About Antonina Kisliakov


My cultural identity is Russian and I am an Australian.  I was brought up in a Russian speaking household in Australia to love all things Russian and to speak Russian, which of course I still speak well and thus being bilingual makes it all the more interesting. I have always considered myself to be Russian in many things!

Since 1972 I have been a travel agent and many –   have travelled through my company. My reviews speak for themselves.  In 2009 I moved to become a Home-Based Travel Agent and have never looked back. 

When the pandemic hit, the travel business stopped. Many said it would never revive. Some even suggested I give up on being a travel agent.  I refused to just give up as I was certain that in time, travel would resume and it is starting now. 

However I did not want to waste the time being depressed, I decided to be creative, especially with the negative comments I received when I rethought what can be done! I decided to add Wellness, Personal Care, Health & Beauty to my travel products and in time this is happening. It is indeed possible to travel with the wellness products as well as use them at home too. Honesty has always been my policy as well. Being frank about what I do, is best.

Skilled in Luxury Travel, Adventure Travel, Leisure Travel, Tour Management, Business Travel, and Hotel Booking Packages. Specialising in several destinations namely Russia (suspended due to war)   Uzbekistan, Central Asia,  USA, East Europe, Holy Land, Greece, Turkey, Vietnam, India, Maldives, Bali, Indonesia, Thailand, Dubai, USA.  UK/Europe. South & Central America.    Honeymoon and Romance Packages in Thailand, Maldives, Vietnam, India. See our Travel Health Shop online. See our various Travel and Wellness Pages on Facebook. Follow also on Instagram. Ask for my handle on Instagram and also am on LinkedIn and Twitter!

Being a professional travel agent in Australia too and being being self motivated, I am continually expanding our many destinations with my own network. We now have own network of Travel Advisors in many destinations which improves efficiency and wait times for responses will be reduced greatly.  

I have never been a dreamer, dreamers stay where they are all their lives. I have a vision of what can be done, I am a believer in doing things properly, honestly and without regrets. Those who dream will always dream! I have always moved on with my plans. Creating a vision with the right Mindset, Consistency (6 days a week-not Sundays and important Russian Orthodox Holidays), Persistency, Creating the right challenge for what can be perceived with lots of love and understanding as I do in my hobbies and businesses! I am always thinking about what plans God has for me. There is always lots to learn and do. ?

Gratitude to God is a very important thing. Make gratitude to God a habit & watch your life change for the better!! I am also a firm believer in Miracles too as have experienced a few!

Wellness & Travel are strongly intertwined.  Travel Advisor, Wellness Enthusiast, Wellness in Travel/Tourism.

In 2017 we spent a wonderful month in Russia. As we were travelling with friends who did not speak Russian we decided to organise a tour with guides through Gateway Travel. Their agent in Russia did a fabulous job of putting together an itinerary for us taking into account our specific requirements. Their English language guides were very knowledgeable and the hotels offered to us at our price point were eminently acceptable. The agent was only a phone call away when and if there were any problems. Airport and hotel pick ups were excellent.I would recommend Gateway Travel to anyone considering travelling to Russia.

I am a supplier for Tonia (not a traveller or client) I have worked with Tonia for over 6 years now to book her clients' holidays Tonia has always been a pleasure to work with and has always done exactly as asked to pass on all we asked to her clients, always ensuring to get the best possible prices and best hotels, tours and transfers according to her clients budget and requirements. Nothing was ever a problem or trouble for Tonia, always happy to oblige and she has always looked after her clients' needs wholeheartedly too. Personally Tonia's service skills are great and an awesome travel agent to work with and who takes care of all her clients. Totally recommend Tonia and her staff.

Since the mid 1990s I have known Antonina Kisliakov and been in regular contact with her. I can say that she has been very passionate and devoted in selling travel to Russia! She is very direct in what can be done and has always had an excellent reputation in all she has handled.Her package is as a rule very detailed and is always to amend or change to suit the client as I could see from her advertisements.Her knowledge of Russian language aa well as her personal experience of visiting Russia are a huge bonus to her travel activities. I can easily recommend her excellent travel agency services

It is some years now now that I used Antonina's travel services to arrange an extensive customised travel package. The trip across Russia, starting from St Petersburg and Moscow and heading east on the Trans-Siberian route, stopping in several cities along the way, was well organised and included flights, train tickets and accomodation. The accomodation included home stays which made the journey more interesting.

For our trip to Russia my wife and I engaged Antonina Kisliakov from Gateway Travel - Russian Travel and Tours Sydney. We wanted to travel across Russia longer than the standard 30 days and also have the option of multiple entries. Antonina Kisliakov from Gateway Travel - Russian Travel and Tours Sydney organised all required papers and visas plus a lot of general information about Russia. We highly recommend Antonina Kisliakov from Gateway Travel - Russian Travel and Tours Sydney regardless what your travel requirements are. Russia is very much underrated as a holiday destination. It’s a beautiful country, lots to see and friendly people. We divinely look forward to going back there again.

I was traveling alone and it was my first time in Russia. Antonina found out what I wanted to do, made sensible suggestions and arranged everything seamlessly, from flights to visa to accommodation. At her suggestion I had a personal guide most days. This added much to my trip. Guides in both St Petersburg and Moscow were very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for them. Everything was arranged so well and this contributed to the best and most educational trip I have ever had. Hope I can go againsoon

Antonina  was very helpful in organising my trip to a non western country. She always had the time to speak to me and offer valuable suggestions when travelling to foreign destinations. Her experience in travel to so many unique places on the planet gives her the ability to give a more personalised service that shopfront travel agencies do not.

I would thoroughly recommend Gateway Travel for all travel bookings to Russia. Prior to COVID-19 we booked a trip to Russia and everything went smoothly, except that there was some kind of delay in getting the visas issued. Tonia of Gateway Travel spoke to the Russian Visa Office in Sydney, and the visa was issued without any further delay. Well done Gateway Travel. Will certainly recommend your company.

I spent quite a few week in Russia using the services of Gateway Travel - Russian Travel and Tours. It was one of the best trips I ever had. We negotiated what and where I wanted to go and see. Hotel and a guide was arranged. I also am impressed by the driver who picked me up from and dropped me off at the airport. All staff were courteous. Itinerary was provided in advance of the actual travel day. The guides were knowledgeable. I strongly recommend the Gateway Travel to those who want to travel on your own or as a group.

In 2014 after a search for a travel agency that specialized in Russia. I contacted Tonia’s travel agency. Due, to my age and not knowing the language, the requirements I had included to be met at stations plus a driver/translator. My destination was, Oryol Oblast, and further East away from Oryol, trip arrangements were made for October 2014. I can’t praise Tonia, her staff, here in Australia and Russia highly enough in meeting my requirements. The trip was a sentimental journey for me and of a few days duration only. Unfortunately shortly before the journey could be finalized I had to cancel the trip for family reasons. Because of my age, it was not feasible to defer the journey to a later date. I have recommended Tonia’s Russian Travel and Tours to others and will continue to do so.Kingsley WA 6026.

We have used Tonia  for a number of years, and have found her passionate about what she is doing. Her knowledge of different parts of the world -Vietnam, Bali, Russia and the famous Trans Mongolian and Trans Siberian Railways, Greece, Turkey, Belarus, Ukraine, Central Europe, Holy Land, South America, Uzbekistan and other parts of Central Asia, Tanzania,  has always made travelling stress free and ultimately very interesting as we believe her own adventures has given us peace of mind. Recently I asked Tonia to find out some more about other countries and she was very happy to help us out. My partner and I highly recommended Tonia as a travel agent.
