Guests' experiences

This is the way some customers are describing the experience.

“A view of life in Finland that we would not have been able to otherwise experience. It gave a richness to our visit to your country.”

"We had a marvellous day. Meeting hosts. They are a lovely couple. Just getting a chance to speak with them, learn what they like to do. We enjoyed the luscious meal - and they let us enjoy their sauna! All in all a memorable day."

Taiwan:  “I'm soooooooooo lucky to have a lovely and witty hostess, who arranged my arrival thoughtfully, prepared an extremely tasty meal, took time to learn about my culture, introduced me to Finnish culture clearly and welcomed me with her warm heart! I really enjoyed the dinner a lot!!!! I'd love to recommend everyone this special program:)))))))”

A retired couple from USA on Christmas time:  ”She was the complete host, wonderful time and a very memorable experience as was our total visit to Finland. Summation: the Finnish people are very, very hospitable, warm, friendly, helpful, gracious - what more can I say.”

 A participant of a group of 25 from USA in summer: ”It was a wonderful experience. When traveling it is such a comfort to be in a home with delightful companions. The food was delicious; I felt I had learned something of what the customs of the area were. Thank you very much.”
