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
Best vacation ever! First time I've ever just shown up and enjoyed myself. I'm usually the planner. Gate 1 had all the details covered! Very nice drivers and guides. Impressive tour guides! Thanks!!!Lisa C. Frostburg, MD
Your agents in Greece were excellent - often going above and beyond. All flights, ferries, transfers and tours went flawlessly. Hotels were all good and in good locations. Another memorable trip with Gate 1 - thank you.Deborah S. British Colombia, Canada
The trip was fantastic thanks to the exceptional Gate 1 representatives. We started off with Stella and Haris in Athens, then on to Santorini where Fotis was awaiting, afterwards we met Tassos in Mykonos, and then our last and final greeting was back in Athens with Stella and Haris. When we landed in Athens after our long journey, it was such a pleasure to see and meet 2 very happy and helpful individuals. Stella and Haris assisted us with check in and for the next part of our trip. They asked us how we were doing and where we were from. They were very happily surprised to find out that we were of Greek decent and had traveled to Greece before and were able to speak the language. When we landed in Santorini, we met with Fotis who also was very friendly and helpful. He offered to assist us with our baggage and talked to us about what to expect while we stayed on the island. He offered us a great tip of going to watch the fireworks on the night of our arrival! When we arrived in Mykonos, we met with Tassos who was very helpful and friendly. He assisted us with our baggage and also talked to us about what to expect while there. We found his tips on what to do and where to go on the island allowing us to have a pleasurable time. When our trip ended in Athens, Stella and Haris remembered us and could not wait to hear about our experiences. We told them how pleased we were with everything! It had been about 20 years since we had been to Greece. We found our experience with Gate 1 to be very memorable and exceeded all our expectations! We would definitely go back and would use Gate 1 again! Thank you Gate 1, until next time........Dionysus K. Walpole, MA
Sorry for the delay. The trip was unbelievable. It was one of the best trips we have ever taken. I can't believe how much we saw and learned in the 10 days that we traveled throughout Greece. The tour guides we had (Oliva, Martina) were excellent. The hotels were excellent. The overall experience was excellent. We will definitely looking forward toward our next trip with Gate 1. I appreciate you reaching out and for all your help.Francis M. West Newton, MA
Our trip was wonderful! All of our Gate 1 tour guides were great, with a special shout out to our cruise ship guide - Panos!!! We can't say enough about him! He was always on time, so informative and super fun to be with! Can't wait to travel with Gate 1 Travel in the future and hopefully with Panos again. Happy New Year to you all!Nancy H. Scarsdale, NY
My wife and I had an amazing time. All the local representatives were professional, patient and friendly. They made the transitions from airports to shuttles to hotels smooth and seamless. I am recommending Gate 1 to friends and family. Thank you all!!!!Enrique J. Whittier, CA
It was my first time traveling with Gate 1 and it exceeded my expectations. We were met at the airport by a lovely guide who clearly instructed us where to wait. Very shortly after we were escorted to our bus and had another guide who went over different things with us on the way to the hotel. The two days in Athens were awesome. Another lovely guide. Once at Port we met Olivia who would be with us until the end who also worked as a team with Pano because there was another Gate 1 group. They were beyond amazing leaving no stone unturned. They were able to get us on and off the ship fast, on the first buses to our excursions. Their introductory briefing on the ship was super informative giving us all the ins and outs and lots of details. Whenever there was a change they put notes under our cabin doors and personally looked for us to make sure we knew. I was meeting a friend in Kusadaci and they told me where to tell him to meet me outside the port and Pano physically took me to my meeting point to make sure I found him. All the guides spoke excellent English and worked so hard. I also noticed how well they worked as a team. At the end they said such nice things and gave each of us a gift of a soap from Greece. I would highly recommend Gate 1 and I look forward to future travel with you.Amy K. Roswell, GA
IT WAS AMAZING. My now fiance proposed in Santorini the first night and every day was an amazing day. Thank you so much for all your help and booking us in great hotels, transportation, etc. We felt safe everywhere we went and the tours were unbelievable. We will definitely be calling you again if we plan another vacation. Thanks again for all your help and we hope to call you again soon!!!!Giovanna R. Bronx, NY
