Today we discuss a little about Gate1Travel , a travel agency from the USA. Discovery tours offer you a chance to immerse yourself in culture with a smaller group size of up to 22 people. This means you get to know your group well and you are able to do more things together that cannot be done in a large group. Get ready to see hidden gems only the locals know about and linger at places your group enjoyed longer. These tours also offer more opportunity for activities and interactions with the local communities. Small group size also allows for unique and boutique accommodations, adding to the immersive nature of these experiences. Discovery tours feature a quickly expanding mix of destinations, from primary locations such as Italy and Peru to the more exotic locales which include Mongolia, Sri Lanka and Borneo, just to name a few.

Random customer reviews : My wife and myself took a tour with Gate 1 to Morocco in February, which I must say was very nicely organized. Where I have had an unpleasant experience with Gate 1 is in the booking of my flights thru Gate 1, and their refusal to address my issue. In booking our flights we requested Premium Economy on all flights to and from Atlanta / Morocco. We paid a surcharge of $599.00 each. The only flight we were accommodated in Premium Economy was Atalanta / Morocco. Connecting flight from Paris to Morocco was economy class with some of our fellow tour group who never paid any surcharge. Read more details on Gate1travel reviews.
Some negative reviews : Just returned from South Africa June 3rd. Our tour guide told us on the first day if we were late he would leave us. Every time we got off the bus he said no shopping and only gave us time to go to the bathroom. Every time we arrived to sit in the hotel for 3 hours until dinner. He kept telling us on the last day he would take us to a warehouse full of souvenirs. I asked the first day about wanting to purchase gold bangle bracelets. He assured me this place had plenty of jewelry. When the last came and we arrived at the so called warehouse it was 3 rooms. One jewelry store that did not carry bangle bracelets. When he asked the jeweler he said we ordered those for your last client and sent them back.
Some positive reviews : It was wonderful. We have taken 7 trips with Gate 1 and this was a favorite, right up there with Greece, Ecuador and Galapagos cruise. Our guide was Henry Melgarejo who did an excellent job. His love and knowledge of his country were evident. Hotels were very good and price for entire trip with flights was economical. We changed flight from Miami to DC and Gate 1 charged identical price with no increase for changing departure site. Very nice! Henry was the best guide we’ve ever had. Group was a good size of 26. Henry escorted us through Machu Picchu and even rode the train with us. We felt entirely safe the entire trip and we learned so much about the Incas. Henry is an historian and college professor who studied in USA and Peru. Gate 1 executed our trip with precision and care. Buses were new and drivers were excellent.
