I had a wonderful time in Peru with Gate 1. Just excellent. Very thorough tour guides/managers. Strong concern for safety as well as very well coordinated. Nice balance re: activities and free time. Hotels, food, transportation all very good.Steve L. Waltham, MA
It was a wonderful trip! We saw and experienced all of the sites we dreamed about. Edgard was the best guide we have ever had or could wish for. DavidDavid D. Twin Falls, ID
It was one of our most amazing trips. Very well organized. Machu Picchu was the highlight of course & we also enjoyed the Lake Titicaca floating Islands & the whole experience with the people there. Our tour guide Ronald was the best. Very knowledgable on everything & went out of his way to please. Excellent!!!Marion B. London, ON, CA
The Machu Picchu Express Trip was fabulous. I was worried that such a short trip wouldn’t include much but it fit into my time schedule. The trip was much more than I expected. Victor was an amazing tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about Peru, it’s history, architecture, and people. He related well to all members of our tour group. I would highly recommend this trip to others. Thanks for checking in with me.Kathleen S. Fort Collins, CO
Fantastic! My husband and I enjoyed Peru even more than we had anticipated, and appreciated the broad range of experiences and terrain that the tour covered. Another Gate 1 success!Rebecca Z. San Diego, CA
It was a truly wonderful trip. We saw so much of Peru. The guides who led our trip were phenomenal. I would sing the praises of Gate 1 to anyone.Miriam J. Greenbelt, MD
Thank you for asking. We had a beautiful trip. Hector, our trip manager, was professional, interesting and kind. The organization was just perfect. The hotels were well located...It was our first experience with Gate1 but we hope it won’t be the last!France B. St-Lambert, QC, CA
This was the best travelling experience I had staring from organisation, travel guides, hotel accommodations and choice of places to visit. Everything was great. I am more then happy to travel with gate 1 again in the future...special thanks to Edgar and Abelardo and other support staff on making my trip very interesting. Their knowledge was remarkable.Samira B Liverpool, NSW, AU
It was absolutely wonderful and exceeded my expectations. Our tour manager Pavel was extremely knowledgeable and highly professional. The accommodations and transportation provided during the tour were top-notch. For a first-time Gate 1 traveler, I was blown away and will not hesitate to book another trip through Gate 1 in the future.Patrick C. Apopka, FL
Our trip to Peru was great! Arturo Espinoza, our guide, was especially good: caring, friendly, knowledgeable, and effective at managing our group. The itinerary was well-planned, most of the hotels were good, and optional tours were outstanding. We're looking forward to our next Gate 1 trips in March to Southern India, Nepal, and Bhutan.Chris S. North Troy, VT
The trip was wonderful. Our guide, Edgar was very knowledgeable and helpful, and introduced us to many aspects of Peruvian life and culture.We will definitely consider Gate 1 for future trips.Mariana M. Goldsboro, NC
Our trip was outstanding! Could not have done this tour without Gate 1. Will definitely use Gate 1 again in the future.Ron K. Melbourne, FL
As usual my Gate1 trip was fantastic. But this time it was accomplishing my life long dream of seeing Machu Picchu! Everything was perfect from the driver, guide, hotels and tour!Roy T. Holbrook, NY
My trip was AMAZING!!!! I have lived and worked overseas for 20+ years, so I travel a lot. I have never used an organized tour company before, I always make my own arrangements and do my own thing, but the logistics of planning a trip to Machu Picchu and limited availability of tickets pushed me to try a tour for this trip. OMG, it was the best experience! The staff (guide Marcos Farfan, his assistant Aldo, and driver Wilbert) was fantastic, the logistics were flawless, the group was diverse/interesting/fun, and the value for money was exceptional. My opinion of organized tours has completely changed, and I will definitely be looking to Gate 1 in the future for another trip (quite possibly with some of my new friends from this one!).Larilyn R. Moline, IL
Our trip was wonderful. Our guide Edgar was the best, so knowledgeable and made everything run so smoothly along with the local guides and bus drivers. There was not one thing my husband and I did not like. We are so happy to have taken this trip since it was on the top of our bucket list. We are so impressed with Gate 1 and will let our friends know. This was our second tour with you, our first was China which was also excellent. Now we are planning our next trip in spring to Italy. Thank you Gate 1 for sponsoring the school we visited. It brought tears to our eyes and were welcomed with open arms. This was my husbands highlight of the trip.Barbara S. Georgetown, TX
