12 Day Kaleidoscope of Peru, June 2018
It was amazing right from the start ... Our Tour Leader Rene, was terrific, very knowledgeable and plenty of expertise with the whole group. The guide in training, Yutber, was also exceptional and will go a long way with your company The driver Ernesto, and all the local guides were exceptional, and yes I remember most of their names starting with Richard, David, Jamie and Mauricio. Each had abundance of knowledge for their particular areas.
We had a wonderful time with the major highlights being Machu Picchu and of course the floating islands at lake Titicaca ... This was our first time with Gate 1 Travel ... I am certain that we will be travelling with you again.

We had a fantastic holiday. Being first time users of Gate 1 we are super impressed with the service and tours. Mauricio Gomez was outstanding. Having travelled previously with Scenic tours, Gate 1 is incredibly good value and the service provided is excellent. We are looking at signing up for the Vietnam tour next year. Regards and thanks for all your assistance in organising the trip, flights, etched. Great job

It was fantastic! I couldn't have been more pleased with our tour manager, accommodations, food, etc. Our entire group was thrilled with our trip and we are making arrangements to travel to Ireland next September. I have already made our reservations and am contacting others in our group so they can make travel arrangements. We couldn't have done it without Gate 1. I would like to commend Rene, our tour manager, and Ernesto, our driver for the excellent service they provided to us. They were so accommodating to our group and had everything well organized. They are definitely an asset to your company and I would highly recommend them. Job well done!
Looking forward to our next trip.

12 Day Kaleidoscope of Peru, August 2019
Our trip to Peru with Gate 1 was one of the best tours we’ve taken. All the hotels were four star rated. The sights (Machu Picchu, Eros, and Colca Canyon) were fabulous, the food wonderful, and the people very welcoming to tourists. Our tour manager Abel ranks as the best we’ve every had with Gate 1. Abel was friendly, very knowledgeable, approachable and above all a “fixer” when it came to minor issues that occur during any tour. We can’t wait for our next tours to Egypt, Vietnam, and Morocco.

Can't find any tour manager better than Henry ! He made our trip so very enjoyable, no stress !

The trip was a outstanding! As always, lots of moving around but worth every moment of it. Pavel keeps things smooth, entertaining, and educational. He is truly committed to Gate 1 and creating amazing travel experiences for his guests.
The group blended so well, that it made it difficult to leave. My Peru travel family will always be remembered.

We had the time of our lives! It was the best trip we have ever been on! The food was amazing and Abel our tour manager made the trip into a magical experience! He was very knowledgeable, kind, very aware of our needs and made our group feel as if we were a family. He made the trip the special experience it was. Richard the helper was also excellent, always helping us down steps, always asking what we needed. He, Abel, and Julio the bus driver made a great team! This is our first trip with Gate 1 we will definitely be back! It was an amazing trip and please let Abel know that he brought the beauty of the Inca people into a magical reality with his wealth of knowledge ! Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip!

10 Day Affordable Peru, April 2019
It was definitely the trip of a lifetime! My partner, Mark, and I have been dreaming of crossing Peru off our bucket lists for some time now and it was as amazing as we could have hoped for. The energy of our entire vacation felt magical, from visiting the bustling city of Lima to the rural highlands and everything in between. Our tour guide Pavel was so passionate and informative, shucks even the other couples we met in our group quickly felt like close friends. Gate 1 had all of our needs taken care of, transportation/hotels/dining accommodations went smoothly so we could focus on experiencing this together worry free. We couldn't be more delighted.

It was lovely! Rogger and Pepe were wonderful, handling anything that came up and making sure we were all well looked after. Jose, our Lima guide, was excellent and Victor, our driver, navigated those mountain roads so well. A beautiful country with a rich history and culture. Machu Picchu was amazing!

Our trip to Peru and Machu Picchu was fantastic! My daughter and I enjoyed ourselves immensely .... Our tour guide was always looking out for our safety. We stayed at very comfortable and clean hotel, ate at restaurants with delicious local cuisine, and our helper and bus driver were the best ... We also had the good fortune to travel with a wonderful group of people. The whole experience was so much more than we expected. Thank you for a trip that will stay in our memories forever!

