Our trip to Italy was fantastic!! Loved every minute. Our tour guide Suzy was excellent and took such good care of everyone. Local guides were very knowledgeable and personable. Best food. Wonderful time.Mary R. Evergreen Pk, IL
My trip was absolutely wonderful!!! This was truly a once in a lifetime experience for me made even better by your fantastic service. Since childhood, I have always wanted to visit Italy. Having studied Italy in college was nothing compared to actually seeing aspects of the entire country. I can't tell you how much it meant to me to be so well taken care of by our wonderful tour manager and guide, Suzy!! Suzy was wonderful and her knowledge and expertise was without a doubt excellent!! She took care of us throughout the entire tour. Her care and concern is to be emulated by all tour managers and she made the tour experience fun!! From beginning to end, Gate 1 Travel made my travel and trip from destination to destination an easy and great experience!! Much kudos to our other tour guide, Simone!! He was truly excellent in his detailed knowledge and history of every place we visited. It was a pleasure being with him. I will definitely use Gate 1 travel again for other tours. Again, thank you so much for a wonderful tour of Italy!!Reginald M. La Mesa, CA
The Italy trip was all we had hoped it would be and much, much more. Everything was perfect and we got to see every classic city and famous historic place/monument/museum/ancient ruin, etc. we ever dreamed about. Hotel accommodations were superb and the dinners provided were delicious. We felt so special. Can't say enough positive things about our Tour Manager, Francesca. She was simply wonderful - funny, kind, caring and knowledgeable and most of all patient. Thank You Gate 1 for the trip of a lifetime.Joan S. Coconut Creek, FL
The trip was as expected.....BEAUTIFUL, SPECTACULAR and WONDERFUL, but most of all MEMORABLE. I will treasure it all the days of my life and will look forward to more adventures with Gate 1. The tour guide was wonderful, informative and most of all caring for his group's welfare and well-being. He can surely be recommended for future guided tours by you and me for my friends and others.Mariaelena D. San Antonio, TX
My trip was FANTASTIC!!! I am extremely pleased with my vacation from start to finish and WILL be traveling with Gate 1 in the future. Many thanks to all the staff involved for making my trip a very memorable one... THANK YOU!Anna G. Plainville, CT
Excellent. We had the time of our lives. Vanni our tour guide was fantastic. He told us facts about the country and towns as we were passing through which made the bus rides enjoyable :)Carolyn M. Hingham, MA
Every aspect of our trip was to our full satisfaction. Our tour manager Danni was exceptional at making sure everything was running as scheduled and was always available for anyone's questions. I will definitely use your service again.Adrian C. Fontana, CA
Our trip was phenomenal. Each one of us was surprised by the way every excursion was well organized and every tour guide's information was easy to understand and their concern for the group not getting too overtired and making sure we always had some sort of shade. The side trips offered to us were a nice surprise which added a great bonus to our visit. Our Tour Manager Mikaela (mama bear) was exceptional. She was always available and helpful. Her seemingly flawless day to day travels with us was incredible. All on the tour were brought together as friends during this wonderful experience. We would certainly take another trip with Gate 1 and we are already telling our friends. Thank you.Susan K. Litchfield, NH
I don't have words to express my appreciation for the service my daughter Monica and I received from GATE 1. From the AMAZING guidance, service and organizational skills of our unique Tour Guide extraordinaire Patricia, to the professionalism of our driver Marcos; to ALL the great local guides we had during our tour, everyone was just stellar!!!!!! ALL the accommodations and their respective centralized locations were FABULOUS making it so much simpler to maneuver around town, ALL the breakfast spreads and dinners provided were fantastic and our midsize group (32) was just SUPER!!!!! We all 'clicked' and became a little family for 12 days. I can't wait to go on my next GATE 1 experience!!!!! Thank You so much for answering all my pre-tour questions and all your guidance with the train transfer, the timely arrival of our driver and just the overall service of your great company!!!!!! GATE 1 ROCKS!!!! Thank you again.Marta R. San Jose, CA
