9 Day Affordable Sicily, October 2018
The trip to Sicily was fantastic. I would recommend Gate 1's Sicily Trip to anyone. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our tour guide Flavia. She was kind, helpful, articulate, knowledgeable, organized, ... and above all a great tour guide. I highly recommend her! The bus was clean and luxurious and the driver was skilled and accomplished ... I highly recommend Gate 1's Sicily Tour and especially our tour guide Flavia.

Our trip was great. It was just as described in the online information. The hotel and the daily trips were wonderful. Our tour leader Lynn did a fantastic job .... She was dedicated to making sure that everything went as planned .... Our driver Victor did a magnificent job of maneuvering the bus through the narrow streets ..... The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Thanks to Gate 1 Travel.

Our trip was amazing. My friend has traveled with Gate 1 several times and recommended highly and I will do as well. Our tour guide Francesca Bensi was outstanding.

Hilda I. Tamarac, FL
12 Day Enchanting Italy with Amalfi, July 2018
This trip was a dream come true. It was more than perfect. I loved Italy, our tour director Carmine Aliperti was the best tour director we could ask for. He went above and beyond to make us feel safe (dealing with food allergies) at every stop... This trip exceeded our expectations. The hotels were great, the food, the places... there are no words to describe our experience. To top it all up, our group of people was excellent!

8 Day Enchanting Italy, July 2018
My trip was wonderful! It was so well done! Every detail was taken care of beautifully. The hotels were splendid, very well located and in wonderful condition and very clean. The tours were well planned and went off flawlessly. Michela was excellent! She went above and beyond every step of the way. When I was investigating travel companies I never heard a bad thing about Gate 1 Travel. I can honestly say everyone was right!
Shirlee A. Havertown, PA
12 Day Enchanting Italy with Amalfi, June 2018
Our trip was fantastic. We are so happy with the Gate 1 tour and tour guide. It was all wonderful. Better than we could have imagined. No complaints. Very impressed with the hotels, the meals, the itinerary, the local guides and all the hard work our Gate 1 tour guide put in. His name was Simone'. He arranged so many nice little surprises for us that were above and beyond what was expected. He was a jewel and everyone loved him. The tour eliminated so many hassles for us. We didn't have to wait in lines. All the transportation and tours were on time and we were never left feeling neglected. We can't wait to go on another tour with Gate 1.
Beth, W. Alleman, IA
9 Day Tastes of Tuscany, May 2018
Our trip to Montecatini was exceptional much due to our wonderful guide Carolyn and the spectacular Tuscany area. Carolyn was energetic, charming, knowledgeable and you could tell she loved giving the tour every single day. She always had some little extra information which personalized the tour for all. It was also a great group, many repeat Gate1 travelers and some first timers.
Francisco R. Lincoln, NH
9 Day Enchanting Italy: Rome, Florence & Venice, May 2018
Excellent! It was so nice to have everything taken care of for us. Transitions from airport to hotel and back again were smooth as silk! I want to make a special mention of our tour guide for the week, Luca de Leon since he made this trip! Organized, but flexible; Fun yet responsible… He was amazing!
Sandra C. Ontario, CA
10 Day Northern Italy with Venice & Tuscany , May 2018
We had a wonderful trip. I would like to compliment our guide... She also bought “treats” for us at several locations, ending with a notepad from Florence. She made the trip special. We have been on several tours with other companies, and Gate1 certainly met our expectations. The included dinner at the vineyard was beyond what any other company included in the package.
Jane J. Rye, NY
13 Day Romantic Italy, May 2018
Our trip was awesome. Our first experience with Gate 1 was such a wonderful one that we’re looking into another trip next year.
Fabio did a great job. All the guides were very knowledgeable and very attentive. Loved all the hotels and the food. Nothing negative about the entire trip.
Maria F. Northampton, PA
14 Day Romantic Italy with Amalfi , May 2018
Our trip was amazing. The itinerary was perfect and our tour director was wonderful. Martin is very knowledgeable, engaging, personable and so very organized. The accommodations were comfortable and ideally located to maximize our ability to explore independently. The local guides were also knowledgeable and passionate about their respective cities. It was an excellent experience. We’re looking forward to our next trip with Gate 1.
Eric W. Piscataway, NJ
10 Day Northern Italy with Venice & Tuscany, May 2018
Dorsey, The trip was as fabulous or maybe even MORE fabulous than the first trip to Italy that I took with Gate1 in 2014, if that’s even possible. Vanni was an outstanding guide. One of the highlights of the trip was running into my former tour guide, Mercedes, in St. Mark’s Square in Venice.
I traveled alone knowing that I’d be in good hands with Gate1. You certainly went above and beyond to see to my comfort when sending a driver to and from my entry and exit airports, and the group of people I traveled with were hilariously fun!
I will definitely choose Gate 1 for all my travel adventures.
Jan B. Truckee, CA
9 Day Tastes of Tuscany, May 2018

