Our trip was fabulous! The arrangements were superb and every detail as provided by Gate 1 was on point. The car rental agency, hotels and air reservations were wonderful. Couldn't ask for any better service. Thank you! My family looks forward to traveling with you again the future.Maria F. Miami, FL
The trip was fantastic; we saw a lot of great sights. Our trip leader, Myriam, was the best trip leader we have ever had--and we have taken a lot of trips. Outside of some glitches with the airlines, everything else went well.Norma S. Ellison Bay, WI
My trip was wonderful! Our tour guide, Simone, was excellent, the weather was near perfect, and Italy was everything, and more, I've always heard it to be! Very happy with Gate 1!Stephanie B. Enfield, CT
Montecatini was amazing. My mom loved every minute of it! It was 70 degrees everyday. The food was amazing! The hotels were beautiful! The people were very kind and helpful! The rolling hills of Tuscany were breath-taking. We took the train everywhere and it was very easy to get around. We spent a day in Milan in the fashion district and a day in Florence. We check out the Cathedrals and wonderful art work. But we spend most of our time relaxing in Montecatini. Simply beautiful. I can't wait to go back!Tamara T. Winchester, VA
It was perfect. Our guide, Lorena, was fabulous and the accommodations were beautiful. Carlo, our driver was also exceptional. All three meals out were great - so much fun with great food and great service staff. I have done 4 of these trips with your company and I always highly recommend you. Lorena, Flavia and Simone are all incredible.Judith A. Tampa, FL
We had a wonderful time. All of the arrangements were flawless. The tour manager was fabulous. Will definitely consider using Gate 1 on our next tour type trip.David S. Ft Washington, PA
We had a great time on the Venice, Florence, and Rome tour! Such fun and beauty! Our guide was Francesco. He was great. You could tell he had a great love and enthusiasm for the cities we visited, which was contagious! We very much enjoyed his humor and he was very well organized. We found him to be knowledgeable and very responsive to any of our requests and questions. I could tell he enjoyed his job, but of course he had us as a perfect group too, lol. Our city tour guides were great too. Especially the handsome Marco in Venice, lol. He was very knowledgeable and extremely funny! The trip was very packed, but because of that we felt that we got to see all the important sights. Everything ran smoothly. The tours and dining experiences were delicious and lovely. Especially enjoyed the Opera dinner theater. Such a unique event. And the Gondola ride was amazing. I'll never forget gliding out of a narrow canal into the Grand Canal as the musician, singer, and our group belted out the song Volare!! Love Gate 1!Douglas F. Bolivia, NC
My entire family was so amazed the entire time. I give all the prompts to Gate 1. "We just showed up, and everything else was handled with professionalism!" We loved the hotels, the train ride was amazing, the taxi ride, the food, the airplane ride, and more. We will definitely be using Gate 1 again, again, and again.Yolanda C. Nashville, TN
Our trip was fantastic. Michaela made our trip so enjoyable. She is a breath of fresh air. So knowledgeable and professional. We loved the itinerary and pace. I really liked that we also had free time to shop, venture out on our own and have a few meals with smaller groups. Just perfect amount of quiet time. Each hotel was fabulous and the location was perfect in each place. Our guides were educated and fun. The bus and drivers very great, too. I give Gate 1 an A+. Only thing I would add to this itinerary is an optional Pisa, Sorrento and catacombs excursion. This is my 2nd Gate 1 tour. We love this kind of travel. No hassles, no lines, no decisions!!!Suzanne G. Astoria, OR
It was totally amazing! I loved everything about it and will definitely travel with Gate 1 again. Ricardo was an excellent tour guide and coordinator. I felt I got very good value for my money spent.Sharon A. Fairfield, CA
It was amazing and exceeded our expectations! It was our first trip with Gate 1 and we loved every minute of it! Martin was awesome and made us all feel very special and very attentive to even the small details. I am telling everyone what a wonderful company you are! Thank You for such great memories of Italy!Claire D. Byron Center, MI
