My family and I had an amazing trip w/Gate 1. It was our first time doing a tour group, and we were pleasantly surprised. We travel a lot but usually independently and get guides upon arrival. Liat, our tour guide for this trip, was amazing. She's incredibly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and well-prepared. We enjoyed the sites of Israel and would definitely recommend Liat and Gate 1. She was fantastic!Mailee G. Chicago, IL
It was wonderful, we were very pleased with your tour company. This was our first time but definitely we are going to travel with you in the near future. I can not praise enough the tour guide Gai, he was first class, considered very knowledgeable and courteous to everyone.Greta H. Farmington Hls, MI
It was excellent...I would recommend it to anyone. Every day was an adventure and every day we were well taken care of. We have memories for the rest of our lives. We could never make a trip like this on our own and with low cost efficiency like this one. You are #1 in the travel business as far as we are concerned!Raymond O. Darien, IL
The entire trip was very insightful and enjoyable experience from the information provided by the tour guides to the counties visited. It was undeniably the best trip we have ever taken. This trip proved that one must visit a place to truly appreciate it's wonder. We look forward to our next trip with Gate 1 Travel. Thank you again. Hashim who guided us through Jordan and Adina thorough Israel were better than anyone could ever expect.Halina G. Burbank, IL
The trip was fabulous!! Arie is a exceptionally wonderful tour guide and teacher!! It was like a full semester of history and archeology in just one week!! Very pleased with all that we saw and learned. Highly recommend this trip. My favorite Gate 1 tour thus far!!Elizabeth S. Eastham, MA
This was my best Gate 1 trip yet. First of all, I loved the Biblical history of both Israel and Jordan; loved the sites and excursions. Petra was awe inspiring; walking the signs of the cross in Jerusalem had so much meaning. The four-wheel drive in the Jordan desert was very interesting, especially teamed with tea and a lunch with the bedouins--I could go on and on. The tour guide in Israel, Uri, was fantastic. I thought that the poor tour guide in Jordan could never compete, but I was wrong. Hazim Mahadin was spectacular as well. Both men had a passion for their countries and their histories. They were always willing to answer questions; always friendly and helpful. It was so refreshing to get different perspectives on the Middle East and its people than what we see on our regular news programs in the US. I will highly recommend Gate 1 and these tour guides to my friends and family. A most memorable trip!! The only downside was the 2:20 am flight out of Amman, but that's a minor complaint. I always feel Gate 1 takes good care of its customers. Thank you!!Lorena C. Garland, TX
We had a wonderful time and two great guides. Loved the Marriotts in Jordan. We especially enjoyed Jordan; so much to see that we didn’t realize how much there was beyond Petra. Our guide, Hamiz, was our all-time favorite; he was so knowledgeable and demonstrated a real love and compassion for his country. All the Jordanians we met were so welcoming. We’ve never been thanked so many times for visiting a country.Virginia D. Wdm, IA
Our trip was really great and the tour guide, Ralph was very informative on history, religion and politics of Israel. We saw so much and the hotels were nice and comfortable.Linda H. New Bern, NC
We had so much fun on this vacation. It's our very first time to join a tour as we usually go on our own but we find this rather a better and stress free way of touring an unfamiliar place. We heard many good things about Gate 1 from fellow tourists who are repeat customers, so we will definitely use Gate 1 again in the future. Thanks for all the work you guys did for us.Joselito I. Hayward, CA
Great trip. Gate 1 was first class throughout. The hotels were nice, the Bus was new, the Tour Guide ... Leor, was informative and funny and we saw a ton of places. I am looking forward to using your services for my next trip.Chia C. Maplewood, NJ
Our trip to Israel was wonderful! We have always traveled independently, so it was with great apprehension that we embarked on an escorted tour. Experiencing a Gate 1 tour has really changed my perspective on world travel! We had very little concern about all the details of our vacation because they were all taken care of. We felt rather spoiled! As soon as we returned I began looking at out other Gate 1 tours for future holidays!Barbara S. Henrietta, NY