Our trip was absolutely fantastic! Our guide Marisa was outstanding, as were our drivers and local guides. I'm looking forward to future Gate 1 tours. Thank you so much!!Carol L. Annapolis, MD
Our trip was wonderful. Southern Italy, Pompeii and the Amalfi coast are amazing. We also took the optional tour to visit Otranto and the tip of the heel where the Ionian sea meets the Adriatic sea. The culture, food and wine on this trip were wonderful. People in Southern Italy were generally very nice. Our tour manager Antonella was enthusiastic and affectionate. The local guides were very knowledgeable and nice. We had a wonderful time.Chi-Ming H. Barrington, RI
We had a fabulous time on our 12 Day Tour of Italy! Everything was great - our tour guide, Vanni, was outstanding and bus driver, Claudio, was careful and kept the bus in immaculate condition. The itinerary was wonderful, all the hotels were great and well located and all the optional tours really added to our holiday. We loved the food, wine and beautiful scenery. We enjoyed every day which was full of incredible experiences. Thanks Gate 1 for a truly memorable trip!Diane B. NSW, Australia
We had a wonderful time. The best part was that we had Mercedes as our tour guide, she was very personable and made everyone feel like family and because of that we will definitely be traveling with Gate 1 again. Everyone in my group shared the same feeling. The hotel accommodations, transportation and festivities were excellent from start to finish. The selection of restaurants was amazing, good food & good company. Mercedes always had a little surprise for the whole group after we had visited the attractions. My hats off to Luigi the bus driver for doing an excellent job through out the whole trip. So did I have a good time....ABSOLUTELY!!Vito C. Staten Island, NY
My husband and I were very pleased. We loved our trip manager Lyn. In addition, the guides, especially in Florence. The arts, wine and music was much appreciated. We will be happy to recommend Gate 1 to family and friends.Diana T. Scottsdale, AZ
We had an incredible time. The accommodations were excellent. Using the train in between cities was very enjoyable. All vouchers were accepted without question. Your customer service before the trip was also excellent.Daniel T. Cogan Station, PA
Amazing! We are still saying Ciao and Grazzi! You were right - that was the best trip for us - (Enchanted Italy with Amalfi coast) We hope we can go back again someday. The food, the people, the history, the culture...... Just wonderful! Thanks for getting us set up!Kay S. Elkins Park, PA
The tour was excellent -- lots of beautiful sites, delicious food, and fun memories. The hotel was lovely with a warm staff. Lynn was an excellent guide.Andrea R. Arlington, VA
It was wonderful. Glad I picked Gate1 again. Our tour guide Mhriam was the best. Very efficient, capable and personable. I wanted to take her home with me. Accommodation was great. Good location for hotels. All local guides very knowledgeable.Barbara R. British Columbia, Canada
Thank you so much! The trip far exceeded our expectations! Vivi was amazing as our tour monitor. She made our experience fabulous. We've been recommending gate one to all of our friends, and look forward to our next tour with you guys! Thanks for the amazing experience!Angela D. Alachua, FL
Fantastic! Tour guides were excellent and everything went off without a hitch! Really great! Will definitely use your service again and recommend your company highly!Julie N. Bishop, CA
This was our 28th trip with Gate 1 and one of the best. A beautiful, little-touristed part of the world with friendly people and delicious food. Great value too. The guide, Viviana, was "Top 3 best" we've had. She helped us connect with the people and culture like few others have done. Brava Vivi, bravo Gate 1.Richard P. Washington, DC
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
We absolutely loved our trip! The tour director Lynne was great and took care of all the details. The accommodation was fine, and we liked that every night was spent in one place so we didn’t need to pack and unpack all week. The pace was good, and so were the guides. Felt we got excellent value especially with all the included meals. Will definitely book again with Gate 1 in the future.Nicole C. Quebec, Canada
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

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
