I have never gone on a group tour I usually travel solo. I did not want my husband who doesn't travel well miss out on Peru so the easiest thing seemed to be to allow gate one to handle the details.
First for the $ gate 1 is a great value the top class accommodations in Lima, Cusco, Urbamba, and Puno were amazing. The cost of the trip and all the tours if calculated individually would have likely surpassed what we paid.
I was very happy with the guides and their knowledge. It was a very fast but filled 10 days. I also had free time to wander out on my own. The guides took great care with our safety and health in mind.
I personally am a back packer girl so group trips are a bit off for me but i would definitely use gate 1 again. They were able to get everything in that we wanted to see Machu Pichu, Uros Island, moray and Moras in 10 days when it may have taken me weeks solo. Yes I would use them again.