Our trip was fantastic. Our tour guide Sid was excellent. He was very personable and knowledgeable. We had a great time. Would recommend this tour to anyone.Bradley N. Dayton, TX
It was AWESOME! Our tour guide, Ophir, was exceptional. This was truly a trip of a lifetime. My husband and I said it was the best trip we've ever taken. This was our first Gate 1 tour but certainly not our last. We found the information to be very informative to prepare for this trip.Vicki L. Simpsonville, SC
I don't know where to begin to tell you how wonderful my trip was!! But, I'll try because I want everyone to use Gate 1 Travel and go see Israel. The travel was smooth, the hotels supreme, the food delicious, the sites remarkable, the tour guide very knowledgeable, and on and on and on....I can't say enough! Gate 1 seemed to think of everything! I was so impressed by our tour guide Nola. She knew and shared so much information with us, and she was so enthusiastic about everything, everyday!! I loved that! It truly made everyday an adventure! Even the bus driver Elly(?) was so very friendly, helpful, patient, & a great driver!! The overall trip was very organized & fun-filled. All the extra optional events were worth every penny. From the moment you left the hotel till the time you returned, you were learning something. The week went so fast, and I loved every moment!! ? I can't say enough about Nola, our guide; she really made the trip spectacular!! Definitely keep me on your mailing list because I will use Gate 1 again, for sure, and will share your name everywhere I go!! Thanks again for what y'all do to make it a wonderful experience!!Nancy T. Pearland, TX
It was wonderful, we loved our tour guide Arie and driver Moti! Tour was very knowledgeable and fun. One we will never forget and looking forward to other Gate 1 adventures!!!Ona D. North Bergen, NJ
Our trip was great. We had the most amazing guide, Uri. He went way out of his way to inform us of all aspects of Israel. The accommodation were top class and the food was first rate. All transportation went smooth and always on time. I have already informed all of my friends and family of this wonderful trip and Gate 1’s expertise Thank you and Uri we will book againZandra W. Ocean Springs, MS
We had an amazing time, we really enjoyed ourselves! The hotels were awesome, the guide was very knowledgeable and knew all about the places we visited, the food was delicious and the route was planned perfectly! We booked this trip as our honeymoon, next time we will definitely use Gate 1 for any other tours we want to take.Gabriel S. Brooklyn, NY
The trip was wonderful!!!! Everything ran like clock work, the meals were delicious, the sites we saw were amazing, and the guides went out of their way to teach us the history of the land. Our comfort and safety were their main concern at all times. It was truly one of my favorite vacations to date.Mildred S. Milwaukee, WI
The trip was amazing. Everything was very organized. We were able to see many sights in the short span of time. Our driver and tour guide were very nice. They really took care of us. The hotels and food were very good. We'll use Gate 1 again in my future travels. Thank you.Melita C. Chula Vista, CA
Trip was wonderful. Exceeded our dreams. My husband is raving about it to everyone. Everything was perfect from the hotels, guide, tour and local people. Loved it.Sheila B. San Francisco, CA
My trip was amazing. Rotham, our tour guide, was the best, lot of knowledge and professionalism. He is the one who made me want to continue using Gate 1 Travel again in the future. Service was great.Linda C. Houston, TX
We just got back from 8 Day Essential Israel and we couldn't be more pleased. We are not big organized-tour people but the price was so low we took a chance and are glad we did. We got so much value for our money! It was easy to book and we thought the customer service was great and very responsive. The tour guide, Mika, was exceptional, and the driver, Kobe, was the best driver we have ever seen. The choice of places to visit on the itinerary was terrific and the hotels, while all tourist class, were clean and well-run. We loved that the itinerary was kind of "modular" so was there was a ton of opportunity to either have free time or go on the optional tours. We took most of the optional tours and those were great too, and had the advantage of being smaller groups than the whole 38 of us (which was also fine). The audio receivers they issued were a game-changer so we could walk while Mika told us all about what we were seeing. We covered so much more ground that way. Everything was so seamless and easy! Our fellow travelers were all great too, with various backgrounds and ages, and we were like family after our experiences together. We would definitely take another Gate 1 tour. It was really terrific and would highly recommend it, especially this one to Israel, a land that is enchanting and is very safe. It stole our hearts and we can't thank Gate 1, Mika and Kobe enough.Kathryn W. Chicago, IL
