Fantastic! The journey, cruise, land, northern lights!, scenery, food AND the best tour guide ever! This was one great trip.Darleen W. Media, PA
Our trip was fantastic. It was the perfect introduction to Iceland, and we're already planning our next trip back. Our tour manager and driver were both great, and really made our trip fun and worry-free. We wish we could have spent more time there, but we have pictures and memories that will last forever.Michael S. Silver Spring, MD.
The trip was wonderful. Comprehensive and the guide, Victoria, was excellent. She has a great knowledge of the countries and told us so much information. She is a very good guide!! Goes out of her way to help everyone and looks after the older people. Eric was the driver and also so helpful and courteous. It was one of the best trips I have been on.Karyn R. QLD, Australia
We had a great time in Norway! It was an excellent tour...from the transfers, to the itinerary, to the hotels, to the free times, to the coach, to our driver, Jan, and most especially to our tour guide, Stephanie... everything is excellent! Norway is truly magical, with intense natural beauty, and indeed a once-in-a-lifetime destination. Thank you Gate 1 for showing us the world for less! More bookings coming...Rosemarie E. Bronx, NY
Our trip was fabulous! I've already recommended it to friends and co-workers. Stephanie is an absolutely fabulous Tour Director who made everything on the trip perfect! We are very lucky to have her as our Tour Director! The hotels were great; the meals were really good; the bus was first-rate; the driver, Eric, was excellent. It couldn't have been better! Thanks so much! My wife and I will definitely take more Gate 1 vacations.Stuart W. Los Angeles, CA
The trip was wonderful!. We enjoyed the sight seeing tours in Norway, it's a WOW! Denmark and Sweden's country side scenery is beautiful. Copenhagen rocks! Had an excellent local guide in Copenhagen and an outstanding tour manager and coach driver. We're lucky to have them.Diosdada M. Vacaville, CA
We had a wonderful time with Gate1 in Norway. Our tour guide Stephanie was very informative. I felt like I learned so much about the country. The fjords were beautiful as were the mountains. Can't wait to book our next trip!Christin G. Madison, WI
Our trip to Norway, Sweden, and Denmark was fabulous. Our guide Stephanie was great. She kept the group organized and was very informative. We really like the city of Bergen and the location of our hotel could not have been better. For us, location is everything. We also really liked the hotel for our second stop in Oslo, which was up on the mountain overlooking the city. This was my 8th trip with Gate 1 and I will continue to be a Gate 1 traveler after this trip.Heather O. Greenfield, WI
Our trip to Norway was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Judit, our guide was superior. She was the best guide we have had on group trips with Gate 1 and other companies. The other guides were also very good but Judit was just stood out because of her attention to our needs, her in-depth knowledge of Norway and how she shared it, her friendliness and availability.Jean S. Jackson, NJ
Our Norway Experience and Hurtigruden cruise was fantastic. Our guide, Judit, was excellent and made the trip so much more than a sight seeing trip. She taught us so much about Norwegian history, culture, economics and government. We truly understand why Norway is the "Happiest place on earth"!William S. New Ulm, MN
Yes!!!! It was a fantastic trip!!! My wife, Pam, and I--along with our 4 friends--enjoyed traveling through Scandinavia with Gate 1. Mattias was a great, and very humorous, tour guide. Looking already forward to our next Gate 1 trip to Morocco in November.Mark C. San Lorenzo, CA
Our trip of 12 days to Norway's mountains and fjords was fantastic and more than I have expected! Our guide, Marie, was wonderful, thoughtful, knowledgeable, with a sense of humor wrapped everything under control. So it is a wonderful trip and I would take Gate 1 trips again, no doubt!Martha C. Rocky Hill, CT
The trip to Norway was an absolutely wonderful trip. This was my first time traveling with Gate 1, and I will surely use you again. I particularly want to commend our Tour Guide, Marie, who was excellent. She consistently went above and beyond to make sure her guests were comfortable, informed, and in the right place at the right time. For example, she kept us engaged while the boat was sailing with presentations on various topics: the economy, education, Norway's involvement in World War II, etc. that were well organized, concise, and extremely informative. She delighted us with her charming stories. No detail was overlooked. I know she was the key to making my trip to Norway with Gate 1 an outstanding experience.Donna V. Collingswood, NJ
GREAT! Loved Norway and thinking about our next trip there to do the coast line. Our tour manager, Marie, was one of the best we have ever had. Lots of fellow traveler were first timers with Gate 1 and they were very impressed with the the trip. We always tell everyone that u are the best and we do not look at any other tours.Marilyn L. Charlotte, NC
