Thank you for asking! The trip was first class! We were met at the airport by wonderful Stella who made our settling in the hotel smooth and easy. Same evening we met our tour guide, Demetra, whose warm welcome and introduction set the tone for the trip. Demetra deserves the highest marks for her work. She is highly skilled professional, very personable and outgoing. She is so well organized, that our experience felt seamless and effortless. We have visited amazing places, learned a lot about Greek history, culture, and traditions. We stayed in the big city and visited small places, got introduction to the islands. The tour was very well balanced and left us wishing it was longer. We will wholeheartedly recommend this tour to our friends and acquaintances.Tamara Z. Princeton Jct, NJ
The trip was fantastic!! We were very pleased with the choice of hotels in Athens, Olympia and Delphi, and the meals we were served were fantastic. Our three-day bus tour was nothing less than outstanding--beginning with a touring bus that was top-tier, and topped off with a guide who was deeply knowledgeable and extremely gracious. Ana's intelligent and vividly descriptive dialogue pertaining to the history of the sites we visited was informative and entertaining. Seriously, she was a walking encyclopedia. As usual, Gate 1 Travel went the extra mile with this package and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have had the pleasure of experiencing Greece in this manner. Thanks for a great trip!Frank L. Shawnee, KS
Another outstanding trip with Gate 1 Travel. Itinerary and Program Director were excellent.Joseph V. Enfield, CT
Had a wonderful time. Hotels were lovely, food was delicious, and our tour guide, Melitsia was absolutely superb. She was organized, thoughtful, informative, and fun!Robert W. Plymouth, MI
The trip was a complete success, beyond fantastic. In my opinion, this is the time of the year to visit Greece. The weather is ok, the crowds are low. I loved the trip and the guide was the best ever.Rodger W. Narrows, VA
I can't begin to describe the amazing time my family and I had...The experience was wonderful. From the airline, to the hotels and tours. Fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide in Elena Gaitani. She is so engaging and made you feel like you were a part of history. We loved her. The value was beyond anything. Thank you so much to Gate 1 for giving families like mine the opportunity to travel the world together at such an unbeatable price...thank you for the unforgettable memories.Iliana D. Bronx, NY
It was wonderful. Everything was perfect and we had a wonderful time. Our tour guide Elena was the best I have ever had. She is so informed, so passionate and brilliant. I would go on any trip again with her as my guide. Hotels were in great locations and all the Gate 1 employees were so helpful and caring. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. Will see u again soon.....Starlene C. Howard Beach, NY
Our trip to Greece was just amazing from beginning to end!!!! We all really loved it!! Our guide Elena was beyond amazing!!! Her knowledge and love for her country was so wonderful!! My daughter who is 15 came with and just found everything to be just great! She didn’t want to leave!! Now we are planning our next Gate 1 trip!!! Thank you again to all who made our trip outstanding!! OPA!!Kristina O. Fiskdale, MA
So much fun! What a fantastic country to visit. The tour guide, Vivian, was so knowledgeable. It was like having a class in Greek mythology and archaeology taught by a PHD. She was also super at keeping the tour moving on schedule and coordinating all the facets of the trip. I highly recommend this tour, Vivian, and Gate 1.Keith G. Arvada, CO
The total experience was excellent/outstanding, the Gate1 Travel personnel made the experience excellent/outstanding. I can not speak highly enough about the Gate 1 personnel, they are the best.Frank S. Smock, PA
Our trip was wonderful! The places we visited were amazing, the tour guide was unbelievably informative, interesting, and pleasant, and the "extras" that were provided were gratefully appreciated. Thank you your company for providing such excellent servicesBob B. Bethany Beach, DE
First time with Gate 1 and we are glad we did. Tour manager, Maria, is very knowledgeable and did an excellent job of providing historic and cultural information relevant to the tour. The itinerary is well paced and we learned a lot about Greece by the end of the week.Po Leung Y. Bolivar, MO
The trip was GREAT! Please note our tour guide, Maria, was absolutely awesome. Everything was well time and well paced, and our tour guide provided a wealth of information throughout. Thorough yet easy to manage all of the history and anecdotes. Please give her and our tour bus operator, Socrates, the highest marks possible. A+++Phil M. Yonkers, NY