Our trip was wonderful! Uri Mor was outstanding as our guide through Israel. We fell in love with the country. Thank you very much.Kimberly K. Las Vegas, NV
Overall the trip was great, but if I had to choose the most memorable part it would be the visit to Jordan. In particular, our tour guide Omar was fantastic. I've taken more than a dozen Gate 1 Travel trips and Omar was the very best guide I've ever had. No one could have done a better job. Everything was perfect right down to every detail. He was very passionate, professional, and knowledgeable with the culture and history of his country. His love of history rubbed off on all of us. I rarely visit a country twice, but I was so impressed with the sites of Jordan and our Tour Guide Omar that I would consider going back.Cynthia E. Arlington, VA
It was the trip of a lifetime. I saw tons of biblical sites. Our tour guide, Guy was very knowledgeable and funny and patient. I can't wait to book another trip with Gate 1. Thank you for making it possible.Racquel B. Vallejo, CA
The trip was exceptional! Our tour guide, Elon, was the most informed, engaging and efficient person we have ever had on a tour and his passion for Israel made each site come alive. We wished we could have stayed longer!!!!Reva C. Southport, NC
Our trip was really great. We are not particularly religious people and the purpose of our trip was to learn as much as we could about the foundations of the three major religions and also to learn about the conflicts that have existed in this area of the world for as long as I can remember. Our guide was knowledgable of all these things and he did a great job of presenting the religions and reasons for conflict in an unbiased manner. We saw so many things that it is hard to believe that we did all this in such a short period of time. As a result, at the end of our trip, we felt that we had accomplished our goals. Our trip to Israel was a success because of this.Stephen B. Brooksville, FL
It was a terrific trip and experience. Exceeded my expectations.Eneido L. Weston, FL
My trip was fantastic. The sites were amazing. The tour guide, Mr. Ofer, was knowledgeable and made everything easy and fun to understand. The driver made the ride such a pleasure. I am surely going back.Petrona H. Bronx, NY
It was fantastic! Gate 1 made it the best it could be. Adina in Israel and Hazen in Jordan were perfect guides. I could not be happier with my 4th trip with Gate 1.Stephen W. Austin, TX
Israel is so beautiful and awesome. We really enjoyed our trip. Our tour guide Adina was so wonderful, our bus driver was also very nice and very good at his job. We felt very safe in Israel. Thank you very much. We love Gate 1, we'll be back.Hai L. Richmond, TX
Wonderful trip. Uri was a great guide - his knowledge about Israel was amazing: we learned so much from him.Marlin O. Escondido, CA
The trip was fabulous. What a great experience for all of us who got to be part of the experience.Bernice A. San Diego, CA
Trip was extremely rewarding...met and exceeded our expectations. Itinerary was great, Schedule was efficient and tour managers very informative and helpful, made points of interest come alive. Hazim in Jordan was exceptional....not only with his information but also his humor. Accommodation was very good especially in Jordan and buffet breakfasts varied, tasty and appetizing. For us Petra and Wadi Rum are amazing destinations and should not be missed. This was our second tour with Gate 1 and will not be our last. Already spreading the word with friends. Thanks once again Gate 1.Kenute W. Miami, FL
The trip was fabulous! Loved our guide Anat and our bus driver Uval. Anat is such an asset to your company...she is so knowledgeable but also passionate. She was able to open the eyes of every member of our very diversified group from believers to non-believers, to people who did and didn't understand the conflict in the Middle East, to people who just wanted to cross off another country on their "travel" bucket list. She is truly an inspiring representative for your company, the country, and the Israeli people. The hotels were great, the food was pretty good, the travel was well organized. And as I mentioned our bus driver was great, too...courteous/fun, friendly and knowledgeable, as well as being a great driver.Juliette P. Somers Point, NJ
