Brazil, Argentina, Chile & Colombia
We had a great trip, and Rapa Nui (Easter Island) was the highlight. Silvia was our tour manager, and she did a super job; not only organizing and arranging our activities, but also because she was very knowledgeable about restaurants and available services wherever we were. And Gino, our guide on Rapa Nui, was so good at painting a picture of the way things were that we could almost see the Moai being moved to their places on the island. And, thanks to Silvia, we were able to see the sunrise through the Moai on our final day.Jeannine M. Goodyear, AZ
The trip was wonderful and far exceeded all expectations! Silvia, our tour coordinator, was outstanding. She was attentive to the smallest detail and very knowledgeable of the area. We never saw her without a smile. Accommodations were wonderful and the meals consistently excellent. While all of our guides were exceptional, our guide at Terre del Paine, Chris, was outstanding. He conveyed his love of Patagonia with his hikes and gave us an even deeper appreciation of the area. The staff and crew of the Stella created a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you Gate 1. We look forward to taking another Discovery tour.Tom S. Fernandina Beach, FL
Our trip to Patagonia with Discovery was awesome! Each and every day was wonderful, and exciting, while experiencing the most mind-blowing natural beauty of the world. Our tour guide Gabriel is the best guide I have ever had on Gate 1 or any other group tour. Gabriel was in control, professional, courteous, helpful, entertaining, informative, kind, all with the upmost concern for group safety at all times. The Patagonia Discovery trip is unique and very special!Mary A. Edgewater, NJ
The tour was great! We had an amazing time in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. It was more than I could have ever dreamed of. Our tour guide Alex was excellent, and the group of people traveling with us were the loveliest people ever. The meals were the best, plenty of great wine. WE HAD A GREAT TIME! GATE 1 GETS AN AA +Sara G. San Antonio, TX
This trip was incredible...can’t put into words how amazing Antarctica is. I feel fortunate that I was able to spend a few days in Ushuaia and enjoy Tierra Del Fuego before the expedition. Sylvia is fabulous! She is incredibly organized, really kind, and fun. She was able to connect with all in the group..The MS Midnatsol is a beautiful ship that handled the Drake really well. They organize the groups so that things are constantly moving and all have plenty to keep busy with. I never felt as though I didn’t have enough time on land and was not rushed. They go with the flow and are able to come up with many contingency plans depending on the weather, seas, and overall conditions ... Sylvia was able to arrange an additional tour to Tierra Del Fuego park following disembarkation as our flight was very late to depart for Buenos Aires, she always went above and beyond. I highly recommend any Gate 1 trip as they have all been really great.Michelle L. West Warwick, RI
We had a GREAT trip. The weather cooperated, we saw spectacular scenery ... Our group was very compatible and our tour guide, SILVIA was THE BEST!!!!! This will go down as one of our favorite Gate 1 adventures!Stephanie S. Port Angeles, WA
The trip was fantastic with Easter Island being spectacular. Veni, our guide was also phenomenal. Wow!Cynthia H. Estes Park, CO
We just got back from Antarctica with Paola as our guide. I wish you could clone her. We could not believe how attentive she was to all our needs. She went way, way above what we would have expected, including personally calling us every morning to make sure we were awake on the ship, and even helping us get into our gear. We called her our mother, because she never missed an opportunity to take care of us. Please let her know how much she meant to us and how special we thought she was! And that went for all nine of us!Deborah C. Cohasset, MA
I had an amazing trip; the Glaciers of Patagonia were majestic, the waterfalls of Iguazú were spectacular, and the beaches of Rio were seductive. I left a piece of my heart in Buenos Aires.Heather B. Antioch, CA
It was excellent. All of the services promised by Gate 1 were carried out efficiently and as scheduled. Our tour guide, Rosana, was superb. Friendly and cheerful. Very informative. Helpful to everyone. Extremely well organized. All three places on the itinerary were fascinating. The included meals were very good. The included excursions were enjoyable. Even the weather was ideal.Richard L. Jamul, CA
... Our tour guide Miss Silvana was very energetic and kind and she was on top of everything. She is an amazing loving lady that we were fortunate to have her as our tour guide for the entire trip. Everyone in our group loved her and very much satisfied with her managing the entire tour.Suren M. Manchester, MO