The trip to Greece was great. A lot of history and historic sights. Our tour guide Militsia was very good.Mark M. Whitmore Lake, MI
Great! All went well. Our tour guide was wonderful, the scenery was beautiful, the weather was ideal and the food was fantastic!Catherine M. Ft Washington, PA
The trip was wonderful! The tour was well-planned which allowed us not only gain insights of Greek history, but also the cultures via dancing, cooking and foods. The tour manager, Demetra was extremely knowledgeable, and caring!! My family and I had a fabulous time!Chia H. Oakland Gdns, NY
It was fantastic!!! Our guide Eleni was the best guide I have ever had! The hotels and food were good, the tours were great. It was wonderful value for the money! I love Greece and the tour gave us a good introduction to that beautiful country. Thanks, we are already planning our next trip!Michelle S. Castleton, NY
Fantastic! We were truly impressed with the quality and experiences, but mostly, our guide, Eugene Alexiou, made our trip special. She is the most knowledgeable guide we have worked with plus a very sweet and kind person. Hold on to her!Gail S. Hilton Head, SC
Our trip to Greece was wonderful. Our Gate 1 guide, Elena, was probably the best we've ever had. The scenery was spectacular, the food was delicious and Gate 1 took care of everything for us. It made the whole week more relaxing since Elena took care of all the details. This was our first trip with Gate 1 but it certainly won't be our last.Carole M. Neptune Beach, FL
It was a great trip. Combining the land tour with the cruise was a great idea; see it all while we were there. Both of the guides were really good; Panos was so fun and Maria was almost as good as Nam (our first guide with Gate 1, in Turkey. He set the bar really high as he was so phenomenal). Greece is wonderful, the islands beautiful, the country magical in it's mythology and ancient ruins. We look forward to our next trip in December to India/Nepal. Thanks again for all you've done for us.Scott C. Banner Elk, NC
It was nice! The trip was better than I thought it would be. It provided a good overview of Greece and Greek history. I like that Gate 1 is efficient for the traveler. No waiting in lines and getting to the interesting sites early in the morning so that it is uncrowded and before it gets too hot. We were able to probably do 50% more in the same amount of time over trying to coordinate everything on our own. I was pleased with the ship as well, "Olympia". The food was on par with other cruise ships of that category/hotels and the bar service through out the ship was the very best that I have experienced and this was my 60th cruise. Also liked all the specialty coffee choices and bottled water being included as well as drinks and soda. The hotels were all very nice and in good locations. All the Gate 1 representatives and guides did a real good job. I would rate this Greece trip and the trip that we took to Croatia with Gate 1 as top rated for our vacation experiences. Looking forward now to that Morocco trip. I would recommend to other travelers to take the additional excursions offered by Gate 1 and what they offered at the ship with Gate 1 representative. It leaves you feeling that you saw and did all that you could possibly do in a very short time frame, especially if the budget only allows for one trip to those locations in a lifetime. I would encourage other travelers to take the trips while they are still young because the amount of energy needed could be demanding. A lot of stairs, hills, uneven surfaces and hot weather.Gary S. Woodway, TX
It was absolutely amazing and magical! We loved Greece! This was our first time traveling with gate 1 and so happy we choose your company!! Our tour guide for the 4 day classical -- Eugenia was wonderful! We look forward to traveling again in the near future!Cindy L. Los Angeles, CA
Our trip was awesome! Greece is a beautiful country with so much history. We are so happy to have traveled with Gate 1- each time we dealt with a Gate 1 rep, we were impressed. Each tour guide was knowledgeable, each pick up or transfer was timely and friendly- we couldn’t be happier. Thanks for your help planning this trip!Maureen C. Parsippany, NJ
We had a wonderful time in Greece! Our tour guide on the 4-day tour of the mainland was excellent; very helpful & knowledgeable and when I was a bit under the weather, she was most kind. The hotels we stayed at, especially in Athens, Santorini & Mykonos, were excellent, well located, with wonderful staff. We were very impressed with the overall experience provided us by Gate 1.Kathleen G. White Plains, NY
