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 17 years of experience in the travel industry which has made me very confident in what I am doing. I completed my Certificate IV in Travel and Tourism at William Angliss Institute of TAFE in 2001. I started my first job even before finishing study in 2000 after work experience at Safeway Travel – Eastern Europe Specialist Agency in Melbourne. Before becoming an itravel agent I also worked at Jetway Travel – very respectful, experienced South American Experts.
I can assist you with arranging various travel packages, tours, adventure travel, booking air tickets, cruises, help with visas and travel to Russia.
Being a travel agent, I have travelled a lot 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. Most recent I’ve been on educational trips to China featuring Yangtze River Cruise finishing in Shanghai and Abu Dhabi visiting Etihad Airways Training Academy and other top attractions.
Outside of work, my hobbies include: reading, dancing, travel of course and I also like to knit.
For all your travel needs, please don’t hesitate contact me. I look forward to working with you.
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.
