My trip to Dubai was amazing. The best trip I have taken with Gate 1 so far. :) The attention from the Gate 1 personnel was great like always and our tour guide Lourdes was very knowledgeable. I couldn't think twice to take another trip to Dubai with Gate 1.Lynec C. Miami, FL
The trip was fantastic. The hotels were great and a lot better than we expected. The tour guide was amazing and knowledgeable. Thank you very much for providing affordable trips! We are looking forward next trips with your company soon.Lien N. San Jose, CA
It was fantastic! We had a great time, everything was PERFECT!! Shannaz and the drivers and the greeters did a GREAT job!! We enjoyed the good guidance and information, the welcome reception, etc. The whole trip went well, we had a wonderful time.Ivonne C. Miami, FL
We had a wonderful time. Appreciate travel tips provided by Gate 1. All guides and drivers were efficient and professional. Hotel was excellent and staff were friendly and provided excellent service, especially Marites in the dining room.Lillian J. Daly City, CA
Dubai was wonderful. The itinerary was great. Our guide was very personable and shared a wealth of information about the country and culture with us. The highlight of the trip was the masque and desert safari.Cheryl J. Garnerville, NY
Our trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi over Christmas surpassed every expectation we had. What an eye opener to another part of the world. The trip was very educational. It was packed with activities. The hotel accommodations were top notch. The food was good and varied. The bus driver was experienced and a safe driver. The highlight of the trip was our guide, Attia S., a/k/a Tito. He was bright, educated, well versed in the culture and sights, humorous, and spoke perfect English. If we were a rating service, this Gate 1 trip would be at the top of the scale.Debbie P. Circle Pines, MN
We are still jet lagged and also in awe about the "cultural immersion" tour of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The cultural diversity of these two mega cities was something that we did not expect to see, especially in this part of the world. Nearly 85 percent of the population is comprised of expatriate workers. This is our second tour with Gate 1 Travel and we will gladly do it again. Credit goes to our knowledgeable tour guide Mr. Attia from Egypt.Edgar S. Fairfield, CA
The trip was fantastic! We would absolutely use Gate 1 again. In particular the two tour guides were superb!! Shalini guided us on the half day Dubai city tour and the full day Abu Dhabi tour. She is the BEST guide we have had any time anywhere. She MADE the two tours! Amy (I think that was her name - it was so much easier to pronounce we thought we'd easily remember it. I hope we did.), our guide for Sharjah, was also terrific. She knew so much about Sharjah having lived there that the morning with her was fascinating. Super, super, super. Kudos to Gate 1 for finding such capable ladies.Judith P. Houston, TX
I have been adjusting back to my time zone but had in incredible time in Dubai. So glad I was able to go & have been recommending Dubai & Gate 1 to friends. Can't wait to get another stamp on my passport.Joy L. Hickory, NC
My husband and I had an excellent time! This was our first time using Gate 1 and we were satisfied with every aspect of the trip. Gate 1 gave much attention to detail. Our schedule and the sightseeing stops were excellently planned. We definitely plan on using Gate 1 in the future. Thanks again.Mahada M. Hagerstown, MD
I can only say it was fabulous. From the flight, to the hotel, and the one day trip to Abu Dhabi, I would highly recommend the trip.Verna S. Brooklyn, NY
I'm speechless by how amazing it was! Gate 1 will be our go to for all our future getaways. Our tour guide Attia was not only kind but a walking History Channel! Gate 1 is lucky to have him on board. Thank you for the amazing experience!Gilda A. N Miami Beach, FL
My trip to the United Arab Emirates, Dubai. & Abu Dhabi was an exciting and breathtaking experiences, what a great place to visit. Starting with the plane ride, food, hotel, tour guides, greeter, the sightseeing, bus drivers the people at the hotel. The kindness and hospitality treatment and anyone I came in contact with was great from every aspect. I had an overall peaceful and safety trip.Gwendolyn T. Philadelphia, PA