Excellent! We had a great time. The tour guides Ronald and Ruben were so helpful and knowledgeable. The hotels were decent. We will definitely use Gate1 again.Jennifer Lynn E. Mt. Pleasant, WI
It was amazing! Our tour guide, Gary, could not have been better. He really went the extra mile for each of us through the whole trip, but particularly when we all faced a stressful situation with hurricane Irma. Gary made sure we each had flights and a plan to get us home safely. He went above and beyond on this. Aside from that, he was just the perfect tour guide - so proud to show us his country. The entire trip was fantastic- the best tour we've ever been on, and we've traveled with several companies. Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience exploring Peru!Jennifer L. Wichita, KS
We had the trip of a lifetime. Our guide Edgart couldn’t have been better. He was so knowledgeable and we could tell that he really wanted us to have a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone. From the accommodations, local guides, Alverto, drivers, food and especially Edgart, our trip was just perfect. I recommend Gate 1 to all my friends and relatives. I really don’t think you could beat them. We look forward to future adventures with Gate 1. Once again, we want to thank Edgart for making our trip to Machu Picchu one that will always be one of our favorite trips.Barry R. Walling, TN
We had an amazing time, thank you. I thought the tour guide Washington and his assistant guide Yutber were superb both in terms of knowledge as well as spicing up the trip for us and making it fun for the entire group. Loved the country, our group, and the whole experience. Everything went very smoothly for us and we would do it again.Irina A. Astoria, NY
Our trip to Peru was wonderful! Marcos, our guide, was exceptional. He was full of knowledge, very entertaining and had a very comfortable, easy personality. Our group was also a great friendly mix of people. The accommodations and meals were great as well. We will definitely be using Gate 1 Travel in the future!Tracie S. Las Vegas, NV
The trip was excellent and our assigned tour guide Juan was excellent. He took care of us and is one of the most organized people I have met. His experience, care for us, and love for his country shows while he made sure that we only worried about enjoying our vacation. Freddy was another excellent, attentive and kind guide who complemented Juan perfectly during every minute he spent with our group. The drivers were also great; our long trips were safe and smooth and they also greatly complemented the rest of your team. While the morning wake-up times and schedules felt rough at times, we understood that was necessary to ensure we did everything with time to avoid inconveniences or issues. Your crew was dependably and consistently there for us and we could not thank them enough. Thank you.Jose C. Oviedo, FL
The Peru experience was outstanding and the group was one of the best we have traveled with from Gate 1. The Amazon adventure was thrilling and the Canopy walk was well worth going on.Philip L. Rochester, NY
It was great! We thoroughly enjoyed it. Gary, our primary tour guide was fantastic, as were our tour guide assistants, local guides in each city/country, and bus drivers. The optional tours were interesting as well and totally worth it. Everything was well thought out and organized. I've always wanted to go to Peru and am fluent in Spanish but I really don't think I would have been able to pull this trip off by myself. While this was our first tour with Gate 1, I can definitely say that we will be back.Adam K. Carolina Bch, NC
It was incredible! Our guide, Edgard, was just wonderful. Knowledgeable, funny, accommodating, interesting, friendly- just a fantastic person and resource for Gate 1. Alexandra was also great. Your company has great resources and representatives in all of your Peru colleagues. The hotels clean with good amenities and the food was plentiful and delish. Appreciated the waters everyday too. The excursions were interesting, educational and fun. I have told all my friends to book a trip with Gate 1. I will be doing this again in 2 years with more nieces and nephews!Jeanne D. Chicago, IL