Wonderful! Everything ran so smoothly. The Tour Managers were awesome, the sites beyond description, food incredible and hotels amazing.Patricia L. Chula Vista, CA
It was a great trip with an excellent tour guide and driver. I learned a great deal over the trip. We are exploring a possible future trip to Ireland.Stephan L. Arlington Hts, IL
Really enjoyed it. The guide was great, the food was especially good and our group worked well together. Thank you.Gail M. Cary, NC
Israel is a wonderful country. The people are friendly and pleasant. Our Tour Guide and Bus driver are wonderful people, Rotem and Ezra. They were kind, and attentive. As group in the bus, we like them so much. The trip was a spiritual journey for I and my mother.Maria B. Brooklyn, NY
My trip was wonderful! We covered so much territory and had an excellent guide who gave us the current and historical perspective on Israel.Caryl W. Los Angeles, CA
The trip was absolutely WONDERFUL! Our guide, Mika, was excellent! She was professional and knowledgeable and fun. I plan to take this trip again soon.Valrie B. Morton Grove, IL
The trip was amazing. Mika, our tour guide, as well as our driver were both fantastic. The hotels were perfect. The farewell dinner was really nice as well.Amy G. Louisville, KY
Thank you Gate 1 for providing us with such a wonderful travel experience to Israel. Everything was excellent from the hotels and meals to the airport transfers and optional tours. I would especially like to commend our expert tour guide Adina for making this trip so fun! She was personable, knowledgeable, and created an uplifting positive atmosphere for the entire group. I would also like to praise the efficiency and professionalism of the Gate 1 staff in Israel. When we encountered a situation with our domestic flight to Eilat and with our international flight home, I immediately called the local number for assistance. What could have been an unpleasant event evolved into a memorable final 3 days of our 30th wedding anniversary thanks to the efforts of the Israeli staff. For the first time traveler to Israel, Gate 1 is the way to go!Ronald P. Bakersfield, CA
Our trip was wonderful. In addition to the expertise of Gate 1 in planning,our guide Ori made the made the trip unforgettable.Carol B. Tomkins Cove, NY
Very interesting trip. We learned a lot and enjoyed seeing all the history first hand. The side trips were perfect.Martin D. Ft Myers Bch, FL
Our trip was wonderful, couldn't expect more. However, I was exhausted by the time I landed home. Loved every minute. Our guide, Raya, was the best. She was so knowledgeable, in all religions. Perfect!!Beverley D. Winter Spgs, FL
The trip went very well. Wonderful guides, both were knowledgable, treated each of us as special, answered questions with patience, both went out of their way to show our group the best of Israel and Jordan. The trip was well planned, and thought out.Diane M. Tacoma, WA
We had a great trip, the guide Adina was wonderful & very knowledgeable. The hotels were good and the selection of sites was excellent.Michael S. Boynton Beach, FL
Our trip to Israel and Jordan was great! We had a wonderful time. The Gate 1 program in Jordan was perfect including stays at the Marriott hotels. Petra and Wadi Rum 4 wheel drive and camel ride, Bedouin lunch in the desert is amazing. I am glad we did it. Highly recommended to our friends. We are looking forward to our next Gate 1 trips to Croatia and China. We will do the Central Europe tour next year. Thank you for following up. I hope things are well at your end.Mienrado Y. Diamond Bar, CA
The trip was fantastic! From Jerusalem to the Dead Sea to the Galilee to Tel Aviv and down to Eilat, our short taste of Israel was unbelievable. Our tour guide, Noem, was phenomenal! He brought to life the historical, religious and present day events and opened our minds so that we can look, see and ask questions. Noem's patience and guidance made this trip extremely memorable. I have to give the highest praise on Noem's knowledge and genuine ability as he guided us around this beautiful, intricate country of Israel. We felt safe while touring with the group, as well as on our own in all the places we visited. Gate 1's attentiveness to all details of our trip added to our fun and enjoyment of this tour. I would indeed recommend this tour to others and am looking forward to another Gate 1 tour in the future.Helene F. Woodhaven, NY
