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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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!

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!).

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.

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!

We had the trip of a lifetime. Our guide Edgart couldn’t have been better. He was so knowledgeable and we could tell that he really wanted us to have a wonderful experience. We would highly recommend this trip to anyone. From the accommodations, local guides, Alverto, drivers, food and especially Edgart, our trip was just perfect. I recommend Gate 1 to all my friends and relatives. I really don’t think you could beat them. We look forward to future adventures with Gate 1. Once again, we want to thank Edgart for making our trip to Machu Picchu one that will always be one of our favorite trips.

We had an amazing time, thank you. I thought the tour guide Washington and his assistant guide Yutber were superb both in terms of knowledge as well as spicing up the trip for us and making it fun for the entire group. Loved the country, our group, and the whole experience. Everything went very smoothly for us and we would do it again.

Our trip to Peru was wonderful! Marcos, our guide, was exceptional. He was full of knowledge, very entertaining and had a very comfortable, easy personality. Our group was also a great friendly mix of people. The accommodations and meals were great as well. We will definitely be using Gate 1 Travel in the future!