Our trip was everything we wanted and more!! The accommodations in Montecatini were wonderful. The people who worked here were awesome. The scenery was fabulous. The hotel in Milan the last night was not so nice. Front desk lady was not very pleasant or helpful. Location to the airport was great. We met many other people who were traveling on Gate 1 travel and who had traveled many times before. They spoke very highly of the trips. We look forward to taking another trip with Gate 1 travel at a later day. My overall experience and recommendation would be AAA+ for this trip through Gate 1 travel.Herman S. East Windsor, NJ
What a GREAT TRIP. Gate 1 Travel was a an absolute pleasure to work with, everything was as promised. This was my husband and my first trip abroad and the information provided by Gate 1 Travel was invaluable. Thanks for providing such a memorable experience; we look forward to using Gate 1 Travel in the future.Andrea R. Pearl River, NY
Our trip was fabulous! Our trip manager Christopher was outstanding, professional, attentive to our needs, and very personable. The additional excursion guides were wonderful providing interesting facts and anecdotal stories about the great artisans of the Italy. Looking forward to another trip with Gate 1.Frederick M. Stockton, CA
It was incredible! Sicily was way more beautiful than any other place I've been. We are hoping to plan another trip soon but this one will be tough to beat!Diane A. Buffalo, NY
Hi! We loved it so much, a total hassle free vacation. Hotels are accommodating, clean, and in a great location. Flights were smooth and comfortable. We had a great time and are looking forward to our next adventure.Sarah P. Exeter, PA
My mother and I can't stop talking to all of family and friends about our trip. Italy was INCREDIBLE! Vanni our Tour Guide went WELL beyond our expectations. He should be the only person giving tours there because his knowledge and passion towards his country enhanced our adventures. We have absolutely nothing bad to share about your trip. The itinerary was excellent and I'm so glad we added the extra tours and meals. OMG! The Tuscany Winery Dinner was AWESOME! All of our Hotels were fabulous and the Hotel Staff were all very welcoming and helpful when we had questions. I was super surprised that Wifi was on the Bus and at our Hotels. After everyday of adventures, I posted the photos on Facebook and shared what we did. My cousins in Ohio were extremely motivated after seeing what we did and they called my mother and I to get more information on Gate 1 Travel. So....expect some more folks to join the Italy experience via Gate 1. Again...Thank you for everyone who put this tour together. I will continue to promote your website as much as a I can!Michael P. Orange, CA
My trip was fantastic, but too short. The hotel was beautiful, impeccably clean, and conveniently located within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The hotel staff are very friendly and go out of their way to assist planning day trips. The hotel is perfectly situated for easy travel by car or train to all of the hotspots throughout Tuscany and beyond.Paul W. Vacaville, CA
As always, phenomenal. I have recommended Gate 1 to many people and believe that your Customer Service is second to none, which is so important. This was my first Independent Tour with your company, but the flight and hotel were incredible. There are a few additional tours I wish I had seen offered as add ons from you, but in all - an amazing trip!Lisa B. New York, NY
Everything was perfectly arranged, and our tour manager (Johnny) was exceptional and passionate about the area we visited. This was the first time I traveled with Gate 1 Travel, and I will continue to do so. I'm already recommended Gate 1 Travel highly to my friends.Gina M. Ballston Lake, NY
Our trip was amazing!! Everything was perfect. Our tour manger, Marion, was so informative and helpful fun and such a genuine person. All of our tour guides were so passionate about there work and teaching us I walked away from our vacation saying I will definitely use Gate 1 for our next trip.Donna L. South Ostelic, NY
The trip was amazing from start to finish. From Miriam, our tour manager, to all the local tour guides, to the accommodations to every last detail, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect trip. It was our first tour group experience and our first trip out of the country and we were just thrilled with everything. I have been telling all my friends, coworkers and family that if you ever want to see Italy (or anywhere) you have to use Gate 1 Travel. I have always been an anxious traveler but all we had to do was show up and you had this amazing journey through beautiful Italy completely planned out for us. I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things. And we developed new friendships with so many lovely people that we were fortunate enough to meet in our group. So many unexpected and wonderful experiences. It has always been a dream of mine to travel to Italy and so thank you for making that dream come true and for making it a truly unforgettable experience.Joseph M. St Petersburg, FL