We had a wonderful time. It was my first trip with Gate 1 and I was delighted with the experience. The guide Marie was exceptional. She was the best guide I have ever had. Thank you so much for all your help.Jane O. Mechanicville, NY
They were such beautiful countries to visit, along with an excellent itinerary.Gail M. Louisville, KY
Gate 1 has been the best travel decision that I've ever Made. Our Tour Manager Brigitte was amazing! We traveled through Norway with Driver Jon without a hitch. The bus was very comfortable, the Fram and the ferry were wonderful ways to see Norway. Our tour guides were full of knowledge and happy to share experiences. Again Brigette was amazing and I am ready to book With Gate 1 with tour Manager Brigette again to Russia or the Netherlands.Karen K. S Plainfield, NJ
The trip was great! The Norway part remarkable in its beauty. A highlight for me. Enjoyed all the places we visited as well as the nice compatible group and the fantastic guide, Marie. Thank you for all your help; the trip could not have been better Hope to work with you again.Margaret L. Philadelphia PA
We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide and driver were great and the itinerary gave us a very good overview of Norway. Gate 1 does an excellent job.James B. Austin, TX
It was great. Thank you for all of your help. Mom was able to find her grandmothers village with the assistance of our wonderful bus driver, Eric. What a gorgeous country!Marlys R. Cabin John, MD
We had an excellent trip with fantastic views in both Norway and Iceland. Would contact you in the future for the next trip. Excellent service!Kelvin T. Sunnyvale, CA
The trip was wonderful. The trip was organized very good and very professional. Especially I want to tell you about our tour guide - Birgitte. She is a very professional, knowledgeable guide. Everywhere we where on time. She is a very smart wonderful person. Our big "Thanks" to her. She did our vacation unforgettable. Thank you very much to "Gate 1" too. We will continue to work with your company, especially because of Birgitte.Anna D. Minneapolis, MN
It was wonderful!! The scenery in Norway was extraordinary including fjords, glaciers, high snow-covered mountain tops and much more. Our guide, Marie Lucey was helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and exceeded what was expected. Jan, our driver maneuvered the most difficult areas with precision and skill and was friendly and helpful. It was truly a great holiday.Janice C. Jacksonville, FL
I was very happy with the Scandinavian 11 day trip. Our tour manager, Marie, was wonderful. Her enthusiasm, kindness, and energy made everyone feel welcome and relaxed. She went over and beyond expectations. Our driver Jan, was the best and got us safely to each destination. This was my second trip with Gate 1, and look forward to my next adventure. The highlight of the trip was the ferry on the fjord, and the train ride through the mountains.Mary S. Saint Johns, FL
It was great especially Norway. Our tour director was great and went above and beyondNancy B. Lindstrom, MN
We had a wonderful time. OMG Tour Director was excellent. She was so informative talked about the history of the countries we were visiting and was extremely knowledgeable. She made sure our luggage was handled properly by hotel employees, what a wonderful experience. She even waited until the last person on the tour was on the bus to the airport waving goodbye and wishing us all the best. She was awesome. This was the first time my husband and I booked a tour with Gate 1. We have used Trafalgar and Insight in the past. No more, Gate 1 has our business from now on. Keep sending those e-mails on specials.Bernadette T. Milford, PA
Great itinerary, wonderful hotel location with very helpful and friendly staff, transportation on time and easy to locate, and our tour guide, Linda, was the best. Iceland was starkly beautiful. A very good tour and trip with Gate 1, and we will definitely be back in touch.Mark C. Bluffton, SC
Our trip to Norway was a wonderful experience. The scenery was spectacular, the trip through the fiords on board ship was memorable. We loved every moment. Bravo to Gate 1!Ellen S. Sears, MI
This trip was perfect! I felt safe and comfortable everywhere we went and I recommend Iceland to anyone looking for some incredible views and a calm way of life. This is the second trip I have taken with Gate 1 and I will not hesitate to take another. You guys make it so simple! Thanks for everything!Angela B. Charlotte, NC
We had a wonderful time! Everything perfect! Highly recommended. Iceland is beautiful . My kids loved it too!!!Dalia G. Homer Glen, IL
Thank you for asking. The trip was amazing. The most beautiful landscapes with geysers, waterfalls, glaciers and the most spectacular Northern Lights visionary experience. The Gate 1 travel tour guides were very knowledgeable, provided great assistance and took care of all of our questions and needs. Thank you so much.Isabel L. Fort Pierce, FL
Please know how much my husband Bill and I appreciated the extremely efficient and top notch assistance of our Tour Manager Birgitte. We've traveled several times with Gate 1 and have been pleased with the guide service offered before but never have we enjoyed such perfection--in every instance--of a Tour Manager as we received from Ms. Birgitte.
