tour guide made the whole trip perfect. He was Dang. He made a point to know and understand each individual in the group. He kept referring to us as his family and he was successful. We all felt a part of the tour. Each place we visited offered a different perspective of the country. Fun,fun,fun! I was so pleased that Gate 1 offers this perfect journey.Priscilla M. Westbrook, CT
We had a wonderful time despite the extremely hot and humid weather in Thailand during our visit. First class tour manager (Usa) who was wonderful and funny, bus driver & helper, absolutely fantastic accommodations and a very fine group of people. All went smoothly and we appreciate Gate 1's efforts in making our trip a memorable one!David A. Aurora, CO
Our trip was great thank you. Everything was so well organised and ran like clockwork and a lot of it was thanks to our tour guide Tho. He was absolutely fantastic and worked with us above and beyond anything we expected. He was amazing and very informative.Margaret L. NSW, Australia
We greatly enjoyed our trip to Vietnam with Gate 1. Our guide Vu was so informative and helped us to learn so much about this fascinating country and its history. Thank you!Heidy H. Palm Springs, CA
It was a good trip. This was my first experience with Gate 1 and both my husband and myself feel your agency is a more superior company than who we went with before. Really considerate tour director and careful choice of hotels. The only disadvantage is due to currency exchange, we feel prices is a little high especially we are from the west coast. We hope to use your company again down the road.Cecilia T. British Columbia, Canada
My trip to Thailand was fantastic! I love the flexibility of an independent tour! My travel mate & I had more time to explore & shop on our own. I will definitely look more into independent travel packages. Tuk, our tour guide, was terrific! She escorted us on 2 half day tours. She was knowledgeable, down to earth & kind. She made sure we were ok by checking in with us periodically on the days she didn't escort us, she was never overbearing. She showed us points of interest on the map & advised us on how to use public transit. She gave us her number in case we needed anything, but we were fine. My friend & I would definitely return to Bangkok!Jennifer W. Pacifica, CA
The Vietnam trip was awesome. The itinerary, the structures, the towns and cities offered excellent opportunities to see how the Vietnamese live and work. This was my second trip to Vietnam and provided many new discoveries. Our trip leader, Cong (goes by Duc), was outstanding in all respects. I have been on many tours with many tour companies and tour guides, but DUC was the best. I would love to take a tour with him again. He is one of a kind. All the logistics and activities--hotels, meals, transportation, sightseeing, etc. were excellent also.Lester F Jr. Boylston, MA
It was awesome! We had great tour guides. Both Tu and Ray were excellent. Great weather and so much fun. Gate 1 has done a great job once again. The hotels were terrific the food delicious and enjoyed the whole entire experience. Everything was coordinated nicely between the two tours. Thanks for all of your help.Constantine M. Hartland, WI
AWESOME!! I loved Bangkok and our hotel was in a very good location. Thank you for always making my trips so easy and enjoyable.Rosario P. San Luis, AZ
The trip was great! We enjoyed this trip to Thailand so much. Breakfasts at hotels were good. We love the tour guide, Mr. Todd. His knowledge and service was excellent. We will recommend Gate 1 Travel to our friends.Thong H. Avondale, AZ