It was amazing. Originally we chose the 4 nights and airfare in Milan because it was such a great deal. Which was the same reason we were worried, maybe good to be true. The arrangements were flawless. I felt as if we were treated with the same care as a first class client. Emirates airline was great, and we were surprised when we were set up to go through the quick TSA line. The hotel was professional and spoke excellent English. We will book with Gate 1 again. Next time a bigger trip!Elizabeth L. Rockville, MD
It was very good. I had been to Italy many times but I always see and learn something new. Martin was accommodating, knowledgeable and lots of fun. He made the trip. Thanks.Georgia B. Boulder, CO
The trip was wonderful! This is my wife and I third gate one trip, and each one keeps getting better. All of our guides were amazing. The cities we traveled were amazing and the food was excellent. We certainly look forward to traveling with gate one again in the near future.George R. Austin, TX
The trip was awesome! Viviana is a top notch tour manager. Enjoyed the itinerary, accommodations, and the fellow tour mates as well. Look forward to a future Gate 1 adventure.Carolyn B. Manitoba, Canada
We had a wonderful time. I was very impressed with the entire trip, from start to finish. Gabriele, our guide, was fantastic, as were all the local guides. The hotels were in great locations and I was very happy with the additional excursions that we purchased.Kyra L. Rego Park, NY
We had a wonderful trip and amazing experience in Italy. Gate 1 did a fantastic job in putting this air+hotel+car package together and everything was top class. Thank you!Anish P. Poughkeepsie, NY
Thank you so much for the wonderful trips. It was amazing, even though I bought the package where you do your own things. I ended up meeting many of the other travelers with Gate 1 and they all are very nice. The trip was the most amazing trip I've ever had. Everything is so organized. All the train and the hotels are so close to each other. So easy to get around the city. Hotel services all very nice too. Thank you, I would go through Gate 1 again in the future.Hoang V. Thornton, CO
Thank you so much for all your help with arranging the trip. It was an absolute blast! Everything ran smoothly and I was able to show my parents something they said they never thought they would see. I was so grateful for the price and the reliability that your company provided. Words don't express enough how helpful you were in coordinating that my parents were able to mimic the itinerary I had purchased first. Thank you!Melody E. New York, NY
The trip was WONDERFUL!!! Zero complaints. Our tour manager, Gabriela, was phenomenal. She clearly loves her work and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. All the local guides were fantastic as well. There was a great balance of structure and free time. Hotels were great. Optional tours were enriching and worth every penny. Meals were excellent. We loved every minute, are so happy we went with Gate 1 and will be back!Amanda K. Gainesville, GA
Overall, I want to compliment Gate 1 Travel on the 9 day Venice/Florence/Rome trip. All 3 cities were spectacular! The arrangements Gate 1 made for us with flights, trains, hotels, tours, guides, etc. were all top notch. Everything went off without a hitch and we were pleased every step of the way. You have 6 very happy tourists who would use Gate1 again and again. The affordability was outstanding! Thank you for setting up such a lovely trip for the 6 of us.Debra C. Oakland, MI
Excellent! Gate 1 Travel exceeded my expectations! The staff were very helpful from the time I landed (and had lost luggage) to each guide of the side trips to the bus driver ... and Francesca our tour guide was the best! She gave great information and tips that enhanced the whole trip from city to city. I will definitely be using Gate1 again! Gratsi!Richard G. Long Beach, CA