Our trip was wonderful. This is our 7th trip with Gate 1 and I have to say that our tour guide Silvana was exceptional. Not only attentive to the group as a whole but she also took very good care of each and every person individually. Her professionalism, patience, kindness and pleasant personality is to be recognized and commended. Our group in particular meshed very well from the beginning and despite the differences in nationalities and culturally we quickly bonded. Making it for a really amazing experience. The highlight of our trip was Iguazu Falls for both my husband and myself. Truly special!Diana R. Orlando, FL
Outstanding! I will definitely travel with Gate 1 again and of course recommend Gate 1. Everyone was wonderful! Our guides were great; knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We would love to especially commend your company for Marco who was our manager guide ... But he was above OUTSTANDING! He made sure everyone was fine, together and on time. He went out of his way to make everyone feel safe and comfortable from our arrival to the minute of departure. He is truly an asset to this company. My daughter did not like to travel with any company, instead she made her own arrangements, however, after this trip she has changed her mind and commends you for such an organized trip. We loved it and you will see us back! Thank you so much for such a beautiful experience. By the end of the trip our manager had us all feeling in a family atmosphere. Thank you Gate 1 Travel!Cristina H. Chino Hills, CA
It was marvelous. Our tour manager, Noelia, was extraordinary: sunny personality, had everything organized, attended to all details, was so kind and helpful in every way, extremely knowledgeable and a terrific communicator. The trip covered main sights, and had a good balance. I can’t imagine anyone doing it better. The tour members were lots of fun, a diverse group, and everyone was very pleasant and fun. I’m hoping to have my third Gate 1 experience soon.Sylvia D. Laguna Woods, CA
This was our 5th trip with Gate 1 Travel. It was one of the best ever. Alex is one of your best tour director's ... He went above and beyond in customer satisfaction ... He took us on the guided tour, and pointed out all the dinning options. KUDOS!! To Alex for his attention to all of us in his tour.Bernard P. Attleboro, MA
We had a wonderful trip! The airline trip was really long but all the connections were ready and left on time. Ale was a terrific tour guide and kept us right on schedule! The sights of each place were great and lived up to more than our expectations! It was not too rushed to get from place to place and there was plenty of time to enjoy each experience. The hotels chosen by Gate 1 Travel were perfect. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Breakfast was great every day. We can’t say enough good things about the bus drivers we had every step of the way, always professional and friendly at all times. Bravo for our wonderful tour!Sheila R. SHAWNEE ON DE, PA
It was a great trip. Iguazu Water Falls is stunning, way beyond my expectations. The tour manager Flavio is very professional, warm hearted and helpful.Qiye C. Los Angeles, CA
We just returned from our 10-Day Classic Brazil and Argentina Trip, and it was absolutely superb. The hotels we stayed at were all very conveniently and centrally located, and the food provided by Gate 1 Travel was excellent. Special thanks to our guide, Lucas Davicino, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, who was very professional and an all around exceptional tour guide. We're already planning our third trip with Gate 1 Travel for next year!Wung K. Olney, MD
Our trip was absolutely brilliant. The itinerary was great and all flowed so smoothly. Our guides were outstanding, especially Noellia in Rio and Iguaco and Buenos Aires. She is an absolute gem, went over and above for her clients and was so friendly and helpful. I am recommending Gate 1 to all my friends! It was the trip of a lifetime for us.Kathryn B. New South Wales, Australia
This was our first Gate1 trip and it was truly wonderful. Everything was very well organized and detailed. Our tour manager, Silvana, was really great. She took such great care of the entire group, making sure everything went according to plan. The local tour guides Pablo and Marcela were both great as well. We loved all the sights we visited and the optional tours that were offered. We'll definitely travel with Gate1 again in the near future!Marina B. Staten Island, NY
We had an absolutely wonderful trip! Our tour manager, Alejandro, was so wonderful ... We saw so many incredible sights on our tour, including two of the Seven Wonders of the World. It was another great Gate 1 Trip. Many of the other passengers were on their first Gate 1 Trip and they all said they would travel again with Gate 1.Shabnam Z. Bothell, WA
Hi Donna, As always, Gate1 did a fantastic job - even the weather was perfect! We had a marvellous tuime, beautiful hotels in lovely places, excellent tour director and local guides.