The trip was comprehensive, exciting, and just the interactions among the Emirates was fantastic. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see Dubai/Abu Dhabi and its' beauty. Our tour guide Amer was excellent. From the camel rides to the barbecue, and the Grande Mosque and fantastic accommodations, we could not have been more pleased. There was so much history I learned about the country. Thank you for a well planned informative trip.Patricia W. Ambler, PA
A wonderful, exotic adventure. Already plan to visit again, only for a longer period. Everything was handled professionally and expertly. Thoroughly enjoyed the desert ride and dinner and the Dhow dinner cruise. Lourdes (Lu Lu) was very knowledgeable. Look forward to my next adventure!Karen N. Arlington, VA
I'm quite pleased with how well-organized the entire tour was and the selection of hotel, food, sites to visits. The professionalism and well-knowledgeable Gate 1 Travel staff in Dubai were awesome and to be commended. Highly recommended and will definitely consider Gate 1 Travel again in future travels. Thank you for such an educational and enjoyable tour.Irene T. Hoffman Est, IL
We had a wonderful time. We had a full schedule during our trip. We enjoyed our desert safari tour.Terestia F. Kissimmee, FL
Dubai was fantastic! Gate 1 provides an excellent tour for the price. This year was even better than last: lodging, transportation; information about the culture, sightseeing and shopping. Marvelous! This is definitely NOT my last excursion.Greta S. Oklahoma City, OK
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! This truly was the trip of a lifetime. The accommodations were perfect. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about everything and everyplace. The people are so gracious and hospitable. There is so much history to learn about this up and coming region. We learned a lot about Islam. The Mosques are breathtakingly beautiful. We in America, have many false impressions that are quickly dispelled by seeing firsthand and understanding when taking a trip like this. The flights were fabulous, the food excellent, the people truly amazing. We are recommending Gate 1 and the value of what we received was excellent. Looking forward to another trip with Gate 1.Jeanette J. New Iberia, LA
The Dubai-Abu Dhabi tour was excellent. I was especially pleased with the variety of activities. There was a good amount of free time which enabled me to see/do things that were not included in the tour. Our tour guide, Shahnaaz, was excellent, very personable and knowledgeable. The Gate 1 representative, Sunil, was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this trip to friends.Thomas W. Palm City, FL
I've gone on many trips with Gate 1 and this one was the BEST EVER!! The destination was exciting, the tour guide was excellent, the accommodations were first class and the included excursions were wonderful. Gate 1 always delivers what it says it will deliver, and this time it exceeded expectations. Good job, Gate 1!Sarah V. Madison, WI
It was the most wonderful trip we ever had. Gate 1 made it so easy , so educational. They were so organized from the first minute till the last minute. Many thanks to you and your company . Hope to travel again with your company.Shahnaz M. Pasadena, TX
I had a great time. Dubai is very clean, safe and westernized. Very satisfied with Gate 1 service. Guide was very knowledgeable with great sense of humor.Geraldine C. Lakewood, CA
I had a great time in both countries. Fell in love with Jordan, it's beautiful and has so many different landscapes. I'm ready for the next trip! Thanks for your assistance in the tripAna V. Bronxville, NY
It was fantastic, the Gate 1 people in Dubai did a super job. No complaints, best trip we have taken. The hotel was great, service, breakfast good selection. Tour activities, great job. There is no way we could have seen Dubai like we did on our own. Thank you Gate 1, we shall travel with you again.Persons G Jr. Frisco, TX
Great! Mr. Tito was an exceptional guide, patient, personable, knowledgeable. He made every day a joy, we learned so much.Amy B. Arlington, VA
The Dubai trip through Gate 1 was great! Dubai is such an interesting, advanced, pushing the limit - place. This is the first organized tour I've ever booked. I've backpacked 15 countries so this was a huge change of pace. Everything was smooth from the airport transfer, right down to the timed visits during the tours. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Dubai and the Emirates. We were impressed to learn so much about the "little" things that some guides wouldn't share. We felt comfortable and well taken care of. We would recommend Gate 1 to other travelers for sure.Janessa S. Nipawin, Saskatchewan CA