She was the most hardworking, conscientious, engaging, informative, always pleasant Manager we've ever had!! Please extend our gratitude to her for making our trip to Norway unforgettable. She clearly loves her work and seeing others enjoy a super traveling experience. I also would like to compliment our excellent driver, who was always gracious, careful, courteous and helpful.
Now we look forward to our next Gate 1 adventure. Thank you!!William S. Houston, TX
I can't begin to tell you how amazing our trip was. This trip exceeded all of my expectations and Brigitte was amazing. I felt like we had enough alone time to explore and with the planned trips/excursions/itinerary we saw everything that we wanted to. I can not say thank you enough for the exceptional trip and Ms. Brigitte was the cherry on top. I have recommended your company to everyone I talk to and can not wait to book the next one.Natalie P. Kenosha, WI
We had a fabulous trip - great food, nice hotels, wonderful weather, and best of all: one of the finest guides we've experienced. We have always enjoyed the guides on our Gate 1 trips, but Birgette was so knowledgeable, helpful, and a genuinely nice person! She kept our group on schedule in a very good manner. I only wish we had taken the extension. Our group got along really well and it would have been fun to stay a little longer - our fault for not doing it. We love Gate 1!Virginia D. WDM, IA
We had a wonderful time on our vacation. This was our 5th trip with Gate 1 and we were very happy as always. Brigette was our tour guide and she was great. She took care of everything for us in a very professional way. Jan was our driver and we always felt safe.
We will continue to use Gate 1 and will tell our friends and family about it.Ron S. E Brunswick, NJ
Trip was wonderful, we enjoyed it very much. Our Gate 1 tour manager Marie was fantastic. Weather was sunny, bright and cool every day. We enjoy the smaller tour size (27-28 people) as it is easier to get to know fellow travelers. We would be happy to use Gate 1 Travel again sometime.William Z. Rochester, MN
Truly one of the best! Bjorg -our guide - was organized, very knowledgeable, and generous; she had a wonderful sense of humor and a congenial way with all participants. Our group meshed well; no one was late nor did anyone complain!
This was my 10th trip with Gate 1, and it ranks very highly. The country is
amazing; the weather, always a surprise; the itinerary, excellent.
Onward to our next destination!
It was great. Iceland is a well-kept secret. Mile-for-mile it has more beautiful scenery than anywhere we've visited. Our guide, Björg Ólafsdóttir, was simply outstanding. We were fascinated with her knowledge and all the interesting and sometimes quirky people she introduced us to.Jerry B. Stillwater, OK
The trip was great! The destinations were fabulous, the tour director was informative and organized, and the weather was perfect. Another successful Gate 1 adventure!Will W. Springfield, VA
I had a very nice time in Scandinavia. Norway tops anything I have seen in 50+ countries, simply for its scenic beauty! Our tour manager was very competent and experienced. All of the hotels were a good experience. This was my 3rd trip with Gate 1 Travel and I have another scheduled in September. I have used many tour companies in the past and yours is perhaps the best in value for the money.Lawrence S. Greensboro, NC
I had a wonderful, fantastic, beautiful travel experience!!! I don't know any way it could have been better! Your tour guide was very informative and knew the area well. She helped me get my money changed, this was my first time traveling by myself, and she smoothed over any rough spots I encountered. Your travel agents were courteous, knowledgeable and efficient. I would not hesitate to book another tour through your company.Betty D. Alto, TX
We enjoyed the Imperial Hotel very much. Lovely accommodations and
restaurant and easily walkable to almost everything. We took the Metro from the
airport. It was so convenient. Why doesn't NYC have that! The second hotel in
Copenhagen could be described as a bed in a box. Very clean with very
Scandinavian design but the windows were not airtight. That could make
it very chilly in colder weather since the bed is directly below the windows.
When in Stockholm, we took the bus from the airport - also a wonderful thing!
The royal palace and the Vasa Museet were both fantastic. The scenery was most
interesting. My flights were all on time but I have to say that having a
layover in Iceland made for a long day in both directions.
