“I have been lucky to experience over seven trips with Photo Workshop Adventures. From my first trip a few years ago to the most recent trip, they keep getting better and better. They have an incredible network throughout out the world and one of the most extensive selections of photo experiences offered. I think that the key to the success of each trip has been the instructors that you work with. Every instructor has been very knowledgable, patient and works hard to insure that you get to create images that you enjoy. They bring a depth of experience that I have come to respect. Laurie, Michael, Seymour, Roman and Charles are all worthy of the title of "masters of their craft". They all inspire me while encouraging me to see things from many different perspectives. They truly care about the people on each excursion and love to help you progress. The accommodations on the trips are top notch and have never disappointed me. After each trip, I have felt that I have made some truly great friends and look forward to making more in the future. I would never have to hesitate to recommend Photo Workshop Adventures to anyone that wants a terrific combined photo/travel experience. It's nice to see a quality company like this succeed.”

I went on Safari in Southern Africa and Botswana via Photo Worksop Adventures September 2015. I am an experienced traveler and have high expectations. Everything on the trip was professional and top drawer. Incredibly fabulous accommodations, superb photography guidance in Wildlife photographer Mike Dexter, and terrific rangers to help find marvelous animals for you. I'm thrilled with my images from predators and elephants to stars and landscapes, and highly recommend this trip. It's one I will never forget.”

      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.