The trip was wonderful. Dubai was eye-popping and so modern - I call it a city of "superlatives" with the tallest, biggest, fastest etc. Astounding! Jordan was equally interesting in a totally different way - 2,200 year old Petra was the highlight for me. The Dead Sea experience also ranks at top of my memories. Beautiful trip. Thank you.Eva R. Hghlnds Ranch, CO
Hello Edward, my trip just was PERFECT!!! We are very happy with everything!! The attentions, the tours, the food, the hotel!!! Everything was terrific!!! Thanks you very much!! For sure we will go to take a trip again with you guys!! ThanksRocio C. Orlando, FL

Carol and I enjoyed Israel, Jordan and Dubai. We especially enjoyed our Guide Llan, he was the best for knowledge and organizational ability, Hasime from Jordan was good also. I love history and Ilan had lots of Knowledge.Robert M. Sydney, Nova Scotia CA
Everything went very well. No problems. The guides were great and very informative!Sandra M. Stockton, NJ
The trip was great, Mr. Amed was an excellent tour guide. All went well and the accommodations were top class. Thanks for a great tripThomas U. North Bergen, NJ
The trip was very nice. We had very nice accommodations, courteous and prompt assistance from the Gate 1 representatives in Dubai and an excellent, excellent tour guide. We decided to return a day early due to the weather on the east coast. But other than that, it was a terrific trip.Deberal D. Duluth, GA
We're getting home safe and we have to say that the trip is wonderful... This is the 1st time that we booked the trip with Gate 1 and we're very please with all the services that Gate 1 provided to us at Dubai, from the greeting at the airport (1am in the morning) to the knowledgeable, caring, sweet (Shanaaz) tour guide, not to mention the organizer (JR) made everything smooth. And the hotel is very nice, clean, comfortable, the staff is very helpful and respectable. Our family like the trip very much and thanks to Gate 1 made it happen for us. We definitly will book with Gate 1 again in the future.Kim T. Edmonds, WA
The trip was very good. The tours, the guide Attia, the hotel and the meals were all excellent. Overall we were very pleased with how things went. This was our fourth trip with Gate 1 and all have met our expectations.Raymond R. Vancouver, British Columbia CA
Great trip, we really enjoyed it. Our guide Attia was very knowledgeable and enjoyable. Our accommodations were excellent and the tours were great as well. Thanks. This was our first trip with Gate 1 and we are looking forward to our next.Anthony F. Corinth, TX
We had an awesome trip! Everything was organized very well. Our tour guide Lourdes was amazing. She gave us so much interesting information about the country, its history and culture. Dubai is a beautiful city and Gate 1 is a fantastic travel company. We have been traveling a lot. Most of the times we have been taking not escorted tours. Since this was a trip to "another world" we decided to go with Gate 1. It was our first trip but not the last one. This is just the beginning of our new adventures. I keep telling everyone about our trip and Gate 1. We have a lot of beautiful photos. I was uploading some on the Gate 1 website two days ago but I am not sure if you guys got them. I also wrote an email. Great hotel and food. Tours were nice. Lourdes was great! Thank you Gate 1 and I am looking forward to the next trip. Probably around spring break.Ewa M. Parma, OH
The trip was filled with wonderful experiences. The time spent there we were able to visit many places and gain experience about life, culture and lifestyle of the local people. I can honestly say that Dubai is a city of the future. We really enjoyed the view and the beauty there. We thank the organizers of the trip for their job well done. I definitely would go on another trip with Gate 1.Iliana G. Phillipsburg, NJ
The trip was amazing. The tour guide Ameer is a wealth of knowledge!Tiara N. West Palm Bch, FL
It was great!!! Loved the entire tour!! Especially loved that there was ZERO confusion getting two and from and airport and hotel. Excellent service as well. Looking forward to my next Gate 1 trip.Jessica W. Plano, TX
The trip was wonderful. Our Tour Guide Attea and coordinator Walter are to be commended for their very hard work.Pearl J. Stone Mtn, GA
The trip was fabulous!! I will definitely be traveling with Gate1 in the future.Latishia, C-A. White Plains, MD
It was wonderful. We had a great experience. Our tour guide Shanili was awesome.