It was great time! Out tour manager Pablo is an excellent person with deep knowledge. He took care of our group 24/7. Pablo brought us very interesting information regarding Brasil and Argentina. Our satisfaction is in result of his efforts. Thank you GATE1.Yan U. Roswell, GA
The trip was exhausting, intense but so magnificent! The guides were fabulous, knowledgeable and looked after us constantly. The highlight for us was Iguasu but Machu Picchu and the Uros Islands on Lake Titicaca were unforgettable. Accommodation was superb and the flights,coach and train trips were seamless,thanks to the organisational expertise. We had a lovely, friendly group...All in all, 10/10.Jules M. Epping, NSW, AU
Our trip was terrific, we enjoyed it tremendously and already recommended your agency to our family members and friends. I would like to mention the outstanding performance of our guide on the trip - Albano Garibaldi. This gentleman was a fantastic leader to our group, knowledgeable, likable, efficient, helpful, and funny. He is a great asset to your organization. Hopefully, we'll meet him again on a future trip.Eitan H. Palm Desert, CA
Had awesome time. Sole was a great guide, very organized. Patti in Chile was our best local guide we have ever had on our many travels. Frank and Margee van VlymenMargaret V. Blanchard, ID
Just beautiful. Again this was our 6th gate 1. And it was again beyond our expectations. Our tour manager Alejandro was excellent and very helpful.Dale A. Las Vegas, NV
My trip to Patagonia was absolutely remarkable. Nature of Patagonia, its clean air, the ever changing weather - we experienced all of it. I learned a lot about glaciers, history of the region, and saw amazing places that I captured in thousand pictures that will take more time to go through, as every image brings me back. The cruise to go to Cape Horn was wonderful. Going through the glacier alley was one of the main highlights for me. One special thanks to Noe, the tour manager for the trip and Buenos Aires guide, - she was outstanding. Her work behind the scene and enthusiasm and knowledge made a huge positive difference for us, and I was able to completely relax and enjoy the trip, while logistics and unexpected situations were seamlessly taken care by her. Our group had tons of fun. I am glad to return home with pictures, memories, and meeting new friends.Zoya V. Charlotte, NC
The trip was absolutely terrific. Albano Girabaldi the tour manager was fantastic as were the local guides in each location especially Enrique in Chile. Albano was warm, knowledgeable, competent has a sense of humor and helped facilitate group dynamics. The itinerary was perfect with the right amount of time in each location. Hotels were excellent and we were very impressed with the Stella Aurelis expedition ship. One thing that in particular worked well which was really by chance was the group mix, all very different but everyone got along well and mixed together. The group blended very well. In addition the weather cooperated and we got to see Torres Del Paine and land on Cape Horn. It was a very successful trip and there really wasn't anything we would change.Arlene B. New York, NY
Our trip was wonderful. Our guide for the entire trip, Marina was absolutely the BEST. She was knowledgeable, extremely pleasant and very helpful. Loved every moment with her.Sue D. Haupppauge, NY
Our trip was wonderful, Gate 1 really does a fantastic job on picking their tour guides, how they lay out their trips, where they go and what is included. Another wonderful tour with your company and Patagonia was just beautiful, never experienced before such forceful winds of Mother Nature, beautiful landscape!Lillian C. Parson, BC, CA
It was an amazing trip. Very much on the other side of the world. Will definitely recommend it to others. Our tour director Veni was amazing.Sharen G. Mount Pleasant, WA
Our 18 day Classic Tour of Brazil, Argentina and Peru was fantastic!

My trip was fantastic!!! I had great time in So America, I learned a lot, had wonderful experiences, visited awesome places on planet Earth. It all was possible because of your company. Schedule was right for me, and I always sign up for all the optional tours because they provide unique experiences. It was such a pleasure to travel in Brazil and Argentina with Marina Ferina. I was really impressed and enjoyed her knowledge and humor, delightful attitude and motherly care about every person in the group, she is a star in your company. I had a great experience in Peru, our tour guide was Carlos Yepez. Passionate about his country, caring, and good leadership. The local guide to Uros islands on lake Titicaca and Sillustani Tombs was Marita Tito. Wonderful story teller, performer, and educator. We really enjoyed her company and knowledge. I am very grateful for every single moment that I had on this journey, and will travel with Gate 1 next year. Africa perhaps?Valentyna L. Chicago, CA
Absolutely fantastic. We were really impressed with Gate 1. It was a busy time, but the guides were super organized, knowledgeable and efficient!!

I can't imagine doing a tour with anyone other than Gate 1. Outstanding!!Ian B. NSW, Australia

We had a great time! To start off our tour guide was lovely, Karen. She was so sweet and easy to get along with, but very professional at the same time. All the local guides we had were so knowledgeable and seemed to be very glad we were visiting their country! We were happy with the hotel locations. One may have not been as nice as the others but the extras we did there made up for the hotel. Very pleased with the trip.Pamela H. Lynville, IN
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip to South America with Gate 1, no glitches, nice hotels and a wonderful tour guide, Sole!Brian B. Alberta, Canada
