My name is Lina and my background is Russian from Siberia in case you’re wondering. I love my homeland and dream to bring more tourists there, especially to some undiscovered beautiful Siberian landmarks.
I have 19 years of experience in the industry which has made me very confident and knowledgeable.
Being a travel agent, I have travelled extensively around the world including with family to skiing destinations like New Zealand, USA, Japan, Russia and Europe. Holidays to Fiji, Cook Islands, Asian destinations, cruising the Pacific Islands.
My Area of Speciality
Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan.
Eco Tours to Siberia – Baikal Lake, Altay Mountains and Kamchatka.
I can also assist in obtaining invitations and visas to Russia, to create and suggest itineraries for independent travellers, to book group tours as well as Trans – Siberian railway Journeys including Private Luxury Trains.
Efficient and cost-effective travel is very important for my business. Lina is our go-to person for domestic and international bookings as well as itinerary advice. Thanks to Lina, we saved thousands of dollars on our European trips and a lot of trouble when travelling to Russia. I have no hesitation in recommending Lina’s services to anyone wishing to travel smarter for business or pleasure.

I have recently returned from a wonderful trip to Russia. I was travelling with Lina, an itravel consultant, a native speaker of Russian but also fluent in English.
We were collected for our adventure by a small tour bus and then travelled overnight before arriving at our first tour base along the Chuiski Tract in the Altai Region.
Surrounded by glorious mountain and river scenery, our tour base provided basic facilities, as did the other tour bases we encountered. Other equipment provided was basic. Meals were very basic camp fare.
The activities planned daily were far from basic. We were treated to magnificent sights at every turn. Soaring, snow-capped mountains. Huge, rushing rivers. Waterfalls. Glaciers. Rock structures. Fascinating local towns. Animal life. Vegetation of every type.
Our cook, tour guide and driver looked after us every step of the way. Some challenging hiking tested us, but also brought us to yet more wonderful places to see.
Our small group of travel companions became our second family, a very enjoyable feature of the tour.
Our tour ended at the beautiful Lake Teletskoye. The old hotel accommodation here seemed like 5-star and we enjoyed having shower and bathroom facilities after our camping.
Our return coach trip was relatively comfortable, allowing us to see different parts of the countryside and some of the other interesting larger cities.
I am so pleased I went. It was the trip of a lifetime. But I couldn’t have done it without the dedicated concern that Lina consistently showed for my welfare. As well as being translator she smoothed over any hurdles big and small and was always a positive, sunny companion.

To feel a sense of trepidation when you book a tour to somewhere no one you know has been is I’m sure, quite natural. Then, to experience the incredible natural beauty of Lake Baikal, Listvyanka, and the Altai Mountains, is without doubt, one of my life’s greatest moments.
The Trans- Siberian railway, the mountain lakes and waterfalls, plus museum trips and constant consideration for your wellbeing was excellent. Our guides were both professional and most in tune to any perceived needs.
An experience that l cannot recommend highly enough.
