Your service is outstanding. Helen was very helpful, patient, informative, supportive and professional. She rewrote our forms several times due to changes in my job, income, address and difficulties with my fiancee name and employment. I know why your agency is considered the best in the industry and highly referred.

I first registered with your company at the end of November 2015 and have since been corresponding with a lovely lady.
I am particularly attracted to Alla and will be travelling to meet her soon in Russia.
I have spoken to your staff in Russia a number of times and have been very impressed with Helen. You have a gem in her as I am sure you know.

Just wanted to comment on this great service you offer. The thought of having opportunities to reach out and build relationships with women of other cultures is very exciting with unlimited possibilities!
I’m somewhat biased; I just began communicating with Oksana, and personally believe she is the most beautiful woman on your site. Even through translation, her personality really stands out making her clearly different than most, even though these are only written letters.
Once again, thanks for all you do!

I hope all is going well with you. I wanted again to give you my sincere thanks for all of your help in meeting Ludmila and making my big adventure a reality. You are a very generous and beautiful person and I am very glad to have met you. I am planning on coming back to Russia this Fall to visit Ludmila. We will need to meet up again for dinner!! Have a great day and you will be part of my heart always!

Hello Dave (President "A Volga Girl"),
I would like to say that Helen has been Amazing with everything so far. She has gone above and beyond fullfiling my request. She does an amazing job with the translations during my skype calls with Maria. She has done a fantastic job helping me procure a custom made painting for Maria's upcoming birthday. She also was able to get a rose and card made up for her within a short time frame.
So I'm truly impressed with all the support so far from Helen.

Goodness, writing to you reminds me of a distant time when I first came to Volgagirl, started to write to you, and of course to my wonderful Natasha. Believe it or not those first letters were back in 2009. Time passes, and here now is Natasha with me in our home.... how amasing. Many thanks for the great part you played in that Helen.
My very best wishes to you Helen, and great to be able to write again to our family friend in Russia.

We are very grateful to you and your company for putting us together and now we would like to tell you that Thane and I are married. Our courtship was very fast, the first email was only the first week of July, 2014 and we talked daily via Skype for several hours. In September, we met face to face, I arrived to Florida and in October we were engaged. In December, I arrived the second time and got married on December, 26th 2014. We wish to tell everyone that fairy tales can come true and we are very happy together. Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year and a Merry Christmas!