Our trip to Greece was amazing! This was my first time using Gate 1 and I am so glad I did. Island hopping can be challenging with car and Ferry transfers. A Gate 1 representative met us at each location to escort us and provide us with information on the island. They were prompt, friendly and very helpful. This service made it stress free and I will definitely will use Gate 1 again. Thank you for making our trip of a lifetime absolutely memorable. It was perfect!Dawn C. Encinitas, CA
Sorry for the tardy reply as we extended our vacation in Greece after the Gate 1 Tour. Our experience was wonderful in every respect. Not only did Greece exceed or expectations, but so did all of the people. Your tour guides were among the best that we have ever experienced and that is saying a lot as the Gate 1 guides have been consistently above average. Militsa, Anna and Panos were all very knowledgeable and caring of the group. They all represented Gate 1 in a very professional and competent manner. You should be very proud to have them on our staff. Thanks for another great trip.Edward P. Folsom, CA
The trip was great! It was extremely well organized, well paced, and very informative. The guide, Yannis, was wonderful. Not only that he was able to keep things perfectly organized for all of us (and it was a very large, diverse group), but he us very knowledgeable and managed to made ancient Greek history fun (combined facts with anecdotes and myths). In addition, he was always available and proved very patient with various needs and wants people had. The driver, Nikos, was excellent as well, and fun managing after very full days to have some pleasant conversation with the people in the group. Another excellent trip with Gate 1 - Thank you! Your services are top quality, yet affordable and that is not an easy balance. We will definitely book another trip with Gate 1. Also, several of our friends have already booked trips with Gate !. Keep up the good work as it benefits all of us :-)Gabriela E. Petaluma, CA
We had a wonderful time in both Greece and Paris. It is one of the most memorable trips we have ever had. Our tour guide, Panos, was very nice, considerate, and thoughtful. I'd like to extend a big thank you to you for your help with the booking. Since we didn't book a standard package, you went out of your way to meet our needs and made the connecting flights between the cities/countries seamless. We will definitely travel with Gate 1 again in the future.Hui Ling Y. Newton, MA
Our trip was perfect. We loved Greece and was very happy with the Gate 1 organization. Every transfer, hotels, tours, etc were absolutely outstanding. The guides that helped us through out the trip were very helpful and attentive. We will definitely consider using Gate 1 for our next vacation.Carmen H. Braintree, MA
Our trip to Greece was absolutely and undeniably one of the best trips ever! I traveled with my mother, and we both fell in love with this beautiful country, its rich culture, history, but mostly - the unforgettable Greek hospitality! And I must say all credit is due to 'Gate 1 Travel's' incredible organization of the itinerary and the most amazing tour guides, Panos and Kassandra, as well as our driver Alexios! I can't imagine visiting Greece without their company. The thoroughness and the passion with which Panos guided our group was so personally inspiring, exciting and uplifting. His unique ability to connect with people is his sacred gift. Talk about someone who always goes above and beyond for his group! By the end of our three day cruise, we were all teary-eyed to part ways. During the second half of the land tour, we were absolutely in awe of all the majestic views we had the opportunity to see. And I must admit, I never left Kassandra's side because she doesn't just take you on tour, she has the rare ability to immerse you into that moment in history and time, and suddenly you become Athena or Apollo! History most certainly comes alive with her amazing storytelling! Kassie also simply makes you feel like family with her contagiously energetic personality, sense of humor and positivity! She is a gem of a person! And if I ever decide to move to Greece, I would only take driving lessons from Alexios! What a skill it is to go up all the 'snake-path' roads in the mountains! He is a true professional and a person of great character. I can seriously go on and on about the amazing time we had in Greece, and the amazing friends we have made. Thank you Gate 1 for making our experience truly magical! We will most definitely be booking with you very soon! Opa!Yuliya S. Springfield, MA
The trip was great and well thought through. Everything was organized to perfection. My family loved it and for sure can't wait to book another trip with Gate 1.Aziza L. Novi, MI
Amazing ! Can't say enough about how smooth everything went and all of the guides especially Maria in Athens was superior. From the hotels and the bus all were excellent and I would and have suggested to others Gate 1 is the way to go! Can't wait for our next trip... Thanks for a memorable trip.Steven W. Martinsburg, WV