It was simply amazing! Very well organized! Kudos! The local Gate 1 contacts were very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. The accommodation was pretty decent and transportation was also good! Thanks a lot for making our trip successful and memorable!!Kofi D. Belleville, MI
I had a very wonderful experience with Gate 1 Travel in Peru. Didn't expect it to be that great! Our tour guide, Edson, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We all felt like part of a big family. I will definitely go with Gate 1 again.Noemi L. Miami Lakes, FL
It was more wonderful than words can describe; food, sights, shows, hotels and guide were all fantastic. Ruben was especially knowledgeable, considerate and made all 28 of our group feel like family. The visit to the school, special markets, restaurants and other ways of giving and sharing were impressionable thanks to Ruben. My daughters and I wanted to stay longer but we are planning to go to Spain with Gate 1 next year.Maddy F. Gilbert, AZ
Excellent. Great value for the money paid.Peter M. NSW, Australia
Our trip was great! We enjoyed that basically everything was taken care of for us while in Peru. Our tour guide, Odon, was absolutely phenomenal and we had such a great time because of him! Major thank you to Gate 1 for helping to make our trip the best it could possibly be!Krista K. Strongsville, OH
My trip was excellent, thank you. Guides and group leader were fantastic. Transportation and hotels very comfortable. Scenery and sights quite unforgettable.Janine R. Ontario, Canada
I have to say that for such a brief excursion, the wonderful memories of Peru will stay with me for a lifetime. The guides were terrific guys, especially Alejandro, who guided us through Machu Picchu, as well as the Cusco city tour and the ancient ruins on the outskirts of Cusco. And Etson did a great job of introducing us to the Peru- vian family that hosted the optional dinner! Kudos too to the local bus drivers who got us to - and - from each destination safe and sound. In short, I fell in love with Peru!David B. Grand Canyon, AZ
It was the trip of a lifetime! Our guide Ruben was like having a big brother to look out for you and assist you like we were family!! Julia and Ronald in Lima and Puno were top notch. Kudos to Gate 1 and all the superb guides for providing me and my partner with a wondrous joyous educational breathtaking trip through Peru. Visiting the elementary school was like a breath of fresh air – such appreciation and love from the children. I will use Gate 1 again and again and tell all of my friends to use Gate 1 for touring with pride and confidence!!Anne L. Port St Lucie, FL
The trip was FANTASTIC and I have nothing but praise for Gate 1 and your wonderful team, organisation, knowledge of the tour guides and the care you and they took of us. I am also greatly impressed by your contribution to the local schools in Peru and for allowing us travellers to be part of that. Thank you. I will certainly be recommending Gate 1 to all I meet.Dorothy N. Tasmania, Australia
Our trip was awesome!!!! Pável and Freddy our tour guides were incredible, they are the best. Pável explained to us everything, history, anecdotes and he share with us personal experiences. The best of the tour was the school experience. No words can describe how emotional we were. Machu Picchu is amazing!!! I had never seen anything so beautiful. Thank you Gate 1 and thank you Pável and Freddy for the best experience we have had.Leticia A. San Jose, CA
The trip to Peru was awesome The guide (Juan) was extremely helpful. Hotels were consistently clean & comfortable. This was my first trip with Gate 1 & I will be using you again.Vincent P. Port St Lucie, FL
Absolutely FANTASTIC!! Words cannot describe this amazing experience. We are spreading the word about how great our guide, Julio, was in immersing us in his country, culture, and people. Thanks to everyone at Gate 1 for your attention to detail. This was our first experience with Gate 1 and we plan on it not being our last.Evelyn R. Cleveland, OH
Our trip to Peru was absolutely awesome. Abel and his team was with us every step of the way!! He is an incredibly engaging teacher, full of knowledge and enthusiasm. The hotels were top notch and we enjoyed the additional tours we purchased. The tour is exceptional value. We will definitely consider Gate 1 for future travel.Shelley S. Sarasota, FL
It was a great trip. Lot of things to see and experience. Great arrangements, timely moving, good hotels to stay, meticulous. Great guides and drivers, Tour manager Mr. Odon was great. Look forward to more of Gate 1 Travel's tours in future. We did have a little elevation problem at height 12000ft, but nothing serious. Enjoyed the tour in general. Thank you so much.Ganesh P. Broadlands, VA