The most wonderful experience ever. The guides were amazing from beginning to end. The bus driver had impeccable skills! Plane both ways amazing. Great service. The meals were outrageously delicious.Linda B. Bowie, MD
Your tour guides were excellent - and I really appreciated Vivian - being an archeologist gave us additional insights and information of the ruins. She kept the group together and on time. Gave us options of what to do. Let us know ahead of time what would be strenuous to walk/hike. Made sure that we were the first or one of the first groups at a site so we would finish the tour before it got too hot outside. And our driver - I don't know how he was able to back up or turn so easily on some of those roads! Overall an excellent trip. And this tour even pleased my teenage daughter. That is tough at this age!Karen B. Milford, CT
Our trip was fantastic! Probably my favorite trip so far! Gate 1 is an amazing company and I really can't imagine traveling overseas and not using you. Demetra was an incredible tour manager and guide. She was extremely knowledgeable. She was very helpful too with everything from ordering coffee in the rest stops to knowing where the perfect place to stop and take pictures as well as what to expect in the restaurants that we ate in. I can't think of a single instance where something went wrong or was unsatisfactory. The hotels were beautiful and the food was always delicious, even the hotel food. The choices of the hotels were top notch as well. We always felt safe. And all the restaurants Demetra brought us to were clean and friendly and delicious. We will definitely be booking with Gate 1 again. Congratulations on a great business! You really do it right!Kerry G. Smithtown, NY
We were a little nervous about embarking on an "independent" tour after our last "fully guided" tour (Thailand). But it was super organized, professional and we never felt uninformed or forgotten. Our tour guides along the way (Nicholas, Fotis, Angelo) were prompt, professional, informative and super helpful. They were thorough and would not leave our side unless they were sure we got from point A to point B. Every hotel was clean, safe and had amenities. All of the tours/tour guides/tour buses were fun, informative and professional. The Afroditi Beach Hotel and the Mykonos Beach hotel were gorgeous and right on the beaches. Next year we're planning on using Gate 1 to travel with our family to Peru-Machu Picchu. We have also continued to refer many friends and family to Gate 1 for their honeymoons and other travel.Kim M. Kew Gardens, NY
Thank you Gate 1 for making my vacation so exciting and effortless. Your tour managers and guides were absolutely fantastic (Panos -you were born to do this job! Jenny- thank you for sharing all your amazing knowledge!) We have seen so much! , yet the trip made me crave more- that's how beautiful Greece is. I don't think I would have ever been able to do all that on my own in the given 12 days .The Accommodations were great, the food-delicious, the views and the monuments-left me speechless, The Greeks-the nieces, most welcoming people I have met on my world travels. Greece-one day I will be back! but for now, I'm moving on to my next adventure with Gate1!Marta D. Buffalo Grove, IL
My Gate 1 Tour to Greece and Turkey was absolutely amazing. Our tour managers Panos and Adriana were terrific. They took care of every detail and really go above and beyond. The Royal Olympic hotel in Athens was really nice, and the Olympic cruise ship was a lot of fun. The tours were all great. My two sons and I had the experience of a lifetime. I would definitely use Gate 1 Travel for another tour.Regina G. White Plains, NY
Trip was great. Loved everything about Greece. Gate 1 did excellent job with the planning and accommodations were wonderful. Loved our tour guide Elana. She was the best yet.Doris H. Chesterton, IN
My trip was fantastic. My family and I had great times. Constantine was the best tour guide. We were so happy with his service, we liked his personality, professional and friendliness. I like Gate 1 very much. This is my 14th trip with Gate 1. I referred my family and friends to Gate 1 too.The V. Sacramento, CA
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip.country is beautiful, our guide Elena was so kind, gracious, knowledgeable and helpful. We are already thinking of our next Gate 1 vacation.Julie R. Orlando, FL
It was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide Yahni was the best!!!!!Michael W. Rockville, MD
