Marta Grzesiak, CzechTourism, Media & Trade Manager:
“We started collaborating with Alina and Jekabs during the summer of 2021, when they took part at a press trip to Czech Republic. I was overjoyed with the quality of the work they provided – interesting articles, spectacular photographs, very good contact professionally and friendly approach, as well as excellent results in social media – all of that allowed to achieve campaign results above anything we expected! We will definitely continue collaborating with them! “
Beata Voitechovskaja, Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant, Lithuania:
“Alina & Jekabs were the cozy and warm couple I met at the INPP when they first arranged the visit to our facility. I was pleasantly surprised by their interest and enthusiasm for our project. We get a lot of general interest visitors, but there are always the authentic ones. Like this time, I gave them a tour of the NPP and I realised that these people are not only professionals in photography, whose work I really want to share with all our subscribers, but I was also impressed by Alina’s ability to clearly convey such specific and technical information, without big remarks about my narrative and history about the INPP. The article resulted to be informative, concise and interesting. It was a pleasure to work with them and I certainly give them my warmest feedback. All the best for the future work from the INPP”
Zane Eniņa, SIA “Komunikācijas aģentūra”, Project Director, Latvia:
“As part of the “Latvia – Found” campaign run for the Ministry of Culture for the Republic of Latvia, which spotlighted restored cultural sites and natural sites, we collaborated with several Latvian bloggers, including Alina & Jekabs Andrusaitis. During our collaboration, they were simultaneously highly professional and down-to-earth – Alina & Jekabs fully completed the agreed upon task, handled everything with a high degree of responsibility, and within the agreed-upon deadline. What resulted from the collaboration were moving photographs and blog entries, social media posts & mass media appearances. The bloggers gladly participated in the necessary publicity events. I wholeheartedly recommend Alina & Jekabs, for they are trustworthy, responsible and creative partners to collaborate with.”
Ieva Grigorenko, Gribu Atpūsties Marketing Lead, Latvia:
“Alina & Jekabs helped us share the story of the charming spa town Druskininkai in Lithuania – what to see, what to do, how to relax there and where to stay. It was high quality, detail oriented communication. We are extremely pleased with the content created, both in the terms of amount and quality. We especially appreciate how naturally Alina included every detail of what we wanted to show. Inspiring, informative and visually pleasing! I am thankful to Alina for the professional collaboration, as well as metrics and results presented. I am 100% sure that everything about this project was a success!“
Peep Rooks, NaTourEst Guide & Manager, Estonia:
“I contacted Alina & Jekabs to help us promote our Bear Watching Hide in Estonia to the Latvian public and we were very impressed with their professionalism and the effort they put into the project. Their visit gained much more attention than we had hoped for and it resulted in quality content and various media publications. Highly recommended if you are looking for travel content creators with a wide reach and good communication skills. “