The trip was amazing! I couldn't believe how the guides went out of their way to help us! Marcos was our main guide, fluent in English, Spanish and Qechuwa. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, had a great sense of humor, and knew how to connect with his people. When we were in city areas where people in the community knew him personally or professionally, I could see he was greatly admired and respected. He went out of his way to help us sample food and drink, or get to know the inner culture and ways of life. I can't imagine doing this trip without him, and he earned a special place in my heart. Jhonn, who took us all around Cusco, was also fantastic -- I was impressed with his knowledge of art history, geology, cuisine, anthropology, and the behind the scenes information he provided us about the people and culture. Freddy, who helped in Cusco and Machu Picchu, made sure that everyone got up and down the mountain safely and kept us going. Big shout out to Freddy!! Our drivers, Miguel and Edwin, were enabled with super powers! Just when you thought the bus would never make it in some narrow street or with another bus passing you on a mountain road big enough for 2 small cars, they got us around without a problem. I felt very safe when they were driving. Marcos said, "the risk is you might want to stay". Now I know what he meant!! The hotels were top rate, the food was excellent, and the museum tour and dinner show were fantastic --- The show was as good as anything I have seen on Broadway! Now, I can't wait for my next tour!!Cathleen M. Ft Lauderdale, FL
Our trip was amazing. Our tour guide Elvis was excellent and a true asset to your company. He took the time to answer questions and went above and beyond to accommodate everyone. I would recommend gate 1 to friends. We had a memorable vacation and enjoyed seeing Peru.Lisa G. N Palm Beach, FL
Our trip was excellent. We are very pleased with all that Gate 1 provided on this trip and have been highly recommending your company to everyone and anyone who are interested. Marcos was informative, sensitive and professional in every sense of a "tour guide". He is an asset to Gate 1 bar none.Gloria C. British Colombia, Canada
Our Peru trip was great. We saw more than I anticipated. Our tour guide Oden did a great job, would highly recommend the trip and Oden.David H. Toledo, OH
We had an absolutely wonderful trip! Our guides and support staff could not have been better. I have already recommended Gate 1 to several others and will be keeping an eye out for any future travel deals. Absolutely 110% satisfied with the whole experience. Thank you!Kerra F. Wind Gap, PA
The trip was fantastic. Very well coordinated and the guides were excellent. Hotels and are travel companions were all top grade. We would definitely use Gate 1 again.Joseph S. Dover, DE
Great! We had a wonderful, unforgettable trip of a lifetimeAsuncion M. Woodbridge, VA
Our trip was wonderful. Henry and Felix did a great job. Our every need was attended to, providing a stress less vacation. Henry is amazing in his consideration and knowledge. The Cusco team is great. The trip was well planned and executed. Henry spent long days with us and then after he arranged our next day activities. Everything was taken care of, from tickets to sites, plane boarding passes and even paying for the bath rooms at Machu Picchu. All we had to do was enjoy. This was our first escorted tour with Gate 1 (we have done other Gate 1 independent tours) and we will be doing others.Dennis D. St Augustine, FL
The tour was perfect. We enjoyed all the places that we visited and we really enjoyed our guide and the local guides. We have taken several Gate 1 tours and Pavel was one of the best guides. He did a great job! We appreciate Pavel arranging a comfortable bus for the long drive to Puno. The larger bus was much more comfortable than the smaller buses. The people who were in the tour were a fun group and we thoroughly enjoyed the people and the tour. We look forward to future tours with Gate 1.Gary G. Cheney, WA
We had a fabulous trip. Our tour guide, Alejandro, was great. The hotels and all of the travel arrangements were perfect. Thanks so much!William R. Irvington, NY
There was a lot of "movement" and some early mornings / long days, but how else could we have seen all the things we did? We took some "time off" from optional activities, and welcomed the occasional break. All in all, well organized, well executed, and ?good value! Thanks.Carroll C Jr. Saint Louis, MO