Our Italy trip was absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. Genevieve and I loved everything and were most pleased with our hotel, our car (sporty Mercedes!) and our flights. the hotel staff was lovely and welcoming and the Gate 1 rep who was in our lobby each day helped so much with tips and ideas. we loved Montecatini and the girls loved the white marble piazza in front of the hotel, full of holiday lights. each night we left the doors open and fell asleep to music drifting up from the restaurants. we did lots of day trips...from biking the walls of Lucca to dipping our feet in the Mediterranean Sea at Monterosso. Florence was amazing as always and we watched the sunset over the Arno. while there, we did an oil and vinegar tasting in the San Mercato market, courtesy of our hired tour guide (recommended by your lovely Gate 1 rep) and enjoyed how uncrowded and beautiful the city looked, decorated for Christmas. We ended each day with Prosecco and gelato and snuggled into bed in anticipation of what the next day would hold. This trip was so well laid out by your company. our only question now is...where will you send us next?! we are open to suggestions and loved traveling on a budget with our daughters! (Ages 8 and 9).Kristen W. Mechanicsburg, PA
We had an amazing trip! I want to thank you and all at Gate 1 Travel for making our trip to Italy the best vacation ever. Everything was well planned and organized. I will highly recommend Gate 1 to all my friends, colleagues and family!Darlene I. Calgary, Canada
Our trip was ABSOLUTELY STELLAR! Johnny is a rock star! He took care of us VERY well! Love him to pieces! Gate 1 never disappoints and I am constantly referring you guys to my friends! Thanks so much for checking in!Monique G. Alexandria, VA
We had a fabulous time! We loved staying in Montecatini -- we were able to see Lucca, Pisa, Sienna, Florence, Milan, and drive along the coast by Cinque Terra on the way back to Milan. We saw the statue of David and visited a few vineyards for fabulous wine tastings. Everything went smoothly. This trip seemed too good to be true for the cost. I shouldn't have been skeptical, we had no issues with any of the hotels / flights or the rental car whatsoever (and the staff at the Grand Plaza Hotel was great!). I will use Gate 1 in the future 100%. I also want to say I contacted your customer service (to get the name on the car rental changed) and they were fabulous, it was no problem.Heather M. Arlington, VA
My wife and I had a great trip. The Itinerary was perfect with centrally located comfortable hotels, excellent food, and most importantly Alessandro - a great guide and host. All the tour guides were quite experienced with impressive knowledge of history and very professional. Enough free time was planned into the schedule we could do some exploring on our own. I'd happily recommend Gate 1 to anyone.Sebastian B. Boyds, MD
It was a wonderful trip! Many thanks to you and all the folks involved in handling the logistics and organizing the tour. Everything went off without a hitch for us. We'd especially like to call attention to our tour director, Johnny. He was absolutely superb throughout and contributed immensely to our thorough enjoyment of all aspects of the tour.Thomas P. Rye, NH
The trip as well as the Trip Director, Lorena was awesome. She is a true professional who is extremely knowledgeable and well organized; and who was especially attentive, flexible and really cared for all of the travelers on this trip. She helped make this amazing experience succeed for everyone and is definitely a "value add" to your organization.Thomas G. Cresskill, NJ
Our trip was fantastic! We had a wonderful time. We covered a lot of places and saw a lot of sights. We were very happy with how the tour was run and we were so impressed with our guide, Marisa. She was amazing! So much knowledge, very friendly and accommodating. We are so glad we found Gate1. We came across Gate1 because 2 of the other major tour companies that we were going to go with decided to cancel their similar tours on the dates that we had chosen. It was through some extensive internet searching that we came across Gate1 and the Italy tour that suited our travel dates. People in Australia need to know about Gate 1. We were the only Australians on the tour. Maybe some advertising could help get the word out? We will definitely recommend Gate1 to our friends and will definitely use Gate1 on our next overseas trip. Thank you Gate 1!Vicki G. NSW, Australia
Our trip to Italy was terrific. Enjoyed having a car because of the freedom it provided. GPS we rented is dated so that would be my suggestion in way of improvements. Saw Florence , went by train, and drove to Lucca, Pisa, Siena, and San gimmy. Spent a restful day in montecani, took funiculare to alto and back. Discovered a great gelato store near the hotel San Marco and visited several times. Looked forward to breakfast every morning to greet and speak with other gate 1 folks. Met people we plan to stay in touch with. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed.Ellen S. Sears, MI
