Dear Ekaterina,

The trip was absolutely incredible, both in St. Petersburg and in Moscow!! The drivers were always on time, and polite, and the tour guides were phenomenal!!! They were so friendly, spoke amazing English, were extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating! Always offering to take photos, asking if the temperature in the car was ok, if you needed bathrooms, they even had umbrellas on hand for you in case it was raining, etc.!! Also what I appreciated the most was they offered great ‘inside’ information which was most helpful, like where good places to eat were and where to find almost anything you needed, like the best souvenirs! The accommodations were amazing, very clean, great locations, pleasant staff and the best breakfasts which was a nice way to start the day! Lastly, I very much appreciated how paper copies of the train tickets (St. Petersburg – Moscow and Moscow – Kiev) were faxed and also provided by the guides as well, for extra assurance that I had them, as well as the great care that was taken by the guides to make sure I got safely on the correct train at the correct time, it was such a relief!!!   My time in St. Petersburg and Moscow could not have been more pleasant and I look very forward to going back again very soon. While all the tour guides were exceptional, one in particular went above and beyond my expectations and really made the Vladimir-Suzdal excursion outstanding and very memorable for me. 

I am highly recommending your company for travel to Russia! Kind Regards, Sara


Thank you very much. You have made this so simple for us.

Hello Larisa,

I am sending you a short note to thank you very much for the travel assistance that you provided to me in planning my trip to Russia, Moscow, Kazan… for the FISU Universiade Games. I had a great time, and have only praise for the travel arrangements that you made for me. The Hotel Cosmos in Moscow was very nice; the Hotel Fatima in Kazan was modest but just the sort of experience that I was looking for; the train travel overnight from Moscow to Kazan was very pleasant, and the people in Russia – and particularly in Kazan – were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

I really enjoyed the experience and the adventure!

Thanks again for your assistance!




Hi Ekaterina, I thoroughly enjoyed my travel experience with Canadian Gateway touring Russia and Belarus this summer, and now I am ready to take another trip! Many Thanks,  Sara Korpan


HI, Larisa ! 

We had a wonderful time in Moscow and St. Petersburg.  Guide was punctual, and meal, accommodation and bus plus driver were very good.

All members of our group came home happy, sound and satisfied.  Thank you for your good work and sincerity.  

See you next year.

Hi Victoria,

I want to thank you for everything you arranged for my clients, who travelled to the Ukraine in June. They had a simply wonderful time. They loved the Frederik Koklen Hotel in Odessa – they could walk everywhere and felt extremely safe. They also couldn’t have been happier with their guide. She was truly outstanding and went above and beyond I did want to say a special thank you for putting up with my constant reminders/requests on such a small booking.

I really do appreciate it and you made me look good!

Thanks again.

Ellie Hender, CTC, MCC

Hi Ekaterina,

Mark and I are home safely. The trip was great. The two guides were fabulous. They spoke good english, were punctual and Mark and I considered them both friends when we left them.

Thanks again for all your help.

Hello Ekaterina,

I want to confirm that I have received my passport.  Thank you for your professional service and great communication.  I will be sure to recommend your company to others.

Thanks for all your help.



Nancy and I are back from our trip to Moscow and St.Petersburg.

Everything went very smoothly-our hotels were expecting us, the guides you contracted were just what we wanted, the driver who met us in Moscow was there, our train tickets were easy to manage, in short, a very good trip!


Your help has been amazing – I truly couldn’t have done this without you. Pleace accept my sincere thanks.

All the best,



Dear Canadian Gateway

I would like to let you know how much we appreciated the help of your employee, Larisa.

She has done an amazing job of getting us a Russian visa.

If it wasn’t for her I suspect we would not have been able to go on our trip.

It was a real pleasure dealing with her and I cant speak highly enough of her services
