Scandinavia & Iceland
We had a wonderful trip and our Tour Guide Stephanie was excellent... she made our trip so special, sharing with us many stories, insights and her care for us was amazing. Thank you very much Gate 1!Maureen T. Laguna Hills, CA
It was great. We enjoyed the beautiful vistas of Norway, the land part was very nice and the ship was very comfortable. Minna, our guide throughout the journey was excellent and very knowledgeable about the locations, history and fact about Norway. This was our third trip with Gate 1, in the past 18 months, so we are very much pleased with your services.Andy & Carol C. Spring, TX
We had an excellent time, thank you Gate 1! Everything related to Gate 1 was smooth and well organized. The itinerary was nicely designed to balance group excursions with free time for independent exploration. Thanks for your good work to make it all possible Gate 1!Jodi F. Williamsburg, VA
The trip was wonderful and Malou was an outstanding guide.Linda T. Sarasota, FL
We had a great time! Sweden and Norway are beautiful countries, although we had rain most of the time, it was not heavy rain. We were able to enjoy such gorgeous views, ferry rides and great museums! The food was great and our travel companions were all fun! We also enjoyed the "home visit" that Discovery always provides. Always great interacting with the locals! We appreciate your assistance in putting everything together Gate 1. Got to plan the next one!Virginia M. La Mesa, CA
Our trip to Denmark, Sweden and Norway was great! The tour guide and bus driver helped make it so. Try and keep Miki and Odd together as a team- they made it more enjoyable for our group!Judy L. Norwood Young America, MN
It was a great trip! We saw a lot of snow, and best of all, saw the fantastical northern lights, with all of their colors, flights and shape. Our guide Matt was great. He displaced a nice personality with a sense of humor. Could not have had a better trip!Siu M. San Francisco, CA
My trip to Iceland was awesome. We learned so much history and geology. Iceland is beautiful with its waterfalls, hot springs, geyers, horses and black beaches. The Blue Lagoon was a favorite. Our guide was helpful and informative ... And we did see the Northern Lights which was a thrill. The guide made every possible arrangement for us to see the lights. All is good.Maureen S. Mount Laurel, NJ
Fantastic trip. This Florida girl was not looking forward to Iceland in February, but the cold was overcome by the warmth and friendliness of the Icelanders we encountered on this trip. It is truly a beautiful and magical landscape. Blue Lagoon was certainly a highlight as was the Northern Lights, which we got to see! We came away with an admiration for their conservation and use of their natural resources to enhance their every day lives. A great cultural, educational and enchanting experience. Can't wait to go back!Lesley C. Ocala, FL
Awesome! It was definitely one of the best trips ever! The scenery was spectacular & our tour guide, Matt, was great! We loved the cruise & really enjoyed being on a small ship, just lovely!Brenda K. Raleigh, NC
Our trip was AMAZING! ... It would be the first trip that my sister and I have ever taken together and I felt, at the time, not knowing about the company- I would be taking a BIG RISK! However...what a pleasant surprise! Our ticket arrangements were accurate and without complications, the hotel accommodations at Hotel Klopp was perfect, location, staff, cleanliness and breakfast was all outstanding! The best part was that whenever I called, and I did so because I was nervous about the reservation being secure, someone personally responded to my call and answered my questions or needs with respect - taking time to ensure I understood the issue. There was never a long wait time, or numerous robot links to get a connection and I felt that the representative was not only patient but wasn't inconvenienced by the call. I now recommend Gate 1 Travel to everyone that asks about my trip to Iceland and I'm looking to book another trip soon! ... I can't imagine why I didn't travel this way earlier. Live and Learn!Rochelle T. Tucson, AZ
The trip to Iceland was fantastic and we will definitely be using Gate 1 in the future for international vacations. Gate 1 takes care of everything and we were extremely impressed with how easy the trip was. Our tour guide Hanna made the trip even better with her vast knowledge and entertaining personality.Derek C. Tyrone, PA
My trip was awesome and I saw the Northern Lights! Our tour manager, Helga was very, very good. She told us the history of every place we visited but not only that, while traveling on the bus, she shared very interesting information about Iceland and its progress over the years. Our tour guide, Stephan who escorted us the second time to see the Northern Lights was also very good. He was entertaining and patient. Thank you Gate 1 for a well organized tour.Norma K. Astoria, NY

Cutler Bay, FL

Gugga and our new friends, who we met on the tour, made the experience even more fun.Bob H. Lawrenceville, GA
Trip was excellent, the tour guide was excellent, she left us in no doubt about what to expect, kept us up to date all the way through our trip.

The trip was terrific. Thanks for asking. We are a family with a wide age span ( 70, 50, 45 and 12). Everyone of us loved the trip. The raw landscape was breathtaking. Our guides were knowledgeable and helpful. The Blue Lagoon, at the end of our trip, was incredible.Carol D. Oceanport, NJ
The trip was excellent, I had limited concern as Iceland says they are a bit behind the curve in that the volume of tourists is increasing and their hotels etc are just now catching up , but I saw no lack of facilities. The hotel was good, the restaurants were great, the citizens of Iceland are very welcoming...Nothing could be improved upon , considering the geographies of the country, the trip, for me, was perfect. My tour director , Goodney and the driver, Augusto added very much to the enjoyment of this most pleasurable travel experience.Suzanne P. Olympia, W
Our Iceland trip was everything we have come to expect from Gate 1. A fun, organized, informative adventure. No other travel company provides a better value with such a high level of service. Our tour guide in Iceland, Hanna, was amazing. She gave us a better understanding of what it is like to be Icelandic with the perfect blend of history, culture, and personal stories. She made her country come alive for us. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone considering travel to Iceland!Stacey S. Baltimore, MD
We had a great trip with Gate 1 to Iceland. The itinerary was perfect. We had a wonderful time and a memorable vacation. The tour guide, Hanna, is the best tour guide we ever had.