Fabulous!!! Loved every minute!! We cannot say enough about the experience. This was the first time we've gone on a tour like this, but won't be the last. Marisa was an excellent tour guide. The local guides were knowledgeable and informative. We learned and saw so much more than we ever could have on our own.Teresa S. Niantic, CT
Sicily is a beautiful place to visit, from the accommodations, to the landscape, the beautiful water, the delicious food and all the interesting sites we visited. We had more than WONDERFUL tour guide, Flavia, she was so helpful and knowledgeable on the entire trip, passionate about her beautiful home land, there wasn't one question she could not answer. This was our third Gate 1 trip, and she was the best!! We can not thank her enough. She was caring to each of our individual needs, she was always accessible for any questions, recommendations for dinner, shopping and safety. Being second generation Sicilian it was very important to me to see Sicily as a whole, and Romando our driver, Flavia and Gate 1 did an amazing job. We just booked our trip yesterday to travel to Croatia in April. Many Thanks once again, for a trip of great memories and an amazing tour guide Flavia.Patricia F. Tolland, CT
Our trip was AWESOME! As usual our experience with Gate 1 exceeded our expectations. Thank you for always offering affordable yet quality travel. We look forward to our next trip with Gate 1!Vicky B. Centralia, WA
Absolutely wonderful! Tour guide, Francesca was awesome! she was very personable and professional. I got sick on the trip and she made sure I was ok, went to pharmacy with me and was a pleasure being with her. This was my 3rd gate 1 tour and she was the absolute best!!!! She deserves more than just a Pat on the back.... she should be celebrated !!!! Thank you so much and I am looking forward to booking my next trip .Leanne C. Roswell, GA
Trip of a lifetime. Our guide Makala was wonderful; wouldn't want to do any trip without her. She was so caring and concerned and went out of her way to be accommodating to anyone's needs. She added extra touch's that made the trip special. It was the first time several in our group had used Gate 1 and all said they would definitely use them again. I received far more than expected not only with the places we went but with the hotels and especially the dinners. Wow those were some restaurants. Thanks again for your help in arranging this trip. Will definitely recommend you to my friends.Linda B. Chillicothe, OH
Our trip was wonderful. The flight with Emirates was smooth and efficient. The car rental went off without a hitch (we were offered a hybrid which saved on gas.) The hotels were excellent with great breakfasts each morning.David F. Crofton, MD
Our Gate 1 Tuscany trip was fabulous! It was even more wonderful than I imagined. The itinerary was perfect, our tour guide Ana marvelous, accommodations terrific, and our tour group great fun. It was definitely a trip of a lifetime! This was a graduation present to my daughter, and the memories we made together will last forever. I cannot thank you enough for the professional manner, priority reservations and tours, and for the welcoming we felt at every point along the way. Our flights were top notch and transportation during the trip very enjoyable. My photos reveal the exquisite sites, but cannot begin to portray the sounds and sounds experienced with friendships made. Grazie!Karen G. Kingsport, TN
My husband and I had a wonderful time. Originally, we were trying to arrange this itinerary on our own with a rental car because of my husband's desire for independence. We were both delighted with the traveling companions, tour director, hotels, local guides, and group dinners. The hotels' locations were ideal with beautiful views overlooking the cities in Lake Como and Sorrento. Breakfasts were bountiful and we enjoyed the wine tasting experience. The travelers on our tour were first time Gate 1 users and also experienced ones. I knew nothing about Gate 1 and only chose you because of the itinerary, but I would definitely recommend your company and plan to use you exclusively in the future. Nicoletta, our tour director, was the most dedicated and organized guide I have experienced. She even arranged for a doctor visit to our hotel on a Sat. night. Most impressive.Judith K. Reading, PA