The trip was fantastic! We had an amazingly smooth experience with travel, hotels, transfers, etc. The Gate 1 coordination was on point and the extended team was very professional. I appreciate your help and knowledge very much!Dahlia P. St. Augustine, FL
The trip was fantastic! Everything went very smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about logistics even once. While it was our Honeymoon, we didn’t want to have to stress over planning and Gate 1 made that effortless. All the guides were very knowledgeable, punctual, and courteous. We will certainly use Gate 1 in the future!Michael D. Virginia Bch, VA
This was by far the best trip I've ever been on. Greece marks my 37th country, and I couldn't have been happier with the services that Gate 1 provided. My tour guide Yiannis was amazing, and the entire trip went very smoothly. I'm already looking forward to booking my next trip with Gate 1.Dana R. Belle Mead, NJ
We had an amazing trip! I'm so happy with our guides - Senol (Istanbul) and Panos (Greek Island cruise) were both fantastic. My daughter and I participated in a few organized tours, but primarily investigated on our own. Both Senol and Panos gave excellent restaurant and attraction/sightseeing suggestions, clear travel directions and many helpful hints to make our trip easier. It was a fantastic experience and I am so glad we went. As with our previous travel through Gate 1, I am very satisfied with all of the arrangements and the ease of booking. In spite of the violence in Istanbul, I am recommending this trip to my friends. Best wishes and safe travels to Senol and PanosChristine Q. Baraboo, WI
Great trip! Loved everything. The hotels were top notch (our room at the Royal Olympian was incredible - large room facing Temple of Zeus! We loved the restaurant at the Royal Olympian as well)! The guides were AMAZING!!!! Really was impressed with our guide Elena for the land portion (Olympia, Delphi, Meteora), she was just amazing. I could listen to her voice all day, every day. She was very knowledgeable and made everyone feel very comfortable. My favorite place was going to Ephesus in Turkey. I just love Gate 1 and will choose Gate 1 for my next trip abroad. Thank you!Kimberley C. La Crosse, WI
Trip was just fine thank you. Gate 1 does an awesome job, the tour guides are wonderful, caring people. My husband and I would recommend Gate 1 to anyone and everyone.Cynthia B. Crownsville, MD
Great!!! as usual Gate 1 has delivered a wonderful travel experience with very professional Tour Guides, Escorts, etc. who took care of us in a very professional way.Maria A. New York, NY
We had a wonderful time again with Gate 1. All accommodations, transport, bus drivers, guides and tour directors were consistently good. We will definitely travel with Gate 1 again in the future. Thanks so much for a wonderful, reasonably priced adventure!Robert O. North Augusta, SC
I had such a wonderful trip to Greece!. This was my first escorted trip, (before this I've always traveled independent) and I found it to be way less stressful, very nicely organized, the combination of places visited: ancient history and religious teams, hotels, transportation, cruise, everything was just great. Land and islands, I feel in love with Greece. I cannot say what I liked more. Gate 1 guides (all of them) are very knowledgeable, and passionate of their country history and proud to share their knowledge with the guests. Also extremely good organizers. Constantine, our cruise guide,manager, organizer etc, was above all. He did a exceptional job. Thank you to all, but especially Constatine, for making sure we had a great time. I will definitely use Gate 1 travel again!Diane C. Gaithersburg, MD
Super trip, but we're still trying to reset our sleeping schedule to local time. Thanks, Gate 1, for our excellent guides Delik in Turkey and Panos in Greece. The cruise through the Greek Islands was a long time travel wish. It lived up to our dreams. Istanbul with it's mosques and markets was really a crossroad of history for the three continents. We learned so much and saw some spectacular sights. The hotels on our tour were all good quality and comfortable for sleep after a day full of walking. We're trying to choose our next Gate 1 tour.Elizabeth M. Huntingtn Bch, CA
This was our first experience with Gate 1 and we had an amazing memorable time. We not only were welcomed by the most professional and gracious Gate 1 representatives but through this experience we made new friends we will keep in touch with and reunite with on another Gate 1 trip in the years to come! The entire trip was operated with perfection and synchronized beautifully regardless of the hiccup of the workers on strike with our appointed ferries to Mykonos and back to Athens. Our Gate 1 representatives held our hands through the entire process and assured us of no worries. Fotis and Kostas in Santorini always made themselves more than readily available for questions and concerns as did Tassos in Mykonos who was there with us at the ferry while we waited to board. Stella welcomed us warmly and bid us farewell even at the crack of dawn the last hours or our stay in Athens. My fiance and I could not have asked for a better group to vacation with and each and every representative in Greece made us feel so warm and welcomed we will never forget them and appreciate how beautiful they helped make our experience in Greece. We can't wait to book another event with Gate 1! Thank you for all you have done to help make this trip oh so memorable. Please commend all the staff we have mentioned for they went above and beyond to make our stay more than comfortable and so enjoyable! They work very hard and their passion should be recognized and appreciated for their efforts. We left our hearts in Greece!Kim P. Hayward, CA