This trip was very interesting, many historical sites to see. It was very well organized, without needing to worry about anything. And our tour manager, Alejandro, was amazing - patient, caring, funny; would not be the same without him. It was my first trip with Gate 1 and I truly enjoyed it.
Irina C. Santa Clara, CA
9 Day Peru Inca Special, October 2018
I want to take this opportunity to tell how much I enjoyed my recent trip to Peru. I can't imagine what could have been done to improve my experience.
First of all, I must commend our tour guide, Ronald, who bent over backward to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. His concern and compassion are beyond reproach. He was easily accessible at all times if there were questions or issues.
A native of Cuzco, he certainly knew his stuff, and his knowledge of the history of the various regions was complete. He made the complications of the itinerary (transfers, etc.) so simple. The optional excursions were great, and Ronald seemed as excited as we were to visit these places. He's also simply one helluva nice guy. His job is not an easy one, but nothing clouded his focus to offer us the best experience ever.
This was my first Gate 1 trip, and I've already booked a 12-day tour of Germany for May, 2019. I also very much appreciate that Gate 1 offers a reasonable single supplement, so helpful to those of us who must travel alone.
Thanks for a memorable experience. I'm spreading the word about Gate 1.

I wanted to share that my trip to Peru was my first trip with Gate 1 Travel. I wanted to share that my experience was nothing but wonderful ... Ruben Aragon demonstrated such passion, patience and a love for Peru that it made my trip that much more amazing. We were able to see a lot of what Peru had to offer, talk to and interact with the local people of Peru. I felt safe, heard and really taken care of throughout the trip. Great job Gate 1! I will definitely be booking through Gate 1 again. Thank you

10 Day Affordable Peru - Plan B Hotels, July 2018
This was my 8th Gate 1 trip and probably one of the best ... It is the first trip that I feel that I was really immersed in the culture of the country. Juan, our tour manager was one of the best. He was kind, helpful, intelligent, funny and energetic ... The bus drivers and local guides were some of the kindest I have encountered. I can’t say enough about Peru, the Gate 1 employees and Gate 1 in general. Oh and I must not forget the people who picked me up and dropped me off at the airport. What gentlemen. They were also so helpful. Thank you so much Gate 1
Patrizia P. Valley Village, CA

The trip was outstanding. It was well organized, and the service provided by the Gate 1 staff was exceptional. I also would like to send our special thanks to the tour manager (Marcos Farfan) and his assistant (Paul). Both made the experience of entire trip so pleasant, inclusive, and enjoyable. This is the first time we joined the Gate 1 tour and certainly will not be our last. Thank you! Job well done!
Brian K. Conroe, TX
10 Day Affordable Peru, June 2018
We loved this trip to Peru! My wife and I were accompanied by our two adult daughters. All four of us had a marvelous experience. Our tour guide Mr. Rolly Carasco was outstanding. He is passionate about explaining Inca history, customs, religious beliefs, and the role of the Spanish Conquistadors' devastating impact on the original people of the region ... Machu Picchu was more thrilling than I expected it to be. The other highlights: Cuzco, the floating Uros Islands, the visit to the school classroom, the Central market vegetable stands, and so much more. We would all enthusiastically recommend this trip ... We are already discussing and planning for our next Gate1 excursion.
George, G. Arnold, MD
10 Day Affordable Peru - Plan A Hotels, June 2018
Our trip to Peru was outstanding. I fell in love with Machu Picchu, Peru in general with it's beautiful scenery, and the people. Our tour director, Marcos Farfan, was wonderful! His ability to speak Quecha allowed us several very special opportunites, where we were able to visit the indigenous people in their work and home environment. One special memory was stopping by a family, out in their fields attending to their crops ... Marcos's ability to communicate with the family allowed us to see a real family in their natural environment. I am 74 and Marcos's helper, Alexis, helped me get to the top of the mountain so I could see the view of Machu Picchu, I had dreamed about all my life ... Every part of our trip was wonderful both for me and for my 23 year old granddaughter. It was a trip that transcended our ages and held wonder for both of us ... Thank you, Gate 1 for another successful trip!
Mary Beth S. Annapolis, MD
Machu Picchu Express , May 2018
Fantastic. Our guide was great, providing a terrific amount of historical and cultural information. He kept us on time, and was very patient with some of the more challenging members of the group. His assistant Algusto (sp?) was very supportive, friendly and provided additional information of great interest.
Highly recommend this tour, and the guides provided.

My trip to Peru was great. I really enjoyed it. Pavel our tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable ... Also, great was the bus driver and Pavel's assistant, Fredy ... Overall, I came back very glad that I took the tour. I have traveled with Gate 1 before and must say that I am glad I did. I'll be on the look out for other tour offers and I wish that Gate 1 gave a little discount for previous travels.

