My trip to Nepal was such a sudden one, only four days before the departure day. Luckily, I met this Tour and Travel Agency. Ganesh really helped a lot. Our tour guide, Ramesh, also very helpful. Our purpose of visiting Nepal was to see the Buddhist sites. Both Ramesh and Ganesh were very helpful. There were two sites that werent on the Tour List, but they were willing to accompany us there. This impressed us a lot. Thank you so very much to Ganesh and Ramesh.

I had a wonderful experience with Glorious Himalaya tours -- I planned one trip initially, had to cancel, then was able to plan a different, shorter trip within three days of starting. Ganesh was extremely friendly and helpful and arranged everything quickly and competently.

What was more impressive was the continued follow-up throughout my trip. Ganesh made a point to check in daily to make sure things were going well and see if I needed anything else. Even after the tour was over, he kept checking in to make sure I made it home safely. As a solo female traveler, it was so comforting to know that I had someone I could reach out to in Nepal if I ever needed help or advice. If I ever get to go back, I know who I'm contacting!

We booked a trekking through Glorious Himalaya on short notice. They arranged us a guide and porters as well as the plane tickets to Lukla quickly. Communication was clear, fast and reliable - something we cannot say from other agencies we have tested. Also the pricing was fair. Glorious Himalaya understood our needs and organized a very reliable and friendly guide and very friendly porters which was especially important since we were traveling with two kids.The guide Dak Man and three porters Ramzi, Eka and Karna especially looked for the safety of the kids at all times which we really valued a lot. At the same time they gave us a good introduction into the local culture and customs. They were always on time and reliable. Eyerything worked out smoothly and we had a great time enjoying the spectacular views in Khumbu.

        About Signature Collection by Gate 1

        A unique collection of luxury trips designed by Gate 1 travel.

        What Makes Gate 1 Signature Collection Stand Out?

        These are luxury minded trips with a local focus. Guides are all local experts, from and living in the destination you’re visiting. Each itinerary features exclusive experiences. Groups are small and each day is full of activity but well balanced.

        They focus on offering only a select group of trips in this special collection - allowing them the freedom to create truly spectacular itineraries - which include more inclusions in the price than their other collections.

        The tagline is “More Luxury for Less”. These tours may not be in same luxury travel class if you’re used to Abercrombie & Kent, however where comfort and extravagance meets fun and busy travel days of sightseeing and tours, you’ll find Gate 1 Signature Collection.

        Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

        Those travelers who are willing to spend a little bit more for a 4-5 star experience, will probably find a sweet spot with Gate 1 Signature tours. These trips tend to be attended by older travelers, in the 50+ range.  

        Don’t expect too much strenuous activity. You can expect easy paced walks, guided tours and lectures, and stops to explore interesting cultural sites and historical attractions.

        While some of these cultural experiences, included in their “Signature Experiences”, are truly unique, be wary that many of these inclusions are fairly standard offerings - such as a hot air balloon ride over the African savannah. So the luxury experience of exclusivity you may be expecting is to be taken with a grain of salt. These tours offer wonderful experiences - but the destinations or activities are not always particularly uncommon or rare.  

        Top Destinations

        They currently don’t offer an overly extensive list of countries, but tours do go all over the world. This includes Central Europe, Spain, and the UK, Israel, Jordan and Morocco, Peru, Southeast Asia, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

        Gate 1 Signature Collection Travel Style

        Signature Collection tours with Gate 1 aim for comfort, ease, and unique cultural experiences. Like their other brands, Gate 1’s Signature Collection is about making sure your sightseeing is maximized, and the price is right for the experience.

        Most sightseeing, meals, wifi, tips, and their “Signature Experiences” are included in the itinerary price - unlike Gate 1’s main brand which offers less inclusions. This type of itinerary more helpful to budget travelers wishing to pick and choose which activities they would like to pay for. Gate 1 Signature Tours, however, are best suited to those who want more inclusions and less hassle to have to decide on how to spend their travel time.

        Why Choose a Tour with Gate 1 Signature Collection?

        If you’re an older traveler looking for a boutique, comfortable, and well paced tour, the Signature tours may suit you very well. Travelers love the customer service, attention to detail, and depth of knowledge the guides bring to each day on the tour. There is also a good balance of free time and optional additional sightseeing opportunities.

        All tours feature included “Signature Experiences” which are the main highlights that make the Signature Collection tours stand out from the other Gate 1 brands. These are unique excursions, usually with a strong cultural focus - such as an evening of Irish music in Galway, or a traditional dinner in the deserts of Morocco. They also often include lectures that explore a destinations history or a specific facet of the culture.
