Most of us can agree that traveling means more than just going from point A to point B. We crave the meaningful, precious experiences that lie in between, just waiting to be discovered.
Whether you go on a fun family vacation, enjoy each other on a romantic getaway or celebrate a special occasion with your family and friends, there's no better way to make the most of these experiences than to travel and explore new destinations and cultures.
After nearly 10 years as a travel professional and nearly 20 years in the event planning industry, I am the perfect agent to create a unique itinerary just for you.I believe that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to travel. I don’t work for any particular cruise line or tour operator. I am your advocate when it comes to planning every aspect of your trip.
I will not only make your final travel arrangements, but will consult you on all of your options so that you know what is available. My knowledge, expertise, and personal industry connections are at your service. Ultimately, I want each client I work with to come back from their trip having enjoyed experiences that have truly enriched their lives.
Although I work with clients who wish to visit any corner of the globe, I specialize in European and Caribbean destinations. I particularly love to book trips to Central and Eastern Europe, as I grew up in Russia and the Ukraine. Meandering down calm waters on a river cruise or strolling the streets of a charming small town are my favorite ways of exploring this region. I enjoy visiting world heritage sites and countryside vineyards, as well as festivals that occur every season of the year.
I am fluent in several languages, including:
This helps me to form personal and lasting relationships with travel professionals and suppliers in many destinations. I am able to secure my clients the best prices for their packages, while also including hidden gems in their itineraries that will enhance the entire travel experience.
I value professional development and continue to earn certifications and work with travel industry professionals in order to learn about the latest opportunities that are available for travelers. I love to provide my clients with personalized recommendations for tours, excursions, restaurants and accommodations as this allows them to completely relax and enjoy their trip.
One of my favorite sayings is, "Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer." So let me make you happier, wealthier, and wiser by taking you wherever in the world you want to go – from vacation dreams to your best memories.

Amazing Honeymoon in Austria
We owe our amazing honeymoon all to Marina! Thanks to her planning expertise and tireless efforts to make our honeymoon dreams a reality, our trip to Austria was a beautiful, stress-free and fun experience of a lifetime. We didn't have to worry about transportation, choosing which sites to see and when, or which hotels to book- she figured that all out for us. She also listened to our input and went above and beyond to make our wishes work within our budget and schedule. I can't imagine what it would've been like without her help!