Here is "Craig's" message below:
Hello Dave (President "A Volga Girl"),
Thanks you for the congratulations on the engagement.
I knew from the beginning that A Volga Girl was a step above other
international marriage agencies. I've used other agencies in the
past and I've done the group tours with AFA and Anastasia.
Although they were a lot of fun, the only thing I got form the group
tours were some good American male friends whom I am still in contact
with today. A Volga Girl, in my opinion, is the most likely place
for a man who seriously wants to marry one o these women to find
success. The reason is simple...you run an honest, straight
forward agency. There are no scams or professional daters and I
commend you and your staff for the way you conduct business. I
would never hesitate to recommend your services to other men seeking a
I do already have some of Maria's completed forms in
my possession (for Fiancé Visa Petition). We met with Helen Monday
afternoon and completed Maria's G-325A, birth certification, and letter
of intent. I don't go back to work until Monday, so I'll get
started on my forms right away. I'll be in touch and thanks again
Craig (Dallas, Texas, USA)
September 16, 2011
A big hello to you Helen, Dave and Lana!! Please feel free to use some or all of the words here if you like. I felt I needed to say some things because. well I honestly don't know why. Maybe just because I gained so much knowledge and experience through this process and when I started it would have been endlessly helpful to read just exactly what I have written here. The only thing that I ask is that you use my exact words if you decide to use any of them and not re-phrase anything. I simply would not want to have something up on the web that is misrepresentative of me in any way. If there are things here that you think would be useful for your perspective clients but you are worried about the way they are worded let me know and we can find a way to re-word my sentiments that will work for your purposes.
I am writing to announce my recent engagement to Inna . We became engaged on Tuesday September 6th. I may be romanticizing or simply flattering my relationship, but I like to think of Inna and I as a good example of a Russian-American love story. All of this may be superfluous but I would like to share my experiences and thoughts with you and possibly a "letter to the men" portion for all of the guys who may be thinking of using your services and would like to learn more about one man's experience and observations.
I first learned of your agency, as many have, by watching the National Geographic special. I was skeptical as I think most people would be. I sent several letters with no real investment because I did not trust the situation or the motives of those involved and I also was struggling with what it meant about me (are these just the actions of a desperate man or a man who has simply given up on the work of finding a good relationship?!?!?!?). I exchanged a few letters still feeling like it was a little bit of a fantasy land. Even though I did not believe that I could find the love of my life in Russia I still took the entire process seriously and filled out my profile with great care and honesty. I made sure to include all things that were "deal-breakers" if you will or that could be potential "deal-breakers" for a perspective partner (i.e. I do not drink alcohol, to some that is important also I am a single father, etc). I wanted any woman to know that I am not a false man or trying to be perfect. One important note I would like to make to American men about the Russian people is that they should not perceive the lack of smiling as a sign of unhappiness or disinterest. I know this is difficult for Americans to understand but the Russian people as a culture tend to maintain much more stoic facial expressions. You have to get over it. Any facial expression of happiness should be multiplied 10 fold to interpret it into American terms. Meaning that if your perspective lady gives you one of those big happy toothy smiles, the American equivalent would be woman jumping for joy, crying with happiness and screaming out loud with excitement all at the same time.
I first received a letter from Inna November 28, 2009. I was very flattered by the attention but also very distrustful. We corresponded often and I always took the thoughts, questions, concerns and sentiments of Inna seriously but I still was waiting for the other shoe to drop. We used Skype often which was interpreted by Helen (I believe this was a fantastic device to help the relationship grow) and of course wrote many letters as well. Through these communications I kept expecting that something I would say would frighten her off or reveal that she really was only looking for a golden ticket to America. As you might expect my distrust eventually led to a breakdown in communication. After a few months of not exchanging letters I received a letter from Inna. She simply said hello and informed me that she had thought of me often while we were not writing. I told her that I
had also thought of her often but that I truly could not trust the whole situation and could not continue to pursue contact.
Shortly after I sent that message (and by shortly I mean only a matter of moments later), I realized that I was being a complete and utter moron. Here I was thinking that I was only a golden ticket to America for this woman. She is an absolutely gorgeous woman who has been on this site since 2007! If I thought she didn't have as many opportunities to go to America as she wanted between 2007 and 2010 I was nuts. The truth is that if she was only on this site to "get to America", she surely would be there long ago. We had been sharing intimate details about our children, our thoughts, our worries and our joys for years. These realizations allowed me to apologize for my stupidity, stop questioning her motives and allow myself the wonderful relationship I had been looking for. At this point I should say that I do not think my skepticism was un-wise, just the opposite. Let's be honest there are plenty of reasons to be careful and we all know them. But you must also keep in mind the gigantic amount of uncertainty a Russian woman is facing to pursue love and a future. It is a fool who enters into this situation with blinders on about the risks to him but a bigger fool who does not look at it from the woman's perspective as well.
At this point I could really open my heart to Inna. After this I started looking for opportunities to go to Tolyatti. It was not long before I concluded that I had to just make it happen, that if I did not act I would keep procrastinating about it forever. I researched flights (I recommend looking at many sources but www.cheapoair.com is a fantastic one), hotels (I stayed at Hotel Chocolate and was VERY happy, Internet, restaurant, excellent cooked-to-order free breakfast, very clean, etc.) and
restaurants. I highly recommend Orient Express and John Silver's for restaurants. These are wonderful choices because they have English menus available, the food atmosphere is wonderful and they accept credit cards which is often not the case in Russia. John Silver's is more casual and Orient Express is perfect for that one biggest romantic evening of your trip.
