Our team at InsideAsia Tours
The sun never sets on the InsideAsia Tours team (well, maybe on Sundays) and here you can meet the people behind our Southeast Asian tours and holidays.
We have a wide range of backgrounds and interests, but you can be sure that the one thing that ties us all together is a love of travel, foreign cultures and a passionate desire to share that with other people.
From the accounts department, through the travel consultant teams to the tour leaders and guides on the ground, you can rest assured that everything we do is to make sure you have the best possible experience in Asia.
Making sure we pay all our bills on time and invoices are never left unsettled for long.
Ilona hails from a lovely UNESCO listed city called Torun in Poland. Although she has never travelled to Asia, Ilona has always had a penchant for exploration - from backpacking across Europe at the age of sixteen to spending a year living in Boston, Massachusetts. This flair for adventure was behind her decision to study Travel and Hospitality Management in Poland before going on to work in the hotel reservations office in Bristol - where she now lives with her husband, Martin.
Working for InsideAsia Tours allows Ilona to combine her talent for accounting with her interest in the travel industry - the best of both worlds from her point of view. Through her years on the team, Ilona has not been able to avoid absorbing some of the Asia-centric knowledge and enthusiasm of her colleagues, and all of our destination countries are firmly on her travel to-do list.
When she's not balancing the books at work or exploring new and exciting places, Ilona can be found watching nature documentaries, cooking up some delicious healthy meals, getting in some exercise (she is an aspiring breakdancer!) - or dancing until she drops in her living room.
