My trip was the greatest adventure of my life—breathtaking architecture, incredible tours (specifically because of our tour Guide Ricardo), magnificent events (Safari Desert Jeep Extravaganza, The Great Mosque in Abu Dhabi, Dubai Dinner Cruise, enchanting shopping in the Souks) — so wonderful and beautiful!! Dubai was on my bucket list, and the magical and amazing adventures surpassed my expectations!! One of the reasons my travels were so special was because of our tour guide, Ricardo. I’ve traveled extensively and Ricardo was knowledgeable, professional, courteous, kind, caring and admirable. He truly loves his profession and provided more than tour guidance, he created meaningful experiences for all of us—a special talent possessed by few guides. He deserves recognition from Gate 1! Dubai and Abu Dhabi have left an unforgettable impression of beauty, incredible technological advancement wonders, sweetness and love of the people and culture in my heart! Thank you Gate 1 for your booking agents, enthusiastic, talented tour guide Ricardo, nice accommodations, opportunities to make new friends, magical adventures and breathtaking experiences—truly a travel of a lifetime for me!!Sheila T. Olathe, KS
My trip was amazing. I had a wonderful time. There were so many activities to do and places to go. My tour guide made it even more wonderful. She was a highlight to the trip. I felt welcomed and informed from the time I arrived.Michelle N. Philadelphia, PA
Super fantastic, indescribably amazing. Culturally enlightening, most beautiful, clean, modern, and safe city I've been too. Far surpassed my expectations.Charieese S. Raleigh, NC
My trip was amazing. I traveled with my sister and we both enjoyed ourselves. I learned so much about this region. Mr. Attia was an excellent guide. He was organized, very knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor. He really made the trip a lot of fun. My sister and I participated in every excursion and we were so happy that we did ... The other things that I liked were the buffet style restaurants. The food was delicious, the hotels were nice and very clean. Our tour bus was very clean and comfortable and the seat rotation policy fit with the group. Also, we needed assistance from a variety of people, they were so kind and helpful. I really relaxed on this trip. My sister and I are hoping to visit Dubai again ... We saw some independent trips, but we really liked having the services of a guide. My next trip with Gate 1 is Canada. I am so excited again!Beverly B. Manassas, VA
My trip to Dubai was awesome! Gigi, my tour guide, went above and beyond in showing us the beauty of the UAE. She was very attentive to all of our needs and made us feel like her own family - as a matter of fact she called the group “Gigi’s Family”. I’ve traveled with other tour companies, but this was my first experience with Gate 1. Gigi really set the bar as far as tour guides. I plan to travel with Gate 1 again and have already recommended this Dubai trip to my friends and family in hopes they get Gigi as their guide.Alexandra C. Monrovia, CA
I had a phenomenal experience in Dubai. The Gate 1 Travel representatives/guide were extremely professional and helpful. I took the trip to celebrate my 50th birthday. I had the best birthday ever!Julia A. Jonesboro, GA
The trip was outstanding and exceeded my expectations! Our exceptional guide, Hend, deserves acknowledgement for performing extraordinary knowledge, professionalism, warmth and ensuring everyone had the best possible travel experiences!June T. Yonkers, NY
We loved it! We were very pleased with the activities, the hotel, and the guide. Dubai is a very interesting city!Carla B. Conroe, TX
My trip with my 3 girlfriends was amazing. Gate 1 you did an excellent job.. everything was done professionally and so organized. Ramy the tour guide and Sunil must be your best team members! Ramy is the best. This guy needs a medal ... so educated, kind, sociable! We loved our trip and can’t wait to find a good Greece offer with you guys for next year !Stephanie H. Kew Gardens, NY
Incredible time in Dubai! Did not know how this independent trip would be since we always take guided tours. Our stay in the the Novotel was wonderful, welcoming staff, clean and pleasant facilities, amazing breakfast! We were also happy that there were a few good restaurants, markets and the metro within walking distance. The optional tours were interesting, varied, and reflected the culture of the country. So glad to have booked all of them! The guides were punctual and professional. Needless to say each time we travel with Gate 1 proves to be an adventure. Interesting to note that we went with another couple we met on previous Gate 1 tour. Have recommended Gate 1 to many friends and family. Looking forward to Japan in April.Elisa P. Miami, FL
It was wonderful, amazing. Everything was perfect!Lori G. Oak Ridge, TN
Dear Maria, Our Tour of Dubai was amazing, covering so many places and experiences. The Tour Leader, Kris, was informative, entertaining, and willing to extend herself to cover everyone's needs. We will be recommending Gate1 Travel to all of our friends.Pauline H. Victoria, AU
Had a wonderful time. It was hard to believe that 20 years ago; Dubai was a desert. All the buildings were above my expectations. The Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi is something to behold. Both hotels were beautiful and our guide Attia was fantastic and went into great detail everywhere we went.John W. Clearwater, FL
My trip was phenomenal, amazing, mind blowing and spectacular...As it being my first time traveling with gate 1 travel I must say my expectations were beyond met plus more. Gate 1 travel took care of literally "everything" and it made for the traveler to do what is most important enjoy the trip...Our tour guide Chris was amazing she is very good at her job and made for a fun trip. Was very informative on the history of UAE. Our bus driver was so kind and punctual such a kind hearted individual. Upon arrival Sunil was so courteous, accommodating and thoughtful I never expected to be welcomed with such kindness. I wont lie when I first booked with gate 1 travel I was soooo skeptical but a few days during the trip I was already searching for my next adventure. I always wanted to travel for a living and although that dream is far and wide I can somewhat live it out through gate 1 services...I definitely will be taking another trip with gate 1 again once I save up enough but until then I will let my imagination take me on a adventure.Qudus I. Portage, IN
