"I have been hosting with Global Immersions for almost three years. I write to commend you and the Global Immersions Team on your professionalism and dedication to your international visitors and hosts. Your attention to detail, hands on approach, keeping your hosts informed with details and changes every step of the way throughout the duration of the stay and continued follow up and evaluation speaks to your "First Class Operation." I have never hosted with another agency or independently until recently when I was referred to an agency and hosted a single guest for one month. That single hosting experience is what compelled me to express my appreciation for your attention to detail and all that you do to ensure a successful homestay experience for all."
