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
We had a very good experience on the trip. Very fascinating countries. The tour guides were excellent and our group was wonderful. Cannot ask for more. I will recommend to my friendsMats P. Woodland Hls, CA
Absolutely wonderful! All the services were great, every place we stayed at was hospitable, and our tour guide, Panya, was amazing! He really helped to make the trip great, by showing us all kinds of interesting things, teaching us about Thai culture, and just making sure everything went smoothly! I have already recommend this tour to friends.Alexandra W. Hillsborough, NJ
The trip to Thailand and Cambodia was a wonderful adventure. Everyday was filled with amazing adventures beyond our imaginations! We loved Anil, our guide.Kathleen S. Cockeysville, MD
We had a wonderful tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. The tour was superbly organized, we had great food and centrally located hotels. Our tour manager offered many helpful suggestions about local restaurants and attractions. The group dynamics was probably the best I've experienced on any tour. We had a lot of fun and look forward to our next tour with Gate 1.Lisa S. Walnut Creek, CA
My wife Lauren and I just finished our March 2017 16 Day Classic tour of Thailand. We chose Thailand for our honeymoon and it exceeded our expectations! Most people asked us, "Why Thailand?" Well, why not Thailand?! We are so absolutely grateful for this beautiful honeymoon and Tuk, our tour guide, was so gracious!! Tuk is very personable, knowledgeable about her country, extremely comical and loving, and has a deep passion for her country/Buddhism. If I could give her five stars on this form I definitely would!!! I will never forget her and we are definitely looking to book our next Gate 1 Travel destination. All the hotels we stayed in were absolutely beautiful and comfortable. We also visited a school and gave children school supplies. One of our favorite times was when we visited a Thai family at their beautiful home made all of teakwood and they made us a delicious dinner. Such great hospitality!! We literally could not have done this vacation on our own. Gate 1 Travel is truly hassle-free, worry-free and provides the best of everything for their customers!!!! We could not have had such a great experience without the experience and professionalism of our tour guide. Tuk went above and beyond to not only make sure we had an enjoyable experience but had fun. Our group was constantly laughing and carrying on. My wife hurt her hand on the trip and Tuk made sure we got the right supplies to help heal her up quickly. Customer service was fantastic. We are looking forward to booming our next trip with Gate 1. Thanks!Derek G. San Antonio, TX
The trip to Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia was great. The tour director and local guides were endless fonts of knowledge about their countries. They all seemed to go "the extra mile" to ensure that we were seeing what we came to see and having a good time. Moreover, Gate 1's selections of hotels is amazing. We will definitely be traveling more with Gate 1 in the future.Richard R. McLean, VA
The trip was excellent. Could not ask for more for the price. Our tour guide, Dang, went out of his way to make the tours more pleasant and interesting. Will definitely recommend Gate 1 to our friends and family and will look to Gate 1 for our next trip to India.Joseph S. San Francisco, CA
I can't say enough good things about our trip, Vietnam was a wonderful experience. Our Tour Manager Mr. Trong was top notch, tons of fun, educational, and very easy to talk to. My wife and I love the guy! You will definitely get repeat business with us in the near future and we haven't stopped talking about the trip to our friends and family. Thank you for taking care of us and taking the guess work out of the trip. Looking forward to the next one!James L Jr. Apo, MH
It was EXCELLENT. Our guide was Tu. He took the time to explain not only the sights, but the Vietnamese culture and was extremely diplomatic when explaining the differences in culture between the US and Vietnam. He made us feel very comfortable and was there whenever we needed him. This was our first Gate 1 tour, but based on our experience, it won't be the last. Our friend is taking the same tour in April and we hope she has Tu as a guide.Walter C. Golden, CO
We had a wonderful trip to Thailand. Everything was perfect - beautiful lodging in every location, delicious food, and, most importantly, a great travel guide Keow. We will look to Gate 1 again when we next tour.Toni C. Salt Lake City, UT
Amazing! Our guide, Panya, was the best. Attention to detail at every turn. Once in a lifetime opportunities! Already booked our next Gate 1 trip for May!Jamie S. Mason, OH
Lift was a wonderful tour guide. She always kept us well informed of customs and laws governing each and every site visit. Our Bus Boy was the best of the best. The driver was excellent. He was safe caring for our comfort. I would highly recommend Gate 1 for any tour.Llyod A. Baytown, TX