It couldn't be any better. Had a fantastic time!
Peru is beautiful and fascinating, and our tour guide, Rolly Carrasco made the trip super.
Everything was well organized, drivers were great and the hotels were nice and comfortable and well located in the city.
I could highly recommend this tour and your company to anyone, who is planning to go to Peru.
Sylvia H. Northridge, CA
11 Day Affordable Peru & Bolivia, April 2018
The trip was wonderful! Mauricio lived up to the Gate 1 standard for tour managers. His knowledge, wit, patience, and concern for our safety and comfort were exceptional. Hotels were first class and staffs obviously deferred to Gate 1 travelers. Furnished meals were excellent, as were Mauricio's recommendations for meals on our own. The small size and diversity of this group made the experience even more rewarding. I would emphasize...All in all, definitely more of the world for less, and a great value.
Jerry G. Montgomery, AL
7 Day Peru & Machu Picchu, April 2018
The trip was excellent, the tour manager, Allihandro, is very pleasant and experienced, it's well organized and we don't feel rushed, love it and will definitely travel with Gate 1 again in the future.
Daisy C. Markham, ON, CA
10 Day Affordable Peru - Plan B Hotels, April 2018
Our trip was excellent. This was our first Gate 1 trip and we were highly
impressed. The trip was well coordinated and seemed to flow seamlessly. Our
guide, Roger Salas, was first rate ... the best guide we've ever
experienced. He made everyone feel welcome and special, was extremely
knowledgeable, and took care of us like a mother hen. We're also impressed
that Gate 1 supports some institutions in Peru such as schools, and, of
course, local families who provided a local meal.
Five stars to you. We'll surely sign up for other Gate 1 trips
Kurth F. Longwood, FL
Peruvian Legends, April 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip to Peru. It was packed with fun, challenging activities & I will be recommending Gate 1 to other people (in fact, I already have).
The trip was even more enjoyable due to the expertise of the tour manager, Arturo Espinoza. He was very knowledgable and professional. Arturo was very personable and charming, he was extremely helpful to everyone. He managed to keep the group together & he guided us through every itinerary smoothly. Arturo is a definite asset to the Gate 1 company and our group was lucky to have benefited from his guidance.
I'm looking forward to another Discovery Tour in the near future.
Susan L. Midvale, UT
Peruvian Legends, April 2018
We recently had an excellent experience on the Peruvian Legends trip, our second Gate 1 trip. The group of 12 travelers blended well together for a congenial two weeks. Our tour director, Arturo Espinoza, was excellent. He had a vast fund of knowledge about Peru, especially the Cusco and Machu Pichu regions. He was highly organized yet pleasant and helped the group dynamics. He was quick to take initiative on local issues and made us feel very comfortable in his country, Peru. A great trip overall and we will return to Gate ! in the future!

It was one of our most amazing trips. Very well organized. Machu Picchu was the highlight of course & we also enjoyed the Lake Titicaca floating Islands & the whole experience with the people there. Our tour guide Ronald was the best. Very knowledgable on everything & went out of his way to please. Excellent!!!
Marion B. London, ON, CA
Machu Picchu Express (Miami Special), February 2018
The Machu Picchu Express Trip was fabulous. I was worried that such a short trip wouldn’t include much but it fit into my time schedule. The trip was much more than I expected. Victor was an amazing tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about Peru, it’s history, architecture, and people. He related well to all members of our tour group. I would highly recommend this trip to others. Thanks for checking in with me.

Ron K. Melbourne, FL
7 Day Peru & Machu Picchu, November 2017
My trip was AMAZING!!!! I have lived and worked overseas for 20+ years, so I travel a lot. I have never used an organized tour company before, I always make my own arrangements and do my own thing, but the logistics of planning a trip to Machu Picchu and limited availability of tickets pushed me to try a tour for this trip. OMG, it was the best experience! The staff (guide Marcos Farfan, his assistant Aldo, and driver Wilbert) was fantastic, the logistics were flawless, the group was diverse/interesting/fun, and the value for money was exceptional. My opinion of organized tours has completely changed, and I will definitely be looking to Gate 1 in the future for another trip (quite possibly with some of my new friends from this one!).
Larilyn R. Moline, IL
Machu Picchu Express , October 2017

Our trip was wonderful. Our guide Edgar was the best, so knowledgeable and made everything run so smoothly along with the local guides and bus drivers. There was not one thing my husband and I did not like. We are so happy to have taken this trip since it was on the top of our bucket list. We are so impressed with Gate 1 and will let our friends know. This was our second tour with you, our first was China which was also excellent. Now we are planning our next trip in spring to Italy. Thank you Gate 1 for sponsoring the school we visited. It brought tears to our eyes and were welcomed with open arms. This was my husbands highlight of the trip.
Barbara S. Georgetown, TX
10 Day Affordable Peru - Plan B Hotels, August 2017
It was amazing! Our tour guide, Gary, could not have been better. He really went the extra mile for each of us through the whole trip, but particularly when we all faced a stressful situation with hurricane Irma. Gary made sure we each had flights and a plan to get us home safely. He went above and beyond on this. Aside from that, he was just the perfect tour guide - so proud to show us his country. The entire trip was fantastic- the best tour we've ever been on, and we've traveled with several companies. Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience exploring Peru!