I can't stop talking about our trip to Greece with Gate 1. This is the best vacation that my husband and I have ever been on and we have traveled around the world. The service from Gate 1 was exceptional and our tour manager Kassandra was just AWESOME. She was always bubbly and had a smile on her face. She is very knowledgeable and proud of her birthplace. She was also very kind and considerate when she found out that some of the couples on the tour were celebrating a honeymoon, anniversary or a birthday she brought a cake to celebrate their big day. She is jus a class act all the way around!!!!! I have given the name of Gate 1 to many co workers, friends and family, so look to here from them soon. Thank you again for being such a awesome company. For providing wonderful deals that make it possible to see the world. We have never done a packaged tour before and were a little skeptical about booking but once we read the reviews and prayed about it we booked it and Gate 1 didn't disappoint!!!!Julia B. Duarte, CA
Our trip was absolutely amazing. The hotel was wonderful and so was the staff. They were extremely kind and helpful. All of the optional tours were wonderful. We had the same tour guide on all of our tours. Her name was Martina and she was the best. She was very knowledgable and answered all the questions we had. She was very nice and accommodating to everyone in our group. She made sure everyone had a good time and learned a lot. We made a lot of new friends and were really happy with our experience. We hope to take more trips with Gate 1 in the future.Jennifer C. Guilford, CT
Amazing!! I appreciate Gate 1's professionalism and timeliness. Everything went smoothly and allowed me to enjoy my vacation and not worry about the little details. I will definitely book with your agency in the future!Angela H. Bridgeport, CT
Our tour was very well organized and we were very satisfied . We were met by representatives every step of the way to ensure a smooth transition and having all the transfer details and hotel reservations pre-arranged, allowed us to enjoy the vacation while there, free from worry. All representatives gave us their contact information for any emergencies as well as an overview of island and what was recommended to do as well as safety tips such as not to drink the water and to avoid pick pockets in certain areas. All were courteous and knowledgeable : Vicky and Harris in Athens; Fotis in Santorini; Tasos in Mykonos and Angelo/Dimitri back in Athens. The description of the hotels matched the reviews and we were pleased with all, in particular with Hotel Artemis in Mykonos We will definitely recommend Gate 1 travel to friends and look forward to the opportunity to use them again.Martha P. Ardsley, NY
Thank you for checking in! The trip was great! I definitely want to take this opportunity to say that Gate 1 Travel planned everything so well and the contacts in Greece were so responsive and helpful. We would love to use Gate 1 again in the future! Many thanks.Amy K. Brooklyn, NY
Our trip to Greece was heavenly! It was another fantastic Gate 1 excursion that we've enjoyed! We even met up with a couple that we met on a past Gate 1 trip. Proves how small the world is.Michael S. Lorton, VA
The trip was absolutely amazing. Gate 1 was so great, each representative so helpful and so many tour and activity options to choose from. I would 100% recommend you (already have) to my friends and also look forward to using Gate 1 in the future. Thanks so much!Alyssa G. Merrick, NY
Our trip was a lot of fun. I wanted to take the time to say we really enjoyed Panos! He was very helpful, friendly, and informative. He kept us organized and told us useful information about every island we visited in Greece. He gave us tips on what to do on the islands and also helped us with the things we wanted to do. He told us which islands to be careful about pick pocketing and how to order. It is because of Panos and our tour manager Edgar in Peru that we really have enjoyed all our travels with gate1. It is also because of them that we recommend gate1 to other people. We really appreciated Angelo and Stella picking us up at the airport and taking us back. They helped make the trip very easy for us! Please pass along to these people how much we appreciated their kindness and service.Ajana L. Tucson, AZ
Thank you for checking in. It was phenomenal! We had an amazing time and Militza and Constantine were fantastic! I have and will tell all my friends how wonderful Gate 1 is!Misty T. Windham, ME
