+++ WARNING - REVIEW POSTED BY PROGRAM STAFF FROM ELEP+++ THE FOLLOWING REVIEW HAS BEEN POSTED BY PROGRAM STAFF FROM ELEP. REVIEWS TO BE ONLY POSTED BY PARTICIPANTS - NOT COMPANIES. PLEASE SEE COMMENTS BY ABROAD REVIEWS ADMIN BELOW +++ I want to thank ELEP for looking after our 17 year old son so well during his 3 week trip this summer to Ecuador. As parents, we were obviously concerned about him travelling alone to Ecuador, getting to his final destination, and being looked after well. I have to say that ELEP provided the utmost care, and an excellent program for Cosmo. You met Cosmo at the airport on arrival, accompanied him on the bus ride to the village where he stayed with a very welcoming and caring host family. Each day he did volunteer construction work in the morning and then had one on one spanish lessons in the afternoon. Overall we wanted him to be immersed in family life, volunteer and meet others from around the world, further his spanish, appreciate life and have fun. ELEP succeeded, Thank you. I will strongly recommend you to my friends, and please share our experiences with other potential volunteers.
