11 Day New Orleans with 7 Day Western Caribbean Cruise, February 2017
It was AWESOME! The Hotel Provincial was spectacular - and we really enjoyed the NCL cruise (we have cruised many times, but this was the first time on NCL). Everything that Gate 1 arranged, including the transport to the ship and the walking tour of New Orleans French Quarter, worked out perfectly...
Thanks again. You guys have done right by us four times now... and we're planning another big vacation through you/Discovery Tours!

16 Day Italy with 7 Day Western Med Cruise , September 2016
Our honeymoon trip to Italy was amazing! A dream come true! We cannot say enough about our tour guide Simone. He knew so much and always had us smiling and ready for our next day of travel; letting us know the weather, the type of shoes to wear and all the little important details. We had just enough time for touring and down time to do our own thing. We're already looking into booking another Gate 1 tour!
Thank you so much! It was worth every penny and we cannot wait to travel with your company again!!

Fantastic! The bus tour was an A+! The cruise ship was too large and loaded with kids, but excellent food! Our independent tours that Patti booked were great! We also got off at Marsallas and Naples! Great trip

11 Day Rome with 7 Day Western Med Cruise , June 2016
It was one of the best vacation we had in our life......and that was not an exaggeration. Also, want to thank you for making this vacation memorable for me and my husband. All the stress for the vacation pre-planning is well worth it.

13 Day Classic Alaska with 7 Day Cruise, June 2016
Once again, Gate 1 did an excellent job of their portion of the trip to Alaska. Excellent Guide, hotels, travel arrangements, etc. Along with the beauty of Alaska and the wildlife, one of the most enjoyable portions of you trip was getting to know the other Gate 1 travelers. We have now used Gate 1 on 3 or 4 trips and find that the fellow Gate 1 travelers are well seasoned travelers. I especially like this since I have now hit all 50 states and over 90 countries through travels over many, many years. We love comparing their travels with places we have visited. Most had previous Gate 1 travels to some of the same locations we have been to also with Gate 1.
Great trip and thanks for you help in setting it up.

13 Day New Orleans & Cajun Country with 7 Day Western Caribbean Cruise, March 2015
We really liked our tour guide Karen and the bus driver Jimmie. We were fortunate to have a small group and that made it really nice. Gate 1 did a good job with where we went, what we saw and how long we stayed. All the accommodations were good and having the cruise at the end was perfect. Not impressed with the NCL ship we were on, but it was still a wonderful trip. Thanks for all your help.

13 Day Classic Alaska with 7 Day Cruise, May 2014
Our trip was fabulous, the entire family found Alaska to be very interesting.
Mt. McKinley was covered in clouds except for a tiny bit on one side, which I
understand is the norm. Saw moose, grizzlies, humpbacks, orca (very unusual),
seals and sea lions, etc. Amazing mountains and glaciers. Food was delicious
even for us vegetarians.
Some of our side trips on the cruise portion of
the trip included sea kayaking and canoeing up to a glacier that we actually got
to walk on. We got some amazing photos that look like they were taken with a
Cruising is a great way to see Alaska along with the rail
portion. Some cities don't even have a road in or out of town. They rely on
boats and planes. I highly recommend this trip.

11 Day New Orleans with 7 Day Western Caribbean Cruise, March 2014
Our trip to New Orleans and the Royal Caribbean cruise to the Western
Caribbean were great. No complaints! No problems! The hotel in New Orleans
(Hotel Provincial) was a great location and Gate 1's inclusion of a half-day
tour there was much appreciated.
We will definitely be cruising with
RCCL again, I find it very convenient to have Gate 1 handle all the details,
rather than having to deal separately with airlines, hotels, transfers,
insurance, cruise lines, etc.

14 Day Art of Spain with 7 Day Western Med Cruise, September 2013
I had a wonderful time. We only had 24 people on the tour and they were a
nice bunch. It was nice not having to deal with a larger group. There were also
some younger people which made it fun. I really enjoyed the cruise and would not
hesitate to use the cruise line again

16 Day Italy with 7 Day Western Med Cruise, June 2013
The trip was fabulous. From the time we landed in
Venice, until we departed from the cruise ship, everything went according to the
itinerary. The sightseeing venues were spectacular and the side trips to a
Tuscan Farm for wine tasting and dining at an authentic Tuscan Restaurant, were
memorable. What made the trip so enjoyable and special was our Tour Manager,
Vanni. He was organized, timely and extremely knowledgeable of the places we
visited. Vanni went beyond the call of duty to make sure a valuable necklace I
lost in the Vatican was returned to me before my departure. We met some
wonderful people during the tour, but none quite as nice as
I will be sure to spread the word about how awesome the
trip was to my family and friends. Gate 1 is the #1 Travel Tour Company in my

17 Day Barcelona with 12 Day Mediterranean Cruise, June 2013
Our trip was amazing, thanks
to the efficiency of Gate 1. From the hotel booking to the excursions and
Norwegian cruise booking, all were undertaken in a professional manner.
Barcelona was one of our favorite cities and the hotel was so conveniently
situated as well. The tour company chosen was
excellent and as for the cruise, just sheer luxury. We will definitely use Gate

16 Day Italy with 7 Day Western Med Cruise, June 2013
We really enjoyed our trip. We were greeted at
the airport in Venice by Francesca, our guide for the land portion. Everyone on
tour found her to be extremely friendly and capable. She was always well
received by the local guides excursions we stopped at as well. This made for
some entertaining and educational stops. We took the R/C Cruise in the Western
Mediterranean. The cruise was great and very relaxing after a fast paced land
tour with Francesca.
We were very pleased with our tour. I believe we
will be looking into other tours Gate 1 offers next year.

17 Day Italy with 7 Day Eastern Med Cruise, August 2011
This was our third trip with Gate 1. We have been
extremely pleased with all the trips. The local guides as well as the tour
directors have been excellent, friendly and very well educated in their
specific areas. We took two couples (family members) with us this last trip.
They were as pleased as we have been. Thank you for excellent experiences. We
have 2 more trips planned with Gate 1 in the fall of 2011 and spring of

10 Day Seattle with 7 Day Alaska Cruise, July 2011
My trip was awesome!! The pictures I took will never be able to
tell the story of what I experienced. Everyone thought I was crazy or
brave traveling alone. They all adopted me and wanted me to hang out with
them. I had a wonderful time touring Seattle and Alaska. The cruise ship was
amazing and the staff addressed me by name daily. I would totally do it again.
I'm already planning my trip for next year.

How does one rave about the best
trip ever? You guys are great. All of the guides and appointments were done on
time and with professionalism. I'd especially like to thank you
for the best tour guide in Italy, Mickey. She made the difference between a
good trip and a great one. I cant wait to book another tour with you
people. Other people on the tour raved about Gate 1 as well. You
guys do a great job.