I LOVED it!!! The tour guide was incredibly informative and it’s an absolutely fascinating place to visit. My first trip with Gate1 but it won’t be my last. And thanks to you and all the others at Gate1 who do such a great job taking care of the logistics, arrangements, communications with the customer, etc.Rita W. Sacramento, CA
Our trip to Dubai was by far the most amazing trip I have ever taken! We were both absolutely fascinated by the country, the architecture and the history. Everything went so smoothly from the moment we landed to the day we left. The hotels were beautiful, the food was amazing and there are not enough accolades for our guide, Attyia. His knowledge of the area was absolutely mind-boggling. He had an answer to every question asked (and there were plenty!) and kept everything perfectly on schedule. Everyone agreed he was the best guide any of us have ever had. Since returning I have told so many people about this tour and many who had no desire to visit there are now planning on going next year. I may ever consider going again! Once again, Gate 1 lived up to our expectations and more. Can't wait to do another trip!Natalie G. Gilbert, AZ
It was the trip of a lifetime! I tried to post a review but could not find it on the site. Our guide Attia was so knowledgeable, explaining culture and religion, and the history of the region. We feel like we were immersed in a college course! The tours covered so many interesting sites every day. We so enjoyed 2 optional tours especially the dessert excursion, an experience not to be missed. We loved Dubai, until we got to Abu Dhabi, which we loved even more! Thank you from all of us,Dolores G. Merrick, NY
We enjoyed the trip very much, and thought that it was an excellent value. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are beautiful cities, and it was fascinating learning about the cities, their history, and the Emerati culture from our guide GiGi. This was the first time that we've traveled with Gate 1 and everything was well done and handled perfectly, in fact we've already recommended Gate 1 to others friends, and one of the couples just booked a river cruise with Gate 1.Drew M. Leland, NC
My trip was amazing. GiGi our tour guide was exceptional, very knowledgeable, funny, always ready to help and inform about our destinations, she treated us like family. We return with wonderful memories of our vacation to Dubai. Can’t wait for our next trip.Elcy N. Rockaway Park, NY
I loved it! Loved seeing Dubai! Thought everything was taken care of at the airport, the hotel was great and Gigi our tour guide was fantastic. The side tours were engaging. Would defiantly go on another Gate one tour again.Mary S. Everett, WA
My trip to Dubai went of without a hitch. Wonderful trip with beautiful people at a reasonable price - from Emirates Airline and food, to Hilton Garden Inn (Al Muraqabat) and staff, to the tours and tour guides, and the other tourists! No complains whatsoever. I will certainly continue to travel with Gate 1 Travel. Thanks again Gate 1 Travel!!Marilyn M. Whitsett, NC
The trip was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Dubai and Abu Dhabi were very nice and the Guide was extremely positive and enthusiastic. I loved Jordan, the Guide was witty and interesting, the hotels were all impressive, the service was impeccable at all three Marriotts, though Amman and the Dead Sea were especially good and I loved the historical and biblical aspects of Jordan. As has been my experience, Gate 1 came through in flying colors.Padrick P. Port St. Lucie, FL
It was awesome, we had a wonderful time. Dubai is a very unique place, we had no issues and gate 1 made it easyTyson B. Ann Arbor, MI
Fabulous—One of our best (and we’ve been to 56 countries). Attia was undoubtedly the best tour guide we have EVER had.Gerard W. Cockeysville, MD
Wonderful, wonderful trip!...The local office manager, guides, and drivers are top-nothch professionals and ensured that everyone was taken care of!Jeffrey G. Katy, TX
Trip was one of the kind. I really have to commend Omar, our tour guide in Jordan. He is well knowledge, caring and always on top of everything. The experience fantastic!! Everybody was caring and everything was a planedZunilda C. Aventura, FL
Gate 1 did a superb job as usual. Great itinerary, well planned and executed. The tour guide Shalini was very knowledgeable, helpful and ensured that Vegetarian meals were made available to me wherever possible. Now we are starting to plan for another vacation with Gate 1 possibly to Jordan, Israel or a combination of both! Many thanks for offering great vacations at affordable prices!Anu D. Mississauga, ON, CA
Thank you so much. Our trip was exceptional! We had the best tour guy ever. The hotel was excellent and food was delicious. We had a great time in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.Netsanet F. Beaumont, CA
Trip went off without a hitch. We were surprised at the efficiency, not used to being walked through airports. The air you booked was perfect. Tour guide in Dubai (Lourdes) was way over the top outstanding. In fact, we think Gate 1 should hire her to teach and inspire other tour guides.Mary R. Stephenville, TX
The trip to Dubai was absolutely amazing. This was our first non-escorted trip from Gate 1 so was not sure what to expect but it exceeded our wildest expectations. Everything went smoothly and we covered almost everything in that short period of time. Can’t wait for our next scheduled trip next year.Shabana H. Wheeling, IL
Thanks Joanne. It was Awesome!!! Thanks for making this a problem free vacation. Everything was well organized and amazing. Lulu was amazing. We had lots and lots of fun.Colleen Mae W. Bronx, NY
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