Will definitely use your company again. Thank youVlada U. Chittenango, NY
Our trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi was very interesting and full of great, modern things to see. Our guide "TITO" was very good, knowledgeable, professional and nice.Bogdon C. Sugar Land, TX
We had a very joyable trip. Your staff, Walter, Munir and Mohammad were very, very helpful and kind. They made sure that our trip is full of fun. My sister and I told Munir at the beginning of trip what we wanted to do, and he made sure that our wishes are fulled from eating camel meat to wearing a traditional head cover during Safari. Mohammad helped us a lot during Safari evening, and was always kind to take our countless pictures whenever we requested. Munir provided us a lot of detailed information about Dubai and Abu dhabi. We are very pleased with your staff; these three people are certainly the gems of your Dubai's destination. We would love to take a trip again with your company.Amna K. Alberta, CA
Our trip was fabulous. This is the 3rd time we used Gate 1 and was very pleased. Our tourist guide Shaline was very kind and very friendly. She has a sincere love for what she is doing. The desert safari was too much fun. The tour of the Gran Mosque was magnificent. We will definitely use Gate 1 again .We are looking forward to our next trip.Isidro A. Ocala, FL
Our trip was really good. From meeting us at the airport to final good bye Mr. Walter was a gem.
My friends and I were amazed at the quality of the hotel in Dubai. The Crowne Plaza was terrific, and the discount given to Gate 1 travelers when eating at their restaurant Brioso was really pleasant surprise, and the food there was very good.
Our tour guide, Amer, was truly a font of information delivered in an informative way. We certainly learned all we need to know about this area of the world. We had enough free time to do a couple of things we added to the day. We went back to the marina district for a brunch at the Observatory on 52, a lovely restaurant with views to die for.
I loved dune bashing, my friends not so much. They were terrified, Walter was in our car so we finished in a hurry. He was so mindful of his guests it was really nice of him. The entertainment at the Bedouin camp was terrific.
We cancelled our trip to Sharjah, we were quite tired and need a morning to rest. Abu Dhabi trip we felt should be before Dubai. The drive there and then back to Dubai for our plane home was a bit too much. We should have been made aware when making our flight plans that that would happen.
Holiday Inn was quite nice but way too far from the Corniche. It was without doubt the nicest Holiday Inn we had see. Our room was nice and big, travelling 3 in a room can be dicey but not on this trip.
The tour of the Grand Mosque was magnificent and again Amer told us everything we needed to know. It was the hottest day of the trip I was amazed the mosque was air conditioned, imagine the cost of that. Just kidding
All in all, I was more than delighted with this trip and yes, we will definitely us Gate 1 again.Linda G. Waretown, NJ
The trip was fantastic! It was our first Gate 1 tour but won't be our last. Everything was beyond our expectations including the flights, accommodations, tours, guide and logistics. Emirates Airlines was incredibly comfortable in economy class. My husband and I are both 6 ft tall and we had ample legroom and slept soundly - unlike any U.S. airline these days. Airplane food, service and entertainment were all top notch.
The Hyatt Place hotel was new, the rooms spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast buffet extensive and delicious. The welcome dinner buffet was terrific, and gave us a chance to begin to know our lovely travel mates.
Our guide was knowledgeable, interesting and tireless. We were with her from 9AM to 8PM one day and 8:30AM to 10:00PM another day without much down time for her. Even though we encountered a severe sandstorm the day we went to the top of the Burj Kalifa and had zero visibility, our bus driver managed to get us around the city safely and we returned to see some of the other vistas we missed on another day to make up for it.
The included tours were packed with breathtaking sights and experiences in Dubai and Abu Dhabi that made the value for money unbelievable! There was just the right amount of time to explore on our own and the Dubai metro is clean, safe, cheap and easy to navigate. We took the optional Desert Safari and it was a highlight of the trip. So much fun! Thank you Gate1, for making this such a memorable vacation for us!Linda Y. Spring, TX
Our trip was great. Everything went according to plan. Emirates Airline agents were very accommodating and seated my husband and I very comfortably to assist in taking care of me and I did not have any health problems. Our tour guide Shalini was very kind and knowledgeable and she is a very dedicated person. Sunil was very organized and diligent and patient. We had a very memorable tour and look forward to another one soon . My husband and I would like to visit Rome and Prague sometime in the future so if you have any info ,keep us updated.Brenda G.
