Gate1 tours is a terrible tour company. Gate1 cons customers into buying their Cancel For Any Reason insurance which they do not honor. This is a scam, plain and simple! Additionally, the quality of the tour is not remotely worth the money paid. I could not wish this...

My husband and I returned from the Discovery trip "Gems of SE Asia" in January 2016. Fascinating countries, great sites and travel companions. However, we were very disappointed with the tour group leader, e.g. leaving people behind in the airport; disengaged from...

Gate 1 comment is generic and disingenuous. When my wife complained regarding this same trip (she is not the person who posted this complaint), Gate 1 made no attempt to contact others who took the trip.

Gate 1 simply stated that the complaints would be reviewed by various departments (3, I believe). No mention that travelers would be contacted, when review would occur, or whether my wife would be informed of results (not holding our breath).

Having spent 3 weeks in India on our own during Feb 2012 - no Gate 1 - I have to comment on this post. I traveled with a Chennai native. We were both women in our forties. First of all, India is a very dirty country filled with very nice people who are quite poor and are brought up that it's every person for themselves. This is true in every third world country I have been to (and first world countries too!) I traveled to the N, S, E and W of India in those 3 wks and can say the hotels are for the most part very poor quality - remember that their rating system is vastly different from ours making a "3 star" hotel really a 1 star, and a "5 star" varies from an actual 5 (rare) to a 3 or 4 star. The elephant rides up the fort are fun, but they are not easy necessarily.

The trinket shops are overpriced and sell very cheap quality. You have to bargain! The Taj is wonderful and on my bucket list to see so I'm glad I went. Don't waste time paying for a safari in Ranthambore - you will not see any tigers - they keep killing them. DO see the ancient temples and forts! I am a seasoned traveler and was lucky not to get sick because I was OCD with washing every fruit with soap & water, then drying thoroughly with a napkin (which are hard to find in India, so I took extras from restaurants) then peeling the fruit! Do not eat salads, or anything that could have local water in it, unless it's hot coffee, tea, etc. Wipe the water off the plates or banana leaves at serve-yourself restaurants! Brush your teeth w/bottled water. I did all this and only got a cold as I tend to do when exposed to so much diesel (we did too many auto rickshaws).

India is definitely not for everyone, and the roads are a mess, so keep this in mind if booking a guided tour - you WILL be late to places! Overall I'm glad I saw this interesting country, but really have no desire to go back anytime soon.