Margaret and I had a truly wonderful time. Totally satisfied. Made new friends and enjoyed our trip very much, an experience of a lifetime. Myranne, our main guide, was fabulous and the tour guides at each site were very well informed and made the trip worth while. Hotels, locations and food were great. We were lucky to have perfect weather, late April seemed to be a great time to go. Have told others to use Gate 1.
Tom T. Geneseo, NY
11 Day Enchanting Italy, April 2018
My wife and I can not think of one thing Gate 1 could have done better . We never expected to see so much. Our days were just filled with new wonderful sights.
Our tour guide Myrian was the best. She was so organized ,funny and knowledgeable I can't say enough about her so thank you Gate 1 for a trip we will never forget.
Michael K. Old Forge, PA
9 Day Classic Sicily, April 2018
It was a fantastic trip. We enjoyed the Sicily visit very much. Trip was made special with our tour guide Flavia Condorelli. She made sure we were out on time to allow our bus to be the first tour at all the sites, very knowledgeable on the history of Sicily. Also need to add that the accommodations and lunches/dinners provided were outstanding. The Sicilian food was one of my highlights of the trip.
Herb F. Benicia, CA
9 Day Enchanting Italy: Venice, Florence & Rome, April 2018

Hsiu-chin W. Lawrenceville, NJ
Cinque Terre, Parma, Bologna & Lakes, April 2018
We had a WONDERFUL trip...We were very pleased with the chance to sample local cuisine and wine. We enjoyed the smaller villages and feeling more immersed in the Italian culture. The weather was perfect, seeing the Alps every day was a real treat. Riccardo's choices of where to eat, to sample wines of the region, or try a local food specialty, was very much appreciated. We will continue to explore Gate 1 small group experiences if it continues to follow this model.
Glen B. Eugene, OR
8 Day Essential Italy, April 2018

