Travel With The Best Tour Managers
In The Industry

No tour in the world is better than what your tour manager makes of it. With over 35 years of industry experience, we can easily spot what makes for a great tour guide. Confidence, charisma, and an ability to make everyone feel welcome cannot be taught in the classroom! Gate 1 is proud to say that we hire the best natural talent and train them to be the best in the industry. Unlike our competitors, you’ll see no outsourcing here!

You Can Have Confidence In Our
Tour Manager. Here's Why.

1. Employed & Trained by Gate 1

With Gate 1’s rigorous training for location, activities, language and customs, we rest easy knowing every traveller is in good hands. Put your tour manager to the test for yourself if you like! We’re sure they’ll answer every question you might have, as opposed to our competitors who will often outsource tour guides for a cheaper price and therefore aren’t as well trained.

2. You Only Tour with The Very Best

After every tour our clients are invited to review their tour guides. We are proud to employ staff with over 85% satisfactory rating – and with more than 300,000 people going on tour with us worldwide every year, this is no small achievement. This customer feedback is how we ensure we remain one of the best providers of escorted tours in the industry, and how you know that you’re getting the best value for your money!

3. Regionally Sourced Tour Guides

We want you to have an authentic experience, so we employ guides from the local regions to show you the secrets of the town. They live and breathe the city every day, so rest assured knowing they can give you the best restaurant recommendations and tips on skipping the tourist queues. Plus, they may have a couple other suggestions on things to do if you ask nicely!

4. Emphasis On Family

Our tour guides have the important job of creating a family whilst on tour. We entrust them with this important task because going on tour with strangers can be an isolating experience, and can leave you feeling slightly unsatisfied with the overall tour. Your tour guide fosters a friendly space where you can meet like-minded people and develop real friendships so that long after the trip ends, you can look back on your time together as a family and think to yourself – I should do that again.

India was a fantastic experience and we must admit, a real eye-opening experience. Our guide, Bnanu, was the best tour guide we have ever had! He went above and beyond the call of duty. Can’t wait to book our next adventure with Gate 1.
