"A wonderful experience. My daughter felt at home from the first moment. The family was lovely and provided all the necessary support. Everything is perfectly organized and if there is any unforeseen problem, they solve it immediately.
I recommend them 100%."

Glee gave me a trutly Canadian experience!"
