Gate 1 Travel has released a new system for categorizing our growing range of travel experiences. We hope that the new categories, which are now listed on the table of contents for each destination, will help our passengers find their preferred travel experience more quickly.
The new tour categories focus on a few key elements: season, itinerary, length, and group size. The list below can also be found on destination tables of contents by hovering over the blue question mark at the top of the “Category” column.
Classic – First class accommodations, balance of included sightseeing and free time, transfers & multiple meals included.
Off Season – Beat the crowds with a Classic tour itinerary in the off-season, and save on land services and airfare.
Partially Escorted – A portion of your itinerary will feature escorted touring services with additional time traveling independently.
Value – Tourist and/or first class accommodations, minimal inclusions with a variety of optional tours available to customize your experience.
Express – Short getaways featuring the highlights of a destination with maximum efficiency.
Luxury – Deluxe accommodations, unique & exclusive experiences, exceptional food, all touring and most gratuities included.
Small Group – Maximum 22 travelers, unique & boutique accommodations, enhanced cultural immersion
Independent – Explore at your own pace, without the included features of an escorted tour.