Excellent! It exceeded all our expectations. Our guide, Dang, did a wonderful job and went far out of his way to accommodate everyone. I can't say enough good things about him. This was our first Gate 1 tour. I will definitely use you guys again in the future.Jon M. San Jose, CA
Trip was wonderful. Guide was excellent. Accommodations were great.Joyce W. Conventry, CT
Our trip (there were 5 ladies traveling together) was amazing! Our tour director, Uza, was outstanding, the best tour director we have had! She made sure we had time with the local people and experienced so much more than we had expected. We didn't just see temples and palaces! The time we spent at the school in Thailand was such a highlight as well! The children of the school, teachers, administrators were so gracious and excited to have us come spend time with the children. It was great! The accommodations were just superb, so very nice and each one so different. The most exciting was the River Kwai Resortel. What fun to ride the long tail boat up the river into the jungle!! The bus driver (Mr. Sak) and Uza's helper Kit were just awesome! Mr. Sak handled that big Gate 1 bus with ease through the crowded streets in all the cities. And Kit? he was at our finger tips every time we got on or off the bus. He saw to it we had fresh water, hand wipes, candy and even fresh local fruit. Always had a smile for us and ready to serve us in any manner to make our trip as comfortable as possible. It was a really great trip! Thank you!Cheryl F. Granbury, TX
The trip was amazing. Our tour guide Ya was terrific, the hotels were wonderful. I loved the food, the massages, the trip to Phi Phi Island, the home hosted dinner and the day with the elephants. The people of Thailand are so nice and friendly. Always smiling and very welcoming. It is a trip that I have wanted to take for a long time and it was everything I hoped for and more. As usual, Gate 1 did a fantastic job.Gail M. Yaphank, NY
One of the best ever. The guide was very knowledgeable about Vietnam and proud of his country. He offered an extra small trip on his own time that was not part of the itinerary. He spent time making sure my wife could keep up with the group. He was often available in the lobby to answer questions. This was my 3rd trip to Vienam and I learned many new facts that I had not known before.Kerry S. Rescue, CA
I had a wonderful trip to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. The services and the tour guides were great and helpful. They all did an excellent job to make our trip interesting, comfortable and safe. Tour guides Buff (Vietnam) and Tok (Thailand) performed good services throughout the journey and I am pleased with their hard work. I will definitely use Gate 1 again in my future travels.Jenny L. Vancouver, Canada
Fantastic! We really enjoyed the tour, including meeting so many nice people. Our tour guide, Panya, was very knowledgeable & took very good care of us. He not only showed us the historical sites on the itinerary, but a number of local stops as well so we really got a good sense of the present day cultures & people. The hotels & meals were excellent, too! All in all a very memorable trip & I'm sure we'll book another Gate 1 tour in the future. Now we just have to get over our jetlag!Judith T. Rohnert Park, CA
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and have done nothing but sing the praises of Gate 1 Travel to everyone we've spoken to. Will certainly be using you again. Also had great feedback from our fellow US travelling companions.Sandra K. NSW, Australia
My trip was fantastic! I am extremely pleased with Gate 1. The organization, follow-through, communication and planning. I hope to take more trips with Gate 1 in the future.Yael E. Riverview, FL
Our trip was fabulous! Gate 1 was very attentive and met all of our needs. We loved our tour manager Vit! He was very knowledgeable of Thailand and very interested in making sure we had a great time! He made the trip fun and was attentive to all 30 members of our group. This was our first time with Gate 1 travel and we will definitely use this company again. We will also recommend Gate 1 travel to others as well.Please make sure Vit knows how pleased we were with his work and making sure we all had a great time. Leo and Kwan, our bus driver and assistant were also awesome. Leo drove that huge bus safely in the big cities of Thailand and Kwan was always there to make sure we got off the bus safely and had hand wipes for us. We thought the people of Thailand were friendly and welcoming!!! We can not wait for our next Gate 1 trip!Diana B. Pinckney, MI
Another excellent trip! My vacation in Thailand was about my 12th trip with Gate 1, and they just seem to be getting better each time. Our tour Manager, Vit was one of the best. Very knowledgable, organized, and genuinely caring. He did a great job of keeping us all together like one happy family. I was particularly impressed with the hotels on this trip. Gate 1 has always done a good job with hotels in my experience - but in Thailand each one was outstanding.Lucilla T. Tallahassee, FL
