Pack Your Bags

If you enjoy the value and convenience of escorted tours, but also crave a privileged, intimate view of local cultures that larger groups can't provide, then you'll love Discovery Tours by Gate 1! We know that when you journey halfway around the world, you don't want anything to stand between you and getting to the heart of your destination, least of all the size of your group. Traveling in a small group of no more than 22, we'll cover more ground with ease and agility, leave the cookie-cutter itineraries behind, and meet the locals up close - without crushing your travel budget.
