It is clear the experience and expertise withing the company places it firmly at the tp of its field. I am extremely happy with IntoRussia Ltd and have the utmost confidence in its service. As an example, recently I has a problem with my application for a Russian Visa at the Russia Visa Application Centre in London. I telephoned IntoRussia Ltd and explained the problem. Through the clear, polite and professional advice and assistance of Alena, the problem was resolved immediately and the application process continued smoothly with a positive outcome. Alena reassured me that IntoRussia Ltd is available to help and assist and that I shouldn't hesitate to phone if there are any queries. Through this experience I am 100% certain of the highest quality and professional performance of IntoRussia Ltd. I am very happy indeed with the service. Yours faithfully, Mr Philip Miles