Ann B. Milton, NH
16 Day Tuscany & Amalfi with Como, Venice & Rome, April 2018
We had a great trip & a fabulous time on our 16-day tour of Italy with Gate 1 Travel. It exceeded our expectations! Our tour manager, Fabio Rapisardi,
was professional, friendly, caring & concerned that everyone was pleased & enjoying their experience. He was the straw that stirred
the drink on this tour and has set a high bar for the tour managers on future trips we will be taking with Gate 1 Travel. We thought we got a very good value
for what we paid but Fabio with his personal touch, management skills, recommendations for our free time and again his care & concern that everyone
was pleased & enjoying the trip made it, by far, the best group tour vacation we ever experienced!
Based on the quality of the airline, hotels, meals, local tours, bus transport, transfers, plus other services provided & of course Fabio's management of the trip/tour we feel we can recommend Gate 1 Travel to our family and friends without any reservations. Thank you for a wonderful trip & great memories!
Rich A. Dallastown, PA
11 Day Affordable Italy with Sorrento, March 2018
We had a wonderful trip. Our guide, Vanni Morelli, was fantastic. He is funny and knowledgeable and caring. We could not have asked for better. This was so much better than our cruise trip a few years ago
Carole M. Neptune Beach, FL
8 Day Enchanting Italy, March 2018
We had a wonderful time, so informative, great tour guide Francesco, so much beauty to behold, from the water taxi to the hotel, the gondola, the tiramisu, the lasagna, the winery tour, shopping in Florence, the architecture,Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and the wonderful works of Michelangelo! Well organized, and we had a great fun loving time with our fellow Gate 1 travelers. Thank you for a great experience and fond memories!
Charise S. Raleigh, NC
9 Day Affordable Sicily, March 2018
Good trip. Flavia was great. All the hotels but one (seaside resort) were located in areas where there was easy walking to other restaurants, shops, etc. Accommodations were all reasonable. Local guides were good.
Lisa S. Alexandria, VA
11 Day Affordable Italy with Sorrento, March 2018
It was wonderful! Can’t say enough wonderful things about Ana our tour manager. She took good care of us and saw to it that we got a look at Italian culture. The trip was simply excellent and I would recommend Gate 1 to all my friends.
Rita H. Indianapolis, IN
10 Day Affordable Italy with Pompeii, March 2018
GREAT TRIP!! Wonderful adventure but a lot of walking. The local tour people were very knowledgeable and interested in the group learning about Italy’s treasures. The local director in Rome, Marissa, was especially attentive and related so many interesting tidbits and anecdotes. The Gate1 people were also great and caring – especially Heidi - who phoned us two days in advance to warn us of the impending snow in New York (where we were to connect to the Italy flight) in order to re-route us so we could get to Venice on time. Thanks! This was our third Gate1 trip and we have scheduled our fourth for June of this year.
Lawrence S. Surprise, AZ
9 Day Rome, Florence & Venice by Rail, March 2018
Thank you for the email. The trip was outstanding!!! I could not have had asked for a better weather, time, and everything in between.
Adolfo N. Washington, DC
9 Day Four Star Venice, Florence & Rome by Rail , March 2018
OMG!!!! Trip to Italy was so awesome words cannot describe. Gate 1 delivered everything you said you would. The emails contained all our information from departure to return. The hotels in Venice, Florence and Rome were outstanding. Now the tour guides... what can I say besides OUTSTANDING!!!! I wish i could have videoed each tour. The information they gave us, was beyond anything you can read in a book. Their home country touches, stories and memories made the whole tour even more special. Our group of nine family members were treated so great.! Our Mom who turned 80 in Dec. was treated as if she was their Mom!! Extra concern for her safety, to making her feel as special as she is, too finding elevators where they could!! Our family will use Gate1 again, hopefully soon!!!!
Sharon B. Amery, WI
9 Day Affordable Sicily, March 2018
Our trip was great! Two thumbs up for our tour guide, Flavia, and our
driver Raymundo. It was just the right mix of time on our own and group
activities. I was somewhat apprehensive about taking a coach tour...
The "comfort" stops along our route were timed just right...We liked that we weren't changing hotels every night...The food was great. And the
coffee! And the wine! I just wish I would have picked up a recipe book so
that I could try to reproduce some of our favorite dishes back home.
Mary B. Caledonia, MI
6 Day Rome Special, February 2018
We had fun. Weather was rough as we left in the snow storm but Rome was great. Mercedes the tour guide was wonderful and a trooper through the weather. We saw what we came to see and more!!! We hope to book again with you all. The hotel staff was fabulous. Donatello was a good hotel.
Quentin P. Brooklyn, NY
8 Day Affordable Italy, February 2018
I enjoyed the trip to Italy in its entirety. Letizia, the tour manager must be commended for her organizational skills and her humanity. Marco, the driver for the group, was a true professional. At each tour stop, there were guides who were truly knowledgeable about each site. I'm already looking at Gate1 for a trip to Spain and Portugal.
Sara-Ann F. Brooklyn, NY
6 Day Milan Special, February 2018
It was fun. We did some touristy things and then we wandered into some normal Milanese areas and just enjoyed the daily life. The hotel was good and the airline was nicer than others. We had a toddler in tow so we always appreciate anything to accommodate her (special bed for her, extras on the airplane.)
Tarril R. White Plains, NY
11 Day Affordable Italy with Naples, February 2018
Our trip was wonderful! Our tour manager, Martin, was the absolute Best! The tours, hotels and all activities exceeded our expectations, not to mention the extraordinary food in Italy, really wonderful. We plan to keep in touch with some of our tour companions, and we plan to travel with Gate 1 again and again. We have favored cruises in the past, but this land tour has converted our thinking. Thanks Gate 1, see you soon!
Janice D. Bakersfield, CA
9 Day Rome, Florence & Venice by Rail, February 2018
Accomodations in all three cities were very satisfactory. Moreover the tour guides were exceptional, particularly our local guide in Venice. We were happy with the logistics (transportation and proximity of the hotels to the rail stations). We will definitely use Gate 1 again.
Paul M. Whittier, CA

Sophia S. Bayside, NY
8 Day Enchanting Italy, November 2017
Our trip was wonderful. Our Italian guide, Myriam Ghedin, was the best! She knows and loves her country, particularly beautiful Venice, and she gave us so much more than directions. She is personable, knowledgeable, warm, and friendly. The local guides that she arranged were so informative and patient. We came together as a group early on, and our farewells were bittersweet. We may have said Arrivederci to Rome and Italy, but our hearts remain with this tour and dear Myriam.

Susan Rose G. Farmingdale, NJ
16 Day Tuscany & Amalfi with Como, Venice & Rome, September 2017
We have traveled using several tour companies and ... were very impressed with Gate 1. We will use Gate 1 again. Particularly noteworthy was our guide in Italy, Vivianne. She is probably the best guide we have seen in our travels. Very professional in handling situations and entertaining as well as informative.
