Don't take a tour with Gate 1 to Egypt! Our family went with them and had the worst accommodations (lodging and food). Plus a tour guide and his friends who scammed us out of $100 in spices + scammed us at a restaurant (charged us money for food that was supposed to be included on the tour and wouldn't let us leave until we did).

I am concerned about the coronavirus for this trip...mostly about being quarantined on the return flight to Miami from Milan..do I have any options to fly out out of another city? Or would it be possible for me to reschedule this trip or even swap it for the new England fall foliage trip?? 706 881 3885

Gate1travel - They have cancel for any reason for $169.00 but don't share that

We booked a trip to Europe and I purchased insurance. As I go to cancel they have a full refund if you notify them 60 days or more before. I notified them 63 days before. WHY are they keeping $2,800 They are crooks and don't trust them. The women who took my call said I needed to do it in writing and I did it twice in writing but they don't acknowledge it. So disappointedd. I will be using Perillo tours from now on.

Hello, I am not sure that you booked your tickets through our company. We are Gate 1 Travel, a U.S.based tour operator. It seems you may have booked through Gate 1 which is a European consolidator whom we have no association with.

Gate1travel - Incompetent regarding flight scheduling

Gate 1 is incompetent in flight scheduling. Orientation w tour manager for Japan will be @ 7pm but flight will arrive @ 11pm. We paid Gate 1 to do their basic job; Schedule flight time coordinates w tour orientation & not arrival in a forgien country @ night w no pick which we prepaid for the pickup.Gate 1 doesn't seem to rectify their mistake. Gate 1 keeps stalling stating they r working on it. It takes more than 2 wks to change a flight schedule. Avoid Gate 1 fr now on.

Hello, We are sorry if you feel there is any lapse in service. However, we did contact the hotel multiple times on your behalf.

As previously explained, they refute that anyone left the hotel due to the heat or that there were issues with the air conditioning. As such, they have charged in full per the terms of your reservation.
