The group's stay in Fes went well, thank you very much! The Riad where the ten of them stayed for two nights was very nice and the family was friendly, while still giving the group their own personal space. The meals were very tasty and plentiful, and those preparing the meals took into consideration the food allergies there were in the group, which we really appreciate. The only complaint was that the air conditioning was not working in one of the bedrooms and for the first night the two men in that room were not given a fan that worked, so they ended up sleeping on the floor to try to stay cooler, which made it a very uncomfortable night for them. They were provided a fan for the second night, as the a/c was still not working. However each of the other bedrooms had functioning a/c units and were comfortable even in the heat of mid-July, for which everyone was very grateful. Thank you again for your help in making this homestay work, and we will definitely contact you again the next time we are planning a group trip to Fes!

Staying for several weeks in a Moroccan home was the most enjoyable time of my stay in Morocco. MHN was helpful and professional, and worked with me to find the right homestay. I would recommend them highly to everyone who desires such a rich experience.

This is Troy just writing you a quick note expressing my gratitude and appreciation for you and the rich blessing it was to experience the homestay and to get to know you, your wife, and your work. It was such a grace and gift to do the homestay, and I'd say that the odds are good that you may be hearing from me again in the future wanting to do another, longer one! Thank you so much for setting that up, especially for arranging one after finding out last minute that our original host was out of town. It's always so good to hear the thoughts and experiences of someone like yourself, having lived in a place like that for so long, and I learned a lot from listening to you and everything that you have drawn from the last 8 years. Thank you for your counsel, advice, and sharing. I was truly blessed. Hope all is well for you and Patti, and may He richly bless you in all that you do over there, your relationships and your business. Grace and peace,
Working with Moroccan Host Network was a wonderful and refreshing experience. Everything was professional, welcoming and the family I was placed with was out of this world amazing!!! Amazing food, wonderful people and an unforgettable experience. I was picked up from the airport, briefed on the culture and placed with the most kind, loving family ever. Thank you Moroccan Host Network for an experience I'll never forget.

I very much enjoyed my homestay of one month. It was both challenging and wonderful. I had to leave behind many of my normal comforts and ways of doing things, but I learned so much. It was an amazing help for my language learning as I was completely immersed in Arabic. I also felt like it was such a gift to get to learn first hand about family life in a Moroccan home. I feel that the relationship that I developed with the family will be a lasting one and look forward to the opportunity to return and visit them in the future.

Came too Morocco a few weeks ago ad had the opportunity to experience a homestay. I can easily say this this made my time there much more than I could have imagined it to be. It gave me an up-close look at the culture and and feel for how the morrocans live their every day lives. The family I was able to stay with was so gracious to me. I learned a lot from them about their culture and built a relationship with them that I will ever forget!
