A friend of mine suggested I post this on Gate 1's site (from my wall), so here goes:

I was able to call Gate 1 and transfer the credit from our canceled Greece trip toward the unpaid balance of our Galapagos trip which is scheduled for September of next year. Once the refund comes in from Austrian Airlines for the airfare, I'll be able to transfer that, as well. This sort of ease of customer service is one of the many things I love about Gate 1 Travel.

The first trip we took with them, the one to Turkey in 2010, we were deciding whether or not to book it, and we missed the advertised discount ($400 per person) by one day. I decided to call them, and see if they might still honor it one day late, as it would make a difference as to whether we would book the trip or not. They accommodated us and gave us the discount. First impressions matter, and this made a good one. They continue to impress and, ultimately, it was a wise business move on their part, since we've booked many other trips since then, as well as had friends book with them due to our recommendation.

Of course, the fact that they have excellent tours which are affordable on a budget, along with top notch tour guides, is the premier reason why the Galapagos was going to be our 14th trip using Gate 1.

What a coincidence that the Greece trip which got canceled (due to Covid) was our 13th booking with them. Still, I like the number 13, so no triskaidekaphobia here.

The Namibia trip was very enjoyable! Lots of beautiful scenery, both inland in the deserts and along the coast. We saw lots of wildlife in Etosha National Park and I took some amazing pictures of both the animals and the desert scenery. All in all, a great trip.

We had a wonderful trip in Japan. Our trip leader Makiko was sooo awesome. She was very well organized and filled with knowledge. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip all because of Makiko’s professionalism and organizational skills. The program covered so many aspects of Japan cultures and history provided us with wealth of information!
