In this post 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 : Travelled to the former Yugoslavia for an abortion of a trip. People traveling were a mixture of stupid, rude or crude. Personal effects of minimal value vanished during brief trips on the bus. The local restaurants were a mixture of poor food or improper hygiene. There was a minimum of friction admittedly because certain alpha males or females…scroungy looking people…..kept cutting the lines. And everyone was too embarrassed to say anything.Do the right thing and check out non cutthroat tours…pay for the service and avoid people who belong more in a police lockup than a tour bus. also, the political situation there was horrendous: we had to go through more stupid checkpoints…some twice….than it was worth.I want you to know that I never give negative workups so this is fervent.

Some negative reviews : Had the terrible experience with Gate 1 Travel. The worst travel company of my lifetime led by Dani Mosher Pipany as a president , Beth Feleger as supervisor .. others… They do not care about people. The king in this company is money. I should read this review before any booking with Gate 1 Travel. Unfortunately , I was too much relying on the human decency. “Beware of using Gate 1 Travel. First, you are required to put down a deposit which you are told is to hold services. Should you decide to cancel, you are not given the deposit back as the company will tell you that they paid a penalty for the canceled service. This is not the case. Gate 1 banks your deposit – sometimes a year in advance of travel – and collect interest and pays NO cancellation fee to its vendors. If you are booking a tour, beware. Many times in the past, the owner, Dani Pipano is aware the tour will not be running or that MAJOR attractions advertised will not be available – however, employees are not allowed to tell the passenger instead are required to wait until just 14 days before travel to tell you that you won’t get to see what you’ve paid for.
Some positive reviews : Just returned from Gate1 11 day Venice, Florence, Rome, Sorrento Italy Tour which departed May 12. This was my 4th tour but first with Gate1. I could not have been more pleased. The tour manager, Francesco Fedeli was outstanding in all respects. So many things can go wrong with a tour group of 34 persons and Mr. Fedeli was on top of every detail and insured that we all had a great time. I can’t imagine there being a better tour manager for Italy in the business. The local guides were very knowledgeable and made our visits to sites in Venice, Florence, Rome and Capri much more enjoyable.