In June of 2011 I flew to Tolyatti to meet Inna. I was able to learn a great deal about the Russian culture and Russian people. Let me tell you, there are a great many misrepresentations. I found the Russian people to be warmer and to have bigger hearts than Americans. Of course the same is true in Russia as in the states that people become increasingly sour and less pleasant as you get closer to the large cities such as Moscow but on average and especially in areas like Tolyatti the people are much nicer than the American people once you get on a one-to-one basis with them. We did use the interpretation services provided by Helen and Lana often while there (even by phone a few times on a moment's notice which was VERY, VERY helpful). Helen and Lana were priceless! I found them to both be wonderful women and they were both endlessly helpful. I have only had the pleasure of limited contact with Lana but I have worked with Helen often over the years and like to think I have found a wonderful and genuine friend in her.
By the end of my trip I decided I wanted Inna to meet my mother. I had not told any of my family that I was going to Russia (for the usual fears of stigma or criticism) but I decided that I needed to break my silence so that my mother could meet Inna. My mother had been battling cancer for years and was now losing the battle. I told my mother and we arranged for an interpreted Skype call assisted by Helen. To make it a convenient time for my ailing mother, Helen came to my hotel room late at night so that we could have the video call from there. Helen's assistance enabled my other to meet my future bride before she passed away (even though I did not know this would be the case at the time) and I will be forever grateful for that.
I returned home with many feelings and thoughts to sort out. One brief month later my mother passed away. Inna shared in my grief and was a great source of support. I finally accepted the reality that was staring me in the face. Inna was the one for me and I was helplessly in love with her.
I began work immediately on a return trip to Russia to ask for her hand. I wanted to express my love for her and my respect for her, her family and her culture by "doing things right" to the best of my ability. I mean let's face it, Russian woman dream of the same once-in-a-lifetime romance that any woman does. I wanted to make this come true for my beloved as much as possible. I had learned of the tradition of locking a lock upon engagement while I was in Russia. I purchased a large heart-shaped lock off of the Internet and had it engraved with our names in Russian to take with me to Russia. I also, of course, purchased a certain RING.
I returned on September the first which was my birthday. My Inna made a wonderful birthday for me. I had planned for a 12 day stay which included 7 days at her parent's house in the village where Inna grew up. Please let me point out here that I am currently between jobs and have just inherited some funds. All the men and the Russian women should realize that this type of trip is just not realistic for most. Please do not expect this is appropriate for many because it simply is not. You will get fired and spend your life's savings which will not help your beloved at all! I had the blessing of many things coming together at the same time to make this possible. It was only through the generosity of my mother and the dumb luck that I found myself between jobs for the first time in ten years that I could make such an extensive and expensive journey.
The journey was wonderful and the experience was priceless. I met all of the family that would become my family and had an amazing experience. I did run into a few health problems such as an injured knee and something resembling the flu, but I battled through all of it and did not let it dissuade me from the intentions of my trip.
I was shown a location in a park that was a large heart-shaped area with a bench that was just to celebrate love and lovers. I knew this was the place. The next day I asked Inna's parent's for their blessing to request her hand in marriage. I needed to do this via a translated document on my computer because it required far more Russian than my limited vocabulary could muster and it was WAY too important to take a chance with. Here I should point out that while this type of software is useful and may even be absolutely necessary in some situations in your courting you should in no way try to translate your own messages that you send through Volga Girl to your lady. I say this because I tried it and it simply does not work. There are too many pitfalls in interpersonal communication when you cannot see the other person's facial expressions or body language and
you cannot here their intonation. You will have constant misunderstandings and your messages will be wasted and lead to only confusion. Do yourself a massive favor, let Volga Girl staff translate your letters and your conversations and only use translation software as an absolute last resort.
It will make things work much more smoothly and hey! .I am speaking from experience. Besides that, the price of their translation simply cannot be beat. I found this to be the case with absolutely every service they provide. Do yourself a huge favor and use all of the services they offer. I went the extra step (as I always do) of pricing similar services or modes of transportation and the truth is that they provide AWESOME service at a price that is less than the usual going rate! It was all you could ask for.
After asking for her parent's blessing we had plans that evening to go to dinner in the nearby small city where we had visited that lover's spot. I laid my plans and learned my lines and we were all on our way in her father's car. I had asked her father to be ready with a camera and I proposed in front of Inna's parents and her daughter. All went well except the fact that I totally forgot how to ask her to be my wife and had to look at a note I had placed on my phone for just such an emergency. yes I was a boy scout and do try to always "be prepared", and yes I DID do this WHILE on one knee. Inna said yes and we closed the lock to symbolize our commitment (I highly recommend observing this tradition, I think it meant a lot to Inna and her whole family).
We are now preparing for our life together and anticipating the future. For the first time in my life I have not met someone that MIGHT be the one, I know I have met THE ONE. I do not regret my skepticism, but I am glad that I put in the time and effort to make an opportunity into a reality. To the guys I say it is slightly more than a billion percent worth it. There are sweet, beautiful, sexy, feminine, intelligent, loving, caring women out there that are looking for a good man. Let your concerns be present and keep you aware but do not let them stop you. There are fantastic women in Tolyatti who are ready to give their warm Russian hearts to a good, solid man. I like to think that Inna and I are proof of that.
Thanks again to Dave, Helen and Lana from Volga Girl for making my future possible. I truly owe my happiness and future to this service.