We had the most wonderful time in Greece and the 4 day island cruise, we were very impressed with the accommodations, we had great tour guides (always kind and helpful), and the excursions surpassed our imagination. We wouldn't have been able to have such a wonderful trip if it weren't for the affordable cost Gate 1 Travel offers. Keep up the good work Gate 1 Travel, I'm looking forward to our next trip with you.Cherie R. Danville, IN
Fantastic! Everything and everyone was top notch ! The tour guides, great. Vivian was a total delight. We were met at customs exit by Gate 1 driver to hotel, even though we were 2 hours late. The hotels were outstanding. We had some very delightful surprises, having lunch in a home, dance lesson, Vivian got us to sites early before crowds, olive oil tasting, little special stops. I would recommend Gate 1 for travel without hesitation. Thank you for a perfect vacation!Janet D. Kansas City, MO
My vacation was awesome. More than I ever expected. Our Gate 1 Travel representatives were the best, and assured that every detail of our experience was addressed. Our guides Yannis and Christina were beyond impressive. I am now planning my next trip with Gate 1.Michelle S. Montgomry Vlg, MD
We had yet another fantastic travel experience with Gate 1! Both Yanni and Christina were excellent guides. Choice of hotels was great, as always. Nice selections for the breakfast buffets. Our bus driver, Alexander, did a great job. As someone prone to travel sickness, I really appreciate a smooth ride!Karen K. Carmel, IN
Great! Your employee, Angelo, along with his driver, made our trip a delight. Angelo delighted us with his stories and enlightened us with info we needed to navigate our way through Athens.Patricia A. Tallahassee, FL
Fantastic, Panos is the most attentive and caring cruise manager and he made our cruise a blast. The ship and all amenities were perfect, much more friendly than a huge ship the people were like a family and we really felt embraced. The food was out of this world. Then Vivian , the land trip manager was a very, very knowledgeable guide and aside of few cultural differences we loved having her to introduce us to the Greek culture The food in the land portion of our trip was also wonderful and loaded with Greek specialities. We learned to dans with Vivian and a Greek guy and enjoyed Greek drinks. Efesus guide Fulia was also a warm and knowledgeable guide. As a whole this was our best Gate 1 trip and the Cruise had a lot to do with it.Calin B. Montgomery, AL
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip every step of the way!! Well organized. Excellent tour guides!! Nice places of stay in. Thanks for all the services. Looking forward to do more in the future.Mini A. Lafayette Hl, PA
The trip was fantastic!! Kudos to our guide Vivian! She made it very memorable with her enthusiasm. Will definitely look into others trip with Gate 1.Teddy H. Garden Grove, CA
It was great! All accommodations were perfect! I met some other wonderful Gate 1 travelers. I was so pleasantly surprised with the welcome guide in Greece as well as the escort to the airport when returning home. This has been my second trip with you all, and it definitely will not be my last!Cg B. Houston, TX
Vivian did a fantastic job as our guide - with a Masters degree in archeology and geology, she was a continuous source of information and gave us a great education (in addition to being very personable and super considerate of the group's needs).Richard H. Concord, NC
The trip was great. The credit goes to our tour guide, Vivian, and coach driver for their outstanding services. Hotels and food were also excellent. It was a fabulous experience for me and my daughter to be able to travel together with a group of people for five days, the memory will be cherished forever. Thanks and keep up the good service and we will come to you again.Hsueh-Chen T.
Absolutely wonderful, amazing, stupendous…I could go on and on!! Vivian is the BEST guide ever!!Wanda Z. Shell Lake, WI
Very nice, thank you. Well organized, tour guide was wonderful.Jason G. Hammond, IN
The trip to Greece was incredible. We had a great guide who had incredible knowledge. It is a trip that I would recommend to my friends, especially if Militsa was the guide. The hotels, transportation and food were more than we expected. Everything was first class and handled in a very professional manner. Thank you for the services that Gate 1 offers.John H. Cedar Park, TX
My daughter & I had a blast with the Classic Greece tour! Everything ran smooth & organized, from pick up & departure transfers by Angelo, Athens city tour with Cassandra, & our 4 day Classic Greece tour with Eugenia. Eugenia thought all of the things that travellers like us anticipate & like. The historical places we visited & the simply delicious Greek cuisine was superb! Thank you, Gate 1!!!Catalina C. Hayward, CA
