Advocate Abroad seeks client feedback to ensure continued high-quality service provision.
Teresa (and Tatiana) were excellent from the get go. She responded very quickly to the myriad of questions and helpfully explained the processes she helped with, she went to some lengths to make sure she answered all my questions. She was an extremely valuable helper in an otherwise confusing sea! Not to mention, great value for money for the fast and effective services she provided. Thank you again, Teresa.