Hello Helen (Office
Again, I will never
be able to thank you enough!! Because of your company, I have found my
soul mate, the love of my life. (John & Svetlana were engaged in
Jan 2011 during his trip to Tolgliatti, Russia).

Hi Dave (Volgagirl President),
On November 19, Natalia along with children Denis and
Maksim will arrive here, to begin the next great step in our lives
together. What the future holds in store for us is up to us, and it is
simply a thrill with each step into the unknown! What a year it has been
and such a great adventure. When I first joined with Volga Girl in
December, 2009 I never could have dreamed what the next months would
hold in store. To look back and to see what was, then to see where this
incredible journey has taken me is the stuff that creates legends.
However legends are only based on reality. In contrast, what I have seen
with my own eyes and experienced for myself is real and true.
I never tire of viewing the Volga Girl web site,
reading about and seeing the people, some of which I have come to know.
Never has there been a lady such as Helen Bessonova! She is the supreme
Ambassador of Russia! The National Geographic special remains with me,
recorded and treasured. The familiar faces are truly special and with
each passing day become ingrained more into my consciousness. Volga Girl
is not simply a site where men and women can meet, it is the doorway to
hope; a place where fantasy thoughts and guessing ends and where the new
world begins. This new world has its share of ups and downs as men and
women, separated by continents and cultures, have a unique opportunity
to lay aside all pretenses and send a first message that goes something
like "Hello, my name is.." Neither Russian nor American knows what will
happen next. There are no canned, pre-arranged dates where one person
controls what is seen and what is hidden. Both parties are on unfamiliar
turf. The playing field, so to speak, has been leveled. A lack of
honesty by either party is soon revealed as well as the seriousness of
Dave, what little I can describe is simply not enough to bring
justice to the significance of Volga Girl. To someone who might be
thinking of employing the assistance of Volga Girl I would tell them
that they are not looking just at a real web site, operated and backed
by real, credible, sincere and experienced people, but they may taking
the next step at determining their own destiny. And isn't that what so
many are looking for, a chance to determine their own destiny?
In long and wonderful retrospect,
Jack (Houston, TX)

Hi Dave (Volgagirl President),
My trip went very well, getting through customs in
Moscow was not a problem, it took about 10 minutes. Helen (Office
Mgr.) and Larisa (his VG Lady) were at the airport (in Samara)
waiting for me which was great. Helen is a great asset to your
company. She took care of everything for me. The taxi company you
use is also great. Larisa and I got along very well together and
we talked that this (meeting) will probably lead to something special
for us. Your apartment was very nice and I am glad I stayed there.
Our trip to Moscow went well, and the taxi company (that transported me
from Togliatti to the Samara airport) was on time also. Thank you
once again and also thank Helen for me ,she was great. I will give
you updates about Larisa and I, we plan to see each other again soon.
Thank you once again.
Dear Dave, Helen and Lana;
I wanted to take a moment on my last morning in Togliatti to write you a
short letter. When I saw the pictures of the apartment, I was
impressed. But, having now spent the last 2 weeks here, I can say I
am quite pleased that I chose to spend these 2 weeks in your apartment!
When I arrived, the place was very clean, well maintained and looked
fabulous! You have everything here a person would need whether they are
staying for a few days, or 2 weeks like I have. The comfort of the
apartment has made me feel at home even though I am a great many miles
Having now met both Helen and Lana, I can see why Volga Girl is such a
Dave, these two girls are a wonderful asset! I sincerely wish Volga
Girl much success in 2010 and beyond! Helen, thank you so much for
extending such warm hospitality to me.
Sincerely, Robert (Michigan)

Hello Everybody at A Volga Girl & PSG Films,
What a year it has been since Olga arrived in LA?
We already have a new family tradition. Every year on December 13th, the
day Olga landed in the US, we will watch the video you made. First, Anna
(Producer), I trust you and your baby are happy and healthy. I truly
believe there is no more important work than that of parent. Second, we
love the way you put the documentary together. Mostly, I suppose because
Olga and I look really good! There is some sad moments, of course, but
we laugh hard at ourselves and other scenes. One we particularly like is
you and your wife (Elena), Dave (President, A Volga Girl), and you say
that if something happens to you she will go back to Russia, and she
says, no! Oh, and the way you set up the, "Will she or won't she arrive
scene?" What a riot! Please tell Brian I believe I know which scene he
said he wanted to put down the camera and give me a hug. Olga has all
her immigration cards, SS card, Oregon ID, and starts her advanced
English class in January. She has many friends here in Portland too. We
Thank you all so very much. I have had many exciting moments in my life,
but I will never forget this adventure. Olga and I are truly one of the
many successful couples. We wish you much love, joy and peace of mind
during this holiday season.

Hi Dave (A Volga Girl President)
I just returned from my 2 week trip to
Togliatti with Volga Girl and I must tell you that Helen, your office
Manager, was the Best. Her insight and knowledge was so helpful, the
honesty and integrity of your company is by far the best I have
experienced. The level of customer support was the best I have
ever experienced, there were no extra fees for anything I needed except
for translation with the girls when needed, Helen and Lana were the
The company apartment was great, very roomy and
comfortable and to be honest it was worth the money for all the room and
comfort, it was like home and I would be happy to stay there again. I
have traveled a lot of times with another company who does Romance Tours
to Ukraine and Russia and for many years and countless trips I always
thought they were the correct way to meet girls but now after traveling
with your company I am convinced that I wasted all my time and money
with the other company on Romance Tours. where you are placed in a bar
setting with a 100 girls and good luck finding your future wife. They
said email the girls you like and I can say with the other company you
had no idea if the girl got your email or not but the point is you never
know. How you do it is great - you always know if the girl got the email
and if she has any interest in you or not. Every girl that said she
would like to meet me did and I had such a wonderful time with each of
them. In two years of traveling to Ukraine on Romance Tours the only
girls I met were girls that just wanted money and nothing else. In
Togliatti, Russia, where your company is located, the girls were
fantastic, honest with high morals and family values and the only things
the girls wanted were to meet there future husband and have a serious
relationship. Your way of sending letters and building a serious
communication with 4 or 5 special girls is far better than Romance
Tours, that you meet 300 girls in 3 different towns and in reality you
had no time to build a serious relationship and nothing happens and that
is how they hook you to go on another Romance Tour with the hope on the
next trip you might meet a special girl the next time. I did back to
back tours with the other company with about 50 men to Ukraine and not
one person got engaged but with your company because I had such good
communication with real girls by the time I arrived I was almost
ready to move to the next step with my special girl. The girls in
Ukraine are fun but if you are looking for a wife you will find Russian
girls are far more serious as I said you want fun go to Ukraine but if
you want a wife you need to go to Russia and where your company is
located I can say honestly was the best I have experienced because of
your company and all the help I got and lets not forget the girls.
Thank you and your company , Bob (New York)
P.S. Bob is returning to Togliatti in Mar 2010 to further his
relationship with a special lady.

Michael and Elena Pipkin
Hi, my name is Michael and I found my true love here on the VolgaGirl website. She is everything I was looking for, and everything I was looking to avoid in an American woman. I got the idea to look for my perfect mate overseas because I was tired of the problems from “local” girls. Russia offers women who embody the old world values missing in our society.
We have been married now for almost one year. In February she gave birth to our beautiful son. Like all relationships, there are highs and lows. I can promise you that the highs far outnumber the lows. I never knew that I could be so happy. Even my family adores Elena.
Her taste in decorating has made our house a real home. I really look forward to coming home every night. And very soon Elena’s own daughter will join us here, and my family will be complete and together under one roof. It sure doesn’t get any better than this.

great agency! Dave, these two girls are a wonderful asset!
I sincerely wish Volga Girl much success in 2009 and beyond! Helen,
thank you so much for extending such warm hospitality to me.
December 24, 2007
Hi Helen, I've been back for a few hours now from my first trip to Russia... yes, exhausted... to say the least. I am very calm and determined. 2 traits I didn't have coupled together before my trip.
You've been instrumental in guiding me to attain my goals of love.
Lana has also been a divine tool along with everything you represent at A Volga Girl... I'm a poster child, an excellent spokesperson, and a living example that when your heart's in the right place God does make the way clear.
Anna is the woman of my dreams... and I know it will take a daily, sometimes momentarily, choice we both choose in creating our reality we aim to choose to create. I don't even need to say I have no regrets in running with my heart in the manner I did. But I have to say how grateful I am to have you, Lana, Dave and everyone else instrumental in Anna & I realizing our dreams.
This is just the beginning and I know we will have to work hard to continue our growing love.
I plan to return in 3 to 4 months. I will begin to save immediately. This time my trip will be minus all the pitfalls I made on this first trip. I would like to coincide my trip if and when the fiancee visa project is fully realized. Please keep me updated on this!
April 20, 2007
I had a great time in Russia!!
I owe you, Helen, Elena, Ludmilla, and Andre a very big thank you!!
I cannot imagine how frustrating it would have been without them.
Please give them my best regards and tell
them that I was glad I got to meet such nice people on this trip.
There a few thing I would like to request.
After talking to Nastya, she has little idea about what can happen next.
I would like her to contract Helen or someone at your office to give her
an "introduction" to the visa process, life in the US, expectations, etc.
I've communicated a lot to her and will continue to do so, but what I
can't really do is to tell her what the big cultural differences are.
I know your staff has more knowledge in this area. I was also hoping
that there are some Russian ladies with American husbands in the US that
she could communicate with.
I believe that we are at the point where
was are moving forward and I wish to have another visit to see her.
I want to book a vacation for both of us...I was thinking the Greek
I would like Nastya to be able to talk to
someone at your office anytime she has questions. I am willing to
